NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
EU regulation 128/2015:
On 27 January 2015, the European Commission announced regulation 128/2015 implementing larger pigmeat tariff quotas for the period between 1 April and 30 June 2015. The quantities were raised, since "the quantities covered by import licence applications lodged from 1 to 7 December 2014 for the subperiod 1 January to 31 March 2015 are smaller than those available" (preamble to the regulation).
The added quota totalled nearly 30 million kg of pigmeat.
The regulation came into force on 28 January 2015.
