Whereas:

(1)

An agreement was concluded in the form of an Exchange of Letters between the European Union and Iceland concerning additional trade preferences in agricultural products (‘the Agreement’) reached on the basis of Article 19 of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (2). The Agreement was approved on behalf of the Union by Council Decision (EU) 2017/1913 (3).

The measures laid down in this Regulation should apply from the date of entry into force of the Agreement.

(5)

The tariff quota should be managed by the Commission on the basis of the chronological order of dates of acceptance of customs declarations for release for free circulation in accordance with the rules for the management of tariff quotas laid down in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2447 (4).

(6)

The Agreement provides that the provisions set out in Protocol 3 to the Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Republic of Iceland, as amended by Decision No 2/2005 of the EC-Iceland Joint Committee (5), shall apply to the products benefitting from the tariff quota.

(7)

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Article 2

The tariff quota set out in the Annex shall be managed in accordance with Articles 49 to 54 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2447.
