COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 124/87

of 16 January 1987

amending Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1836/82 laying down the procedure and conditions for the disposal of cereals held by intervention agencies

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2727/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common organization of the market in cereals (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1579/86 (2), and in particular Articles 7 (5) and 8 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1677/85 of 11 June 1985 on monetary compensatory amounts in agriculture (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2502/86 (4), and in particular Article 9 thereof,

Whereas, in view of the quantities of stocks of cereals in intervention in the Community and in order to ensure sound management of the market, the disposal of the abovementioned stocks on the internal market and on that of third countries, should be decided according to the Management Committee procedure;

Whereas, in accordance with the provisions of Article 3 (1) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 1581/86 of 23 May 1986 laying down general rules for intervention on the market in cereals (5), cereals are to be put up for sale on the internal market at prices enabling disturbance of the market to be avoided; whereas that aim may be achieved if the selling price reflects the real situation on the market but is not less than the intervention price; whereas special situations exist during the changeover from one marketing year to the next when the market continues to be supplied with cereals from the old harvest; whereas that should consequently be taken into account when conditions of sale are being fixed; whereas special measures should also be considered to resell stocks purchased in previous years;

Whereas certain technical adjustments are required following amendments to the rules with effect from the 1986/87 marketing year; whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1836/82 (6), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3447/85 (7) should therefore be amended;

Whereas the Management Committee for Cereals has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
