THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

(7)

The maximum amount of Community contribution to the financing of work programmes drawn up by certified organisations of operators in the olive oil sector should be set, according to the coefficient applied to the amount withheld under Article 110(i)(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003, notified by the Member States concerned.

(8)
