COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 932/2013

of 26 September 2013

on the issue of licences for importing rice under the tariff quotas opened for the September 2013 subperiod by Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1273/2011

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 of 22 October 2007 establishing a common organisation of agricultural markets and on specific provisions for certain agricultural products (Single CMO Regulation) (1),

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 of 31 August 2006 laying down common rules for the administration of import tariff quotas for agricultural products managed by a system of import licences (2), and in particular Article 7(2) thereof,

Having regard to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1273/2011 of 7 December 2011 opening and providing for the administration of certain tariff quotas for imports of rice and broken rice (3), and in particular the first paragraph of Article 5 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1273/2011 opened and provided for the administration of certain import tariff quotas for rice and broken rice, broken down by country of origin and split into several subperiods in accordance with Annex I to that Implementing Regulation.

(2)

September is the fourth subperiod for the quota provided for under Article 1(1)(a) of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1273/2011, the third subperiod for the quota provided for under Article 1(1)(d) of that Implementing Regulation and the first subperiod for the quota provided for under Article 1(1)(e) of that Implementing Regulation.

(3)

The notifications sent in accordance with point (a) of Article 8 of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1273/2011 show that, for the quotas with order number 09.4112 – 09.4117 – 09.4119 – 09.4168, the applications lodged in the first 10 working days of September 2013 under Article 4(1) of that Implementing Regulation cover a quantity greater than that available. The extent to which import licences may be issued should therefore be determined by fixing the allocation coefficient to be applied to the quantity requested under the quotas concerned.

(4)

Those notifications also show that, for the quotas with order number 09.4127 – 09.4128 – 09.4129 – 09.4130 – 09.4116 – 09.4118, the applications lodged in the first 10 working days of September 2013 under Article 4(1) of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1273/2011 cover a quantity less than that available.

(5)

The quantity not used for the September subperiod of the quotas with order number 09.4127 – 09.4128 – 09.4129 – 09.4130 is transferred to the quota bearing the order number 09.4138 for the following subperiod under Article 2 of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1273/2011.

(6)

The total quantity available for the following subperiod should also be fixed for the quotas with order number 09.4138 and 09.4168, in accordance with the first subparagraph of Article 5 of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1273/2011.

(7)

In order to ensure sound management of the procedure of issuing import licences, this Regulation should enter into force immediately after its publication,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
