Draft Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) supplementing Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the categories of grapevine products, oenological practices and the applicable restrictions, the importation of wine originating in Canada, the inclusion of retailers among the categories of operators exempted from the obligation of keeping an inward and outward register. Language(s): English. Number of pages: 70, including the Annexes
Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 provides for Union rules on categories of grapevine products, oenological practices and the applicable restrictions for the wine sector and empowers the Commission to adopt delegated and implementing acts setting out the technical details on these matters in particular on authorised oenological, practices, products and processes for all the categories of wine products.
The purpose of this delegated act is therefore to supplement Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 as regards rules that are necessary to ensure the proper functioning of the internal market for grapevine products. In particular, it sets out the legal framework for the oenological practices and compounds that are authorised for the production of all the categories of grapevine products listed in Part II of Annex VII to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013.
The delegated act provides derogations to the acceptable limits for sulphur dioxides and volatile acidity.
The delegated act clarifies and simplifies the existing provisions. It also increases consistency between this regulation and the international code of oenological practices (OIV code) as regards Annex IA to this regulation. The Delegated act repeals and replaces Commission Regulation (EC) No 606/2009 of 10 July 2009 laying down certain detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 479/2008 as regards the categories of grapevine products, oenological practices and the applicable restrictions (OJ L 193 24 July 2009, p. 1).
