REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2746/75 OF THE COUNCIL OF 29 OCTOBER 1975 LAYING DOWN GENERAL RULES FOR GRANTING EXPORT REFUNDS ON CEREALS AND CRITERIA FOR FIXING THE AMOUNT OF SUCH REFUNDS

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES ,

HAVING REGARD TO THE TREATY ESTABLISHING THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY ;

HAVING REGARD TO COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 ( 1 ) OF 29 OCTOBER 1975 ON THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS , AND IN PARTICULAR ARTICLE 16 ( 5 ) THEREOF ;

HAVING REGARD TO THE PROPOSAL FROM THE COMMISSION ;

WHEREAS EXPORT REFUNDS ON PRODUCTS SUBJECT TO THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS MUST BE FIXED IN ACCORDANCE WITH CERTAIN CRITERIA WHICH WOULD MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO COVER THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN QUOTATIONS AND PRICES FOR THOSE PRODUCTS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY AND ON THE WORLD MARKET , WHILE RESPECTING THE GENERAL AIMS OF THE COMMON ORGANIZATION ; WHEREAS TO THIS END THE SUPPLY SITUATION AND PRICES FOR CEREALS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY AND THE PRICE SITUATION ON THE WORLD MARKET FOR CEREALS AND CEREAL PRODUCTS MUST BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT ;

WHEREAS , IN VIEW OF THE CONSIDERABLE FLUCTUATIONS IN QUOTATIONS FOR CEREALS ON THE WORLD MARKET OVER PERIODS OF TIME AND THE DISPARITY BETWEEN THE PRICES AT WHICH CEREALS ARE OFFERED BY VARIOUS COUNTRIES ON THAT MARKET , A REFUND SHOULD BE FIXED WHICH , FOR THE PURPOSE OF COVERING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WORLD PRICES AND PRICES RULING WITHIN THE COMMUNITY , PARTICULARLY IN VIEW OF COSTS INCURRED IN PLACING THESE PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET , WOULD TAKE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REPRESENTATIVE PRICES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY AND THE MOST FAVOURABLE QUOTATIONS ON THE WORLD MARKET INTO ACCOUNT ;

WHEREAS TO ENABLE FLOUR , GROATS AND MEAL TO BE EXPORTED , THE PRICES AND QUANTITIES OF CEREALS USED IN THE MANUFACTURE OF THESE PRODUCTS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY , THE VALUE OF BY-PRODUCTS AND THE POSSIBILITIES AND CONDITIONS FOR THE SALE OF THESE PRODUCTS ON THE WORLD MARKET SHOULD BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT WHEN THE AMOUNT OF THE REFUND IS BEING FIXED ;

WHEREAS THE SECOND SUBPARAGRAPH OF ARTICLE 16 ( 4 ) OF REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 PROVIDES FOR THE ADVANCE FIXING OF EXPORT REFUNDS ON FLOUR , GROATS AND MEAL ; WHEREAS , IN VIEW OF THE EXISTENCE OF A FUTURE MARKET IN INTERNATIONAL TRADE IN THESE PRODUCTS , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE ADVANCE FIXING OF THE REFUND IN RESPECT OF EXPORTS TO BE EFFECTED AT A LATER DATE ;

WHEREAS PROVISION MUST BE MADE FOR VARYING THE AMOUNT OF THE REFUND ACCORDING TO THE DESTINATION OF THE PRODUCTS , SINCE MARKETS IN THE COUNTRIES OF DESTINATION ARE AT VARYING DISTANCES FROM COMMUNITY MARKETS AND SPECIAL CONDITIONS APPLY TO IMPORTS IN CERTAIN COUNTRIES OF DESTINATIONS ;

WHEREAS IT IS IMPORTANT IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS , AND PARTICULARLY IN PERIODS OF UNCERTAINTY OR OF LARGE PRICE FLUCTUATIONS ON THE WORLD MARKETS , TO ENSURE MORE PRECISE MANAGEMENT OF EXPORTS ; WHEREAS THE FIXING OF THE REFUND BY MEANS OF THE TENDERING PROCEDURE SEEMS TO BE A SUITABLE METHOD FOR ATTAINING THIS OBJECTIVE ;

WHEREAS TO AVOID DISTORTIONS OF COMPETITION BETWEEN INDIVIDUAL COMMUNITY TRADERS , THE ADMINISTRATIVE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH THEY OPERATE MUST BE IDENTICAL THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY ;

WHEREAS TO ENSURE COMMUNITY TRADERS SUFFICIENT STABILITY IN THE AMOUNT OF THE REFUND , THE PERIOD FOR WHICH THE AMOUNTS MAY REMAIN UNCHANGED SHOULD BE FIXED SUBJECT TO ANY ALTERATIONS WHICH MAY BE MADE IN THE INTERVENING PERIOD PURSUANT TO THE SECOND SENTENCE OF THE FOURTH SUBPARAGRAPH OF ARTICLE 16 ( 2 ) OF REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 ;

WHEREAS THERE DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE ANY JUSTIFICATION FOR GRANTING A REFUND ON CEREALS IMPORTED FROM THIRD COUNTRIES AND RE-EXPORTED TO THIRD COUNTRIES ; WHEREAS THE REIMBURSEMENT , UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS , OF THE LEVY COLLECTED ON IMPORTATION IS SUFFICIENT TO ALLOW THESE CEREALS TO BE PLACED ON THE WORLD MARKET AGAIN ,
