COMMISSION DECISION of 25 January 1980 refusing to accept the scientific character of the apparatus described as "NNSS-Satellite Timing Receiver, model T 200" (80/207/EEC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1798/75 of 10 July 1975 on the importation free of Common Customs Tariff duties of educational, scientific and cultural materials (1), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1027/79 (2),

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2784/79 of 12 December 1979 laying down provisions for the implementation of Regulation (EEC) No 1798/75 (3), and in particular Article 7 thereof,

Whereas, by letter dated 14 June 1979, the Government of Italy requested the Commission to invoke the procedure at present laid down in Article 7 of Regulation (EEC) No 2784/79 in order to determine whether or not the apparatus described as "NNSS-Satellite Timing Receiver, model T 200", to be used for the determination of universal time, should be considered as a scientific apparatus and, where the reply is in the affirmative, whether apparatus of equivalent scientific value is currently being manufactured in the Community;

Whereas, in accordance with the provisions of Article 7 (5) of Regulation (EEC) No 2784/79, a group of experts composed of representatives of all the Member States met on 15 November 1979 within the Committee on Duty-Free Arrangements to examine this particular case;

Whereas this examination showed that the apparatus in question is a receiver of signals transmitted by a satellite ; whereas it does not have the requisite objective characteristics making it specifically suited to scientific research ; whereas, apparatus of the same kind are principally used for the realization of non-scientific activities ; whereas its use in the case in question could not alone confer upon it the character of a scientific apparatus ; whereas it therefore cannot be regarded as a scientific apparatus,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The apparatus described as "NNSS-Satellite Timing Receiver, model T 200", is not considered to be a scientific apparatus.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 25 January 1980.
