COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 221/2006

of 8 February 2006

laying down the reduction coefficient to be applied in the context of subquota III for common wheat of a quality other than high quality provided for in Regulation (EC) No 2375/2002, pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 169/2006

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 of 29 September 2003 on the common organisation of the market in cereals (1),

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EC) No 2375/2002 of 27 December 2002 opening and providing for the administration of Community tariff quotas for common wheat of a quality other than high quality from third countries and derogating from Council Regulation (EEC) No 1766/92 (2), and in particular Article 5(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EC) No 2375/2002 opened an annual tariff quota of 2 981 600 tonnes of common wheat of a quality other than high quality. That quota is divided into three subquotas.

(2)

Article 1 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 169/2006 of 31 January 2006 derogating from Regulation (EC) No 2375/2002 as regards the issue of import licences under tranche No 1 of subquota III for common wheat of a quality other than high quality (3) fixed at 464 879,874 tonnes the quantity under subquota III still available for the period from 1 January to 31 March 2006.

(3)

The quantities applied for on 6 February 2006, in accordance with Article 5(1) of Regulation (EC) No 2375/2002, exceed the quantities available. The extent to which licences may be issued should therefore be determined and the reduction coefficient for the quantities applied for laid down,

Article 1

Each application for an import licence under subquota III for common wheat of a quality other than high quality lodged and forwarded to the Commission on 6 February 2006 in accordance with Article 5(1) and (2) of Regulation (EC) No 2375/2002 shall be accepted at a rate of 80,56049 % of the quantity applied for.
