2.   The Association Council will make recommendations for achieving the objective described in paragraph 1.

4.

(a)

For the purposes of applying the provisions of paragraph l(c), the Parties recognize that during the first five years after the entry into force of this Agreement, any State aid granted by Tunisia shall be assessed taking into account the fact that Tunisia shall be regarded as an area identical to those areas of the Community described in Article 92(3)(a) of the Treaty establishing the European Community.

During the same period of time, Tunisia may exceptionally, as regards ECSC steel products, grant State aid for restructuring purposes provided that:

it leads to the viability of the recipient firms under normal market conditions at the end of the restructuring period,

the amount and intensity of such aid are strictly limited to what is absolutely necessary in order to restore such viability and are progressively reduced,

Upon request by one Party, the other Party shall provide information on particular individual cases of official aid.

5.   With regard to products referred to in Chapter II of Title II:

the provisions of paragraph l(c) do not apply,

any practices contrary to paragraph 1(a) shall be assessed according to the criteria established by the Community on the basis of Articles 42 and 43 of the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular those established in Council Regulation No 26/62.

is not adequately dealt with under the implementing rules referred to in paragraph 3, or

in the absence of such rules, and if such practice causes or threatens to cause serious prejudice to the interest of the other Party or material injury to its domestic industry, including its services industry,

it may take appropriate measures after consultation within the Association Committee or after 30 working days following referral to that Committee.

In the case of practices incompatible with paragraph l(c) of this Article, such appropriate measures may, where the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade applies thereto, only be adopted in accordance with the procedures and under the conditions laid down by the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and any other relevant instrument negotiated under its auspices which is applicable between the Parties.

PROTOCOL No 1

on the arrangements applying to imports into the Community of agricultural products originating in Tunisia

Article 1

1.   The products listed in the Annex, originating in Tunisia, shall be admitted for import into the Community in accordance with the conditions set out below and in the Annex.

2.   Import duties shall be either eliminated or reduced by the percentage indicated in respect of each product in column (a).

Where the Common Customs Tariff provides for the application of ad valorem custums duties and a specific customs duty in respect of certain products, the rates of reduction shown in column (a) and in column (c), as referred to in paragraph 3, shall apply only to the ad valorem customs duty.

3.   The customs duties shall be eliminated in respect of certain products within the limits of the tariff quotas shown against them in column (b).

The Common Customs Tariff duties in respect of the quantities imported in excess of the quotas shall be reduced by the percentage indicated in column (c).

4.   The reference quantities fixed in respect of certain other products exempt from customs duties are shown in column (d).

Where imports of a product exceed the reference quantities, the Community may, having regard to an annual review of trade flows which is shall carry out, make the product concerned subject to a Community tariff quota the volume of which shall be equal to the reference quantity. In such a case, for quantities imported in excess of the quota, the common customs tariff duty shall, according to the product concerned, be applied in full or reduced, as indicated in column (c).

5.   For some of the products referred to in paragraphs 3 and 4 and indicated in column (e), the quotas or reference quantities shall be increased from 1 January 1997 to 1 January 2000 on the basis of four equal instalments each corresponding to 3 % of these amounts.

6.   For some of the products other than those referred to in paragraphs 3 and 4 and indicated in column (e), the Community may fix a reference quantity as provided for in paragraph 4 if, in the light of the annual review of trade which it shall carry out, it establishes that the volume of imports may cause difficulties on the Community market. If, subsequently, the product is subject to a tariff quota under the conditions set out in paragraph 4, the Common Customs Tariff duty shall be applied in full or reduced, depending on the product concerned, by the percentage shown in column (c) in respect of the quantities imported in excess of the quota.

Article 2

Article 1 shall apply in respect of wines of fresh grapes of heading 2204 of the Combined Nomenclature, originating in Tunisia and entitled to a designation of origin, where such wines are put up in containers holding two litres or less and have an actual alcoholic strength of 15 % volume or less.

In accordance with Tunisian law, these wines shall have the following designations: Côteaux de Teboura, Côteaux d'Utique, Sidi Salem, Kelibia, Thibar, Mornag, Grand cru Mornag.

Article 3

1.   Each marketing year from 1 January 1996 to 31 December 1999, within the limits of a quantity of 46 000 tonnes per year, a customs duty of ECU 7,81/100 kg shall be levied on imports into the Community of untreated olive oil of subheadings 1509 10 10 and 1509 10 90 of the Combined Nomenclature wholly obtained in Tunisia and transported directly from Tunisia to the Community.

2.   Where imports of olive oil under the above arrangements threaten to disturb the balance of the European Union market, in particular as a result of the latter's obligations relating to this product in the WTO framework, the European Community may take the appropriate measures to remedy this situation.

3.   The parties shall reassess the situation during the second half of 1999 with a view to determining the arrangements for the period from 1 January 2000.
