COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 404/2014

of 17 February 2014

amending Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the monitoring of CO2 emissions from new light commercial vehicles type-approved in a multi-stage process

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 May 2011 setting emission performance standards for new light commercial vehicles as part of the Union's integrated approach to reduce CO2 emissions from light-duty vehicles (1), and in particular the second subparagraph of Article 8(9) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Annex XII to Commission Regulation (EC) No 692/2008 (2) sets out a new method for determining the CO2 emissions from and fuel consumption of N1 vehicles which are type-approved in a multi-stage process (hereinafter referred to as ‘multi-stage vehicles’). The new method will apply from 1 January 2014 but may already be applied on a voluntary basis since 1 January 2013.

(2)

Point 7 of Part B of Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 provides that the specific emissions of CO2 of completed vehicles are to be allocated to the manufacturer of the base vehicle. This requires that a completed multi-stage vehicle can be recognised in the monitoring process and that the manufacturer of the base vehicle can be identified. It also requires certain data relating to the base vehicle to be determined in accordance with the methodology set out in Annex XII to Regulation (EC) No 692/2008.

(3)

The manufacturers of the base vehicle have, in accordance with Article 8(5) of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011, the right to verify the data relating to a multi-stage vehicle, on the basis of which their specific CO2 emissions targets are calculated. It is therefore appropriate to provide the relevant data parameters ensuring that such verification may be effectively performed.

(4)

The methodology set out in Annex XII to Regulation (EC) No 692/2008 applies with regard to incomplete and completed vehicles. However, where a complete vehicle is further transformed prior to the first registration, it should be clarified that it is the mass in running order and the CO2 emissions of the complete vehicle that is used as a base vehicle that should be monitored and taken into account for the calculation of the specific emissions targets.

(5)

It is necessary to specify further the data that should be provided in order to ensure that the CO2 emission performance of multi-stage vehicles can be adequately and efficiently monitored and verified.

(6)

A vehicle is identified by a vehicle identification number (hereinafter referred to as ‘VIN’), i.e. an alphanumeric code assigned to the vehicle by the manufacturer in accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) No 19/2011 (3). Directive 2007/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (4) provides, in Section 4 of Annex XVII, that the identification number of the base vehicle shall, as the basic rule, be retained during all subsequent stages of the type-approval process to ensure the traceability of the process. Through the VIN it should therefore be possible to link the completed vehicle to a base vehicle and thus determine the base vehicle manufacturer responsible for the CO2 emissions. Moreover, the VIN should allow the base vehicle manufacturer to verify the relevant data related to the base vehicle. As there are no other parameters that can provide that kind of link, it is appropriate to require Member States to monitor and report VINs of newly registered N1 vehicles to the Commission through the data collection system of the European Environment Agency (EEA).

(7)

In order to calculate the specific emissions targets with regard to multi-stage vehicles, it is necessary, in accordance with point 7 of Part B of Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011, to consider the default added mass determined in accordance with point 5.3 of Annex XII to Regulation (EC) No 692/2008. This will require the monitoring and reporting of the mass in running order of the base vehicle and the technically permissible maximum laden mass of that vehicle, through which the default added mass may be determined, or, alternatively, the monitoring and reporting of the default added mass itself. Moreover, in order to determine whether a multi-stage vehicle falls within the scope of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011, it is necessary to verify that the reference mass of the completed vehicle does not exceed the limits referred to in Article 2(1) of that Regulation.

(8)

Where Member States are not able to provide all the parameters required pursuant to Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 due to the design of their system for registration of data relating to new light commercial vehicles, those parameters may be provided by the manufacturers concerned in the notification referred to in Article 8(5) of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011.

(9)

For that same reason, manufacturers may, in accordance with Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 293/2012 (5), provide the Commission and the EEA with the VINs they assigned to vehicles sold in the preceding calendar year or for which a warranty was issued in that year.

(10)

VINs may, following the registration of a vehicle for its entry into service in road traffic, be linked to datasets permitting the identification of the owner of the vehicle. The VIN by itself is, however, not a carrier of personal data and the processing of data for the purposes of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 does not require access to or the processing of any linked personal data. The monitoring and reporting of VINs is therefore not considered as processing of personal data falling within the scope of Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (6) or Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council (7). Nevertheless, it is recognised that VINs may be considered to be sensitive data, inter alia, with regard to the prevention of vehicle theft, and it is therefore appropriate to ensure that the VINs reported to the Commission and the EEA are not made public.

(11)

By matching the VINs reported by the Member States with those provided by the manufacturers, the Commission, supported by the EEA, should identify the manufacturers and the vehicles concerned and prepare the provisional dataset in accordance with Article 10b of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 293/2012.

(12)

In order to ensure full parallelism of the monitoring requirements under Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 with those applicable to passenger cars under Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council (8), it is appropriate to adapt the requirements in Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 on the provision of aggregated data and the methodology for determining the CO2 monitoring information for light commercial vehicles.

(13)

Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 is amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

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

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1451/2007 (2) establishes a list of active substances to be assessed, with a view to their possible inclusion in Annex I, IA or IB to Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (3). That list includes lauric acid.

(2)

Lauric acid has been evaluated in accordance with Article 11(2) of Directive 98/8/EC for use in product-type 19, repellents and attractants, as defined in Annex V to that Directive, which corresponds to product-type 19 as defined in Annex V to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012.

(3)

Germany was designated as Rapporteur Member State and submitted the competent authority report, together with a recommendation, to the Commission on 17 May 2010 in accordance with Article 14(4) and (6) of Regulation (EC) No 1451/2007.

(4)

The competent authority report was reviewed by the Member States and the Commission. In accordance with Article 15(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1451/2007, the findings of the review were incorporated in an assessment report reviewed within the Standing Committee on Biocidal Products on 13 March 2014.

(5)

According to that assessment report, biocidal products used for product-type 19 and containing lauric acid may be expected to satisfy the requirements laid down in Article 5 of Directive 98/8/EC, provided that certain specifications and conditions relating to its use are satisfied.

(6)

It is therefore appropriate to approve lauric acid for use in biocidal products for product-type 19 subject to compliance with such specifications and conditions.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 407/2014

of 23 April 2014

approving transfluthrin as an existing active substance for use in biocidal products for product-type 18

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2012 concerning the making available on the market and use of biocidal products (1), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 89(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1451/2007 (2) establishes a list of active substances to be assessed, with a view to their possible inclusion in Annex I, IA or IB to Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (3). That list includes transfluthrin.

(2)

Transfluthrin has been evaluated in accordance with Article 11(2) of Directive 98/8/EC for use in product-type 18, insecticides, acaricides and products to control other arthropods, as defined in Annex V to that Directive, which corresponds to product-type 18 as defined in Annex V to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012.

(3)

The Netherlands was designated as Rapporteur Member State and submitted the competent authority report, together with a recommendation, to the Commission on 13 July 2010 in accordance with Article 14(4) and (6) of Regulation (EC) No 1451/2007.

(4)

The competent authority report was reviewed by the Member States and the Commission. In accordance with Article 15(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1451/2007, the findings of the review were incorporated in an assessment report reviewed within the Standing Committee on Biocidal Products on 13 March 2014.

(5)

According to that assessment report, biocidal products used for product-type 18 and containing transfluthrin may be expected to satisfy the requirements laid down in Article 5 of Directive 98/8/EC, provided that certain specifications and conditions relating to its use are satisfied.

approving synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide as an existing active substance for use in biocidal products for product-type 18

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2012 concerning the making available on the market and use of biocidal products (1), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 89(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1451/2007 (2) establishes a list of active substances to be assessed, with a view to their possible inclusion in Annex I, IA or IB to Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (3). That list includes silicon dioxide.

(2)

Silicon dioxide has been evaluated in accordance with Article 11(2) of Directive 98/8/EC for use in product-type 18, insecticides, acaricides and products to control other arthropods, as defined in Annex V to that Directive, which corresponds to product-type 18 as defined in Annex V to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012.

(3)

The data submitted for the purpose of the evaluation allowed conclusions to be drawn only regarding a certain form of silicon dioxide, i.e. synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide described as wet silica CAS No 112926-00-8. The evaluation did not allow conclusions to be drawn regarding any other substance complying with the definition of silicon dioxide CAS No 7631-86-9 in the abovementioned list of active substances in Regulation (EC) No 1451/2007. Therefore, only synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide should be covered by the approval.

(4)

France was designated as rapporteur Member State and submitted the competent authority report, together with a recommendation, to the Commission on 16 April 2009 in accordance with Article 14(4) and (6) of Regulation (EC) No 1451/2007.

(5)

The competent authority report was reviewed by the Member States and the Commission. In accordance with Article 15(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1451/2007, the findings of the review were incorporated in an assessment report reviewed within the Standing Committee on Biocidal Products on 13 March 2014.

(6)

According to that assessment report, biocidal products used for product-type 18 and containing synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide may be expected to satisfy the requirements laid down in Article 5 of Directive 98/8/EC, provided that certain specifications and conditions relating to its use are satisfied.

(7)

It is therefore appropriate to approve synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide for use in biocidal products for product-type 18 subject to compliance with such specifications and conditions.

(8)

Since synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide as evaluated is a nanomaterial, the approval should cover such nanomaterials pursuant to Article 4(4) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 provided that certain specifications and conditions relating to their use are satisfied.

(9)

A reasonable period should be allowed to elapse before an active substance is approved, in order to permit interested parties to take the preparatory measures necessary to meet the new requirements laid down.

(10)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Biocidal Products,

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 410/2014

of 23 April 2014

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) No 293/2012 as regards the monitoring of CO2 emissions from new light commercial vehicles type-approved in a multi-stage process

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 May 2011 setting emission performance standards for new light commercial vehicles as part of the Union's integrated approach to reduce CO2 emissions from light-duty vehicles (1), and in particular the first subparagraph of Article 8(9) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Annex XII to Commission Regulation (EC) No 692/2008 (2) sets out a new method for determining the CO2 emissions from and fuel consumption of N1 vehicles which are type-approved in a multi-stage process (hereinafter referred to as ‘multi-stage vehicles’). That new method is to apply from 1 January 2014 but may be applied on a voluntary basis since 1 January 2013.

(2)

Point 7 of Part B of Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 provides that the specific emissions of CO2 of completed vehicles are to be allocated to the manufacturer of the base vehicle. This requires that completed vehicles can be recognised in the monitoring process and that the manufacturer of the base vehicle can be identified. It also requires certain data relating to the base vehicle to be determined in accordance with the new methodology set out in Annex XII to Regulation (EC) No 692/2008.

(3)

The manufacturers of the base vehicles have, in accordance with Article 8(5) of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011, the right to verify the data relating to a multi-stage vehicle, on the basis of which their specific CO2 emission targets are calculated. It is therefore appropriate to lay down detailed provisions on the exchange of relevant data between the manufacturers and the Commission.

(4)

Due to the specificities and design of their vehicle registration systems, Member States may however not be able to provide all the data relevant for the monitoring of multi-stage vehicles that are indicated in the detailed data specified in Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011. As a consequence, the Commission should have the possibility to take into account data provided by manufacturers as part of the verification process pursuant to Article 8(5) of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 for determining the preliminary specific emissions targets.

(5)

Manufacturers should therefore provide the Commission and the European Environment Agency (EEA) with the vehicle identification numbers (VINs) that they assigned to light commercial vehicles sold in the preceding calendar year or for which a warranty was issued in that year. Manufacturers should also have the possibility to provide the Commission with the detailed data related to those vehicles. In order to take those data into account for the calculation of the provisional targets, manufacturers should provide their data to the Commission and the EEA at the same time as the annual data submission of the Member States.

(6)

By matching the detailed data provided by Member States with those provided by the manufacturers, based on the VINs, the Commission should prepare a provisional dataset for the calculation of the preliminary targets. The provisional dataset to be notified to a manufacturer should include the VINs for those records where the two datasets can be matched. Where necessary, the provisional dataset should also include those records where the Member States' VINs are not matched by VINs delivered by the manufacturer. In that case the records should be transmitted to the manufacturer without the VINs. The provisional dataset, with exception of the VINs, should be made public in accordance with Article 8(4) of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011.

(7)

In order to ensure full parallelism of the requirements set out in Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 293/2012 (3) with those applicable to passenger cars set out in Commission Regulation (EU) No 1014/2010 (4), it is appropriate to adapt the requirements for the notification of errors by manufacturers in accordance with the provisions of that Regulation.

(8)

Implementing Regulation (EU) No 293/2012 should be amended accordingly.

(9)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Climate Change Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Implementing Regulation (EU) No 293/2012 is amended as follows:

(1)

In Article 2, point (3) is replaced by the following:

‘(3)

“detailed monitoring data” means the detailed data specified in Section 2 of Part C of Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 which is disaggregated by manufacturer and vehicle series as defined by the type, variant and version or, where applicable, by single vehicle as defined by the vehicle identification number.’

(2)

Article 8 is replaced by the following:

‘Article 8

Vehicles not covered by EC type-approval

Where light commercial vehicles are subject to national type-approval of small series in accordance with Article 23 of Directive 2007/46/EC or to individual approvals in accordance with Article 24 of that Directive, Member States shall inform the Commission of the respective numbers of such vehicles registered in their territory.

In completing the detailed monitoring data, the competent authority shall indicate the name of the manufacturer in the column “Manufacturer name in Member State registry” in the format set out in Part C of Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011, and in the column “Manufacturer name EU standard denomination” either of the following:

(a)

“AA-IVA” for reporting vehicle types approved individually;

(b)

“AA-NSS” for reporting vehicle types approved nationally in small series.’

(3)

Article 10 is amended as follows:

(a)

In paragraph 1, the following subparagraph is added:

‘Where data is transmitted in accordance with paragraph 3 of this Article, the contact person indicated by the manufacturer shall also be given the right to upload the detailed data to the Data Repository of the European Environment Agency.’

(b)

The following paragraphs 3 and 4 are added:

‘3.   For the purpose of the verification of the provisional data, manufacturers shall submit to the Commission, at the latest by 28 February each year, the vehicle identification numbers of any light commercial vehicle (complete, completed or incomplete) they sold in the preceding calendar year in the Union, or for which they issued a warranty in that year. Manufacturers may at the same time provide the Commission with the detailed data specified in Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 relating to those vehicles.

The data shall be transmitted via electronic data transfer to the Data Repository managed by the European Environmental Agency.

4.   Where manufacturers do not submit the vehicle verification numbers and detailed data referred to in paragraph 3, the provisional specific emissions target shall be calculated on the basis of the detailed data as provided by the Member States.’

(4)

The following Articles 10a and 10b are inserted:

‘Article 10a

Notification of errors by manufacturers

1.   Manufacturers that notify errors in accordance with Article 8(5) of Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 shall use the provisional dataset notified by the Commission pursuant to Article 8(4) as a basis for their notification.

The error notification shall include all datasets relating to vehicle registrations for which the notifying manufacturer is responsible. In the case of completed vehicles, the responsible manufacturer is the manufacturer responsible for the EC type approval of the base vehicle.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 411/2014

of 23 April 2014

opening and providing for the administration of a Union import tariff quota for fresh and frozen beef and veal originating in Ukraine

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 922/72, (EEC) No 234/79, (EC) No 1037/2001 and (EC) No 1234/2007 (1), and in particular points (a), (c) and (d) of Article 187 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) provides for preferential arrangements for 2014 as regards customs duties for the import of certain goods originating in Ukraine. In accordance with Article 3 of that Regulation agricultural products listed in Annex III thereto are to be admitted for import into the Union within the limits of the quotas as set out in that Annex. The quotas referred to in Annex III to Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 are to be administered by the Commission in accordance with Article 184(2)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013.

(2)

While the quota concerned should normally be managed through the use of import licences, it is however appropriate to attribute import rights as a first step and to issue import licences as a second, as provided for in Article 6(3) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 (3). In this way, operators that have obtained import rights should be able to decide, during the quota period, the moment when they wish to apply for import licences, in view of their actual trade flows.

(3)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 376/2008 (4) and Commission Regulation (EC) No 382/2008 (5) should apply to import licences issued in accordance with this Regulation, save where derogations are appropriate.

(4)

Furthermore, the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 which concern applications for import rights, the status of applicants and the issue of import licences should apply to import licences issued pursuant to this Regulation, without prejudice to additional conditions laid down in this Regulation.

(5)

For appropriate administration of the tariff quotas, a security should be lodged at the time of submission of an import rights application.

(6)

In order to oblige operators to apply for import licences for all the import rights allocated, it should be provided that such obligation constitutes a primary requirement within the meaning of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 282/2012 (6).

(7)

Since the quotas referred to in Annex III to Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 are open only until 31 October 2014, this Regulation should enter into force as soon as possible.

(8)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for the Common Organisation of the Agricultural Markets,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Opening and management of a tariff quota

4.   Regulations (EC) No 1301/2006, (EC) No 376/2008 and (EC) No 382/2008 shall apply, unless otherwise provided for in this Regulation.

3.   Applicants for import rights shall demonstrate that a quantity of beef falling under CN codes 0201 or 0202 has been imported by them or on their behalf under the relevant customs provisions, during the 12th month period immediately prior to the import tariff quota period (hereinafter ‘reference quantity’). A company formed by the merger of companies, each having imported reference quantities, may use those reference quantities as basis for its application.

4.   The total quantity covered by applications for import rights submitted in the import tariff quota period shall not exceed the applicant's reference quantities. Applications not complying with this rule shall be rejected by the competent authorities.

5.   No later than the 7th working day following the end of the period for the submission of applications referred to in paragraph 1, Member States shall notify the Commission of the total quantities applied for in kilograms of product weight.

6.   Import rights shall be awarded as from the 7th and no later than the 12th working day following the end of the period for the notifications referred to in paragraph 5.

7.   If application of the allocation coefficient referred to in Article 7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 results in fewer import rights to be allocated than had been applied for, the security lodged in accordance with paragraph 2 shall be released proportionally without delay.

8.   Import rights shall be valid from the day of the issue until 31 October 2014. Import rights shall not be transferable.

1.   The release into free circulation of the quantities awarded under the import tariff quota referred to in Article 1(1) shall be subject to the presentation of an import licence.

2.   Import licence applications shall cover the total quantity of import rights allocated. This obligation shall constitute a primary requirement within the meaning of Article 19(2) of Regulation (EU) No 282/2012.

3.   Licence applications may be submitted solely in the Member State where the applicant has applied for and obtained import rights under the import tariff quota referred to in Article 1(1).

Each issue of import licence shall result in a corresponding reduction of the import rights obtained and the security lodged in accordance with Article 3(2) shall be released proportionally without delay.

4.   Import licences shall be issued upon application by and in the name of the operator who has obtained the import rights.

5.   Licence applications shall refer to only one order number. They may concern several products covered by different CN codes. In that case, all the CN codes and their descriptions shall be entered in boxes 15 and 16 of the licence application and the licence respectively.

7.   Each licence shall mention the quantity for each CN code.

The term of validity of the import licences shall, however, expire at the latest on 31 October 2014.

Article 5

2.   No later than 28 February 2015, Member States shall notify the Commission of the quantities of products, which were actually released into free circulation during the import tariff quota period laid down in this Regulation.

3.   In the case of the notifications referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2, the quantities shall be expressed in kilograms of product weight.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 413/2014

of 23 April 2014

opening and providing for the administration of Union import tariff quotas for poultrymeat originating in Ukraine

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 922/72, (EEC) No 234/79, (EC) No 1037/2001 and (EC) No 1234/2007 (1), and in particular points (a), (c) and (d) of Article 187 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) provides for preferential arrangements for 2014 as regards customs duties for imports of certain goods originating in Ukraine. In accordance with Article 3 of that Regulation the agricultural products listed in Annex III thereto are to be admitted for import into the Union within the limits of the tariff quotas as set out in that Annex. The quotas referred to in Annex III to that Regulation are to be administered by the Commission in accordance with Article 184(2)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013.

(2)

While the quota concerned should normally be managed through the use of import licences, it is however appropriate to attribute import rights as a first step and to issue import licences as a second, as provided for in Article 6(3) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 (3). In this way, operators that have obtained import rights should be able to decide, during the course of the quota period, the moment when they wish to apply for import licences, in view of their actual trade flows.

(3)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 376/2008 (4) should apply to import licences issued under this Regulation, save where derogations are appropriate.

(4)

Furthermore, the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 which concern applications for import rights, the status of applicants and the issue of import licences should apply to import licences issued pursuant to this Regulation, without prejudice to additional conditions laid down in this Regulation.

(5)

For appropriate administration of the tariff quotas, a security should be lodged at the time of submission of an import rights application, and at the time of issue of an import licence.

(6)

In order to oblige operators to apply for import licences for all the import rights allocated, it should be provided that such obligation constitutes a primary requirement within the meaning of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 282/2012 (5).

(7)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1001/2013 (6) has replaced some CN codes in Annex I to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 (7) by new CN codes which now differ from those referred to in Regulation (EU) No 374/2014. The new CN codes should therefore be reflected in Annex I to this Regulation.

(8)

Since the quotas referred to in Annex III to Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 are open only until 31 October 2014, this Regulation should enter into force as soon as possible.

(9)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for the Common Organisation of the Agricultural Markets,

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 414/2014

of 23 April 2014

opening and providing for the administration of Union import tariff quotas for fresh and frozen pigmeat originating in Ukraine

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 922/72, (EEC) No 234/79, (EC) No 1037/2001 and (EC) No 1234/2007 (1), and in particular points (a), (c) and (d) of Article 187 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) provides for preferential arrangements for 2014 as regards customs duties for the import of certain goods originating in Ukraine. In accordance with Article 3 of that Regulation agricultural products listed in Annex III thereto are to be admitted for import into the Union within the limits of the tariff quotas as set out in that Annex. The quotas referred to in Annex III to that Regulation are to be administered by the Commission in accordance with Article 184(2)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013.

(2)

While the quota concerned should normally be managed through the use of import licences, it is however appropriate to attribute import rights as a first step and to issue import licences as a second, as provided for in Article 6(3) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 (3). In this way, operators that have obtained import rights should be able to decide, during the course of the quota period, the moment when they wish to apply for import licences, in view of their actual trade flows.

(3)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 376/2008 (4) should apply to import licences issued under this Regulation, save where derogations are appropriate.

(4)

Furthermore, the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 which concern applications for import rights, the status of applicants and the issue of import licences, should apply to import licences issued pursuant to this Regulation, without prejudice to additional conditions laid down in this Regulation.

(5)

For appropriate administration of the tariff quotas, a security should be lodged at the time of submission of an import rights application and at the time of issue of an import licence.

(6)

In order to oblige operators to apply for import licences for all the import rights allocated, it should be provided that such obligation constitutes a primary requirement within the meaning of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 282/2012 (5).

(7)

Since the quotas referred to in Annex III to Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 are open only until 31 October 2014, this Regulation should enter into force as soon as possible.

(8)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for the Common Organisation of the Agricultural Markets,

7.   If application of the allocation coefficient referred to in Article 7(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 results in fewer import rights to be allocated than had been applied for, the security lodged in accordance with paragraph 2 shall be released proportionally without delay.

8.   Import rights shall be valid from the day of the issue until 31 October 2014. Import rights shall not be transferable.

(b)

in box 20, one of the entries listed in Annex II.

The quotas referred to in Annex III to Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 are to be administered by the Commission in accordance with Article 184(2)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013.

(2)

Annex III to Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 includes tariff quotas for milk and milk products. It is necessary to include those quotas in Annex I to Commission Regulation (EC) No 2535/2001 (3) and to insert in Article 19 of that Regulation a reference to the relevant rule on the proof of origin which is required to import under those quotas.

(3)

Since the quotas referred to in Annex III to Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 are open only until 31 October 2014, the period of lodging import licence applications and the period of validity of import licences should be specified.

(4)

According to Article 10(1) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 2535/2001, importers approved in May 2013 can import under quotas only during the period from 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014. As the quotas opened for Ukraine are exceptionally running over two consecutive six-months periods, approved importers could only import until 30 June 2014 whilst the concerned quotas are open until 31 October 2014. It is therefore appropriate to enable those importers to import under the quotas referred to in Annex III to Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 until 31 October 2014.

(5)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1001/2013 (4), has replaced some CN codes in Annex I to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 (5) by new CN codes which now differ from those referred to in Regulation (EU) No 374/2014. The new CN codes should therefore be reflected in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 2535/2001.

(6)

Regulation (EC) No 2535/2001 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

Since the quotas referred to in Annex III to Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 are open only until 31 October 2014, this Regulation should enter into force as soon as possible.

(8)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for the Common Organisation of the Agricultural Markets,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Regulation (EC) No 2535/2001 is amended as follows:

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 416/2014

of 23 April 2014

opening and providing for the administration of import tariff quotas for certain cereals originating in Ukraine

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 922/72, (EEC) No 234/79, (EC) No 1037/2001 and (EC) No 1234/2007 (1), and in particular Article 187(a) and (c) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) provides, inter alia, for the opening of import tariff quotas for certain cereals originating in Ukraine until 31 October 2014. The tariff quotas for the agricultural products referred to in Annex III to that Regulation are administered by the Commission pursuant to the rules laid down in accordance with Article 184(2)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013.

(2)

To ensure that imports of cereals originating in Ukraine within these tariff quotas are orderly and not speculative, they should be made subject to the issue of import licences. Therefore Regulations (EC) No 1301/2006 (3), (EC) No 1342/2003 (4) and (EC) No 376/2008 (5) should apply, without prejudice to any derogations provided for by this Regulation.

(3)

To ensure the proper management of these quotas, deadlines for the submission of import licence applications should be laid down and the information to be included in applications and licences should be specified.

(4)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1006/2011 (6) replaced the CN codes of the cereals referred to in Annex I to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 (7) by new codes that differ from the codes referred to in Regulation (EU) No 374/2014. Annex I to this Regulation should therefore refer to the new CN codes.

(5)

As the quotas referred to in Annex III to Regulation (EU) No 374/2014 are open only until 31 October 2014, this Regulation should enter into force as soon as possible.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for the Common Organisation of Agricultural Markets,

Validity of import licences

In accordance with Article 22(2) of Regulation (EC) No 376/2008, the period of validity of the import licence shall be calculated from the actual date of issue.

The period of validity of the import licence is the period defined in Article 6(1)(b) of Regulation (EC) No 1342/2003. In any event, the period of validity expires on 31 October 2014 at the latest.
