2 . BASIC PRODUCTS QUALIFYING FOR A REFUND AND FOR WHICH INWARD PROCESSING ARRANGEMENTS ARE NOT PROHIBITED SHALL BE REGARDED AS NOT BEING IN BALANCE WITHIN THE MEANING OF PARAGRAPH 1 , IF IT IS FOUND THAT RE-EXPORTS OF THOSE PRODUCTS IN THE FORM OF PROCESSED PRODUCTS OR GOODS , EFFECTED UNDER INWARD PROCESSING OPERATIONS DURING A PERIOD OF ONE YEAR FROM 1 JULY TO 30 JUNE , STAND IN A PROPORTION OF NOT LESS THAN 10 % OF THE TOTAL EXPORTS OF THE GOODS OR PROCESSED PRODUCTS IN QUESTION .

THE SAME SHALL APPLY IF THE ABOVE-MENTIONED PROPORTION IS BETWEEN 4 % AND 10 % AND IF , IN VIEW OF THE ECONOMIC SITUATION , SUCH PROPORTION SUBSTANTIALLY HINDERS THE EXPORTATION OF COMMUNITY BASIC PRODUCTS WHICH ARE DIFFICULT TO DISPOSE OF .

OTHER PROCESSED PRODUCTS AND GOODS MAY BE INCLUDED IN THE LIST REFERRED TO IN PARAGRAPH 3 IN ORDER TO PREVENT ECONOMIC DISTURBANCES .

3 . THE PROCESSED PRODUCTS OR GOODS DERIVED FROM THE PROCESSING OR MANUFACTURE OF BASIC PRODUCTS COVERED BY PARAGRAPH 1 ARE LISTED IN ANNEX I .

IN FIXING THE DATE FROM WHICH ANY SUCH AMENDMENTS ARE TO TAKE EFFECT , THE NEED TO GIVE PROCESSORS OF BASIC PRODUCTS SOME SECURITY AS REGARDS THE TERMS OF SUPPLY SHALL BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT .

THE RULES LAID DOWN IN PARAGRAPH 2 SHALL NOT APPLY IN EXCEPTIONAL CASES WHERE THEY WOULD RESULT IN PRODUCTS OR GOODS MANUFACTURED FROM BASIC PRODUCTS WHICH CAN BE DISPOSED OF WITHOUT DIFFICULTY QUALIFYING FOR PRE-FINANCING .

4 . THE REFUND REFERRED TO IN PARAGRAPH 1 SHALL BE :

WHERE THE REFUND IS FIXED IN ADVANCE , THE DAY ON WHICH THOSE PRODUCTS ARE BROUGHT UNDER CUSTOMS CONTROL SHALL BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION FOR THE DETERMINATION OF ANY ADJUSTMENTS TO BE MADE TO THE RATE APPLICABLE .

WHERE THE REFUND VARIES ACCORDING TO USE OR DESTINATION , ONLY THAT PART OF THE REFUND WHICH CORRESPONDS TO THE LOWEST RATE SHALL BE PAID IN ACCORDANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 1 .

5 . THE CUSTOMS CONTROL PROCEDURE SHALL INCLUDE THE LODGING OF A DEPOSIT GUARANTEEING THAT AN AMOUNT NOT LESS THAN THE REFUND PAID WILL BE REIMBURSED IF THE PROCESSED PRODUCTS OR GOODS ARE NOT EXPORTED FROM COMMUNITY TERRITORY WITHIN THE SET TIME LIMIT . AS REGARDS OTHER CONTROL PROCEDURES AND THE RATE OF YIELD , PRODUCTS TO BE PROCESSED OR MANUFACTURED SHALL BE SUBJECT TO THE SAME RULES AS APPLY IN RESPECT OF INWARD PROCESSING TO PRODUCTS OF THE SAME NATURE FROM THIRD COUNTRIES .

6 . THE COMPETENT AUTHORITIES OF THE MEMBER STATES MAY REFUSE TO APPLY THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 2 ( 1 ) IF THE CHARACTER OF THE APPLICANT IS NOT SUCH AS TO GUARANTEE THAT THE WHOLE TRANSACTION WILL BE EFFECTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REGULATIONS OR RULES IN FORCE .

THE OBLIGATION TO EXPORT THOSE PRODUCTS OR GOODS FROM THE COMMUNITY WITHIN A SET TIME LIMIT SHALL , EXCEPT IN CASE OF FORCE MAJEURE , BE SECURED BY THE LODGING OF A DEPOSIT GUARANTEEING THE REIMBURSEMENT OF AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE REFUND PAID , PLUS A SPECIFIED ADDITIONAL AMOUNT , IF EXPORTATION DOES NOT TAKE PLACE WITHIN THAT PERIOD .

IN THE LATTER CASE , THE LEVY SHALL NOT BE CHARGED IF THE PRODUCTS OR GOODS IN QUESTION REMAIN IN THE COMMUNITY .

2 . THE LIST REFERRED TO IN PARAGRAPH 1 SHALL INCLUDE ONLY SUCH PRODUCTS AS :

( A ) ARE OF A KIND THAT CAN BE STORED , AND

( B ) ( I ) ARE HARVESTED OR PRODUCED IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY CANNOT BE SOLD ON THE WORLD MARKET AT THE TIME WHEN THEY ARE HARVESTED OR PRODUCED , OR

( II ) ARE NORMALLY PURCHASED ON THE WORLD MARKET DURING THE INTERVAL BETWEEN TWO HARVESTS OR PRODUCTION SEASONS .
