X. Import of vehicles. Adjustment of the customs value. Price reduction pursuant to a contractual warranty. Time limit is invalid. Court of Justice

Judgment of the Court of Justice in the case X.

Article 145(2) of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2454/93, read in conjunction with Article 29(1) and (3) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92, must be interpreted as meaning that it applies in a case, such as that at issue in the main proceedings, where it is established that, at the time of acceptance of the declaration for entry to free circulation for specific goods, there was a manufacture-related risk that the goods might become defective in use, and in view of this the seller, pursuant to a contractual warranty towards the buyer, grants the latter a price reduction in the form of reimbursement of the costs incurred by the buyer in modifying the goods in order to exclude that risk. Article 145(3) of Regulation No 2454/93, as amended by Regulation No 444/2002, in so far as it provides for a time limit of 12 months from acceptance of the declaration for entry to free circulation of the goods, within which an adjustment of the price actually paid or payable must be made, is invalid. 

C-661/15
