Classification is determined by the provisions of general rules 1, 2 (a) and 6 of the combined nomenclature and the texts of CN codes 8207, 8207 90 and 8207 90 10.

Having a working surface of synthetic diamond, these items cannot be classified in heading No 8209.

2.

A colour monitor, capable of accepting a signal only from the central processing unit of an automatic data processing machine. The monitor is not capable of reproducing a colour image from a composite video signal.

8471 92 90

Classification is determined by the provisions of general rules 1 and 6 of the combined nomenclature, Note 5 B to Chapter 84 and the texts of CN codes 8471, 8471 92 and 8471 92 90.
