COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 1048/98 of 18 May 1998 amending Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff and autonomously according a temporary partial suspension from customs duties for certain gas turbines

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 28 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 of 23 July 1987 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff (1) established a nomenclature for goods known as the 'Combined Nomenclature`;

Whereas Council Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92 of 12 October 1992 establishing the Community Customs Code (2) sets out provisions on conditions under which certain goods are eligible on import for favourable tariff treatment by reason of their end-use;

Whereas the supply of certain gas turbines to the Community manufacturers of combined heat and power stations is currently to a large extent constituted by imports from outside the Community; whereas the use of such combined heat and power stations is beneficial for the environment; whereas a temporary partial autonomous exemption from customs duties should therefore be accorded for such turbines under the end-use arrangements for a limited period;

Whereas a subheading accompanied by end-use provisions should be created in the Combined Nomenclature for these products; whereas the Combined Nomenclature should be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1. Part Two of Annex I to Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 is hereby amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

2. The amendments to Combined Nomenclature subheadings provided for in this Regulation shall be applicable as Taric subheadings until their insertion into the Combined Nomenclature in accordance with Article 12 of Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 18 May 1998.

For the Council

The President
