Are there any guidelines available for the Rare Earth Metals and Rare Earth Alloys as it is not easy to link the existing guidelines to these category of metals.

Dear Sir/Madame,

Thank you for your question. The PCRs are classified in accordance with the UN CPC system. The format of the product as sold would determine where in the classification the product would be most appropriate. UN CPC 3429 includes "Compounds of rare earth metals, of yttrium or of
scandium", while UN CPC 16xxx includes Ores and minerals. Please see their website for furhter information.

Best regards,

Kristian Jelse, Secretariat
