COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 3806/92

of 23 December 1992

fixing the number of young male bovine animals which may be imported on special terms in the first quarter of 1993 and derogating from Regulation (EEC) No 2377/80 in respect of that quarter as regards the allocation of the quantities available

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 805/68 of 27 June 1968 on the common organization of the market in beef and veal (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2066/92 (2), and in particular Articles 13 (4), 15 (2) and 25 thereof,

Whereas the Council has drawn up an estimated supply balance of 198 000 head under the new import arrangements applicable to young male bovine animals for fattening for the period 1 January to 31 December 1993; whereas, pursuant to Article 13 (4) (a) of Regulation (EEC) No 805/68, the number which may be imported each quarter and the rate of reduction in the import levy on such animals must be determined;

Whereas detailed rules for the practical application of these special arrangements were laid down in Commission Regulation (EEC) No 612/77 (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1121/87 (4), and in Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2377/80 (5), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 815/91 (6);

Whereas the supply requirements of certain regions of the Community which have a serious shortfall in bovine animals for fattening must be taken into account; whereas those requirements are apparent in Italy and Greece and may be estimated for the first quarter of 1993 at 42 120 head and 6 435 head respectively in those Member States;

Whereas Council Regulation (EEC) No 1432/92 (7), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2015/92 (8), prohibits trade between the European Economic Community and the Republics of Serbia and Montenegro; whereas these Republics are therefore excluded from the scheme;

Whereas, in accordance with letter No 2 annexed to the Interim Agreement between the European Economic Community and the European Coal and Steel Community of the one part, and the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic of the other part, these arrangements should apply to that Republic;

Whereas the supply requirements in young bovine animals for fattening justify, for the first quarter of 1993, a higher rate of reduction in the levy on animals weighing from 220 to 300 kilograms per head, originating in and coming from Hungary, Poland or the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic;

Whereas the quantities available must be shared between the traditional trade and other potential applicants;

Whereas, in order to simplify the procedure for allocating the quantities available it is necessary to derogate from Regulation (EEC) No 2377/80; whereas in the case of the traditional trade the quantities available should be allocated directly in proportion to the number of head imported during the last three years; whereas, in the case of other applicants, the quantities available should be allocated directly in proportion to the number of head for which application is made;

Whereas, in the case of other applicants, the maximum quantity which each application for an import licence may cover must be limited, in order to permit a more equitable distribution of the quantities available; whereas for financial reasons a minimum number of head should be set for these applications;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1. For the period 1 January to 31 March 1993, the maximum number referred to in Article 13 (4) (a) of Regulation (EEC) No 805/68 shall be 52 335 head of young male bovine animals for fattening comprising:

7. Of the number of head reserved for Italy and Greece for each category notwithstanding Article 15 (6) (a) of Regulation (EEC) No 2377/80:

8. The proof referred to in 7 shall be provided by the customs document of release for free circulation.

(a) relate to a number equal to or more than 50 head, and

(b) relate to a quantity not exceeding 10 % of the quantities available except where the said 10 % results in a figure less than 50 head; in the latter case the maximum figure shall also be 50 head.

2. In cases where applications for import licences state quantities in excess of those provided for by the Regulation, those applications shall only be considered within the limits of the said quantities.

3. Numbers shall be allocated in proportion to the number of head for which application is made.

Article 5

Three weeks at the latest after import of the livestock referred to in this Regulation, importers shall inform the competent authorities which issued the import licences, of the number and origin of the animals imported. Those authorities shall forward that information to the Commission at the beginning of each month.

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