Article 2

Imports of hard coal originating in third countries into the Member States shall be subject to Community surveillance in order that the Commission may be able regularly and better to judge developments in all Community coal markets, with particular regard to imports of hard coal originating in third countries.

Article 3

The Commission shall ensure that the information supplied pursuant to Article 3 remains confidential and is handled by officials who are bound by professional secrecy.

This provision shall not, however, prevent the Commission from publishing general or summary information, but at the earliest on the expiry of 80 days following the end of each quarter, in a form which, in respect of statistical secrecy, meets the following requirements:

 no financial data shall be published if less than four companies undertake more than 75 % of the imports from the country of origin in each quarter,
