HAVING REGARD TO THE PROPOSAL FROM THE COMMISSION ;

HAVING REGARD TO THE OPINION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT ( 2 ) ;

WHEREAS IT IS FOR THE COUNCIL TO ADOPT DETAILED RULES FOR THE APPLICATION OF ARTICLE 20 ( 1 ) OF THAT REGULATION AND DEFINE THE CASES IN WHICH AND THE LIMITS WITHIN WHICH MEMBER STATES MAY TAKE INTERIM PROTECTIVE MEASURES ;

WHEREAS , THEREFORE , THE MAIN FACTORS TO BE USED IN ASSESSING WHETHER THE COMMUNITY MARKET IS SERIOUSLY DISTURBED OR THREATENED WITH DISTURBANCE SHOULD BE DETERMINED ;

WHEREAS , SINCE RECOURSE TO PROTECTIVE MEASURES DEPENDS ON THE EFFECT OF TRADE WITH THIRD COUNTRIES ON THE COMMUNITY MARKET , THE SITUATION ON THIS MARKET MUST BE ASSESSED BY TAKING ACCOUNT NOT ONLY OF THE FACTORS PECULIAR TO THE MARKET ITSELF BUT ALSO OF THE FACTORS CONNECTED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THAT TRADE ;

WHEREAS THE MEASURES WHICH MAY BE TAKEN IN APPLICATION OF ARTICLE 20 OF REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 SHOULD BE LAID DOWN ; WHEREAS THOSE MEASURES MUST BE SUCH AS TO PUT AN END TO SERIOUS DISTURBANCES ON THE MARKET AND THE THREAT OF SUCH DISTURBANCES ; WHEREAS THEY MUST BE SUITED TO THE CIRCUMSTANCES IF THEY ARE NOT TO HAVE OTHER THAN THE DESIRED EFFECTS ;

WHEREAS THE ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS INCLUDES A SYSTEM OF LICENCES AND A SYSTEM OF FIXING LEVIES AND REFUNDS IN ADVANCE ; WHEREAS IN VIEW OF THE EXISTENCE OF THESE SYSTEMS RULES SHOULD BE LAID DOWN WHEREBY INTERIM PROTECTIVE MEASURES AT COMMUNITY LEVEL CAN BE DECIDED UPON AFTER A SUMMARY EXAMINATION OF THE SITUATION ;

WHEREAS RECOURSE BY A MEMBER STATE TO ARTICLE 20 OF REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 SHOULD BE LIMITED TO A CASE IN WHICH THE MARKET OF THAT STATE , FOLLOWING AN ASSESSMENT BASED ON THE ABOVEMENTIONED FACTORS , IS REGARDED AS FULFILLING THE CONDITIONS OF THAT ARTICLE ; WHEREAS THE MEASURES WHICH MAY BE TAKEN IN THAT CASE SHOULD BE DESIGNED TO PREVENT THE MARKET SITUATION FROM DETERIORATING FURTHER ; WHEREAS , HOWEVER , THEY MUST BE OF AN INTERIM NATURE ; WHEREAS THIS INTERIM NATURE OF NATIONAL MEASURES JUSTIFIES THEIR APPLICATION ONLY UNTIL THE ENTRY INTO FORCE OF A COMMUNITY DECISION ON THE SUBJECT ;

WHEREAS THE COMMISSION IS REQUIRED TO TAKE A DECISION ON COMMUNITY PROTECTIVE MEASURES TO BE APPLIED IN RESPONSE TO A REQUEST FROM A MEMBER STATE WITHIN 24 HOURS FOLLOWING RECEIPT OF THE REQUEST ; WHEREAS , IN ORDER THAT THE COMMISSION MAY ASSESS THE SITUATION ON THE MARKET WITH THE GREATEST EFFECTIVENESS , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE TO ENSURE THAT IT IS INFORMED AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE OF ANY INTERIM PROTECTIVE MEASURES APPLIED BY A MEMBER STATE ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE COMMISSION TO BE NOTIFIED OF ANY SUCH MEASURES AS SOON AS THEY HAVE BEEN ADOPTED AND FOR SUCH NOTIFICATION TO BE TREATED AS A REQUEST WITHIN THE MEANING OF ARTICLE 20 ( 2 ) OF REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 ,
