(6) Between formal reviews, contracts should be distributed in such a way as to ensure that each formal review does not substantially deviate from the ideal value of each Member State's cumulative overall coefficient of return. For each formal review, the Council may redefine the lower limit of the cumulative reflux coefficient for the subsequent section, but it shall never be less than 0.8.

6. The distribution of contracts between formal reviews of the situation should be such that, at the time of each formal review, the cumulative overall return coefficient of each Member State does not substantially deviate from the ideal value. At the time of each formal review, the Council may revise the lower limit for the cumulative return coefficient for the subsequent period, provided that it shall never be lower than 0.8.

6. Pour chaque État membre, la répartition géographique des contrats entre deux examen formels de la situation doit être telle que, lors de chaque examen formula, le coefficient de retour global cumulé ne s' écarte pas sensiblement de la valeur idéale. Lors de chaque examen formula, le Conseil peut réviser la limite inférieure du coefficient de retour cumulé applicable à la période suivante, étant entendu qu' elle ne doit jamais descendre au-dessous de 0,8.

(7) Separate assessments of the reflux coefficient shall be carried out for various categories of contracts to be fixed by the Council, in particular contracts for advanced research and development and contracts for project-related technology; and notified to the Council.

"

" 1. If, at one of the interim reviews a trend is identified, that the overall return coefficient of any Member State is likely to be below the lower limit defined according to Article IV.6, the Director General shall submit to the Council proposals designed to redress the situation within one year. These proposals shall keep within the Agency's rules governing the placing of contracts.
