COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1293/1999

of 18 June 1999

on the issuing of import licences for bananas under the tariff quotas and for traditional ACP bananas for the third quarter of 1999 and on the submission of new applications

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 404/93 of 13 February 1993 on the common organisation of the market in bananas(1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1637/98(2), and in particular Article 20 thereof,

(1) Whereas Commission Regulation (EC) No 2362/98(3), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 756/1999(4) lays down detailed rules for the implementation of Regulation (EEC) No 404/93 regarding imports of bananas into the Community;

(2) Whereas Article 17 of Regulation (EC) No 2362/98 lays down that where, in the case of a given quarter and for any one or more of the origins listed in Annex I, the quantities applied for appreciably exceed any indicative quantity fixed under Article 14, or exceed the quantities available, a percentage reduction to be applied to the amounts requested shall be fixed;

(3) Whereas in application of Article 14(1) of Regulation (EC) No 2362/98, indicative quantities for the issuing of import licences have been fixed for the third quarter of 1999 by Commission Regulation (EC) No 1031/1999(5);

(4) Whereas, in the case of the quantities applied for that are either less than or do not appreciably exceed the indicative quantities fixed for the given quarter, import licences are issued for the quantities applied for; whereas, however, for certain origins, the quantities applied for appreciably exceed the indicative quantities; whereas, therefore, a percentage reduction must be fixed to apply to each licence application for the origin or origins involved;

(5) Whereas the maximum quantity for which such licence applications may still be submitted should be determined under Article 18 of Regulation (EC) No 2362/98, taking into account the applications accepted at the end of the first application period and the available quantities;

(6) Whereas this Regulation should apply immediately to permit licences to be issued as quickly as possible;

(7) Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Bananas,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
