COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2991/95 of 19 December 1995 amending Regulation (EEC) No 334/93 laying down detailed implementing rules for the use of land set aside for the Community of products not primarily intended for human or animal consumption

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1765/92 of 30 June 1992 establishing a support system for producers of certain arable crops (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2800/95 (2), in particular Article 12 thereof,

Whereas experience has shown that, when a collector who has lodged a security subsequently delivers the raw material under contract to a first processor, as it is the first processor, not the collector, who will process the raw material into its end product it would be more appropriate to enable that security to be released if the first processor has lodged an equivalent security with his competent authority;

Whereas Commission Regulation (EC) No 1870/95 (3) amending Regulation (EEC) No 334/93 (4) changed certain of the implementing rules in relation to the use of set-aside land for non-food purposes; whereas the Regulation came into force on 5 August 1995; whereas it is however appropriate that its provisions should apply to all contracts made in respect of the 1996 and subsequent harvests; whereas for contracts made before the coming into force of the Regulation only those provisions should apply which do not disadvantage the parties to such contracts; whereas, for reasons of administrative control it is necessary that the whole of the security be lodged by 15 April 1996, whether contracts made in respect of the 1996 harvest were made before or after the coming into force of the Regulation;

Whereas it has been ascertained that as certain raw materials have no possibility of being used for human or animal consumption, such raw materials should be subject to simplified controls;

Whereas it is therefore necessary to amend Regulation (EEC) No 334/93;

Whereas certain language versions are incorrect; whereas it is therefore necessary to correct those language versions;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Joint Management Committee for Cereals, Oils and Fats and Dried Fodder, and Sugar,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
