FOREIGN RELATIONS, 1934, VOLUME V
  Unless otherwise provided under constitutional requirements, no
administrative ruling by the United States of America or the Repub-
lic of Colombia effecting advances in duties or charges applicable
under an established and uniform practice to imports, from the terri-
tory of the other country, or imposing any new requirement with
respect to such importations, shall be effective retroactively or with
respect to articles either entered for or withdrawn for consumption
prior to the expiration of thirty days after the date of publication of
notice of such ruling in the usual official manner. The provisions of
this paragraph do not apply to administrative orders imposing anti-
dumping duties, or relating to sanitation or public safety, or giving
effect to judicial decisions or decisions of customs courts.
                           ARTICLE VI
  It is agreed that the United States of America and the Republic of
Colombia will grant each other unconditional and unrestricted most-
favored-nation treatment in all matters concerning customs duties and
subsidiary charges of every kind and in the method of levying duties,
and, further, in all matters concerning the rules, formalities and
charges imposed in connection with the clearing of goods through
the customs.
  Accordingly, natural or manufactured products having their origin
in the United States of America or the Republic of Colombia shall in
no case be subject, in the other country in regard to the matters re-
ferred to above, to any duties, taxes or charges other or higher, or to
any rules or formalities other or more burdensome, than those to which
the like products of any third country are or may hereafter be sub-
ject.
  Similarly, natural or manufactured products exported from the ter-
ritory of the United States of America or the Republic of Colombia
and consigned to the territory of the other country shall in no case be
subject with respect to exportation and in regard to the above-men-
tioned matters, to any duties, taxes or charges other or higher, or to
any rules or formalities other or more burdensome, than those to which
the like products when consigned to the territory of any third country
are or may hereafter be subject.
  Any advantage, favor, privilege or immunity which has been or may
hereafter be granted by the United States of America or the Republic
of Colombia in regard to the above-mentioned matters, to a natural
or manufactured product originating in any third country or con-
signed to the territory of any third country shall be accorded immedi-
ately and without compensation to the like product originating in or
consigned to the territory of the Republic of Colombia or the United
States of America, respectively.
