COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 225/97 of 6 February 1997 amending Regulation (EC) No 1294/96 laying down detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EEC) No 822/87 as regards harvest, production and stock declarations relating to wine-sector products
THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,
Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,
Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 822/87 of 16 March 1987 on the common organization of the market in wine (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1592/96 (2), and in particular Articles 3 (4), 36 (6), 39 (7) and 81 thereof,

Whereas checks on Article 1 of Regulation (EC) No 1294/96 have revealed differences between the various language versions as compared with the definition in force prior to that Regulation; whereas it should be stipulated that the harvest declaration is to be submitted by the producer of the grapes; whereas, consequently, this should be indicated to avoid any ambiguity;
Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Wine,
HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
Article 1 (1) of Regulation (EC) No 1294/96 is hereby replaced by the following:
'1.

Member States may, where appropriate, authorize the presentation of one declaration per holding.`
This Regulation shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.
It shall apply from 2 September 1996.
This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.
Done at Brussels, 6 February 1997.
