Corrigendum to Commission Regulation (EC) No 1961/2006 of 20 December 2006 amending Regulation (EC) No 1396/98 laying down procedures for applying in the poultrymeat sector Council Regulation (EC) No 779/98 on the import into the Community of agricultural products originating in Turkey

( Official Journal of the European Union L 408 of 30 December 2006 )

Regulation (EC) No 1961/2006 should read as follows:

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1961/2006

of 20 December 2006

amending Regulation (EC) No 1396/98 laying down procedures for applying in the poultrymeat sector Council Regulation (EC) No 779/98 on the import into the Community of agricultural products originating in Turkey

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 3 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 779/98 of 7 April 1998 on the import into the Community of agricultural products originating in Turkey, repealing Regulation (EEC) No 4115/86 and amending Regulation (EC) No 3010/95 (2),

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1396/98 (3) lays down procedures for applying in the poultrymeat sector Council Regulation (EC) No 779/98 on the import into the Community of agricultural products originating in Turkey.

(2)

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 (4) applies to import licences for the import tariff quota periods from 1 January 2007. Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 lays down in particular rules on applications for import licences, the status of applicants and the issue of licences. It limits the validity of the licences to the final day of the tariff quota period. Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006 must apply to import licences issued under Regulation (EC) No 1396/98, save as otherwise provided for in that Regulation. It is therefore necessary to bring Regulation (EC) No 1396/98 into line with Regulation (EC) No 1301/2006, where appropriate.

(3)

In view of the accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the European Union on 1 January 2007, provision must be made to add entries on the licence applications and the licences themselves in Bulgarian and Romanian.

(4)

Regulation (EC) No 1396/98 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)
