Background. -From 1996-2002 BT exported frozen chicken cuts treated with salt to EC -EEC was bound to its tariff schedule to not apply a duty ate exceeding 15.4% to “meat and edible meat offal, salted, in brine, dried or smoked.”-under tariff item. -In 2002, new regulations emerged in the EC citing a new classification of imported meats under tariff item 02.10. -Based on the new rules, the bound rate in tariff item 02.10 would apply only where salt had been added to meat for the purpose of long-term preservation. -Due to these new rules, those same chicken cuts treated with salt exported by BT would fall under a different tariff item 02.07, “fresh, chilled or frozen poultry.” which has a higher bound rate than the initial classification item 02.10 0f 102.4 euros per kilogram i.e. an ad valorem rate pf between 40 and 60 %. -Hence, European Custom Authorities were obliged to apply the higher tariff rate since the Frozen chicken cuts treated with salt were not salted for the purpose for long-term preservation.

Dasreef Pty Ltd V Hawchar

...Introduction The High Court’s decision in Dasreef Pty Ltd v Hawchar [2011] HCA 21 has been significant as the threshold requirements for the admissibility of expert evidence are clarified (French 2012). This essay will first discuss the facts of the case, followed by the technical requirements and perceived difficulties related to expert evidence identified by the court in this case. Facts Mr Hawchar, the respondent claimed damages from his employer, Dasreef Pty Ltd, the appellant as he was diagnosed with silicosis allegedly caused by the unsafe working environment. An expert, Dr Basden was retained to provide a report centering on the foreseeability of the alleged injury claimed by Mr Hawchar and procedures that Dasreef could take in reducing the risk of injury. The case originated in the Dust Diseases Tribunal where the judge relied on the estimate of the expert evidence in calculating the levels of silica Mr Hawchar was exposed to. This led to a finding that the level of exposure exceeded the applicable standard and was appealed by Dasreef before the Court of Appeal as to the admissibility of the expert’s report. The Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal on the basis that the estimate provided in the report was drawn from the expert’s experience, and thus admissible. The admissibility issue of the expert evidence was then brought to the High Court before the judges, French CJ, Gummow, Hayne, Crennan, Kiefel and Bell JJ with Justice Heydon dissented from the majority...

Case Study Rochem Ltd

... the Chemling’s machine total cost per unit is by £7.17 higher. 2. Evaluating the two alternative technologies according to their features and the long term valuation, the new Chemling is manual testing unlike AFU that is automatically testing. Also, the delivery for the AFU is immediate and tree months for the Chemling. So the AFU is more feasible. The AFU technology is how all future similar technologies will be. By the acceptability of the technology the company will improve the competitiveness and will give a return on investment as well as adding to the resource base. In the end, any manufacturing operation has to bear in mind that, the unit cost of the product is a critical factor in measuring performance. In the case of the Rochem Ltd, the Chemling’s machine total cost per unit is by £7.17 higher. So, as a long term investment the AFU is more profitable. 3. The recommendation for the company is to buy the AFU because: I. Of the immediate delivery, so the new production will be directly available. II. The testing is automatically. III. The production is higher. IV. The production cost is lower. V. The AFU is a modernized machine and the company will be able to adapt in the new technologies and market requirements. Another solution is to fix the old Chemling machine, in order to save money, time and the workers will be satisfied. Replacing the older machine with a substantially better one would entail a much greater cost more than £590,000 and......
