COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 210/85

of 25 January 1985

classifying goods in subheading 21.07 G I d) 1 of the Common Customs Tariff

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 97/69 of 16 January 1969 on measures to be taken for uniform application of the nomenclature of the Common Customs Tariff (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2055/84 (2), and in particular Article 3 thereof,

Whereas, in order to ensure that the Common Customs Tariff nomenclature is applied uniformly, measures must be taken concerning the classification of the following products put up for sale by retail:

(a) pills having the following composition (per pill):

1.2.3 // - vitamin A // 2 000 // UI // - vitamin C // 60 // mg // - vitamin D // 200 // IU // - vitamin E // 12 // IU // - vitamin B1 // 1,1 // mg // - vitamin B2 // 1,2 // mg // - vitamin B6 // 2 // mg // - niacinamide // 13 // mg // - calcium pentothenate // 4,3 // mg // - vitamin B12 // 3 // mcg // - folic acid // 50 // mcg // - biotin // 100 // mcg // - iron // 10 // mg // - zinc // 7,5 // mg // - manganese // 2 // mg // - copper // 1 // mg // - molybdenum // 150 // mcg // - iodine // 75 // mcg // - selenium // 50 // mcg // - chromium // 50 // mcg // - sucrose (including invert sugar expressed as sucrose) // 33 // % // - water approximately // 7 // %;

(b) effervescent pills having the following composition (per pill):

1.2.3 // - vitamin B1 // 1,1 // mg // - vitamin B2 // 1,5 // mg // - vitamin B6 // 1,4 // mg // - vitamin B12 // 5 // mcg // - vitamin C // 75 // mg // - vitamin E // 7 // mg // - niacinamide // 11 // mg // - calcium pentothenate // 10 // mg // - sucrose (including invert sugar expressed as sucrose) // 48 // % // - effervescent salts, orange flavouring and saccharin; // //

Whereas heading No 30.03 of the Common Customs Tariff annexed to Council Regulation (EEC) No 950/68 (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3400/84 (4), relates in particular to medicaments;

Whereas heading No 21.07 relates to food preparations not elsewhere specified or included;

Whereas the products in question do not comply with the provisions of note 1 to Chapter 30 and therefore cannot be regarded as medicaments of heading No 30.03;

Whereas they have the characteristics of food supplement containing vitamins and mineral salts and intended to keep the body in good health and should be regarded as food preparations; whereas in absence of a more specific heading, they should be classified in heading No 21.07; whereas, within that heading, subheading 21.07 G I d) 1 is the most appropriate;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Common Customs Tariff Nomenclature,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
