THE JOINT COMMITTEE,

Having regard to the Free Trade Agreement between the Republic of Estonia and the Republic of Latvia and the Republic of Lithuania, signed on September 13, 1993 (hereinafter referred to as Agreement); and the amendments to Protocol A of this Agreement, signed on February 6, 1997 by the Resolution of the Joint Committee No. 1/1997 and as well as amendments to Protocol A of this Agreement signed on December 22, 1998 by the Resolution of the Joint Committee No. 1/1998 and the amendments signed on December 25, 1999 by the Resolution of the Joint Committee No. 1/1999 and making reference to Article 24 of the this Agreement

Whereas some technical amendments are proposed in order to correct the text;

Whereas the list of insufficient working and processing needs to be amended to ensure the proper interpretation and to take account of the need to include some operations not covered previously by this list;

Whereas the provisions for the temporary use of flat rates in cases where drawback is prohibited or exemptions from customs duties are granted need to be prolonged until 31 December 2001;

Whereas the need has arisen to provide for a system of accounting segregation of originating and non- originating materials, subject to authorisation granted by customs authorities;

Whereas the provisions concerning the amounts expressed in Euro need to be revised in order to clarify the procedure and to provide greater stability for the level of the amounts in internal currencies;

Article 1

Protocol A on the definition of the concept of 'originating products' and methods of administrative cooperation is hereby amended as follows:

' Article 20a

Accounting segregation

1. Where considerable cost or material difficulties arise in keeping separate stocks of originating and non-originating materials which are identical and interchangeable, the customs authorities may, at the written request of those concerned, authorise the so-called "accounting segregation" method to be used for managing such stocks.

2. This method must be able to ensure that, for a specific reference-period, the number of products obtained which could be considered as "originating" is the same as that which would have been obtained if there had been physical segregation of the stocks.

3. The customs authorities may grant such authorisation, subject to any conditions deemed appropriate.

4. This method is recorded and applied on the basis of the general accounting principles applicable in the country where the product was manufactured.

5. The beneficiary of this facilitation may issue or apply for proofs of origin, as the case may be, for the quantity of products which may be considered as originating. At the request of the customs authorities, the beneficiary shall provide a statement of how the quantities have been managed.

6. The customs authorities shall monitor the use made of the authorisation and may withdraw it at any time whenever the beneficiary makes improper use of the authorisation in any manner whatsoever or fails to fulfil any of the other conditions laid down in this Protocol.

5. In Article 22, paragraph 1, first sentence, the following shall be inserted after 'exporter':

'hereinafter referred to as "approved exporter",'

6. Article 30 shall be replaced by:

' Article 30

Amounts expressed in euro

1. For the application of the provisions of Article 21(1)(b) and Article 26(3) in cases where products are invoiced in a currency other than euro, amounts in the national currencies of the countries referred to in Articles 4 equivalent to the amounts expressed in euro shall be fixed annually by each of the countries concerned.

2. A consignment shall benefit from the provisions of Article 21(1)(b) or Article 26(3) by reference to the currency in which the invoice is drawn up, according to the amount fixed by the country concerned.

3. The amounts to be used in any given national currency shall be the equivalent in that currency of the amounts expressed in euro as at the first working day of October and shall apply from 1 January the following year. The Parties shall be notified of the relevant amounts.

4. A country may round up or down the amount resulting from the conversion into its national currency of an amount expressed in euro. The rounded-off amount may not differ from the amount resulting from the conversion by more than 5 per cent. A country may retain unchanged its national currency equivalent of an amount expressed in euro if, at the time of the annual adjustment provided for in paragraph 3, the conversion of that amount, prior to any rounding-off, results in an increase of less that 15 per cent in the national currency equivalent. The national currency equivalent may be retained unchanged if the conversion would result in a decrease in that equivalent value.

5. The amounts expressed in euro shall be reviewed by the Joint Committee at the request of the State Parties. When carrying out this review, the Joint Committee shall consider the desirability of preserving the effects of the limits concerned in real terms. For this purpose, it may decide to modify the amounts expressed in euro.'
