REGULATION (EEC) No 937/68 OF THE COMMISSION of 10 July 1968 amending Regulation No 470/67/EEC as regards the quality and quantity of paddy rice taken over by intervention agencies

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community;

Having regard to Council Regulation No 359/67/EEC 1 of 25 July 1967 on the common organisation of the market in rice, and in particular Article 5 (5) thereof;

Whereas experience in the 1967/68 marketing year, the first year of the common organisation of the market in rice, showed that large quantities of rice which could have been marketed in the Community were offered for intervention, in particular during the first months of the marketing year ; whereas this was especially true of long grained rice which was produced in considerably larger quantities than in previous years as a particular result of the corrective amounts granted on intervention, while Community demand did not develop as rapidly as production;

Whereas, in view of the large quantities offered for intervention, the quality required for such intervention, in particular for long grained rice, should be adapted to the actual market situation and in consequence certain requirements imposed by Commission Regulation No 470/67/EEC 2 of 21 August 1967 on the taking over of paddy rice by intervention agencies and fixing the corrective amounts, price increases and reductions applied by them should be amended with effect from the next marketing year ; whereas, moreover, experience has shown that intervention procedure should be much simplified by amending the quantity required for intervention;

Whereas, in addition, varieties of rice are now harvested in the Community which are not included in the lists of Community varieties in Regulation No 470/67/EEC ; whereas it is thus necessary to include these taking into account the real differences between their quality and that of the varieties already listed in that Regulation;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the Opinion of the Management Committee for Cereals;

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Regulation No 470/67/EEC shall be amended as follows.

Article 2

In Article 1, 20 tons shall be substituted for 10 tons.

Article 3

"2. Paddy rice shall be considered to be of sound and fair marketable quality when it is free of odour and of live insects, and when - the moisture content does not exced 16 %;

- the yield after processing is not less than 14 % for round grained rice and 10 % for other rice below the basic yields listed in Annex III;

- the percentage of chalky grains does not exceed 6 % for round grained rice and 4 % for other rice;

- the percentage of grains striated with red does not exceed 10 % for round grained rice and 5 % for other rice;
