(2006/717/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Decision 79/491/EEC of 17 May 1979 laying down a code and standard rules for the transcription into a machine-readable form of the data of the basic surveys of areas under vines (2) has been substantially amended several times (3). In the interests of clarity and rationality, the said Decision should be codified.

(2)

Regulation (EEC) No 357/79 requires the Member States to submit to the Commission the information collected in the framework of the basic surveys of areas under vines in the form of a schedule of tables broken down by geographical units which are to be fixed in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 8 of the said Regulation, i.e. by a Commission Decision following an opinion from the Standing Committee on Agricultural Statistics.

(3)

Those Member States which process their survey results electronically of areas under vines should submit these results to the Commission in a machine-readable form. These codes for transmitting survey results are also determined in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 8 of Regulation (EEC) No 357/79.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Agricultural Statistics,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The machine-readable form for submission of the data provided for in Article 2 of Regulation (EEC) No 357/79 by those Member States which process their survey results electronically shall be magnetic tape.

Article 2

The codes and rules governing the transcription on to magnetic tape of the data provided for in Article 2 of Regulation (EEC) No 357/79 shall be as set out in Annexes I, II and III to this Decision.

Article 3

Decision 79/491/EEC is repealed.

References to the repealed Decision shall be construed as references to this Decision and shall be read in accordance with the correlation table set out in Annex V.

ANNEX I

MAGNETIC TAPE SPECIFICATION FOR THE DELIVERY TO EUROSTAT OF THE DATA OF THE BASIC SURVEYS OF THE AREAS UNDER VINES

(Regulation (EEC) No 357/79)

GENERAL PROVISIONS

I.

The information recorded in accordance with the characteristics referred to in Article 2 of Regulation (EEC) No 357/79 is to be delivered to Eurostat in the following form by those Member States which process their survey information electronically:

1.

The information shall refer to summaries of holdings if the survey is exhaustive (or to raised summaries of holdings if the survey is based on random sampling) and not to individual holdings.

2.

The information shall be delivered on nine-track magnetic tape/1 600 BPI (630 bytes/cm) standard label.

3.

The information shall be of fixed record length consisting of 308 positions, and shall be recorded in EBCDIC.

4.

The first two fields of each record shall contain information to permit identification. The first field (three positions) identifies the geographical unit, the codification of which is given in the detailed provisions and in Annex II.

5.

The second field (two positions) identifies the table in the schedule of tables provided for in Regulation (EEC) No 357/79. The codification of these tables is given in the detailed provisions.

6.

The number and size of the fields in each record vary according to the table. If all the 308 positions are not filled in the case of certain tables, the record shall be completed by blanks.

7.

The information shall be entered right justified in each field.

8.

Surface area data shall be given in hectares to two decimal places with a virtual point.

9.

Member States shall have a choice as to blocking factor and Eurostat must be informed as to what blocking factor has been used.

10.

The records shall be sorted according to geographical unit, table, and size classes or variety, in that order.

11.

Standard administrative procedures governing the transmission of the magnetic tape files to Eurostat shall be established jointly by Eurostat and the Member States.

II.

The following pages give for each table and for the various items of a record:

(a)

the codes which are to be used;

(b)

the maximum number of digits required for the item in question;

(c)

the consecutive numbering of the positions for the various items.
