COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 93/77/EEC of 21 September 1993 relating to fruit juices and certain similar products

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Articles 43 and 100a thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

In cooperation with the European Parliament (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (2),

Whereas Council Directive 75/726/EEC of 17 November 1975 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States concerning fruit juices and certain similar products (3) has been frequently and substantially amended; whereas for reasons of clarity and rationality the said Directive should be consolidated;

Whereas in order to contribute towards the establishment of a single market for fruit juices and fruit nectars, to lay down conditions of production which take account of consumer requirements and to facilitate trade relations on the basis of fair competition, common rules must be adopted governing composition, use of reserved descriptions, manufacturing specifications and labelling of the products concerned;

Whereas existing differences between national provisions governing these products constitute barriers to free movement and create unfair conditions of competition;

Whereas it is essential to establish manufacturing and labelling rules for juices and nectars intended for direct human consumption and to lay down rules for their raw materials while ensuring that the reserved descriptions in this Directive cannot be abused;

Whereas these provisions should, pursuant to the second paragraph of Article 20 of Council Directive 79/112/EEC of 18 December 1978 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the labelling, presentation and advertising of foodstuffs (4), be adapted to the rules laid down in the said Directive;

Whereas, pending the adoption of Community provisions in this field, Member States should, for the time being, be free to lay down rules governing the labelling of products not for sale either to the ultimate consumer or to mass caterers;

Whereas the establishment of the characteristics of the products referred to by this Directive must be capable of being adapted to scientific and technical developments; whereas the adoption thereof should be entrusted to the Commission so as to simplify and expedite the procedure;

Whereas the same applies to the determination of methods of analysis for checking the purity criteria of the additives and processing aid used in the manufacture of fruit juices and nectars and to the determination of the sampling procedure and the methods of analysis required for checking the composition and the manufacturing specifications of these juices and nectars;

Whereas it is desirable that for all cases where the Community empowers the Commission to implement rules relating to foodstuffs provision should be made for establishing close cooperation between the Member States and the Commission within the Standing Committee on Foodstuffs set up by Decision 69/414/EEC (5);

Whereas in some cases national provisions must be maintained and a review clause applied;

Whereas in particular the conditions governing the possible use of L-Malic and DL-Malic acids in fruit juices and nectars must be examined in the context of more general rules governing the use of certain acids in foodstuffs;

Whereas it has appeared necessary, in view of the production conditions obtaining in certain Member States, to make it possible for such Member States to authorize the addition of citric acid to apple juice;

Whereas it is not possible to extract the juice of certain tropical fruits without the pulp; whereas it therefore appears necessary to provide for the possible use of fruit purée in the manufacture of certain fruit juices;

Whereas the option of replacing all sugars by honey within the limits laid down should be extended to all fruit nectars, and the option of using sugars and honey together in certain nectars should be removed;

Whereas the sweetening of certain concentrated fruit juices should be authorized only if they are intended for direct sale to the consumer, since the sweetening may not exceed the permitted limits at the final stage;

Whereas Member States must be free not to adopt in their entirety the lists of additives and processing aid provided for in this Directive until the identification and purity criteria for these products have been established;

Whereas this Directive must not affect the obligations of the Member States concerning the deadlines for transposal of Directive 75/726/EEC and the Directives that amended it,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

For the purposes of this Directive, the following definitions shall apply:

1. Fruit:
