COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 196/97

of 31 January 1997

laying down detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EC) No 2184/96 concerning imports into the Community of rice originating in and coming from Egypt



THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2184/96 of 28 October 1996 concerning imports into the Community of rice originating in and coming from Egypt ( 1 ), and in particular Article 2 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 3072/95 of 22 December 1995 on the common organization of the market in rice ( 2 ), and in particular Article 11 thereof,

Whereas Regulation (EC) No 2184/96 provides that customs duties calculated in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation (EC) No 3072/95 are to be reduced by an amount equal to 25 % of the value of those duties within the limits of an annual volume of 32 000 tonnes; whereas that quantity includes all types of rice regardless of their level of processing; whereas it is therefore necessary to open the quota and to lay down certain rules for its management;

Whereas, with a view to guaranteeing proper administration of the measures, special rules should be laid down regarding the submission of applications and the issuing of licences; whereas those rules will either supplement or derogate from the provisions of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88 ( 3 ), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2402/96 ( 4 );

Whereas, following Council approval of Regulation (EC) No 2184/96, Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2942/73 of 30 October 1973 on detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2412/73 concerning imports of rice from the Arab Republic of Egypt ( 5 ) as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1373/96 ( 6 ), should be repealed;

Whereas the Management Committee for Cereals has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,
