Note

  • 1. Heading 2309 includes products of a kind used in animal feeding, not elsewhere specified or included, obtained by processing vegetable or animal materials to such an extent that they have lost the essential characteristics of the original material, other than vegetable waste, vegetable residues and by-products of such processing.

Subheading note

  • 1. For the purposes of subheading 230641, the expression "low erucic acid rape or colza seeds" means seeds as defined in subheading note 1 to Chapter 12.

Additional notes

  • 1. Subheadings 23031011 and 23031019 include only residues from the manufacture of starch from maize and do not cover blends of such residues with products derived from other plants or products derived from maize otherwise than in the course of the production of starch by the wet process. Their starch content may not exceed 28 % by weight on the dry product, in accordance with the method contained in Annex III, part L, to Commission Regulation (EC) No 152/2009, and their fat content cannot exceed 4,5 % by weight on the dry product, determined in accordance with the method contained in Annex III, part H, to Commission Regulation (EC) No 152/2009.
  • 2. Subheading 23069005 includes only residues from the extraction of oil of germs of maize and containing the following ingredients in the quantities specified, calculated by weight on the dry product: Moreover, such residues shall not contain ingredients which are not obtained from maize grains.For the determination of the starch and protein content, the methods set out in Commission Regulation (EC) No 152/2009, Annex III, parts L and C, are to be applied.For the determination of the oil and moisture content, the methods set out in Commission Regulation (EC) No 152/2009, Annex III, parts H and A, respectively, are to be applied.Products containing components from parts of maize grains which have been added after processing and have not been subjected to the oil extraction process are excluded.
    • (a) products of an oil content of less than 3 %:
      • - starch content: less than 45 %,
      • - protein content (nitrogen content × 6,25): not less than 11,5 %;
    • (b) products of an oil content of not less than 3 % and not more than 8 %:
      • - starch content: less than 45 %,
      • - protein content (nitrogen content × 6,25): not less than 13 %.
  • 3. For the purposes of subheadings 23070011, 23070019, 23080011 and 23080019, the following expressions shall have the meanings hereby assigned to them:
    • - "actual alcoholic strength by mass": the number of kilograms of pure alcohol contained in 100 kg of the product,
    • - "potential alcoholic strength by mass": the number of kilograms of pure alcohol capable of being produced by total fermentation of the sugars contained in 100 kg of the product,
    • - "total alcoholic strength by mass": the sum of the actual and potential alcoholic strengths by mass,
    • - "% mas": the symbol for alcoholic strength by mass.
  • 4. For the purposes of subheadings 23091011 to 23091070 and 23099031 to 23099070, the expression "milk products" means the products of headings 0401, 0402, 0404, 0405 and 0406 and of subheadings 04031011 to 04031039, 04039011 to 04039069, 17021100, 17021900 and 21069051.
  • 5. Subheading 23099020 includes only residues from the manufacture of starch from maize, and does not cover blends of such residues with products derived from other plants or products derived from maize otherwise than in the course of the production of starch by the wet process, containing: These products may also contain residues from the extraction of maize germ oil by the wet milling process.Their starch content may not exceed 28 % by weight on the dry product in accordance with the method contained in Annex III, part L, to Commission Regulation (EC) No 152/2009, their fat content may not exceed 4,5 % by weight on the dry product determined in accordance with the method contained in Annex III, part H, to Commission Regulation (EC) No 152/2009, and their protein content may not exceed 40 % on the dry product determined in accordance with the method contained in Annex III, part C, to Commission Regulation (EC) No 152/2009.
    • - screenings from maize used in the wet process in a proportion not exceeding 15 % by weight, and/or
    • - residues of maize steep-water, from the wet process, including residues of steep-water used for the manufacture of alcohol or of other starch derived products.
