THE ACP-EC CUSTOMS COOPERATION COMMITTEE,

Having regard to the ACP-EC Partnership Agreement signed at Cotonou on 23 June 2000, and in particular Article 38 of Protocol 1 to Annex V thereto,

Whereas

(2) Article 38(1) of the said Protocol provides for derogations from the rules of origin to be granted whenever the development of an existing industry or the establishment of a new one warrants it;

(3) Article 38(8) of the said Protocol provides that the derogations are granted automatically within an annual quota of 8000 tonnes for canned tuna;

(4) On 16 July 2001 the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP States) submitted a request, on behalf of the Governments of Côte d'Ivoire and of Papua New Guinea, for a derogation from the rule of origin in the Protocol, in respect of an annual quantity of 2284 tonnes of canned tuna produced by these countries to be allocated as follows: 1142 tonnes to Côte d'Ivoire from 1 October 2001 to 30 September 2002 and 1142 tonnes per year to Papua New Guinea from 1 October 2001 to 30 September 2003;

(5) The derogation is requested under the relevant provisions of Protocol 1 to Annex V, particularly with regard to Article 38(8) and the requested quantities fall within the limits of the annual quota which are granted automatically upon request of the ACP States;

(6) Therefore, pursuant to Article 38(8), a derogation can be granted to Côte d'Ivoire and to Papua New Guinea in respect of canned tuna for the quantities and for the periods requested,
