Council Regulation (EEC) No 3687/91 of 28 November 1991 on the common organization of the market in fishery products

Official Journal L 354 , 23/12/1991 P. 0001 - 0038


COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 3687/91 of 28 November 1991 on the common organization of the market in fishery products

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Articles 42 and 43 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (2),

Whereas Council Regulation (EEC) No 3796/81 of 29 December 1981 on the common organization of the market in fishery products (3), as last amended by Regulation

(EEC) No 3571/90 (4), has been substantially amended on a number of occasions; whereas it is appropriate, for reasons of clarity and rationality, to consolidate the said Regulation;

Whereas the operation and development of the common market in agricultural products must be accompanied by the establishment of a common agricultural policy; whereas the latter must include in particular a common organization of agricultural markets, which may take various forms depending on the products concerned;

Whereas the fishing industry is of special importance to the agricultural economy of certain coastal regions of the Community; whereas that industry provides a major part of the income of fishermen in these regions; whereas it is therefore advisable to encourage market stability by appropriate measures;

Whereas one of the steps to be taken to implement the common organization of the market is the application of common marketing standards to the products concerned; whereas application of these standards should have the effect of keeping products of unsatisfactory quality off the market and facilitating trade relations based on fair competition, thus helping to improve the profitability of production;

Whereas the application of these standards calls for the inspection of the products subject to them; whereas provision should therefore be made for such inspection;

Whereas it is desirable to make provision under the rules regulating the market for measures which would make it possible to adjust supply to market requirements and to guarantee, as far as possible, a fair income to producers; whereas, given the special features of the market in fishery products, the formation of producers' organizations whose members would be bound by certain rules, notably in the matter of production and marketing, would contribute to the attainment of these objectives;

Whereas it is desirable to adopt provisions to facilitate the formation and operation of these organizations and the investment entailed in applying their common rules; whereas to this end Member States should be allowed to make aid available to them, this aid being partly financed by the Community; whereas, however, the amount of this aid should be limited; whereas, it should also be temporary and degressive, so that the financial responsibility of producers will gradually increase;

Whereas, to support the activity of these organizations, thus facilitating greater market stability, Member States should be permitted to extend, under certain conditions, to all non-members who market goods in a specific region the rules, in particular those on first-stage marketing, adopted by the organization in the region in question on behalf of its members;

Whereas application of the system described above involves costs to be borne by the organization whose rules have been extended; whereas, therefore, non-members should contribute towards these costs; whereas the Member States concerned should also be afforded the possibility of granting an indemnity to those operators in respect of products which, although they meet marketing standards, could not be marketed and which are withdrawn from the market;

Whereas, at all events, provisions should be laid down to ensure that the producers' organizations do not hold a dominant position in the Community;

Whereas in order to cope with market situations which, in the case of certain fishery products of special importance to producers' incomes, are likely to lead to prices which might cause disturbances on the Community market, a guide price which is representative of production areas in the Community and which will be used to determine price levels for intervention on the market must be fixed for each of these products;

Whereas, in order to stabilize prices, producers' organizations should be able to intervene in the market, notably by applying a withdrawal price below which the products of their members shall be withdrawn from the market;

Whereas it is appropriate in specific cases and under certain conditions to support the activities of producers' organizations by providing financial compensation for quantities withdrawn from the market;

Whereas experience has shown that, in certain cases, the financial compensation paid to the said organizations is not such as to encourage fishermen to join them; whereas the financial compensation should therefore be increased;

Whereas experience has shown that some flexibility should be introduced into the application of intervention mechanisms by the fixing of Community withdrawal prices, to enable the organizations to withdraw products from the market, within certain limits, in accordance with market fluctuations;

Whereas, to encourage fishermen to adjust their deliveries more accurately to market requirements, provision should be made for different levels of financial compensation depending on the volume of market withdrawals;

Whereas in view, in particular, of the scarcity of certain species, the destruction of fish of a high commercial value which have been withdrawn from the market should be avoided where possible; whereas, to this end, aid should be granted for the processing and storage, for their processing for human consumption, of certain quantities of fresh products withdrawn from the market;

Whereas, in order to foster greater market stability, due account being taken of the characteristics of the products concerned and of the diversity of the circumstances pertaining to their production and marketing, certain species should be covered by a Community price support scheme;

Whereas, however, regional price disparities for these species do not permit their being covered at present by the existing scheme for the grant of financial compensation to producers' organizations;

Whereas, therefore an intervention scheme should be introduced that is based on a withdrawal price set by producers' organizations themselves; whereas provision should therefore be made for such organizations to receive flat-rate aid on certain terms for products that have been the subject of such independent intervention;

Whereas, in order to encourage producers' organizations to adjust their supply to market requirements more effectively, provision should be made for suitable financial coresponsibility on their part and a limit should be set on the quantities for which aid can be given;

Whereas, in order where possible to prevent the destruction of fish withdrawn from the market, it should be possible for flat-rate aid to be granted for the processing and storage for subsequent human consumption of certain quantities withdrawn;

Whereas, as regards three tuna species, namely albacore, bluefin and bigeye, the marketing characteristics are similar to those of the other species qualifying for the flat-rate aid and provision should be made to include these species as well under this scheme;

Whereas the aid should be made conditional on the observance of common marketing standards;

Whereas the trend of market prices may make it necessary for action to be taken to help harmonize prices in the Community; whereas it should therefore be possible for the grant of flat-rate aid to be made conditional on autonomous withdrawal prices not exceeding a maximum level;

Whereas, where application of the flat-rate aid scheme brings about greater harmonization of prices as a result of changes in the production and marketing of the species concerned, the species in question should be brought within the scope of the financial compensation scheme;

Whereas, where prices for certain frozen products show a significant tendency to decline, provision should be made to permit the grant of private storage aid to producers', organizations for such products originating in the Community;

Whereas experience has shown that the conditions for the grant of flat-rate aid need to be specified in the case of certain products frozen on board and that at the same time the scheme in question needs to be made to comply with the general principles of the other Community intervention schemes;

Whereas a fall in import prices for tuna for the canning industry might threaten the income level of Community producers of this product; whereas provision should therefore be made for compensation to be granted to these producers when necessary;

Whereas, in the case of tuna, in order to rationalize the marketing of a uniform product, the compensatory allowance should be reserved to producers' organizations satisfying certain conditions;

Whereas, in order to assess whether a situation exists on the Community market linked to the trend of prices on the world market in tuna that warrants payment of the compensatory allowance, a check must be made that the drop in Community marke prices stems from a drop in import prices;

Whereas, in order to discourage an abnormal increase in tuna production, provision should be made for limits to be laid down within which the allowance may be granted to producers' organizations on the basis of supply conditions recorded on the Community market;

Whereas, in order not to disturb traditional trading parterns, provision should be made for producers' organizations to help finance intervention on the Community market in cases where their production of tuna landed on this market increases;

Whereas, in the interests of safeguarding the income level of producers of salmon and lobsters, provision should be made for granting compensation to these producers under certain conditions;

Whereas, however, it is in the Community interest that application of Common Customs Tariff duties should be totally suspended for certain products; whereas, since Community production of tuna is inadequate, conditions of supply comparable to those ruling in exporting third countries should be maintained for food-processing industries using these products so as not to hinder their development in the context of international conditions of competition; whereas any disadvantages which this system might present for Community tuna producers could be offset by payment of the indemnities envisaged for this purpose;

Whereas the tariff nomenclature resulting from the application of this Regulation is included in the Common Customs Tariff; whereas this Regulation should include the amendments to the Common Customs Tariff;

Whereas experience has shown that it may prove necessary to take tariff measures very rapidly, in order to ensure the supply of the Community market and to ensure that the Community's international undertakings are complied with; whereas, in order to allow the Community to deal with such situations with all the assiduity called for, provision should be made for a procedure enabling the requisite measures to be taken rapidly;

Whereas, for certain products, measures should be taken with regard to imports coming from third countries at abnormally low prices, so as to avoid disturbances on Community markets; whereas, in order to ensure the greater efficiency of these measures, it is appropriate, on the one hand, to improve the system whereby import prices are established, and, on the other hand, to extend the list of those products which may be made subject to the reference price system;

Whereas, for the majority of the products, the system thus introduced allows for renunciation of all quantitative restrictive measures at the external frontier of the Community and for applying only the customs duty of the Common Customs Tariff actually levied;

Whereas it is not yet possible to establish Community import arrangements for certain products; whereas it is necessary in these circumstances to allow Member States to maintain for those products the quantitative restrictions which result from their national arrangements;

Whereas the safeguard mechanism may, in exceptional circumstances, be impaired; whereas, in order not to leave, should this happen, the Community market defenceless against any disturbances which might result therefrom, the Community should be allowed to take the necessary measures;

Whereas, in addition to the system described above, and to the extent necessary for its proper working, provision should be made for regulating recourse to the inward processing arrangements referred to in Regulation (EEC)

No 1999/85 (5) and, when the situation on the market so requires, prohibiting totally or in part the use of inward processing arrangements; whereas it is also desirable that refunds should be so fixed that Community raw materials used by processing industries in the Community with a view to export are not placed at a disadvantage by recourse to processing arrangements which would encourage these industries to give preference to raw materials imported from non-member countries;

Whereas it is necessary to prevent competition between Community undertakings being distorted on external markets; whereas equal conditions of competition must therefore be established by the introduction of a Community system which would provide for the optional granting of refunds on exports to third countries to the extent necessary to safeguard Community participation in international trade in the products concerned, particularly in respect of those which are in sufficient supply in the Community, where these exports are of economic importance;

Whereas the levying of any customs duty or charge having equivalent effect and the application of any quantitative restriction or measure having equivalent effect are prohibited in the internal trade of the Community by the provisions of the Treaty;

Whereas the establishment of a single market based on a common price system would be jeopardized by the granting of certain aids; whereas, therefore, the provisions of the Treaty whereby aids granted by Member States can be examined, and those which are incompatible with the common market prohibited, should be made to apply to the fishing industry;

Whereas the common organization of the market in fishery products must take appropriate account, at the same time, of the objectives set out in Articles 39 and 110 of the Treaty;

Whereas implementation of this common organization must also take account of the fact that it is in the Community's interest to preserve fishing grounds as much as possible; whereas the financing of measures relating to quantities exceeding those which might be allocated to the Member States should therefore not be permitted;

Whereas, in order to facilitate implementation of the proposed measures, there should be a procedure for establishing close cooperation between Member States and the Commission within a Management Committee;

Whereas the expenditure incurred by the Member States as a result of the obligations arising out of the application of this Regulation falls on the Community in accordance with the provisions of Articles 2 and 3 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 729/70 of 21 April 1970 on the financing of the common agricultural policy (6), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2048/88 (7),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

TITLE I Marketing standards

Article 2

1. Common marketing standards and the scope of such standards may be determined for the products listed in Article 1 or groups of these products; these standards may in particular cover classification by quality, size or weight, packing, presentation and labelling.

2. When marketing standards have been adopted, the products to which they apply may not be displayed for sale, offered for sale, sold or otherwise marketed unless they conform to these standards, subject to special rules which may be adopted for trade with third countries.

3. The marketing standards and general rules for their application, including the special rules referred to in paragraph 2, shall be adopted by the Council acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission.

Article 3

Decisions to adjust the common marketing standards to take account of changes in production and sales conditions shall be taken in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36.

Article 4

1. Products for which common marketing standards have been adopted shall be subject to inspection by Member States for conformity with these standards.

This inspection may take place at all marketing stages and during transport.

2. Member States shall take all appropriate measures to penalize infringements of Article 2.

3. Not later than one month after the entry into force of each marketing standard, Member States shall notify the other Member States and the Commission of the name and address of the bodies entrusted with the inspection of each product or group of products for which a standard has been adopted.

4. Detailed rules for the application of paragraph 1 shall be adopted as necessary in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36, account being taken in particular of the need to ensure coordination of the work of the inspection bodies and uniformity in the interpretation and application of common marketing standards.

TITLE II Producers' organizations

Article 5

1. For the purpose of this Regulation, 'producers' organization' means any recognized organization or association of such organizations, established on producers' own initiative for the purpose of taking such measures as will ensure that fishing is carried out along rational lines and that conditions for the sale of their products are improved.

These measures, which shall be designed in particular to promote implementation of catch plans, concentrations of supply and regularization of prices, shall require members:

- to dispose, through the organization, of their total output of the product or products in respect of which they are members; the organization may decide that this requirement can be waived if products are disposed of in accordance with common rules established in advance,

- to apply, with regard to production and marketing, rules which have been adopted by the organization with the particular aim of improving product quality and adapting the volume of supply to market requirements.

2. The producers' organizations must not hold a dominant position on the common market unless necessary in pursuance of the objectives in Article 39 of the Treaty.

3. The Council, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission, shall adopt general rules for the application of this Article.

Article 6

1. Member States may make aid available to producers' organizations established after 1 January 1982 to encourage their formation and to facilitate their operation.

2. This aid shall be granted during the three years immediately following recognition. For the first, second and third years the aid shall not exceed 3 %, 2 % and 1 % respectively of the value of production marketed under the auspices of the producers' organization. Nor shall it exceed 60 %, 40 % and 20 % of the organization's administrative expenses in the first, second and third years respectively.

Payment of the aid shall be made within five years of the date of recognition.

3. The value of production marketed shall be established on a standard basis for each year, namely:

- members' average marketed production during the three calendar years immediately preceding membership of the organization,

- average producer prices obtained by those members over the same period.

4. During the five years immediately following the creation of the intervention funds referred to in Article 9, Member States may make aid available to producers' organizations, either directly or through credit institutions, in the form of loans on special terms to cover part of the anticipated cost of market intervention within the meaning of Article 9.

5. The aid referred to in paragraph 2 shall be notified to the Commission in a report which Member States shall forward to it at the end of each financial year.

When the aid referred to in paragraph 4 is granted, the Commission shall be notified immediately.

6. The Council, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission, shall adopt general rules for the application of this Article.

Article 7

1. Where a producers' organization is considered to be representative of production and marketing on a part of the coast or in one or more landing places on such part of the coast, the Member State concerned may oblige producers who are not members of that organization and who market any of the products referred to in Article 1 (2) on that part of the coast or at one or more of those landing places to comply with:

(a) the marketing rules referred to in the second indent of the second subparagraph of Article 5 (1);

(b)

the rules adopted by the organization concerned on market withdrawal for the products listed in Annex I. A and D, provided that the withdrawal price is equal to the price set in accordance with Article 12.

However, the rules adopted by the organization on the withdrawal price for the fresh or chilled products referred to in Article 1 (2) (a) and (c), other than the products referred to in Annex I. A and D, may be extended to non-members of the organization established in the areas referred to in the first subparagraph.

It may be decided that the rules referred to above shall not apply to certain categories of sales.

2. The provisions of paragraph 1 may be applied by Member States only to parts of the coast on which production and marketing conditions are homogeneous.

3. Member States shall notify to the Commission the rules which they intend to make obligatory pursuant to paragraph 1.

The Commission may, within two months of their notification:

(a)

decide that the rules notified may not be made obligatory; or

(b)

declare void the extension of the rules decided on by the Member State, in particular where, pursuant to Article 2 of Regulation (EEC) No 26 (8), it finds that Article 85 (1) of the Treaty is applicable to the agreement, decision or practice whereby the standards in question are adopted or executed. In that case the Commission's decision with regard to the agreement, decision or practice shall apply only from the date of such finding.

4. Member States shall take all appropriate measures to:

- ensure that the rules referred to in paragraph 1 are complied with,

- penalize breaches of those rules.

They shall forthwith inform the Commission of such measures.

5. Where paragraph 1 is applied, the Member State concerned may decide that non-members are liable to the organization for all or part of the fees paid by member producers in so far as these fees are intended to cover administrative costs resulting from the application of the system referred to in paragraph 1.

6. Where paragraph 1 is applied, Member States shall effect, where necessary, through the agency of the producers' organizations, the withdrawal of products not satisfying the marketing rules or which could not be sold at a price at least equal to the withdrawal price.

7. The Council, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission, shall adopt general rules for the application of this Article.

8. A list of the areas referred to in paragraph 1 and the other detailed rules for the application of this Article shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36.

Article 8

1. Where Article 7 (1) is applied, the Member State may grant an indemnity to producers who are not members of an organization and who are established in the Community in respect of products which:

- cannot be marketed pursuant to Article 7 (1) (a), or

- have been withdrawn from the market pursuant to under Article 7 (1) (b).

This indemnity shall be granted without discrimination as to the nationality or place of establishment of the recipients and may not exceed 60 % of the amount arrived at by applying the withdrawal price fixed in accordance with Article 12 to the quantities withdrawn.

2. The expenditure resulting from the granting of the indemnity referred to in paragraph 1 shall be borne by the Member State concerned.

TITLE III Prices

Article 9

1. For the products listed in Article 1, producers' organizations may fix a withdrawal price below which they will not sell products supplied by their members.

In this event, for quantities withdrawn from the market, producers' organizations:

- shall grant an indemnity to members in respect of the products listed in Annex I. A and D and in Annex VI which conform to the standards adopted in accordance with Article 2,

- may grant an indemnity to members in respect of other products listed in Article 1 but not in Annex I. A and D nor in Annex VI.

For each product listed in Article 1, a maximum level for the withdrawal price may be fixed in accordance with paragraph 5.

2. The disposal of products thus withdrawn from the market must be determined by producers' organizations in such a way as not to interfere with normal marketing of the product in question.

3. To finance these withdrawal measures, producers' organizations shall create intervention funds fed by contributions assessed on quantities offered for sale or shall, alternatively, have recourse to an equalization system.

4. Producers' organizations shall supply the following information to the national authorities who shall communicate it to the Commission:

- a list of the products for which they intend to operate the system described in paragraph 1,

- the period during which withdrawal prices are applicable,

- the level of withdrawal prices proposed and applied.

5. Detailed rules for the application of this Article shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36.

Article 10

1. A guide price for each of the products listed in Annex I. A, D and E shall be fixed before the beginning of the fishing year.

These prices shall be valid for the whole Community and shall be fixed for each fishing year or for each of the periods into which that year is subdivided.

2. The guide price shall be based on:

- the average of prices recorded for a significant proportion of Community output and a product with given commercial characteristics on representative wholesale markets or in representative ports during the three fishing years immediately preceding the year for which the price is fixed,

- an assessment of production and demand prospects.

In fixing the price, account shall also be taken of the need to:

- stabilize market prices and avoid the formation of surpluses in the Community,

- help support producers' incomes,

- consider consumers' interests.

3. The Council, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission, shall determine the level of the guide prices referred to in paragraph 1.

Article 11

1. Throughout the period during which the guide price is applicable, Member States shall notify the Commission of the prices recorded on representative wholesale markets or in representative ports for products having the characteristics selected for fixing the guide price.

2. Markets and ports in Member States where a significant proportion of Community output of a given product is marketed shall be regarded as representative within the meaning of paragraph 1.

3. Member States shall notify the Commission every quarter of wholesale prices during the previous quarter for the products listed in Annex IV. B frozen on board and frozen on land.

4. Detailed rules for the application of this Article shall be adopted, and the list of representative markets and ports referred to in paragraph 2 approved, in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36.

Article 12

1. For each of the products appearing:

- in Annex I.A and D, a Community withdrawal price,

- in Annex I.E, a Community selling price

shall be fixed on the basis of the freshness, size or weight and the presentation of the product, hereinafter called 'product category', by applying to an amount equal at least to 70 %, and not exceeding 90 %, of the guide price, the conversion factor of the category of the product concerned. These conversion factors shall reflect the price relationship between the category of products under consideration and that adopted for fixing the guide price. The Community withdrawal price and the Community selling price must, however, in no case exceed 90 % of the guide price.

2. In order to ensure producers in landing zones which are very far away from the principal consumption centres of the Community access to markets under satisfactory conditions, the prices referred to in paragraph 1 may be weighted, for these zones, by adjustment conversions.

3. The procedures for applying this Article and, in particular, the ascertainment of the percentage of the guide price serving as an element in the calculation of the Community withdrawal prices or the Community selling prices and the determination of the landing zones referred to in paragraph 2, as well as the prices, shall be adopted according to the procedure provided for in Article 36.

Article 13

1. Member States shall grant financial compensation to producers' organizations which intervene pursuant to Article 9 in respect of the products listed in Annex I.A and D on condition that:

(a) the withdrawal price applied by these organizations is the Community withdrawal price fixed in accordance with Article 12, a margin of tolerance extending 10 % below and 10 % above this price being, however, permitted to take account in particular of seasonal fluctuations in market prices;

(b)

products withdrawn conform to the standards adopted in accordance with Article 2;

(c)

the indemnity granted to members in respect of quantities withdrawn from the market:

- does not exceed the amount resulting from the application to those quantities of the withdrawal prices fixed in accordance with Article 12, and

- is at least equal, for the various bands of quantities withdrawn, to the percentage of the withdrawal price referred to in paragraph 3, plus 2,5;

(d)

a withdrawal price no less than the price referred to in Article 12 is applied for each category of the product concerned. However, a producers' organization which, as one of the measures referred to in Article 5 (1), applies a ban on the sale of certain categories of products shall not be required to apply the Community withdrawal price for those categories of products.

2. Financial compensation shall be granted only where products withdrawn from the market are disposed of for purposes other than human consumption or in such a way as not to interfere with normal marketing of the products referred to in Article 12.

However, the compensation shall not be granted if the products withdrawn daily are below a minimum quantity or value to be fixed.

3. The financial compensation shall be equal to:

- 85 % of the withdrawal price for quantities withdrawn from the market by the producers' organizations concerned which do not exceed 5 %,

- 70 %of the withdrawal price for quantities withdrawn from the market by the producers' organizations concerned which exceed 5 % and do not exceed 10 %,

- 55 % of the withdrawal price for quantities withdrawn from the market by the producers' organizations concerned which exceed 10 % and do not exceed 15 %,

- 40 % of the withdrawal price for quantities withdrawn from the market by the producers' organizations concerned which exceed 15 % and do not exceed 20 %,

- 0 % of the withdrawal price for quantities withdrawn from the market by the producers' organizations concerned which exceed 20 %

of the annual quantities of the product concerned which are put up for sale in accordance with Article 5 (1). The quantities withdrawn from the market shall be taken into account for financial compensation in chronological order of their withdrawal.

4. Production by members of an organization withdrawn from the market by that organization or another organization pursuant to Article 7 shall be taken into consideration for the purpose of calculating the financial compensation to be granted to the organization to which the producers in question belong.

Eighty per cent of the volume of the quantities eligible for the premium referred to in Article 14 shall be used for calculating the financial compensation.

5. The financial compensation shall be reduced by the value, set at a standard amount, of the product intended for purposes other than human consumption or by the net proceeds from the disposal of products for human consumption in accordance with paragraph 2. The above value shall be set at the beginning of the fishing year. It shall, however, be adjusted if significant and lasting price changes take place on Community markets.

6. The Council, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission, shall adopt general rules for the application of this Article.

7. Detailed rules for the application of this Article shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36.

Article 14

1. Some of the products listed in Annex I.A and D withdrawn from the market at the withdrawal price referred to in Article 12, shall be eligible for a carry-over premium, provided that they:

- have been supplied by a member producer,

- meet certain quality, size and presentation requirements,

- are processed by one or more of the processing methods listed in paragraph 3,

- are stored for a period to be determined.

2. The premium shall be granted only for quantities not exceeding 15 % of the annual quantity of the product in question put up for sale in accordance with Article 5 (1).

The amount of the premium may not exceed the amount of the actual cost processing and storage nor exced 50 % of the Community withdrawal price for the fresh product.

3. The processing methods referred to in this Article are:

(a) - freezing,

- salting,

- drying;

(b)

filleting or cutting-up where these are accompanied by one of the processing methods listed in (a).

4. The Council, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission, shall adopt general rules for the application of this Article and the list of the products eligible for a carry-over premium.

5. Detailed rules for the application of this Article shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36.

Article 15

1. Member States shall grant a storage premium to producers' organizations who do not sell, during the whole of the fishing year, the products appearing in E of Annex I below the Community selling price laid down in accordance with Article 12, with a tolerance margin of 10 % either above or below this price being admitted, however, to take account in particular of the seasonal fluctuations of the market prices.

2. Only the following may be considered to be quantities which may be the subject of a storage premium, i.e. those which:

- were brought on to the market by a member producer,

- meet certain requirements as regards quality and presentation,

- have been the subject of a sale, in the course of which it was established that no purchaser was available for the Community selling price,

- are either processed with a view to their freezing and stored or preserved in conditions to be determined.

are both lower than a triggering threshold of 93 % of the Community producer price for the product in question.

2. The allowance shall be granted to producers' organizations for quantities of the product in question caught by their members and sold and delivered during the quarter in question to canning industries located within the customs territory of the Community, subject to the conditions and limits laid down in this Article.

3. The allowance may not exceed:

- the difference between the triggering threshold and the average selling price of the product in question recorded on the Community market, or

4. In the quarter in respect of which the allowance is granted, the total quantities that may be eligible for the allowance shall in no case exceed:

- 62,8 % of the quantities of tuna used by the Community canning industry during that quarter,

- the average quantities sold and delivered in accordance with Article 2 during the equivalent quarter of the three fishing years preceding the one in respect of which the allowance is paid,

- 110 % of the average quantities sold and delivered in accordance with paragraph 2 during the equivalent quarter of the fishing years 1984 to 1986.

5. In the light of the trends in Community production and the supply situation in the Community canning industry, the Council, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission, shall, before 1 January 1993, determine any necessary amendments to be made to the percentages and the reference period referred to in paragraph 4.

6. Within the limits laid down in paragraph 4, the amount of the allowance granted to each producers' organization shall be equal to:

- the amount laid down in paragraph 3 for quantities of the product in question which have been disposed of in accordance with paragraph 2 and which do not exceed the average quantities sold and delivered under the same conditions by its members in the equivalent quarter in the reference fishing years 1984 to 1986,

- 95 % of the amount laid down in paragraph 3 for quantities of the product in question which exceed the average quantities referred to in the previous indent, up to a limit of 110 % of those quantities,

- 90 % of the amount laid down in paragraph 3 for quantities of the product in question which exceed those laid down in the previous indent and which are equal to the surplus of the quantities resulting from the allocation amoung producers' organizations of the quantities eligible for an allowance under paragraph 4.

The allocation shall be made between the producers' organizations concerned proportionately on the basis of their respective production during the equivalent quarter in the fishing year 1984 to 1986.

7. Producers' organizations shall allocate the allowance granted to their members proportionately on the basis of the quantities produced by them and sold and delivered in accordance with paragraph 2.

2. The general rules for interpretation of the Common Customs Tariff and the particular rules for its application shall be applicable to the classification of products covered by this Regulation; the tariff nomenclature resulting from the application of this Regulation shall be adopted in the Common Customs Tariff.

3. Save as otherwise provided in this Regulation, or where derogation therefrom is decided by the Council, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission, the following shall be prohibited:

- the levying of any charge having an effect equivalent to a customs duty,

- the application of any quantitative restriction.

4. Until such time as Community arrangements for imports of the products specified in Annex IV.C are implemented, Member States may retain in respect of these products the quantitative restrictions in relation to third countries applicable when this Regulation enters into force.

Article 23

1. The Commission Customs Tariff duties applicable to the products listed in Annex III shall be totally suspended.

2. In an emergency caused by:

- supply difficulties on the Community market, or

- the fulfilment of international commitments,

it may be decided wholly or partly to suspend the Common Customs Tariff duties in respect of the products list in Article 1 in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36.

3. The Commission shall inform the European Parliament and the Council of any decision taken pursuant to paragraph 2.

Article 24

1. Reference prices valid for the Community shall be fixed each year, by product category, for the products specified in Annexes I, II, III, IV.B and V to obviate disturbances caused by supplies from third countries at abnormal prices or under such conditions as would jeopardize the stabilization measures referred to in Article 12, 13, 14, 15, 18 or 19.

2. The reference price for the products specified in Annex I.A and D shall be equal to the withdrawal price fixed in accordance with Article 12 (1). The reference price for the products specified in Annex I.C shall be fixed on the basis of the reference price for the products specified in Annex I.A, taking account of the processing costs and of the need to ensure a relationship of prices in keeping with the market situation.

For the products appearing in Annex I.E, the reference price shall be equal to the Community selling price fixed in accordance with Article 12 (1).

The reference price for the products specified in Annexes I.B, IV.B and V shall be determined on the basis of the average reference price for the fresh product, taking account of the processing coasts and of the need to ensure a relationship of prices in keeping with the market situation. Where there is no reference price for a fresh product, this price shall be determined on the basis of the reference price applied to a commercially similar fresh product.

The reference price for the products specified in Annex II shall be derived from the guide price referred to in Article 17 (1) by reference to the price level specified in Article 18 (1) at which the intervention measures provided for therein may be taken and fixed taking account of the situation of the market in these products.

The reference price for the tuna specified in Annex III intended for use by the canning industry shall be based on the weighted average of the free-at-frontier prices recorded on the most representative import markets or in the most representative ports of import in the Member States during the three years immediately preceding the date on which the reference price is fixed, reduced by an amount equal to any customs duties and charges levied on the products and by the cost of unloading and transport from Community frontier crossing points to those markets or ports.

The conversion factors fixed in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 19 (6) shall be applied to the various types of tuna and to the various forms of presentation.

3. For the products specified in Annex I.A, D and E a free- at-frontier price shall be established, based on the prices recorded by the Member States for the various product categories at a specific marketing stage for the imported product on representative markets or in representative ports of import, reduced by an amount equal to the customs duty in the Common Customs Tariff actually levied and any charges levied on these products and by the cost of unloading and transport from Community frontier crossing points to those markets or ports.

For the products specified in Annexes I.B and C, II, III, IV.B and V, a free-at-frontier price shall be established, based on the price recorded by each Member State for the usual commercial quantities which are imported into the Community, reduced by an amount equal to the customs duty in the Common Customs Tariff actually levied and any charges levied on the products any by the cost of unloading and transport.

Member States shall notify the Commission regularly of:

- the prices of the products referred to in the first subparagraph recorded on representative markets or at representative ports,

- the prices of the products referred to in the second subparagraph.

4. When the free-at-frontier price for a given product imported from a third country remains lower than the reference price for at least three successive market days and if significant quantities of such products are being imported:

(a) autonomous suspension of the Common Customs Tariff duties may be abolished in the case of imports for which the free-at-frontier price is lower than the reference price;

(b)

in the case of the products specified in Annex I.A (with the exception of product No 3), Annex I.C, D, E Annex II, Annex IV.B and Annex V, imports may be subjected to the requirements that the free-at-frontier price determined in accordance with paragraph 3 is at least equal to the reference price;

(c) in the case of the products specified in Annex I.A.3 and B and Annex III, imports may be subjected to a countervailing charge, provided that this complies with the GATT rules on binding. However, where imports at entry prices lower than the reference price are from certain countries only or of certain species only, the countervailing charge shall be levied only on imports from those countries or of those species.

The countervailing charge shall be equal to the difference between the reference price and the free-at-frontier price. This charge, which shall be the same for all Member States, shall be added to the customs duties in force.

5. However, the measures referred to in paragraph 4 (c) shall not apply to third countries which undertake, on specific terms, that their products will be offered at prices to be determined in accordance with paragraph 3 which are at least equal to the reference price, and which do in practice observe this price in their deliveries to the Community.

6. Detailed rules for the application of this Article, in particular the level of the reference price, shall be adopted to the procedure laid down in Article 36. The application and repeal of the measures provided for in paragraph 4 shall be decided on according to the same procedure.

However, in the intervals between the periodic meetings of the Management Committee, these measure shall be adopted by the Commission. In this event, they shall remain valid until any measures adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in

Article 36

enter into force.

Article 25

1. In order to obviate disturbances caused by supplies from third countries at abnormally low prices, references prices for the products referred to in Annex IV.A.1 may be fixed before the beginning of each marketing year. These prices may be fixed at different levels during periods to be determined within each marketing year according to seasonal fluctuations in prices.

2. The reference prices referred to in paragraph 1 shall be fixed on the basis of the average of the producer prices recorded during the three years preceding the date on which the reference price is fixed for a product with given commercial characteristics in the representative production areas of the Community.

3. If the free-at-frontier price valid for a consignment of a normal commercial quantity of the products referred to in paragraph 1 of specified provenance is lower than the reference price, imports of those products from the third country in question may be made subject, in compliance with the GATT rules on binding, to a countervailing charge equal to the difference between the reference price and the free-at-frontier price plus the Common Customs Tariff duty actually levied. The Commission shall follow regularly the trend in free-at-frontier prices of products imported from each provenance.

4. The countervailing charge provided for in paragraph 3 shall not, however, be levied in the case of third countries which are willing and able to guarantee that, when the products referred to in paragraph 1 originating in and coming from their territory are imported into the Community, the price plus the Common Customs Tariff duty actually levied will not be less than the reference price and that deflections of trade will be avoided.

5. Detailed rules for the application of this Article, in particular the level of the reference prices, shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36. Decisions to introduce, alter or withdraw the countervailing charge, or to admit a particular third country to the benefit of paragraph 4, shall be taken in accordance with the same procedure.

Article 26

1. To the extent necessary for the proper working of the commong organization of the market in fishery products, the Council, acting by qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission may in certain cases prohibit, in whole or in part, the use of inward processing arrangements in respect of the products specified in Article 1 (2) (a), (b) and (c) where these are intended for the manufacture of the products specified in Article 1 (2), (b), (c), (e) and (f).

2. The quantity of raw material which, under inward processing arrangements, is not subject to customs duty or a charge having equivalent effect must corresponded to the conditions under which the processing operation in question is actually to be effected.

Article 27

1. If, by reason of imports or exports, the Community market in one or more of the products specified in Article 1 (2) experiences or is threatened with serious disturbances which may endanger the objectives of Article 39 of the Treaty, appropriate measures may be applied in trade with third countries until such disturbance or threat of disturbance has ceased.

The Council, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission shall adopt detailed rules for the application of this paragraph and define the cases in which and the limits within which Member States may take interim protective measures.

2. If the situation mentioned in paragraph 1 arises, the Commission shall, at the request of a Member state or on its own initiative, adopt the necessary measures; the measures shall be communicated to the Member State and shall be immediately applicable. If the Commission recieves a request from a Member State, it shall take a decision thereon within 24 hours of receipt of the request.

3. The measures adopted by the Commission may be referred to the Council by any Member State within three working days of the day on which they were communicated. The Council shall meet without delay. It may, acting by a qualified majority, amend or repeal the measures in question.

Article 28

1. To the extent necessary to enable economically important exports of the products specified in Article 1 (2) to be effected on the basis of prices for those products on the world market, the difference between those prices and prices within the Community may be covered by an export refund. These provisions shall apply particularly to products which are in adequate supply in the Community and where the granting of a refund will permit adjustment to special marketing conditions on the world market.

2. The refund shall be the same for the whole Community. It may be varied according to destination.

The refund shall be granted on application by the party concerned.

When the refund is being fixed, particular account shall be taken of the need to establish a balance between the use of Community basic products in the manufacture of processed goods for export to third countries and use of products from such countries brought in under inward processing arrangements.

Refunds shall be fixed at regular intervals in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36.

Where necessary the Commission may, at the request of a Member State or on its own initiative, alter the refunds in the intervening period.

3. The amount of the refund applicable to the export of products listed in Article 1 (2) shall be that applicable on the day of exportation.

4. The Council, acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission shall adopt general rules for granting export refunds and criteria for fixing the amount of such refunds.

5. Detailed rules for the application of this Article shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 36.
