COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 1418/2013

of 17 December 2013

concerning production and marketing plans pursuant to Regulation (EU) No 1379/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the common organisation of the markets in fishery and aquaculture products

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1379/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2013 on the Common organisation of the markets in fishery and aquaculture products (1), and in particular Article 29,

Whereas:

(1)

Producer organisations for fishery and aquaculture should contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the Common Fisheries Policy and the Common organisation of the markets in fishery and aquaculture products.

(2)

In particular, Regulation (EU) No 1379/2013 provides that fishery producer organisations deploy measures to promote sustainable fishing activities, reduce unwanted catches, improve traceability of fishery products and eliminate IUU fishing practices, and that aquaculture producer organisations deploy measures to promote sustainable aquaculture, ascertain consistency with national strategic plans and ensure sustainable aquaculture practices.

(3)

Furthermore, Regulation (EU) No 1379/2013 provides that fishery and aquaculture producer organisations deploy measures to improve marketing of products and economic returns of producers, stabilise the market and reduce environmental impact of fishing activities.

(4)

The production and marketing plans that producer organisations submit to their competent national authorities should aim at achieving the objectives of the Common organisation of the markets in fishery and aquaculture products.

(5)

To facilitate a homogeneous implementation by all producer organisations of the production and marketing plans and to make sure that the structure of the plans reflects the contribution to the achievement of the objectives referred to in Articles 3 and 7 of the Regulation (EU) No 1379/2013, a common format should be defined by the Commission.

(6)

Single time-limits for the submission of the production and marketing plans should be established in order to allow timely approval of those plans in view of the need to elaborate appropriate financial programming for financial support which would be available for the execution of those plans under a future Union legal act establishing the conditions for the financial support for maritime and fishery policy for the period 2014-2020.

(7)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Examination Committee for fishery and aquaculture products.
