COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2020/383

of 6 March 2020

fixing the import duties applicable to certain husked rice from 9 March 2020

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 922/72, (EEC) No 234/79, (EC) No 1037/2001 and (EC) No 1234/2007 (1), and in particular point (a) of the first paragraph of Article 183 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The Agreement in the form of an Exchange of Letters between the European Community and the United States of America relating to the method of calculation of applied duties for husked rice, approved by Council Decision 2005/476/EC (2), establishes a method for calculating duties applied to imports of husked rice.

(2)

On the basis of the information provided by the competent authorities, the Commission notes that import licences for husked rice falling within CN code 1006 20, other than import licences for basmati rice, were issued in respect of 235 233 tonnes for the period from 1 September 2019 to 29 February 2020. The import duty for husked rice falling within CN code 1006 20 other than basmati rice, fixed by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/371 (3), should therefore be adjusted.

(3)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/371 should thus be repealed.

(4)

The applicable duty must be fixed within 10 days of the end of the period referred to above. This Regulation should therefore enter into force immediately,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The import duty for husked rice falling within CN code 1006 20 other than basmati rice shall be EUR 42,50 per tonne.

Article 2

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/371 is repealed.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 6 March 2020.

For the Commission,

On behalf of the President,

María Ángeles BENÍTEZ SALAS

Acting Director-General

Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development
