SUPPLEMENTARY AGREEMENT TO THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF ITALY CONCERNING THE SALE IN ITALY OF WASTE MATERIAL AND SCRAP BELONGING TO THE ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FORCE, SIGNED IN ROME ON THE 18th OF DECEMBER 1961
The Government of Canada and the Government of the Republic of Italy:
Having examined the desirability of expanding the scope of the Italo-Canadian scrap disposal Agreement of December 18th, 1961 to include the disposal of surplus material by the Royal Canadian Air Force in Italy,
Have agreed as follows:
The Royal Canadian Air Force will inform the Italian Government of the quality, quantity, value, location and proposed point of sale of surplus material which it wishes to sell to individuals, firms or other entities authorized to transact business in Italy.
The Italian Government will consider on a case by case basis the desirability of authorizing the importation of this material in whole or in part.
The Italian Government will have the option of purchasing, at prices to be agreed, surplus material put up for sale in Italy by the Royal Canadian Air Force. If the Italian Government does not exercise this option within 60 days of the date of notification by the RCAF that the material is for sale, the Royal Canadian Air Force will have the right to sell the material to individuals, firms or other entities in the manner envisaged by this agreement.
On request, the Italian Air Force will act as agent for the Royal Canadian Air Force in the sale of surplus material in Italy. These sales will be carried out in accordance with the principles which normally govern the sale of goods belonging to the Italian Government. Detailed arrangements as necessary will be agreed upon by the Italian Air Force and the Royal Canadian Air Force.
The importation of surplus material will remain subject to the issuance of an import license which must be requested from the Italian Government in each case by the purchaser. The Royal Canadian Air Force will not deliver material until the purchaser produces evidence that he has satisfied Italian Customs regulations.
The Royal Canadian Air Force may sell its surplus material directly to foreign individuals, firms or other entities without restriction as to type, quantity or value when the material is destined for export. However, individuals firms, or other entities authorized to conduct business in Italy who purchase such material for export will require authorization of the Italian Government. It is understood that if the Italian Government does not raise any objection to the sale for export within 30 days after the submission of the request by the Royal Canadian Air Force, authorization for the sale will be considered to have been automatically granted.
Export sales carried out on the basis of this agreement will be subject to existing Italian Customs procedures but the material involved in such sales will not be subject to Italian Customs duties.
It is understood that the lire revenue resulting from the sale of surplus material in Italy by the Royal Canadian Air Force may be used by the Canadian Government for any expenditure in Italy or be converted into Canadian dollars for transfer to Canada, according to the regulations in force.
This Agreement is supplementary to the Agreement on Scrap Disposal of December 18th, 1961, shall come into force upon signature and will expire on the same date as that agreement.
DONE in Rome, in duplicate, in the English and the Italian languages, both texts being of equal authenticity, on this 18th day of September, 1963.
