COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) N° 3905/87

of 22 December 1987

amending Regulation (EEC) N° 805/68 on the common organization of the market in beef and veal

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Articles 42 and 43 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (2),

Whereas the Community is a Contracting Party to the International Convention on the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System, hereinafter referred to as the 'harmonized system', which is intended to replace the Convention of 15 December 1950 on Nomenclature for the Classification of Goods in Customs Tariffs;

Whereas Council Regulation (EEC) N° 2658/87 (3) established, from 1 January 1988, a combined goods nomenclature based on the harmonized system which will meet the requirements both of the Common Customs Tariff and of the external trade statistics of the Community;

Whereas, as a result, it is necessary to express the descriptions of goods and tariff heading numbers which appear in Regulation (EEC) N° 805/68 (4), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) N° 467/87 (5), according to the terms of the combined nomenclature based on the harmonized systems;

Whereas edible flours and meals of meat or meat offal may be classified, according to their essential character, in various subheadings of heading N° 02.06 of the Common Customs Tariff at present in force; whereas, in the combined nomenclature, by way of simplification, a single subheading has been established to cover all edible flours and meals of meat or meat offal; whereas it is desirable that the said edible flours and meals of meat or meat offal be covered by Regulation (EEC) N° 805/68;

(1) Opinion delivered on 18 December 1987 (not yet published in the Official Journal).

(2) Opinion delivered on 16 December 1987 (not yet published in the Official Journal).

(3) OJ N° L 256, 7. 9. 1987, p. 1.

(4) OJ N° L 148, 28. 6. 1968, p. 24.

(5) OJ N° L 48, 17. 2. 1987, p. 1.

Whereas certain homogenized preparations of meat, meat offal or blood, preparations of animal blood, and stuffed pasta containing more than 20 % by weight of sausages and the like, meat and meat offal, including fats, are classified in subheadings of heading N° 16.02 of the Common Customs Tariff at present in force, which are covered by Regulation (EEC) N° 805/68; whereas in the combined nomenclature, by way of simplification, single subheadings have been established for each of the aforementioned preparations; whereas it is desirable that the said preparations be covered by Council Regulation (EEC) N° 2759/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common organization of the market in pigmeat (6), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) N° 3906/87 (7); whereas, as a result, they should no longer be covered by Regulation (EEC) N° 805/68;

Whereas numerous regulations in the beef and veal sector must be adapted in the light of the new nomenclature; whereas, under Article 15 of Regulation (EEC) N° 2658/87, the changes made may be of a technical nature only; whereas, accordingly, a provision should be introduced whereby all other adjustments to Council or Commission regulations on the common organization of the market in beef and veal should be made in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 27 of Regulation (EEC) N° 805/68, provided that such adjustments are required solely as a result of the introduction of the harmonized systems,
