If a Party considers that there is (or is a risk of) imbalance, it shall consult the other.
If, after 6 months of consultations, the Parties are unable to agree on appropriate measures to restore balance, the Party in deficit shall be entitled to take, without the agreement of the other Party, such measures, as it considers necessary.
Measures imposed by a Party under this Article may include the imposition of temporary additional requirements that must be met before its Competent Authority can agree to the grant of Approved Co-production status.
Temporary additional requirements shall apply only in respect of applications, which are:
for the Competent Authorities to give provisional approval for Approved Co-production status under Article 3, and made after the requirement comes into effect in accordance with paragraph (5) of this Article.
No temporary additional requirement may take effect before the Party imposing it:
has notified the other Party in writing of the requirement, and
a statement of the requirement, and
any changes to the guidance issued in accordance with Article 2, which may be required to give effect to it.
