COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 936/2005

of 20 June 2005

amending Regulation (EC) No 14/2004 as regards the forecast supply balances for the French overseas departments for cereals, vegetable oils, processed fruit and vegetable products and certain live animals

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1452/2001 of 28 June 2001 introducing specific measures for certain agricultural products for the French overseas departments, amending Directive 72/462/EEC and repealing Regulations (EEC) No 525/77 and (EEC) No 3763/91 (Poseidom) (1), and in particular Articles 3(6) and 6(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 14/2004 of 30 December 2003 establishing the supply balances and Community aid for the supply of certain essential products for human consumption, for processing and as agricultural inputs and for the supply of live animals and eggs to the outermost regions under Council Regulations (EC) No 1452/2001, (EC) No 1453/2001 and (EC) No 1454/2001 (2), establishes forecast supply balances and fixes Community aid.

(2)

Current implementation of the annual supply balances for cereals, vegetable oils and processed fruit and vegetable products and for the supply of live animals for the French overseas departments shows that the quantities set for supplies of the above products are below requirements owing to unexpectedly higher demand.

(3)

There has been special demand for supplies of tinned tomatoes. The quantities of seed potatoes in the supply balance exceed current implementation. In the case of female buffalo, chicks and eggs, certain characteristics of the products to be supplied should be brought into line with the needs that have become apparent on holdings in the French overseas departments.

(4)

The quantities and descriptions of the above products and animals should be brought into line with actual needs in the French overseas departments concerned.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinions of the Management Committees concerned,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Regulation (EC) No 14/2004 is hereby amended as follows:

1.

parts 1 to 4 of Annex I are replaced by the text in Annex I hereto;

2.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Done at Brussels, 20 June 2005.
