COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 254/2008

of 18 March 2008

on the issuing of import licences for applications lodged during the first seven days of March 2008 under the tariff quota opened by Regulation (EC) No 1384/2007 for poultrymeat

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),

Having regard to 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 (2), and in particular Article 7(2) thereof,

Having regard to 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 the opening and providing for the administration of certain quotas for imports into the Community of poultrymeat products originating in Israel (3), and in particular Article 5(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The applications for import licences lodged (under the quota bearing the serial number 09.4092) during the first seven days of March 2008 for the subperiod 1 April to 30 June 2008 relate to quantities exceeding those available. The quantities for which licences may be issued should therefore be determined by setting the allocation coefficient by which the quantities applied for are to be multiplied.

(2)

The applications for import licences lodged (under the quota bearing the serial number 09.4091) during the first seven days of March 2008 for the subperiod 1 April to 30 June 2008 do not cover the total quantities available. The quantities for which applications have not been lodged should therefore be determined, and these should be added to the quantity fixed for the following quota subperiod,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1.   The quantities for which import licence applications have been lodged for the subperiod 1 April to 30 June 2008 under Regulation (EC) No 1384/2007 shall be multiplied by the allocation coefficients set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

2.   The quantities for which applications have not been lodged, to be added to the quantity fixed for the subperiod 1 July to 30 September 2008, shall be as set out in the Annex.

Done at Brussels, 18 March 2008.
