Respondent authority: Zollamt Eisenstadt Flughafen Wien

Questions referred


Does the exception specified in point (c) of note 1 to Chapter 93 of the Combined Nomenclature (Part II of Annex I to Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff (1), as amended by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1001/2013 of 4 October 2013) (2), which is worded ‘armoured fighting vehicles (heading 8710)’, apply also to ‘parts thereof’?


Must note 3 to Section XVII of the Combined Nomenclature be interpreted as meaning that a ‘weapons station (armoured turret)’ which may be used on armoured fighting vehicles or on ‘mobile maritime transport systems’ or in stationary installations must be classified under heading 8710 as a part of an armoured fighting vehicle because that weapons station was imported by the manufacturer of armoured fighting vehicles for the production or assembly of armoured fighting vehicles and is used in fact for that purpose?
