COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 316/94 of 7 February 1994 reducing the variable components applicable to certain goods originating in the Slovak Republic resulting from the processing of agricultural products referred to in the Annex to Regulation (EC) No 3448/93

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 113 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas Council Regulation (EC) No 3448/93 of 6 December 1993 laying down the trade arrangements applicable to certain goods resulting from the processing of agricultural products (1) establishes the method of calculation of variable components applicable to goods referred to in Table 1 of Annex B thereto;

Whereas, Article 1 of the Supplementary Protocol, between the European Community and the Slovak Republic to the Interim Agreement between the European Economic Community and the European Coal and Steel Community, of the one part, and the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic, of the other part, on trade and trade-related matters (2), provides that the latter shall apply to the Slovak Republic with the amendments referred to therein;

Whereas Article 2 (2) of Protocol 3 to the Interim Agreement provides that account shall be taken of the measures, adopted pursuant to Article 14 of that Agreement; whereas such measures, as amended by the Additional Protocol (3) to the abovementioned Interim Agreeement, implemented since 1 July 1993 by Decision 93/421/EEC (4) provide in particular for a 20 % levy reduction from 1 January 1993 and a 60 % reduction from 1 July 1993, applicable to skimmed-milk powder and butter and to barley within the limits of quantities established on the basis of traditional imports of these products increased by an average of 10 % for each year;

Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 2109/92 (5) reducing the variable components applicable to certain goods originating in the former Czech and Slovak Federal Republic, on the basis of a method equivalent to that for agricultural products used in the composition of the goods referred to in Protocol 3, has taken as a reference for the establishment of the quota reducing these variable components the value of the goods subject under the Interim Agreement to the collection of an agricultural levy component imported from the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic during 1990 increased by 10 % for 1992; whereas, by virtue of the exchanges of letters between the Commission of the European Communities, of the one part, and the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic, of the other part, these countries have stated that they have mutually agreed to share the quota in a ratio, respectively of 2 to 1;

Whereas, by virtue of Article 8 of the Supplementary Protocol, the sharing of the quotas referred to in Annex XIII b is applicable to skimmed-milk powder and butter and to barley from 1 January 1994; whereas, taking account of the measures adopted for the abovementioned agricultural products used in the composition of the goods listed in the Annex to Protocol 3, it is necessary to provide for a reduction of the variable components of the said goods and the quota concerned applicable from the same date and during the successive periods referred to in Table 1 of the Annex to Protocol 3,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1. From 1 January 1994, goods listed in the Annex to this Regulation originating in the Slovak Republic shall be subject to a reduced variable component determined in accordance with Article 2 within the limits of an ad valorem quota of ECU 1 570 400 for 1994, ECU 1 691 200 for 1995 and ECU 1 812 000 for 1996 and successive years.

2. For the purposes of this Regulation, goods meeting the conditions established by Protocol 4 to the Interim Agreement shall be considered to be 'originating goods'.

Article 2

The reduced variable components shall be calculated by reducing the difference, established in accordance with Article 3 (2) of Regulation (EC) No 3448/93, between the average threshold price and the average cif price or free-at-frontier price for each basic product by 30 %, except that the difference established for basic products falling within Chapter 4 of the combined nomenclature (dairy products) and for barley shall be reduced by 60 %.

The amounts thus obtained shall apply to the quantities of basic products considered to have been used in the manufacture of the goods concerned in accordance with Article 13 (2) of Regulation (EC) No 3448/93.

Article 3

The variable components applicable to goods listed in the Annex to Regulation (EC) No 3448/93 but not listed in the Annex to this Regulation and to goods admitted once the quota referred to in Article 1 has been exceeded shall be those established directly pursuant to Article 3 of Regulation (EC) No 3448/93.

Article 4

This Regulation shall enter into force the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

It shall apply with effect from 1 January 1994.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 7 February 1994.
