COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2058/96

of 28 October 1996

opening and providing for the management of a tariff quota for broken rice of CN code 1006 40 00 for production of food preparations of CN code 1901 10

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1095/96 of 18 June 1996 on the implementation of the concessions set out in Schedule CXL drawn up in the wake of the conclusion of the GATT XXIV.6 negotiations (1), and in particular Article 1 thereof,

Whereas among the concessions granted is an annual quota of 1 000 tonnes at zero duty of broken rice of CN code 1006 40 00 for production of food preparations of CN code 1901 10;

Whereas to ensure that the quota is properly managed specific rules on submission of applications and issuing of licences are required; whereas these rules either supplement or derogate from the provisions of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88 (2), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2137/95 (3);

Whereas specific provisions are required to ensure that the broken rice imported is not deflected from the prescribed use; whereas duty exemption should therefore be made conditional on submission of an undertaking by the importer as to the use of the rice and lodging of a security equal to the uncharged duty; whereas proper management of the quota requires that a reasonable time be allowed for processing; whereas consignment of the goods requires a T5 control copy to be made out in the Member State of entry for free circulation in accordance with Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2454/93 laying down provisions for implementation of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92 establishing the Community Customs Code (4), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1676/96 (5), as the appropriate means of giving proof of processing; whereas when processing takes place in the Member State of entry for free circulation proof of processing may be furnished by means of an equivalent national document;

Whereas, although the purpose of the security is to ensure payment of a newly arising import debt, there should be some flexibility in release of the security;

Whereas it should be stated that Commission Regulation (EC) No 1162/95 of 23 May 1995 laying down special detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences for cereals and rice (6), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1527/96 (7), applies to imports under this Regulation;

Whereas security against import licences of ECU 25 per tonne should suffice for proper management of the quota;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

An annual zero duty tariff quota of 1 000 tonnes of broken rice of CN code 1006 40 for use in the production of food preparations of CN code 1901 10 is hereby opened in accordance with the provisions of this Regulation.
