  • implemented by the Tariff (Harmonised System) Amendment Order 2001 (which also comes into force on 1 January 2002).

As is required by section 78(3) of the Customs and Excise Act 1996, none of the amendments alters duties, or exemptions from duty, under that Act, applicable to goods classified under the items amended.
