COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 641/92 of 13 March 1992 on rules of application of Council Regulation (EEC) No 478/92 for annual Community tariff quotas of dog or cat food and fish food, originating in, and coming from the Faroe Islands

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 478/92 of 25 February 1992 opening an annual Community tariff quota for dog or cat food, put up for retail sale and falling within CN code 2309 10 11 and an annual Community tariff quota for fish food falling within CN code ex 2309 90 41, originating in the Faroe Islands (1), and in particular Article 2 thereof,

Whereas all Community importers should have access to the annual quotas of 1 000 tonnes of dog or cat food and 5 000 of fish food and an import levy of ECU 0 per tonne should be applied without interruption each year until the quotas are exhausted;

Whereas this will require close cooperation between the Member Sates and the Commission, which must be able, in particular, to monitor the depletion of the quotas and inform the Member States accordingly;

Whereas provision should be made for import licences for the products in question and within the framework of the said quantities to be issued after a reflection period and subject to, where appropriate, a uniform percentage reduction in the quantities applied for;

Whereas, in particular, the origin of products should be ensured by making the issue of import licences conditional on presentation of documents made out by the authorities of the Faroe Islands;

Whereas the information to be included in applications for licences and the licences themselves, by way of derogation from Articles 8 and 21 of 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 (2), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1599/90 (3) should be laid down;

Whereas efficient management of the quotas requires the security for import licences to be set at ECU 25 per tonne, by way of derogation from Article 12 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 891/89 of 5 April 1989 on special detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences for cereals and rice (4), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 337/92 (5);
