HAVING REGARD TO THE PROPOSAL FROM THE COMMISSION ;

WHEREAS , ON ACCOUNT OF THE SPECIAL SITUATION ON THE MARKET IN STARCHES AND , IN PARTICULAR , THE NEED FOR THE STARCH INDUSTRY TO ENSURE THAT ITS PRICES ARE COMPETITIVE WITH THOSE OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS , REGULATIONS ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 AND NO 359/67/EEC PROVIDED FOR THE GRANTING OF A PRODUCTION REFUND , IN ORDER THAT THE STARCH INDUSTRY MIGHT OBTAIN THE BASIC PRODUCTS IT REQUIRES AT A LOWER PRICE THAN THAT WHICH WOULD RESULT FROM THE APPLICATION OF THE RULES OF THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKETS IN THE PRODUCTS IN QUESTION ;

WHEREAS AN ASSESSMENT OF THE SITUATION RESULTING FROM THE LEVEL OF COMMON PRICES AND FROM THE COMPETITION BETWEEN , ON THE ONE HAND MAIZE STARCH , RICE STARCH AND POTATO STARCH AND ON THE OTHER , THE SUBSTITUTE CHEMICAL PRODUCTS , INDICATES THAT THE PRODUCTION REFUND ON MAIZE USED IN STARCH MANUFACTURE SHOULD BE FIXED AT 10.00 UNITS OF ACCOUNT PER METRIC TON ; WHEREAS A PRODUCTION REFUND OF 16.30 UNITS OF ACCOUNT PER METRIC TON OF COMMON WHEAT AND OF 12.30 UNITS OF ACCOUNT PER METRIC TON OF BROKEN RICE USED FOR STARCH MANUFACTURE WOULD BE AIMED AT ENSURING A BALANCE BETWEEN THE USE OF THESE PRODUCTS AND THE USE OF MAIZE ; WHEREAS , HOWEVER , THE LEVEL OF THE ABOVEMENTIONED REFUNDS SHOULD BE GUARANTEED ONLY IN SO FAR AS THE PRICE OF THE BASIC PRODUCTS ON THE WORLD MARKET IS SITUATED BELOW THE THRESHOLD PRICE FOR EACH OF THESE PRODUCTS ;

WHEREAS ON ACCOUNT OF THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE PRODUCTION PRICES OF THE RAW MATERIALS USED IN THE MANUFACTURE OF CEREAL AND POTATO STARCHES AND OF THE INTERCHANGEABILITY OF THESE TWO PRODUCTS , A BALANCED RELATIONSHIP SHOULD BE MAINTAINED BETWEEN THE PRICES OF THESE PRODUCTS ; WHEREAS THE REFUND GRANTED SHOULD THEREFORE BE THE SAME FOR BOTH OF THESE PRODUCTS ; WHEREAS , HOWEVER , THE REFUND PAID TO PRODUCERS OF POTATO STARCH SHOULD BE SUCH AS TO ASSURE COMMUNITY POTATO PRODUCERS OF A PRICE ALLOWING THEM A FAIR INCOME , WHILE THE MARKET CONDITIONS FOR CEREALS USED IN STARCH MANUFACTURE AND THE COMMON MARKET ORGANIZATIONS GOVERNING THEM ARE SUCH AS TO ENSURE THAT THEIR PRICE IS IN FACT HELD AT THE LEVEL OF THE THRESHOLD PRICE ; WHEREAS STEPS SHOULD THEREFORE BE TAKEN TO ENSURE THAT POTATO PRODUCERS ULTIMATELY BENEFIT FROM THE REFUND PAID TO PRODUCERS OF POTATO STARCH ;

WHEREAS THE PRODUCTION REFUND TO BE GRANTED ON GROATS AND MEAL FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF GLUCOSE BY THE PROCESS KNOWN AS DIRECT HYDROLYSIS SHOULD BE FIXED AT SUCH A LEVEL AS TO ACHIEVE A BALANCE BETWEEN GLUCOSE MANUFACTURED BY SUCH A PROCESS AND GLUCOSE MANUFACTURED FROM STARCH ;

WHEREAS , IN THE EVENT OF APPRECIABLE AND PERSISTENT VARIATIONS IN THE WORLD PRICE OF MAIZE , COMMON WHEAT AND BROKEN RICE , THESE REFUNDS SHOULD BE LIMITED , SO LONG AS WORLD MARKET PRICES REMAIN HIGH , IN SUCH A WAY AS TO AVOID DISTURBANCES IN THE COMMUNITY MARKET AND TO PREVENT THE FINANCIAL BURDEN OF PRODUCTION REFUNDS FROM BECOMING EXCESSIVE ;

WHEREAS THE ABOVEMENTIONED MEASURES SHOULD NOT DISTURB THE MARKETS IN THIRD COUNTRIES ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , IN THE EVENT OF AN APPRECIABLE AND PERSISTENT INCREASE IN PRICES ON THE SAID MARKETS , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR COMPENSATORY MEASURES CONSISTING OF THE CHARGING OF A LEVY ON EXPORTED PRODUCTS WITH A VIEW TO REDUCING THE ADVANTAGES GRANTED TO COMMUNITY MANUFACTURERS TO AN APPROPRIATE LEVEL ;

WHEREAS UNDER ARTICLE 57 OF THE ACT OF ACCESSION ( 4 ) IN FIXING THE LEVEL OF THE VARIOUS ELEMENTS OF THE PRICE AND INTERVENTION SYSTEM , EXCEPT FOR INTERVENTION PRICES , ACCOUNT IS TO BE TAKEN FOR THE NEW MEMBER STATES , TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY FOR THE PROPER FUNCTIONING OF COMMUNITY RULES , OF THE DIFFERENCE IN PRICES EXPRESSED BY THE COMPENSATORY AMOUNT ; WHEREAS , HOWEVER , FOR THE APPLICATION OF THIS PROVISION , THE COMPENSATORY AMOUNT MAY BE REDUCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH ARTICLE 7 OF COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2757/75 ( 5 ) OF 29 OCTOBER 1975 LAYING DOWN GENERAL RULES FOR THE SYSTEM OF ACCESSION COMPENSATORY AMOUNTS FOR CEREALS , AND ARTICLE 5 OF COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 243/73 ( 6 ) OF 31 JANUARY 1973 LAYING DOWN GENERAL RULES FOR THE SYSTEM OF COMPENSATORY AMOUNTS FOR RICE AND FIXING THESE AMOUNTS FOR CERTAIN PRODUCTS , AS LAST AMENDED BY REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 1999/74 ( 7 ) ,
