Article 4

1.   Ireland and the United Kingdom shall apply to imports originating in Malta the customs duties and rules of origin applied in respect of Malta at the time of entry into force of this Protocol.

This provision shall apply until the entry into force of the provisions governing the second stage but not later than 30 June 1977.

However, the duties thus reduced may in no case be lower than those applied by Ireland and the United Kingdom in respect of the Community as originally constituted.

3.   Should the progressive alignment of the Irish and the United Kingdom tariffs on the Common Customs Tariff result in the application by Ireland and the United Kingdom as regards Malta of customs duties lower than those applied in respect of that State at the time this Protocol enters into force, the first-mentioned customs duties shall be applied.

Article 5

1.   The rates on the basis of which the new Member States apply to Malta the reductions provided for in Article 3 and Article 4 (2) shall be those which they apply at the time in respect of third countries.

2.   By way of derogation from the provisions of Article 3 and Article 4 (2), should the application of these provisions temporarily result in tariff movements away from alignment on the final duty, the new Member States may maintain their duties until the level of these duties has been reached on the occasion of a subsequent alignment, or they may apply the duty resulting from a subsequent alignment as soon as this alignment reaches or passes the said level.

Article 6

1.   The reduced duties calculated in accordance with Articles 3, 4 and 5 shall be applied by rounding to the first decimal place.

2.   Subject to the effect to be given by the Community to Article 39 (5) of the Act of Accession as regards the specific duties or the specific part of the mixed duties of the customs tariffs of Ireland and the United Kingdom, the provisions of Articles 4 and 5 shall be applied by rounding to the fourth place of decimals.

Article 7

Where, for the products listed in Annex I to the Agreement, the new Member States apply duties comprising protective and fiscal elements, only the protective elements of those duties, within the meaning of Article 38 of the Act of Accession, shall be aligned on the preferential duties set out in that Annex and reduced as provided in Articles 3, 4 and 5.

Article 8

The arrangements which Denmark applies in respect of Malta, in application of Article 7 of Annex I to the Agreement, may under no circumstances be more favourable than those which it applies in respect of the Community as originally constituted.

Article 9

1.   Ireland and the United Kingdom shall apply to imports originating in Malta the quantitative restrictions in force in respect of Malta at the time of entry into force of this Protocol.

This provision shall apply until the entry into force of the provisions governing the second stage but not later than 30 June 1977.

2.   The arrangements which Ireland and the United Kingdom apply in respect of Malta may not be less favourable than those provided for in Article 7 of Annex I to the Agreement.

3.   However, the quantitative restrictions in force in Ireland which are referred to in Protocol 7 of the Act of Accession shall be abolished as regards Malta in accordance with procedures to be determined, account being taken of the provisions of the above-mentioned Protocol.

Article 10

Malta shall apply in respect of Denmark the reductions in customs duties and charges having equivalent effect provided for in Articles 1, 2, 3 and 4 of Annex II to the Agreement at the rates and in accordance with the timetable set out therein.

Article 11

1.   Malta shall continue to apply to imports originating in Ireland and the United Kingdom the tariff and rules of origin applied prior to the Agreement, without prejudice to the protective clauses of that Agreement.

This provision shall apply until the entry into force of the provisions governing the second stage but not later than 30 June 1977.

2.   Products originating in Ireland and the United Kingdom in respect of which the rates of customs duties and charges having equivalent effect, reduced in accordance with Article 1 of Annex II to the Agreement, are lower than the customs duties and charges having equivalent effect applied by Malta at the time of entry into force of this Protocol may be imported into Malta at the reduced rates of customs duties and charges having equivalent effect in accordance with the timetable set out in the Agreement and under the rules of origin appropriate thereto.

ANNEX

PROTOCOL

concerning the definition of the concept of ‘originating products’ and methods of administrative cooperation

TITLE I

Definition of the concept of ‘originating products’

Article 1

For the purpose of implementing the Agreement, the following products, on condition that they were transported directly within the meaning of Article 5, shall be considered as:

1.

products originating in Malta:

(a)

products wholly obtained in Malta;

(b)

products obtained in Malta, in the manufacture of which products other than those wholly obtained in Malta are used, provided that the said products have undergone sufficient working or processing within the meaning of Article 3. This condition shall not apply, however, to products which, within the meaning of this Protocol, originate in the Community;

2.

products originating in the Community:

(a)

products wholly obtained in the Community;

(b)

products obtained in the Community, in the manufacture of which products other than those wholly obtained in the Community are used, provided that the said products have undergone sufficient working or processing within the meaning of Article 3. This condition shall not apply, however, to products which, within the meaning of this Protocol, originate in Malta.

The products in List C in Annex IV shall be temporarily excluded from the scope of this Protocol.

Article 2

The following shall be considered as ‘wholly obtained’ either in Malta or in the Community, within the meaning of Articles 1 (1) (a) and (2) (a):

(a)

mineral products extracted from their soil or from their seabed;

(b)

vegetable products harvested there;

(c)

live animals born and raised there;

(d)

products from live animals raised there;

(e)

products obtained by hunting or fishing conducted there;

(f)

products of sea fishing and other products taken from the sea by their vessels;

(g)

products made aboard their factory ships exclusively from products referred to in subparagraph (f);

(h)

used articles collected there fit only for the recovery of raw materials;

(i)

waste and scrap resulting from manufacturing operations conducted there;

(j)

goods produced there exclusively from products specified in subparagraphs (a) to (i).

Article 3

1.   For the purpose of implementing the provisions of Article 1 (1) (b) and (2) (b), the following shall be considered as sufficient working or processing:

(a)

working or processing as a result of which the goods obtained receive a classification under a heading other than that covering each of the products worked or processed, except, however, working or processing specified in List A in Annex II, where the special provisions of that list apply;

(b)

working or processing specified in List B in Annex III.

‘Sections’, ‘Chapters’ and ‘headings’ shall mean the sections, chapters and headings in the Brussels Nomenclature for the classification of goods in customs tariffs.

2.   When, for a given product obtained, a percentage rule limits in Lists A and B the value of the materials and parts which can be used, the total value of these materials and parts, whether or not they have changed heading in the course of the working, processing or assembly within the limits and under the conditions laid down in each of those two lists, may not exceed, in relation to the value of the product obtained, the value corresponding either to the common rate, if the rates are identical in both lists, or to the higher of the two if they are different.

3.   For the purpose of implementing Article 1 (1) (b) and (2) (b), the following shall always be considered as insufficient working or processing to confer the status of originating product, whether or not there is a change of heading:

(a)

operations to ensure the preservation of merchandise in good condition during transport and storage (ventilation, spreading out, drying, chilling, placing in salt, sulphur dioxide or other aqueous solutions, removal of damaged parts, and like operations);

(b)

simple operations consisting of removal of dust, sifting or screening, sorting, classifying, matching (including the making up of sets of articles), washing, painting, cutting up;

(c)

 

(i)

changes of packaging and breaking up and assembly of consignments;

(ii)

simple placing in bottles, flasks, bags, cases, boxes, fixing on cards or boards, etc., and all other packaging operations;

(d)

affixing marks, labels or other like distinguishing signs on products or their packaging;

(e)

simple mixing of products, whether or not of different kinds, where one or more components of the mixture do not meet the conditions laid down in this Protocol to enable them to be considered as originating;

(f)

simple assembly of parts of articles to constitute a complete article;

(g)

a combination of two or more operations specified in subparagraphs (a) to (f);

(h)

slaughter of animals.

Article 4

Where Lists A and B referred to in Article 3 provide that goods obtained in Malta or in the Community shall be considered as originating therein only if the value of the products worked or processed does not exceed a given percentage of the value of the goods obtained, the values to be taken into consideration for such a percentage shall be:

on the one hand,

as regards products whose importation can be proved: their customs value at the time of importation,

as regards products of undetermined origin: the earliest ascertainable price paid for such products in the territory of the Contracting Party where manufacture takes place;

and on the other hand,

the ex-works price of the goods obtained, less internal taxes refunded or refundable on exportation.

Article 5

1.   For the purpose of implementing Article 1, originating products whose transport is effected without entering into territory other than that of the Contracting Parties are considered as transported directly from Malta to the Community or from the Community to Malta. However, goods originating in Malta or in the Community and constituting one single consignment which is not split up may be transported through territory other than that of the Contracting Parties with, should the occasion arise, transhipment or temporary warehousing in such territory, provided that the crossing of the latter territory is justified for geographical reasons and that the goods have remained under the surveillance of the customs authorities in the country of transit or warehousing, that they have not entered into commerce of such countries nor been delivered for home use there and have not undergone operations other than unloading, reloading or any operation designed to maintain them in good condition.

2.   Evidence that the conditions referred to in paragraph 1 have been fulfilled shall be supplied to the responsible customs authorities in the Community or in Malta by the production of:

(a)

a through bill of lading issued in the exporting country covering the passage through the country of transit; or

(b)

a certificate issued by the customs authorities of the country of transit:

giving an exact description of the goods;

stating the dates of unloading and reloading of the goods or of their embarkation or disembarkation, identifying the ships used;

certifying the conditions under which the goods remained in the transit country;

(c)

or failing these, any substantiating documents.

TITLE II

Arrangements for administrative cooperation

Article 6

1.   Evidence of originating status, within the meaning of this Protocol, of products is given by a movement certificate EUR. 1 of which a specimen is given in Annex V to this Protocol.

However, the evidence of originating status, within the meaning of this Protocol, of products which form the subject of postal consignments (including parcels), provided that they consist only of originating products and that the value does not exceed 1 000 units of account per consignment, may be given by a form EUR. 2, of which a specimen is given in Annex VI to this Protocol.

The unit of account (u. a.) has a value of 0.88867088 gramme of fine gold. Should the unit of account be changed, the Contracting Parties shall make contact with each other at the level of the Association Council to redefine the value in terms of gold.

2.   Without prejudice to Article 3 (3), where, at the request of the person declaring the goods at the customs, a dismantled or non-assembled article falling within Chapter 84 or 85 of the Brussels Nomenclature is imported by instalments on the conditions laid down by the competent authorities, it shall be considered to be a single article and a movement certificate may be submitted for the whole article upon importation of the first instalment.

3.   Accessories, spare parts and tools dispatched with a piece of equipment, machine, apparatus or vehicle which are part of the normal equipment and included in the price thereof or are not separately invoiced are regarded as one with the piece of equipment, machine, apparatus or vehicle in question.

Article 7

1.   A movement certificate EUR. 1 shall be issued by the customs authorities of the exporting State when the goods to which it relates are exported. It shall be made available to the exporter as soon as actual exportation has been effected or ensured.

2.   In exceptional circumstances a movement certificate EUR. 1 may also be issued after exportation of the goods to which it relates if it was not issued at the time of exportation because of errors or involuntary ommissions or special circumstances. In this case, the certificate shall bear a special reference to the conditions in which it was issued.

3.   A movement certificate EUR. 1 shall be issued only on application having been made in writing by the exporter. Such application shall be made on a form, of which a specimen is given in Annex V to this Protocol, which shall be completed in accordance with this Protocol.

4.   A movement certificate EUR. 1 may be issued only where it can serve as the documentary evidence required for the purpose of implementing the Agreement.

5.   Applications for movement certificates EUR. 1 must be preserved for at least two years by the customs authorities of the exporting country.

Article 8

1.   The movement certificate EUR. 1 shall be issued by the customs authorities of the exporting State, if the goods can be considered ‘originating products’ within the meaning of this Protocol.

2.   For the purpose of verifying whether the conditions stated in paragraph 1 have been met, the customs authorities shall have the right to call for any documentary evidence or to carry out any check which they consider appropriate.

3.   It shall be the responsibility of the customs authorities of the exporting State to ensure that the forms referred to in Article 9 are duly completed. In particular, they shall check whether the space reserved for the description of the goods has been completed in such a manner as to exclude all possibility of fraudulent additions. To this end, the description of the goods must be indicated without leaving any blank lines. Where the space is not completely filled a horizontal line must be drawn below the last line of the description, the empty space being crossed through.

4.   The date of issue of the movement certificate must be indicated in the part of the certificate reserved for the customs authorities.

Article 9

Movement certificates EUR. 1 shall be made out on the form of which a specimen is given in Annex V to this Protocol.

Certificates shall be made out in one of these languages and in accordance with the provisions of the domestic law of the exporting State; if they are handwritten, they shall be completed in ink and in capital letters.

Each certificate shall measure 210 × 297 mm, a tolerance of up to plus 8 or minus 5 mm in the length may be allowed. The paper used must be white-sized writing paper not containing mechanical pulp and weighing not less than 25 g/m2. It shall have a printed green guilloche pattern background making any falsification by mechanical or chemical means apparent to the eye.

The exporting States may reserve the right to print the certificates themselves or may have them printed by approved printers. In the latter case, each certificate must include a reference to such approval. Each certificate must bear the name and address of the printer or a mark by which the printer can be identified. It shall also bear a serial number, either printed or not, by which it can be identified.

2.   The exporter or his representative shall submit with his request any appropriate supporting document proving that the goods to be exported are such as to qualify for the issue of a movement certificate EUR. 1.

Article 11

A movement certificate EUR. 1 must be submitted, within five months of the date of issue by the customs authorities of the exporting State, to the customs authorities of the importing State where the goods are entered.

Article 12

Movement certificates EUR. 1 shall be submitted to customs authorities in the importing State, in accordance with the procedures laid down by that State. The said authorities may require a translation of a certificate. They may also require the import declaration to be accompanied by a statement from the importer to the effect that the goods meet the conditions required for the implementation of the Agreement.

Article 13

1.   A movement certificate EUR. 1 which is submitted to the customs authorities of the importing State after the final date for presentation specified in Article 11, may be accepted for the purpose of applying preferential treatment, where the failure to submit the certificate by the final date set is due to reasons of force majeure or exceptional circumstances.

2.   In other cases of belated presentation, the customs authorities of the importing State may accept the certificates where the goods have been submitted to them before the said final date.

Article 14

The discovery of slight discrepancies between the statements made in the movement certificate EUR. 1 and those made in the documents submitted to the customs office for the purpose of carrying out the formalities for importing the goods shall not ipso facto render the certificate null and void if it is duly established that the certificate does correspond to the goods submitted.

Article 15

It shall always be possible to replace one or more movement certificates EUR. 1 by one or more other movement certificates EUR. 1 provided that this is done at the customs office where the goods are located.

It shall be made out in one of the languages in which the Agreement is drawn up and in accordance with the provisions of the domestic law of the exporting State. If it is handwritten it must be completed in ink and in capital letters. If the goods contained in the consignment have already been subject to verification in the exporting country by reference to the definition of the concept of ‘originating products’ the exporter may refer to this check in the ‘Remarks’ box of form EUR. 2.

Form EUR. 2 shall be 210 × 148 mm. A tolerance of up to plus 8 or minus 5 mm in the length may be allowed. The paper used shall be white paper dressed for writing not containing mechanical pulp and weighing not less than 64 g/m2.

In the latter case each form must include a reference to such approval. In addition, the form must bear the distinctive sign attributed to the approved printer and a serial number, either printed or not, by which it can be identified.

A form EUR. 2 shall be completed for each postal consignment.

Where necessary, additional documentary evidence of the nature of the goods and the conditions under which they have been exhibited may be required.

3.   Paragraph 1 shall apply to any trade, industrial, agricultural or crafts exhibition, fair or similar public show or display which is not organized for private purposes in shops or business premises with a view to the sale of foreign goods, and during which the goods remain under customs control.

Article 19

1.   When a certificate is issued within the meaning of Article 7 (2) of this Protocol after the goods to which it relates have actually been exported, the exporter must in the application referred to in Article 7 (3) of this Protocol:

indicate the place and date of exportation of the goods to which the certificate relates;

certify that no movement certificate EUR. 1 was issued at the time of exportation of the goods in question, and state the reasons.

Article 21

Malta and the Community shall take all necessary steps to ensure that goods traded under cover of a movement certificate EUR. 1, and which in the course of transport use a free zone situated in their territory, are not replaced by other goods and that they do not undergo handling other than normal operations designed to prevent their deterioration.

Article 22

In order to ensure the proper application of this title, Malta and the Community shall assist each other, through their respective customs administrations, in checking the authenticity of movement certificates EUR. 1 and the accuracy of the information concerning the actual origin of the products concerned and the declarations by exporters on forms EUR. 2.

Article 23

Penalties shall be imposed on any person who, in order to enable goods to be accepted as eligible for preferential treatment, draws up or causes to be drawn up, either a document which contains incorrect particulars for the purpose of obtaining a movement certificate EUR. 1 or a form EUR. 2 containing incorrect particulars.

Article 24

1.   Subsequent verifications of movement certificates EUR. 1 and of forms EUR. 2 shall be carried out at random or whenever the customs authorities of the importing State have reasonable doubt as to the authenticity of the document or the accuracy of the information regarding the true origin of the goods in question.

2.   For the purpose of implementing paragraph 1, the customs authorities of the importing State shall return the movement certificate EUR. 1 or the form EUR. 2, or a photocopy thereof, to the customs authorities of the exporting State, giving, where appropriate, the reasons of form or substance for an inquiry. The invoice, if it has been submitted, or a copy thereof shall be attached to the form EUR. 2 and the customs authorities shall forward any information that has been obtained suggesting that the particulars given on the said certificate or the said form are inaccurate.

If the customs authorities of the importing State decide to suspend execution of the Agreement while awaiting the results of the verification, they shall offer to release the goods to the importer subject to any precautionary measures judged necessary.

3.   The customs authorities of the importing State shall be informed of the results of the verification as quickly as possible. These results must be such as to make it possible to determine whether the disputed movement certificate EUR. 1 or form EUR. 2 applies to the goods actually exported, and whether these goods can, in fact, qualify for the application of the preferential arrangements.

When such disputes cannot be settled between the customs authorities of the importing State and those of the exporting State, or when they raise a question as to the interpretation of this Protocol, they shall be submitted to the Customs Cooperation Committee.

In all cases the settlement of disputes between the importer and the customs authorities of the importing State shall be under the legislation of the said State.

Article 25

The Association Council may decide to amend the provisions of this Protocol.
