COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 3170/87
of 23 October 1987
laying down detailed rules for the application of the special measures for import of olive oil originating in Tunisia
THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,
Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,
Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3159/87 of 19 October 1987 laying down special measures for imports of olive oil originating in Tunisia (1), and in particular Articles 1 and 4 thereof,
Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 3159/87 provides for the application of a reduced import levy on a certain quantity of olive oil originating in Tunisia; whereas, under Article 1 of that Regulation, the import levy applicable to that quantity must be fixed at a level that takes into account the prevailing market situation; whereas the import levy should be fixed at the level set out hereunder;
Whereas, pursuant to Article 4 of Council Regulation No 136/66/EEC (2), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) 1915/87 (3), a threshold price must be fixed from 1 November for the 1987/88 marketing year; whereas a provision should therefore be adopted whereby the special levy must be adjusted to take account of possible future changes in the threshold price; whereas, under Article 4 of that Regulation, measures must be adopted in order to avoid any deflection of trade and, in particular, ensure that the levy applicable in the case of third countries is charged if the oil is released for consumption in Spain or Portugal;
Whereas the quantity of oil imported from Tunisia must not exceed that specified in Article 1 of Regulation (EEC) No 3159/87; whereas, therefore, the tolerance provided for in Article 8 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3183/80 of 3 December 1980 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance fixing certificates for agricultural products (4), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2082/87 (5), should not be allowed;
Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Oils and Fats,
HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
The import levy referred to in Article 1 of Regulation (EEC) No 3159/87 shall be 16 ECU per 100 kilograms.
However, for oil released for free circulation from 1 November 1987, the levy shall be adjusted in the light of the changes, if any, in the threshold price.
1. Member States of the Community, as constituted at 31 December 1985, in which olive oil originating in Tunisia is released for free circulation in accordance with Regulation (EEC) No 3159/87 shall introduce a control system which requires that, in cases where olive oil which falls within subheadings 15.07 A I a) and b) of the Common Customs Tariff and which is contained in vessels of a net capacity greater than five litres, or in bulk, is exported to Spain or to Portugal from the territory of those Member States, the operator must demonstrate to the satisfaction of those Member States that the oil concerned is not of Tunisian origin. That requirement shall apply until 31 August 1988, without prejudice to application of paragraph 2.
2. Where, after being released for free circulation in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 1, the oil is consigned to another Member State the document attesting to the Community status of the goods shall include one of the following forms of wording:
