COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 204/2006

of 6 February 2006

adapting Council Regulation (EEC) No 571/88 and amending Commission Decision 2000/115/EC with a view to the organisation of Community surveys on the structure of agricultural holdings in 2007

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to the Council Regulation (EEC) No 571/88 of 29 February 1988 on the organisation of Community surveys on the structure of agricultural holdings (1), and in particular Articles 5 and 8 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The list of characteristics set out in Annex I to Regulation (EEC) No 571/88 has to be adapted in order to follow the evolution of the agricultural sector and of the common agricultural policy.

(2)

In certain Member States, the results from the Community survey on the structure of agricultural holdings carried out in 2003 have shown that some characteristics are insignificant, and that others have gained in importance.

(3)

Council Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003 of 29 September 2003 establishing common rules for direct support schemes under the common agricultural policy and establishing certain support schemes for farmers and amending Regulations (EEC) No 2019/93, (EC) No 1452/2001, (EC) No 1453/2001, (EC) No 1454/2001, (EC) 1868/94, (EC) No 1251/1999, (EC) No 1254/1999, (EC) No 1673/2000, (EEC) No 2358/71 and (EC) No 2529/2001 (2) introduces the maintenance of land in good agricultural and environmental condition as an agricultural activity, which makes the revision of various definitions necessary.

(4)

Both Regulation (EEC) No 571/88 itself and the decision laying down the definitions and explanations relating to that Regulation, namely Commission Decision 2000/115/EC (3) should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee for Agricultural Statistics established by Council Decision 72/279/EEC (4),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex I to Regulation (EEC) No 571/88 is replaced by Annex I to this Regulation.

Article 2

Annex I to Decision 2000/115/EC is amended as shown in Annex II to this Regulation.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 6 February 2006.

ANNEX II

AMENDMENTS TO ANNEX I TO DECISION 2000/115/EC

1.

The definition of the agricultural holding is replaced by the following:

‘AGRICULTURAL HOLDING

I.

A single unit both technically and economically, which has single management and which produces agricultural products or maintains its land which is no longer used for production purposes in good agricultural and environmental condition, in line with Council Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003 (1). The holding may also provide other supplementary (non-agricultural) products and services.

2.

The following point 1.4 is added to the explanatory note related to the agricultural holding:

‘1.4.

With the 2003 CAP reform, “Maintaining the land in good agricultural and environmental condition” was introduced as an agricultural activity (Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003). Besides this activity, farmers do not have to have any other agricultural activity in order to have access to the single payment scheme.’

3.

The explanatory note of subparagraph C/6(a) is replaced by the following:

‘Gifts to family and relatives without remuneration should be considered as household consumption. Final production as referred to under this characteristic follows the definition of final output used in the agricultural accounts (i.e. agricultural products used as input for other production, such as forage for animal production, are not included in final output).

The 50 % should of course not be considered as an exact threshold, but just as an order of magnitude.’

4.

Paragraph D is amended as follows:

4.1.

the third paragraph of the explanatory notes to paragraph D is replaced by the following:

‘Arable land comprises crop categories D/1 to D/20, D/23 to D/35, fallow land without any subsidies (D/21) and fallow land subject to the payment of subsidies, with no economic use (D/22).’,

4.2.

the title of subparagraph D/22 is replaced by the following:

4.3.

the definition of subparagraph D/22 is replaced by the following:

‘I.

Areas no longer used for production purposes for which the holding is entitled to financial aid. This includes areas which, in line with Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003 (or, where applicable, the most recent legislation), are no longer used for production purposes, are maintained in good agricultural and environmental condition, and are eligible for the single payment or for the payment of set-aside entitlements. If there are similar national schemes, these areas are also included under this characteristic.

Areas taken out of production for more than five years, under schemes which do not require the maintenance in good agricultural and environmental condition, should be recorded under H/1 + H/3.’

5.

The following subparagraph F/3 is added:

‘F/3   Permanent grassland and meadows no longer used for production purposes and eligible for the payment of subsidies

I.

Areas of permanent grassland and meadows no longer used for production purposes, which, in line with Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003 (or, where applicable, the most recent legislation), are maintained in good agricultural and environmental condition and are eligible for the single payment.’

6.

Paragraph I is amended as follows:

6.1.

the title of paragraph I is replaced by the following:

6.2.

the title of subparagraph I/8 is replaced by the following:

6.3.

in subparagraph I/8, points (a) and (b) are replaced by the following:

‘(a)

areas no longer used for production purposes, subject to the payment of subsidies (already recorded under D/22 and F/3)

(b)

areas used for the production of agricultural raw material for non-food purposes (e.g. rape, trees, bushes, etc., including lentils, chick peas and vetches; already recorded under D and G)’,

6.4.

the definition of subparagraph I/8 is replaced by the following:

‘I.

Areas no longer used for production purposes for which the holding is entitled to financial aid. This includes areas which, in line with Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003 (or, where applicable, the most recent legislation), are no longer used for production purposes, are maintained in good agricultural and environmental condition, and are eligible for the single payment or for the payment of set-aside entitlements. If there are similar national schemes, these areas are also included under this characteristic.’
