Whereas, on the basis of the same data, the authorized quantity referred to in Article 9 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 1442/93 which operators in categories A and B can apply for in respect of the third quarter of 1997 should be fixed;

Whereas the indicative quantities provided for in Article 14 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 1442/93 for the purposes of issuing import licences for traditional imports from ACP States should also be fixed;

Whereas this Regulation must enter into force prior to the period for the submission of licence applications in respect of the third quarter of 1997;
