COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 2392/86

of 24 July 1986

establishing a Community vineyard register

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 337/79 of 5 February 1979 on the common organization of the market in wine (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3805/85 (2), and in particular Article 64 (2) and Article 64a thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas Article 64a of Regulation (EEC) No 337/79 provides that, in order to create the conditions necessary for the full implementation of the measures laid down by the said Regulation, the Council is to adopt general rules establishing a Community vineyard register;

Whereas such a register is needed if vital information is to be obtained on production potential and trends, in order to ensure the proper functioning of the common organization of the market in wine, and in particular of the Community arrangements on intervention and planting, and monitoring measures;

Whereas, for economic and technical reasons, the obligation to establish a vineyard register should be dispensed with in respect of Member States where the total area under vines is very small;

Whereas the vineyard register must include basic information concerning the structure, changes thereto and the output of the holdings concerned; whereas, in order to ensure the practical utility of the register, provision should be made to group all the information in a single holding file; whereas, however; where national rules on the protection of individualized data does not allow such grouping, separate classification by holding should be allowed in so far as it does not jeopardize the objectives to be attained by establishing the register;

Whereas the register should include production files relating to the processing and marketing of wine products;

Whereas, on the one hand, the information to be included in the register should be available as soon as possible; whereas, on the other hand, in view of the amount of administrative work required to establish the register, provision should be made for a period of six years within which to complete the task of establishing the register; whereas, however, in view of the special importance of certain data in certain regions of production for the proper management of the market, provision may need to be made for shorter time limits to be laid down in those regions;

Whereas in order to complete the task of establishing the register within six years, Member States may proceed by stages; whereas reasonable time limits should be fixed for such stages with regard to the collection and processing of information, namely 18 months for existing information and 36 months for other;

Whereas provision should be made for the Member States, in conjunction with the Commission, to draw up programmes for the establishment of the register; whereas, in view of the extent of such programmes and the time required to carry them out, and of the necessity of having a uniform register in all the Community, it appears essential that...
