Sir/Madam,

 

            References have been received regarding divergent practices being followed by field formations regarding classification of Chlorinated Paraffins/Chloroparaffins.

 

2.         The matter has been examined by the Board.

Also in the Budget, 2010, the specific sub heading 27122010 covering Chlorinated Paraffin Waxes has been deleted from the tariff. This item is therefore, classifiable under 340490 of Customs Tariff Act, 1975. Further, regarding classification of Chlorinated Paraffins / Chloroparaffins (in liquid form), the HSN Explanatory Notes  (B) (9) under Heading 38.21 clarifies that Chloroparaffins in Liquid from are covered under the heading 3824.

 

3.         Accordingly it is clarified that:
