Commission Regulation (EC) No 1402/2001

of 10 July 2001

on the issuing of reallocation licences for unused quantities covered by licences issued for bananas imports under the tariff quotas for the first and second quarters of 2001

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 216/2001(2), and in particular Article 20 thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Commission Regulation (EC) No 896/2001(3), lays down the new detailed rules, applicable from 1 July 2001, for applying Regulation (EEC) No 404/93 as regards the management of the tariff import quotas provided for in Article 18(1) of the latter Regulation.

(2) With a view to a smooth switchover from the detailed rules laid down in Commission Regulation (EC) No 2362/98(4), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1632/2000(5), for the period 1 January 1999 to 30 June 2001, to the new detailed rules laid down in Regulation (EC) No 896/2001 for managing the tariff quotas, provision should be made for reallocation licences to be issued, in accordance with conditions laid down herein, for unused quantities covered by licences issued during the first two quarters of 2001. To the same end and for ease of management, the term of validity of such reallocation licences should be longer than the normal term for import licences.

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
