Commission Regulation (EC) No 142/2004 of 28 January 2004 opening a standing invitation to tender for the resale on the Community market of barley held by the Belgian intervention agency

Official Journal L 024 , 29/01/2004 P. 0032 - 0033


Commission Regulation (EC) No 142/2004

of 28 January 2004

opening a standing invitation to tender for the resale on the Community market of barley held by the Belgian intervention agency

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1766/92 of 30 June 1992 on the common organisation of the market in cereals(1), and in particular Article 5 thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2131/93 of 28 July 1998 laying down the procedure and conditions for the sale of cereals held by intervention agencies(2) provides in particular that cereals held by intervention agencies are to be sold by tendering procedure at prices preventing market disturbance.

(2) Belgium still has intervention stocks of barley.

(3) Because of the difficult weather conditions in much of the Community, cereals production has been significantly reduced in the 2003/04 marketing year. This situation has resulted in high prices locally, causing particular difficulties for livestock holdings and the feedingstuffs industry, which are finding it hard to obtain supplies at competitive prices.

(4) It is therefore appropriate to make stocks of barley held by the Belgian intervention agency available on the internal market. The period of presentation of the offers for the last partial invitation to tender under Commission Regulation (EC) No 1517/2003(3) having expired on 18 December 2003, it is advisable to open a new standing invitation to tender.

(5) To take account of the situation on the Community market, provision should be made for the Commission to manage this invitation to tender.

(6) When the Belgian intervention agency notifies the Commission, the tenderers should remain anonymous.

(7) With a view to modernising management, the information required by the Commission should be sent by electronic mail.

(8) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Cereals,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The Belgian intervention agency shall open a standing invitation to tender for the sale on the Community market of 8343 tonnes of barley held by it.

Article 2

The sale provided for in Article 1 shall take place in accordance with Regulation (EEC) No 2131/93.

However, notwithstanding that Regulation:

(a) tenders shall be drawn up on the basis of the actual quality of the lot to which they apply;

(b) the minimum selling price shall be set at a level which does not disturb the cereals market.

Article 3

Notwithstanding Article 13(4) of Regulation (EEC) No 2131/93 the tender security is set at EUR 10 per tonne.

Article 4

1. The closing date for the submission of tenders for the first partial invitation to tender shall be 5 February 2004 at 09.00 (Brussels time).

The closing dates for the submission of tenders for subsequent partial invitations to tender shall be each Thursday at 09.00 (Brussels time), with the exception of 8 April and 20 May 2004.

The closing date for the submission of tenders for the last partial tendering procedure shall be 24 June 2004 at 09.00 (Brussels time).
