COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1494/97 of 29 July 1997 amending Regulation (EEC) No 2168/92 laying down detailed implementing rules for the specific measures for the Canary Islands with regard to potatoes

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1601/92 of 15 June 1992 introducing specific measures for the Canary Islands concerning certain agricultural products (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2348/96 (2), and in particular Article 21 thereof,

Whereas the restriction on deliveries of potatoes for human consumption during the sensitive periods referred to in Title III of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2168/92 (3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1166/97 (4), is implemented by means of a procedure for the issue and presentation of 'potato delivery certificates`, hereinafter referred to as 'certificates`;

Whereas the detailed rules for the issue of the certificates must be adjusted to improve administration of the quantities available; whereas, in particular, in order to ensure a regular supply to the Canary Islands of potatoes for human consumption, the issue of certificates for quantities which are not intended to meet the direct needs of applicants should be avoided; whereas, to that end, it should be provided that the rights resulting from the certificates may not be transferred by the holder;

Whereas the replacement of certificates that are still valid by non-transferable certificates should be permitted;

Whereas, for the sake of a more ordered administration of supplies, a time limit for the validity of certificates should be laid down;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
