B the number of employees or the size of the enterprise. 3 In particular, there is information on the frequency with which grant applications are refused or accepted, as well as the reasons for such decisions. 4 This standard is met when the facts demonstrate that the granting of a subsidy, without having been legally subordinated to export performance, is actually linked to actual or expected export earnings. The mere granting of a subsidy to the undertakings which have compensated shall not be considered as an export subsidy within the meaning of this provision for that reason alone. 5 Measures referred to in Annex I which do not constitute export subsidies shall not be prohibited by this or any other provision of this Agreement.
