COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) N° 4139/87

of 9 December 1987

determining the conditions under which certain petroleum products are eligible on import for a favourable tariff arrangement by reason of their end-use

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) N° 2658/87 of 23 July 1987 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and

on the Common Customs Tariff (1), and in particular Article 11 thereof,

Whereas Council Regulation (EEC) N° 950/68 of 28 June 1968, on the Common Customs Tariff (2), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) N° 3529/87 (3), established the Common Customs Tariff on the basis of the nomenclature of the Convention of 15 December 1950 concerning the nomenclature to be used for the classification of goods in customs tariffs;

Whereas, on the basis of Council Regulation (EEC) N° 97/69 of 16 January 1969, on measures to be taken for the uniform application of the nomenclature of the Common Customs Tariff (4), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2055/84 (5), Commission Regulation (EEC) N° 1775/77 (6), determined the conditions under which certain petroleum products are eligible on import for a favourable tariff arrangement by reason of their end-use;

Whereas Regulation (EEC) N° 2658/87 has repealed and replaced, on the one hand, Regulation (EEC) N° 950/68 in adopting the new tariff and statistical nomenclature (combined nomenclature) based on the International Convention on the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System and, on the other hand, Regulation (EEC) N° 97/69; whereas it is consequently appropriate, for reasons of clarity, to replace Regulation (EEC) N° 1775/77 by a new regulation taking over the new nomenclature as well as the new legal base;

Whereas Regulation (EEC) N° 2658/87 lays down that, in respect of the products listed in the Annex to this Regulation:

- there shall be exemption from duty where such products are intended to be used otherwise than as power or heating fuels (subheadings 2707 10 90, 2707 20 90, 2707 30 90, 2707 50 91, 2707 50 99, 2711 12 19,

2901 10 90, 2902 20 90, 2902 30 90, 2902 44 90 of the combined nomenclature, or for the manufacture of products of heading N° 2803 (subheadings 2707 99 91 and 2713 90 10 of the combined nomenclature),

- duties shall be reduced on lubricating oils and other products intended to be mixed in accordance with the terms of Additional Note 6 to Chapter 27 (subheading 2710 00 95 of the combined nomenclature),

- duties shall be suspended on products intended to undergo a specific process or chemical transformation, such operations being defined in Additional Note 4 to Chapter 27 or in the Explanatory Notes to the combined nomenclature relating to Additional Notes 4 and 5 to this Chapter;

Whereas the eligibility of these products on import for such exemption, reduction or suspension of duty is subject to conditions laid down in the relevant Community provisions;

Whereas, in order to ensure uniform application of the combined nomenclature, the said conditions must be laid down by Community provisions;

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) N° 4142/87 of 9 December 1987 determining the conditions under which certain goods are eligible on import for a favourable tariff arrangement by reason of their end-use (7) sets out both the general and minimum conditions governing such goods; whereas that Regulation is also applicable to the petroleum products in question;

Whereas, however, in view of the special requirements arising out of the particular nature and end-use of the products in question, and of the characteristics of the operations to which they are subjected, special provisions are needed as regards the imposition on the person concerned of certain special obligations and as regards common storage; whereas, moreover, cases coming within Additional Notes 4 (n) and 5 to Chapter 27 of the combined nomenclature, the period within which end-use must take place should remain at six months;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are

in accordance with the opinion of the Nomenclature Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
