COMMISSION DECISION of 15 February 1996 adapting Annex I of Council Regulation (EEC) No 571/88 on the organization of Community surveys on the structure of agricultural holdings between 1988 and 1997 and Commission Decision No 89/651/EEC relating to the definitions of the characteristics and to the list of agricultural products for these surveys (96/170/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 571/88 of 29 February 1988 on the organization of Community surveys on the structure of agricultural holdings between 1988 and 1997 (1), as last amended by Commission Decision 94/677/EEC (2), and in particular Article 8 (1) and (2) and Article 15 thereof,

Whereas, in accordance with Article 8 (1) and (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 571/88, changes to the catalogue of survey characteristics for the surveys from 1995-1997, as well as to the definitions of the survey characteristics and to the delimitation of the regions and survey districts, are laid down under the procedure given in Article 15 of this Regulation, i.e. by Commission Decision following the opinion delivered by the Standing Committee on Agricultural Statistics;

Whereas it is necessary, on account of the accession of Austria, Finland and Sweden, to adapt Annex I of Regulation (EEC) No 571/88 to the special agricultural features of these countries;

Whereas the results of the Community surveys on the structure of agricultural holdings provided for in Regulation (EEC) No 571/88 can be in concordance throughout the European Community only if the terms contained in the list of characteristics are understood and applied in a uniform manner;

Whereas Commission Decision 89/651/EEC (3) which lays down the definitions, regions and survey districts to be applied in the framework of the 1988 to 1997 structure surveys must also be adapted and that it is therefore advantageous to add, on this occasion, the definitions of survey characteristics which have been newly introduced for other reasons;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Agricultural Statistics,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

Annex I of Regulation (EEC) No 571/88 and Annex I of Decision 89/651/EEC are amended in view of agricultural surveys 1995 and 1997 in accordance with Annexes I and II hereto.
