WHEREAS SURVEYS OF THE PIG POPULATION SHOULD THEREFORE BE UNDERTAKEN IN ALL MEMBER STATES AT COMPARABLE POINTS IN TIME , COVERING THE SAME CATEGORIES AND CONDUCTED WITH COMPARABLE ACCURACY ; WHEREAS MONTHLY STATISTICS FOR SLAUGHTERINGS SHOULD BE SUPPLEMENTED AND FORECASTS OF PIGMEAT PRODUCTION SHOULD BE MADE REGULARLY AND IN RESPECT OF IDENTICAL PERIODS ;

WHEREAS THESE SURVEYS SHOULD IN PRINCIPLE BE RESTRICTED TO HOLDINGS WHICH NORMALLY ENGAGE IN THE BREEDING OR FATTENING OF PIGS ; WHEREAS IT IS NECESSARY , HOWEVER , IN ORDER THAT A COMPLETE PICTURE MAY BE OBTAINED , THAT A SPECIAL STUDY BE MADE TO COVER PIGS NOT COMING WITHIN THE FIELD OF SURVEY ;

WHEREAS , SINCE THERE ARE TO BE NO FURTHER COMPLETE JOINT CENSUSES , APPROPRIATE MEASURES MUST BE TAKEN TO IMPROVE SAMPLING CRITERIA TO AVOID DETERIORATION IN THE RESULTS OF SAMPLE SURVEYS ;

WHEREAS , SINCE THE STRUCTURE OF THE PIG-FARMING INDUSTRY CHANGES VERY QUICKLY , IT IS NECESSARY THAT A BREAKDOWN OF RESULTS OF THE SURVEYS BY CATEGORIES OF ANIMAL BE MADE AT LEAST EVERY TWO YEARS ;

WHEREAS , IN ORDER THAT IT MAY BE ASCERTAINED WHETHER THE SURVEY METHODS USED HAVE BEEN GIVING A CLEAR PICTURE OF CONTINUING DEVELOPMENTS IN THE PIG-FARMING INDUSTRY , A PROGRESS REPORT SHOULD BE SUBMITTED FROM TIME TO TIME ;

WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO ENSURE THAT EFFORTS ARE COORDINATED AS EFFICIENTLY AS POSSIBLE , ALL PROBLEMS ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS DIRECTIVE , WITH THE CONDUCT AND ANALYSIS OF THE SURVEYS , MUST BE THE SUBJECT OF CONSULTATION AND PERMANENT COOPERATION BETWEEN THE COMMISSION AND THE MEMBER STATES ;

WHEREAS , IN THE LIGHT OF EXPERIENCE GAINED IN PREVIOUS SURVEYS OF PIG PRODUCTION , IT IS NECESSARY TO INTRODUCE SOME MEASURE OF FLEXIBILITY INTO THE STATISTICAL CLASSIFICATION OF THE TECHNICAL FEATURES TO BE SURVEYED ;

WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO FACILITATE THE APPLICATION OF THE PROPOSED MEASURES , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR A PROCEDURE ESTABLISHING CLOSE COOPERATION BETWEEN THE MEMBER STATES AND THE COMMISSION WITHIN THE STANDING COMMITTEE FOR AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS , ESTABLISHED BY DECISION 72/279/EEC ( 6 ) ,
