This assessment is based on the previous reporting period, the import statistics, be submitted to the Customs Union, with a tariff line basis, expressed in cost and quantities developed by WTO country of origin. The Secretariat calculated the weighted average tariff rates and customs duties collected according to the method used for the assessment of tariff offers the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations.

However, it is agreed that this paragraph will be reviewed by the Council for trade in goods five years after the date of entry into force of the WTO agreement, to decide whether this criterion has worked satisfactorily in securing a redistribution of rights negotiations for the benefit of small and medium-sized exporting members. If this is not the case, will be considered for possible improvements, including adequate data availability in the event of adoption of a set of criteria, based on the ratio of exports affected by the export of the product concerned to all markets in a specific concession. 2. Where a Member State considers that it has a substantial interest in the supplier pursuant to paragraph 1, including his claim in writing with a statement reinforcing testimony must communicate to the Member State which proposed to correct or cancel a concession, and at the same time inform the Secretariat.

If a tariff concession is modified or canceled new products (i.e. products which are not available for the three-year trade statistics), the Member State agrees with prior rights on the tariff negotiations, where the products are or have been added, also shared a conversation priority for the concession. Essential and vital interests of the supplier and the calculation of compensation, inter alia, be taken into account in production and investment in the affected products in the exporting Member State, and export growth forecasts, as well as the production forecast of the importing Member.

Where a Member State considers that it agrees with the relevant supplier or the relevant prior right in accordance with paragraph 4, including his claim in writing with a statement reinforcing testimony must communicate to the Member State which proposed to correct or cancel the concession, and at the same time inform the Secretariat.

In any case, the Member State may require a higher amount of compensation for the benefit which could lead to the complete withdrawal of the concession. 7. any Member State which agrees with the fundamental interest of the supplier, either under the above paragraph 1 or paragraph 1 of Article XXVIII, in relation to the corrected or cancelled the concessions are given priority with respect to negotiations, compensatory concessions, unless the Member States concerned agree on another form of compensation. the 1994 General Agreement on tariffs and trade the Marrakesh Protocol, Member States shall, upon completion of the negotiations in the framework of GATT 1947, pursuant to the Ministerial Declaration on the Uruguay Round to agree on the following: 1. the annexed schedule of a Member State shall become a Schedule to GATT 1994 and applicable to that Member State on the day when it enter into force of the WTO agreement.

Subsidies are granted in accordance with paragraph 1, include both State institutions and budget expenditure, and unrealised income. 3. Is included in the support granted to the national and sub-national level. 4. Specific agricultural levies or fees paid by producers, are deducted from the AMS. 5. SEE, which is calculated by following the instructions below, constitute the base level of domestic support-reduction commitments entered into. 6. for each agricultural product is specific AMS, expressed in total monetary value terms. 7. SEE the basic agricultural products are calculated, with the calculation that corresponds to the position of maximum immediate realisation. Measures in the case of processors are included to the extent that they benefit the producers of primary agricultural products. 8. Market price support: market price support is calculated using the difference between the fixed price and the external base of the controlled price used, multiplied by the volume of production, which corresponds to the amount of the controlled price of the award. Payments from the budget are made such difference, for example, purchase or storage costs, are not included. 9. the fixed outer base price is determined on the basis of the 1986 to 1988 figures, and is usually the average f.o.b. unit value for the basic agricultural products in the country, which has the status of the exporting country and the average c.i.f. unit value for the basic agricultural products in countries, which have the status of importing the base period. Fixed base price can be amended according to the quality indicators. 10.

Are included in the national and sub-national level. 2. the amount of the subsidy equivalent to that laid down in paragraph 1 shall be calculated for all agricultural products in such a condition that it corresponds to the maximum for immediate distribution of subsidised market prices and calculation of the AMS components is not possible. The following basic products equivalent to the market price subsidy is determined by the controlled price and the specific production or from budgetary expenditure intended for producer prices. 3. where basic agricultural products in accordance with paragraph 1, subject to the direct payment without deductions or other specific products covered by the subsidy reduction, equivalent to the amount of the subsidy determination in respect of those measures are based on calculations performed similar to the corresponding AMS components (listed in annex 3 of 10.-13.) 4. the equivalent measurements of support is calculated from the amount of subsidies to agricultural products, with the calculation that corresponds to the position of maximum up-front sales prices. Measures in the case of processors are included so far to benefit the producers of primary agricultural products. Specific agricultural levies or fees paid by producers, reducing the amount of the subsidy equivalent in the appropriate amount.   5.
