THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2073/92 of 30 June 1992 on promoting consumption in the Community and expanding the markets for milk and milk products (1), and in particular Article 4 thereof,

Whereas Article 4 (4) (b) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 3582/93 of 21 December 1993 on detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2073/92 on promoting consumption in the Community and expanding the markets for milk and milk products (2), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 750/97 (3), provides that applications for funding under the Regulation shall be valid only where they are accompanied by a written undertaking to commission an assessment study, at the applicant's expense, if this is requested by the Commission or by the competent body;

Whereas, in the light of experience, and to ensure a uniform approach with promotion measures for other agricultural products, these provisions should be modified; whereas evaluation studies should be carried out on all contracts for promotion measures; whereas the assessment studies should be considered a part of the measures in the programme and, as a consequence, should be financed under the same conditions as other planned measures; whereas the assessment study should be executed by an independent body selected by the competent authority after prior approval by the Commission;

Whereas, as a result of the latest enlargement of the European Community, the Annex comprising the list of competent bodies pursuant to Article 4 (2) must be amended;

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