(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 2013, derogations should be made, at certain times, from Regulations (EC) Nos 2305/2003, 969/2006, 1067/2008, 1964/2006, Implementing Regulation (EU) No 480/2012 and Regulations (EC) Nos 828/2009 and 1918/2006 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)

Article 7d(1) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 951/2006 of 30 June 2006 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 318/2006 as regards trade with third countries in the sugar sector (12) lays down that export licences for out-of-quota sugar and isoglucose are to be issued from the Friday following the week during 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 2013 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)

Under the second subparagraph of Article 14(1) of Commission Regulation (EU) No 1272/2009 of 11 December 2009 laying down common detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 as regards buying-in and selling of agricultural products under public intervention (17), the Commission shall decide within two working days following the notification referred to in Article 13(1) and within five working days following the notification referred to in Article 13(3) of that Regulation.

(10)

In view of the public holidays in 2013 and the resulting impact on the publication of the Official Journal of the European Union, the period for examination of offers will be too short to effectively monitor the quantities offered. That period should therefore be extended.

(11)

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