THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,
Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,
Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 518/92 of 27 February 1992 on certain procedures for applying the Interim Agreement on trade and trade-related matters between the European Economic Community and the European Coal and Steel Community, of the one part, and the Republic of Poland, of the other part (1), and in particular Article 1 thereof,
Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 519/92 of 27 February 1992 on certain procedures for applying the Interim Agreement on trade and trade-related matters between the European Economic Community and the European Coal and Steel Community, of the one part, and the Republic of Hungary, of the other part (2), and in particular Article 1 thereof,
Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 520/92 of 27 February 1992 on certain procedures for applying the Interim Agreement on trade and trade-related matters between the European Economic Community and the European Coal and Steel Community, of the one part, and the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic, of the other part (3), and in particular Article 1 thereof,
Whereas the said Regulations introduce arrangements for reducing import levies on certain products, including milk and milk products; whereas detailed rules of application should be adopted with a view to administering the arrangements concerned; whereas those detailed rules are either supplementary to, or derogate from, Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88 of 16 November 1988 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance fixing certificates for agricultural products (4), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1599/90 (5);
Whereas, in order to ensure proper administration of imports, a security should be required for applications for import licences and certain conditions be laid down as regards applications for licences; whereas the fixed amounts should be staggered over the year and the procedure for awarding licences as well as their term of validity should be specified;
Whereas continuous access to the said fixed amount should be ensured for all Community importers and the reduced levy should be applied consistently to all imports of the product in question in all the Member States until the fixed amounts are exhausted; whereas the necessary measures should be taken to ensure efficient Community administration of these fixed amounts and, because of the risk of speculation in particular, access of these importers to the said scheme should be subject to compliance with specific conditions; whereas this method of administration requires close cooperation between the Member States and the Commission;
Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Milk and Milk Products,
HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
