Abstract

COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES Brussels, 29.05.1996 COM(96) 233 final Proposal for a COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) extending the period during which transitional measures may be adopted under Article 3 of Regulation (EC) No 3290/94 on the adjustments and transitional arrangements required in the agricultural sector in order to implement the agreements concluded during the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations (presented by the Commission) EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM The Community's undertakings in the agricultural sector under the Uruguay Round negotiations were essentially implemented by Council Regulation (EC) No 3290/94. Article 3 of that Regulation provides that the Commission, acting according to the management committee procedure, may, up to 30 June 1996, adopt the measures necessary to facilitate the switch-over from the old to the new arrangements and that these measures may not apply beyond that date. The Commission has used that power to ensure a smooth transition to the arrangements introduced as a result of the Uruguay Round in the common market organisations concerned. It also used Article 3 to ensure that the undertakings entered into by the Community in certain preferential agreements with third countries (for example, the Lomé Convention, association agreements with Mediterranean countries, etc.) were respected pending the adjustment of those agreements to the results of the Uruguay Round negotiations. Some of those agreements are currently being adjusted, but the process is unlikely to be completed before 30 June 1996, so the Council is requested to extend by one year the period during which the Commission may adopt transitional measures.
