COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 1014/2014

of 22 July 2014

supplementing Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and repealing Council Regulations (EC) No 2328/2003, (EC) No 861/2006, (EC) No 1198/2006 and (EC) No 791/2007 and Regulation (EU) No 1255/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regards to the content and construction of a common monitoring and evaluation system for the operations funded under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 May 2014 on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and repealing Council Regulations (EC) No 2328/2003, (EC) No 861/2006, (EC) No 1198/2006 and (EC) No 791/2007 and Regulation (EU) No 1255/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council (1), and in particular Article 107(1) in conjunction with Article 109(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 107 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 provides for the establishment of a common monitoring and evaluation system with a view to measuring the performance of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). That system should help in particular to demonstrate the progress and achievements of the Common Fisheries Policy and the Union's Integrated Maritime Policy; to assess the effectiveness, efficiency and relevance of EMFF operations; to contribute to better targeted support for the Common Fisheries Policy and the Integrated Maritime Policy; to support a common learning process related to monitoring and evaluation; and to provide robust, evidence-based evaluations of the EMFF operations that feed into the decision-making process.

(2)

The content and the construction of the common monitoring and evaluation system should be defined in order to ensure that sufficient and appropriate evaluation activities are undertaken. It is therefore necessary to determine a list of common indicatorsto be used by the Member States so that data can be aggregated at Union level and the performance of the EMFF can be assessed by the Commission in relation to the policy objectives set out in Regulation (EU) No 508/2014.

(3)

According to Article 109 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 the common indicators must be applicable to each programme and must relate to the initial situation as well as to the financial execution, outputs and results of the programme. Those common indicators shall also be used for the performance review referred to in Article 21(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2).

(4)

The common indicators should be in accordance with the indicators set out for programme priorities in Article 27(4) of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013, which include indicators related to expenditure allocated, output indicators related to the operations supported and result indicators relating to the priority concerned. They should also include context indicators related to the initial situation before the implementation of the programme.

(5)

The indicators referred to in Article 107(2) of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 relate to the impact of the programme at the level of each Union Priority and are not covered by this Regulation.

(6)

In order to allow for the prompt application of the measures provided for in this Regulation, this Regulation should enter into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Content and construction of the monitoring and evaluation system

1.   The common monitoring and evaluation system referred to in Article 107 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 shall be constituted of the following elements:

(a)

an intervention logic showing the interactions between priorities, focus areas and measures as provided for in Article 18(1)(a) and Article 116 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014;

(b)

the set of common indicators referred to in Article 109 of Regulation (EU) No 508/2014;

(c)

COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 1015/2014

of 22 July 2014

amending Annexes II and III to Regulation (EU) No 978/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council applying a scheme of generalised tariff preferences, and repealing Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 154/2013

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 978/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 applying a scheme of generalised tariff preferences and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 732/2008 (1), and in particular Articles 5(3) and 10(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 4 of the Regulation (EU) No 978/2012 (‘the GSP Regulation’) establishes the criteria for granting tariff preferences under the general arrangement of the Generalised Scheme of Preferences (‘GSP’).

(2)

Article 4(1)(a) of the GSP Regulation provides that a country that has been classified by the World Bank as a high-income or an upper-middle income country for three consecutive years should not benefit from GSP preferences.

(3)

Article 4(1)(b) of the GSP Regulation provides that a country that benefits from a preferential market access arrangement which provides the same tariff preferences as the GSP, or better, for substantially all trade, should not enjoy GSP preferences.

(4)

The list of beneficiary countries of the general GSP is established by Annex II to the GSP Regulation. Article 5 of the GSP Regulation lays down that Annex II is to be reviewed by 1 January of each year to reflect changes in relation to the criteria laid down in Article 4. Furthermore, it provides for a GSP beneficiary country and economic operators to be given sufficient time for an orderly adaptation to the country's GSP status revision. Accordingly, the GSP arrangement is to continue for one year after the date of entry into force of a change in a country's status on the basis of Article 4(1)(a) and for two years from the date of application of a preferential market access arrangement, as provided by Article 4(1)(b).

(5)

Turkmenistan has been classified by the World Bank as an upper-middle income country in 2012, 2013 and 2014. Accordingly, Turkmenistan no longer qualifies for GSP beneficiary status under Article 4(1)(a) and should be removed from Annex II of the GSP Regulation. The decision to remove a beneficiary country from the list of GSP beneficiary countries should apply as from one year after the date of entry into force of that decision. In the interests of a uniform application, Turkmenistan should be removed from Annex II with effect from 1 January 2016.

(6)

Preferential market access arrangements with the following countries started to apply at various dates in 2013: Peru on 1 March 2013, Colombia, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama on 1 August 2013, Costa Rica and El Salvador on 1 October 2013 and Guatemala on 1 December 2013. In order to ensure a uniform application of the change to their GSP status and in line with the GSP Regulation, Peru, Colombia, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Guatemala should be removed from Annex II with effect from 1 January 2016.

(7)

Article 9(1) of the GSP Regulation establishes specific eligibility criteria for granting tariff preferences under the special incentive arrangement for sustainable development and good governance (‘GSP+’). One key condition is that the country must be a GSP beneficiary. The list of GSP+ beneficiaries is established in Annex III to the GSP Regulation.

(8)

As a consequence of their ceasing to be GSP beneficiaries, Costa-Rica, Guatemala, El Salvador, Panama and Peru also cease to be GSP+ beneficiaries under Article 9(1) of the GSP Regulation. Those countries should therefore be removed from Annex III to the GSP Regulation with effect from 1 January 2016.

(9)

Pursuant to Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1421/2013 (2), Ecuador ceases to be a GSP beneficiary as from 1 January 2015. Consequently, in line with Article 9 of the GSP Regulation, Ecuador will cease to be GSP+ beneficiary and should be removed from Annex III to the GSP Regulation with effect from the same date.

(10)

Following the entry into force of Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1421/2013 on 1 January 2014, Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 154/2013 (3) which provided a consolidated version of Annex II and also for the removal of Iran and Azerbaijan from the list of GSP beneficiary countries no longer applies. Therefore, for the sake of legal clarity, Delegated Regulation (EU) No 154/2013 should be repealed. However, in derogation from Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1421/2013, Delegated Regulation (EU) No 154/2013 should still apply until 22 February 2014 as regards Azerbaijan and Iran. Consequently, it needs to be clarified that Iran and Azerbaijan maintained GSP beneficiary status from 1 January 2014 to 22 February 2014,

of 22 July 2014

amending Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 978/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council applying a scheme of generalised tariff preferences

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to the European Parliament and Council Regulation (EU) No 978/2012 of 25 October 2012 applying a scheme of generalised tariff preferences and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 732/2008 (1), and in particular Article 5(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 4 of Regulation (EU) No 978/2012 (the GSP Regulation) establishes the criteria for granting tariff preferences under the general arrangement of the Generalised Scheme of Preferences (GSP).

(2)

Article 4(1)(a) of the GSP Regulation provides that a country that has been classified by the World Bank as a high-income or an upper-middle income country for three consecutive years should not benefit from GSP preferences. However, according to Article 4(3) of the GSP Regulation, Article 4(1)(a) should not apply until 21 November 2014 for countries that have initialled a bilateral preferential market access arrangement by 20 November 2012.

(3)

Article 4(1)(b) of the GSP Regulation provides that a country that benefits from a preferential market access arrangement which provides the same tariff preferences as the GSP, or better, for substantially all trade, should not enjoy GSP preferences.

(4)

The list of beneficiary countries of the general GSP is established by Annex II to the GSP Regulation. Article 5 of the GSP Regulation lays down that Annex II is to be reviewed by 1 January of each year, to reflect changes in relation to the criteria laid down in Article 4. Furthermore, it provides for a GSP beneficiary country and economic operators to be given sufficient time for an orderly adaptation to the country's GSP status revision. Accordingly, the GSP arrangement is to continue for one year after the date of entry into force of a change in a country's status on the basis of Article 4(1)(a).

(5)

By Council Regulation (EC) No 1528/2007 (2), the Republic of Botswana (Botswana), the Republic of Cameroon (Cameroon), the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire (Côte d'Ivoire), the Republic of Fiji (Fiji), the Republic of Ghana (Ghana), the Republic of Kenya (Kenya), the Republic of Namibia (Namibia) and the Kingdom of Swaziland (Swaziland), among others, are benefitting from a preferential market access arrangement which provides the same level of tariff preferences as, or better than, the GSP. In accordance with Article 4(1)(b) of the GSP Regulation, those countries were not included in Annex II since they were already benefitting from such preferential market access.

(6)

The abovementioned countries are included in Annex I of the GSP Regulation as GSP eligible countries.

(7)

By Regulation (EU) No 527/2013of the European Parliament and of the Council (3), as from 1 October 2014, Botswana, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Fiji, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, and Swaziland cease to be covered by the market access arrangement provided by Regulation (EC) No 1528/2007. These countries are GSP eligible countries as defined by Article 2(c) of the GSP Regulation and, as of 1 October 2014, meet the criteria of Article 4 of the GSP Regulation. Therefore, these countries should be included in Annex II to the GSP Regulation with application from 1 October 2014.

(8)

Botswana and Namibia have been classified by the World Bank as upper-middle income countries in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Nevertheless, both countries had initialled, but not applied, a bilateral preferential market access with the Union, which provides the same tariff preferences as GSP, or better, for substantially all trade by 20 November 2012. As a consequence, Article 4(1)(a) does not apply to those two countries until 21 November 2014.

(9)

In accordance with Article 5(2)(a) of the GSP Regulation, the decision to remove a beneficiary country from the list of GSP beneficiary countries shall apply as from one year after the date of entry into force of that decision. However, as a consequence of Article 4(3) of the GSP Regulation, the removal of Botswana and of Namibia cannot be effective before 22 November 2015. Consistently with the yearly update of Annex II to the GSP Regulation, the removal of Botswana and of Namibia from that Annex should be effective as from 1 January 2016. Consequently, Botswana and Namibia should be included in Annex II to the GSP Regulation from 1 October 2014 to 31 December 2015,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 1021/2014

of 26 September 2014

amending Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 669/2009 implementing Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the increased level of official controls on imports of certain feed and food of non-animal origin

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 on official controls performed to ensure the verification of compliance with feed and food law, animal health and animal welfare rules (1), and in particular Article 15(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 669/2009 (2) lays down rules concerning the increased level of official controls to be carried out on imports of feed and food of non-animal origin listed in Annex I thereto (‘the list’), at the points of entry into the territories referred to in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 882/2004.

(2)

Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 669/2009 provides that the list is to be reviewed on a regular basis, and at least quarterly, taking into account at least the sources of information referred to in that Article.

(3)

The occurrence and relevance of recent food incidents notified through the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed, the findings of audits to third countries carried out by the Food and Veterinary Office, as well as the quarterly reports on consignments of feed and food of non-animal origin submitted by Member States to the Commission in accordance with Article 15 of Regulation (EC) No 669/2009 indicate that the list should be amended.

(4)

In particular, for consignments of aubergines, Chinese celery and yardlong beans originating from Cambodia, sesamum seeds originating from India and dragon fruit originating from Viet Nam, the relevant sources of information indicate the emergence of new risks requiring the introduction of an increased level of official controls. Entries concerning those consignments should therefore be included in the list.

(5)

In addition, the list should be amended by deleting the entries for commodities for which the available information indicates an overall satisfactory degree of compliance with the relevant safety requirements provided for in Union legislation and for which an increased level of official controls is therefore no longer justified. The entries in the list concerning frozen strawberries and pomelos from China should therefore be deleted.

(6)

In order to ensure consistency and clarity, it is appropriate to replace Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 669/2009 by the text set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

(7)

Regulation (EC) No 669/2009 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(8)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 669/2009 is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from 1 October 2014.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION

of 25 September 2014

amending Implementing Decision 2012/270/EU as regards its period of application and as regards the movement to packing facilities of potato tubers originating in areas demarcated in order to prevent the spread within the Union of Epitrix cucumeris (Harris), Epitrix similaris (Gentner), Epitrix subcrinita (Lec.) and Epitrix tuberis (Gentner)

(notified under document C(2014) 6731)

(2014/679/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Directive 2000/29/EC of 8 May 2000 on protective measures against the introduction into the Community of organisms harmful to plants or plant products and against their spread within the Community (1), and in particular the fourth sentence of Article 16(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Decision 2012/270/EU (2) provides for emergency measures to prevent the introduction into and the spread within the Union of Epitrix cucumeris (Harris), Epitrix similaris (Gentner), Epitrix subcrinita (Lec.) and Epitrix tuberis (Gentner).

(2)

The development of the situation since Implementing Decision 2012/270/EU took effect has shown that the measures it provides for are efficacious and should continue to apply. Therefore, it is appropriate that that Implementing Decision applies without a limitation of time.

(3)

Experience shows that it is necessary to grant greater flexibility as regards the facility where the potato tubers undergo treatment ensuring that no more than 0,1 % of soil remains on them and that the specified organisms are removed. Therefore, it should be permitted that those tubers are moved outside the demarcated areas before that treatment takes place. The movement to those facilities should, however, be subject to requirements ensuring that the respective phytosanitary risk is reduced to acceptable levels.

(4)

In order to ensure that the specified organisms cannot establish or spread outside a demarcated area, requirements should be established concerning disposal of the relevant waste soil and other waste material. For the same purpose, requirements should also be established concerning vehicles and packaging for the transport or handling of those potato tubers before they move outside the demarcated area or from a packing facility located outside that area. It is also necessary that machinery used for the handling of potato tubers in the packing facilities located outside demarcated areas is cleaned to avoid infestation of other potatoes handled by the same machinery.

(5)

In order to facilitate control by Member States of the packing outside a demarcated area of potato tubers originating in such an area, it is important that packing facilities located outside demarcated areas are authorised for that purpose and required to keep records of the potato tubers handled which originate in demarcated areas.

(6)

Implementing Decision 2012/270/EU should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

Implementing Decision 2012/270/EU is amended as follows:

(1)

Article 3 is replaced by the following:

Article 3b

Requirements concerning packing facilities located outside the demarcated areas concerned

Packing facilities located outside the demarcated areas concerned and handling potato tubers originating in such areas, as referred to in the second subparagraph of Article 3(1), shall fulfil the following requirements:

(a)

they are authorised by the responsible official body to pack potato tubers originating in a demarcated area; and
