COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 1514/76 of 24 June 1976 on imports of olive oil originating in Algeria

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Articles 43 and 113 thereof,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (1),

Whereas the Cooperation Agreement between the European Economic Community and the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria and the Interim Agreement (2) on the advance implementation of certain provisions of the Cooperation Agreement relating to trade in goods were signed on 26 April 1976;

Whereas Articles 16 and 17 of the Cooperation Agreement and Annex B thereto and Articles 9 and 10 of the Interim Agreement and Annex B thereto provide for special arrangements for imports of olive oil falling within subheading 15.07 A of the Common Customs Tariff, wholly obtained in Algeria and transported direct from that country to the Community ; whereas the implementation of these arrangements requires that implementing rules be adopted, particularly as regards oil falling within subheading 15.07 A II;

Whereas, provided that Algeria levies a special charge on exports of oil falling within subheading 15.07 A II, the said special arrangements provide for a standard abatement of 0 750 unit of account per 100 kilogrammes of the levy applicable to such oil and a reduction of the said levy by an amount equal to the special charge, but not exceeding: - 10 units of account per 100 kilogrammes, representing the reduction provided for in Article 16 (1) (b) of the Cooperation Agreement or in Article 9 of the Interim Agreement;

- 10 units of account per 100 kilogrammes, representing the additional amount provided for in Annex B to the Cooperation Agreement or to the Interim Agreement;

Whereas, in accordance with the Cooperation Agreement and the Interim Agreement, the special charge on exports should be reflected in the price of the oil upon importation into the Community ; whereas in order to ensure the correct application of the arrangements in question, the necessary measures should be adopted to ensure that the special charge on exports is paid at the latest when the oil is imported,
