THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

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 (1), and in particular Article 223(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 792/2009 (2), establishes common rules for notifying information and documents by Member States to the Commission. Those rules cover in particular the obligation for the Member States to use the information systems made available by the Commission and the validation of the access rights of the authorities or individuals authorised to send notifications. Regulation (EC) No 792/2009 also sets common principles applying to the information systems so that they guarantee the authenticity, integrity and legibility over time of the documents and provides for personal data protection. The obligation to use those information systems has to be provided for in each Regulation establishing a specific notification obligation.

(2)

The Commission has developed an information system that enables it to manage documents and procedures electronically in its own internal working procedures and in its relations with the authorities involved in the common agricultural policy.

(3)

Several communication and notification obligations can be fulfilled through that system, in particular those provided for in Commission Regulations (EC) No 546/2003 (3), (EC) No 1342/2003 (4), (EC) No 952/2006 (5), (EC) No 826/2008 (6), (EC) No 1295/2008 (7), (EC) No 1296/2008 (8), (EU) No 1272/2009 (9), (EU) No 738/2010 (10) and Commission Implementing Regulations (EU) No 543/2011 (11) and (EU) No 511/2012 (12).

(4)

In the interest of efficient administration and taking account of the experience, some notifications obligations should be amended.

(5)

Regulations (EC) No 546/2003, (EC) No 1342/2003, (EC) No 952/2006, (EC) No 826/2008, (EC) No 1295/2008, (EC) No 1296/2008, (EU) No 1272/2009, (EU) No 738/2010 and Implementing Regulations (EU) No 543/2011 and (EU) No 511/2012 should therefore be amended accordingly.
