During its first meeting, the Working Group is to adopt a decision on the forms to be used as certificates for the import of wine products originating in Japan into the EU and the modalities concerning the implementation of self-certification. The purpose of the decision is to allow the effective implementation of the agreement and thus simplify the import of wine products originating in Japan.
