COMMISSION DECISION

of 14 June 1989

altering the adjustment aid to the Portuguese refining industry for raw sugar imported from third countries at a reduced levy for the 1988/89 marketing year into Portugal

(Only the Portuguese text is authentic)

(89/387/EEC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1785/81 of 30 June 1981 on the common organization of the markets in the sugar sector (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1069/89 (2), and in particular the seventh indent of Article 9 (6) thereof,

Whereas Article 9 (4) (c) of Regulation (EEC) No 1785/81 provides that, during the 1988/89 to 1990/91 marketing years, adjustment aid is to be granted as an intervention measure to the refining industry for raw sugar imported into Portugal at a reduced levy pursuant to Article 303 of the Act of Accession of Spain and Portugal and refined into white sugar in Portugal; whereas that aid amounts to ECU 0,08 per 100 kilograms of sugar expressed as white sugar for quantities of such sugar thus imported and refined in Portugal; whereas the quantities of raw sugar imported at a reduced levy are those referred to in the first paragraph of Article 303 of the Act of Accession as well as the quantities lacking referred to in the third paragraph of that Article, the import of which at a reduced levy is authorized for the marketing year under consideration; whereas, as far as the 1988/89 marketing year is concerned, Commission Decisions 88/462/EEC (3) and 89/206/EEC (4) authorize such imports;

Whereas the third subparagraph of Article 9 (4) (c) of Regulation (EEC) No 1785/81 provides that the abovementioned adjustment aid may be altered for a given marketing year, in the light in particular of the amount of the storage levy fixed for that year; whereas, although sugar imported into Portugal at a reduced levy is not subject to the storage levy, in view of the quantities of such refined that levy is a determining factor for the prices as a whole on the market for white sugar and therefore for the margin of the Portuguese refineries;

Whereas the amount of the storage levy for the 1988/89 marketing year was fixed by Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1922/88 (5) at ECU 3,50 per 100 kilograms of white sugar; whereas that amount represents a reduction of ECU 0,50 per 100 kilograms of white sugar by comparison with that applicable for the 1987/88 marketing year, although the intervention prices for white sugar and for raw sugar fixed in ecus for the 1988/89 marketing year remain unaltered compared with those for the 1987/88 marketing year;

Whereas, after an examination of the price situation on the markets in Portugal and on the basis of data available to the Commission, it transpires that the reduction in that levy was actually passed on from 1 July 1988, resulting in a corresponding effect on the margins of the Portuguese refining industries, jeopardizing the balance sought through the granting of the aids in question and therefore the objectives pursued; whereas a corresponding alteration in the adjustment aid therefore appears necessary;

Whereas the measures provides for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Sugar,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The adjustment aid provided for in the second subparagraph of Article 9 (4) (c) of Regulation (EEC) No 1785/81 shall be increased to ECU 0,58 per 100 kilograms of sugar expressed as white sugar for the 1988/89 marketing year.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Portuguese Republic.

Done at Brussels, 14 June 1989.
