COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 2245/94 of 22 August 1994 modifying Regulation (EEC) No 1968/93 opening and providing for the administration of tariff quotas in respect of certain EEC steel products originating in the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic imported into the Community (1 June 1993 to 31 December 1995)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular the first paragraph of Article 113 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas a tariff quota system was established by Decisions No 1/93(C) (1) and No 1/93(S) (2) of the EC-Czech Republic and Slovak Republic Joint Committee referred to in Article 37 of the Interim Agreement on trade and trade-related matters between the European Economic Community and the European Coal and Steel Community, of the one part, and the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic, of the other part, ('the Interim Agreement'), signed in Brussels on 16 December 1991 (3);

Whereas, following the dissolution of the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic on 31 December 1992, the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic assumed all the obligations deriving from the Interim Agreement; whereas this has resulted in the creation of an EC-Czech Republic Joint Committee and an EC-Slovak Republic Joint Committee;

Whereas the operation of the abovementioned tariff quota system has undergone thorough examination by the parties with the result that certain amendments were made by Decision No 1/94 of the EC-Czech Republic Joint Committee and Decision No 1/94 of the EC-Slovak Republic Joint Committee;

Whereas arrangements for the implementation of the abovementioned tariff quota system were laid down by Regulation (EEC) No 1968/93 (4); whereas it is necessary to modify that Regulation in order to take account of the results of that examination;

Whereas following the exclusion of certain measures under the common commercial policy from the transitional arrangements in favour of the new German Bundeslaender by Regulation (EC) No 665/94 (5) it is appropriate to suspend tariffs in respect of certain products covered by Decisions No 1/93(C) and No 1/93(S) for imports to the territory of the new Bundeslaender of the German Federal Republic for the year 1994,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
