COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1371/96 of 16 July 1996 on the issuing of import licences for bananas under the tariff quota for the third quarter of 1996 (second period)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council 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),

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1442/93 of 10 June 1993 laying down detailed rules for the application of the arrangements for importing bananas into the Community (3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 875/96 (4), and in particular Article 9 (3) thereof,

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EC) No 478/95 of 1 March 1995 on additional rules for the application of Council Regulation (EEC) No 404/93 as regards the tariff quota arrangements for imports of bananas into the Community and amending Regulation (EEC) No 1442/93 (5), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 702/95 (6), and in particular Article 4 (3) thereof,

Whereas Article 2 of 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 (7), fixes the quantities available for new licence applications under the tariff quota during the third quarter of 1996; whereas Article 4 (3) of Regulation (EC) No 478/95 lays down that the quantities for which licences may be issued for the origin(s) concerned must be determined without delay;

Whereas Article 9 (3) of Regulation (EEC) No 1442/93 lays down that, where, in the case of a given quarter and 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 exceed the quantity available, a reduction percentage is to be applied to application for that origin; 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 the quantities applied for 'Colombia category B and Venezuela` exceed the quantity available and a reduction coefficient should therefore be applied; whereas import licences may be issued for the quantity referred to in all other new applications;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Import licences shall be issued under the tariff quota for the import of bananas during the third quarter of 1996 against new applications as referred to in Article 4 (1) of Regulation (EC) No 478/95:
