Release and forfeiture of security

1.  The security provided for in Article 4 shall be released where a tender, offer or application is inadmissible or has not been accepted.

2.  In the case of intervention buying-in, the security shall be released when:

CHAPTER III

SPECIFIC RULES RELATED TO PUBLIC INTERVENTION

Article 6

Intervention storage places

1.  Paying agencies shall ensure that intervention storage places (‘storage places’) are suitable for the storage and keeping in good condition of the products bought-in, including storage temperature, and meet the requirements referred to in Article 7.

2.  During the periods when intervention buying-in is taking place, paying agencies shall publish and keep updated information concerning the storage places available in their territories.

Article 7

Requirements for storage places

1.  Each storage place shall fulfil the following requirements:

(a) it has available the necessary technical equipment to take over the products;

(b) it is able to remove quantities in order to comply with the removal period indicated in Article 37(2) of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1240;

(c) in the case of cereals, rice, butter and skimmed milk powder, it has a minimum storage capacity as laid down in Article 3(1) of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1240.

2.  The paying agencies may lay down technical standards for storage places and shall take any other measures necessary to ensure that products taken into storage are properly conserved.

3.  In the case of the beef sector, the storage places shall permit:

(a) storage of carcasses, half carcasses and carcasses cut into quarters taken over and deboned;

(b) freezing of all deboned meat to be stored without further processing.

However, where deboning is not a condition of the tender, the storage place shall permit bone-in meat to be taken over.

When the cutting plant and refrigeration plant of a storage place are connected with the slaughterhouse or the operator, the paying agency shall carry out the appropriate checks in order to ensure that beef subject to intervention is handled and stored in accordance with this Regulation.

The cold stores located in the Member State exercising jurisdiction over the paying agency shall be capable of holding all beef allocated by the paying agency for at least three months under technically satisfactory conditions.

However, where there is insufficient cold storage capacity in a Member State for the allocated beef, the paying agency concerned may arrange for such beef to be stored in another Member State and notify the Commission accordingly.



CHAPTER IV

SPECIFIC RULES RELATED TO AID FOR PRIVATE STORAGE

Article 8

Payment of aid for private storage

1.  The aid for private storage shall be paid for the contractual quantity if the quantity stored during the contractual storage period represents at least 99 % of the contractual quantity.

However, in respect of the following products, the aid shall be paid for the contractual quantity if the quantity stored during the contractual storage period represents at least 97 % of the contractual quantity:

(a) sugar that is stored separately from other sugar in the silo designated by the operator;

(b) olive oil;

(c) flax fibre;

(d) beef, pigmeat, sheepmeat and goatmeat, whereas the contractual quantity relates to the fresh meat entering the store;

(e) cheese;

(f) skimmed milk powder in ‘big bags’ as referred to in point (c) of Part VI of Annex VI.

2.  Except in cases of force majeure, if the quantity stored during the contractual storage period, including in the case of sugar stored in bulk in the silo designated by the operator, is less than the percentage of the contractual quantity referred to in paragraph 1, no aid shall be paid. Nevertheless, in the case of cheese, if the paying agency deems that the cheese in question was subject to natural weight loss during the storage period, this weight loss shall not lead to a reduction of the aid or the forfeiture of the security.

3.  Aid shall only be paid where the contractual storage period respects the storage period laid down in the Implementing Regulation opening the tendering procedure or fixing the amount of aid in advance.

4.  If checks during storage or on removal reveal that the products are defective, no aid shall be paid for the quantities concerned. The remainder of the storage lot eligible for aid shall be not less than the minimum quantity provided for in the Implementing Regulation opening the tendering procedure or fixing the amount of aid in advance.

The same rule shall apply where part of a storage lot or batch is removed from storage for reasons of defectiveness before the end of the minimum storage period or before the first date allowed for removal operations, where such a date is provided for in the Implementing Regulation opening the tendering procedure or fixing the amount of aid in advance.

Defective products shall not be included in the calculation of the quantity stored referred to in paragraph 1.

5.  Except in cases of force majeure, where in respect of the total quantity stored the operator fails to respect the end of the contractual storage period, which has been fixed in accordance with Article 48(2) of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1240, the aid for the contract in question shall be reduced by 10 % for each calendar day of non-compliance.

However, this reduction shall not exceed 100 % of the aid.

6.  No aid for private storage shall be paid in respect of the contract concerned where the requirement laid down in Article 53(3) of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1240 is not complied with.
