CHAPTER 54

 Notes.

1.-Throughout the Nomenclature, the term " man-made fibres " means staple fibres and filaments of organic
  polymers produced by manufacturing processes, either :

(a)  By polymerisation of organic monomers, such as polyamides, polyesters, polyurethanes or polyvinyl
      derivatives; or

(b)  By chemical transformation of natural organic polymers (for example, cellulose, casein, proteins or algae),
      such as viscose rayon, cellulose acetate, cupro or alginates.

  The terms " synthetic " and " artificial ", used in relation to fibres, mean : synthetic : fibres as defined at (a);
 artificial : fibres as defined at (b).

  The terms " man-made ", " synthetic " and " artificial " shall have the same meanings when used in relation to "
 textile materials ".

2.-Headings 54.02 and 54.03 do not apply to synthetic or artificial filament tow of Chapter 55.
