amending Regulation (EEC) No 2742/90 laying down detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2204/90

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2204/90 of 24 July 1990 laying down additional general rules on the common organization of the market in milk and milk products as regards cheese(1), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 2583/2001(2), and in particular Article 5 thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Article 3(3) of Regulation (EEC) No 2204/90 provides for a penalty in cases where caseins and/or caseinates are used without authorisation in the manufacture of cheese. The Community penalty is equal to 110 % of the difference between the value of the skimmed milk needed to make 100 kg of caseins and/or caseinates resulting from the market price for skimmed-milk powder on the one hand and for caseins and caseinates on the other.

(2) Article 4(1) of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2742/90(3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 78/96(4), fixes the sum due for the quantities of casein and/or caseinates used without authorisation in the manufacture of cheese at EUR 183 per 100 kg, having regard to the prices for caseins and caseinates recorded on the markets in the second half of 1995. That sum should be reduced in view of the market price of skimmed-milk powder and the market price of caseins and caseinates recorded in the last quarter of 2001.

(3) The prices recorded on the markets in the last quarter of 2001 are EUR 206,96 per 100 kg for skimmed-milk powder and EUR 562,00 per 100 kg for caseins and caseinates.

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