(2) An equivalent goods authorisation must not be granted—

(ii)specified in a notice published by HMRC as an operation constituting a usual form of handling;

(d)in relation to a declaration of goods for an inward processing procedure where the export of the processed goods that would result from the processing under the procedure would constitute a breach of the requirement at regulation 22(3)(c);

(e)in relation to a declaration of goods for a storage procedure to be kept in a storage warehouse, an inward processing procedure, a temporary admission procedure or an authorised use procedure where, if the goods were declared for the free-circulation procedure—

(i)they would be subject to an additional amount of import duty by virtue of section 13, 14 or 15 of the Act; or

(ii)the importer of the goods would be required to give a guarantee under paragraph 15(5) of Schedule 4 to the Act;

(f)in relation to a declaration of goods for an outward processing procedure where, if the equivalent chargeable goods were declared for the free-circulation procedure—

(3) Paragraph (2)(a) does not apply where the applicant for authorisation is an authorised economic operator within the meaning given in section 22(2) of the Act unless, in the opinion of an HMRC officer, consideration is required of matters relating to the use of equivalent goods that were not considered at the time when the applicant was authorised as an authorised economic operator.

(4) A relevant non-transit Part 1 procedure authorisation may authorise equivalent goods to be stored together with other goods where—

(a)the equivalent goods can be identified by such method as HMRC may specify in the approval notification; or

(b)where it is not possible to identify the equivalent goods without incurring disproportionate cost, the approval notification specifies that it is a requirement of the procedure that the authorised person carries out accounting segregation in accordance with a notice made under regulation 44 (record keeping).

(5) It is a condition of an equivalent goods authorisation in relation to the declaration of goods for an inward processing procedure, an outward processing procedure or a storage procedure to be kept in a customs warehouse that—

(a)goods which are organic must not be replaced by goods which are not organic; and

(b)goods which are not organic must not be replaced by goods which are organic.
