Proofs of origin and administrative cooperation

1.   Proofs of origin properly issued by either Egypt or a new Member State under preferential agreements or autonomous arrangements applied between them shall be accepted in the respective countries under this Protocol, provided that:

(a)

the acquisition of such origin confers preferential tariff treatment on the basis of either the preferential tariff measures contained in the EU-Egypt Agreement or in the Community System of Generalised Preferences;

(b)

the proof of origin and the transport documents were issued no later than the day before the date of accession;

(c)

the proof of origin is submitted to the customs authorities within a period of four months from the date of accession.

Where goods were declared for importation in either Egypt or a new Member State, prior to the date of accession, under preferential agreements or autonomous arrangements applied between Egypt and that new Member State at that time, proof of origin issued retrospectively under those agreements or arrangements may also be accepted provided that it is submitted to the customs authorities within a period of four months from the date of accession.

2.   Egypt and the new Member States are authorised to retain the authorisations with which the status of ‘approved exporters’ has been granted under preferential agreements or autonomous arrangements applied between them, provided that:

(a)

such a provision is also provided for in the agreement concluded prior to the date of accession between Egypt and the Community; and

(b)

the approved exporter applies the rules of origin in force under that agreement.

These authorisations shall be replaced, no later than one year after the date of accession, by new authorisations issued under the conditions of the Agreement.

3.   Requests for subsequent verification of proof of origin issued under the preferential agreements or autonomous arrangements referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 shall be accepted by the competent customs authorities of either Egypt or the new 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.

Article 7

Goods in transit

1.   The provisions of the Agreement may be applied to goods exported from either Egypt to one of the new Member States or from one of the new Member States to Egypt, which comply with the provisions of Protocol 4 and which on the date of accession are either en route or in temporary storage, in a customs warehouse or in a free zone in Egypt or in that new Member State.

2.   Preferential treatment may 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 proof of origin issued retrospectively by the customs authorities of the exporting country.

GENERAL AND FINAL PROVISIONS

The Arab Republic of Egypt undertakes that it shall neither make any claim, request or referral nor modify or withdraw any concession pursuant to GATT 1994 Articles XXIV.6 and XXVIII in relation to this enlargement of the Community.

Article 9
