COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2018/1146

of 7 June 2018

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/892 laying down rules for the application of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to the fruit and vegetables and processed fruit and vegetables sectors and Regulation (EC) No 606/2009 laying down certain detailed rules for implementing Council Regulation (EC) No 479/2008 as regards the categories of grapevine products, oenological practices and the applicable restrictions

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), and in particular Article 38, Article 182(1) and (4) and Article 223 thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on the financing, management and monitoring of the common agriculture policy and repealing Council Regulations (EEC) No 352/78, (EC) No 165/94, (EC) No 2799/98, (EC) No 814/2000, (EC) No 1290/2005 and (EC) No 485/2008 (2), and in particular Article 62(2) thereof

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/892 (3) establishes rules for the application of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 with regard to the fruit and vegetables and processed fruit and vegetables sectors. Regulation (EU) 2017/2393 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4) has amended Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 in particular as regards the aid in the fruit and vegetables sector. Therefore, Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/892 should reflect the amendments to the relevant provisions of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013.

(2)

Implementing rules regarding national financial assistance in the fruit and vegetables sector should be updated.

(3)

Details for implementation of the increase of the limit of Union financial assistance from 50 % to 60 % in Member States where producer organisations market less than 20 % of fruit and vegetables production referred to in Article 34(3)(f) of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 and in particular the details of the calculation of the degree of organisation of producers in a Member State should be laid down to ensure that the applications for aid and the verification of the conditions for the increase are implemented coherently throughout the Union.

(4)

It should also be clarified that promotion of the products as a crisis measure includes diversifying and consolidating the fruit and vegetables markets.

(5)

Provisions relating to annual reports on producer organisations, associations of producers organisations, including transnational organisations, and producer groups, and on operational funds, operational programmes and recognition plans should be simplified. These reports should enable the Commission to adequately monitor the sector.

(6)

Conditions for the application of the import duties referred to in Article 182 of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 which may apply to imports of certain fruit and vegetables should be clarified.

(7)

Where an association of producer organisations or transnational association of producer organisation implements an operational programme Member States should ensure that double funding is avoided, and that appropriate checks are carried out for the actions implemented at the level of the association of producer organisations as well as at the level of its producer organisation members, as required under Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013.

(8)

Annexes I and II to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/892 should be updated to simplify Part A of the Annual Report of Member States, common performance indicators and to remove the common baseline indicators.

(9)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/892 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(10)

Point 3 of Section A of Part I of Annex VIII of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 sets out an obligation for Member States to notify the Commission of any increase in the limits laid down in point 2 of that section. Commission Regulation (EC) No 606/2009 (5) should be amended to provide for the details concerning the submission of this information by Member States to the Commission.

(11)

This Regulation should apply from the same day as Regulation (EU) 2017/2393. However, provisions that concern reporting should apply from 1 January 2019 to give Member States and the economic operators concerned sufficient time to implement the amendments set out in this Regulation. The flexibility for producer organisations provided for by the new measures and actions should apply brought by the transitional provisions must be implemented together with retroactivity in order to coincide with the application date of Regulation (EU) 2017/2393 so that the application of the amendments in Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 is respected.

(12)

The conditions for the application of the new measures and actions eligible for Union financial assistance set out in Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 should apply from the date of application of the amendments to that Regulation introduced by Regulation (EU) 2017/2393 to ensure market stability for producer organisations and their members, in particular given that those measures concern mainly crisis management and prevention and to enable them to fully benefit from the new measures. To safeguard legitimate expectations, producer organisations may choose to continue their operational programmes under the previous legal framework or to modify their operational programmes to benefit from the new measures and actions eligible for Union financial assistance as set out in Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013.

(13)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for the Common Organisation of the Agricultural Markets,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

MONITORING OF OPERATIONAL PROGRAMMES

The indicators related to actions undertaken by recognised producer organisations, associations of producer organisations, transnational organisations and producer groups under an operational programme/recognition plan does not necessarily capture all the factors that may intervene and affect the outputs, results and impact of an operational programme/recognition plan. In this context, the information provided by the indicators should be interpreted in the light of quantitative and qualitative information relating to other key factors contributing to the success or failure of the programme/plan's implementation.

In case Member States use samples for the calculation of indicators, the size of the sample, its representativeness and its other constituting elements shall be communicated to the Commission services, together with the annual report.

(6)  Refers to a set of detailed obligations concerning the production methods (a) the respect of which is subject to independent inspection, and (b) that result in a final product the quality of which (i) goes significantly beyond the normal commercial standards as regards public health, plant health or environmental standards and (ii) responds to current and foreseeable market opportunities. It is proposed that the main types of “quality schemes” cover the following: (a) certified organic production; (b) protected geographical indications and protected designations of origin, (c) certified integrated production, (d) private certified product quality schemes.

(7)  Protected designations of origin/Protected Geographical Indications/Traditional Speciality Guaranteed

(8)  Each day of a promotion/communication campaign counts as one action.

(9)  “At risk of soil erosion” shall mean any sloping plot with an inclination higher than 10 %, whether or not anti-erosion measures (e.g. soil cover, crop rotation, etc.) have been taken. Where the relevant information is available, a Member State may instead use the following definition: “At risk of soil erosion” shall mean any plot with a predicted loss of soil exceeding the rate of natural soil formation, whether or not anti-erosion measures (e.g. soil cover or crop rotation) have been taken.

(10)  Actions relating to the setting up/refilling of different mutual funds count as different actions.

(11)  Market withdrawal of the same product in different periods of the year and market withdrawals of different products count as different actions. Each market withdrawal operation for a given product counts as one action.

(12)  Green-harvesting and non-harvesting of different products count as different actions. Green harvesting and non-harvesting of the same product count as one action, regardless of the number of days they take, the number of holdings participating and the number of plots or hectares concerned.
