COMMISSION DECISION of 30 September 1993 on the definition of the measures eligible for Community financing in the programmes for the control of organisms harmful to plants or plant products in the French overseas departments, in the Azores and in Madeira (Only the French and Portuguese texts are authentic)

(93/522/EEC)THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3763/91 of 16 December 1991 introducing specific measures in respect of certain agricultural products for the benefit of the French overseas departments (1), as amended by Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3714/92 (2), and in particular the last sentence of the first subparagraph of Article 11 (3) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1600/92 of 15 June 1992 concerning specific measures for the Azores and Madeira relating to certain agricultural products (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3714/92, and in particular the last sentence of Article 33 (3) thereof,

Whereas Council Directive 77/93/EEC (4), as last amended by Directive 93/19/EEC (5), lays down protective measures against the introduction into the Community of organisms harmful to plants or plant products and against their spread within the Community;

Whereas the plant health of agricultural crops in the French overseas departments, in the Azores and in Madeira is subject to particular problems associated with the climate and the inadequacy of the control measures hitherto applied there; whereas programmes should be implemented to combat organisms harmful to plants or plant products in the Community's remoter regions; whereas the Community's financial contribution towards such programmes should be specified;

Whereas only certain eligible measures among the measures carried out by the Member States in question are affected by the Community's financial contribution;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plant Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The measures in the programmes for the control of organisms harmful to plants or plant products that are eligible for Community financing, as referred to in the last sentence of the first subparagraph of Article 11 (3) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 3763/91 for the French overseas departments and in the last sentence of Article 33 (3) of Regulation (EEC) No 1600/92 for the Azores and Madeira, are defined in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

The measures eligible for Community financing shall relate to all or part of the programmes for the control of harmful organisms as defined in Article 2 (1) (e) of Directive 77/93/EEC.

Article 3

The Community's financial contribution toward programmes for the control of organisms harmful to plants or plant products shall be decided on an annual basis and shall each year concern only measures that have led or will lead to expenditure during the six-month period preceding the date of notification of the Commission decisions concerning the Community's annual contribution to the financing of programmes for the control of harmful organisms for the benefit of the French overseas departments, the Azores and Madeira respectively and the period between the date of notification of those decisions and 31 December of the year of notification.

Article 4

The provisions of this Decision may be re-examined in the light of annual reports drawn up by France and Portugal and addressed to the Commission on the functioning of the programmes for control specific to the French overseas departments, to the Azores and to Madeira respectively.
