Commission Regulation (EC) No 177/2004

of 30 January 2004

fixing the aid for tomatoes for processing under Council Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 for the 2004/2005 marketing year

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 of 28 October 1996 on the common organisation of the markets in processed fruit and vegetable products(1), and in particular Article 6(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Article 3(3) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1535/2003 of 29 August 2003 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 as regards the aid scheme for products processed from fruit and vegetables(2) stipulates that the Commission is to publish the amount of the aid for tomatoes after verification of compliance with the thresholds fixed in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 2201/96.

(2) Article 5(2) of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 provides that processing threshold overruns are to be calculated by comparing the threshold with the average quantity processed with aid over the three marketing years preceding that for which aid must be set.

(3) The average quantity of tomatoes delivered for processing with aid during the 2001/2002, 2002/2003 and 2003/2004 marketing years as notified by the Member States is 196004 tonnes higher than the Community threshold. The aid for 2004/2005 must therefore be adjusted accordingly in relation to the level set in Article 4(2) of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96.

(4) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Products Processed from Fruit and Vegetables,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

- EUR 29,36 per tonne in Spain for tomatoes intended for the production of products other than whole peeled tomatoes.
