COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 3414/93 of 13 December 1993 amending for the second time Regulation (EC) No 3088/93 adopting exceptional support measures for the market in pigmeat in Germany

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2759/75 of 29 October 1975, on the common organization of the market in pigmeat (1), as last amended by Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1249/89 (2), and in particular Article 20 thereof,

Whereas because of the outbreak of classical swine fever in certain production regions in Germany, exceptional support measures for the market in pigmeat were adopted for that Member State in Commission Regulation (EC) No 3088/93 (3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 3336/93 (4);

Whereas the application of Regulation (EC) No 3088/93 has shown the need to specify the average weight of eligible animals and to introduce proportionality rules as regards the granting of the aid in cases where the average weight requirement is not met; whereas it is necessary to apply these provisions with effect from the beginning of the exceptional measures in order to ensure equal treatment of all participants;

Whereas the zones in which the exceptional support measures for the market are applied are those set out in Annex I to Commission Decision 93/566/EC (5); whereas that Annex is amended regularly; whereas, as a result, that Annex should be used for the application of Regulation (EC) No 3088/93;

Whereas it is necessary to adjust the aid granted when the animals are delivered to the present market situation taking account of the increase in market prices from 29 November 1993;

Whereas the Management Committee for Pigmeat has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
