COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 793/2006

of 12 April 2006

laying down certain detailed rules for applying Council Regulation (EC) 247/2006 laying down specific measures for agriculture in the outermost regions of the Union

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 247/2006 of 30 January 2006 laying down specific measures for agriculture in the outermost regions of the Union (1), and in particular Article 25 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In view of the changes introduced by Regulation (EC) 247/2006 and the experience gained, and in the interests of legislative simplification, Commission Regulations (EEC) No 388/92 (2), (EEC) No 2174/92 (3), (EEC) No 2233/92 (4), (EEC) No 2234/92 (5), (EEC) No 2235/92 (6), (EEC) No 2039/93 (7), (EEC) No 2040/93 (8), (EC) No 1418/96 (9), (EC) No 2054/96 (10), (EC) No 20/2002 (11), (EC) No 1195/2002 (12), (EC) No 43/2003 (13), (EC) No 995/2003 (14), (EC) No 14/2004 (15) and (EC) No 188/2005 (16) should be repealed and replaced by a single Regulation laying down rules for applying Regulation (EC) No 247/2006.

(2)

Detailed implementing rules should be laid down for drawing up and amending the forecast supply balances for products eligible under the specific supply arrangements.

(3)

Certain agricultural products which are exempt from import duties already require an import licence. In the interests of administrative simplification, the import licence should be used to support the arrangements for exemption from import duties.

(4)

A document should also be adopted to support the arrangements for exemption from import duties for other agricultural products which do not require an import licence. An exemption certificate, drawn up on the import licence form, should be used for this purpose.

(5)

Detailed rules should be laid down for fixing the amount of aid for the supply of products under the specific supply arrangements. Such rules should take account of the additional costs of supply to the outermost regions due to their remote and insular nature, which constitute a burden that severely handicaps them. In order to maintain the competitiveness of Community products, this aid should take account of the prices applied to exports.

(6)

The aid scheme for Community products should be managed by means of a certificate, called an ‘aid certificate’, using the import licence form.

(7)

Management of the specific supply arrangements requires the introduction of detailed rules on the issue of the aid certificate, which derogate from the normal rules applicable to import licences pursuant to Commission Regulation (EC) No 1291/2000 of 9 June 2000 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance fixing certificates for agricultural products (17).

(8)

Management of the specific supply arrangements must allow two objectives to be pursued. First, it should promote the rapid issue of licences and certificates, particularly by no longer requiring a security to be lodged beforehand in all cases, and the rapid payment of aid for supplies of Community products. Second, it should guarantee the control and monitoring of operations and provide the administrative authorities with the instruments they need to ascertain that the objectives of the scheme are being attained, those being to secure a regular supply of certain agricultural products and to offset the effects of the geographical situation of the outermost regions by ensuring that the advantages of the scheme are actually passed on to the stage at which the products destined for the end‐users are placed on the market.

(9)

One of the those instruments consists in registering operators pursuing an economic activity under the specific supply arrangements. Registered operators are entitled to benefit from the arrangements, provided they meet the obligations laid down in Community and national rules. Applicants should be entitled to registration provided that they meet a certain number of objective requirements designed to facilitate administration of the scheme.

(10)

The detailed rules for the administration of the specific supply arrangements must ensure that, within the framework of the quantities laid down in the forecast supply balances, registered operators obtain a licence or certificate for the products and quantities involved in the commercial transactions which they carry out on their own account, on presentation of documents certifying that the operation is genuine and that the application for a licence or certificate is in order.

(11)

Monitoring of operations qualifying under the specific supply arrangements requires, inter alia, the period of validity of licences and certificates to be suited to the requirements of air or sea transport, proof to be furnished that the supply operation covered by the licence or certificate has been carried out in a short time-span, and the transfer of the rights and obligations conferred on the holder of the licence or certificate in question to be prohibited.

(12)

The benefits granted in the form of exemption from import duties and aid for Community products must be passed on so that they are reflected in production costs and in the prices paid by the end‐users. Checks are therefore needed to ensure that the benefits are actually passed on.

(13)

Regulation (EC) No 247/2006 stipulates that products covered by the specific supply arrangements may not be exported to third countries or dispatched to the rest of the Community. However, that Regulation provides for a limited number of derogations to that principle, which vary according to the region concerned. Detailed rules should be laid down on the granting and monitoring of such derogations. In particular, it is expedient to lay down the maximum quantities of processed products which may be the subject of traditional exports or consignments, as well as the quantities of products and the destinations of exports of products processed locally, with a view to encouraging regional trade.

(14)

In order to protect consumers and the commercial interests of operators, products which are not of sound and fair marketable quality, within the meaning of Commission Regulation (EC) No 800/1999 of 15 April 1999 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of export refunds on agricultural products (18), should be excluded from the specific supply arrangements no later than the time when they are first placed on the market and appropriate steps should be taken where this requirement is not met.

(15)

In the context of the partnership procedures in force for the outermost regions, the competent authorities should lay down the detailed administrative rules needed to ensure the management and monitoring of the specific supply arrangements. Moreover, to ensure that the arrangements are properly monitored, rules are needed to specify the checks to be carried out. Administrative penalties to ensure the smooth functioning of the mechanisms implemented should therefore be specified.

(16)

In order to be able to assess how the arrangements are being implemented, the competent authorities should be required to report to the Commission at regular intervals.

(17)

The coverage of aid applications and the documents to be attached with a view to assessing their justification should be specified for each aid scheme directed at local production.

(18)

It should be possible to amend at any time aid applications containing manifest errors.

(19)

The deadlines for submitting and amending aid applications must be complied with to enable the national authorities to programme and subsequently carry out effective checks on the correctness of applications for aid for local production. Time limits should therefore be fixed beyond which submissions can no longer be accepted. Moreover, a reduction should be applied to encourage growers to respect the time limits.

(20)

Growers should be allowed to withdraw their applications for aid for local production or parts thereof at any time, provided that the competent authority has not yet informed the grower of any errors contained in the aid application or announced an on-the-spot check which reveals errors in the part concerned by the withdrawal.

(21)

Compliance with the rules on aid schemes managed under the integrated administration and control system should be effectively monitored. To this end, and to achieve a harmonised level of monitoring in all Member States, the criteria and technical procedures for carrying out administrative and on-the-spot checks should be set out in detail. Where appropriate, the Member States should strive to combine the various checks under this Regulation with those provided for under other Community provisions.

(22)

The minimum number of growers to undergo on-the-spot checks under the various aid schemes should be determined.

(23)

The sample for the minimum rate of on-the-spot checks should be selected partly on the basis of a risk analysis and partly at random. The main factors to be taken into consideration for the risk analysis should be specified.

(24)

Where significant irregularities are found, the rate of on-the-spot checks should be increased during the current and following years in order to attain an acceptable level of assurance that the aid applications concerned are correct.

(25)

For on-the-spot checks to be effective, it is important for the inspectors to be informed of the reasons for which the growers concerned have been selected for an on-the-spot check. The Member States should keep records of such information.

(26)

In order to enable the national authorities and any competent Community authority to follow up on-the-spot checks carried out, the details of checks should be recorded in an inspection report. Growers or their representatives should be given the opportunity to sign the report. However, in the case of remote-sensing checks, the Member States should be allowed to provide for this right only in cases where the check reveals irregularities. Moreover, irrespective of the kind of on-the-spot check carried out, the grower should receive a copy of the report if irregularities are found.

(27)

To protect the Community's financial interests effectively, adequate measures should be adopted to combat irregularities and fraud.

(28)

Reductions and exclusions should be determined having regard to the principle of proportionality and the special problems arising in cases of force majeure, exceptional circumstances and natural disasters. Such reductions and exclusions should be graded according to the gravity of the irregularity committed and should go as far as the total exclusion from one or more aid schemes for local production for a specified period.

(29)

As a general rule, reductions and exclusions should not be applied where growers have submitted factually correct information or can otherwise show that they are not at fault.

(30)

Growers who notify the competent national authorities at any time of incorrect aid applications should not be the subject of reductions or exclusions, irrespective of the reason for the incorrectness, provided the grower concerned has not been informed of the competent authority's intention to carry out an on-the-spot check and provided the authority has not already informed the grower of any irregularity in the application. The same should apply to incorrect data contained in the computerised database.

(31)

Where various reductions are to be applied to the same grower, they should be applied independently of each other. Moreover, the reductions and exclusions provided for in this Regulation should be applied without prejudice to additional penalties under any other provisions of Community or national law.

(32)

Growers who are unable to fulfil the obligations provided for under the detailed rules for implementing the programmes as a consequence of force majeure or exceptional circumstances should not lose their entitlement to the aid. It should be specified which cases, in particular, may be recognised by the competent authorities as exceptional circumstances.

(33)

In order to ensure uniform application of the principle of good faith throughout the Community, where unduly paid amounts are recovered, the conditions under which that principle may be invoked should be laid down without prejudice to the treatment of the expenditure concerned in the context of the clearance of accounts.

(34)

The detailed rules required to apply the graphic symbol aimed at ensuring greater awareness and consumption of processed and unprocessed quality agricultural products specific to the outermost regions of the Community should be adopted.

(35)

The conditions for the use of the graphic symbol, namely the drafting of the list of natural and processed agricultural products which may bear the symbol and the definition of the quality characteristics, methods of production, packaging and manufacture of processed products should be proposed by the trade organisations in the outermost regions. It should be specified that it must be possible to adopt these requirements by reference to existing standards under Community rules or, failing these, to international standards, or by reference to traditional methods of cultivation and manufacture.

(36)

In order to make the best possible use of this specific promotional instrument available to producers and manufacturers of quality products specific to the outermost regions, and in the interests of simplifying management and control and making them more effective, the right to use the graphic symbol should be conferred on operators established in those regions who are directly responsible for the production, packaging for marketing purposes and manufacture of the products concerned and who give an undertaking to fulfil certain obligations.

(37)

It is the responsibility of the competent authorities in the regions concerned to adopt the additional administrative requirements needed to ensure the correct operation of the mechanisms put in place and to guarantee compliance with those obligations.

(38)

Provision should be made for the Commission to be notified of the information it requires in order to ensure that the conditions for the use of the graphic symbol are as uniform as possible throughout the different outermost regions.

(39)

For the purposes of exempting tobacco imported into the Canary Islands from customs duties, it is necessary to define the annual period for calculating the maximum quantity of tobacco products referred to in Article 22 of Regulation (EC) No 247/2006 and to define the term ‘local manufacture of tobacco products’. In addition, in order to ensure maximum flexibility, permission should be granted for the overall quantity of unmanufactured stemmed/stripped tobacco to be used for imports of other products, on the basis of a coefficient of equivalence, depending on the requirements of the local industry.

(40)

As a general rule, the Member States should take any further measures necessary to ensure that this Regulation is properly implemented.

(41)

Where appropriate, the Commission should be informed of any measures taken by the Member States to implement the aid schemes provided for in this Regulation. In order to enable the Commission to monitor effectively, the Member States should regularly send it certain statistics on the aid schemes.

(42)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Direct Payments,

(a)

as regards specific additional transport costs, the intermediate reloading costs involved in supplying goods to the outermost regions concerned;

(b)

as regards the specific additional costs involved in local processing, the small size of the market, the need to guarantee security of supply and the specific quality requirements for goods in the outermost regions concerned.

CHAPTER IV

Common provisions

Article 8

Passing on the advantage to the end‐user

1.   For the purposes of applying this Title:

(a)

the ‘advantage’ referred to in Article 3(4) of Regulation (EC) No 247/2006 means either the exemption from customs duties or the grant of Community aid provided for in that Regulation;

(b)

‘end‐user’ means

(i)

in the case of products for direct consumption: the consumer;

(ii)

in the case of products for the processing or packaging industry which are intended for human consumption:

the final processor or packager, for the part of the aid intended to compensate for remoteness, insularity and distant location,

the consumer, for the additional part of the aid intended to take account of export prices;

(iii)

in the case of products for the processing or packaging industry for use as animal feed and products for use as agricultural inputs: the farmer.

2.   The competent authorities shall take all appropriate steps to check that the advantage is actually passed on to the end‐user. In doing so they may assess the trading margins and prices applied by the various operators concerned.

The measures referred to in the first subparagraph, and in particular the control points used to determine whether the aid has been passed on, and any amendments made, shall be notified to the Commission in the context of the report provided for in Article 48.

Article 9

Register of operators

1.   Import licences, exemption certificates and aid certificates shall be issued only to operators entered in a register kept by the competent authorities (hereinafter referred to as the register).

2.   Any operator established in the Community may apply to be entered in the register.

Entry in the register shall be subject to the following conditions:

(a)

operators shall possess the means, structures and legal authorisations required to carry on their activities and shall, in particular, have duly complied with their obligations regarding business accounting and taxation;

(b)

operators shall be able to guarantee that their activities are carried on in the outermost region concerned;

(c)

in the context of the specific supply arrangements for the outermost region concerned, and in compliance with the objectives of those arrangements, operators shall undertake to:

(i)

communicate to the competent authorities, at their request, all relevant information about their commercial activities, particularly regarding the prices and profit margins they practise,

(ii)

operate exclusively in their own name and on their own account,

(iii)

submit licence and certificate applications commensurate with their real capacity to dispose of the products concerned, such capacity being proven by reference to objective factors,

(iv)

refrain from acting in any way likely to create artificial shortages of products and from marketing the available products at artificially low prices,

(v)

ensure to the satisfaction of the competent authorities that, when the agricultural products are disposed of in the outermost region concerned, the advantage is passed on to the end‐user.

3.   Operators intending to dispatch or export processed or unprocessed products under the conditions referred to in Article 16 shall, at the time of applying for entry in the register or later, declare their intention to engage in this activity and indicate the location of the packaging plant where applicable.

4.   Processors intending to export or dispatch processed products under the conditions referred to in Article 16 or 18 shall, at the time of applying for entry in the register or later, declare their intention to engage in this activity, indicate the location of the processing plant and, where applicable, provide analytical lists of the processed products.

Article 10

Documents to be presented by operators and validity of licences and certificates

1.   Subject to Articles 4(5), 5(6), 7(7), 14 and 15, the competent authorities shall accept the import-licence, exemption-certificate or aid-certificate application presented by operators for each consignment, provided that they are accompanied by the original or a certified copy of the purchase invoice and the original or a certified copy of the following documents:

(a)

the bill of lading or airway bill;

(b)

the certificate of origin for products originating in third countries or, for products originating in the Community, the T2L document, or the T2LF document under the terms of Article 315(1) and (2) of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2454/93 (19).

The purchase invoice, bill of lading or airway bill must be drawn up in the name of the applicant.

2.   The period of validity of licences and certificates shall be fixed on the basis of the transportation time. This time may be extended by the competent authority in special cases where serious and unforeseeable difficulties affect the transportation time, but may not exceed two months from the date on which the licence or certificate was issued.

Article 11

Presentation of licences, certificates and goods; non-transferability of licences and certificates

1.   For products covered by the specific supply arrangements, import licences, exemption certificates and aid certificates shall be presented to the customs authorities with a view to completing the customs formalities within no more than 15 working days from the date of unloading the goods. The competent authorities may reduce this maximum time.

In the case of products which have been the subject of inward processing or customs warehousing in the Azores, Madeira and the Canary Islands and subsequently released into free circulation there, the maximum period of 15 days shall start to run on the date on which the licences or certificates referred to in the first subparagraph are applied for.

2.   The goods shall be presented in bulk or in separate lots corresponding to the licence or certificate presented.

The licences and certificates shall be used for a single operation only when completing the customs formalities.

3.   Licences and certificates shall not be transferable.

Article 12

Quality of products

Only products of sound and fair marketable quality, within the meaning of Article 21(1) of Regulation (EC) No 800/1999, may qualify for the specific supply arrangements.

Conformity of the products with the requirements laid down in the first paragraph shall be examined no later than the stage of first marketing, in accordance with the standards or practices in force in the Community.

Where a product is considered not to meet the requirements laid down in the first paragraph, its entitlement under the specific supply arrangements shall be withdrawn and the corresponding quantity shall be reattributed to the forecast supply balance. Where aid has been granted in accordance with Article 7, the aid shall be reimbursed. Where imports have been made in accordance with Articles 4 or 5, the import duty shall be paid, unless the party concerned supplies proof that the products have been re-exported or destroyed.

Article 13

Lodging of security

No security shall be required when applying for import licences, exemption certificates or aid certificates.

However, in special cases and to the extent necessary to ensure the proper application of this Regulation, the competent authorities may require a security to be lodged equal to the amount of the advantage accorded. In such cases, Article 35(1) and (4) of Regulation (EC) No 1291/2000 shall apply.

Article 14

Significant increases in applications for licences and certificates

1.   If the state of execution of a forecast supply balance indicates a significant increase in applications for import licences, exemption certificates or aid certificates for a given product which might jeopardise achievement of one or more of the objectives of the specific supply arrangements, the Member State shall take all necessary steps to ensure that the outermost region concerned is supplied with essential products, taking account of available supply and the requirements of the priority sectors.

2.   In the event of restrictions on the issue of licences and certificates, the competent authorities shall apply to all pending applications a uniform reduction percentage.

3.   Paragraphs 1 and 2 shall apply after the authorities concerned have been consulted.

Article 15

Fixing a maximum quantity per licence or certificate application

In so far as is strictly necessary to avoid disturbances on the market in the outermost region concerned, or the pursuit of speculative actions likely to be prejudicial to the smooth functioning of the specific supply arrangements, the competent authorities shall fix a maximum quantity per licence or certificate application.

The competent authorities shall notify the Commission immediately of the instances in which this Article is applied.

CHAPTER V

Export and dispatch

Article 16

Conditions of export or dispatch

1.   The export and dispatch of unprocessed products which have benefited from the specific supply arrangements, or packaged or processed products containing products which have benefited from the specific supply arrangements, shall be subject to the requirements laid down in paragraphs 2 to 6.

2.   For exported products, box 44 of the export declaration shall contain one of the entries listed in Annex I(H).

3.   Quantities of products which have been exempt from import duties and which are exported shall be reattributed to the forecast supply balance.

Such products shall not be eligible for export refunds.

4.   Quantities of products which have been exempt from import duties and are dispatched shall be reattributed to the forecast supply balance and the amount of the erga omnes import duties applicable on the day of importation shall be paid by the consignor by the time of dispatch at the latest.

Such products may not be dispatched until the payment referred to in the first subparagraph has taken place.

Where it is impossible to establish the day of importation, products shall be considered to have been imported on the day on which the highest erga omnes import duties applied during the six-month period preceding the day of dispatch.

5.   Quantities of products which have benefited from aid and are exported or dispatched shall be reattributed to the forecast supply balance and the aid granted shall be reimbursed by the exporter or consignor by the time of export or dispatch at the latest.

Those products may not be dispatched or exported until the reimbursement referred to in the first subparagraph has been made.

Where it is impossible to establish the amount of aid granted, the products shall be considered to have received the highest rate of aid fixed by the Community for such products during the six-month period preceding the submission of the application for export or dispatch.

Such products may benefit from an export refund, provided that the criteria for granting such a refund are met.

6.   The competent authorities shall authorise the export or dispatch of quantities of processed products other than those referred to in paragraphs 3, 4 and 5 of this Article and in Article 18 only where the processor or exporter certifies that the products concerned do not contain raw materials imported or introduced under the specific supply arrangements.

The competent authorities shall authorise the re-export or redispatch of unprocessed products or packaged products other than those referred to in paragraphs 3, 4 and 5 of this Article only where the exporter certifies that those products have not benefited from specific supply arrangements.

The competent authorities shall carry out the necessary checks to ensure the accuracy of the certificates referred to in the first and second subparagraphs and shall, if necessary, recover the advantage.

Article 17

Export licence and significant increase in exports

1.   Export of the following products shall not be subject to the presentation of an export licence:

(a)

the products referred to in Article 16(3);

(b)

the products referred to in Article 16(5) which do not fulfil the conditions for the grant of an export refund.

2.   If there is a risk that regular supplies to the outermost regions might be jeopardised by a significant increase in exports of the products referred to in Article 16(1), the competent authorities may restrict quantities in such a way as to ensure that priority needs in the sectors concerned are met. This quantitative restriction shall be applied in a non-discriminatory manner.

Article 27

Late submission of applications

Except in cases of force majeure and exceptional circumstances, submission of an aid application after the time limit laid down in accordance with Article 25 shall lead to a 1 % reduction per working day in the amounts to which the grower would have been entitled if the aid application had been lodged within the time limit. If the delay amounts to more than 25 calendar days, the application shall be considered inadmissible.

Article 28

Withdrawal of aid applications

Administrative checks shall be exhaustive and shall include cross-checks with, inter alia, data from the integrated administration and control system provided for in Chapter 4 of Title II of Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003.

On the basis of a risk analysis in accordance with Article 32(1) of this Regulation, the competent authorities shall perform on-the-spot checks by sampling at least 5 % of aid applications. The sample must also represent at least 5 % of the amounts covered by the aid.

In all appropriate cases, Member States shall make use of the integrated administration and control system.

Article 31

On-the-spot checks

1.   On-the-spot checks shall be unannounced. However, provided that the purpose of the check is not compromised, advance notice limited to the strict minimum necessary may be given. Such notice shall not exceed 48 hours, except in duly justified cases.

2.   Where applicable, the on-the-spot checks provided for in this Chapter shall be carried out in conjunction with any other checks provided for by Community legislation.

3.   The aid application or applications concerned shall be rejected if growers or their representatives prevent an on-the-spot check from being carried out.

Article 32

Selection of growers to be subjected to on-the-spot checks

1.   Growers shall be selected to undergo on-the-spot checks by the competent authority on the basis of a risk analysis and the representativeness of the aid applications submitted. The risk analysis shall take account of:

(a)

the amount of aid;

(b)

the number of agricultural parcels, the surface area and the number of animals covered by the aid application, or the quantity produced, transported, processed or marketed;

(c)

changes on the previous year;

(d)

the findings of checks performed in the preceding years;

(e)

other parameters to be defined by the Member States.

To provide the element of representativeness, Member States shall randomly select between 20 and 25 % of the minimum number of growers to be subjected to on-the-spot checks.

2.   The competent authority shall keep records of the reasons why specific growers were selected for on-the-spot checks. The inspector performing the on-the-spot check shall be informed of those reasons before beginning the check.

Article 33

Inspection report

1.   Every on-the-spot check shall be the subject of an inspection report relating the details of the checks carried out. Reports shall indicate in particular:

(a)

the aid schemes and applications checked;

(b)

the persons present;

(c)

the agricultural parcels checked, the agricultural parcels measured, the results of the measurements per parcel measured and the measuring methods used;

(d)

the number and type of animals found and, where applicable, the ear tag numbers, entries in the register and in the computerised database for bovine animals and any supporting documents checked, the results of the checks and, where applicable, particular observations in respect of individual animals or their identification code;

(e)

the quantities produced, transported, processed or marketed which are covered by the check;

(f)

whether advance notice was given to the grower of the visit and, if so, how much;

(g)

any further control measures carried out.

2.   Growers or their representatives shall be given the opportunity to sign the report to attest their presence at the check and to add observations. Where irregularities are found the grower shall receive a copy of the inspection report.

Where the on-the-spot check is carried out by remote-sensing, the Member States may decide not to give the growers or their representatives the opportunity to sign the inspection report if no irregularities are revealed during the check by remote-sensing.

CHAPTER IV

Reductions and exclusions, and undue payments

Article 34

Reductions and exclusions

In the event of a discrepancy between the information declared in the context of aid applications and the findings of the inspections referred to in Chapter III, the Member State shall apply reductions and exclusions to the aid. Those reductions and exclusions shall be effective and proportionate and shall act as a deterrent.

Article 35

Exceptions to the application of reductions and exclusions

1.   The reductions and exclusions provided for in Article 34 shall not apply where the beneficiary submitted factually correct information or can otherwise show that he or she is not at fault.

2.   The reductions and exclusions shall not apply with regard to those parts of the aid application which the beneficiary informs the competent authority in writing are incorrect or have become incorrect since it was lodged, provided that the competent authority has not already informed the beneficiary of its intention to carry out an on-the-spot check or of any irregularity in the application.

On the basis of the information given by the beneficiary as referred to in the first subparagraph, the aid application shall be rectified to reflect the actual situation.

Article 36

Recovery of undue payments and penalties

1.   In the event of undue payment, Article 73 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 796/2004 (23) shall apply mutatis mutandis.

Article 37

Force majeure and exceptional circumstances
