COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1384/2007

of 26 November 2007

laying down detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EC) No 2398/96 as regards opening and providing for the administration of certain quotas for imports into the Community of poultrymeat products originating in Israel

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2777/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common organisation of the market in poultrymeat (1), and in particular Article 6(1) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2398/96 of 12 December 1996 opening a tariff quota for turkey meat originating in and coming from Israel as provided for in the Association Agreement and the Interim Agreement between the European Community and the State of Israel (2), and in particular Article 2 thereof,

Having regard to Council Decision 2003/917/EC of 22 December 2003 on the conclusion of an Agreement in the form of an Exchange of Letters between the European Community and the State of Israel concerning reciprocal liberalisation measures and the replacement of the EC-Israel Association Agreement (3), and in particular Article 2 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 2497/96 of 18 December 1996 laying down rules for the application in the poultrymeat sector of the system provided for by the Association Agreement and the Interim Agreement between the European Community and the State of Israel (4) has been substantially amended several times and requires further amendment. Regulation (EC) No 2497/96 should therefore be repealed and replaced by a new regulation.

(2)

The tariff quotas should be administered on the basis of import licences. To that end, detailed rules for the submission of applications and the information which must appear in applications and licences should be laid down.

(3)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1291/2000 of 9 June 2000 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance fixing certificates for agricultural products (5) and Commission Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 of 31 August 2006 laying down common rules for the administration of import tariff quotas for agricultural products managed by a system of import licences (6) should apply, save as otherwise provided for in this Regulation.

(4)

In order to ensure a regular flow of imports, the quota period running from 1 January to 31 December should be subdivided into several subperiods. In any event, under Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 licences are valid only up to and including the last day of the tariff quota period.

(5)

In view of the risk of speculation inherent in the system in the poultrymeat sector, clear conditions should be laid down as regards access for operators to the tariff quota scheme.

(6)

For appropriate administration of the tariff quotas, the security linked to the import licences should be set at EUR 20 per 100 kilograms.

(7)

In the interests of the operators, the Commission should determine the quantities that have not been applied for, which will be added to the next quota subperiod in accordance with Article 7(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006.

(8)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1.   The tariff quotas in Annex I are opened by Regulation (EC) No 2398/96 for the import of poultrymeat products under the CN codes indicated therein.

The tariff quotas shall be open on an annual basis for the period from 1 January to 31 December.

2.   The quantity of products covered by the quotas referred to in paragraph 1, the applicable reduction in customs duty, the serial numbers and the group numbers shall be as set out in Annex I.

Article 2

The provisions of Regulations (EC) No 1291/2000 and (EC) No 1301/2006 shall apply, save as otherwise provided for in this Regulation.

Article 3

The quantity fixed for the annual quota period for each serial number shall be divided among four subperiods, as follows:

(a)

25 % from 1 January to 31 March;

(b)

25 % from 1 April to 30 June;

(c)

25 % from 1 July to 30 September;

2.   Licence applications shall mention only one of the serial numbers indicated in Annex I. They may concern several products covered by different CN codes. If they do, all the CN codes and their designations must be entered in boxes 16 and 15 of the licence application and the licence respectively.

Licence applications must be for a minimum of 10 tonnes and a maximum of 10 % of the quantity available for the quota concerned in the subperiod in question.

3.   The licences shall carry an obligation to import from Israel.

Licence applications and licences themselves shall contain:

(a)

in box 8, the country of origin and the entry ‘yes’ marked by a cross;

(b)

in box 20, one of the entries indicated in Annex II, Part A.

Box 24 of the licence shall contain one of the entries indicated in Annex II, Part B.

Article 5

1.   Licence applications may be submitted only in the first seven days of the month preceding each of the subperiods referred to in Article 3.

2.   A security of EUR 20 per 100 kilograms shall be lodged when an application for a licence is submitted.

3.   Not later than the fifth day following the end of the period for submission of applications, Member States shall notify the Commission of the total quantities, in kilograms, applied for in respect of each group.

4.   Licences shall be issued as of the seventh working day and at the latest by the eleventh working day following the end of the notification period provided for in paragraph 3.

5.   If necessary, the Commission shall establish any quantities that have not been applied for, and these shall be added automatically to the quantity for the following quota subperiod.

Article 6

1.   By way of derogation from the second subparagraph of Article 11(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006, Member States shall notify the Commission by the end of the first month of each quota subperiod of the total quantities, in kilograms, for which licences have been issued, as referred to in Article 11(1)(b) of that Regulation.

2.   Member States shall notify the Commission, before the end of the fourth month following each annual quota period, of the quantities, in kilograms, under each serial number actually released for free circulation under this Regulation in the period concerned.

3.   By way of derogation from the second subparagraph of Article 11(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006, Member States shall notify the Commission of the quantities, in kilograms, to which unused or partially used import licences relate, first when the application for the last subperiod is sent, and again before the end of the fourth month following each annual period.

Article 7

1.   By way of derogation from Article 23 of Regulation (EC) No 1291/2000, import licences shall be valid for 150 days from the first day of the subperiod for which they are issued.

2.   Without prejudice to Article 9(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1291/2000, the rights deriving from the licences may be transferred only to transferees satisfying the eligibility conditions set out in Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 and Article 4(1) of this Regulation.

Article 8

The imported products shall be released for free circulation on presentation of a proof of origin in accordance with Article 16 of Protocol 4 annexed to the Euro-Mediterranean Agreement establishing an association between the European Communities and their Member States, of the one part, and the State of Israel, of the other part.

Article 9

Regulation (EC) No 2497/96 is hereby repealed.

References to the repealed Regulation shall be construed as references to this Regulation and shall be read in accordance with the correlation table in Annex III.
