DECISION No 3/2005 OF THE EU-ROMANIA ASSOCIATION COUNCIL

of 5 July 2005

concerning the improvement of the trade arrangements for processed agricultural products provided in Protocol 3 to the Europe Agreement

(2005/877/EC)

THE ASSOCIATION COUNCIL,

Having regard to the Europe Agreement establishing an association between the European Communities and their Member States, of the one part, and Romania, of the other part (1), and in particular Article 1(2) of Protocol 3 thereto,

Whereas:

(1)

Protocol 3 lays down the trade arrangements for processed agricultural products between the Community and Romania. Protocol 3 has last been amended by the Protocol adapting the trade aspects of the Europe Agreement (2).

(2)

New trade improvements have recently been negotiated to facilitate economic convergence in preparation for accession and lay down concessions in the form of complete liberalisation of trade for certain processed agricultural products, reduced duties or tariff quotas for others.

(3)

Under the second indent of Article 2(1) of Protocol 3 the duties applied may be reduced by decision of the Association Council in response to reductions resulting from mutual concessions relating to processed agricultural products.

(4)

On certain processed agricultural products covered by Protocol 3 but not listed in this Decision or for which the opened quotas are exhausted the existing trade provisions laid down by Protocol 3 should continue to apply.

(5)

For processed agricultural products not covered by Annex I to the Treaty no export refunds should be granted under Commission Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000 of 13 July 2000 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of granting export refunds on certain agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, and the criteria for fixing the amount of such refunds (3).

(6)

For processed agricultural products originating in Romania and exported to the Community no export refunds should be granted.

(7)

The annual quotas provided for in Annex III and Annex IV to this Decision should be opened under the conditions specified in those Annexes. For the year 2005, in view of the fact that these annual quotas can only be opened after 1 January 2005, on a date to be fixed, they should be reduced in proportion to the number of months already elapsed that year,

HAS DECIDED AS FOLLOWS:

Article 1

From the date of entry into force of this Decision, the customs duties set out in Annex I shall be applicable to the importation into the Community of goods originating in Romania listed in that Annex.

From the date of entry into force of this Decision, the customs duties set out in Annex II shall be applicable to the importation into Romania of goods originating in the Community listed in that Annex.

Article 2

Processed agricultural products not listed in Annex I to the Treaty establishing the European Community originating in the Community and exported to Romania shall not be eligible for export refunds granted under Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000.

Processed agricultural products not listed in Annex I to the said Treaty originating in Romania and exported to the Community shall not be eligible for export refunds in Romania.

Article 3

The tariff quotas referred to in Annex III and Annex IV shall be open under the conditions laid down therein. For 2005, the volume of the quotas shall be reduced in proportion to the number of months already elapsed that year.

Article 4

For processed agricultural products, which are not covered by Annex I, II, III and IV or for which the quotas set out in Annex III and IV are exhausted, the provisions laid down in Protocol 3 shall continue to apply, unless otherwise specified.

Article 5

This Decision shall enter into force on the first day of the first month following the notification by both parties on the completion of their internal procedures for ratification, acceptance or approval.

Done at Brussels, 5 July 2005.
