COMMISSION DIRECTIVE

of 2 December 1982

amending Annex II to Council Directive 69/208/EEC on the marketing of seed of oil and fibre plants

(82/859/EEC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 69/208/EEC of 30 June 1969 on the marketing of seed of oil and fibre plants (1), as last amended by Commission Directive 82/287/EEC (2), and in particular Article 20a thereof,

Whereas the conditions to be satisfied by the crop, including the varietal purity standards, should be defined so as to conform with the schemes for the varietal certification of seed intended for international trade laid down by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD);

Whereas some standards introduced by Directive 82/287/EEC are pointless, taking into account that, in the case of certain species, more generations of seeds of the category 'certified seed' are not allowed;

Whereas, in the light of the development of scientific and technical knowledge, Annex II to Directive 69/208/EEC should accordingly be amended;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Seeds and Propagating Material for Agriculture, Horticulture and Forestry,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

2. In the left-hand column, in the second indent of the third item, the words '1st generation' are deleted.

3. The third indent of the third item is deleted.

Article 2

1. Member States shall bring into force the laws, regulations or administrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive not later than 1 July 1983.
