Except where their context or Note 4 to this Chapter otherwise requires, the headings of this Chapter cover only products which are in the crude state or which have been washed (even with chemical substances eliminating the impurities without changing the structure of the product), crushed, ground, powdered, levigated, sifted, screened, concentrated by flotation, magnetic separation or other mechanical or physical processes (except crystallisation), but not products which have been roasted, calcined, obtained by mixing or subjected to processing beyond that mentioned in each heading.

    The products of this Chapter may contain an added anti-dusting agent, provided that such addition does not render the product particularly suitable for specific use rather than for general use.
  2. This Chapter does not cover:
    1. Sublimed sulphur, precipitated sulphur or colloidal sulphur (2802.00.00);
    2. Earth colours containing 70% or more by weight of combined iron evaluated as Fe2O3 (2821);

    4. Perfumery, cosmetic or toilet preparations (Chapter 33);
    5. Setts, curbstones or flagstones (6801.00.00); mosaic cubes or the like (6802); roofing, facing or damp course slates (6803.00.00);
