Decision No.1/1999 Of The Joint Committee Of The Free Trade Agreement Between The Republic Of Latvia And The Czech Republic


Having regard to the Free Trade Agreement between the Republic of Latvia and the Czech Republic, signed in Riga on 15 April 1996 and Protocol 3 concerning the definition of the concept of "originating products" and methods of administrative co-operation to this Agreement;

Having in mind provisions of Articles 35, 36 and 38 of the Free Trade Agreement between the Republic of Latvia and the Czech Republic;

Whereas the definition of the term "originating products" needs to be amended to ensure the proper operation of the extended system of cumulation which permits the use of materials originating in the European Community, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, Bulgaria, Romania, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Slovenia, Turkey, the European Economic Area (hereinafter referred to as the EEA), Iceland, Norway and Switzerland;

Whereas it would seem advisable to revise the Articles concerning the amounts in order to fully take into consideration the entry into force of the euro;

Whereas, to take account of changes in processing techniques and shortages of certain raw materials, some corrections must be made to the list of working and processing requirements which non-originating materials have to fulfil to qualify for originating status,

Amounts expressed in euro

1. Amounts in the national currency of the exporting Party equivalent to the amounts expressed in euro shall be fixed by the exporting Party and communicated to the importing Party.

2. When the amounts exceed the corresponding amounts fixed by the importing Party, the latter shall accept them if the products are invoiced in the currency of the exporting country. When the products are invoiced in the currency of another Party referred to in Article 4, the importing Party shall recognise the amount notified by the country concerned.

3. The amounts to be used in any given national currency shall be the equivalent in that national currency of the amounts expressed in euro as at the first working day of October 1999.

4. The amounts expressed in euro and their equivalents in the national currencies of a Party shall be reviewed by the Joint Committee at the request of a Party.
