COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2016/826

of 25 May 2016

closing intervention buying-in of skimmed milk powder at fixed price for the intervention period ending 30 September 2016 and opening the tendering procedure for buying-in

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 922/72, (EEC) No 234/79, (EC) No 1037/2001 and (EC) No 1234/2007 (1),

Having regard to Council Regulation (EU) No 1370/2013 of 16 December 2013 determining measures on fixing certain aids and refunds related to the common organisation of the markets in agricultural products (2), and in particular Article 3(6) thereof,

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EU) No 1272/2009 of 11 December 2009 laying down common detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 as regards buying-in and selling of agricultural products under public intervention (3), and in particular Article 14 and Article 16(2)(a),

Whereas:

(1)

Pursuant to Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/1549 (4), public intervention of skimmed milk powder is available until 30 September 2016.

(2)

On the basis of the notifications submitted by Member States on 25 May 2016 in accordance with Article 13(1) and (3) of Regulation (EU) No 1272/2009, it appears that the total quantity of skimmed milk powder offered for intervention at fixed price since 1 January 2016 has exceeded the limit of 218 000 tonnes fixed in Article 3(1)(c) of Regulation (EU) No 1370/2013. Therefore, the intervention buying-in of skimmed milk powder at fixed price should be closed for the intervention period ending 30 September 2016, an allocation coefficient should be fixed for the quantities offered to the intervention agencies of the Member States on 24 May 2016 and the offers received by the intervention agencies of the Member States on and after 25 May 2016 should be rejected.

(3)

In accordance with Article 28(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1272/2009, the skimmed milk powder offered for intervention has to be put in bags of a net weight of 25 kilograms net. Therefore, offered quantities of skimmed milk powder which have been affected by an allocation coefficient should be rounded down to the closest multiple of 25 kg.

(4)

In accordance with Article 3(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1370/2013 a tendering procedure for skimmed milk powder is to be opened to determine the maximum buying-in price.

(5)

Section III of Chapter I of Title II of Regulation (EU) No 1272/2009 lays down the rules to be followed when the Commission opens the intervention buying-in of products referred to in Article 11 of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 by a tendering procedure.

(6)

According to Article 16(3)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 1272/2009 the periods for the submission of tenders should be fixed.

(7)

In accordance with Article 18(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1272/2009 the time limit for the intervention agencies to notify all admissible tenders to the Commission should be set.

(8)

In the interests of efficient administration, Member States should use, for the notifications to the Commission, the information systems in accordance with Commission Regulation (EC) No 792/2009 (5).

(9)

Since intervention agencies have to notify offerers swiftly following the publication of this Regulation of the closing of the intervention buying-in at fixed price and of the allocation coefficient, this Regulation should enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Closing of the intervention buying-in at fixed price

1.   The intervention buying-in of skimmed milk powder at fixed price is closed for the intervention period ending on 30 September 2016.

The total quantity of the offers of skimmed milk powder for intervention which were received from each offerer by the intervention agencies of the Member States on 24 May 2016 shall be accepted after being multiplied by an allocation coefficient of 10,4707 %, and rounded down to the closest multiple of 25 kg.

2.   Offers at fixed price received by the intervention agencies of the Member States on and after 25 May 2016 until 30 September 2016 shall be rejected.

Article 2

Opening of the tendering procedure

The intervention buying-in by a tendering procedure of skimmed milk powder, in excess of the limit set out in Article 3(1)(c) of Regulation (EU) No 1370/2013, is open until 30 September 2016, under the conditions provided for in Section III of Chapter I of Title II of Regulation (EU) No 1272/2009 and in this Regulation.

Article 3

By way of derogation from Article 18(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1272/2009, where a Member State does not notify the Commission of an admissible tender within the time limits referred to in the first paragraph, it shall be deemed to have notified the Commission of a nil return.
