   (ix) For the purposes of chapters 30 and 31, heading 3302, subheading 3502.20, headings 3506 through 3507, heading 3707 and chapters 39 and 40, the deliberate and proportionally controlled mixing or blending (including dispersing) of materials to conform to predetermined specifications which results in the production of a good having physical or chemical characteristics which are relevant to the purposes or uses of the good and are different from the input materials is considered to be origin conferring for purposes of this note.

(x) For the purposes of chapters 30, 31 and 39, the following shall be considered to be origin conferring for purposes of this note:

(A) the deliberate and controlled reduction in particle size of a good, other than by merely crushing (or pressing) resulting in a good having a defined particle size, defined particle size distribution or defined surface area, which are relevant to the purposes of the resulting good and have different physical or chemical characteristics from the input materials; or

(B) the deliberate and controlled modification in particle size of a good, other than by merely pressing, resulting in a good having a defined particle size, defined particle size distribution or defined surface area, which are relevant to the purposes of the resulting good and have different physical or chemical characteristics from the input materials.

(xi) For the purposes of chapters 28 through 32, 35 and 38, the production of standards materials is considered to be origin conferring for purposes of this note. The term “standards materials” (including standard solutions) means preparations suitable for analytical, calibrating or reference uses having precise degrees of purity or proportions which are certified by the manufacturer.

(xii) For the purposes of chapters 28 through 32, 35 and 39, the isolation or separation of isomers from mixtures of isomers shall be considered origin conferring for purposes of this note.

(xiii) For the purposes of chapters 28 through 38, a nonoriginating material/component will not be deemed to have satisfied all applicable requirements of these rules by reason of a change from one tariff classification to another merely as the result of the separation of one or more individual materials or components from a man-made mixture unless the isolated material/component, itself, also underwent a chemical reaction.

(n) Change in tariff classification rules. [NOTE: Not updated for Pres.Proc. 8771, effective Feb. 3, 2012]
