COUNCIL REGULATION (EU) 2018/913

of 25 June 2018

amending Regulation (EU) No 1388/2013 opening and providing for the management of autonomous tariff quotas of the Union for certain agricultural and industrial products

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 31 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

In order to ensure the sufficient and uninterrupted supply of certain goods insufficiently produced in the Union and to avoid disturbances on the market for certain agricultural and industrial products, autonomous tariff quotas were opened by Council Regulation (EU) No 1388/2013 (1). Products within those tariff quotas can be imported into the Union at reduced or zero duty rates.

(2)

For those reasons, it is necessary to open, with effect from 1 July 2018, tariff quotas at zero duty rates for an appropriate volume as regards seven new products.

(3)

In the case of eight additional products, the quota volumes should be increased, as an increase is in the interest of economic operators of the Union.

(4)

In the case of three products, the description should be amended.

(5)

Regulation (EU) No 1388/2013 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

In order to avoid any interruption of the application of the quota scheme and to comply with the guidelines set out in the Communication from the Commission concerning autonomous tariff suspensions and quotas (2), the changes provided for in this Regulation regarding the quotas for the products concerned have to apply from 1 July 2018. The Regulation should therefore enter into force as a matter of urgency,
