COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2017/1183

of 20 April 2017

on supplementing Regulations (EU) No 1307/2013 and (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to the notifications to the Commission of information and documents

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing rules for direct payments to farmers under support schemes within the framework of the common agricultural policy and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 637/2008 and Council Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 (1) and in particular Article 67(2) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 922/72, (EEC) No 234/79, (EC) No 1037/2001 and (EC) No 1234/2007 (2), and in particular Article 223(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulations (EU) No 1307/2013 and (EU) No 1308/2013 have repealed and replaced Council Regulations (EC) No 73/2009 (3) and (EC) No 1234/2007 (4) respectively. Regulations (EU) No 1307/2013 and (EU) No 1308/2013 and the acts adopted on the basis of those Regulations lay down a wide range of obligations on Member States to notify information and documents to the Commission. Those regulations also empower the Commission to adopt delegated and implementing acts in that respect. In order to ensure the smooth notification of information and documents to the Commission, certain rules have to be adopted by means of such acts. Those rules should replace the rules laid down in Commission Regulation (EC) No 792/2009 (5), which should therefore be repealed.

(2)

The Commission has intensified its efforts to develop computer systems that make it possible to manage documents and procedures electronically, both in its own internal working procedures and in its relations with the Member States' authorities responsible for implementation of the common agricultural policy. Member States also have developed computer systems at national level aimed at ensuring the shared management of the common agricultural policy.

(3)

In this context, a legal framework should establish common rules applicable to the information systems set up for the purpose of Member States notifying information and documents to the Commission.

(4)

The nature and type of information to be notified pursuant to Regulations (EU) No 1307/2013 and (EU) No 1308/2013 should also be laid down.

(5)

Where it is necessary to receive market information additional to that provided for in this Regulation and the accompanying implementing regulation because of a development in the market, the Commission should be authorised to request such information for a limited period of time.

(6)

In order to ensure the proper functioning of the notification system, those authorised to make notifications should always be identified within the information systems set up. The identification process should be under the responsibility of a single liaison body designated by each Member State. Furthermore, the conditions for granting access rights to information systems set up by the Commission should be determined,
