(b)

the proof of origin and the transport documents were issued no later than 30 April 2004;

(c)

such a provision is also provided for in the agreements concluded prior to 1 May 2004 between Turkey and the Community; and

(b)

the approved exporter applies the rules of origin in force under that agreement provided for either in Protocol 1 to the Agreement on coal and steel products or in Protocol 3 to the Decision on agricultural products.

3.   Requests for subsequent verification of proof of origin issued under the preferential agreements referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 shall be accepted by the competent customs authorities of either Turkey or the Member States for a period of three years after the issue of the proof of origin concerned and may be made by those authorities for a period of three years after acceptance of the proof of origin submitted to those authorities in support of an import declaration.

2.   Provisions on free circulation for industrial products shall be applied or preferential tariff treatment shall be granted in such cases, subject to the submission to the customs authorities of the importing country, within four months of the date of accession, of either a proof of status or a proof of origin issued retrospectively by the customs authorities of the exporting country.
