THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 822/87 of 16 March 1987 on the common organization of the market in wine (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 4250/88 (2),

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1393/76 of 17 June 1976 laying down detailed rules for the importation of products in the wine-growing sector originating in certain third countries (5), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2135/84 (6), and in particular Article 1a (4) thereof,

Whereas for the currencies of the Member States maintained at any given moment within a maximum spread of 2,25 %, the special rate is the conversion rate resulting from the central rate; whereas, for the other currencies, the special rate for the period 1 March to 31 August 1989 is equal to the conversion rate in relation to all the currencies of the Member States maintained at any given moment with a maximum spread of 2,25 % resulting from the average rate taken into consideration for the purposes of calculating the monetary amounts valid on 1 February 1989;

Whereas under the terms of Council Regulation (EEC) No 1677/85 of 11 June 1985 on monetary compensatory amounts in agriculture (8) as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1889/87 (9), and in particular of Article 6 (1) thereof, the central rates and the market rates are to be multiplied by a corrective factor,
