THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1898/87 of 2 July 1987 on the protection of designations used in marketing of milk and milk products (1), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 222/88 (2), and in particular Article 4 (2) (b) thereof,

Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 1898/87 establishes the principle that the descriptions ´milk' and ´milk products' may not be used for milk products other than those described in Article 2 thereof; whereas, as an exception, this principle is not applicable to the description of products the exact nature of which is known because of traditional use and/or when the designations are clearly used to describe a characteristic quality of the product;

Whereas the Member States must notify to the Commission indicative lists of the products which they deem to meet, within their own territories, the criteria for the abovementioned exception; whereas, in accordance with Article 4 (2) (b) of the Regulation concerned, a list should be made of such products on the basis of the indicative lists notified by the Member States; whereas the Community list should include the names of the relevant products according to their traditional use in the various languages of the Community, in order to render these names usable in all the Member States, provided they comply with the provisions of Council Directive 79/112/EEC of 18 December 1978 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the labelling, presentation and advertising of foodstuffs intended for sale to the ultimate consumer (3), as last amended by Directive 86/197/EEC (4);

Whereas this list is not exhaustive and additions thereto may be made in accordance with Article 4 (2) (b) of Regulation (EEC) No 1898/87;

Whereas the Management Committee for Milk and Milk Products has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
