COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 2267/84

of 31 July 1984

providing for the grant of private storage aid fixed at a standard rate in advance in respect of carcases, half-carcases, hindquarters and forequarters of beef

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 serious difficulties on the market in beef owing to the extraordinary slaughterings of adult bovine animals, private storage aid should be granted in respect of such animals;

Whereas the provisions of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1091/80 (2), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2826/82 (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 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 83/90/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, foresseeable market conditions make it necessary to provide for storage periods between 9 and 12 months; whereas, in order to improve the efficiency of the scheme, provisions should be laid down enabling the applicants to benefit from an advance payment of the aid subject to a security;

Whereas, in view of the exceptional circumstances in the beef market and in order to encourage operators to make use of private storage it should be provided that, for a limited period, products under a private storage contract should be able at the same time to be placed under the system laid down in Article 5 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 565/80 of 4 March 1980 on the advance payment of export refunds in respect of agricultural products (8); whereas, in view of the contractual storage periods it is necessary to derogate from Article 11 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 798/80 of 31 March 1980 laying down general rules on the advance payment of export refunds and positive monetary compensatory amounts in respect of agricultural products (9), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1663/81 (10), as to the period during which the products may stay under the system laid down in Regulation (EEC) No 565/80;

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 (11), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 519/83 (12);

Whereas, in order for the Commission to closely monitor the effect of the private storage scheme, a Member State shall communicate the necessary information;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Beef and Veal,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1. Applications may be submitted between 20 August 1984 and 23 November 1984 for aid for the private storage of one of the cuts of adult bovine animals defined in Article 2 (2).

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.

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.

(b) if the quantity placed in store exceeds 69 kilograms 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 quantities 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.
