THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 100 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas, in pursuance of the first paragraph of Article 2 of Council Decision 69/414/EEC of 13 November 1969 setting up a Standing Committee for Foodstuffs (1), the latter carries out the duties devolving upon it under provisions in the foodstuffs sector adopted by the Council, in the cases and under the conditions provided for therein;

Whereas, apart from its advisory role, the Committee has the task of ensuring close cooperation between the Member States and the Commission in cases where the Council confers powers on the latter for the purpose of implementing the rules which it establishes;

Whereas most of the provisions adopted by the Council have assigned to the Committee duties, in the sector to which they relate, to be carried out within a period of 18 months;

Whereas the purpose of setting this time limit was to check, in legislative practice, whether the procedure for involving the Committee gave satisfaction; whereas for the same purpose the said time limit should be extended by two years,
