REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2739/75 OF THE COUNCIL OF 29 OCTOBER 1975 ON GENERAL RULES GOVERNING THE DENATURING OF COMMON WHEAT AND RYE OF BREAD-MAKING QUALITY

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES ,

HAVING REGARD TO THE TREATY ESTABLISHING THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY ;

HAVING REGARD TO COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 ( 1 ) OF 29 OCTOBER 1975 ON THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS , AND IN PARTICULAR ARTICLES 7 ( 4 ) AND 16 ( 5 ) THEREOF ;

HAVING REGARD TO THE PROPOSAL FROM THE COMMISSION ;

WHEREAS METHODS OF DENATURING SHOULD BE EFFECTIVE ENOUGH TO PREVENT THE DENATURED CEREAL BEING PLACED AGAIN ON THE MARKET FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION IN ITS ORIGINAL STATE OR AS A PROCESSED PRODUCT ; WHEREAS IT IS THEREFORE ADVISABLE TO LAY DOWN TECHNICAL METHODS OFFERING MINIMUM SAFEGUARDS IN THAT RESPECT AND TO PROVIDE THAT IN NO CASE COULD THE METHODS ACTUALLY EMPLOYED BY MEMBER STATES RESULT IN A LESSER DEGREE OF DENATURING ;

WHEREAS IN VIEW OF THE AIM PURSUED DENATURING CAN ONLY BE JUSTIFIED FOR BREAD-MAKING CEREALS OF A CERTAIN MINIMUM QUALITY ; WHEREAS , MOREOVER , THE COSTS ENTAILED BY DENATURING AND THE CONTROL THEREOF CAN ONLY BE JUSTIFIED FOR A MINIMUM QUANTITY OF CEREALS ;

WHEREAS THE FACTORS ON WHICH THE PREMIUM IS BASED MAY CHANGE CONSIDERABLY DURING THE YEAR AND THUS REDUCE OR INCREASE THE INCENTIVE TO DENATURE CEREALS , THEREBY DISTURBING THE BALANCE OF THE MARKET , IN PARTICULAR WHEN THE MARKET SITUATION OBLIGES INTERVENTION AGENCIES TO BUY IN LARGE QUANTITIES OF CEREALS ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , ALTHOUGH IT IS NECESSARY TO PUBLISH THE AMOUNT OF THE PREMIUM BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE CROP YEAR , ADJUSTMENTS SHOULD BE ALLOWED WHERE THE BALANCE OF THE MARKET IS LIKELY TO BE DISTURBED BY THE FACTORS REFERRED TO ABOVE ;

WHEREAS DENATURING BY INTERVENTION AGENCIES COULD BE AN ADVANTAGEOUS WAY OF MARKETING CEREALS WHICH HAD BEEN THE SUBJECT OF INTERVENTION ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , CEREALS DENATURED BY THEM SHOULD BE OF THE SAME MINIMUM QUALITIES AS THOSE WHICH ARE THE SUBJECT OF A DENATURING PREMIUM ;

WHEREAS WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN DENATURED , COMMON WHEAT AND RYE HAVE CHARACTERISTICS SUCH THAT THEY COULD BE SUBSTITUTED FOR BARLEY OR MAIZE OR CERTAIN USES ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , CARE MUST BE TAKEN TO ENSURE THAT DENATURING DOES NOT CAUSE DISTURBANCES ON THE MARKET FOR THE TWO LATTER PRODUCTS ;

WHEREAS OWING TO THE INTERCHANGEABILITY OF DENATURED COMMON WHEAT AND BARLEY , THE REFUND FOR DENATURED COMMON WHEAT SHOULD BE FIXED ON THE BASIS OF THAT GRANTED FOR BARLEY ;

WHEREAS , WHEN ITALY MAKES USE OF THE POWER CONFERRED BY ARTICLE 23 OF REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 , FEED GRAIN IMPORTED INTO THAT COUNTRY SUBJECT TO A REDUCED LEVY IS PLACED IN A MORE COMPETITIVE POSITION THAN THE DENATURED COMMON WHEAT WHICH CAN BE USED IN ITS PLACE ; WHEREAS THE PURPOSE OF COMMUNITY RULES IS TO ENABLE DENATURED COMMON WHEAT TO COMPETE WITH BARLEY ON THE INTERNAL MARKET ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , A SYSTEM OF SUBSIDIES SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED TO RESTORE THE BALANCE BETWEEN THE MARKETS IN DENATURED COMMON WHEAT AND IN OTHER FEED GRAINS ;

WHEREAS TO THAT END PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE , AS IN THE CASE OF FEED GRAIN , FOR EXPORTING MEMBER STATES TO PAY CONSIGNORS ON REQUEST THE SUBSIDY WHICH ITALY HAS TO GRANT IN RESPECT OF DELIVERIES OF DENATURED COMMON WHEAT , IT BEING FOR THE EXPORTING MEMBER STATE TO INFORM THE ITALIAN REPUBLIC OF SUCH PAYMENT ,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION :
