COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 2348/96 of 6 December 1996 amending Regulations (EEC) No 1600/92 and (EEC) No 1601/92 concerning specific measures for the Azores and Madeira, and the Canary Islands respectively with regard to certain agricultural products

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 43 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Whereas Regulations (EEC) No 1600/92 (3) and (EEC) No 1601/92 (4) provide for the application of the specific supply arrangements for the archipelagos of Madeira and the Canary Islands with regard to bovine animals intended for fattening and consumption locally, and to certain fresh or chilled pigmeat and certain processed meat products, up to the end of the 1995/1996 marketing year for beef and veal;

Whereas there have been certain administrative difficulties in the introduction of these arrangements which have led to delays in their implementation; whereas, furthermore, the abovementioned Regulations provide for the presentation of an assessment report, accompanied, where necessary, by appropriate proposals, at the end of the first four years of application;

Whereas, pending any conclusions to be drawn from the assessment and to avoid any sudden interruption in the application of these measures detrimental to trade flows between the outermost regions and the rest of the Community, their application should be extended temporarily to 30 June 1997;

Whereas, for the same reasons, application of the specific supply arrangements for seed potatoes should also be extended in the case of Madeira,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
