THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1095/96 of 18 June 1996 on the implementation of the concessions set out in Schedule CXL drawn up in the wake of the conclusion of the GATT XXIV.6 negotiations (1), and in particular Article 1 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 of 22 October 2007 establishing a common organisation of agricultural markets and on specific provisions for certain agricultural products (Single CMO Regulation) (2), and in particular Article 43(a)a, Article 61, Article 144(1), Articles 148 and 156 and Article 161(3), in conjunction with Article 4 thereof,

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,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 732/2008 of 22 July 2008 applying a scheme of generalised tariff preferences from 1 January 2009 and amending Regulations (EC) No 552/97, (EC) No 1933/2006 and Commission Regulations (EC) No 1100/2006 and (EC) No 964/2007 (4), and in particular Article 11(7) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulations (EC) No 2305/2003 (5), (EC) No 969/2006 (6) and (EC) No 1067/2008 (7) lay down specific provisions on the lodging of import licence applications and the issuing of import licences for barley under quota 09.4126, maize under quota 09.4131 and common wheat of a quality other than high quality under quotas 09.4123, 09.4124, 09.4125 and 09.4133.

(2)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1964/2006 (8) and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 480/2012 (9) lay down specific provisions on the lodging of import licence applications and the issuing of import licences for rice originating in Bangladesh under quota 09.4517 and broken rice under quota 09.4079.

(3)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 828/2009 (10) lays down specific provisions on the lodging of import licence applications and the issuing of import licences under quotas 09.4221, 09.4231, and 09.4241 to 09.4247.

(4)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1918/2006 (11) lays down specific provisions on the lodging of import licence applications and the issuing of import licences for olive oil under quota 09.4032.

(5)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 341/2007 (12) lays down specific provisions on the lodging of ‘A’ import licence applications and the issuing of ‘A’ import licences for garlic under quotas 09.4099, 09.4100, 09.4102, 09.4104, 09.4105 and 09.4106.

(6)

In view of the public holidays in 2014, derogations should be made, at certain times, from Regulations (EC) No 2305/2003, (EC) No 969/2006, (EC) No 1067/2008 and (EC) No 1964/2006, Implementing Regulation (EU) No 480/2012 and Regulations (EC) No 828/2009, (EC) No 1918/2006 and (EC) No 341/2007 as regards the dates for lodging import licence applications and issuing import licences in order to ensure compliance with the quota volumes in question.

(7)

Under Article 7d(1) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 951/2006 (13), export licences for out-of-quota sugar and isoglucose are issued from the Friday following the week during which the licence applications were lodged, provided that no particular measures have since been taken by the Commission.

(8)

Article 3(3) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1518/2003 (14), the second subparagraph of Article 12(1) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 382/2008 (15), Article 3(3) of Commission Regulation (EU) No 1178/2010 (16) and Article 3(3) of Commission Regulation (EU) No 90/2011 (17) stipulate that export licences are issued on the Wednesday following the week during which the licence applications were lodged, provided that no particular measures have since been taken by the Commission.

(9)

In view of the public holidays in 2014 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.

(10)

The second subparagraph of Article 14(1) of Commission Regulation (EU) No 1272/2009 (18) stipulates that the Commission must decide within two working days following the notification referred to in Article 13(1) of that Regulation and within five working days following the notification referred to in Article 13(3) of that Regulation.

(11)

In view of the public holidays in 2014 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 monitor the quantities offered effectively. That period should therefore be extended.

(12)

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