COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 6/2008

of 4 January 2008

laying down detailed rules for granting private storage aid for sheepmeat and goatmeat

(Codified version)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2529/2001 of 19 December 2001 on the common organisation of the market in sheepmeat and goatmeat (1), and in particular Articles 12(2) and 24 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2799/98 of 15 December 1998 establishing agrimonetary arrangements for the euro (2), and in particular Articles 3(2) and 9 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3446/90 of 27 November 1990 on laying down detailed rules for granting private storage aid for sheepmeat and goatmeat (3) has been substantially amended several times (4). In the interests of clarity and rationality the said Regulation should be codified.

(2)

Detailed rules for granting private storage aid for sheepmeat and goatmeat must be adopted in addition to the general rules laid down in Article 12(1) by Regulation (EC) No 2529/2001.

(3)

If it is to achieve its purpose, such aid should be granted only to natural or legal persons established in the Community whose activities and experience in the sector offer sufficient certainty that storage will be effected in a satisfactory manner and who have adequate cold storage capacity within the Community.

(4)

For the same reason, aid should be granted only for the storage of products in frozen condition, of sound and fair merchantable quality and of Community origin as defined by Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2454/93 of 2 July 1993 laying down provisions for the implementation of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92 establishing the Community Customs Code (5), with a level of radioactivity not exceeding the maximum levels permitted under Council Regulation (EEC) No 737/90 of 22 March 1990 on the conditions governing imports of agricultural products originating in third countries following the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power station (6).

(5)

Provision should be made to ensure that the animals involved are slaughtered exclusively in slaughterhouses which are approved and supervised.

(6)

To make the scheme more effective, contracts must relate to a certain minimum quantity, differentiated by product as appropriate, and the obligations to be fulfilled by the contracting party, in particular those enabling the intervention agency to make an effective inspection of storage conditions, must be specified.

(7)

The amount of the security designed to ensure compliance with the contractual obligations should be fixed at a percentage of the amount of the aid.

(8)

Pursuant to Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2220/85 of 22 July 1985 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of securities for agricultural products (7), the primary requirements to be met for the release of the security should be defined. Storing the contracted quantity for the agreed period constitutes one of the primary requirements for the granting of private storage aid for sheepmeat and goatmeat. To take account of commercial practice and for practical reasons, a certain tolerance in respect of the said quantity should be permitted.

(9)

A measure of proportionality should apply in the release of the security and the granting of aid where certain requirements relating to the quantities to be stored are not met.

(10)

In order to improve the efficiency of the scheme, the contracting party should be permitted to receive an advance payment of aid subject to a security and rules should be laid down regarding the submission of applications for aid, the supporting documents to be produced and the time limit for payment.

(11)

Pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 2799/98 and Commission Regulation (EC) No 1913/2006 laying down detailed rules for the application of the agrimonetary system for the euro in agriculture and amending certain regulations (8), the operative events to determine the exchange rate applicable to the grant of aid and amount of security in the case of private storage aid should be specified.

(12)

Previous experience with other schemes for private storage of agricultural products has shown the need to specify to what extent Council Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 1182/71 determining the rules applicable to periods, dates and time limits (9) applies to the determination of periods, dates and time limits referred to under such schemes and to define precisely the dates when contractual storage begins and ends.

(13)

In particular, Article 3(4) of Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 1182/71 specifies that where the last day of a period is a public holiday, Sunday or Saturday, the period should end on the expiry of the last hour of the following working day. The application of this provision to storage contracts may not be in the interest of storers and may even result in inequality of treatment. Therefore, a derogation should be made with regard to the determination of the last day of storage under contract.

(14)

Provision should be made for a measure of proportionality in the granting of aid where the storage period is not fully observed.

(15)

In accordance with Article 12(1) of Regulation (EC) No 2529/2001 the tendering procedure is applicable. when there is a particularly difficult situation of market in one or more zones of quotation. Invitations to submit tenders should result from Commission Decisions taken in accordance with the procedure referred to in Article 25(2) of that same Regulation.

(16)

The purpose of the tendering procedure is to determine the amount of the aid. In the selection of successful tenderers, preference should be given to the tenders most advantageous for the Community. Therefore, a maximum amount of aid may be set for which tenders would be accepted. If no tender is acceptable, none need be accepted.

(17)

Provision should be made for a system of checks to ensure that aid is not granted unduly. For this purpose the Member States should make checks appropriate to the various stages of storage.

(18)

Steps should be taken to prevent and to penalise irregularities and fraud. For this purpose, it is appropriate to exclude, in the case of false declaration, the contracting party from the granting of aids for private storage for six months following the detection of a false declaration.

(19)

To give the Commission an overall view of the effect of the private storage scheme, the Member States should supply it with the necessary information.

(20)

The measures laid down in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Sheep and Goats,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

CHAPTER I

GENERAL PROVISIONS

Article 1

The grant of private storage aid, as provided for in Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 2529/2001, shall be subject to the conditions set out in this Regulation.

4.   Contracts may not relate to less than a minimum quantity to be determined for each product.

5.   The meat must be placed in storage in a fresh state and stored in a frozen state.

Article 3

1.   Contract applications or tenders and contracts shall relate to only one of the products for which aid may be granted.

3.   Contracts shall include the following particulars:

(a)

a declaration by which the contracting party undertakes to only place in storage and to only store products which fulfil the conditions laid down in Article 2(2) and (3);

to place the agreed quantity of product in storage within the time limits laid down in Article 4 and to store it at his own risk and expense in conditions ensuring the maintenance of the characteristics of the products referred to in Article 2(2) for the contractual period, without altering, substituting or transferring to another warehouse the stored products; however, in exceptional cases and on duly motivated request, the intervention agency may authorise a relocation of the stored products;

(b)

to advise the intervention agency with which he has concluded the contract, in due time before the entry into storage of each individual lot, within the meaning of the second subparagraph of Article 4(1), of the date and place of storage as well as the nature and quantity of the product to be stored; the intervention agency may require that this information is given at least two working days before the placing in storage of each individual lot;

(c)

2.   Contractors may, under the permanent supervision of the intervention agency and during the period of placing in storage, cut, partially debone or debone all or part of the products, provided that a sufficient quantity of carcasses is employed to ensure the tonnage for which the contract has been concluded is stored and that all the meat resulting from such operation is placed in storage. Intention to make use of this facility shall be notified not later than the day on which placing in storage begins. However, the intervention agency may require that such notification take place at least two working days before the placing in store of each individual lot.

The large tendons, cartilages, bones, pieces of fat and other scraps left over from cutting, partial deboning or deboning may not be stored.

3.   Placing in storage shall begin, for each individual lot of the contractual quantity, on the day on which it comes under the control of the intervention agency.

(a)

at the place of storage, where the meat is frozen on the premises;

(b)

at the place of freezing, where the meat is frozen in suitable facilities outside the place of storage.

However, in the case of meat placed in storage after cutting, partial deboning or deboning, weighing shall be carried out on products effectively placed in storage and may be done at the place of cutting, partial deboning or deboning.

The determination of weights of products to be placed in storage shall not take place before the conclusion of a contract.

The advance payment shall not exceed the amount of aid corresponding to a storage period of three months.

Article 7

1.   Except in cases of force majeure the application for payment of the aid and the supporting documents must be lodged with the competent authority within six months following the end of the maximum contractual storage period.

4.   The contracting party shall advise the intervention agency in good time before the intended commencement of removal from storage; the intervention agency may require that this information is given at least two working days before that date.

Where the obligation to notify the intervention agency is not complied with but where sufficient evidence has been furnished, within 30 days following removal from the warehouse, to the satisfaction of the competent authority as to the date of removal from storage and the quantities concerned aid shall be granted, without prejudice to Article 6(3) and 15 % of the security shall be declared forfeited in respect of the quantity concerned.

For all other cases of non-compliance with this obligation, no aid shall be paid in respect of the contract concerned, and the whole of the security shall be declared forfeited in respect of the contract concerned.

5.   Subject to the cases of force majeure referred to in Article 10, where the contracting party fails to observe the end of the contractual storage period, each calendar day of non-compliance shall entail a reduction of 10 % in the amount of aid for the contract in question.

Article 10

In cases of force majeure where the performance of the contractual obligations of a contracting party are affected, the competent authority of the Member State concerned shall decide on the measures which it deems necessary having regard to the circumstances invoked. That authority shall inform the Commission of each case of force majeure and of the action taken in respect thereof.

CHAPTER III

CHECKING AND SANCTIONS

Article 13

1.   Member States shall ensure that the conditions giving rise to entitlement to aid are fulfilled. For this purpose they shall designate the national authority to be responsible for checking storage operations.

the calculated date of the end of the minimum contractual storage period and, where Article 9(5) is applied, the actual date of removal.

3.   The contracting party or, where applicable, the operator of the warehouse, shall keep stock accounts available at the warehouse covering, by contract number:

(a)

the identification of the products placed in private storage;

(b)

the date of placing in storage and the calculated date of the end of the minimum contractual storage period and the actual date of removal from storage;

Each pallet and, where applicable, each item individually stored must be marked so that the contract number, the description of the product and the weight are shown. The date of placing in storage must be shown on each individual lot placed in storage on a given day.

When the products are placed in storage, the authority responsible for checking operations shall verify the identification referred to in the first subparagraph and may seal the products placed in storage.

5.   The authority responsible for checking operations shall undertake:

(a)

for each contract, a check on the compliance with all the obligations laid down in Article 3(4);

The sealing or handling costs of the check are borne by the contracting party.

6.   Checks pursuant to paragraph 5 must be the subject of a report stating:

(a)

the date of the check;

(b)

its duration; and

(c)

the operations conducted.

The report on the check must be signed by the official responsible and countersigned by the contracting party or, where applicable, by the operator of the warehouse and must be included in the payment file.

7.   In the case of significant irregularities affecting at least 5 % of the quantities of products covered by a single contract subject to the checks, the verification shall be extended to a larger sample to be determined by the authority responsible for the checks.

Member States shall notify such cases to the Commission within four weeks.

Article 14

In the case where it is established and verified by the authority responsible for checking operations that the declaration as referred to in Article 3(3)(a) is a false declaration made either deliberately or through serious negligence, the contracting party in question shall be excluded from the private storage aid scheme for six months following the month in which the falsification is ascertained.

CHAPTER IV
