Whereas Article 30 of Regulation (EEC) No 1600/92 provides for the granting of aid for the production of up to 2 000 tonnes of fresh pineapples per year; whereas the detailed rules for the application of that aid scheme should be laid down;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Fruit and Vegetables,

- in January for production harvested in July to December of the previous year,

- in July for production harvested from January to June of the year in question.

Article 2

1. Aid applications shall include at least the following particulars:

- the applicant's full name and address,
