AGREEMENT

between the European Community and the Republic of Serbia on trade in textile products

THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY, hereinafter referred to as ‘the Community’,

of the one part,

and

THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA, hereinafter referred to as ‘Serbia’,

of the other part,

DESIRING to promote, with a view to permanent cooperation and in conditions providing every security for trade, the orderly and equitable development of trade in textile products between the Community and Serbia (hereinafter referred to together as Parties), as a further step towards deeper trade and political relations including substantial trade liberalisation between the two Parties in the framework of the Stabilisation and Association process;

CONSIDERING that United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 (1999) established an international civil presence in order to provide an interim administration for Kosovo (United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo), and it is not possible at this time to apply the obligations undertaken in this Agreement in Kosovo,

HAVE AGREED AS FOLLOWS:

Article 1

This Agreement establishes the regime applicable to trade of textile products originating in the Community and in Serbia listed in Annex I.

TITLE I

BASIC PROVISIONS

Article 2

The Parties agree that:

1.

the rates of customs duties applicable in Serbia to textile products originating in the Community shall be dismantled according to the schedule in Annex II;

2.

the Community will continue to grant duty free treatment to textile products originating in Serbia in accordance with the applicable Community legislation.

Article 3

1.   Quantitative restrictions on imports of textile products listed in Annex I into Serbia of goods originating in the Community and measures having equivalent effect, including non-tariff barriers as specified, in particular, in Annex III, shall not be maintained nor introduced from the date of application of this Agreement except as provided under Articles 5 and 7.

2.   Without prejudice to Article 4(1), quantitative restrictions on imports of textile products listed in Annex I into the Community of goods originating in Serbia shall be suspended. Measures having equivalent effect, including non-tariff barriers as specified, in particular, in Annex III, shall not be maintained nor introduced from the date of application of this Agreement, except as provided for under Articles 5, 6 and 7.

Article 4

1.   The Community will suspend the quantitative restrictions currently in force for categories listed in Annex IV, as soon as Serbia notifies to the Community that it has implemented its commitments under Article 2(1).

2.   Title II lays down the arrangements applicable to quantitative restrictions and the surveillance regime.

Article 5

1.   Either Party retains the right to suspend its obligations in Articles 2, 3 and in Article 4(1) should the other Party fail to fulfil its obligations.

2.   If the Community re-introduces quantitative restrictions, they shall be established at the year 2004 levels, increased by annual growth rates as last applied for that year.

3.   The Parties agree to consult with each other before exercising their rights, in accordance with Article 8.

Article 6

1.   With a view to ensuring the effective functioning of this Agreement, the Parties agree to cooperate fully in order to prevent, to investigate and to take any necessary legal and/or administrative action against circumvention by transhipment, re-routing, false declaration concerning the country or place of origin, falsification of documents, false declaration concerning fibre content, quantities, description or classification of merchandise and by whatever other means. Accordingly, the Parties agree to establish the necessary legal provisions and administrative procedures permitting effective action to be taken against such circumvention, which shall include the adoption of legally binding corrective measures against exporters and/or importers involved.

2.   If it appears on the basis of available information that this Agreement is circumvented, the Community will consult with Serbia in accordance with Article 8.

3.   If the Parties fail to reach a mutually satisfactory solution, the Community shall have the right:

(a)

to introduce quantitative restrictions against the same products originating in Serbia as those involved in circumvention or to take any other appropriate measures;

(b)

to set off the relevant quantities against the quantitative restrictions that are established under this Agreement.

4.   Where available information shows that false declaration concerning fibre content, quantities, description or classification of products originating in Community or in Serbia has occurred, both Parties shall have the right to refuse to import the products in question.

5.   The Parties agree to establish a system of administrative cooperation to prevent and to address effectively all problems arising from circumvention in accordance with Annex V.

Article 7

1.   Where as a direct consequence of the application of the liberalisation measures provided for in this Agreement any product is being imported in such increased quantities and under such conditions as to cause or threaten to cause:

(a)

serious injury to domestic producers of like or directly competitive products in the territory of the importing Party, or

(b)

serious disturbances in any related sector of the economy or difficulties which could bring about deterioration in the economic situation of a region,

the Party concerned may take appropriate measures after consultations are held in accordance with Article 8. In case the other Party considers the measure adopted is not justified, it shall be free to suspend the application of substantially equivalent concessions granted under this Agreement after consultations are held in accordance with Article 8.

2.   The Parties may request consultations in accordance with Article 8 when either of them ascertains that during a particular year of application of this Agreement difficulties arise in the Community or in Serbia due to a sharp and substantial increase, by comparison to the preceding year, in imports of a given category of Group I.

Article 8

1.   The consultation procedures referred to in this Agreement shall be governed by the following provisions:

(a)

any request for consultations shall be notified in writing to the other Party;

(b)

the request for consultations shall be followed, within a reasonable period of time and in any case not later than 15 days following the notification, by a report setting out the circumstances which, in the opinion of the requesting Party, justify the submission of such a request;

(c)

the Parties shall enter into consultations within 30 days of notification of the request at the latest, with a view to reaching a mutually acceptable solution within a further 30-day period at the latest, unless this period is extended by common accord.

2.   At the request of either of the Parties, consultations shall be held on any problems arising from the application of this Agreement. Any consultations held under this Article shall take place in a spirit of cooperation and with a desire to reconcile the differences between the Parties.

TITLE II

QUANTITATIVE RESTRICTIONS AND SURVEILLANCE REGIME

Article 9

1.   The classification of the products covered by this Agreement is based on the tariff and statistical nomenclature of the Community (hereinafter referred to as the Combined Nomenclature or, in abbreviated form, CN) and any amendments thereof.

Where any decision on classification results in a change of classification practice or a change of category of any product subject to this Agreement the affected products shall follow the trade regime applicable to the practice or category they fall into after such changes.

Any amendment to the Combined Nomenclature made in accordance with the procedures in force in the Community concerning categories of products covered by this Agreement or any decision relating to the classification of goods shall not have the effect of reducing quantitative restrictions introduced pursuant to this Agreement.

2.   The origin of the products covered by this Agreement shall be determined in accordance with the non-preferential rules of origin in force in the Community.

The origin of the products subject to the tariff dismantling schedule provided for in Article 2(1), shall be determined in accordance with Community rules that apply to autonomous preferential tariff measures for certain countries or territories. Any amendment to these rules of origin shall be communicated to Serbia.

The procedures for control of the origin of the products referred to above are laid down in Annex V.

Article 10

1.   If quantitative restrictions are re-introduced in accordance with Articles 5, 6 and 7, exports of the textile products under quantitative restrictions shall be subject to a double-checking system as specified in Annex V.

2.   Following consultations in accordance with the procedures set out in Article 8, exports of products in Annex I not subject to quantitative restrictions may be subject to the double-checking system referred to in Annex V or to a prior surveillance introduced by the Community.

Article 11

1.   The Parties recognise that re-imports of textile products into the Community after processing in Serbia are a specific form of industrial and trade cooperation.

2.   Should quantitative restrictions be established under the conditions specified in this Agreement, these re-imports shall not be subject to these quantitative restrictions if they are subject to the specific arrangements laid down in Title III.

Article 12

Exports from Serbia of cottage-industry fabrics woven on hand- or foot-operated looms, garments or other made-up articles obtained manually from such fabrics and of traditional folklore handicraft products shall not be subject to the quantitative restrictions established under this Agreement, provided that these products originating in Serbia meet the conditions laid down in Annex VI.

Article 13

1.   Imports into the Community of textile products covered by this Agreement shall not be subject to any quantitative restrictions that may be established under this Agreement, provided that they are declared to be for re-export outside the Community in the same state or after processing, within the framework of the administrative system of control which exists within the Community.

However, the release into free circulation of products into the Community under the conditions referred to above shall be subject to the production of an export licence issued by the Ministry of International Economic Relations of Serbia, and to the production of a proof of origin in accordance with Annex V.

2.   Where the Community authorities ascertain that imports of textile products have been set off against quantitative restrictions that may have been established under this Agreement, but that the products have subsequently been re-exported outside the Community, the authorities shall inform the Ministry of International Economic Relations of Serbia within four weeks of the quantities involved and authorise imports of identical quantities of the same products, which shall not be set off against the quantitative restriction established under this Agreement for the current or the following year, as appropriate.

Article 14

Should quantitative restrictions be introduced under this Agreement, the following provisions shall apply:

1.

in any year advance use of a portion of the quantitative restriction established for the following year is authorised for each category of products up to 5 % of the quantitative restriction for the current year.

Amounts delivered in advance shall be deducted from the corresponding quantitative restrictions established for the following year;

2.

carryover to the corresponding quantitative restriction for the following year of the amounts not used during any year is authorised for each category of products up to 10 % of the quantitative restriction for the current year;

3.

transfers in respect of categories in group I shall not be made from any category except as follows:

transfers between categories 1, 2 and 3 may be made up to 12 % of the quantitative restriction for the category to which the transfer is made,

transfers between categories 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 may be made up to 12 % of the quantitative restriction for the category to which the transfer is made.

Transfers into any category in groups II and III may be made from any category or categories in groups I, II and III up to 12 % of the quantitative restriction for the category to which the transfer is made;

4.

the table of equivalence applicable to the transfers referred to is given in Annex I;

5.

the increase in any category of products resulting from the cumulative application of the provisions in paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 during a year shall not exceed 17 %;

6.

prior notification shall be given by the Ministry of International Economic Relations of Serbia in the event of recourse to the provisions of paragraphs 1, 2 and 3, at least 15 days in advance.

Article 15

The annual growth rate for the quantitative restrictions which may be introduced as provided for by this Agreement for the products covered by it shall be fixed by agreement between the Parties in accordance with the consultation procedures established in Article 8.

Article 16

1.   The Ministry of International Economic Relations of Serbia shall supply the Commission of the European Communities with precise statistical information on all export licences issued for categories of textile products subject to the quantitative restrictions established under this Agreement or to a double-checking system, expressed in quantities and in terms of value and broken down by Member States of the Community, as well as on all certificates issued by the Customs Administration of Serbia for products referred to in Article 12 and subject to Annex VI.

2.   The Community shall likewise transmit to the Ministry of International Economic Relations of Serbia precise statistical information on import authorisations issued by the Community authorities and import statistics for textile products.

3.   The information referred to above shall, for all categories of products, be forwarded before the end of the month following the month to which the statistics relate.

4.   Upon request by the Community, the Ministry of International Economic Relations of Serbia shall supply import statistics for all products covered by Annex I.

5.   If on the basis of the information exchanged it appears that there are significant discrepancies between the returns for exports and those for imports, consultations may be initiated in accordance with the procedure specified in Article 8.

6.   For the purpose of applying the provisions of this Agreement, the Community undertakes to provide the Ministry of International Economic Relations of Serbia before 15 April of each year with the preceding year's statistics on imports of all textile products covered by this Agreement, broken down by supplying country and Member State.

Article 17

1.   Serbia shall monitor its exports of products under restraint or surveillance into the Community. Should a sudden and prejudicial change in traditional trade flows arise, the Community will be entitled to request consultations in order to find a satisfactory solution to those problems. Such consultations shall be held within 15 working days of their being requested by the Community.

2.   Serbia shall endeavour to ensure that exports of textile products subject to quantitative restrictions, which may be established under this Agreement into the Community are spaced out as evenly as possible over the year, due account being taken in particular of seasonal factors.

Article 18

In the event of denunciation of this Agreement, the quantitative restrictions that may be established pursuant to it shall be reduced on a pro rata temporis basis unless the Parties decide otherwise by common agreement.

Article 19

The Parties undertake to refrain from discrimination in the allocation of export licences and import authorisations or documents referred to in Annexes V and VI.

TITLE III

OUTWARD PROCESS TRAFFIC (OPT)

Article 20

Re-imports into the Community, within the meaning of Article 11, shall be subject to this Agreement, unless the following special provisions provide otherwise.

1.

Re-imports into the Community referred to in Article 11 may be made subject to specific quantitative restrictions following consultations in accordance with the procedures set out in Article 8, provided the products concerned are subject to quantitative restrictions pursuant to this Agreement, to a double-checking system or to surveillance measures.

2.

Having regard to the interests of both Parties, the Community may at its discretion, or in response to a request under Article 8:

(a)

examine the possibility of transferring from one category to another, using in advance or carrying over from one year to the next, portions of specific quantitative restrictions;

(b)

consider the possibility of increasing specific quantitative restrictions.

However, the Community may apply automatically the flexibility rules set out in paragraph 2 within the following restrictions:

transfers between categories may not exceed 25 % of the quantity set for the category to which the transfer is made;

carry-over of a specific quantitative restriction from one year to the next may not exceed 13,5 % of the quantity set for the year of actual utilisation;

(c)

advance use of specific quantitative restrictions from one year to another may not exceed 7,5 % of the quantity set for the year of actual utilisation.

4.

The Community shall inform Serbia of any measures taken pursuant to the preceding paragraphs.

5.

The competent authorities in the Community shall debit the specific quantitative restrictions referred to in paragraph 1 at the time of issue of the prior authorisation required by the relevant Community legislation which governs economic outward processing arrangements. A specific quantitative restriction shall be debited for the year in which a prior authorisation is issued.

6.

A certificate of origin made out by the organisations authorised to do so under the law of Serbia shall be issued, in accordance with Annex V, for all products covered by this Title. This certificate shall bear a reference to the prior authorisation mentioned in paragraph 5 as evidence that the processing operation it describes has been carried out in Serbia.

ANNEX I

TEXTILE PRODUCTS REFERRED TO IN ARTICLE 1

1.

Without prejudice to the rules for the interpretation of the combined nomenclature, the wording of the description of goods is considered to be of indicative value only, since the products covered by each category are determined, within this Annex, by CN codes. Where there is an ‘ex’ symbol in front of a CN code, the products covered in each category are determined by the scope of the CN code and by that of the corresponding description.

2.

When the constitutive material of the products of categories 1 to 114 is not specifically mentioned, these products are to be taken to be made exclusively of wool or of fine hair, of cotton or of man-made fibres.

3.

Garments which are not recognisable as being garments for men or boys or as being garments for women or girls are classified with the latter.

4.

Where the expression ‘babies’ garments' is used, this is meant to cover garments up to and including commercial size 86.

ANNEX III

AGREED MINUTE ON MARKET ACCESS

The Parties recorded their understanding that non-tariff barriers related to all forms of hindrance to trade in the sector are not to be applied by either of the Parties. The Parties agree these non-tariff barriers include but are not limited to matters such as:

any additional customs duties on the import or sale of products of Community or Serbian origin in excess of those set out in this Agreement, or any fees and charges in connection with importation or exportation in excess of the approximate cost of services rendered,

any taxes which are higher than any such taxes imposed on the production or sale of equivalent domestic goods,

technical regulations or standards, or conformity assessment or certification rules, procedures or practices going beyond the purposes for which they are required,

any further barriers and controls within the territory of each Party hampering the free movement of goods after customs clearance and their release into free circulation,

any indicative values resulting in effective application of minimum prices or arbitrary and fictitious prices or any customs valuation rules, procedures or practices giving rise to barriers to trade,

rules, procedures or practices for pre-shipment inspection that are discriminatory, non-transparent, excessively lengthy or burdensome, and the imposition of customs controls for the clearance of goods to shipments that have already been subject of pre-shipment inspection,

excessively burdensome, costly or arbitrary rules, procedures or practices concerning the certification of the origin of products or requiring direct shipment of goods from the country of origin to the country of destination,

any non-automatic, discretionary or other licensing requirements, rules, procedures or practices imposing disproportionate burdens or having restrictive effects on imports. In particular application for automatic licenses submitted in an appropriate and complete form should be approved immediately on receipt, to the extent administratively feasible, but within a maximum of 10 working days,

requirements or practices concerning marking, labelling, the description of composition of the product or the description of the manufacturing of products which, either in their formulation or in their application, are in any form discriminatory as compared with domestic products and no more trade restrictive than necessary to fulfil a legitimate objective,

unduly long customs clearance delays or excessively burdensome, non-transparent or costly customs procedures, including inspection requirements, which have an unnecessary restrictive effect on imports,

subsidies causing injury to the textiles and clothing industry of the other Party.

In order to facilitate legitimate trade, notwithstanding the need of effective control, the Parties undertake to:

cooperate and exchange information on all issues concerning customs legislation and procedures, and in particular to deal promptly with problems faced by operators arising from measures covered by this Agreement,

provide effective, non-discriminatory and prompt procedures enabling the right of appeal against customs and other agency administrative actions, ruling and decisions affecting import or export of goods,

establish an appropriate consultation mechanism between customs administrations and traders on customs regulations and procedures,

publish, as far as possible through electronic means, and publicise new legislation and general procedures related to customs, as well as any modification, no later than the entry into force of any such legislation and procedures,

cooperate with a view to reaching a common approach to issues relating to customs valuation, in particular the elaboration of a ‘code of good practices’ in relation to working methods and operational aspects, the use of indicative or reference indices, appropriate documentation to certify the accuracy of the customs value and the use of securities. The Parties agree to open negotiations on the ‘code of good practices’ upon application of this Agreement and to conclude them as soon as possible.

1.   The competent authorities of the Community undertake to inform Serbia of any changes in the Combined Nomenclature (CN) before the date of their entry into force in the Community.

2.   The competent authorities of the Community undertake to inform the competent authorities of Serbia of any decisions relating to the classification of products subject to the present Agreement, within one month of their adoption at the latest. Such communication shall include:

(a)

a description of the products concerned;

(b)

the relevant category and the related CN codes;

(c)

the reasons which have led to the decision.

3.   Where a decision on classification results in a change of classification practice or a change of category of any product subject to this Agreement, the competent authorities of the Community shall provide 30 days' notice, from the date of the Community's communication, before the decision is put into effect.

Products shipped before the date of entry into effect of the decision shall remain subject to the earlier classification practice, provided that the goods in question are presented for importation into the Community within 60 days of that date.

4.   Where a Community decision on classification resulting in a change of classification practice or a change of categorisation of any product subject to this Agreement affects a category subject to quantitative restrictions, the Parties agree to enter into consultation in accordance with the procedures described in Article 8 of this Agreement with a view to honouring the obligation under the third subparagraph of Article 9(1) of this Agreement.

5.   In case of divergent opinions between Serbia and the competent Community authorities at the point of entry into the Community on the classification of products covered by this Agreement, classification shall provisionally be based on indications provided by the Community, pending consultations in accordance with Article 8 of this Agreement with a view to reaching agreement on definitive classification of the product concerned.

TITLE II

ORIGIN

Article 2

1.   Products originating in Serbia for export to the Community in accordance with the arrangements set out in this Agreement shall be accompanied by a certificate of origin issued by the Customs Administration of Serbia conforming to the model annexed to this Annex.

2.   The certificate of origin shall be certified by the Customs Administration of Serbia, if the products in question can be considered products originating in Serbia within the meaning of the relevant rules in force in the Community.

3.   However, the products in Group III may be imported into the Community in accordance with the arrangements established by this Agreement on production of a declaration by the exporter on the invoice or other commercial document relating to the products to the effect that the products in question originate in Serbia within the meaning of the relevant rules in force in the Community.

4.   The certificate of origin referred to in paragraph 1 shall not be required for imports of goods covered by a movement certificate EUR. 1 issued in accordance with the relevant provisions of the autonomous tariff regime granted to Serbia by the Community.

Article 3

The certificate of origin shall be issued only on application having been made in writing by the exporter or, under the exporter's responsibility, by his authorised representative. The Customs Administration of Serbia shall ensure that the certificate of origin is properly completed and for this purpose they shall call for any necessary documentary evidence or carry out any check which they consider appropriate.

Article 4

Where different criteria for determining origin are laid down for products falling within the same category, the certificates or declarations of origin must contain a sufficiently detailed description of the goods on the basis of which the certificate was issued or the declaration drawn up.

Article 5

The discovery of slight discrepancies between the statements made in the certificate of origin and those made in the documents produced to the Customs Administration of Serbia for the purpose of carrying out the formalities for importing the products shall not, ipso facto, cast doubt upon the statements in the certificate.

TITLE III

Article 7

1.   For products subject to quantitative restrictions under this Agreement the export licence shall conform to the Model 1 annexed to this Annex and it shall be valid for exports throughout the customs territory to which the Treaty establishing the European Community applies.

2.   Where quantitative restrictions have been introduced pursuant to this Agreement, each export licence must certify, inter alia, that the quantity of the product in question has been set off against the quantitative restriction established for the category of the products concerned and shall only cover one category of products subject to quantitative restrictions. It may be used for one or more consignments of the products in question.

3.   For products subject to a double-checking system without quantitative restrictions the export licence shall conform to the Model 2 annexed to this Annex. It shall only cover one category of products and may be used for one or more consignments of the products in question.

Article 8

The competent authorities of the Community must be informed immediately of the withdrawal or modification of any export licence already issued.

Article 10

The presentation of an export licence, in application of Article 12 of this Annex, shall be effected not later than 31 March of the year following that in which the goods covered by the licence have been shipped.

However, if the competent authorities of the Community are notified of the withdrawal or the cancellation of the export licence only after the importation of the products into the Community, the relevant quantities shall be set off against the quantitative restrictions established for the category and the quota year concerned.

Article 13

1.   If the competent authorities of the Community find that the total quantities covered by export licences issued by the Ministry of International Economic Relations of Serbia for a particular category in any year exceed the quantitative restriction that may be established in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement for that category, as may be modified by the relevant provisions thereof, the said authorities may suspend the further issue of import authorisations. In this event, the competent authorities of the Community shall immediately inform the Ministry for International Economic Relations of Serbia and the special consultation procedure set out in Article 8 of this Agreement shall be initiated forthwith.

2.   Exports of products of Serbian origin subject to quantitative restrictions or double-checking system and not covered by export licences of Serbia issued in accordance with the provisions of this Annex may be refused an import authorisation by the competent Community authorities.

However, without prejudice to Article 6 of this Agreement, if the import of such products is allowed into the Community by the competent authorities of the Community, the quantities involved shall not be set off against the appropriate quantitative restrictions established pursuant to this Agreement, without the express agreement of the Ministry for International Economic Relations of Serbia.

Article 18

In order to ensure the correct application of this Annex, the Parties offer mutual assistance for the checking of the authenticity and the accuracy of export licences and certificates of origin issued or of any declarations made within the terms of this Annex.

Article 19

Serbia shall transmit to the Community the names and addresses of the authorities competent to issue and verify the export licences and the certificates of origin, together with specimens of the stamps used by these authorities and specimen signatures of officials responsible for signing the export licences and the certificates of origin. Serbia shall also notify the Community of any change in this information.

Article 20

1.   Subsequent verification of certificates of origin or export licences shall be carried out at random, or whenever the competent Community authorities have reasonable doubt as to the authenticity of the certificate or licence or as to the accuracy of the information regarding the true origin of the products in question.

2.   In such cases, the competent authorities in the Community shall return the certificate of origin or the export licence or a copy thereof to the Ministry for International Economic Relations of Serbia in case of an export licence, or to the Customs Administration of Serbia, in case of a certificate of origin, giving, where appropriate, the reasons of form or substance which justify an enquiry. If the invoice has been submitted, such invoice or a copy thereof shall be attached to the certificate or to the licence or their copies. The authorities shall also forward any information that has been obtained suggesting that the particulars given on the said certificate or licence are inaccurate.

3.   The provisions of paragraph 1 shall also apply to subsequent verifications of the declarations of origin provided for in Article 2 of this Annex.

4.   The results of the subsequent verifications carried out in accordance with paragraphs 1 and 2 shall be communicated to the competent authorities of the Community within three months at the latest.

5.   Should such verifications reveal systematic irregularities in the use of declarations of origin, the Community may subject imports of the products in question to Article 2(1) of this Annex. For the purpose of subsequent verification of certificates of origin, copies of the certificates as well as any export documents referring to them shall be kept for at least two years by the issuing authority.

6.   Recourse to the random verification procedure specified in this Article must not constitute an obstacle to the release into free circulation of the products in question.

Article 21

1.   Where the verification procedure referred to in Article 20 of this Annex or where information available to the competent authorities of the Community or of Serbia indicates or appears to indicate that the provisions of this Agreement are being circumvented or infringed, the two Parties shall cooperate closely and with the appropriate urgency in order to prevent any such circumvention or infringement.

2.   To this end, the Ministry for International Economic Relations of Serbia in case of an export licence, or the Customs Administration of Serbia, in case of a certificate of origin, shall, on their own initiative or at the request of the Community, carry out appropriate inquiries, or arrange for such inquiries to be carried out, concerning operations which are, or appear to the Community to be, in circumvention or infringement of this Annex. Serbia shall communicate the results of these inquiries to the Community, including any other pertinent information enabling the cause of the circumvention or infringement, including the true origin of the goods to be determined.

3.   By agreement between the Parties, officials designated by the Community may be present at the inquiries referred to in paragraph 2.

4.   In pursuance of the cooperation referred to in paragraph 1, the competent authorities of the Parties shall exchange any information considered by either of them to be of use in preventing circumvention or infringement of the provisions of this Agreement. These exchanges may include information on the production of textile products in Serbia and on the trade in the type of products covered by this Agreement between Serbia and third countries, particularly where the Community has reasonable grounds to consider that the products in question may be in transit across the territory of Serbia prior to their importation into the Community. This information may include at the request of the Community copies of all available relevant documentation.

5.   Where the provisions of this Annex have not been applied correctly, the Community may take the measures set out in Article 6(3) of this Agreement, or any other appropriate measure.
