goods in a lot with a property value of no more than EUR 22, provided that the customs authorities agree, with the agreement of the economic operator, to carry out a risk analysis using the information used or provided by the economic operator; In any event, when different relations are established between one of the parties and a third country, consultations take place without delay, in accordance with paragraph 4, on the effects of such a divergence on the maintenance of the free movement of goods within the framework of this agreement. If such an agreement is adopted despite persistent disputes between the Community and another interested party, Part VII of this agreement applies. On 7 October 2013, the Council authorised the Commission to start negotiations with Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway to reach agreement on the future financial contributions of EEA-EFTA states to improving economic and social cohesion in the European Economic Area, given the continuing need to reduce economic and social disparities within the European Economic Area. 1 Formal negotiations began in January 2014. At the same time, regardless of the negotiations on the financial mechanism, a review of the EU-Iceland and EU-Norway trade protocols was launched on the basis of the revision clause of the additional protocols to the free trade agreements with Norway and Iceland. 2 bis) On the basis of the Memorandums of Understanding, recipient states submit specific programme proposals to EFTA states that evaluate and approve proposals and conclude grant agreements with recipient countries for each programme. At the express request of the EFTA States or the recipient state concerned, the European Commission is reviewing a specific programme proposal prior to its adoption in order to ensure compatibility with the European Union`s cohesion policy. The EEA Joint Committee makes decisions by mutual agreement between the Community on the one hand and the EFTA States, which speak with one voice on the other. However, under special conditions, including taking into account international agreements with third countries, the obligation to establish itself on the customs territory of a contracting party may be removed for certain categories of approved economic operators. In addition, each contracting party determines whether and under what conditions an airline or shipping company that is not established in its territory but has a regional office can obtain that status. The duly empowered officials of one of the contracting parties may, with the agreement of the other party and under the conditions set by the other party, receive information from the offices of the required authority or authority, on the violation of customs legislation which the applicant authority needs for the purposes of this protocol.
