COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 578/2010

of 29 June 2010

on the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 1216/2009 as regards the system of granting export refunds for certain agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, and the criteria for fixing the amount of such refunds



THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1216/2009 of 30 November 2009 laying down the trade arrangements applicable to certain goods resulting from the processing of agricultural products ( 1 ), and in particular the first subparagraph of Article 8(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005 of 30 June 2005 implementing Council Regulation (EC) No 3448/93 as regards the system of granting export refunds on certain agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, and the criteria for fixing the amount of such refunds ( 2 ) has been substantially amended several times. Since further amendments are necessary, it should be replaced.

(2)

Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 of 22 October 2007 establishing a common organisation of agricultural markets and on specific provisions for certain agricultural products (Single CMO Regulation) ( 3 ) provides that, to the extent required to allow certain agricultural products to be exported in the form of certain processed goods not listed in Annex I to the Treaty on the basis of world market quotations or prices for such products, the difference between such quotations or prices and prices in the Union may be covered by an export refund. The granting of refunds for all those agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty should therefore be subject to common rules.

(3)

In order to ensure uniform application of Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 relating to the granting of export refunds, such refunds should not be granted for goods from third countries used in the manufacture of goods which are exported after having been in free circulation in the Union.

(4)

Export refunds should be paid for goods which are obtained directly from basic products, from products obtained from the processing of basic products and from products assimilated to either of these categories. The method for determining the amount of the export refund in each of those cases should be established.

(5)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 612/2009 of 7 July 2009 on laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of export refunds on agricultural products ( 4 ) and Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2220/85 of 22 July 1985 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of securities for agricultural products ( 5 ) apply in general to goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty. It is therefore necessary to specify the manner in which certain provisions of those Regulations apply.

(6)

In accordance with Commission Regulation (EC) No 1670/2006 of 10 November 2006 laying down certain detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 as regards the fixing and granting of adjusted refunds in respect of cereals exported in the form of certain spirit drinks ( 6 ), the rate of the export refund is to be that applicable on the day on which the cereals are placed under customs control for the manufacture of spirit drinks. The placing of cereals under customs control for the production of the spirit drinks referred to in Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1670/2006 should therefore be deemed to be equivalent to export for the purpose of granting export refunds.

(7)

Spirit drinks are considered less sensitive to the price of the agricultural products used in their manufacture than other goods. However, Protocol 19 of the Act of Accession of the United Kingdom, Ireland and Denmark provides that the necessary measures must be decided to facilitate the use of Union cereals in the manufacture of spirit drinks obtained from cereals.

(8)

Many goods manufactured by an undertaking under clearly defined technical conditions and having constant characteristics and quality follow a regular export pattern. To ease export formalities, a simplified procedure should be adopted for such goods whereby the manufacturer communicates to the competent authorities such information as the latter consider necessary concerning the conditions of manufacture of the goods. Where the quantities of agricultural products actually used in the manufacture of the exported goods are registered with the competent authorities, provision should be included for annual confirmation of such registration in order to reduce the risks associated with failure to communicate changes in those quantities.

(9)

Many agricultural products are subject to natural and seasonal variability. The agricultural product content of exported goods may consequently vary. The amount of the refund should therefore be determined on the basis of the quantities of agricultural products actually used in the manufacture of the exported goods. However, for certain goods of a simple and relatively constant composition, the amount of the refund should, for ease of administration, be determined on the basis of fixed quantities of agricultural products.

(10)

In order to qualify for a refund, the agricultural products used and in particular the goods manufactured from such products must be exported. Any exception to that rule should be interpreted restrictively. However, during the process of manufacturing the goods, producers may incur losses of raw materials for which Union prices have nevertheless been paid while the losses incurred by producers established outside the Union are limited to world market prices. In addition, in the process of manufacturing, certain by-products are obtained which differ markedly in value from the principal products. In some instances, these by-products can be used only as animal feed. Therefore, it is necessary to lay down common rules for determining the concept of the quantity of products actually used in the process of manufacturing the exported goods.

(11)

For the purposes of the second subparagraph of Article 8(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1216/2009, it is necessary to provide that the refunds for basic products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I be fixed for the same period as that for refunds for agricultural products exported in the unprocessed state. However, it is also necessary to provide for a possibility to derogate from that rule in circumstances of market disturbance to be determined in accordance with the procedure referred to in Article 16(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1216/2009.

(12)

When fixing the rate of refund for basic products or assimilated products, account should be taken of aids or other measures having similar effect which are applicable in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007.

(13)

Potato starch should be assimilated to maize starch for the purposes of determining export refunds. However, it should be possible to fix a specific refund rate for potato starch in market situations where its price is significantly lower than that of maize starch.

(14)

In accordance with Article 162(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007, refunds granted for exports of agricultural products incorporated in goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty may not exceed the refunds that would be payable on those products when exported in the unprocessed state. That should be taken into account when rates of refund are fixed and assimilation rules are established.

(15)

Certain goods having similar characteristics may have been obtained by various techniques from different base materials. Exporters should be required to identify the nature of the base materials and to make certain declarations in respect of the manufacturing process where such information is necessary to determine entitlement to a refund or the appropriate refund rate to apply.

(16)

It is appropriate when calculating the quantities of agricultural products actually used to have regard to the dry matter content in the case of starches and certain glucose and maltodextrin syrups.

(17)

Where the world trade situation, the specific requirements of certain markets or international trade agreements so require, it should be possible to differentiate the refund for certain agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty according to destination.

(18)

In view of the management of the amounts of refunds which may be granted during a budget year on certain agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, different rates for exports should be permitted to be fixed with or without advance fixing of the rate of refund on the basis of developments in Union and world markets.

(19)

The amount of refunds that may be granted in any budget year is limited in accordance with the international commitments entered into by the Union. It should be made possible to export goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty under conditions which are known in advance. In particular, it should be possible that operators have an assurance that such exports are eligible for a refund compatible with the commitments of the Union. Where such an assurance can no longer be given, exporters should be informed sufficiently in advance. The issue of refund certificates makes it possible to follow up on refund applications and guarantee to their holders that they will be able to benefit from a refund up to the amount for which the certificate is issued, provided that they comply with the other conditions for refund laid down by Union rules.

(20)

Management measures should be laid down for the system of refund certificates. In particular, provision should be made for a reduction coefficient to be applied where applications for refund certificates exceed the available amounts. In certain circumstances, provision should be made for the issue of refund certificates to be suspended.

(21)

Refund certificates serve to ensure compliance with the international commitments entered into by the Union. They also make it possible to determine in advance the refund which can be granted for agricultural products used in the manufacture of goods exported to third countries. This purpose differs, in some respects, from the objectives of export licences issued for basic products exported in the unprocessed state which are subject to international commitments involving quantitative restrictions. It is therefore necessary to specify which general provisions applicable to agricultural licences and certificates, currently laid down by Commission Regulation (EC) No 376/2008 of 23 April 2008 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance fixing certificates for agricultural products ( 7 ) should not apply to refund certificates.

(22)

For the most part, refund rates are fixed or modified on Thursdays. It is necessary to reduce the risk of applications for advance fixing for products submitted for speculative reasons. Accordingly, where an application for advance fixing is submitted on a Thursday, the application should be deemed to have been submitted on the following working day.

(23)

In order to facilitate the operation of the system of export refunds by Member States, refund rates for the different basic products incorporated in goods not covered by Annex I should be simultaneously fixed in advance.

(24)

Applications received for certificates may be for amounts greater than can be granted. The budget year should therefore be divided into periods so that certificates can be made available both to operators who export at the end of the budget year and to those who export at the beginning of the budget year. Where appropriate, a reduction coefficient should be applied to all amounts requested during a particular period.

(25)

In cases where the total amount of refunds applied for in respect of a particular tranche is less than the amount available for that tranche, operators should be permitted to submit applications for refund certificates on a weekly basis in respect of any remaining amount available for that tranche.

(26)

It is necessary to specify how certain provisions of Regulation (EC) No 376/2008 relating to certificates, fixing the export refund in advance, applied for in connection with an invitation to tender issued in an importing third country, should apply to refund certificates.

(27)

Conditions should be laid down for the release of the security which is lodged in respect of refund certificates. Those conditions should include the obligations which are considered primary requirements, against which security is lodged, and the evidence which needs to be produced to demonstrate compliance with those obligations.

(28)

Most exporters receive less than EUR 100 000 a year in refunds. Taken together, those exports are of minor economic importance and account for only a small part of the total amount of refunds granted for agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty. In those cases, it should therefore be possible to exempt small exporters from the requirement to present a certificate. In the interest of simplification, they should, in certain circumstances, be entitled to use refund certificates without losing the status of small exporter. However, in order to prevent misuse, it is necessary to limit application of that exemption to the Member State in which the small exporter is established.

(29)

Monitoring arrangements should be established, based on the principle that the exporter should declare the quantities of products used to manufacture the exported goods to the competent authorities each time goods are exported. The competent authorities should take any measure they consider necessary to verify the accuracy of such declarations.

(30)

The authorities responsible for checking the exporter’s declaration may not possess sufficient evidence to enable them to accept the declaration of the quantities used, even if it is based on a chemical analysis. Such situations are particularly likely to arise when the goods to be exported have been manufactured in a Member State other than the exporting Member State. Therefore, the competent authorities of the exporting Member State should be able, if necessary, to obtain directly from the competent authorities of the other Member States all the information which the latter authorities are able to obtain concerning the conditions of manufacture of the goods.

(31)

In consultation with the competent authorities of the Member State in which the goods are manufactured, operators should be permitted to make a simplified declaration of the products used, in the form of aggregated quantities of those products, provided they keep a detailed record of the products used and make it available to those authorities.

(32)

It is not always possible for the exporter to know the precise quantities of agricultural products used in respect of which he can claim a refund, particularly if he is not the manufacturer. Therefore, the exporter is not always able to declare such quantities. It is therefore necessary to provide an alternative method for calculating the refund which the person concerned may ask to be applied, restricted to certain goods, based on the chemical analysis of those goods, and using a table created for that purpose.

(33)

In accordance with Article 28 of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009 no refund is to be granted on products that are not of sound and fair marketable quality on the day of acceptance of the export declaration. In order to ensure that this rule is uniformly applied, it should be clarified that for a refund to be granted on certain animal products covered by Regulation (EC) No 852/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 on the hygiene of foodstuffs ( 8 ) and by Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 laying down specific hygiene rules for food of animal origin ( 9 ) and that are included in Annex II to this Regulation, the animal products concerned should be prepared in accordance with the requirements of those Regulations and display the required health mark.

(34)

It is essential to enable the Commission to monitor any measures adopted concerning export refunds granted. Therefore, the competent authorities of Member States should transmit certain statistical information to the Commission. The format and scope of that information should be specified.

(35)

In accordance with Article 12(1) and (4) of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009, ingredients other than sugar products referred to in point (iii) of Article 162(1)(a) and point (b) of Article 162(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 for which an export refund is granted must be of Union origin. The measures needed to ensure compliance with this requirement should therefore be laid down.

(36)

The volume of applications in respect of which refunds are granted in accordance with this Regulation is high. Most goods for which those applications are submitted are manufactured under clearly defined technical conditions, have constant characteristics and quality, follow regular export patterns and have manufacturing formulas which have been registered and confirmed by the competent authorities. In the light of these special circumstances and with a view to simplifying the administrative work involved in granting export refunds under this Regulation, it is appropriate to give Member States greater flexibility in applying Article 24 of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009 in so far as it relates to the thresholds below which Member States may exempt operators from furnishing the proof required other than the transport document.

(37)

It is appropriate to ensure the uniform application throughout the Union of the provisions on the granting of refunds for goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty. To that end, each Member State should inform the Commission of the monitoring arrangements applied in its territory to the various types of exported goods.

(38)

Sufficient time should be allowed for the transition from the administrative arrangements for refund certificates under Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005 to the administrative arrangements provided for in this Regulation. This Regulation should therefore apply to applications for certificates submitted as of the first date of the first period of submission of budget period 2011 and enter into force on that date.

(39)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee on horizontal questions concerning trade in processed agricultural products not listed in Annex I to the Treaty,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

CHAPTER II

EXPORT REFUNDS



SECTION 1

Method of calculation

Article 5

1.  The amount of the refund granted for the quantity, determined in accordance with Section 2, of each of the basic products exported in the form of the same type of goods shall be obtained by multiplying that quantity by the rate of the refund for the basic product calculated per unit of weight in accordance with Section 3.

2.  Where, pursuant to Article 15(2), different refund rates are fixed for a particular basic product, a separate amount shall be calculated for each of the quantities of the basic product for which there is a different refund rate.

3.  Where goods are used in the manufacture of the goods exported, the refund rate to be used in calculating the amount applying to each of the basic products, to products derived from the processing thereof, or to products assimilated to one of those two categories in accordance with Article 3 which were used in the manufacture of the goods exported, shall be the rate applicable when the former goods are exported unprocessed.



SECTION 2

Reference quantity

Article 6

In respect of goods, the quantity of each of the basic products to serve as a basis for calculating the amount of the refund, hereinafter ‘the reference quantity’, shall be determined in accordance with Articles 7, 8 and 9, except where reference is made to Annex III or where Article 47(2) applies.

Article 7

In the case of use of a basic product, unprocessed, or of an assimilated product, the reference quantity shall be the quantity which is actually used in the manufacture of the exported goods, account being taken of the conversion rates set out in Annex VII.

Article 8

1.  In cases of use of a product covered by point (a) of Article 1(1) and Part I of Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 or by point (b) of Article 1(1) and Part II of Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007, the reference quantity shall be the quantity which is actually used in the manufacture of the exported goods, adjusted to correspond to a quantity of the basic product by applying the coefficients set out in Annex V to this Regulation where one of the following applies to the product concerned:

(a) the product results from the processing of a basic product or of a product assimilated to that basic product;

(b) the product is assimilated to a product resulting from the processing of a basic product;

(c) the product results from the processing of a product assimilated to a product resulting from the processing of a basic product.

2.  By way of derogation from paragraph 1, the reference quantity for grain spirit contained in spirituous beverages falling within CN code 2208, shall be 3,4 kg of barley per % vol. of alcohol derived from cereals per hectolitre of the spirituous beverage exported.

Article 9

1.  Subject to Article 11, in the case of use of either of the following products, the reference quantity for each of the basic products shall be equal to the quantity established by the competent authorities in accordance with Article 45:

(a) a product, not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, which is derived from the processing of a product referred to in Articles 7 or 8 of this Regulation;

(b) a product derived from the mixture or processing of several products referred to in Articles 7 or 8, or of products referred to in point (a) of this subparagraph.

The reference quantity shall be determined on the basis of the quantity of the product actually used in the manufacture of the goods exported.

For the purpose of calculating that quantity, the conversion rates referred to in Annex VII or, as the case may be, the special rules for calculation, equivalence ratios and coefficients referred to in Article 8 shall apply.

2.  By way of derogation from paragraph 1 the cereal-based spirituous beverages contained in spirituous beverages falling within CN code 2208, the reference quantity shall be 3,4 kg of barley per % vol. of alcohol derived from cereals per hectolitre of the spirituous beverage exported.

Article 10

1.  For the purposes of Articles 6 to 9, the products used unprocessed in the manufacture of exported goods shall be considered as actually used.

2.  Where, during one of the stages of manufacture of such goods, a basic product is itself processed into another more elaborate basic product and used at a later stage, only the latter basic product shall be considered as actually used.

3.  The quantities of products actually used, within the meaning of paragraph 1, shall be determined for each of the goods exported.

4.  By way of derogation from paragraphs 1, 2 and 3, in the case of regular exports of goods manufactured by a particular undertaking under clearly defined technical conditions and having constant characteristics and quality, those quantities may, upon agreement with the competent authorities, be determined either from the manufacturing formula for the goods or from the average quantities of product used over a specified period in the manufacture of a given quantity of these goods. The quantities of products thus determined shall remain the basis of calculation so long as there is no change in the conditions under which the goods are manufactured.

Except in the case of a formal authorisation given by the competent authority, the quantities of products thus determined shall be confirmed at least once a year.

Article 11

1.  In respect of the goods listed in Annex III, the reference quantity in kilograms of basic product per 100 kg of goods shall be that shown in that Annex against each of those goods.

However, in the case of fresh pasta, the quantities of basic products set out in Annex III shall be reduced to an equivalent quantity of dry pasta by multiplying those quantities by the percentage of the dry extract of the pasta and dividing them by 88.

2.  Where the goods listed in Annex III have been manufactured partly from products for which the payment of export refund is covered by Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 and partly from other products, the reference quantity in respect of those former products shall be determined in accordance with Articles 6 to 10.

Article 12

1.  For the purposes of determining the quantities of agricultural products actually used, paragraphs 2 and 3 shall apply.

2.  All agricultural products, used within the meaning of Article 10 and conferring a right to a refund, which disappear during the normal course of the manufacturing process in such forms as steam or smoke or by conversion into non-recoverable powder or ash, shall be eligible for that refund in respect of all of the quantities used.

3.  Any quantity of goods which is not actually exported shall not be eligible for refunds in respect of the quantities of agricultural products actually used.

If such goods have the same composition as those actually exported, a pro rata reduction in the quantities of agricultural products actually used in the manufacture of the latter may be applied.

Article 13

1.  By way of derogation from Article 12(3), losses of 2 % or less by weight inherent in the manufacture of the goods shall be eligible for refunds.

The threshold of 2 % shall be calculated as the proportion of the weight of the dry matter of all raw materials used, after deduction of the quantities referred to in Article 12(2), in relation to the weight of the dry matter of the goods actually exported, or using any other method of calculation appropriate to the conditions of manufacture of the goods.

2.  Where the losses inherent in manufacture of the goods exceed 2 %, the excess loss shall not be eligible for refunds in respect of the quantities of agricultural products actually used. The competent authorities of Member States may, however, accept properly justified higher losses. Member States shall communicate to the Commission the cases in which the competent authorities have accepted higher losses, as well as their reasons for such acceptance.

3.  The quantities of agricultural products actually used incorporated in residues shall be eligible for refunds.

4.  In cases where by-products are obtained, the quantities of agricultural products actually used shall be attributed respectively to the goods exported and to the by-products.

The competent authority may consider that the specific application is not the payment documents referred to in Article 46(2) of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009.

The competent authority may consider the specific application to be the export declaration within the meaning of Article 5(1) of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009. In that case, the date of receipt of the specific application by the authority responsible for payment referred to in paragraph 2 of this Article shall be the date on which that authority received the export declaration.

That data shall be indicated or referred to clearly in the export declaration.

The authority responsible for payment shall record that amount on the refund certificate within six months of the date of receipt of the specific application.

2.  Where the specific application is not the export declaration, it must be submitted within three months of the date of expiry of the refund certificate the number of which has been entered on the specific application, except in cases of force majeure.

If the time-limit of three months set out in the first subparagraph is not complied with, the primary requirement cannot be deemed to have been met.

3.  Evidence that the primary requirement has been fulfilled shall be provided by means of the presentation to the competent authority of Copy No 1 of the refund certificate, duly recorded in accordance with Article 28(2). That evidence shall be presented by the end of the twelfth month following the end of the period of validity of the refund certificate.

The first subparagraph shall apply mutatis mutandis to certificates registered as provided for in Article 24(2).

4.  By way of derogation from Article 22(3) of Regulation (EEC) No 2220/85, the security provided for in Article 23 of this Regulation shall be forfeited in proportion to the amount for which the required evidence was not provided within the time-limits set out in paragraphs 2 and 3 of this Article.

Article 40

1.  If a reduction coefficient is applied pursuant to Article 33(2) or point (a) of Article 34(3), part of the security, equal to the amount lodged multiplied by the reduction coefficient, shall be released immediately.

2.  If the applicant withdraws his application for a certificate, in accordance with the second subparagraph of Article 33(2), 80 % of the original security shall be released.

3.  The security shall be released in full once the holder of the certificate has applied for refunds totalling 95 % of the amount in respect of which the certificate was issued.

4.  On application by the titular holder, Member States may release the security by instalments in proportion to the amounts in respect of which the conditions referred to in Article 39(1) and (3) have been fulfilled, provided that evidence has been produced that an amount equal to at least 5 % of that indicated on the certificate has been applied for.

5.  Where applications have been made for refunds in respect of less than 95 % of the amount for which the certificate was issued, part of the security, equal to 10 % of the difference between 95 % of the amount for which the certificate was issued and the amount of refunds actually used, shall be forfeited.

6.  Where the amount in respect of which the conditions referred to in Article 39(1) and (3) have been fulfilled is less than 5 % of the amount indicated on the certificate, the whole of the security shall be forfeited.

7.  If the total amount of the security which would be forfeited comes to EUR 100 or less for a given certificate, the Member State concerned shall release the whole of the security.

Article 41

1.  Where the certificate or an extract of the certificate is returned to the issuing authority within a period corresponding to the initial two thirds of its term of validity, the corresponding amount of security to be forfeited shall be reduced by 40 %, for which purpose, any part of a day shall count as a whole day.

2.  Where the certificate or extract of the certificate is returned to the issuing authority within a period corresponding to the last third of its term of validity or during the month following the expiry date, the corresponding amount of security to be forfeited shall be reduced by 25 %.

3.  Paragraphs 1 and 2 shall apply only to certificates and extracts from certificates returned to the issuing authority during the budget period in respect of which the certificates have been issued, provided that they are returned no later than 31 August of that period.

2.  When goods have been used in the manufacture of goods to be exported, the declaration by the party concerned shall include the quantity of the goods actually used and the nature and quantity of each of the basic products, of products derived from the processing thereof and/or of products assimilated to one of those two categories in accordance with Article 3, from which the goods are derived.

The party concerned shall, in support of his declaration, supply the competent authorities with all documents and information which the latter consider relevant. The documents and information concerned may be held and submitted in electronic form.

The competent authorities shall verify the accuracy of the declaration by any appropriate means.

3.  At the request of the competent authorities of the Member State on whose territory the customs export formalities are carried out, the competent authorities of the other Member States shall directly communicate to them all information they are able to obtain to enable the declaration made by the party concerned to be verified.

Article 46

By way of derogation from Article 45, and in consultation with the competent authorities, the declaration of the products or goods used may be replaced by an aggregated declaration of the quantities of products used or by a reference to a declaration of those quantities, where the latter have already been determined pursuant to Article 10(4) and on condition that the manufacturer places all the information necessary to verify the declaration at the disposal of the authorities.

Article 47

1.  Where the exporter does not draw up the declaration referred to in Article 46 or does not provide satisfactory information in support of his declaration, he shall not be entitled to a refund.

2.  By way of derogation from paragraph 1, where the goods concerned are listed in columns 1 and 2 of Annex IV, the party concerned may be granted a refund, at his express request. The nature and quantity of the basic products taken into consideration for the calculation of such refund shall be determined from an analysis of the goods to be exported and in accordance with the table in Annex IV. The competent authority shall decide on the conditions under which the analysis is to be carried out and the information to be supplied in support of the request.

3.  The cost of such analysis shall be borne by the exporter.

Article 48

1.  Article 45 shall not apply to the quantities of agricultural products determined in accordance with Annex III, with the exception of the following:

5.  For the purposes of Articles 45 and 46, each Member State shall inform the Commission of the checks carried out in its territory on the various kinds of goods exported. The Commission shall inform the other Member States accordingly.

Article 49

1.  Pursuant to Articles 45 and 46 of this Regulation and in application of Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009, for goods containing cereals, rice, milk and milk products or eggs referred to in points (i), (ii), (v) and (vii) of Article 162(1)(a) and point (b) of Article 162(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007, the party concerned shall provide a declaration that none of the ingredients have been imported from third countries or a specification of the quantities of those products imported from third countries.

3.  Where a request is made for the quantities to be determined in accordance with Article 11(1) or in accordance with Article 47(2) the competent authority may accept a declaration by the party concerned that the cereal, rice, milk and egg products referred to in paragraph 1 which have been imported from third countries will not be used.

4.  The declarations referred to in paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 shall be subject to verification by the competent authorities by any appropriate means.



CHAPTER VI

PAYMENT OF THE REFUND

Article 50

1.  In the case of goods exported between 1 October and 15 October of each year, refunds shall not be paid before 16 October.

As regards goods exported with presentation of a refund certificate issued in respect of a budget period, and where the Commission considers that there is a danger that the Union may not meet its international commitments, refund payments scheduled after the end of that period shall not be made before 16 October. In that case, the time limit referred to in Article 46(8) of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009 may be temporarily extended to three months and 15 days by way of a regulation to be published before 20 September in the Official Journal of the European Union.

2.  For the goods listed in Annex II to this Regulation and by way of derogation from Article 24 of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009, the amount set out in Article 24(1)(a)(ii) of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009 shall apply regardless of the country or territory of destination to which the goods are exported:

(a) in the case of goods which are packaged for consumer retail sale in immediate packing of a net content not exceeding 2.5 kg or in containers not holding more than 2 litres, with labelling within the meaning of point (a) of Article 1(3) of Directive 2000/13/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council ( 16 ) which mentions either the importer in the country of destination or whose text is in an official language of the country of destination or in a language easily understood in that country;

(b) in cases where a particular exporter, at least 12 times in the two years preceding the date of request for an authorisation as referred to in paragraph 3, exports goods containing not more than 90 % by weight of any single basic product on which a refund is payable, which are of the same eight-digit CN code to the same consignee(s).

3.  In the cases provided for in paragraph 2, Member States may, on request, grant formal authorisation exempting the exporter concerned from producing the documents required under Article 17 of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009 other than the transport document.

The authorisation referred to in the first subparagraph shall be valid, unless revoked, for a maximum period of two years and shall be renewable. Member States may revoke the authorisation at their sole discretion and, in particular, shall immediately withdraw the authorisation where they have reasonable grounds to suspect that the exporter did not follow the conditions specified therein.

Exemptions granted according to the first subparagraph shall be considered as risk factors to be taken into account for the purposes of Article 2(1) of Council Regulation (EC) No 485/2008 ( 17 ).

Exporters using the exemption shall mention the authorisation number on the single administrative document and on the specific application for payment as referred to in Article 28 of this Regulation.

4.  By derogation from paragraph 3, in the cases provided for in point (b) of paragraph 2, Member States may exempt the exporter concerned from producing the transport documents for all exports covered by an authorisation, provided that the exporter concerned is required to produce the transport documents in respect of a minimum of 10 % of such export declarations or one per year, whichever is greater, to be selected by Member States applying the criteria laid down in Commission Regulation (EC) No 1276/2008 ( 18 ).

5.  In the case of the goods listed in Annex II to this Regulation where the export declaration was accepted not later than 30 September 2007 and for which the exporter is unable to provide the proof referred to in Article 17(1) of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009, the goods shall be deemed to have been imported into a third country on presentation of a copy of the transport document and either one of the documents listed in Article 17(2) of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009 or a bank document issued by approved intermediaries established in the Union, certifying that payment for the export has been credited to the account of the exporter opened with them, or the proof of payment.

6.  For the purposes of applying Article 27 of Regulation (EC) No 612/2009, Member States shall take into account paragraph 5.
