COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 241/2005
of 11 February 2005
amending Council Regulation (EC) No 747/2001 as regards Community tariff quotas for certain products originating in Israel
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 31 January 2005 (2), the Council has given authorisation for the signing and has provided for the provisional application from 1 May 2004 of a Protocol to the Euro-Mediterranean Agreement between the European Communities and their Member States, of the one part, and the State of Israel, of the other part, to take account of the accession of the Czech Republic, the Republic of Estonia, the Republic of Cyprus, the Republic of Hungary, the Republic of Latvia, the Republic of Lithuania, the Republic of Malta, the Republic of Poland, the Republic of Slovenia, and the Slovak Republic to the European Union.

(2)

This Protocol provides for new tariff quotas and for changes to the existing tariff quotas laid down in Regulation (EC) No 747/2001.

(3)

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

(4)

For the year 2004 the volumes of the new tariff quotas and the increases of the volumes of existing tariff quotas should be calculated as a pro rata of the basic volumes specified in the Protocol, taking into account the part of the period elapsed before 1 May 2004.

(5)

In order to facilitate the management of certain existing tariff quotas provided for in Regulation (EC) No 747/2001, the quantities imported within the framework of those quotas should be taken into account for charging on the tariff quotas opened in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 747/2001, as amended by this Regulation.

(6)

Since the Protocol to the EU-Israel Euro-Mediterranean Agreement applies on a provisional basis from 1 May 2004, this Regulation should apply from the same date and should enter into force as soon as possible.

(7)

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