COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 466/96 of 14 March 1996 amending Regulation (EEC) No 1164/89 laying down detailed rules concerning the aid for fibre flax and hemp

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1308/70 of 29 June 1970 on the common organization of the market in flax and hemp (1), as last amended by the Act of Accession of Austria, Finland and Sweden and by Regulation (EC) No 3290/94 (2), and in particular Article 4 (5) thereof,

Whereas Article 4 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1164/89 (3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1741/95 (4), provides that the aid for flax and hemp provided for in Article 4 of Regulation (EEC) No 1308/70 shall be granted only if the operation aimed at terminating the growing cycle of the plant has been carried out after seed formation; whereas the phrase 'after seed formation` may give rise to different interpretations in producer Member States; whereas, in order to ensure uniform application of the aid scheme, the exact meaning of that phrase should be specified;

Whereas Annexes A and B to Regulation (EEC) No 1164/89 contain a list of the varieties of flax grown mainly for fibre and of the varieties of hemp eligible for aid; whereas, since new varieties are now being used, those Annexes should be supplemented;
