COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/28

of 14 January 2021

amending Council Regulation (EC) No 1362/2000 as regards the Union tariff quota for bananas originating in Mexico

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1362/2000 of 29 June 2000 implementing for the Community the tariff provisions of Decision No 2/2000 of the Joint Council under the Interim Agreement on Trade and Trade-related matters between the European Community and the United Mexican States (1), and in particular Article 4 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

To take account of the accession to the European Union of Croatia on 1 July 2013, the Council, by Decision (EU) 2019/573 (2), concluded on behalf of the European Union and its Member States the Third Additional Protocol to the Economic Partnership, Political Coordination and Cooperation Agreement between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the United Mexican States, of the other part (3), which was signed on 27 November 2018, and entered into force on 1 March 2020.

(2)

By Decision (EU) 2019/104 (4), the Council approved the position to be adopted on behalf of the European Union in the Joint Council established under the Economic Partnership, Political Coordination and Cooperation Agreement between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the United Mexican States, of the other part, on amendments to the Agreement necessary to take account of the accession of Croatia to the Union.

(3)

Decision No 1/2020 of the EU-Mexico Joint Council (5) provides for an increase of the Union tariff quota applicable to fresh bananas originating in Mexico for release for free circulation in the Union.

(4)

Regulation (EC) No 1362/2000 should therefore be amended in order to implement the increase of the tariff quota laid down in the Decision No 1/2020 of the EU-Mexico Joint Council. Given that the tariff quota for bananas for the year 2020 has been exhausted, an individual order number has to be attributed to the additional volume for that year.

(5)

In order to avoid any unnecessary delay in the application of this tariff quota, this Regulation should enter into force as a matter of urgency and should apply retroactively from the third day after the publication of the Decision No 1/2020 of the EU-Mexico Joint Council in the Official Journal of the European Union.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Customs Code Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
