COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2017/39

of 3 November 2016

on rules for the application of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to Union aid for the supply of fruit and vegetables, bananas and milk in educational establishments

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 922/72, (EEC) No 234/79, (EC) No 1037/2001 and (EC) No 1234/2007 (1), and in particular Articles 25 and 223(3) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on the financing, management and monitoring of the common agricultural policy and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 352/78, (EC) No 165/94, (EC) No 2799/98, (EC) No 814/2000, (EC) No 1290/2005 and (EC) No 485/2008 (2), and in particular Articles 62(2)(a) to (d) and 64(7)(a) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EU) No 1370/2013 of 16 December 2013 determining measures on fixing certain aids and refunds related to the common organisation of the markets in agricultural products (3), and in particular Article 5(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Section I of Chapter II of Title I of Part II of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 provides for two aid schemes intended to improve the distribution of agricultural products to children in educational establishments. The first scheme concerns the supply of fruit and vegetables, processed fruit and vegetables and banana products (school fruit and vegetables scheme) and the second concerns the supply of milk and milk products (school milk scheme). Those two schemes are replaced by one single scheme introduced by Regulation (EU) 2016/791 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4) with effect from the 2017/2018 school year. This single scheme provides for a new common framework for the Union aid for the supply of fruit and vegetables, processed fruit and vegetable products, fresh products of the banana sector (‘school fruit and vegetables’) and for the supply of milk and milk products (‘school milk’) to children in educational establishments (the ‘school scheme’). Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 as amended by Regulation (EU) 2016/791 also empowers the Commission to adopt delegated and implementing acts. In order to ensure the smooth functioning of the school scheme in accordance with the new framework, certain rules are to be adopted by means of such acts. Those acts should replace Commission Delegated Regulations (EU) No 1047/2014 (5) and (EU) 2016/247 (6), Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/248 (7) and Commission Regulation (EC) No 657/2008 (8). Those acts are repealed by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/40 (9).

(2)

In accordance with Article 23(8) of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013, Member States wishing to participate in the school scheme should draw up a strategy for its implementation. In order to be able to evaluate the implementation of the school scheme, the elements of the strategy should be defined. To limit the administrative burden, it is appropriate to distinguish those elements that should be included in the strategy from those that should be made available to the Commission upon request, namely in case of audits, if not included in the strategy.

(3)

In the interest of sound administration and budget management, Member States implementing the school scheme should submit a request for Union aid on an annual basis. In addition, the content of such request should be defined.

(4)

The content and frequency of applications for aid submitted by aid applicants should be determined as well as the rules concerning the submission of those applications. In addition, the evidence required to support the applications for aid should be specified. Penalties to be applied by the competent authority in case of late submission of applications for aid should also be laid down.

(5)

The conditions for payment of the aid should be further clarified to take account of the distinction between aid for the supply and distribution of products and aid for carrying out accompanying educational measures, monitoring, evaluation and publicity. The content of the documentary evidence required in support of each application for the payment of the aid should also be specified.

(6)

The deadlines for transfers between the financial allocations for school fruit and vegetables and for school milk, and the submission, format and content of transfer notifications to the Commission should be defined.

(7)

In order to maximise the full potential of available funds, the Commission should adopt the measures to reallocate unrequested Union aid between the Member States participating in the school scheme that have notified their willingness to use more than their available allocation, according to Article 5(5) of Regulation (EU) No 1370/2013. The conditions for those transfers of funds between Member States should be defined.

(8)

In order to assess the effectiveness of the school scheme and to help Member States to further improve their national and regional strategies, Member States should notify the Commission of the results and findings of their monitoring and evaluation of the scheme. For the sake of clarity, it is appropriate to fix a date for the notification of the results of the annual monitoring exercise and of the evaluation report to the Commission. The Commission should publish those documents.

(9)

To protect the financial interests of the Union, effective control measures should be adopted to combat irregularities and fraud. These control measures should involve systematic administrative checking of all aid applications supplemented by on-the-spot checks. The scope, content, timing and reporting of those control measures should be specified so as to ensure an equitable and uniform approach between Member States, taking account of their different implementation of the school scheme.

(10)

Amounts unduly paid should be recovered in accordance with Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 809/2014 (10).

(11)

In accordance with Article 23(10) of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013, the public should be made sufficiently aware of the Union's financial contribution to the school scheme. Further to the provision on the poster provided for in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/40, it is appropriate to lay down rules on publicising the school scheme and on the use of the Union emblem.

(12)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for the Common Organisation of the Agricultural Markets,

2.   Transfers between definitive allocations, according to Article 23a(4)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013, where no transfers between indicative allocations have been made, may be made in the request for Union aid referred to in Article 3 of this Regulation.

Member States shall notify to the Commission the amount of any such transfers by the 31 January of the school year in which they are made.

Article 7

Reallocation of Union aid

1.   On the basis of the amounts of Union aid requested pursuant to Article 3 of this Regulation, the Commission shall reallocate unrequested indicative allocations or unrequested parts thereof in accordance with Article 5(5) of Regulation (EU) No 1370/2013.

No additional amount shall be granted to a Member State for the group of products from which the Member State concerned has made a transfer to the other product group according to Article 6(1).

If a Member State does not submit a request pursuant to Article 3, the indicative allocations of this Member State shall be regarded as unrequested.

2.   The Commission may redistribute any unrequested definitive allocations or unrequested parts thereof for the ongoing school year as notified in accordance with Article 3(b) among those Member States who have notified their willingness to use more than their definitive allocations.

No additional amount shall be granted to a Member State for the group of products from which the Member State concerned has made a transfer to the other product group according to Article 6(2).

This redistribution shall be made within the allocation for school fruit and vegetables or for school milk, based on the indicative allocations of the requesting Member States. If applicable, amounts not requested by Member States within the same allocation may be distributed to Member States who requested additional amounts for the other allocation.

3.   The amount of definitive allocation that may be reallocated to another Member State pursuant to paragraph 1 shall be based on the level of use of the definitive allocation of Union aid in the previous school year for school fruit and vegetables and for school milk respectively by that Member State. Taking into account the declarations of expenditure sent to the Commission by 31 December prior to the aid application in accordance with Article 10 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 908/2014 (11), the amount of the definitive allocation shall be calculated as follows:

(a)

when the use of the definitive allocation is below or equal to 50 %, no additional allocation shall be granted;

(b)

when the use of the definitive allocation is higher than 50 % but lower or equal to 75 %, the maximum additional allocation shall be capped at 50 % of the indicative allocation;

(c)

when the use of the definitive allocation is higher than 75 %, the maximum additional allocation shall not be capped.

The calculation described in the first subparagraph shall not apply for the calculation of the definitive allocations for the 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 school years, as well as for Member States newly applying the school scheme or one of its components during the first 2 years of implementation.

Article 8

Monitoring and evaluation

1.   Monitoring as referred to in Article 9 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/40 shall draw upon the data originating from management and control obligations, including those set out in Articles 4 and 5 of this Regulation.

Member States shall notify the Commission of the results of the monitoring exercise by 31 January following the end of the school year concerned.

2.   For each 6-year period covered by the strategy drawn up according to Article 23(8) of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013, Member States shall submit to the Commission an evaluation report containing the results of the evaluation provided for in Article 9 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/40 of the implementation period covering the first 5 school years by 1 March in the year following the end of that period.

The first evaluation report shall be submitted on or before 1 March 2023.

3.   The Commission shall publish the results of the Member States' annual monitoring exercise and the evaluation reports.

Article 9

Administrative checks

1.   Member States shall take all necessary measures to comply with this Regulation. Those measures shall include systematic administrative checking of all aid applications under the school scheme.

2.   Member States shall define the supporting documents relating to the supply and distribution of products which must be submitted with the aid application in accordance with Article 5. Member States shall conduct checks on all aid applications, including a representative sample of the supporting documents submitted with the aid application.

3.   Administrative checks conducted with respect to aid applied for relating to monitoring, evaluation, publicity and accompanying educational measures shall include verifying the delivery of the material and services and the veracity of the claimed expenditure.

4.   In case of aid applied for relating to the supply and distribution of products and accompanying educational measures, the administrative checks shall be supplemented by on-the-spot checks in accordance with Article 10.

Article 10

On-the-spot checks

1.   In case of aid relating to the supply and distribution of products, on-the-spot checks shall in particular include verification of:

(a)

(b)

the use of the products in accordance with this Regulation.

2.   On-the-spot checks shall be carried out during the school year period running from 1 August to 31 July to which they relate (period N) and/or during the following 8 months (period N+1).

On-the-spot checks may take place during the implementation of the accompanying educational measures.

Each on-the-spot check shall be considered completed once the corresponding control report, as referred to in paragraph 6, is issued.

3.   The total number of on-the-spot checks shall cover at least 5 % of the aid claimed at national level and at least 5 % of all aid applicants dealing with the supply and distribution of products and with accompanying educational measures in respect of each school year.

When the number of aid applicants in a Member State is less than 100, on-the-spot checks shall be carried out on the premises of not less than five applicants.

When the number of aid applicants in a Member State is less than five, on-the-spot checks shall be carried out on the premises of all the applicants.

Where the applicant, not being an educational establishment, applies for aid relating to the supply and distribution of products, the on-the-spot check carried out on the premises of that applicant shall be supplemented by on-the-spot checks on the premises of at least two educational establishments or at least 1 % of the educational establishments recorded by the applicant in accordance with Article 6 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/40, whichever is the greater.

Where the applicant applies for aid relating to accompanying educational measures, on-the-spot checks on the premises of the applicant may be replaced, based on a risk analysis, by on-the-spot checks at the places where accompanying measures are carried out. Based on a risk analysis, Member States shall fix the level of such on-the-spot checks.

4.   On the basis of a risk analysis, the competent authority shall select those applicants to be subjected to on-the-spot checks.

(c)

the amount of aid involved;

(d)

the type of applicants;

(e)

the type of accompanying educational measure, if any.

5.   Provided that the purpose of the checks is not jeopardised, advance notice, strictly limited to the minimum time period necessary, may be given.

6.   The competent control authority shall draw up a control report on each on-the-spot check. The report shall describe precisely the different items controlled.

The control report shall be divided into the following parts:

(a)

a general part containing, in particular, the following information:

(i)

the period covered, the aid application(s) checked, the quantities of products for which the aid was applied for in case of applications relating to the supply and distribution of products, the participating educational establishments, an estimate based on the available data of the number of children for which aid was paid and the financial amount involved;

All control reports shall be completed no later than 8 months after the end of the school year.

7.   Member States shall notify the Commission of the on-the-spot checks carried out and the related findings by 31 October of the calendar year subsequent to the concerned school year.

Article 11

Recovery of undue payments

For recovery of unduly paid amounts, Article 7 of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 809/2014 shall apply mutatis mutandis.

Article 12

Publicity

1.   Where Member States decide not to make use of the poster referred to in Article 12 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/40, they shall clearly explain in their strategy how they will inform the public about the Union's financial contribution to the school scheme.

2.   Means of communication and publicity measures referred to in Article 12 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/40, as well as educational materials and tools to be used within the accompanying educational measures, shall exhibit the European flag and mention the ‘School scheme’ and unless the size of the materials and tools exclude this, the financial contribution of the Union.

3.   References to the financial contribution of the Union shall receive at least the same visibility as contributions from other private or public entities supporting a Member State's school scheme.

4.   Member States may continue to use existing stocks of posters and other publicity tools produced in accordance with Regulations (EU) 2016/248 and (EC) No 657/2008.

Article 13

Notifications

1.   The notifications from the Member States to the Commission shall be made by electronic means using the technical specifications for the transfer of data made available by the Commission.

2.   The form and content of those notifications shall be defined on the basis of models made available by the Commission to the Member States, after informing the Committee for the Common Organisation of the Agricultural Markets.
