Commission Regulation (EC) No 451/2004

of 10 March 2004

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2200/96 of 28 October 1996 on the common organisation of the market in fruit and vegetables(1), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 35(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Commission Regulation (EC) No 305/2004(2) opens a tendering procedure setting the indicative refund rates and indicative quantities for which system A3 export licences may be issued.

(2) In the light of the tenders submitted, the maximum refund rates and the percentages of quantities to be awarded for tenders quoting those maximum rates should be set.

(3) In the case of tomatoes, oranges and apples, the maximum rate necessary to award licences for the indicative quantity up to the quantities tendered for is more than one-and-a-half times the indicative refund rate.
