COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1460/2005
of 8 September 2005
amending Council Regulation (EC) No 747/2001 as regards Community tariff quotas and reference quantities for certain products originating in Algeria
THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,
Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,
Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 747/2001 of 9 April 2001 providing for the management of Community tariff quotas and of reference quantities for products eligible for preferences by virtue of agreements with certain Mediterranean countries and repealing Regulations (EC) No 1981/94 and (EC) No 934/95 (1), and in particular Article 5(1)(b) thereof,
Whereas:

(1)

By its Decision of 18 July 2005 (2), the Council approved the Euro-Mediterranean Agreement establishing an Association between the European Community and its Member States, of the one part, and the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria, of the other part.

(2)

That Agreement provides, for certain products originating in Algeria, for tariff concessions that apply within the limits of Community tariff quotas and in the framework of reference quantities.

(3)

To implement the tariff quotas and reference quantities, it is necessary to amend Regulation (EC) No 747/2001.

(4)

Because Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3590/85 of 18 December 1985 on the certificate and analysis report required for the importation of wine, grape juice and grape must (3) was repealed by Commission Regulation (EC) No 883/2001 of 24 April 2001 laying down detailed rules for implementing Council Regulation (EC) No 1493/1999 as regards trade with third countries in products in the wine sector (4), the reference in Regulation (EC) No 747/2001 to Regulation (EEC) No 3590/85 should, for reasons of clarity, be replaced by a new reference to Regulation (EC) No 883/2001.

(5)

For the year 2005 the volumes of the new tariff quotas should be calculated as a pro rata of the basic volumes specified in the Agreement, in proportion to the part of the period elapsed before the date of entry into force of the Agreement.

(6)

In order to facilitate the management for the year 2005 of the two tariff quotas already existing in Regulation (EC) No 747/2001 for wines originating in Algeria, the quantities imported within the framework of those quotas should be charged against the corresponding tariff quotas opened in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 747/2001, as amended by this Regulation.

(7)

Since the Agreement applies from 1 September 2005, this Regulation should apply from the same date.

(8)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Customs Code Committee,
HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
Article 1
Regulation (EC) No 747/2001 is amended as follows:

1.

2.

It shall apply with effect from 1 September 2005.
