THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 133 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas:

(1) By Decision 1999/753/EC of 29 July 1999(1) the Council approved the provisional application of the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of South Africa, of the other part(2) (hereinafter referred to as the "TDC Agreement"). The TDC Agreement has been applied provisionally from 1 January 2000.

(2) Annex X to the TDC Agreement contains an Exchange of Letters between the European Community and the Republic of South Africa which provides for an annual duty-free tariff quota of 32 million litres of South African wine imported in bottles. Article 8 of Council Regulation (EC) No 2793/1999 of 17 December 1999 on certain procedures for applying the Trade, Development and Cooperation Agreement between the European Community and the Republic of South Africa(3), defers the opening of that tariff quota for wine until the entry into force of the Agreements between the European Community and the Republic of South Africa on trade in wine and trade in spirits respectively.

(3) By Decision 2002/51/EC(4) the Council has approved, on behalf of the Community, an Agreement between the European Community and the Republic of South Africa on trade in wine. Furthermore, the Council by Decision 2002/55/EC(5) has approved an Agreement in the form of an Exchange of Letters between the European Community and the Republic of South Africa on trade in wine amending the volume of the tariff quota for wine imported in bottles provided for in Annex X to the TDC Agreement.

(4) Regulation (EC) No 2793/1999 should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
