ANNEX 2
PROTOCOL 2
Concerning certain processed agricultural products
Article 1
General principles
1.   The provisions of the Agreement shall apply to products listed in Tables I and II unless otherwise specified in this Protocol.
2.   In particular, with respect to these products, the Contracting Parties may not levy customs duties on imports or charges having equivalent effect, including agricultural components, or grant export refunds or any refund, remission or non-payment, partial or complete, of customs duties or charges having an equivalent effect.
3.   The provisions of this Protocol shall likewise apply to the Principality of Liechtenstein until the application of Protocol 3 to the Agreement on the European Economic Area to the Principality of Liechtenstein.
Article 2
Application of price compensation measures
1.   In order to take account of differences in the cost of the agricultural raw materials used in the manufacture of the products specified in Table I, the Agreement does not preclude the application of price compensation measures to these products; that is the levying of agricultural components upon import and the granting of export refunds or the granting of refunds, remissions or non-payments, partial or complete of customs duties or charges having an equivalent effect.
2.   If a Contracting Party applies internal measures, which reduce the price of raw materials to processing industries, these measures shall be taken into account in the calculation of the price compensation amounts.
Article 3
Price compensation measures on imports
1.   Switzerland's basic amounts for the agricultural raw materials taken into consideration in calculating the agricultural components on imports shall neither exceed the difference between the Swiss domestic reference price and the Community's domestic reference price for the respective agricultural raw material nor the Swiss import duty actually applied for the agricultural raw material when imported as such.
2.   The Swiss import regime for products specified in Table I is laid down in Table IV.
3.   If the Swiss domestic reference price is lower than the Community's domestic reference price, the Community may introduce the price compensation measures as laid down in Article 2 that is the levying of agricultural components upon import, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1460/96 as subsequently amended.
Article 4
Price compensation measures on exports
1.   The Swiss export refunds or refunds, remissions or non-payments, partial or complete, of customs duties or charges having an equivalent effect for exports to the Community for products listed in Table I shall not exceed the difference between the Swiss domestic reference price and the Community's domestic reference price for the agricultural raw materials used in the manufacture of these products multiplied by the quantities actually used. If the Swiss domestic reference price is equal or lower than the Community's domestic reference price, the Swiss export refund or refund, remission or non-payment, partial or complete, of customs duties or charges having an equivalent effect shall be zero.
2.   If the Swiss domestic reference price is lower than the Community's domestic reference price, the Community may introduce the price compensation measures as laid down in Article 2 that is the granting of export refunds, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000 as subsequently amended, or the granting of refunds, remissions or non-payments, partial or complete of customs duties or charges having an equivalent effect.
3.   For sugar (HS headings 1701, 1702 and 1703) used in the manufacture of products listed in Table I and Table II the Contracting Parties may not grant any export refunds or any refund, remission or non-payment, partial or complete, of customs duties or charges having an equivalent effect.
Article 5
Reference prices
1.   The Community and Swiss domestic reference prices for agricultural raw materials mentioned in Articles 3 and 4 are listed in Table III.
2.   The Contracting Parties shall periodically, at least once every year, provide to the Joint Committee the domestic reference prices of all raw materials for which price compensation measures are applied. The domestic reference prices, which are provided, shall reflect the actual price situation in the territory of the Contracting Party. They shall be the prices normally paid at the wholesale or the manufacturing stage by processing industries. If an agricultural raw material is available to the processing industry, or to a part of it, at a price lower than the one otherwise ruling on the domestic market, the domestic reference prices provided shall be adjusted accordingly.
3.   The Joint Committee shall fix the domestic reference prices and the price differences, for agricultural raw materials listed in Table III on the basis of the information provided by the services of the European Commission and the Swiss Federal Administration. If necessary for the preservation of the relative preferential margins, the basic amounts of the agricultural raw materials listed in Table IV shall be adapted.
4.   The Joint Committee shall review the domestic prices for agricultural raw materials mentioned in Articles 3 and 4 that are listed in Table III prior to the application of this Protocol.
Article 6
Special provision on administrative cooperation
Special provisions on administrative cooperation are laid down in the Appendix to this Protocol.

Appendix to Protocol 2
Provisions on administrative cooperation

1.

The Contracting Parties agree that administrative cooperation is essential for the implementation and the control of the preferential treatment granted under this Protocol and underline their commitment to combat irregularities and fraud in customs and related matters.

2.

Where a Contracting Party has made a finding, on the basis of objective information, of a failure to provide administrative cooperation and/or of irregularities or fraud under this Protocol, the Contracting Party concerned may temporarily suspend the relevant preferential treatment of the product(s) concerned in accordance with this Annex.

3.

For the purpose of this Appendix a failure to provide administrative cooperation shall mean, inter alia:

(a)

a repeated failure to respect the obligations to verify the originating status of the product(s) concerned;

(b)

a repeated refusal or undue delay in carrying out and/or communicating the results of subsequent verification of the proof of origin;

(c)

a repeated refusal or undue delay in obtaining authorisation to conduct administrative cooperation missions to verify the authenticity of documents or accuracy of information relevant to the granting of the preferential treatment in question.
For the purpose of this Appendix a finding of irregularities or fraud may be made, inter alia, where there is a rapid increase, without satisfactory explanation, in imports of goods exceeding the usual level of production and export capacity of the other Contracting Party that is linked to objective information concerning irregularities or fraud.

4.

The application of a temporary suspension shall be subject to the following conditions:

(a)

the Contracting Party which has made a finding, on the basis of objective information, of a failure to provide administrative cooperation and/or of irregularities or fraud in customs and related matters shall without undue delay notify the Joint Committee of its finding together with the objective information and enter into consultations within the Joint Committee, on the basis of all relevant information and objective findings, with a view to reaching a solution acceptable to both Contracting Parties;

(b)

where the Contracting Parties have entered into consultations within the Joint Committee as above and have failed to agree on an acceptable solution within three months following the notification, the Contracting Party concerned may temporarily suspend the relevant preferential treatment of the product(s) concerned. A temporary suspension shall be notified to the Joint Committee without undue delay;

(c)

temporary suspensions under this Appendix shall be limited to that necessary to protect the financial interests of the Contracting Party concerned. They shall not exceed a period of six months, which may be renewed. Temporary suspensions shall be notified immediately after their adoption to the Joint Committee. They shall be subject to periodic consultations within the Joint Committee in particular with a view to their termination as soon as the conditions for their application are no longer given;

5.

At the same time as the notification to the Joint Committee under paragraph 4(a) of this Appendix, the Contracting Party concerned should publish a notice to importers in its Official Journal. The notice to importers should indicate for the product concerned that there is a finding, on the basis of objective information, of a failure to provide administrative cooperation and/or of irregularities or fraud.
