DECISION No 4/92 OF THE EEC-SAN MARINO COOPERATION COMMITTEE of 22 December 1992 concerning certain methods of administrative cooperation for implementation of the Interim Agreement and the procedure for forwarding goods to the Republic of San Marino

(93/104/EEC)THE COOPERATION COMMITTEE,

Having regard to the Interim Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Republic of San Marino, and in particular Articles 7 (3) (a), (c) and 13 (8) thereof,

Whereas Article 3 (3) (c) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2726/90 of 17 September 1990 on Community transit (1) stipulates that the procedure for internal Community transit may apply to the movement of Community goods in cases in which a Community provision has expressly provided for the application of that procedure;

Whereas, in accordance with the terms of the Agreement, it is necessary to determine, firstly, the procedure for forwarding goods to San Marino, referred to in Article 7 (3) of the Agreement and, secondly, the methods of administrative cooperation necessary for the proper functioning of the Agreement;

Whereas, in the light of experience gained in the Community with regard to methods of adminsitrative cooperation and the forwarding of goods within Community territory, it is appropriate, in the present case, to take as a guide the methods employed in the Community to ensure the free movement of goods within the Community;

Whereas the provisions adopted by this Decision may, moreover, be reviewed by the Cooperation Committee in the light of the situation obtaining on 1 January 1993, and also by the Contracting Parties if the Agreement itself is reviewed,

Done at Brussels, 22 December 1992.

For the Cooperation Committee The Chairman Pietro GIACOMINI

Extract from the summary of the conclusions of the first meeting of the EEC-San Marino Cooperation Committee

The Parties agreed to postpone implementation of Decision No 4 until 1 April 1993, to give the Republic of San Marino sufficient time to introduce the procedures and issue the documents required under that Decision.

Pending implementation of the Decision, i. e. until 31 March 1993, and to ensure that Community provisions concerning the circulation of goods between the Community and the Republic of San Marino are correctly and simply applied, the Cooperation Committee agreed that the formalities for recording trade between the Community and the Republic of San Marino should be carried out through one of the Community customs offices listed in the Annex to the Interim Agreement, without prejudice to existing commitments entered into by the Republic of San Marino and Italy by virtue of the exchange of letters of 21 December 1972. It was agreed that, in respect of transit between the abovementioned customs offices and San Marino during this transitional period, the movement of goods originating from, or bound for, a Member State other than Italy will be subject to guarantee equivalent to that provided for in the application of internal Community transit.
