Proposal for a Council Decision on the conclusion of an agreement between the European Community and Canada on trade in wines and spirit drinks /* COM/2003/0377 final - ACC 2003/0140 */


Proposal for a COUNCIL DECISION on the conclusion of an agreement between the European Community and Canada on trade in wines and spirit drinks

(presented by the Commission)

EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM

1. This agreement between Canada and the European Community is the result of bilateral negotiations which took place from 7 November 2001 to 24 April 2003 on the basis of a negotiating mandate adopted by the Council on 1 August 2001 (Doc. 11170/01). The agreement comprises arrangements for the reciprocal trade in wines and spirit drinks with a view to creating favourable conditions for its harmonious development.

2. The agreement specifies oenological practices which may be used by producers of wine exported to the other Party, as well as a procedure for accepting new oenological practices. The Community's simplified system of certification will be applied to imported wines originating in Canada. Canada will not introduce import certification for Community wines and will simplify the extent of such testing requirements as are currently applied by provinces, within a year of entry into force. Production standards are agreed for wine made from grapes frozen on the vine. Concerning production standards for spirit drinks, the agreement provides that Canada will adhere to Community standards for its exports of whisky to the Community.

3. Procedures whereby geographical indications relating to wines and spirit drinks of either Party may be protected in the territory of the other Party are agreed. The current "generic" status in Canada of 21 wine names will be ended by the following dates: 31 December 2013 for Chablis, Champagne, Port and Porto, and Sherry; 31 December 2008 for Bourgogne and Burgundy, Rhin and Rhine, and Sauterne and Sauternes; the date of entry into force of the agreement for Bordeaux, Chianti, Claret, Madeira, Malaga, Marsala, Medoc and Médoc, and Mosel and Moselle. The spirit designations Grappa, Ouzo, Jägertee, Korn, Kornbrand, and Pacharán, will be protected in Canada for product of the Community, while the designation Rye Whisky will be protected for product of Canada.

4. The agreement will be managed by means of a Joint Committee and procedures are laid down for amending annexes, arranging consultations, dealing with disputes including reference to arbitration, and terminating the agreement.

5. Concerning the Canadian provincial alcohol monopolies, the Liquor Boards, the agreement between the EC and Canada of 28 February 1989 is substantially enhanced in order to ensure improved commercial treatment of suppliers of Community product in relation to pricing, opportunity to compete for purchases, listing decisions, and conditions of retail sale. The Liquor Boards may continue to provide for exclusive outlets for wines and spirits produced in Canada and for wines bottled in Québec under similar conditions that have applied since 1989.

6. It has not been possible to reach agreement at this stage on wine labelling (matters other than the use of geographical indications) and the use of the term "Highland Whisky". The Parties are committed to further bilateral negotiations with a view to reaching agreement.

7. The Commission therefore proposes that the Council adopt the proposal for a decision on the conclusion of this agreement set out in the Annex.

8. Financial impact: there is no financial impact arising from this agreement.

2. Without prejudice to Article 35, new oenological practices, processes or modifications, used for the production of wine shall meet the following requirements:

Article E

Article 4 (Wine) is replaced by the following Article:

"Article 4 Commercial treatment

Canadian competent authorities shall, in exercising their responsibilities for the purchase, distribution and retail sale of product of the Community, adhere to the provisions of GATT Article XVII concerning state trading enterprises, in particular to make any such decisions solely in accordance with commercial considerations and shall afford the enterprises of the Community adequate opportunity, in accordance with customary business practice, to compete for participation in such purchases."

FINAL ACT

The Plenipotentiaries

of the EUROPEAN COMMUNITY,

and

of CANADA,

meeting at [...] on [...] for the signature of the agreement between the European Community and Canada on trade in wines and spirit drinks,

have adopted the Joint Declarations mentioned below and attached to this Final Act:

-Joint Declaration on rules of origin,

-Joint Declaration on WTO negotiations,

-Joint Declaration on labelling,

-Joint Declaration on outlets,

-Joint Declaration on "Highland Whisky";

and have taken note of the Declarations mentioned below and attached to this Final Act:

-Declaration by the Community on geographical indications,

-Declaration by Canada on geographical indications.

Done at

For the European Community For the government of Canada

JOINT DECLARATION on rules of origin

The Contracting Parties agree to consult on the issue of rules of origin related to wine following the conclusion of negotiations in the WTO Harmonization Work Programme for non-preferential rules of origin with a view to reflecting the outcome of those negotiations in this agreement.

JOINT DECLARATION on WTO negotiations

The Contracting Parties hereby declare the provisions of this agreement to be without prejudice to their respective positions in the ongoing negotiations within the WTO related to intellectual property and rules of origin.

JOINT DECLARATION on labelling

The Contracting Parties agree that provisions referring to terms regulated in Canada or in the Community shall only apply to the extent those terms are so regulated.

The Contracting Parties note the importance attached by each to their respective systems of label regulation and in particular by the Community to traditional expressions used to denote quality of certain wines and the need to protect these expressions in order to avoid misleading consumers. The Community recognizes that Canada has fundamental concerns about the nature, scope and applicability of this protection. The Contracting Parties agree to continue to discuss this issue bilaterally.

The Contracting Parties agree that where wines have been certified by a competent Canadian authority listed in Annex VI to meet the requirements of VQA rules in Canada, they shall be presumed to have met the requirements under Article 20 and Article C of Annex V.

JOINT DECLARATION on outlets

The Contracting Parties take note of the relative commercial significance of outlets available to product of the Community and product bottled in the Community compared with that of restricted outlets. If, as a result of the derogations contained in Annex VIII Article C, the relative commercial significance of the restricted outlets should substantially increase, the Parties shall examine whether any modifications to those derogations are necessary to retain the equilibrium of concessions under the 1989 agreement and this agreement.

JOINT DECLARATION on "Highland Whisky"

The Contracting Parties agree to enter into discussions concerning the term "Highland Whisky", with a view to reaching an agreement by 30 June 2005 concerning the use of the term, in line with any WTO rights and obligations, which does not mislead consumers as to the origin of the whisky, and which takes into account the usage of the term in Canada in recent years.

DECLARATION BY THE COMMUNITY on geographical indications

The Community declares that the names listed in Annex III(a) and Annex IV(a) to the agreement are geographical indications within the meaning of Article 22.1 of the TRIPS Agreement, are in use and protected in the Community.

DECLARATION BY CANADA on geographical indications

Canada declares that the names listed in Annex III(b) and Annex IV(b) to the agreement are geographical indications within the meaning of Article 22.1 of the TRIPS Agreement, are in use and protected in Canada.
