REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 OF THE COUNCIL OF 29 OCTOBER 1975 ON THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS

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 ) ;

WHEREAS SINCE THEIR ADOPTION THE BASIC PROVISIONS CONCERNING THE ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS HAVE BEEN AMENDED A NUMBER OF TIMES ; WHEREAS , BY REASON OF THEIR NUMBER , THEIR COMPLEXITY AND THEIR DISPERSAL AMONG VARIOUS OFFICIAL JOURNALS , THESE TEXTS ARE DIFFICULT TO USE AND THUS LACK THE CLARITY WHICH SHOULD BE AN ESSENTIAL FEATURE OF ALL LEGISLATION ; WHEREAS THEY SHOULD , THEREFORE , BE CONSOLIDATED IN A SINGLE TEXT ;

WHEREAS THE OPERATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE COMMON MARKET IN AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A COMMON AGRICULTURAL POLICY TO INCLUDE IN PARTICULAR A COMMON ORGANIZATION OF AGRICULTURAL MARKETS WHICH MAY TAKE VARIOUS FORMS DEPENDING ON THE PRODUCT ;

WHEREAS THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS MUST INCLUDE A SINGLE PRICE SYSTEM FOR CEREALS IN THE COMMUNITY ; WHEREAS SUCH A SYSTEM ENTAILS FIXING ANNUALLY FOR THE PRINCIPAL PRODUCTS A TARGET PRICE VALID FOR THE WHOLE WHOLE COMMUNITY , A SINGLE INTERVENTION PRICE OR A BASIC INTERVENTION PRICE FROM WHICH ARE OBTAINED VARIOUS DERIVED INTERVENTION PRICES AT WHICH THE RELEVANT AGENCIES MUST BUY IN THE CEREALS OFFERED TO THEM AND A THRESHOLD PRICE TO WHICH THE PRICE OF IMPORTED PRODUCTS MUST BE EQUATED BY MEANS OF A VARIABLE IMPORT LEVY ;

WHEREAS THE AIM OF THE COMMON AGRICULTURAL POLICY IS TO ATTAIN THE OBJECTIVES SET OUT IN ARTICLE 39 OF THE TREATY ; WHEREAS IN THE CEREALS SECTOR , IN ORDER TO STABILIZE MARKETS AND TO ENSURE A FAIR STANDARD OF LIVING FOR THE AGRICULTURAL COMMUNITY CONCERNED , INTERVENTION AGENCIES SHOULD BE ABLE TO TAKE INTERVENTION MEASURES ON THE MARKET ;

WHEREAS FREE MOVEMENT OF CEREALS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY SHOULD ENABLE SHORTAGES IN DEFICIT AREAS TO BE COVERED BY SURPLUSES IN PRODUCTION AREAS ; WHEREAS , SO AS NOT TO IMPEDE THIS IN THE CASE OF COMMON WHEAT , INTERVENTION PRICES DERIVED FROM THE BASIC PRICE SHOULD BE FIXED IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM REFLECT THE DISPARITIES WHICH , GIVEN A NORMAL HARVEST , ARISE UNDER NATURAL CONDITIONS OF PRICE FORMATION ON THE MARKET , AND THAT THE FORCES OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND MAY HAVE FREE PLAY ; WHEREAS , AS REGARDS THE OTHER BASIC PRODUCTS , SHORTAGES IN DEFICIT AREAS COULD BE COVERED BY SURPLUSES IN PRODUCTION AREAS IF A SINGLE INTERVENTION PRICE IS FIXED CORRESPONDING TO THE LOWEST INTERVENTION PRICES WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN FIXED IN THE COMMUNITY HAD THE SYSTEM PROVIDED FOR IN RESPECT OF COMMON WHEAT BEEN APPLIED TO THOSE PRODUCTS ;

WHEREAS , THE INTERVENTION AGENCIES MUST BE ABLE , IN SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES , TO TAKE INTERVENTION MEASURES SUITED TO THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES ; WHEREAS , HOWEVER , SO THAT THE REQUIRED UNIFORMITY OF INTERVENTION SYSTEMS MAY BE MAINTAINED , THOSE SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD BE ASSESSED AND THE APPROPRIATE MEASURES DETERMINED AT COMMUNITY LEVEL ;

WHEREAS , THE TARGET PRICES , INTERVENTION PRICES AND THRESHOLD PRICES SHOULD , IN THE COURSE OF THE MARKETING YEAR , BE SUBJECT TO A CERTAIN NUMBER OF MONTHLY INCREASES IN ORDER TO TAKE ACCOUNT , AMONG OTHER THINGS , OF STORAGE COSTS AND INTEREST CHARGES FOR STORING CEREALS IN THE COMMUNITY AND OF THE NEED TO ENSURE THAT THE DISPOSAL OF STOCKS CONFORMS TO MARKET REQUIREMENTS ;

WHEREAS IT MAY PROVE IMPOSSIBLE TO GIVE PRODUCERS OF DURUM WHEAT SUFFICIENT GUARANTEES BY FIXING A PRICE WHICH TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE RATIO EXISTING NORMALLY ON THE WORLD MARKET BETWEEN DURUM AND COMMON WHEAT PRICES ; WHEREAS THIS RATIO SHOULD BE RESPECTED SO FAR AS POSSIBLE IN THE COMMUNITY BECAUSE OF THE INTERCHANGEABILITY OF THESE TWO PRODUCTS ; WHEREAS PROVISION MUST THEREFORE BE MADE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF GRANTING AID TO PRODUCERS OF DURUM WHEAT ;

WHEREAS IN VIEW OF THE SPECIAL MARKET SITUATION FOR CEREAL STARCH , POTATO STARCH AND GLUCOSE PRODUCED BY THE " DIRECT HYDROLYSIS " PROCESS IT MAY PROVE NECESSARY TO PROVIDE FOR A PRODUCTION REFUND OF SUCH A NATURE THAT THE BASIC PRODUCTS USED BY THIS INDUSTRY CAN BE MADE AVAILABLE TO IT AT A LOWER PRICE THAN THAT RESULTING FROM THE APPLICATION OF THE SYSTEM OF LEVIES AND COMMON PRICES ;

WHEREAS THE CREATION OF A SINGLE COMMUNITY MARKET FOR CEREALS INVOLVES , APART FROM A SINGLE PRICE SYSTEM , THE INTRODUCTION OF A SINGLE TRADING SYSTEM AT THE EXTERNAL FRONTIERS OF THE COMMUNITY ; WHEREAS A TRADING SYSTEM INCLUDING LEVIES AND EXPORT REFUNDS , COMBINED WITH INTERVENTION MEASURES , ALSO SERVES TO STABILIZE THE COMMUNITY MARKET , IN PARTICULAR BY PREVENTING PRICE FLUCTUATIONS ON THE WORLD MARKET FROM AFFECTING PRICES RULING WITHIN THE COMMUNITY ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR CHARGING A LEVY ON IMPORTS FROM THIRD COUNTRIES AND FOR THE PAYMENT OF A REFUND ON EXPORTS TO THESE COUNTRIES , BOTH BEING DESIGNED TO COVER THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRICES RULING OUTSIDE AND WITHIN THE COMMUNITY ; WHEREAS , MOREOVER , IN RESPECT OF PRODUCTS PROCESSED FROM CEREALS TO WHICH THIS REGULATION APPLIES , ACCOUNT SHOULD BE TAKEN OF THE NEED TO ENSURE A MEASURE OF PROTECTION FOR THE COMMUNITY PROCESSING INDUSTRY ;

WHEREAS , IN ADDITION TO THE SYSTEM DESCRIBED ABOVE , AND TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY FOR ITS PROPER WORKING , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR REGULATING OR , WHEN THE SITUATION ON THE MARKET SO REQUIRES , PROHIBITING TOTALLY OR PARTIALLY THE USE OF " INWARD PROCESSING ARRANGEMENTS " ; WHEREAS , MOREOVER , THE REFUND SHOULD BE FIXED IN SUCH A WAY THAT OPERATIONS UNDER INWARD PROCESSING ARRANGEMENTS DO NOT LEAD THE COMMUNITY PROCESSING INDUSTRY TO USE , WITH A VIEW TO EXPORT , BASIC PRODUCTS IMPORTED FROM THIRD COUNTRIES IN PREFERENCE TO COMMUNITY BASIC PRODUCTS ;

WHEREAS THE COMPETENT AUTHORITIES MUST BE IN A POSITION CONSTANTLY TO FOLLOW TRADE MOVEMENTS IN ORDER TO ASSESS MARKET TRENDS AND TO APPLY THE MEASURES LAID DOWN IN THIS REGULATION AS NECESSARY ; WHEREAS , TO THAT END , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE ISSUE OF IMPORT AND EXPORT LICENCES ACCOMPANIED BY THE PROVISION OF SECURITY GUARANTEEING THAT THE TRANSACTIONS FOR WHICH SUCH LICENCES ARE REQUESTED ARE EFFECTED ;

WHEREAS THE LEVY SYSTEM MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO DISPENSE WITH ALL OTHER PROTECTIVE MEASURES AT THE EXTERNAL FRONTIERS OF THE COMMUNITY ; WHEREAS , HOWEVER , THE COMMON PRICE AND LEVY MACHINERY MAY IN EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES PROVE DEFECTIVE ; WHEREAS , IN SUCH CASES , SO AS NOT TO LEAVE THE COMMUNITY MARKET WITHOUT DEFENCE AGAINST DISTURBANCES , THE COMMUNITY SHOULD BE ENABLED TO TAKE ALL NECESSARY MEASURES WITHOUT DELAY ;

WHEREAS , IN A SITUATION OF HIGH PRICES ON THE WORLD MARKET , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR APPROPRIATE MEASURES TO BE TAKEN IN ORDER TO SAFEGUARD COMMUNITY SUPPLIES AND TO STABILIZE PRICES ON COMMUNITY MARKETS ;

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 WHICH ALLOW THE ASSESSMENT OF AIDS GRANTED BY MEMBER STATES AND THE PROHIBITION OF THOSE WHICH ARE INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE COMMON MARKET SHOULD BE MADE TO APPLY TO CEREALS ;

WHEREAS ITALY SHOULD BE AUTHORIZED FOR SOME YEARS TO TAKE MEASURES TO REDUCE THE IMPACT OF THE NEW SYSTEM ON THE LEVEL OF PRICES FOR FEED GRAIN IN THAT MEMBER STATE IN ORDER TO FACILITATE THE ADJUSTMENT OF THE ITALIAN MARKET TO THAT NEW SYSTEM ;

WHEREAS THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS MUST INCLUDE THE PRODUCTS OF PRIMARY PROCESSING WHICH CONTAIN CEREALS OR CERTAIN PRODUCTS WHICH DO NOT CONTAIN CEREALS BUT WHICH ARE DIRECTLY INTERCHANGEABLE IN THEIR USE WITH CEREALS OR WITH PRODUCTS OBTAINED FROM CEREALS ;

WHEREAS THE COMMUNITY IS REQUIRED UNDER INTERNATIONAL OBLIGATIONS CONCERNING CEREALS , TO FURNISH CERTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT THE TRENDS ON ITS MARKET ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR MEMBER STATES TO FURNISH THE COMMISSION WITH THE NECESSARY PARTICULARS ;

WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO FACILITATE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PROPOSED MEASURES , A PROCEDURE SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR ESTABLISHING CLOSE COOPERATION BETWEEN MEMBER STATES AND THE COMMISSION WITHIN A MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE ;

WHEREAS THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY IS A PARTY TO THE INTERNATIONAL WHEAT AGREEMENT ; WHEREAS PROVISIONS FOR MOBILIZING FOOD AID SHOULD BE ADOPTED ; WHEREAS IT SHOULD BE PROVIDED THAT , SAVE IN EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES , PRODUCTS INTENDED AS FOOD AID SHOULD BE OBTAINED ON THE COMMUNITY MARKET ; WHEREAS SUCH PRODUCTS ARE TO BE PURCHASED ON THAT MARKET , TAKEN FROM CEREAL STOCKS HELD BY INTERVENTION AGENCIES OR MANUFACTURED FROM SUCH CEREALS ;

WHEREAS THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS MUST TAKE APPROPRIATE ACCOUNT , AT THE SAME TIME , OF THE OBJECTIVES SET OUT IN ARTICLES 39 AND 110 OF THE TREATY ;

WHEREAS THE EXPENDITURE INCURRED BY THE MEMBER STATES AS A RESULT OF THE OBLIGATIONS ARISING OUT OF THE APPLICATION OF THIS REGULATION FALL ON THE COMMUNITY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLES 2 AND 3 OF COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 729/70 ( 2 ) OF 21 APRIL 1970 ON THE FINANCING OF THE COMMON AGRICULTURAL POLICY , AS AMENDED BY REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 1566/72 ( 3 ) ,
