Whereas the purchase of certain quantities of poultrymeat products in the Community by Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Albania, Angola and Iran should be facilitated; whereas, to this end, provision should be made for the grant of a special export refund for those destinations, provided that certain conditions are met;

Whereas provision should be made whereby refunds are fixed in advance for control purposes and, notwithstanding Article 1 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3652/81 of 18 December 1981 laying down special detailed rules for the application of the system of certificates of advance fixing of refunds in the poultrymeat sector (3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1617/94 (4), the amount of the security should be increased and access of operators to this measure should be made subject to specific conditions in order to prevent speculative applications; whereas it is appropriate to fix a deadline for the lodging of advance-fixing applications in order to accelerate the operations;

Whereas it is appropriate to provide for the necessary measures to ensure, in view of budgetary constraints, adherence to the total quantity of 40 000 tonnes and to lay down the details concerning the lodging of the advance-fixing applications and the delivery of certificates;

Whereas it is appropriate, in the interest of the operators, to provide for the option of withdrawing the application for certificates after the fixing of a coefficient of reduction;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Poultrymeat and Eggs,

- decide to stop the delivery of certificates,

- decide that applications lodged after a certain date shall not be accepted,

- set a single percentage by which the quantities in the applications lodged after a certain date, are accepted. Where this percentage is less than 50 % the Commission may decide not to award the quantities applied for, and to release the securities.

Where the Commission makes use of the option provided for in the first sentence of the third indent of Article 3, the exporter may withdraw his request for certificates within ten working days after the publication of the single percentage of acceptance in the Official Journal of the European Communities, if the application of this rate leads to the fixing of a quantity of less than 20 tonnes. The corresponding security shall be released immediately.
