Transition of Austria, Finland and Sweden to the premium schemes

1. As regards applications for the special premium referred to in Article 4 b of Regulation (EEC) No 805/68 that are lodged between 1 January and 31 March 1995, Austria, Finland and Sweden may reduce the retention period referred to in Article 4 of this Regulation to one month by age bracket.

Furthermore, in the case of applications lodged between 1 January and 28 February 1995, these Member States may make provision for the retention period to start before the application. In such cases, the application must be accompanied by a declaration from the producer certifying that the animal in question has actually been fattened and that the means of production that enabled this fattening exist on his holding. This declaration will be spot checked by the competent authorities.

2. As regards the applications for the suckler cow premium referred to in Article 4 d of Regulation (EEC) No 805/68 for the years 1995 and 1996, Sweden may, by way of derogation from Article 22 of this Regulation, consider cows of the breeds listed in Annex II to this Regulation and cows bred from a cross between these breeds as cows belonging to a meat breed within the meaning of the third indent of Article 4 a of Regulation (EEC) No 805/68, provided that they have been covered or inseminated by bulls of a meat breed.

The number of cows eligible under the above provisions may not exceed the number of suckler cows for which the producer received the premium for 1992 or 1993 in accordance with Swedish legislation.

3. By way of derogation from Articles 27 and 34 of this Regulation, Austria, Finland and Sweden shall establish the conditions governing allocation of the individual ceilings referred to in Article 4 d (1 a) of Regulation (EEC) No 805/68 during the first two years of application of the premium scheme, as well as those relating to the transfer and/or temporary leasing of rights to the suckler cow premium. These Member States shall submit these conditions to the Commission for examination before 31 March 1995.
