THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation No 136/66/EEC of 22 September 1966 on the establishment of a common organisation of the market in oils and fats(1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2826/2000(2), and in particular Article 2(2), Article 12a and Article 20a(7) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) All but a few of the provisions of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 205/73 of 25 January 1973 on communications between Member States and the Commission concerning oils and fats(3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1058/87(4), are no longer applicable. That Regulation should therefore be repealed and the provisions of Articles 4 and 5 on communications on trade and production refunds should be incorporated in Commission Regulation (EC) No 1476/95 of 28 June 1995 laying down special detailed rules for the application of the system of import licences for olive oil(5) and Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1963/79 of 6 September 1979 laying down detailed rules for the application of the production refund on olive oil used in the manufacture of certain preserved foods(6), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1458/89(7).

(2) The monitoring of market prices for the various categories of olive oil is essential for assessing whether or not to apply the provisions of Commission Regulation (EC) No 2768/98 of 21 December 1998 on the aid scheme for the private storage of olive oil(8).

(3) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Oils and Fats,
