Products not covered by a specific CMO

This common market organisation (CMO) governs trade in certain products not covered by other CMOs. These include a range of animal and plant products and certain residues and waste from the food industries.

ACT

Regulation (EEC) No 827/68 of the Council of 28 June 1968 on the common organisation of the market in certain products listed in Annex II to the Treaty [See amending Acts].

SUMMARY

This Regulation has been repealed and, as of 1 July 2008, products falling within its scope are governed by the common organisation of agricultural markets.

This Regulation establishes a common market organisation (CMO) for most products not already covered by a CMO. These products are listed by their tariff nomenclature in the former Annex II to the Treaty, which became Annex I following the amendments introduced by the Treaty of Amsterdam.

Trade with non-member countries

Customs duties are levied on the products covered by this Regulation. These products are classed in accordance with the general rules for interpreting the combined nomenclature and the rules for its application.

All barriers to trade with non-member countries are prohibited, particularly charges having an effect equivalent to customs duty and quantitative restrictions on imports or equivalent measures.

Safeguard measures may be adopted if the market is threatened with disturbance as a result of imports or exports.

Trade within the Community

Charges having an effect equivalent to customs duty and quantitative restrictions on imports or equivalent measures are prohibited in trade within the Community.

Subject to authorisation by the Commission, aid for the production and marketing of reindeer and reindeer products may be granted to Sweden and Finland.
