Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1528/2007 of 20 December 2007 applying the arrangements for products originating in certain states which are part of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States provided for in agreements establishing, or leading to the establishment of, Economic Partnership Agreements (3), and in particular Article 9(5) thereof,

(2)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 2058/96 of 28 October 1996 opening and providing for the management of a tariff quota for broken rice of CN code 1006 40 00 for production of food preparations of CN code 1901 10 (8) and Commission Regulation (EC) No 1964/2006 of 22 December 2006 laying down detailed rules for the opening and administration of an import quota for rice originating in Bangladesh, pursuant to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3491/90 (9) lay down specific provisions for lodging import licence applications and issuing import licences for broken rice under quota 09.4079 and for rice originating in Bangladesh under quota 09.4517.

(3)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 828/2009 of 10 September 2009 laying down detailed rules of application for the marketing years 2009/2010 to 2014/2015 for the import and refining of sugar products of tariff heading 1701 under preferential agreements (10) lays down specific provisions for lodging import licence applications and issuing import licences under quotas 09.4221, 09.4231 and 09.4241 to 09.4247.

(4)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1918/2006 of 20 December 2006 opening and providing for the administration of tariff quota for olive oil originating in Tunisia (11) lays down specific provisions for lodging import licence applications and issuing import licences for olive oil under quota 09.4032.

(5)

In view of the public holidays in 2012, derogations should be made, at certain times, from Regulations (EC) Nos 2058/96, 2305/2003, 969/2006, 1918/2006, 1964/2006, 1067/2008 and 828/2009 as regards the dates for lodging import licence applications and issuing import licences in order to ensure compliance with the quota volumes in question.

(6)

The second subparagraph of Article 12(1) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 382/2008 of 21 April 2008 on rules of application for import and export licences in the beef and veal sector (12), Article 3(3) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1518/2003 of 28 August 2003 laying down detailed rules for implementing the system of export licences in the pigmeat sector (13), Article 3(3) of Commission Regulation (EU) No 1178/2010 of 13 December 2010 laying down detailed rules for implementing the system of export licences in the egg sector (14) and Article 3(3) of Commission Regulation (EU) No 90/2011 of 3 February 2011 laying down detailed rules for implementing the system of export licences in the poultrymeat sector (15) provide that export licences are to be issued on the Wednesday following the week in which the licence applications were lodged, unless the Commission has taken any particular measures in the meantime.

(7)

(8)

In view of the public holidays in 2012 and the resulting impact on the publication of the Official Journal of the European Union, the period between the lodging of applications and the day on which the licences are to be issued will be too short to ensure proper management of the market. That period should therefore be extended.

(9)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1000/2010 (17) derogating from certain Regulations as regards the dates for lodging applications and issuing import and export licences in 2011 should therefore be repealed.

(10)

The measures set out in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for the Common Organisation of Agricultural Markets,
