REGULATION (EU) 2018/196 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

of 7 February 2018

on additional customs duties on imports of certain products originating in the United States of America

(codification)



Article 1

The tariff concessions and related obligations under GATT 1994 of the Union shall be suspended in respect of products originating in the United States listed in Annex I to this Regulation.

▼M1

Article 2

An ad valorem duty of 0,3 % additional to the customs duty applicable under Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 ( 1 ) shall be imposed on the products originating in the United States of America listed in Annex I to this Regulation.

▼B

Article 3

1.  The Commission shall adjust the level of suspension annually to the level of nullification or impairment caused by the United States' Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act (‘CDSOA’) to the Union at that time. The Commission shall amend the rate of the additional import duty or the list in Annex I under the following conditions:

(a) the level of nullification or impairment shall be equal to 72 % of the amount of disbursements under the CDSOA relating to anti-dumping and countervailing duties paid on imports from the Union for the most recent year for which data are available at that time, as published by the United States' authorities;

(b) the amendment shall be such that the effect of the additional import duty on imports of the selected products originating in the United States represents, over one year, a value of trade that does not exceed the level of nullification or impairment;

(c) except in circumstances set out in point (e), when the level of suspension increases, the Commission shall add products to the list in Annex I; those products shall be selected from the list in Annex II following the order of that list;

(d) except in circumstances set out in point (e), when the level of suspension decreases, products shall be withdrawn from the list in Annex I; the Commission shall remove, first, products that were in the list in Annex II on 1 May 2005 and were added to the list in Annex I at a later stage; the Commission shall then remove products that were in the list in Annex I on 1 May 2005 following the order of that list;

(e) the Commission shall amend the rate of the additional import duty when the level of suspension cannot be adjusted to the level of nullification or impairment by adding or removing products from the list in Annex I.

2.  When products are added to the list in Annex I, the Commission shall, at the same time, amend the list in Annex II by removing those products from that list. The order of the products remaining in the list in Annex II shall not be modified.

3.  The Commission shall be empowered to adopt delegated acts in accordance with Article 4 to make the adjustments and amendments referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 of this Article.

Where information on the amount of disbursements made by the United States is made available late in the year, in such a way that it is not possible to meet WTO and statutory deadlines by using the procedure provided for in Article 4, and where, in the case of adjustments and amendments to the Annexes, imperative grounds of urgency so require, the procedure provided for in Article 5 shall apply to delegated acts adopted pursuant to the first subparagraph.

Article 4

1.  The power to adopt delegated acts is conferred on the Commission subject to the conditions laid down in this Article.

2.  The power to adopt delegated acts referred to in Article 3(3) shall be conferred on the Commission for a period of five years from 20 February 2014. The Commission shall draw up a report in respect of the delegation of power not later than nine months before the end of the five-year period. The delegation of power shall be tacitly extended for periods of an identical duration, unless the European Parliament or the Council opposes such extension not later than three months before the end of each period.

3.  The delegation of power referred to in Article 3(3) may be revoked at any time by the European Parliament or by the Council. A decision to revoke shall put an end to the delegation of power specified in that decision. It shall take effect the day following the publication of the decision in the Official Journal of the European Union or at a later date specified therein. It shall not affect the validity of any delegated acts already in force.

4.  Before adopting a delegated act, the Commission shall consult experts designated by each Member State in accordance with the principles laid down in the Interinstitutional Agreement of 13 April 2016 on Better Law-Making.

5.  As soon as it adopts a delegated act, the Commission shall notify it simultaneously to the European Parliament and to the Council.

6.  A delegated act adopted pursuant to Article 3(3) shall enter into force only if no objection has been expressed either by the European Parliament or the Council within a period of two months of notification of that act to the European Parliament and the Council or if, before the expiry of that period, the European Parliament and the Council have both informed the Commission that they will not object. That period shall be extended by two months at the initiative of the European Parliament or of the Council.

Article 5

1.  Delegated acts adopted under this Article shall enter into force without delay and shall apply as long as no objection is expressed in accordance with paragraph 2. The notification of a delegated act to the European Parliament and to the Council shall state the reasons for the use of the urgency procedure.

2.  Either the European Parliament or the Council may object to a delegated act in accordance with the procedure referred to in Article 4(6). In such a case, the Commission shall repeal the act without delay following the notification of the decision to object by the European Parliament or by the Council.

Article 6

The origin of any product to which this Regulation applies shall be determined in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 952/2013.

Article 7

1.  Products listed in Annex I for which an import licence with an exemption from, or a reduction of, duty was issued before 30 April 2005 shall not be subject to the additional import duty.

2.  Products listed in Annex I which are admitted free of import duties pursuant to Council Regulation (EC) No 1186/2009 ( 2 ) shall not be subject to the additional import duty.

Article 8

Regulation (EC) No 673/2005 is repealed.

References to the repealed Regulation shall be construed as references to this Regulation and shall be read in accordance with the correlation table in Annex IV.

Article 9
