WHEREAS IT IS MOREOVER NECESSARY TO PROVIDE ANOTHER METHOD OF CALCULATING THE REFUND WHICH THE PARTY CONCERNED MAY ASK TO BE ADOPTED , WHEN HE CANNOT MAKE THE REQUIRED DECLARATION OR WHEN THE COMPETENT AUTHORITIES ARE UNABLE FOR WANT OF SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE TO ACCEPT HIS DECLARATION ; WHEREAS SUCH A METHOD , RESTRICTED TO CERTAIN GOODS EXPORTED UNALTERED , MAY BE BASED ON A CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF THE GOODS AND APPLIED IN ACCORDANCE WITH A TABLE DRAWN UP FOR THIS PURPOSE ;

WHEREAS THERE SHOULD BE UNIFORM APPLICATION THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY OF THE PROVISIONS RELATING TO THE GRANTING OF REFUNDS FOR GOODS NOT COVERED BY ANNEX II TO THE TREATY ; WHEREAS TO THIS END EACH MEMBER STATE SHOULD INFORM THE OTHER MEMBER STATES , THROUGH THE COMMISSION , OF THE CONTROLS IT APPLIES IN ITS TERRITORY FOR THE VARIOUS TYPES OF GOODS EXPORTED ;
