COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 4008/87

of 23 December 1987

on rules for implementing the import arrangements for products of combined nomenclature code 0714 10 90 originating in countries other than Thailand that are at present Contracting Parties to the GATT

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 430/87 of 9 February 1987 concerning the import arrangements applicable to products falling within subheading 07.06 A of the Common Customs Tariff and coming from third countries, and amending Regulation (EEC) No 950/68 on the Common Customs Tariff (1), and in particular Article 2 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2727/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common organization of the markets in cereals (2), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3808/87 (3), and in particular Article 12 (2) thereof,

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 481/87 (4) laid down rules for implementing the import arrangements for manioc originating in third countries other than Thailand and the People's Republic of China; whereas the light of experience some of these rules should be altered; whereas rules applicable to imports originating in countries, other than the People's Republic of China, that are not members of the GATT are contained in a separate Regulation;

Whereas in particular in order to ensure that the import arrangements are properly run and that the quotas set for 1988 and for 1989 are not exceeded specific rules on the lodging of licence applications and the issuing of certificates should be laid down; whereas these either supplement or derogate from the provisions of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3183/80 of 3 December 1980 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance fixing certificates for agricultural products (5), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2082/87 (6); whereas the tariff reference of the products concerned should be altered to that of the new combined nomenclature applicable from 1 January 1988;
