COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 1597/90

of 14 June 1990

on the arrangement applicable to agricultural products subject to reference quantities and originating in the African, Caribbean and Pacific States or in the overseas countries and territories (1990/91)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 715/90 of 5 March 1990 on the arrangements applicable to agricultural products and certain goods resulting from the processing of agricultural products originating in the African, Caribbean and Pacific States or in the overseas countries and territories (1), and in particular Articles 16 and 27 therein,

Whereas Article 16 of Regulation (EEC) No 715/90 stipulates for certain agricultural products, covered by that Regulation and originating in those countries, the progressive reduction, subject to reference quantities laid down within a set time-table, of the customs duties.

Whereas, under the provisions of Council Regulation (EEC) No 486/85 (2), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3530/89 (3), when the rate of customs duty applied to imports into the Community of Ten of a product subject to a reference quantity is lower than that applying in respect of Spain, Portugal or both of these Member States, the process of dismantling begins once duty on imports of that product from Spain and Portugal falls below that applied to imports of the product in question from the other countries; whereas, for this reason, the Annex to this Regulation lists only products in respect of which tariff dismantling begins or continues in 1990.

Whereas by virtue of Council Regulation (EEC) No 1820/87 of 25 June 1987 concerning the application of Decision No 2/87 of the ACP-EEC Council of Ministers on the advance implementation of the Protocol to the Third ACP-EEC Convention (1) consequent on the Accession of the Kingdom of Spain and the Portuguese Republic to the European Communities, Portugal is to postpone implementation of the preferential arrangements for fruit and vegetables falling within Council Regulation (EEC) No 1035/72 (2), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1193/90 (3) until 31 December 1990 whereas, consequently, the above tariff concession does not apply until this date in Portugal;

Whereas, in order to enable the competent authorities within the Commission to establish an annual trade balance sheet for each of the products and, if necessary, to put into application the arrangement provided for in Article 16 (3) of the Regulation (EEC) No 715/90 abovementioned, of the products are subject to a statistical surveillance;

Whereas imports of the products in question are charged against the reference quantities at Community level within pre-established timetables, as and when the products are entered with the customs authorities for free circulation; whereas, therefore, it is appropriate to establish, reference quantities for those products listed in the Annex;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1. Imports into the Community of certain products originating in the African, Caribbean and Pacific States or in the overseas countries and territories shall be subject to reference quantities and to a statistical surveillance.

The products referred to in the first subparagraph, their CN codes, the periods of validity and the levels of the reference quantities are set out in the Annex.

2. The provisions of this Regulation shall apply until 31 December 1990 throughout the Community with the exclusion of Portugal.

3. Quantities shall be charged against the reference quantities as and when products are entered with customs authorities for free circulation and accompanied by a movement certificate. If the movement certificate is submitted a posteriori, the goods shall be charged against the corresponding reference quantity at the moment when the goods are entered for free circulation.

The extent to which the reference quantities are used up shall be determined at Community level on the basis of the imports charged against them in the manner defined in the first subparagraph, as communicated to the Statistical Office of the European Communities.

Article 2

The Member States and the Commission shall cooperate closely to ensure that this Regulation is complied with.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on 1 September 1990.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 14 June 1990.
