Council Regulation (EC) No 1666/2000 of 17 July 2000 amending Regulation (EEC) No 1766/92 on the common organisation of the market in cereals

Official Journal L 193 , 29/07/2000 P. 0001 - 0002


Council Regulation (EC) No 1666/2000

of 17 July 2000

amending Regulation (EEC) No 1766/92 on the common organisation of the market in cereals

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 37 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:

(1) Article 3(2) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 1766/92(4) provides for the intervention price to be subject to monthly increases. This mechanism seeks to take account, to some extent, of storage costs and financing charges for storing cereals in the Community and of the need to ensure that stocks are disposed of in line with market requirements. In accordance with the approach followed for the reform of the common organisation of the markets in connection with Agenda 2000 and in order to enable producers to organise their production over several years, the number and amount of the monthly increases should be fixed without any limit in time, without prejudice to any revisions that may be called for in the future.

(2) With an eye to simplification and legislative clarity, the provisions of Regulation (EEC) No 1766/92 that are not relevant should be deleted at the same time.

(3) The measures necessary for the implementation of Regulation (EEC) No 1766/92 should be adopted in accordance with Council Decision 1999/468/EC of 28 June 1999 laying down the procedures for the exercise of implementing powers conferred on the Commission(5),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

1. Article 3(2) shall be replaced by the following:
