of 31 March 1984

fixing the buying-in prices for hindquarters of beef applicable from 2 April 1984



Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 805/68 of 27 June 1968 on the common organization of the market in beef and veal (1), as last amended by the Act of Accession of Greece, and in particular Article 6 (5) (c) thereof,

Whereas, in Regulation (EEC) No 868/84 of 31 March 1984 (2), the Council fixed the guide price and the intervention price for adult bovine animals for the 1984/85 marketing year; whereas, however, at the same time, in Regulaton (EEC) No 869/84 (3), the Council decided that the Community scale for the classification of adult bovine carcases would apply in respect of intervention measures only from 9 April 1984 onwards; whereas, for the intervening period, buying-in prices should be fixed according to the traditional method;

Whereas, in accordance with Council Regulation (EEC) No 1302/73 (4), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 427/77 (5), the qualities and cuts of products to be bought in by intervention agencies must be determined with a view, on the one hand, to the need to give effective support to the market and to ensure the necessary balance between the market in question and that in competing livestock production and, on the other hand, to the Community's financial responsibilities in the matter; whereas buying in should therefore be limited to certain cuts of meat;

Whereas the upper and lower limits for buying-in prices must be fixed in such a way as to allow intervention agencies to take account of the differences of value in meat arising out of the age, weight, conformation and finish of the animals concerned;

Whereas the upper limits for buying-in prices should be fixed at a level corresponding to the intervention price fixed by Regulation (EEC) No 868/84 for the 1984/85 marketing year by applying the coefficients fixed in Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2226/78 (6), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 796/84 (7);

Whereas the simultaneous presentation of a half-carcase's forequarter and hindquarter is likely to facilitate the checks to be carried out by the intervention agency as regards compliance with the rules on the quality and classification of cuts of meat; whereas intervention agencies should therefore be authorized to request the simultaneous presentation, for that purpose, of the forequarter and the hindquarter;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Beef and Veal,


Article 1

With effect from 2 April 1984, intervention agencies shall buy in hindquarters of beef offered to them in accordance with the conditions laid down in Regulation (EEC) No 2226/78 at prices determined within the limits laid down for each product in the Annex to this Regulation, having regard to the age, weight, conformation and finish of the animals from which the said products are obtained.

Only meat from male animals may be bought in for intervention storage in accordance with the conditions specified above.

At the intervention agency's request operators shall, together with the hindquarter they are offering for intervention, present also to the intervention agency the forequarter coming from the same half-carcase.

Article 2

Regulation (EEC) No 3042/83 (8) is hereby repealed with effect from 2 April 1984.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

It shall apply from 2 April 1984.

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

Done at Brussels, 31 March 1984.
