Whereas the application of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 986/89 (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2776/90 (4), should be facilitated by easing the administrative burden on consignors of wine products without this prejudicing the scope for the competent authorities to monitor the entry into free circulation of the products in question;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Wine,
HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
The second subparagraph of Article 7 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 986/89 is hereby replaced by the following:
'A single approved commercial document or a single commerical document may be drawn up to accompany the joint carriage from any one consignor to any one consignee of:
- two or more batches of the same category of products, or
- two or more batches of different categories of product, provided they are put up in labelled containers of a nominal volume of not more than five litres fitted with a recognized non-reusable closing device bearing an indication enabling the bottler to be identified.' Article 2
This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities. This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.
Done at Brussels, 12 March 1991.
