ACP Sugar Group
on signature of the Sugar Protocol to T-XT8967 - Fourth ACP-EEC Convention (Lomé IV), a trade agreement of indefinite duration between the H-XF0662 - European Communities (EC) - currently F-XF2147 - European Union (EU) - and 19 of the F-XF0671 - African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP Group). Members are also signatory to the Agreement on Special Preferential Sugar (SPS). ACP sugar has been an integral part of the Sugar Régime of the European Communities since 1975. From 23 Jun 2000, the Sugar Protocol is annexed to Annex V of T-XT0080 - ACP-EU Partnership Agreement (Cotonou agreement).
Under the Sugar Protocol, while the European Community undertakes for an indefinite period to purchase and import, at guaranteed prices, specific quantities of raw or white cane sugar which originate in ACP states, the signatory ACP states undertake to deliver it. Under the Special Preferential Sugar agreement, if there is a deficit of raw sugar to meet the needs of EU sugar refiners, the European Community undertakes to open a special tariff quota for the import of raw cane sugar for refining originating in ACP states, on the basis of the needs determined by the European Commission.
