Proposal for a

COUNCIL REGULATION

on trade in certain steel products between the European Community and the Republic of Kazakhstan

(presented by the Commission)

EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM

CONTEXT OF THE PROPOSAL |

110 | Grounds for and objectives of the proposal The Community's Partnership and Cooperation Agreement with Kazakhstan provides that trade in certain steel products must be the subject of an Agreement between the Parties. |

120 | General context The current autonomous measures will expire on 31 December 2007. Both Parties seem willing to conclude a new Agreement for 2008 and subsequent years. However, the new Agreement will not be in force by 1 January 2008. Therefore, pending its entry into force, autonomous measures setting quotas as from 1 January 2008 have to be taken. |

130 | Existing provisions in the area of the proposal Council Regulation (EC) No 1870/2006 (OJ L 360, 19.12.2006, p. 1). |

141 | Consistency with the other policies and objectives of the Union Not applicable. |

CONSULTATION OF INTERESTED PARTIES AND IMPACT ASSESSMENT |

Consultation of interested parties |

219 | The parties were consulted on a related proposal. This Regulation actually continues a system that is in place since several years. |

Collection and use of expertise |

229 | There was no need for external expertise. |

230 | Impact assessment not applicable |

LEGAL ELEMENTS OF THE PROPOSAL |

305 | Summary of the proposed action This Council Regulation sets quantitative limits as from 1 January and will last until the new agreement will enter into force. |

310 | Legal basis Article 133 of the Treaty establishing the EC. |

329 | Subsidiarity principle The proposal falls under the exclusive competence of the Community. The subsidiarity principle therefore does not apply. |

Proportionality principle |

331 | The proposal complies with the proportionality principle for the following reason(s). Import of steel products covered by this Council Regulation are subject to a quota and to an import authorization. EU importers apply for the necessary import authorization to the Member States competent authorities. The competent authority checks the conformity of the documentation submitted by the applicant and verifies electronically with a central data base that the required quantities are available and then releases the import authorization. The implementing mechanism is designed to minimize the number of intervening parties. The system is thus rather light, with very limited levels involved and no involvement from the Commission services. |

332 | International agreements with the same objective and the same operational rules have been concluded since several years. The absence of request for modifications by all the parties involved may be interpreted as confirming that operators and national administrations see the system as reasonably light. |

Choice of instruments |

341 | Proposed instruments: regulation. |

342 | Other means would not be adequate for the following reason(s). It is the only way to set quantitative limits. |

BUDGETARY IMPLICATION |

409 | The proposal has no implication for the Community budget. |

Proposal for a

COUNCIL REGULATION

on trade in certain steel products between the European Community and the Republic of Kazakhstan

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 133 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas:

(1) Article 17(1) of the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement between the European Communities and their Member States, and the Republic of Kazakhstan[1] provides that trade in certain steel products are to be subject to a specific Agreement on quantitative arrangements.

(2) The bilateral Agreement between the European Community and the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan on trade in certain steel products[2] concluded on 19 July 2005 has expired on 31 December 2006. In 2007 autonomous measures established by Council Regulation (EC) 1870/2006[3] have governed the trade in certain steel products between the European Community and Kazakhstan.

(3) Both Parties intend to conclude a new Agreement for 2008 and subsequent years.

(4) Pending the signature and entry into force of the new Agreement, quantitative limits for the year 2008 should be established.

(5) Given that the conditions that led to the fixing of the quantitative limits for 2007 remain largely in place, it is appropriate to set the quantitative limits for 2008 at the same level as that of 2007.

(6) It is necessary to provide the means to administer this regime within the Community in such a way as to facilitate the implementation of the new Agreement by envisaging as much as possible similar provisions.

(7) It is necessary to ensure that the origin of the products in question is checked and appropriate methods of administrative cooperation are set up to this end.

(8) Products placed in a free zone or imported under the arrangements governing customs warehouses, temporary importation or inward processing (suspension system) should not be counted against the limits established for the products in question.

(9) The effective application of this Regulation calls for the introduction of a requirement for a Community import licence for the entry into free circulation in the Community of the products in question.

(10) In order to ensure that these quantitative limits are not exceeded, it is necessary to establish a management procedure whereby the competent authorities of the Member States do not issue import licences before obtaining confirmation from the Commission that appropriate amounts remain available within the quantitative limit in question,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1. This Regulation shall apply from 1 January 2008 to 31 December 2008 to imports into the Community of steel products listed in Annex I originating in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

2. The steel products shall be classified in product groups as set out in Annex I.

3. The classification of products listed in Annex I shall be based on the Combined Nomenclature (CN) established by Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87[4].

4. The origin of the products referred to in paragraph 1 shall be determined in accordance with the rules in force in the Community.

Article 2

1. The importation into the Community of the steel products listed in Annex I originating in the Republic of Kazakhstan shall be subject to the quantitative limits laid down in Annex V. The release for free circulation in the Community of the products set out in Annex I originating in the Republic of Kazakhstan shall be subject to the presentation of a certificate of origin, set out in Annex II, and of an import licence issued by the Member States' authorities in accordance with the provisions of Article 4.

2. In order to ensure that quantities for which import licences are issued do not exceed at any moment the total quantitative limits for each product group, the competent authorities listed in Annex IV shall issue import licences only upon confirmation by the Commission that there are still quantities available within the quantitative limits for the relevant product group of steel products in respect of the supplier country, for which an importer or importers have submitted applications to the said authorities.

3. The authorised imports shall be counted against the relevant quantitative limit set out in Annex V. Shipment of products shall be considered as having taken place on the date on which they were loaded onto the exporting means of transport.

Article 3

1. The quantitative limits referred to in Annex V shall not apply to products placed in a free zone or free warehouse or imported under the arrangements governing customs warehouses, temporary importation or inward processing (suspension system).

2. Where the products referred to in paragraph 1 are subsequently released for free circulation, either in the unaltered state or after working or processing, Article 2 (2) shall apply and the products so released shall be counted against the relevant quantitative limit set out in Annex V.

Article 4

1. For the purpose of applying Article 2 (2), before issuing import licences, the competent authorities of the Member States listed in Annex IV shall notify the Commission of the amounts of the requests for import licences, supported by original export licences, which they have received. By return, the Commission shall notify whether the requested amount(s) of quantities are available for importation in the chronological order in which the notifications of the Member States are received ('first come, first served basis').

2. The requests included in the notifications to the Commission shall be valid if they establish clearly in each case the exporting country, the product code concerned, the amounts to be imported, the number of the export licence, the quota year and the Member State in which the products are intended to be put into free circulation.

3. As far as possible, the Commission shall confirm to the authorities the full amount indicated in the requests notified for each group of products.

4. The competent authorities shall notify the Commission immediately after being informed of any quantity that is not used during the duration of validity of the import licence. Such unused quantities shall automatically be transferred into the remaining quantities of the total Community quantitative limit for each product group.

5. The notifications referred to in paragraphs 1 to 4 shall be communicated electronically within the integrated network set up for this purpose, unless for imperative technical reasons it is necessary to use other means of communication temporarily.

6. The import licences or equivalent documents shall be issued in accordance with Articles 12 to 16.

7. The competent authorities of the Member States shall notify the Commission of any cancellation of import licences or equivalent documents already issued in cases where the corresponding export licences have been withdrawn or cancelled by the competent authorities of the Republic of Kazakhstan. However, if the Commission or the competent authorities of a Member State have been informed by the competent authorities of the Republic of Kazakhstan of the withdrawal or cancellation of an export licence after the related products have been imported into the Community, the quantities in question shall be set off against the relevant quantitative limit set out in Annex V.

Article 5

1. Where the Commission has indications that products listed in Annex I originating in the Republic of Kazakhstan have been transhipped, rerouted or otherwise imported into the Community through circumvention of the quantitative limits referred to in Article 2 and that there is a need for the necessary adjustments to be made, it shall request that consultations be opened so that agreement may be reached on the necessary adjustment of the corresponding quantitative limits to be made.

2. Pending the outcome of the consultations referred to in paragraph 1, the Commission may ask the Republic of Kazakhstan to take the necessary precautionary steps to ensure that adjustments to the quantitative limits agreed following such consultations may be carried out.

3. Should the Community and the Republic of Kazakhstan fail to arrive at a satisfactory solution and should the Commission note that there is clear evidence of circumvention, the Commission shall deduct from the quantitative limits an equivalent volume of products originating in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Article 6

1. An export licence (to be issued by the competent authorities of the Republic of Kazakhstan) shall be required in respect of any consignment of steel products subject to the quantitative limits laid down in Annex V up to the level of the said limits.

2. The original of the export licence shall be presented by the importer for the purposes of the issue of the import licence referred to in Article 12.

Article 7

1. The export licence for quantitative limits shall conform to the specimen set out in Annex II and shall certify, inter alia , that the quantity of goods in question has been set off against the quantitative limit established for the product group concerned.

If the Commission finds that the total quantities covered by export licences issued by the Republic of Kazakhstan for a particular product group exceed the quantitative limit established for that product group, the competent licence authorities in the Member States shall be informed immediately in order to suspend the further issue of import licences. In this event, consultations shall be initiated forthwith by the Commission.

However, an embossing press combined with letters or figures obtained by means of perforation, or printing on the licence may be substituted for the issuing authority's stamp. The issuing authorities shall use any tamper-proof method to record the quantity allocated in such a way as to make it impossible to insert figures or references.

9. The reverse of copy No 1 and copy No 2 shall bear a box in which quantities may be entered, either by the customs authorities when import formalities are completed, or by the competent administrative authorities when an extract is issued. If the space set aside for debits on a licence or extract thereof is insufficient, the competent authorities may attach one or more extension pages bearing boxes matching those on the reverse of copy No 1 and copy No 2 of the licence or extract. The debiting authorities shall place their stamp in such a way that one half is on the licence or extract thereof and the other half is on the extension page. If there is more than one extension page, a further stamp shall be placed in like manner across each page and the preceding page.

10. Import licences and extracts issued, and entries and endorsements made, by the authorities of one Member State shall have the same legal effect in each of the other Member States as documents issued, and entries and endorsements made, by the authorities of such Member States.

11. The competent authorities of the Member States concerned may, where indispensable, require the contents of licences or extracts to be translated into the official language or one or the official languages of that Member State.

Article 17

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

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