REGULATION (EU) 2015/2284 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

of 25 November 2015

repealing Council Directive 76/621/EEC relating to the fixing of the maximum level of erucic acid in oils and fats and Council Regulation (EC) No 320/2006 establishing a temporary scheme for the restructuring of the sugar industry

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular the first paragraph of Article 42, Article 43(2) and Article 114 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

After transmission of the draft legislative act to the national parliaments,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee (1),

Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure (2),

Whereas:

(1)

Improving the transparency of Union law is an essential element of the better law–making strategy that Union institutions are implementing. In that context it is appropriate to repeal those legal acts which no longer have real effect.

(2)

The following legal acts relating to the common agricultural policy have become obsolete, even though formally they are still in force:

Council Directive 76/621/EEC (3). The content of that Directive has been taken up by Commission Regulation (EC) No 1881/2006 (4);

Council Regulation (EC) No 320/2006 (5). The temporary scheme established by that Regulation was applicable only until the marketing year 2009/2010.

(3)

For reasons of legal certainty and clarity, those obsolete legal acts should be repealed,

HAVE ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Directive 76/621/EEC and Regulation (EC) No 320/2006 are repealed.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Strasbourg, 25 November 2015.
