Whereas in conjunction with the sale by tender under Commission Regulation (EEC) No 368/77 of 23 February 1977 on the sale by tender of skimmed-milk powder for use in feed for pigs and poultry (5), a corresponding measure should be adopted for the sale of the skimmed-milk powder concerned at a fixed price, in order that the processing industry may obtain supplies, in certain circumstances, outside the tendering procedure;

Whereas the price must be fixed in such a way as to give priority to sale by tender ; whereas the other rules can for the most part be based on the provisions of Regulation (EEC) No 368/77 ; whereas some of these rules must be amended or corrected under this Regulation following some errors of substance;

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1687/76 of 30 June 1976 laying down common detailed rules for verifying the use and/or destination of products from intervention (6), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 368/77, applied ; whereas, therefore, an appropriate addition must be made to the Annex hereto;
