COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 716/90

of 22 March 1990

temporarily suspending the autonomous Common Customs Tariff duties on a number of agricultural products

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 28 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas production in the Community of the products specified in this Regulation is currently inadequate or non-existent; whereas producers thus cannot meet the needs of user industries in the Community;

Whereas in certain cases it is in the interest of the Community to suspend the autonomous Common Customs Tariff duties only partially, particularly since the goods in question are produced in the Community, and in the other cases to suspend them totally;

Whereas, in view of the difficulty of assessing accurately short-term trends in the economic situation in the relevant sectors, suspension measures should be taken only temporarily by fixing their period of validity by reference to the interests of Community production,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The autonomous Common Customs Tariff duties for the products listed in the Annex hereto shall be suspended at the level indicated against each of them.

These suspensions shall be valid

- from 1 April to 31 December 1990 for the product mentioned in Table I,

- from 1 July to 31 December 1990 for the products mentioned in Table II,

- from 1 July 1990 to 30 June 1991 for the products mentioned in Table III.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on 1 April 1990.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 22 March 1990.

For the Council

The President

P. FLYNN

ANNEX

Notes for the purpose of the following tables:

(a) Control of the use for this special purpose shall be carried out pursuant to the relevant Community provisions.

(b) The suspension shall apply to fish intended to undergo any operation unless they are intended to undergo exclusively one or more of the following operations:

- cleaning, gutting, tailing, heading,

- cutting (excluding filleting or cutting of frozen blocks),

- sampling, sorting,

- labelling,

- packing,

- chilling,

- freezing,

- deep freezing,

- thawing, separation,

The suspension is not allowed for products intended, in addition, to undergo treatment (or operations) qualifying for suspension where such treatment (or operations) is (are) carried out at retail or catering level. The suspension of customs duties shall apply only to fish intended for human consumption.

(c) However, the suspension is not allowed where processing is carried out by retail or catering undertakings.
