Commission Regulation (EC) No 1010/2001

of 23 May 2001

concerning the minimum quality requirements for mixed fruit under the production aid scheme

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 of 28 October 1996 on the common organisation of the markets in processed fruit and vegetable products(1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2699/2000(2), and in particular Article 6(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 provides for a system of aid for producer organisations delivering peaches or pears for processing into products listed in Annex I to that Regulation.

(2) Mixtures of fruit in syrup and in natural fruit juice were added to the above Annex by Regulation (EC) No 2699/2000. The minimum quality requirements for those products should be defined on the basis of traditional and fair production methods and with the purpose of avoiding the production of products for which there is no demand or which would distort the market.

(3) The quality requirements defined in this Regulation constitute implementing measures in addition to Commission Regulations (EEC) No 2319/89(3) and (EEC) No 2320/89(4), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 996/2001(5), laying down minimum quality requirements for, respectively, Williams and Rocha pears and peaches in syrup and in natural fruit juice eligible for the production aid scheme, and to Commission Regulation (EC) No 449/2001 of 2 March 2001 laying down rules for applying Council Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 as regards the aid scheme for products processed from fruit and vegetables(6).

(4) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Products Processed from Fruit and Vegetables,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

3. Where the mixed fruit is packed in glass containers the water capacity shall be reduced by 20 millilitres before the percentages referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 are calculated.

Article 4

1. The processor shall daily and at regular intervals during the processing period verify that the mixed fruit satisfies the conditions required under this Regulation and shall record the results of the verification.

2. All containers shall be marked with a reference identifying the processor and the production date. The marking, which may be in code form, shall be approved by the competent authorities of the Member State where production takes place. Those authorities may adopt additional provisions relating to the marking.

Article 5

This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following its publication in the Official journal of the European Communities.
