COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1111/96 of 20 June 1996 on the issuing of import licences for bananas under the tariff quota for the third quarter of 1996 and on the submission of new applications (Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EEC) No 404/93 of 13 February 1993 on the common organization of the market in bananas (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 3290/94 (2), and in particular Article 20 thereof,

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1442/93 (3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 875/96 (4), lays down detailed rules for the application of the arrangements for importing bananas into the Community; whereas Commission Regulation (EC) No 478/95 (5), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 702/95 (6), lays down additional rules for the application of the tariff quota arrangements laid down in Articles 18 and 19 of Regulation (EEC) No 404/93;

Whereas Article 9 (3) of Regulation (EEC) No 1442/93 lays down that, where, in the case of a given quarter and a given origin, for a country or group of countries referred to in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 478/95, the quantities covered by import licence applications from one or more of the categories of operators appreciably exceed the indicative quantity fixed, a reduction percentage to be applied to applications shall be set; whereas, however, that provision does not apply to category C licence applications nor to category A and B applications relating to a quantity of 150 tonnes or less, provided that the total quantity covered by the category A and B applications does not exceed, for a given origin, 15 % of the total of the quantities applied for;

Whereas, pursuant to Article 9 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 1442/93, the indicative quantities for import under the tariff quota are laid down for the third quarter of 1996 in Commission Regulation (EC) No 939/96 (7);

Whereas in the case of the quantities covered by licence applications that are either less than or not significantly more than the indicative quantities fixed for the quarter in question, licences are issued for the quantities applied for; whereas, however, for certain origins, the quantities applied for considerably exceed the indicative quantities or the percentages set out in the Annex to Regulation (EC) No 478/95; whereas, therefore, a reduction percentage should be set to be applied under the aforementioned conditions to licence applications for the origin or origins involved and category of licence in question;

Whereas, given the fact that licence applications submitted in Greece have not been forwarded as a result of a long-lasting strike by the public services, the measures provided for in this Regulation have been determined on the basis of the quantities applied for in that Member State in the same quarter of previous years;

Whereas, the maximum quantity for which licence applications may still be submitted should be set taking account of the indicative quantities fixed by Regulation (EC) No 939/96 and the applications accepted at the end of the application period running from 1 to 7 June 1996;

Whereas this Regulation should apply immediately to permit licences to be issued as quickly as possible;

Whereas the Management Committee for Bananas has not issued an opinion within the time limit laid down by its chairman,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Import licences shall be issued under the tariff quota for the import of bananas, provided for in Articles 18 and 19 of Regulation (EEC) No 404/93, for the third quarter of 1996:

(a) multiplied, in the case of the origin 'Costa Rica`, by the reduction coefficient of 0,5472 for category B licence applications, excluding applications relating to a quantity of 150 tonnes or less;

3. for the quantity indicated in the application, in the case of category C licences.

Done at Brussels, 20 June 1996.
