Allocation coefficient and suspension of the submission of licence applications

Except for import tariff quotas managed with documents issued by third countries and export tariff quotas managed by third countries, the Commission shall calculate an allocation coefficient for each tariff quota.

Unless provided otherwise in Title III, the allocation coefficient for licences shall not exceed 100 %, and shall be calculated as follows: [(available quantity/requested quantity) × 100] %. The allocation coefficient shall be rounded to six digits. The Commission shall adjust the allocation coefficient in order to ensure that the quantities available for the import or export tariff quota period or sub-period are not exceeded.
4.  
If the quota quantity for a sub-period or under the system of monthly application is exhausted, the Commission shall suspend the submission of further applications until the end of the tariff quota period or sub-period.

Such request shall be made by the 15th day, 13.00 Brussels time, of the month in which the Member States notified the quantities applied for. However, for quantities notified by 6 December, such request shall be made by 8 December, 13.00 Brussels time. Licence issuing authorities shall provide the Commission with an email address to which the requests should be addressed.
8.  
Licence issuing authorities shall reply to Commission requests referred to in paragraph 7 before the 21st day, 13.00 Brussels time, of the month following the request.
