b) Supporting belts or other support articles of textile material, whose intended effecton the organ to be supported or held derives solely from their elasticity (for example, maternity belts, thoracic support bandages, abdominal support bandages, supports for joints or muscles) (Section XI);

c) Refractory goods of Heading 6903; ceramic wares for laboratory, chemical or other technical uses, of Heading 6909;

k) Articles of Chapter 95;

l) Capacity measures, which are to be classified according to their constituent material; or

m) Spools, reels or similar supports (which are to be classified according to their constituent material, for example, in Heading 3923 or Section XV).

2) Subject Note 1 above, parts and accessories for machines, apparatus, instruments or articles of this Chapter are to be classified according to the following rules :

a) Parts and accessories which are goods included in any of the headings of this Chapter or of Chapter 84, 85 or 91 (other than Headings 8485, 8548 or 9033) are in all cases to be classified in their respective headings;

b) Other parts and accessories, if suitable for use solely or principally with a particular kind of machine instrument or apparatus, or with a number of machines, instruments or apparatus of the same heading (including a machine, instrument or apparatus of Headings 9010, 9013 or 9031) are to be classified with the machines, instruments or apparatus of that kind;

c) All other parts and accessories are to be classified in Heading 9033.

3) The provisions of Note 4 to Section XVI apply also to this Chapter.

4) Heading 9005 does not apply to telescopic sight for fitting to arms, periscopic telescopes for fitting to submarines or tanks, or to telescopes for machines, appliances, instruments or apparatus of this Chapter or Section XVI; such telescopic sights and telescopes are to be classified in Heading 9013.

5) Measuring or checking optical instruments, appliances or machines which, but for this Note, could be classified both in Heading 9013 and in Heading 9031 are to be classified in Heading 9031.

6) for the purpose of heading 9021, the expression " orthpedic appliances" means appliances for :

(i) - Preventing or correcting bodily deformities; or

(ii) - Supporting or holding parts of the body following an illness, operation or injury. Orthopedic appliances include footwear and special insoles designed to correct orthopedic conditions, provided that they are either (1) made to measure, or (2) mass produced, presented singly and not in pairs and designed to fit either foot equally.

7) Heading 9032 applies only to:

(a) Instruments and apparatus for automatically controlling the flow , level, pressure or other variables of liquids or gases, or for automatically controlling temperature, whether or not their operation depends on an electrical phenomenon which variesm according to the factor to be automatically controlled, which are designed to bring this factor to, and maitain it at , a desired value, stabilised against disturbances, by constantly or periodically measuring its actual value; and

b) automatic regulators of electrical quantities, and instruments or apparatus foraumatically controlling non-electrical quantities the operation of which depends on an electrical phenomenon varying according to the factor to be controlled, which aredesigned to bring this factor to, and maintain in at, a desired value, stabilised against disturbances, constantly or periodically measuring its actual value.
