COUNCIL DIRECTIVE of 15 December 1981 amending Directive 76/625/EEC concerning the statistical surveys to be carried out by the Member States in order to determine the production potential of plantations of certain species of fruit trees (81/1015/EEC)

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 proposal from the Commission (1),

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

Whereas Member States submit the results of the survey carried out pursuant to Directive 76/625/EEC (3), as last amended by the 1979 Act of Accession, by production area and not by the list of territories set out in the Annex to that Directive;

Whereas experience has shown that some Member States have encountered difficulties in meeting the final date mentioned in Articles 5 (1) and 6 (1) of the said Directive ; whereas provision should therefore be made for a longer period;

Whereas it is desirable that the annual estimates of areas of fruit trees cleared referred to in the said Article 5 (1) be broken down by variety;

Whereas, owing to special circumstances, it will not be possible for one Member State to collect data by density classes during the 1982 survey, and it is therefore appropriate to grant this Member State a derogation in respect of the 1982 survey;

Whereas the financial responsibility of the Community must be defined with regard to expenditure incurred by Greece for the 1982 survey,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:
