COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1324/2007

of 12 November 2007

amending Regulation (EC) No 2535/2001 laying down detailed rules for applying Council Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 as regards the import arrangements for milk and milk products and opening tariff quotas

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in milk and milk products (1), and in particular Article 26(3) and Article 29(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Pursuant to Article 14(1) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 2535/2001 (2), import licence applications for quotas managed according to the provisions of Chapter I of Title 2 of that Regulation may only be lodged during the first 10 days of each six-month period. No effective imports can be carried out during the application periods and until the Commission has determined the extent to which licences shall be issued according to Article 7(2) of 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 (3). In order to enable imports to take place as from the beginning of the quota subperiods, it is appropriate to anticipate the licence applications periods and to adapt the provisions concerned, including those on the communication of approved importers.

(2)

Regulation (EC) No 2535/2001 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(3)

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