Whereas:

(1)

(2)

Article 10(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 lays down that, for the purposes of calculating the import duty referred to in paragraph 2 of that Article, representative cif import prices are to be established on a regular basis for the products in question.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 962/2007

of 14 August 2007

amending Regulation (EC) No 996/97 on the opening and administration of an import tariff quota for frozen thin skirt of bovine animals falling within CN code 0206 29 91

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1254/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in beef and veal (1), and in particular the first subparagraph of Article 32(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 996/97 (2) provides for the opening and administration, on a multi-annual basis, of an import tariff quota for frozen thin skirt of bovine animals falling within CN code 0206 29 91.

(2)

The first paragraph of Article 8 of 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 (3) provides that import licences should not be valid after the last day of the import tariff quota period.

(3)

In order to align the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 996/97 to those in Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006, Regulation (EC) No 996/97 was amended by Regulation (EC) No 568/2007, in particular by deleting the provision concerning the period of validity of import licences.

(4)

Since Article 3 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1445/95 of 26 June 1995 on rules of application for import and export licences in the beef and veal sector (4) provides that import licences shall be valid 90 days from their date of issue, it is necessary to clarify in Regulation (EC) No 996/97 that licences should be valid until the end of the import tariff quota period.

(5)

Regulation (EC) No 996/97 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

In order to ensure that the import licences issued for the import tariff quota period from 1 July 2007 to 30 June 2008 are valid until the end of that import tariff quota period, it should be provided that this amendment applies as from the quota period starting on 1 July 2007.

(7)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Beef and Veal,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

In Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 996/97, the following paragraph 3 is added:

‘3.   By way of derogation from Article 3 of Regulation (EC) No 1445/95, import licences shall be valid until the end of the import tariff quota period.’

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply to import licences issued as from the quota period starting on 1 July 2007.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 963/2007

of 14 August 2007

implementing Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 58/97 with regard to derogations to be granted for structural business statistics

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 58/97 of 20 December 1996 concerning structural business statistics (1), and in particular Article 12(x) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 58/97 established a common framework for the production of Community statistics on environmental protection expenditures as well as on the structure, activity, performance and competitiveness of pension funds.

(2)

Article 11 of Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 58/97 provides that derogations from the provisions of the Annexes to that Regulation may be accepted during the transitional periods. In accordance with Section 10 of Annex 2 and Section 10 of Annex 7 to that Regulation, the transitional periods laid down may be extended by a further period in respect of certain characteristics.

(3)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1667/2003 of 1 September 2003 (2) granted Member States derogations during a transitional period for the reference years 2001 to 2004 in respect of statistics on environmental protection expenditures and for the reference years 2002 to 2004 in respect of statistics on pension funds.

(4)

Some Member States have asked for derogations for an extended transitional period from certain provisions of Annex 2 to Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 58/97 in respect of the characteristics 21 12 0 and 21 14 0 for the reference years 2005 to 2008 in order to put in place the necessary data collection systems or adapt the existing ones so that by the end of the transitional period the provisions of the Regulation will have been met.

(5)

Several Member States have asked for derogations for an extended transitional period from certain provisions of Annex 7 to Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 58/97 in respect of pension funds for the reference years 2005 to 2007 in order to put in place the necessary data collection systems or adapt existing ones so that by the end of the transitional period the provisions of the Regulation will have been met.

(6)

It seems justified to grant those derogations, as the Member States' requests are based on a legitimate need to further adapt their data collection systems.

(7)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Statistical Programme Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Derogations from the characteristics 21 12 0 and 21 14 0 of Section 4 of Annex 2 to Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 58/97 are granted for the reference years 2005 to 2008 as specified in Annex I to this Regulation.

Article 2

Derogations from the list of characteristics contained in Section 4 of Annex 7 to Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 58/97 are granted for the reference years 2005 to 2007 as specified in Annex II to this Regulation.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on the 20th day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 964/2007

of 14 August 2007

laying down detailed rules for the opening and administration of the tariff quotas for rice originating in the least developed countries for the marketing years 2007/2008 and 2008/2009

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 980/2005 of 27 June 2005 applying a scheme of generalised tariff preferences (1), and in particular Article 12(6) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003 of 29 September 2003 on the common organisation of the market in rice (2), and in particular Articles 10(2) and 13(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1401/2002 (3) lays down detailed rules for the opening and administration of the tariff quotas for rice originating in the least developed countries for the marketing years 2002/2003 to 2008/2009. Since its entry into force, horizontal or sectoral implementing regulations, that is, Commission Regulation (EC) No 1291/2000 of 9 June 2000 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance fixing certificates for agricultural products (4), Commission Regulation (EC) No 1342/2003 of 28 July 2003 laying down special detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences for cereals and rice (5), and 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 (6), have been adopted or amended, and must be taken into account in respect of this quota.

(2)

Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 lays down in particular detailed rules for applications for import licences, the status of applicants and the issue of licences. It applies without prejudice to additional conditions or derogations laid down by the sectoral regulations. For the sake of clarity, therefore, the administration of the Community tariff quotas for imports of rice originating in the least developed countries should be adapted by adopting a new regulation and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1401/2002.

(3)

Article 12(5) of Regulation (EC) No 980/2005 lays down that, until Common Customs Tariff duties are entirely suspended as from 1 September 2009, a global tariff quota at zero duty is to be opened for every marketing year for products of CN code 1006, originating in a country that, according to Annex I of that Regulation, benefits from the special arrangements for least developed countries. This tariff quota is calculated on the basis of a quantity of 2 895 tonnes for the 2002/2003 marketing year, in husked rice equivalent, for products of CN code 1006, increased by 15 % for each of the following marketing years. Those quantities should be fixed for the coming marketing years on those bases.

(4)

In the interests of sound administration of those quotas, operators should be permitted to submit licence applications in the first seven days of the marketing year starting on 1 September and, if there are any remaining quantities, it should be possible to submit new applications in the first seven days of February. For the same reason the specific rules which apply to the drawing up of licence applications, their issue, their period of validity and the notification of information to the Commission should be laid down in this Regulation, as well as suitable administrative measures to ensure that the volume of the quota fixed is not exceeded. In any event, under Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 licences are valid only up to and including the last day of the tariff quota period. Moreover, in order to improve controls on the quota, the security should be fixed at a level commensurate with the risks involved.

(5)

The rules on the proof of origin set out in Articles 67 to 97 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2454/93 of 2 July 1993 laying down provisions for the implementation of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92 establishing the Community Customs Code (7) define the concept of originating products to be used for the purposes of generalised tariff preferences. Provision should be made for the application of those rules.

(6)

These measures should be applied from the start of the next marketing year, 1 September 2007.

(7)

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
