Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1601/92 of 15 June 1992 concerning specific measures for the Canary Islands with regard to certain agricultural products (3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2348/96 (4), and in particular Article 3 (2) thereof,

Whereas certain intervention agencies hold substantial stocks of beef bought into intervention; whereas an extension of the storage period should be avoided on account of the ensuing high costs;

Whereas Article 3 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 2790/94 of 16 November 1994 laying down common detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EEC) No 1601/92 concerning specific measures for the Canary Islands with regard to certain agricultural products (9), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2883/94 (10), provides for the use of aid certificates issued by the competent Spanish authorities for supplies from the Community; whereas, in order to improve the operation of the abovementioned arrangements, certain derogations from that Regulation should be laid down, in particular, with regard to the application for and the issue of aid certificates;

Whereas the sale should be conducted in accordance with Commission Regulations (EEC) No 2539/84, (EEC) No 3002/92 (11), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 770/96 (12), and (EC) No 2790/94, subject to certain special exceptions on account of the particular use to which the products in question are to be put;

Whereas it is necessary to provide for the lodging of a security to guarantee that the beef arrives at the intended destination;

Whereas Commission Regulation (EC) No 1827/97 (13) should be repealed;

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