Decision No.1/1999 of the Joint Committee of the Free Trade Agreement between the Republic of Latvia and the Republic of Poland on Amendments to the Protocol 3 on Rules of Origin to the Free Trade Agreement between the Republic of Latvia and the Republic of Poland

* The principality of Liechtenstein has a customs union with Switzerland, and is a Contracting Party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The Republic of Latvia (hereinafter called Latvia ) and Republic of Poland (hereinafter called Poland),

Having regard to the Free Trade Agreement between the Republic of Poland , of the one part, and the Republic of Latvia, of the other part, signed in Warsaw on 28 April 1997, and in particular Article 38 thereof and Article 36 of the Protocol 3,

Whereas within this Protocol 3 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, the Republic of Poland, the Republic of Hungary, the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, the Republic of Bulgaria, Romania, the Republic of Estonia, Republic of Lithuania, the Republic of Latvia, the Republic of Slovenia, the European Economic Area (hereinafter referred to as "the EEA"), Iceland, Norway and Switzerland;

Whereas it would seem advisable to introduce the system of flat rate charges in Article 15 of this Protocol 3 in connection with the prohibition of drawback and exemption from customs duty until 31 December 2000;

Whereas, in view of the particular arrangements on industrial products obtaining between the Community and Turkey, it would also be appropriate to extend the cumulation system to such products originating in Turkey;

Whereas to facilitate trade and simplify administrative tasks it is desirable to amend the wording of Articles 3, 4 and 12 of Protocol 3;

Whereas, 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,

HAVE DECIDED AS FOLLOWS:

Article 1

Protocol 3 concerning the definition of the concept of "originating products" and methods of administrative cooperation is hereby amended as follows:

1) Article 1(i) shall be replaced by :

"(i) "added value" shall be taken to be the ex-works price minus the customs value of each of the materials incorporated which originate in the other countries referred to in Article3 and 4 or, where the customs value is not known or cannot be ascertained, the first price verifiably paid for the products in Latvia or Poland.",

2) Articles 3 and 4 shall be replaced by the following:

" Article 3

Cumulation in Latvia

It shall not be necessary that such materials have undergone sufficient working or processing.

2. Where the working or processing carried out in Latvia does not go beyond the operations referred to in Article 7, the product obtained shall be considered as originating in Latvia only where the value added there is greater than the value of the materials used originating in any one of the other countries referred to in paragraph 1. If this is not so, the product obtained shall be considered as originating in the country which accounts for the highest value of originating materials used in the manufacture in Latvia.

3. Products, originating in one of the countries referred to in paragraph 1, which do not undergo any working or processing in Latvia, retain their origin if exported into one of these countries.

4. The cumulation provided for in this Article may only be applied to materials and products which have acquired originating status by an application of rules of origin identical to those given in this Protocol.

Article 4

Cumulation in Poland

If this is not so, the product obtained shall be considered as originating in the country which accounts for the highest value of originating materials used in the manufacture in Poland.

3. Products, originating in one of the countries referred to in paragraph 1, which do not undergo any working or processing in Poland, retain their origin if exported into one of these countries.
