COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 468/94 of 2 March 1994 amending Annex VI to Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 on organic production of agricultural products and indications referring hereto on agricultural products and foodstuffs

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 of 24 June 1991 on organic production of agricultural products and indications referring thereto on agricultural products and foodstuffs (1), as last amended by Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2608/93 (2), and in particular Article 13 thereof,

Whereas according to Article 16 (5) of Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 any use of substances not listed in Annex VI is excluded 12 months after the establishment of Annex VI, even where before such substances were authorized according to existing national provisions;

Whereas certain Member States have considered that certain products should be added to Annex VI and have presented requests to the Commission to support these considerations;

Whereas it has appeared from these requests that certain ingredients of non-agricultural origin are indispensable to make it possible for certain foodstuffs to be appropriately produced or preserved; whereas these compounds also are very commonly present in nature;

Whereas it has appeared from these requests that certain agricultural products need to be added to section C of Annex VI and are required because these products appear not to be produced in sufficient quantities in the Community according to the organic production method while, on the contrary, that certain other products need to be deleted;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the committee referred to in Article 14 of Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex VI to Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 is amended as defined in the Annex to the present Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force 15 days from the date of publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.
