Letter from the Council of the European Union

Sir,

1. I have the honour to refer to the Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Republic of Argentina on trade in textile products initialled on 30 September 1986, as last amended and extended by the exchange of letters initialled on 18 December 1992.

2. In order to take into account the likely accession of the Republic of Austria, the Republic of Finland, and the Kingdom of Sweden to the European Union on 1 January 1995, the European Community considers that the following amendments should be made to the Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Republic of Argentina on trade in textile products:

2.1. Should the Uruguay Round Agreement on Textiles and Clothing become applicable in our relationships, as a consequence of the accession of the Republic of Argentina and the European Community to the WTO, Appendix I sets out the notional quantitative restrictions for the enlarged Community to be considered, for the purposes of the notification to the Textiles Monitoring Body, as those maintained by the enlarged Community and in force before the day of entry into force of the Uruguay Round Agreement on Textiles and Clothing, within the meaning of Article 2 of the Uruguay Round Agreement on Textiles and Clothing.

Should the Uruguay Round Agreement on Textiles and Clothing not become applicable in our relationships Annex II of the Agreement which sets out the quantitative restrictions for exports from the Republic of Argentina to the European Union is replaced for the period 1 January to 31 December 1995 by Appendix II to this letter.

2.2. Article 14, paragraph 2, subparagraph 2, second indent of Protocol A, Title III, Section II should be amended as follows:

"- two letters identifying the intended Member State of customs clearance as follows:

AT = Austria

BL = Benelux

DE = Federal Republic of Germany

DK = Denmark

EL = Greece

ES = Spain

FI = Finland

FR = France

GB = United Kingdom

IE = Ireland

IT = Italy

PT = Portugal

SE = Sweden"

2.3. The Annex of Protocol A, setting out the model of the certificate of origin is replaced by Appendix III to this letter.

2.4. The Annex to Protocol A setting out the model of the export licence is replaced by Appendix IV to this letter.

2.5. The Annex to Protocol B setting out the model of the certificate applicable to certain cottage industry and folklore products is replaced by Appendix V to this letter.

2.6. Should one or more acceding countries not join the European Union the adjustments calculated for this or these countries shall be deducted from the limits set out in the Appendices to this letter and the respective amendments mentioned under point 2.2 shall not enter into force.

2.7. Notwithstanding the modifications referred to under points 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5, during a transitional period that will end on 30 June 1995, the competent authorities of Argentina shall be authorized to continue issuing the forms that were in use in 1994.

2.8. Should inaccuracies appear in the trade figures used to establish the adjustments contained in Appendices I and II, technical revisions of these adjustments will be made following consultations and provided that the request for consultations is made not later than 28 February 1995.

3. I should be obliged if you could kindly confirm the acceptance of your Government of the foregoing. Should this be the case, this Agreement in the form of an exchange of letters shall enter into force on the first day of the month following the day on which the Parties have notified each other that the legal procedures necessary to this end have been completed. In the meantime, it shall be applied provisionally from 1 January 1995 on the conditions to be specified in an exchange of notes (see Appendix VI).
