COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 674/93 of 24 March 1993 laying down certain additional detailed rules for the application of the supplementary trade mechanism (STM) to trade in fruit and vegetables between Spain and the Community as constituted on 31 December 1985 as regards tomatoes, artichokes, melons and strawberries

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to the Act of Accession of Spain and Portugal,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3210/89 of 23 October 1989 laying down general rules for applying the supplementary trade mechanism to fresh fruit and vegetables (1), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3818/92 (2), and in particular Article 9 thereof,

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 816/89 (3), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3831/92 (4), establishes the list of products subject to the supplementary trade mechanism in the fresh fruit and vegetables sector from 1 January 1990; whereas tomatoes, artichokes, melons and strawberries are included in the list;

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3944/89 (5), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3308/91 (6), lays down detailed rules for applying the supplementary trade mechanism, hereinafter called the 'STM', to fresh fruit and vegetables;

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 197/93 (7) lays down that the periods referred to in Article 2 of Regulation (EEC) No 3210/89 shall be up to 28 March 1993 for the above products; whereas in view of last expected exports from Spain to the rest of the Community with the exception of Portugal, and of the Community market situation, a period I should be fixed for the melons;

Whereas, on the basis of the abovementioned criteria a period I and III should be determined for tomatoes, a period II and III should be determined for strawberries and a period II should be determined for artichokes respectively until 2 May; whereas indicative ceilings should be determined pursuant to Article 3 of Regulation (EEC) No 3210/89 for very short periods, given the sensitivity of these products;

Whereas it should be stipulated that the provisions of Regulation (EEC) No 3944/89 relating to statistical monitoring, to the use of exit documents for Spanish consignments and to the various communications from the Member States apply in order to ensure that the STM operates;

Whereas the need for accurate information justifies communications on the statistical monitoring of trade at more frequent intervals;

Whereas, on application of Article 2 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 1911/91 of 26 June 1991 on the application of the provisions of Community law to the Canary Islands (8), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 284/92 (9), the rules in force for mainland Spain shall apply to products originating in the Canary Islands and sent to other parts of the Community from 1 July 1991; consequently the information concerning produce from the Canary Islands should be taken into account for the application of the supplementary trade mechanisms;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
