THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2792/1999 of 17 December 1999 laying down the detailed rules and arrangements regarding Community structural assistance in the fisheries sector(1), and in particular Articles 8(7) and 21 thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Article 1 of Council Regulation (EC) No 1263/1999 of 21 June 1999 on the Financial Instrument for Fisheries Guidance(2) provides that the assistance will be financed within the general framework of Structural Funds programming.

(2) The programmes must be implemented in accordance with Council Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999 of 21 June 1999 laying down general provisions on the Structural Funds(3), and in particular Articles 31 to 33 and 37 to 39 thereof.

(3) With a view to the comprehensive monitoring of programme implementation, the annual reports referred to in Article 37 of Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999 must contain quantified and codified infomation in the form of strictly coordinated progress reports. The information concerned must cover not only projects implemented, being implemented or planned under the FIFG but also the withdrawal of existing vessels, carried out without public assistance in accordance with Article 9 of Regulation (EC) No 2792/1999.

(4) The progress reports must be compatible with Commission Regulations (EC) No 2090/98(4), (EC) No 643/2000(5) and (EC) No 1685/2000(6).

(5) The Commission must have available to it appropriate information concerning all structural measures carried out by the Member States in the fisheries sector, including the aid measures referred to in Article 19(2) of Regulation (EC) No 2792/1999. A harmonised system for the declaration by Member States of the amount of the aid paid for those purposes should therefore be established.

(6) With a view to the overall monitoring and evaluation of the impact of joint enterprises, a list should be drawn up of relevant and comparable data, to be sent to the Commission at the same time as the reports referred to in Article 8(5) of Regulation (EC) No 2792/1999.

(7) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Fisheries and Acquaculture,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

(b) the withdrawal of existing vessels, carried out without public aid, in accordance with Article 9 of Regulation (EC) No 2792/1999.

The projects are "implemented" or "being implemented" when the eligible expenditure has been certified and actually paid by the beneficiaries. The projects are "planned" when the credits have been engaged following an administrative decision granting public aid.

2. Each year before 30 April, progress reports shall be submitted to the Commission, in electronic form, in accordance with the model shown in Annex I to this Regulation.

One original paper copy shall be required in addition.

Article 2

Member States shall take the necessary steps to ensure that the managing authority forwards to the Commission, in electronic form, the following information concerning each joint enterprise within the meaning of Article 8 of Regulation (EC) No 2792/1999:

(a) at the latest six months after the decision granting the premium, the basic information concerning the joint enterprise, in accordance with the model shown in Annex III(a) to this Regulation. Where necessary, this information shall be updated and forwarded again to the Commission;

(b) at the same time as the report on the implementation of the activity plan, information concerning the activity carried on during the period covered by the report in question, in accordance with the model shown in Annex III(b) to this Regulation.

Article 4

The detailed rules for the implementation of assistance granted by the FIFG for schemes defined by Council Regulation (EC) No 2468/98(7), including aid applications approved after 1 January 1994 under Council Regulations (EEC) No 4028/86(8) and (EEC) No 4042/89(9), shall continue to be governed by Commission Regulation (EC) No 1796/95(10).

(1) This indicator may be used for vessels less than 24 metres between perpendiculars only, and only up to 31.12.2003 (see rules on tonnage measurement).

(2) This indicator must be used:

- for vessels over 24 metres between perpendiculars from 1.1.2000, and

- for all vessels from 1.1.2004,

(see rules on tonnage measurement)

(3) This indicator refers to power declared in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 2090/98 (engine power).

(4) All vessels constructed (measure 21) must have their tonnage measured in GT, and the tonnage of all modernised vessels (mesure 22) must be remeasured in GT (Annex IV, point 1.4(a) to Regulation (EC) No 2792/1999). The indicator GRT must not be used, therefore, for newly built or modernised vessels. If modernisation does not entail any increase in tonnage, the corresponding quantity is 0.

(5) This indicator refers to the total power of the vessel's new engine, and not to the increase in power as a result of the new engine. If modernisation does not include a new engine, the corresponding quantity is 0.

(6) In this measure, an action may include all the projects in a given NUTS III level region; in that case, the relevant quantity is an aggregate.

(7) In aquaculture/processing, a unit = a fishfarm/a processing plant or workshop.

(8) The indicators for this action refer to the physical production capacity of the units built (or the increase in physical production capacity as a result of the extension of existing units) and not the quantity actually produced in the first year.

(9) In this measure, an action may combine all the projects in a programme; in that case, replace in the table in Annex I to this Regulation the NUTS III code by the NUTS code for the Member State (column 4) and give the aggregate quantities.

(10) Within the meaning of Rules No 8 (venture capital and loan funds), No 9 (guarantee funds) and No 10.2 (aid via lessor) in Regulation (EC) No 1685/2000.

(11) This number of days applies equally to vessels and fishermen.

(12) Within the meaning of the categories of expenditure referred to in point 2 of Rule No 11 (costs incurred in managing and implementing the Structural Funds) of Regulation (EC) No 1685/2000.
