AGREEMENT in the form of an exchange of letters amending the Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Kingdom of Norway

Letter No 1

Brussels, ...

Your Excellency,

As a result of the implementation with effect from 1 January 1978 of the recommendation of the Customs Cooperation Council of 18 June 1976 concerning the amendment of the nomenclature for the classification of goods in Customs Tariffs, and of certain autonomous changes to the Common Customs Tariff and the Norwegian Customs Tariff, adjustments should be made to the nomenclature of certain tariff specifications in the Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Kingdom of Norway signed on 14 May 1973.

Moreover, in order to simplify the procedure to be followed in future for adjusting tariff specifications in the event of further amendments to the Customs Tariff of one or other of the Contracting Parties, an Article 12a should be inserted in the Agreement.

The amendments referred to above are annexed.

I have the honour to confirm the agreement of the Community to the amendments in question and I would propose that they enter into force with effect from 1 January 1978.

I should be obliged if you would confirm the agreement of your Government to the foregoing.

Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurance of my highest consideration.

On behalf of the Council of the European Communities
