COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 909/2010

of 11 October 2010

establishing the allocation coefficient to be applied to applications for export licences for cheese to be exported to the United States of America in 2011 under certain GATT quotas

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 of 22 October 2007 establishing a common organisation of agricultural markets and on specific provisions for certain agricultural products (Single CMO Regulation) (1),

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EC) No 1187/2009 of 27 November 2009 laying down special detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 as regards export licences and export refunds for milk and milk products (2), and in particular Article 23(1) and (3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EU) No 635/2010 of 19 July 2010 opening the procedure for the allocation of export licences for cheese to be exported to the United States of America in 2011 under certain GATT quotas (3) opens the procedure for the allocation of export licences for cheese to be exported to the United States of America in 2011 under the GATT quotas referred to in Article 21 of Regulation (EC) No 1187/2009.

(2)

Applications for export licences for certain quotas and product groups exceed the quantities available for the 2011 quota year. Allocation coefficients as provided for in Article 23(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1187/2009 should therefore be established.

(3)

In the case of product groups and quotas for which the applications lodged are for quantities less than those available, it is appropriate, in accordance with Article 23(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1187/2009, to provide for the allocation of the remaining quantities to the applicants in proportion to the quantities applied for. The allocation of such further quantities should be conditional upon the competent authority being notified of the quantities accepted by the operator concerned and upon the interested operators lodging a security.

(4)

Given the time limit for carrying out the procedure for establishing those coefficients, as provided for in Article 4 of Regulation (EU) No 635/2010, this Regulation should apply as soon as possible,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1
