of 9 April 1990

laying down detailed rules for the application of the arrangements applicable to imports of certain pigmeat products originating in the ACP States or in the overseas countries and territories (OCT)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 715/90 of 5 March 1990 concerning the arrangements applied to agricultural products and certain goods resulting from the processing of agricultural goods originating in the ACP States or in the overseas countries and territories (OCT) (1), and in particular Article 27 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2759/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common organization of the market in pigmeat (2), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1249/89 (3), and in particular Article 22 thereof,

Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 715/90 in particular introduces arrangements for reducing import levies on certain products in the pigmeat sectors within the limit of a quota; whereas detailed rules for the application of that Regulation should be adopted as regards the pigmeat products concerned with a view to administering the quota concerned; whereas those detailed rules are either supplementary to or derogate from Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88 of 16 November 1988 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance fixing certificates for agricultural products (4), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1903/89 (5);
