Appendix

to the order of Customs Service of RM of September 19, 2011 No. 286-O

Methodology of classification of some types of motor transport

This methodology was developed on the basis of the Explanations to the Harmonized commodity description and coding system developed by World Customs Organization, one of the parties of which is the Republic of Moldova (The Section XVII, group 87, goods items 8703, 8704), the Combined commodity nomenclature approved by the Law No. 172 of July 25 2014, with subsequent changes, the compendium of the classification opinions developed by World Customs Organization, and takzhezucheniye of the international practice.

Classification of cars in goods item 8703 "Cars the passenger and other motor vehicles intended mainly for transportation of people (except motor vehicles of goods item 87.02), including passenger-and-freight vans and race cars", it is determined by some signs which are specified that these vehicles are generally intended for transportation of people, but not for cargo transportation (goods item 8704).

These signs are applicable in case of classification of motor vehicles which usually have the fully loaded mass of the vehicle less than 5 tons and which have the single closed internal space including zone for the driver and passengers and other zone which can be used for transportation of both people, and loads. This category usually joins the vehicles known as "multi-purpose" vehicles (for example, the vehicles like vans servicing sports cars, some cars like the pickup).

In this goods item the term "passenger-and-freight van" means the vehicle having at most 9 places for sitting (including the driver) which internal space can be used without constructive changes for transportation of both people, and loads.

The features provided below are the characteristic signs of design usually inherent to vehicles which join in this goods item:

(a) availability of constantly established seats with safety controls (for example, with safety belts or with attachment points and devices for installation of safety belts) for each person or availability of permanent attachment points and devices for installation of seats and safety controls in back zone behind zone for the driver and front passengers; such seats can be fixed, developing, removable on anchor fixture or portable;

(b) availability of windows in two side panels of the rear end;

(c) availability of the sliding, outward opening or rising up door or doors, with windows, on side panels or behind;

(d) lack of the permanent panel or partition between zone for the driver and front passengers and back zone which can be used for transportation of both people, and loads;

(e) availability of external signs of comfort and internal finishing, and also devices in all inside of the vehicle in which passenger cabs of vehicles differ (for example, floor covering, ventilation, interior lighting, ashtrays).

Classification of cars in goods item 8704 "Motor vehicles for carriage of goods" is determined by some signs which are specified that these vehicles are generally intended for transportation of goods, but not for transportation of people (goods item 8703). These signs are applicable in case of classification of motor vehicles which usually have the fully loaded mass of the vehicle less than 5 tons and which have either the separate closed back zone, or the open back platform which is usually used for carriage of goods, but can have rear seats like bench which have no safety belts, attachment points or conveniences to passengers and which develop along boards to allow to use completely back platform for cargo transportation. This category usually joins the vehicles known as "multi-purpose" vehicles (for example, vehicles like vans, some pickup cars servicing sports vehicles). The features provided below are the characteristic signs of design usually inherent to vehicles which join in this goods item:

(a) availability of seats like the benches which do not have safety controls (for example, safety belts or attachment points and devices for installation of safety belts) or conveniences to passengers in back zone behind zone for the driver and front passengers. Such seats usually happen folding or portable to allow to use completely floor of back zone (vehicles like vans) or separate platform (vehicles like the pickup) for cargo transportation;

(b) availability of separate cabin for the driver and passengers and separate open platform with side boards and the lowered back header (vehicles like the pickup);

c) lack of windows in two side panels of the rear end; availability of the sliding, outward opening or rising up door or doors; without windows on side panels or behind for loading or unloading of goods (vehicles like the van);

(d) availability of the permanent panel or barrier between zone to the driver and front passengers and back zone;

(e) lack of external signs of comfort and internal finishing, and also devices in zone of cargo section in which passenger cabs of vehicles differ (for example, floor covering, ventilation, interior lighting, ashtrays).

Classification of the passenger-and-freight vans having all-metal body and the single internal space of salon divided from ceiling to floor by the partition inseparably linked with vehicle body into two zones: the zone for the driver and front passengers and zone for loads, is determined proceeding from results of application of the following formula which left part represents load-carrying capacity of the department intended for transportation of goods, and the right part represents load-carrying capacity of passenger department:
