COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 578/97 of 1 April 1997 fixing advance payments in respect of the production levies in the sugar sector for the 1996/97 marketing year

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1785/81 of 30 June 1981 on the common organization of the markets in the sugar sector (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1599/96 (2), and in particular Article 28 (8) thereof,

Whereas Article 5 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1443/82 of 8 June 1982 laying down detailed rules for the application of the quota system in the sugar sector (3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 392/94 (4), provides for the fixing before 1 April and the collection before the following 1 June, of the unit amounts to be paid by sugar producers, isoglucose producers and inulin syrup producers as advance payments of the production levies for the current marketing year; whereas the estimate of the basic production levy and of the B levy, referred to in Article 6 of Regulation (EEC) No 1443/82, gives an amount which is more than 60 % of the maximum amounts indicated in Article 28 (3), (4) and (5) of Regulation (EEC) No 1785/81; whereas, in accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EEC) No 1443/82, the unit amounts for sugar and inulin syrup should therefore be fixed at 50 % of the maximum amounts concerned and for isoglucose the unit amount of the advance payment should therefore be fixed at 40 % of the unit amount of the basic production levy estimated for sugar;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Sugar,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
