Restrictions on movement of unattested third country hop cones

4.—(1) Where a person imports from a third country a consignment of hop cones falling within heading No. ex 12.06 of the Common Customs Tariff without producing to the Commissioners in respect of the consignment the attestation of equivalence referred to in Article 5(2) of Council Regulation (EEC) No. 1696/71, the Commissioners may require that person to give them a signed undertaking—

(a)that the consignment shall be moved forthwith to a place specified in the undertaking, being either a certification centre or a place for the time being approved by the appropriate Minister for the purposes of this regulation and notified by him to the Commissioners, and

(b)that no part of the consignment shall be moved from that place unless there has been issued in respect of that part the control attestation referred to in Article 4 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No. 3076/78.

(2) Where the Commissioners have required such an undertaking to be given in respect of any consignment, the consignment shall not be released from customs and excise charge unless the undertaking is given.
