COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 1251/2013

of 3 December 2013

amending Regulation (EC) No 606/2009 as regards certain oenological practices and Regulation (EC) No 436/2009 as regards the registering of these practices in the wine sector registers

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 of 22 October 2007 establishing a common organisation of agricultural markets and on specific provisions for certain agricultural products (Single CMO Regulation) (1), and in particular the third and fourth paragraphs of Article 121 and Article 185c(3), in conjunction with Article 4 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 3 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 606/2009 (2), authorised oenological practices are laid down in Annex I to that Regulation. The International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) has amended the conditions of use of certain oenological practices already authorised in the European Union. In order to take into account of technical progress and to provide Union producers with the same possibilities as those available to third-country producers, the conditions of use of these oenological practices should be amended in the Union on the basis of the conditions of use defined by the OIV.

(2)

The OIV has adopted new oenological practices. In order to take into account of technical progress and to provide Union producers with the new possibilities available to third-country producers, these new oenological practices should be authorised in the Union under the conditions of use defined by the OIV.

(3)

Certain oenological practices are particularly exposed to the risk of fraudulent use and must be indicated in the registers and accompanying documents in accordance with Commission Regulation (EC) No 436/2009 (3). Requirements relating to practices such as membrane treatment specify that these practices should be entered in the registers in accordance with Article 41 of Regulation (EC) No 436/2009. The rules regarding the registration provided for in Regulation (EC) No 436/2009 should be amended to take into account the new oenological practices authorised by Regulation (EC) No 606/2009 as amended by the present Regulation.

(4)

Regulations (EC) No 606/2009 and (EC) No 436/2009 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Regulatory Committee established by Article 195(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 and the opinion of the Management Committee for the Common Organisation of Agricultural Markets,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
