COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 2826/82

of 22 October 1982

providing for the grant of private storage aid fixed at a standard rate in advance in respect of hindquarters of beef and amending for the second time Regulation (EEC) No 1091/80

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 805/68 of 27 June 1968 on the common organization of the market in beef and veal (1), as last amended by the Act of Accession of Greece, and in particular Articles 6 (5) (b) and 8 (2) thereof,

Whereas, in view of the different price trends at present obtaining in the various Member States and in particular the seasonal difficulties on the market in hindquarters, private storage aid should be granted in respect of hindquarters of adult bovine animals;

Whereas the provisions of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1091/80 (2), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2629/80 (3), should be followed in respect of the grant of private storage aid for beef;

Whereas provisions should be made to ensure that the animals whose hindquarters are involved be slaughtered exclusively in slaughterhouses which are approved and supervised in accordance with the provisions of Council Directive 64/433/EEC (4), as last amended by Directive 81/476/EEC (5);

Whereas Article 3 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 989/68 (6), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 428/77 (7), provides that if the market situation so requires, the period of storage may be curtailed or extended; whereas it is therefore appropriate that, in addition to the amounts of aid granted for a specific storage period, amounts to be added or reduced in the event of that period being extended or curtailed should also be fixed;

Whereas, in order to prevent the financing of normal private storage, it appears desirable to fix high minimum quantities;

Whereas provision should be made for the possibility of reducing the storage period where meat removed from storage is intended for export; whereas proof that the meat has been exported must be supplied as in the case of refunds, in accordance with Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2730/79 (8), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 202/82 (9);

Whereas experience gained with various arrangements of private storage of agricultural products has shown the need to specify to what extent Council Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 1182/71 (10) applies to the determination of periods, dates and time limits referred to under these arrangements and to define accurately the dates when storage under contract starts and finishes;

Whereas Article 3 (4) of Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 1182/71 provides that where the last day of a period is a public holiday, Sunday or Saturday, the period should end with the expiry of the last hour of the following working day; whereas the application of this provision to storage contracts may not be in the interest of operators and may even result in inequalities in the way in which they are treated; whereas, therefore, a derogation should be made with regard to the determination of the last day of storage under contract;

Whereas the Management Committee for Beef and Veal has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1. Applications may be submitted between 25 October and 10 December 1982 for aid for the private storage of one of the cuts of hindquarters of adult bovine animals defined in Article 2 (2) (a) and (b).

The amounts of this aid, by tonne of product, bone in, are fixed in the Annex hereto for each of these cuts, pursuant to Article 6 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 1091/80.

If the quantities in respect of which contracts have been applied for or the market situation make it advisable, the deadline for the submission of applications may be changed.

2. The amount of aid shall be adjusted if the period of storage is extended or reduced. The supplements per month and deductions per diem for each of the cuts referred to in Article 2 (2) are fixed in the Annex hereto.

3. Subject to the provisions of this Regulation, the provisions of Regulation (EEC) No 1091/80 shall apply.

Article 2

1. Only meat produced in accordance with the provisions of Article 3 (1A) (a) to (e) of Council Directive 64/433/EEC shall be eligible for private storage aid.

2. For the purposes of this Regulation 'hindquarter' shall mean:

(a) the rear part of the half carcase cut in the manner known as 'pistola' with a minimum of five cut ribs and a maximum of eight cut ribs and with a minimum average weight of 55 kilograms; it is cut straight to the hip bone and then parallel to the fillet so that this is practically free from attached parts of the flan, the flank being excluded from storage; or

(b) the rear part of the half carcase cut in the manner known as 'straight' with a minimum of three ribs and a maximum of five ribs and with an average minimum weight of 55 kilograms.

Article 3

1. The minimum quantity per contract shall be 20 tonnes expressed as bone-in meat.

2. The contract may only cover unboned meat of one of the cuts referred to in Article 2 (2).

3. Placing in storage must be carried out within 28 days of the date of conclusion of the contract.

Article 4

1. The contractor may, before placing into store, cut or bone all or part of the products referred to in Article 2 (2), provided that only the quantity for which the contract has been concluded is employed and that all the meat resulting from such operations is placed in store.

2. If the quantity stored unboned, or, if cut or boned, the quantity of unboned meat employed, is less than the quantity for which the contract was concluded and:

(a) not less than 90 % of that quantity, the amount of aid referred to in the second subparagraph of Article 1 (1) shall be reduced proportionally;

(b) less than 90 % of that quantity, private storage aid shall not be paid.

3. In case of boning:

(a) if the quantity placed in a store does not exceed 69 kilograms of boned meat per 100 kilograms of unboned meat employed, private storage aid shall not be payable;

(b) if the quantity placed in store exceeds 69 but is lower than 77 kilograms of boned meat per 100 kilograms of unboned meat employed, the aid referred to in the second subparagraph of Article 1 (1) shall be reduced proportionally.

4. No aid shall be granted:

(a) for quantities placed in store unboned or, in case of cutting or boning, for quantities of unboned meat employed, in excess of the quantity for which the contract was concluded; and

(b) in case of boning, for quantities in excess of 77 kilograms of boned meat per 100 kilograms of unboned meat employed.

Article 5

1. The period of storage shall be either five or six months, at the storer's option; the storer shall state his preference at the time of submitting the application referred to in the first subparagraph of Article 1 (1).

2. Entitlement to payment of the aid shall be established only if the meat has remained in storage throughout the storage period.

3. On the expiry of a storage period of three months, the contracting party may withdraw from store all or part of the quantity of meat under contract, subject to a minimum of 10 tonnes, provided that, within 28 days following its removal from storage:

- the meat has left the Community's territory within the meaning of Article 9 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 2730/79,

- the meat has reached its destination in the cases referred to in Article 5 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 2730/79, or

- the meat has been placed in a victualling warehouse approved pursuant to Article 26 of Regulation (EEC) No 2730/79.
