COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 837/91 of 4 April 1991 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 Economic 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), and in particular the second paragraph of Article 1 and the second subparagraph of Article 3 (3) thereof,

Whereas Article 4 (1) of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2742/90 (2) fixes the sum due for quantities of casein and/or caseinates used without authorization having regard to the prices for casein and caseinates recorded on the markets in the second quarter of 1990; whereas the downward trend in those prices during the second half of 1990 requires that sum to be increased;

Whereas the Annex to Regulation (EEC) No 2742/90 gives the maximum percentages of casein and/or caseinates to be incorporated in cheese; whereas Article 2 (2) of that Regulation provides that the Annex may be amended to take account of reasoned applications providing evidence that there is a technical need for the addition of casein or caseinates; whereas the examination of two applications has enabled such a need to be demonstrated as regards powdered processed cheese and grated processed cheese; whereas that Annex should be supplemented accordingly;

Whereas the Management Committee for Milk and Milk Products has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION: Article 1

Regulation (EEC) No 2742/90 is hereby amended as follows:
