COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 937/96 of 24 May 1996 amending Regulation (EC) No 1600/95 laying down detailed rules for the application of the import arrangements and opening tariff quotas for milk and milk products and amending Regulation (EC) No 1474/95 opening and providing for the administration of the tariff quotas in the egg sector and for egg albumin resulting from the Agreements concluded during the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 804/68 of 27 June 1968 on the common organization of the market in milk and milk products (1), as last amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No 2931/95 (2), and in particular Article 16 (4) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2771/75 of 29 October 1975, on the common organization of the market in eggs (3), as last amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No 2916/95 (4), and in particular Article 6 (1) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2783/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common system of trade for ovalbumin and lactalbumin (5), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2916/95, and in particular Article 4 (1) thereof,

Whereas Commission Regulation (EC) No 1600/95 (6), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 876/96 (7), provides in Article 14 that, for the quarter running from 1 April to 30 June 1996, licence applications in the framework of non-country-specific tariff quotas can be lodged only within a 10-day period beginning on 27 May;

Whereas the agreements that are concluded by the Community in the framework of the Article XXIV (6) GATT negotiations (8), will result in a reduction of the quantities that may be imported under some of these quotas in the present quota year; whereas it is appropriate in order to avoid exceeding these quotas to postpone the date for submission of licence applications for the fourth quarter until such date as the quantities have been finally established; whereas it is therefore necessary to amend Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 1600/95;

Whereas Commission Regulation (EC) No 1474/95 (9), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 876/96, provides in Article 5 that, for the quarter running from 1 April to 30 June 1996, applications for import licences shall be submitted only within a period of 10 days commencing on 27 May; whereas the considerations set out above should also lead to a postponement of this delay until such time as the quantities resulting from the Article XXIV (6) GATT negotiations have been finally established; whereas it is therefore necessary to amend Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 1474/95;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
