COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2016/2129

of 5 December 2016

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 laying down rules for the application of Council Regulation (EC) No 1217/2009 setting up a network for the collection of accountancy data on the incomes and business operation of agricultural holdings in the European Union

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1217/2009 of 30 November 2009 setting up a network for the collection of accountancy data on the incomes and business operation of agricultural holdings in the European Union (1), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 5(1), Article 5a(2) and (4), Article 5b(7) and the third subparagraph of Article 8(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Annex I to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 (2) sets out the threshold of economic size per Member State. Given that the importance of larger agricultural holdings in the agricultural structure in Bulgaria and Austria is increasing, it is appropriate to increase the threshold of economic size for these Member States laid down in that Annex.

(2)

Annex II to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 sets out the number of returning holdings per Member State and per Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN) division. Due to structural changes of agriculture in Bulgaria, it is appropriate to adjust accordingly the number of returning holdings per division for this Member State laid down in that Annex. Due to structural changes in agriculture in Denmark and Austria which have led to a decrease in the overall number of holdings, it is appropriate to decrease accordingly the number of returning holdings for those Member States laid down in that Annex.

(3)

In view of the changes provided for in this Regulation, Bulgaria, Denmark and Austria should be requested to revise their respective selection plans for the accounting year 2017.

(4)

Part B of Annex IV to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 sets out the correspondence between the headings of the Farm Structure Surveys (FSS) referred to in Regulation (EC) No 1166/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) and the farm return of the FADN. Since no calculation of the standard output for ‘Other rabbits’ is required, it is necessary to adjust the correspondence between the headings of the FSS and the FADN by removing the mentioned characteristic.

(5)

Annexes VI, VII and VIII to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 set out the method for the calculation to determine the standard outputs, the method by which the importance of the gainful activities is estimated and the form and layout of the farm return respectively. For the sake of clarity, those Annexes should provide for additional information and clarification relating to certain instructions and definitions.

(6)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for the Farm Accountancy Data Network,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 is amended as follows:

(1)

in Article 3(2), the following subparagraph is added:

‘Bulgaria, Denmark and Austria shall revise the respective selection plans they notified for the accounting year 2017. They shall notify their respective revised selection plans for that accounting year to the Commission by 31 March 2017.’;

(2)

Annexes I, II, IV, VI, VII and VIII are amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from the accounting year 2017.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 5 December 2016.

For the Commission
