New classification denatured alcohol
On January 26, 2013 the European Commission has published a commission implementing regulation for CN-code 2207 20 00. Products of CN-code 2207 20 00 contain ethylalcohol and ethyl-tertiair-butylether and can be used as a biofuel which are usually classified under heading 3824 . We would like to inform you that classification under heading 2207 attracts a much higher duty rate than biofuel classified under 3824.
