COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 1037/1999

of 17 May 1999

on the application of specific measures for the import of grape juice and must originating in Cyprus

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 133 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

(1) Whereas the agreement establishing an association between the European Economic Community and the Republic of Cyprus(1) provides for the opening of an annual Community tariff quota for certain concentrated grape juices and musts originating in Cyprus; whereas the import duty for this tariff quota is 0 %;

(2) Whereas from 1 September 1995 the old reference price system applicable to imports of grape juice and must into the Community was replaced by new import arrangements resulting from the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations; whereas the association agreement with Cyprus must take these new import arrangements into account;

(3) Whereas it is necessary to maintain the tariff preferences already granted and to permit Cyprus to continue to export its products to the Community under the tariff quota arrangements; whereas to this end and pending conclusion of a new agreement between the European Community and Cyprus, the necessary specific measures should be taken,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
