COMMISSION DECISION

of 2 December 1983

establishing that the apparatus described as 'Perkin Elmer - Infrared Spectrophotometer, model 283' may not be imported free of Common Customs Tariff duties

(83/629/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 last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 608/82 (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 30 May 1983, the Federal Republic of Germany 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 'Perkin Elmer - Infrared Spectrophotometer, model 283', ordered on 5 December 1978 and intended to be used for basic research in the field of solid-state physics and in particular for the registration of absorption and reflection in the spectral region 2,5 and 50 m, 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 15 November 1983 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 spectrophotometer;

Whereas its objective technical characteristics such as the precision of the analysis in the infrared range, 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 'SP 2000', manufactured by Pye Unicam Ltd, Oxford Street, UK-Cambridge CB1 2PX,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The apparatus described as 'Perkin Elmer - Infrared Spectrophotometer, model 283' which is subject of an application by the Federal Republic of Germany of 30 May 1983 may not be imported free of Common Customs Tariff duties.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 2 December 1983.
