COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1396/98 of 30 June 1998 laying down procedures for applying in the poultrymeat sector Council Regulation (EC) No 779/98 on the import into the Community of agricultural products originating in Turkey, repealing Regulation (EEC) No 4115/86 and amending Regulation (EC) No 3010/95

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 779/98 of 7 April 1998 on the import into the Community of agricultural products originating in Turkey, repealing Regulation (EEC) No 4115/86 and amending Regulation (EC) No 3010/95 (1), and in particular Article 1 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2777/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common organization of the market in poultrymeat (2), as last amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No 2916/95 (3), and in particular Article 15 thereof,

Whereas Decision No 1/98 of the EC-Turkey Association Council of 25 February 1998 on the trade regime for agricultural products (4) establishes the system of preferences applicable to imports into the Community of agricultural products originating in Turkey;

Whereas Regulation (EC) No 779/98 opens with effect from 1 January 1998 new annual tariff quotas for certain poultrymeat products; whereas the quotas are to apply for an indefinite period;

Whereas provision should be made for the administration of these arrangements by means of import licences; whereas, to that end, notwithstanding Article 8 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88 of 16 November 1988 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance-fixing certificates for agricultural products (5), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1044/98 (6), detailed rules for submission of applications and the particulars which should appear in applications and licences should be laid down; whereas, in addition, provision should be made for licences to be issued after a period of consideration, applying, where necessary, a single acceptance rate;

Whereas, in order to ensure regular imports, the quantities laid down in Annex I to this Regulation should be staggered over the year;

Whereas, in order to ensure proper administration of the system, the security for import licences under the said system should be fixed at ECU 20 per 100 kilograms; whereas, in view of the likelihood of speculation inherent in the system in the poultrymeat sector, precise conditions governing access by traders to the said system should be laid down;

Whereas the attention of traders should be drawn to the fact that licences may be used only for products that comply with all the veterinary requirements in force in the Community;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Poultrymeat and Eggs,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Where the same applicant submits more than one application relating to products in the same group, all applications from that person shall be inadmissible.

5. The Commission shall decide as quickly as possible to what extent quantities may be awarded in respect of the applications referred to in Article 3.

If quantities in respect of which licences have been applied for exceed the quantities available, the Commission shall fix a single acceptance rate as a percentage of quantities applied for.

If the overall quantity for which applications have been submitted is less than the quantity available, the Commission shall calculate the quantity remaining, which shall be added to the quantity available in respect of the following period.
