COMMISSION DECISION

of 5 July 1982

establishing that the apparatus described as 'Aminco - Spectrofluorometer, model J 4-8970' may not be imported free of Common Customs Tariff duties

(82/480/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 28 December 1981, Belgium has requested the Commission to invoke the procedure provided for in Article 7 of Regulation (EEC) No 2784/79 in order to determine whether or not the apparatus described as 'Aminco - Spectrofluorometer, model J 4-8970', ordered 6 November 1978 and to be used for research on the mechanisms of lead interference in heme synthesis in various types of cells and on the potentials of membrane cells, should be considered to be 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 14 May 1982 within the framework of the Committee on Duty-Free Arrangements to examine the matter;

Whereas this examination showed that the apparatus in question is a spectrofluorometer; whereas its objective technical characteristics such as the resolution power of the spectrum and the use to which it is put make it specially suited to scientific research; whereas, moreover, apparatus of the same kind are principally used for scientific activities; whereas it must therefore be considered to be a scientific apparatus;

Whereas, however, on the basis of information received from Member States, apparatus of scientific value equivalent to the said apparatus, capable of being used for the same purposes, are currently being manufactured in the Community; whereas this applies, in particular, to the apparatus 'SFR 100' manufactured by Baird Atomic Ltd, East Street, UK-Braintree, Essex and to the apparatus 'JY 3 C' manufactured by Jobin Yvon, 16-18, rue du Canal, F-91163 Longjumeau Cédex,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The apparatus described as 'Aminco - Spectrofluorometer, model J 4-8970', which is the subject of an application by Belgium of 28 December 1981, may not be imported free of Common Customs Tariff duties.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 5 July 1982.
