COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) N° 1194/90

of 7 May 1990

fixing certain prices and other amounts applicable in the fruit and vegetables sector for the 1990/91 marketing year

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to the Act of Accession of Spain and Portugal, and in particular Article 89 (1) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) N° 1035/72 of 18 May 1972 on the common organization of the market in fruit and vegetables (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) N° 1193/90 (2), and in particular Article 16 (1) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) N° 2511/69 of 9 December 1969 laying down special measures for improving the production and marketing of Community citrus fruit (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1130/89 (4), and in particular Article 7 (2) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (5),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (6),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (7),

Whereas, pursuant to Article 16 (1) of Regulation (EEC) N° 1035/72, a basic price and a buying-in price are to be fixed for each marketing year for each of the products listed in Annex II to the said Regulation; whereas, in accordance with Article 1 (3) of the above Regulation, the marketing years for the products in question are as follows:

- for cauliflowers, from 1 May to 30 April,

- for tomatoes, from 1 January to 31 December,

- for peaches and nectarines, from 1 May to 31 October,

- for lemons, from 1 June to 31 May,

- for pears, from 1 June to 31 May,

- for table grapes, from 1 May to 30 April,

- for apples, from 1 July to 30 June,

- for mandarins, satsumas and clementines, from

1 October to 15 May,

- for oranges, from 1 October to 15 July,

- for aubergines, from 1 January to 31 December,

- for apricots, from 1 May to 31 August;

Whereas, however, pursuant to the third subparagraph of Article 16 (1) of Regulation (EEC) N° 1035/72, no basic price or buying-in price need be fixed for the slack marketing periods at the beginning and at the end of the marketing year;

Whereas, when the basic prices and buying-in prices for fruit and vegetables are fixed, account has to be taken of the aims of the common agricultural policy and the contribution which the Community desires to make to the harmonious development of world trade; whereas the objectives of the common agricultural policy are, in particular, to ensure a fair standard of living for the agricultural community, to assure the availability of supplies and to ensure that supplies reach consumers at reasonable prices;

Whereas the basic prices must be fixed by reference to the trend in the average prices recorded during the three preceding years on the most representative producer markets within the Community for a product with defined commercial characteristics, such as a variety or type, quality class, size and packaging; whereas the buying-in prices must be fixed by reference to the basic price in accordance with Article 16 (3) of Regulation (EEC) 1035/72;

Whereas, as far as oranges and mandarines are concerned the abovementioned requirements, together with the need to accord better utilization of the fruit that finds no outlet on the market for fresh products justify a reduction in prices;

Whereas Article 148 (1) of the Act of Accession results in a price level in Spain differing from that of the common prices; whereas, pursuant to Article 149 of the Act of Accession, the Spanish prices should be aligned more closely on the common prices each year at the beginning of each marketing year; whereas the criteria laid down for this alignment give the Spanish prices fixed at the levels set out below;

Whereas the Portuguese Republic, during the first stage, is authorized to maintain, with respect to fruit and vegetables, the national arrangements previously in force for the organization of its domestic agricultural market, subject to the conditions laid down in Articles 262 to 265 of the Act of Accession; whereas the prices and amounts fixed by this Regulation are therefore applicable only in the Community excluding Portugal;

Whereas, pursuant to Article 285 (1) (a) of the Act of Accession, prices applicable in Portugal from 1 January 1991 to the end of the 1990/91 marketing year are to be fixed in accordance with the rules provided for under the common organization of the market;

Whereas the amount of the financial compensation for oranges and mandarins must be fixed in accordance with the criteria laid down in Article 7 (1) of Council Regulation (EEC) N° 2511/69,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

For the 1990/91 marketing year, the basic prices and the buying-in prices for fruit and vegetables, the periods during

which they apply and the standard qualities to which they relate shall be as set out in Annex I.

Done at Brussels, 7 May 1990.
