REGULATION (EEC) No 715/73 OF THE COMMISSION of 19 February 1973 amending Regulation (EEC) No 1727/70 as regards the classification of some leaf tobacco and baled tobacco varieties

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community;

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 727/70 (1) of 21 April 1970 on the common organization of the market in raw tobacco, as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1574/71 (2), and in particular Articles 5 (6) and 6 (10) thereof;

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1727/70 (3) of 25 August 1970, as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2596/70 (4), prescribed the intervention procedure for raw tobacco and established the quality classifications of leaf tobacco and baled tobacco for the purpose of fixing the scales of increases and reductions provided for in Articles 5 (3) and 6 (7) of Regulation (EEC) No 727/70;

Whereas the experience gained from the first two crops harvested since the establishment of the organization of the market in raw tobacco has shown that a single description for the Burley I and Maryland varieties is not descriptive enough of the characteristics of the Maryland variety ; whereas it is therefore necessary to separate the classification of these two varieties in accordance with the reference qualities laid down in Council Regulations (EEC) No 805/72 (5) of 17 April 1972 and (EEC) No 2484/72 (6) of 29 November 1972 fixing the norm price, the intervention price, the derived intervention price and the reference qualities for leaf tobacco and baled tobacco from the 1972 harvest;

Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 2484/72 extended the fixing of derived intervention prices to the varieties of tobacco referred to under serial Nos 1, 2 and 3 ; whereas it is consequently necessary to establish the quality classification of these varieties of baled tobacco;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the Opinion of the Management Committee for Tobacco;

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

In Annex I to Regulation (EEC) No 1727/70 the text of the classification of varieties entered against serial No 11 is replaced by the following:

Category B Leaf of varying consistency, sound, with some curing defects and damage, not uniform in colour.

Category C Leaf coarse, of close texture, with marked curing defects, damage and colour faults, but having the minimum qualities required for intervention.
