COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1982/2004

of 18 November 2004

implementing Regulation (EC) No 638/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council on Community statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States and repealing Commission Regulations (EC) No 1901/2000 and (EEC) No 3590/92

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 638/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 31 March 2004 on Community statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States (1) and in particular Articles 3(4) and (5), 6(2), 8(2), 9, 10, 12 and 13(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States are based on the Regulation (EC) No 638/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council which reconsiders the statistical provisions with a view to improving transparency and facilitating comprehension and which is adapted to meet current data requirements. Particular implementation arrangements are assigned to the Commission in accordance with Article 14(2) of the said Regulation. Therefore it is necessary to adopt a new Commission Regulation which should refer in a restrictive manner to the assigned responsibility and specify the implementing provisions. Commission Regulations (EC) No 1901/2000 of 7 September 2000 laying down certain provisions for the implementation of Council Regulation (EEC) No 3330/91 on the statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States (2) and (EEC) No 3590/92 of 11 December 1992 concerning the statistical information media for statistics on trade between Member States (3) should therefore be repealed.

(2)

For methodological reasons a number of types of goods and movements should be exempted. It is necessary to draw up a comprehensive list of those goods to be excluded from the statistics to be sent to the Commission (Eurostat).

(3)

Goods are to be included in trade statistics at the time when they enter or leave the statistical territory of a country. However, special arrangements are needed when data collection takes account of fiscal and customs procedures.

(4)

A link between value added tax information and Intrastat declarations should be maintained in order to check the quality of the collected information. It is appropriate to determine the information to be transmitted by the national tax administration to the national authorities responsible for statistics.

(5)

Common definitions and concepts should apply to data collected within the Intrastat system in order to facilitate a harmonised application of the system.

(6)

With a view to transparency and equal treatment of the companies, harmonised and accurate provisions should be applied for the setting up of thresholds.

(7)

Appropriate provisions have to be determined for some specific goods and movements in order to ensure that the necessary information is collected in a harmonised way.

(8)

Common and appropriate timetables as well as provisions on adjustments and revisions have to be included in order to satisfy users’ needs for timely and comparable figures.

(9)

A regular assessment of the system is planned in order to improve the data quality and ensure the transparency of the functioning of the system.

(10)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on the statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

ANNEX III

Coding of the nature of transaction

A

B

1.

Transactions involving actual or intended transfer of ownership against compensation (financial or otherwise) (except the transactions listed under 2, 7 and 8) (1)  (2)  (3)

1.

Outright/purchase/sale (2)

2.

Supply for sale on approval or after trial, for consignment or with the intermediation of a commission agent

3.

Barter trade (compensation in kind)

4.

Purchases by private individuals

5.

Financial leasing (hire-purchase) (3)

2.

Return of goods after registration of the original transaction under code 1 (4); replacement of goods free of charge (4)

1.

Return of goods

2.

Replacement for returned goods

3.

Replacement (e.g. under warranty) for goods not being returned

3.

Transactions (not temporary) involving transfer of ownership but without compensation (financial or other)

1.

Goods delivered under aid programmes operated or financed partly or wholly by the European Community

2.

Other general government aid deliveries

3.

Other aid deliveries (individuals, non-governmental organisations)

4.

Others

4.

Operations with a view to processing under contract (5) (except those recorded under 7)

 

5.

Operations following processing under contract (5) (except those recorded under 7)

 

6.

Particular transactions coded for national purposes (6)

 

7.

Operations under joint defence projects or other joint intergovernmental production programs

 

8.

Supply of building materials and equipment for works that are part of a general construction or engineering contract (7)

 

9.

Other transactions

 


(1)  This item covers most dispatches and arrivals, i.e. transactions in respect of which:

ownership is transferred from resident to non-resident, and

payment or compensation in kind is or will be made.

It should be noted that this also applies to goods sent between related enterprises or from/to central distribution depots, even if no immediate payment is made.

(2)  Including spare parts and other replacements made against payment.

(3)  Including financial leasing: the lease instalments are calculated in such a way as to cover all or virtually all of the value of the goods. The risks and rewards of ownership are transferred to the lessee. At the end of the contract the lessee becomes the legal owner of the goods.

(4)  Return and replacement dispatches of goods originally recorded under items 3 to 9 of column A should be registered under the corresponding items.

(5)  Processing covers operations (transformation, construction, assembling, enhancement, renovation…) with the objective of producing a new or really improved item. This does not necessarily involve a change in the product classification. Processing activities on a processor’s own account are not covered by this item and should be registered under item 1 of column A.

Goods for or following processing have to be recorded as arrivals and dispatches.

However, a repair should not be recorded under this position. A repair entails the restoration of goods to their original function or condition. The objective of the operation is simply to maintain the goods in working order; this may involve some rebuilding or enhancements but does not change the nature of the goods in anyway.

Goods for and after repair are excluded from statistics relating to the trading of goods between Member States to be transmitted to the Commission (Eurostat) (see Annex I (h)).

(6)  Transactions recorded under this position could be: transactions not involving transfer of ownership e.g. repair, hire, loan, operational leasing and other temporary uses less than two years, except processing under contract (delivery or return). Transactions recorded with this code shall not be transmitted to the Commission (Eurostat).

(7)  The transactions recorded under item 8 of column A involve only goods which are not separately invoiced, but for which a single invoice covers the total value of the works. Where this is not the case, the transactions should be recorded under item 1.

ANNEX VI

Quality indicators

The information on the quality of the data provided by the Member States shall be based on a common set of quality indicators and the necessary descriptive metadata.

1.

Relevance of statistical concepts means that the data meet users’ needs.

2.

Accuracy is one of the main needs of users. It can be assessed by indicators made up as follows:

(a)

Thresholds

(i)

member States shall report the levels of current threshold.

(ii)

in order to monitor the levels at which thresholds have been set, Member States shall report:

the coverage rate (%), expressed in terms of value, of trade above the exemption threshold.

(iii)

in order to monitor the impact of the thresholds, Member States shall report:

the method of adjustment used to estimate trade below the thresholds,

the share (%) of estimated trade below the thresholds.

(b)

Non-response

In order to assess the level of non-response, Member States shall report:

the method of adjustment used to estimate missing trade,

the share (%) of values estimated for missing trade.

(c)

Statistical value

In order to assess the impact of calculating the statistical value, Member States shall report:

the methodology used to calculate the statistical value,

the quantitative impact of calculating the statistical value.

(d)

Revisions

In order to assess the impact of the revisions procedures, Member States shall report:

a description of the revision policy,

the change (%) of the total trade value between the first results and the last available results.

(e)

Confidentiality

In order to assess the impact of confidential trade, Member States shall report:

a description of confidentiality rules,

the share (%) of confidential trade expressed in value terms,

the number of product codes within the CN affected by confidentiality.

(f)

Other links to accuracy

Other indicators are useful for assessing the quality of data, so Member States shall include the following in the quality report:

description of control procedures,

monthly average number of lines in the declarations,

number of PSIs (Providers of Statistical Information),

% of electronic declarations,

% of values declared electronically.

3.

Timeliness shall be assessed by Eurostat by calculating the average time between the end of the reference month and transmission of the data to Eurostat, as follows:

annual average delay (+ X days) or advance (– Y days) in the transmission of aggregate results, in calendar days, with reference to the legal deadline.

annual average delay (+ X days) or advance (– Y days) in the transmission of detailed results, in calendar days, with reference to the legal deadline.

4.

Accessibility to users gives value to statistical data, which is increased if the data are readily available in formats required by users. Clarity of the data available depends on the assistance provided in using and interpreting the statistics and on the available comments and analysis of results.

Consequently, Member States shall include in the quality report the media used to disseminate external trade statistics and references to further information that can assist the users of the statistics (e.g. methodological information, previous or similar publications, etc.).

5.

Comparability aims at measuring the impact of differences in applied statistical concepts and definitions when statistics are compared between geographical areas, non-geographical domains, or reference periods.

The use of differing concepts and definitions in Member States may affect comparability in foreign trade statistics (comparability over space).

To evaluate the impact, Member States shall report mirror exercises conducted by them and the investigation of asymmetry carried out if the mirror effect becomes significant.

Comparability over time is another important aspect of quality. Member States shall report any changes to definitions, coverage or methods that will have an impact on continuity.

6.

Coherence is defined by how well sets of statistics can be used together. Apart from External Trade Statistics, information on external trade can be found in National Accounts, Business Statistics and Balance of Payments.

In this context, Member States shall report any information concerning the coherence of foreign trade statistics and statistics originating from other sources.

7.

Completeness refers to the fact that the themes for which statistics are available reflect the needs and the priorities expressed by users of the European Statistical System.
