THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 43 thereof,

Having regard to the Act of Accession of Spain and Portugal, and in particular Article 234 (3) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (3),

Whereas, with a view to laying down better guidelines for production and improving the way the Community withdrawal and control measure system functions, the necessary data regarding Community citrus fruit production potential must be available and accordingly provision should be made for the establishment of a register of citrus cultivation for each Member State producing citrus fruit;

Whereas, for economic and technical reasons, the Member States in which the total area under citrus fruit is very limited should be exempted from the obligation to establish the citrus cultivation register;

Whereas provision should be made for a time limit of five years for the full establishment of the citrus cultivation register; whereas, in view of the need to test the methods to be used, provision should be made for methodological trials to be conducted prior to the establishment of the citrus cultivation register;

Whereas information contained in the citrus cultivation register must be constantly in line with the actual situation of citrus cultivation; whereas, as a consequence, provision should be made for its constant updating and for regular checks on such updating;

Whereas, owing to the information it contains, the citrus cultivation register is a vital management and control instrument; whereas, for that reason, the relevant Community authorities must be able to have access thereto;

Whereas the measures contemplated as a whole are of special Community interest; whereas provision should accordingly be made for the establishment and updating of the citrus cultivation register to be financed in full by the Community;

Whereas, so that the citrus cultivation register is established and managed under the best conditions, the undertakings entrusted with its establishment should be determined by invitation to tender;

Whereas this action should be implemented in Portugal as from the beginning of this marketing year,
