1937

Summary

The introduction to the first volume of the Draft Customs Nomenclature quotes a passage from a report by the Sub-Committee of Experts to the Economic Committee dealing with the question of the application of the common Customs nomenclature. [...] This passage may perhaps require explanation and the following observations are designed to show as clearly as possible —mainly with the help of practical illustrations—the working of the system contemplated by the experts for adapting the nomenclature elaborated by them to the special requirements of the several States without prejudicing the uniformity of the tariff nomenclature which the Leagu [...] In other words the 991 basic headings are such—by reason of the nature and character of the goods or categories of goods comprised therein—that in the opinion of the Sub-Committee they should all be included in every Customs tariff to the exclusion of all others. [...] The restrictions on the freedom to modify and alter the specifications of the commodities contained in the draft are fully warranted by the fact that the Sub-Committee chose and established these specifications after careful reflection and on the basis of technical or rational principles the violation of which would disturb the structure and balance of the whole of its work. [...] In the case of these products the draft even abandons the principle adopted in the preceding chapters of showing separately those articles which are the products of the preserved foods industry or those placed on the market in hermetically sealed receptacles.
