COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 2143/2004

of 13 December 2004

amending Regulation (EC) No 74/2004 imposing a definitive countervailing duty on imports of cotton-type bedlinen originating in India

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2026/97 of 6 October 1997 on protection against subsidised imports from countries not members of the European Community (1) (the ‘basic Regulation’),

Having regard to Article 2 of Council Regulation (EC) No 74/2004 of 13 January 2004 imposing a definitive countervailing duty on imports of cotton-type bedlinen originating in India (2),

Having regard to the proposal submitted by the Commission after consulting the Advisory Committee,

Whereas:

A.   PREVIOUS PROCEDURE

(1)

By Regulation (EC) No 74/2004, the Council imposed a definitive countervailing duty on imports into the Community of cotton-type bedlinen falling within CN codes ex 6302 21 00 (TARIC codes 6302210081, 6302210089), ex 6302 22 90 (TARIC code 6302229019), ex 6302 31 10 (TARIC code 6302311090), ex 6302 31 90 (TARIC code 6302319090) and ex 6302 32 90 (TARIC code 6302329019), originating in India. Given the large number of cooperating parties, a sample of Indian exporting producers was selected and individual duty rates ranging from 4,4 % to 10,4 % were imposed on the companies included in the sample, while other cooperating companies not included in the sample were attributed a duty rate of 7,6 %. A duty rate of 10,4 % was imposed on companies which either did not make themselves known or did not cooperate with the investigation.

(2)

Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 74/2004 stipulates that where any new exporting producer in India provides sufficient evidence to the Commission that it did not export to the Community the products described in Article 1(1) during the investigation period (1 October 2001 to 30 September 2002) (the ‘first criterion’) and it is not related to any of the exporters or producers in India which are subject to the anti-subsidy measures imposed by that Regulation (the ‘second criterion’), and it has actually exported to the Community the products concerned after the investigation period on which the measures are based, or it has entered into an irrevocable contractual obligation to export a significant quantity to the Community (the ‘third criterion’), then Article 1(3) of that Regulation can be amended by granting the new exporting producer the duty rate applicable to the cooperating companies not included in the sample, i.e. 7,6 %.

B.   NEW EXPORTERS/PRODUCERS' REQUESTS

(3)

Twenty-four Indian companies have applied not to be treated differently from the companies which cooperated in the original investigation but were not included in the sample (‘newcomer status’).

(4)

Two Indian companies requesting the newcomer status did not provide a questionnaire reply. It was therefore not possible to verify whether these companies fulfilled the criteria set out in Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 74/2004, and their request had to be rejected.

(5)

Two requests for newcomer status were received too late and therefore no conclusion could be reached on these requests by the date of adoption of this Regulation.

(6)

The remaining twenty companies replied to the questionnaire intended to verify that the companies complied with the provisions of Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 74/2004.

(7)

The evidence provided by thirteen of the abovementioned Indian exporters/producers is considered sufficient to grant these new companies the duty rate applicable to the cooperating companies not included in the sample (i.e. 7,6 %) and therefore to add these thirteen Indian companies to the list in the Annex (the ‘Annex’) of Council Regulation (EC) No 74/2004.

(8)

As far as the remaining seven Indian exporters/producers are concerned, two of them were related to companies subject to the current countervailing measures, three exported the product concerned to the Community during the original investigation period (i.e. from 1 October 2001 to 30 September 2002), one could not provide any invoice or evidence that it had actually exported to the Community the product concerned after the original investigation period or that it had entered into an irrevocable contractual obligation to export the product concerned to the Community.

(9)

Finally, it is noted that one request could not be dealt with in the present context, since the evidence provided by the applicant company needs further examination.

(10)

Under these circumstances, it was considered that for the six companies referred to in recital (8), at least one of the criteria set out in Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 74/2004 was not fulfilled. Therefore, their claim had to be rejected.

(11)

Companies for which the newcomer status was not accepted were informed of the reasons of that decision and given an opportunity to make their views known in writing.

(12)

The two companies related to companies subject to the current countervailing measures claimed in one case that their related company did not exist anymore, and in the second case that they were indeed expecting to be subject to the same duty rate as their related company.

(13)

It was considered in the first case that the fact that the related company did not exist anymore was indeed a significant element in the current procedure, and that in this case it could not be considered that the newcomer was not respecting the second criterion. It was therefore decided that this company should also be subject to the duty rate applicable to the cooperating companies not included in the sample (i.e. 7,6 %) and therefore be added to the list in the Annex.

(14)

In the second case, where the applicant company is related to a company under measures, it was found that this should not automatically deprive the company of being subject to the weighted average duty margin for cooperating companies not included in the sample. Indeed, it was examined whether both related companies, if considered together, would have been selected in the sample of exporting producers according to the selection criteria specified in recital (11) of Regulation (EC) No 74/2004. Since this appeared not to be the case, the relationship between both companies does not affect the findings of the above mentioned Regulation. On these grounds, and given the Commission’s consistent practice to consider all related companies as one entity subject to the same duty, it was decided that this company should also be subject to the duty rate applicable to the cooperating companies not included in the sample (i.e. 7,6 %) and therefore be added to the list in the Annex.

(15)

All arguments and submissions made by interested parties were analysed and duly taken into account when warranted,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

1.

Unalloyed aluminium wire with an aluminium content of 99,5 %, of a diameter of between 9 and 14 mm and a length per wire of 500 to 600 m, put up in rolls with a width of about 1,5 m and a weight of 1,5 tonnes.

The aluminium wire rolls have been partly damaged and deformed.

(See photograph A) (1)

7605 11 00

Classification is determined by the provisions of General Rules 1 and 6 for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature, Note 1(c) to Chapter 76 and by the wording of CN codes 7605 and 7605 11 00.

Classification under heading 7602 is excluded, as the conditions of Note 8(a) to Section XV are not met.

The degree of damage and deformation of the aluminium wire rolls does not alter the nature of the product, which is that of aluminium wire, given that large portions of the rolls still meet the definition in Note 1(c) to Chapter 76.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2148/2004

of 16 December 2004

concerning the permanent and provisional authorisations of certain additives and the authorisation of new uses of an additive already authorised in feedingstuffs

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 70/524/EEC of 23 November 1970 concerning additives in feedingstuffs (1), and in particular Articles 3 and 9d(1) and 9e(1) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 September 2003 on additives for use in animal nutrition (2), and in particular Article 25 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 provides for the authorisation of additives for use in animal nutrition in the European Union.

(2)

Article 25 of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 lays down the transitional measures for applications for authorisation of feed additives submitted in accordance with Directive 70/524/EEC before the date of application of that Regulation.

(3)

The applications for authorisation of additives listed in the annexes to this Regulation were submitted before the date of application of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003.

(4)

Initial comments by Member States on these applications were issued under Article 4(4) of Directive 70/524/EEC have been forwarded to the Commission before the date of application of Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003. Such applications therefore shall continue to be treated in accordance with Article 4 of Directive 70/524/EEC.

(5)

The use of the product, clinoptilolite of volcanic origin, as feed additive belonging to the category of ‘binders, anti-caking agents and coagulants’, was provisionally authorised, for the first time, for pigs, rabbits and poultry by Commission Regulation (EC) No 1245/1999 (3).

(6)

New data were submitted in support of the application for authorisation without a time limit. The assessment shows that the conditions laid down in Directive 70/524/EEC for such authorisation have been satisfied.

(7)

Accordingly, the use of this product, clinoptilolite of volcanic origin, should be authorised without a time limit, under certain conditions set out in Annex I to this Regulation.

(8)

The use of the micro-organism preparation of Bacillus licheniformis (DSM 5749) and Bacillus subtilis (DSM 5750) was provisionally authorised for pigs for fattening and without a time limit for piglets by Commission Regulation (EC) No 2437/2000 (4).

(9)

New data were submitted in support of the application for authorisation without a time limit of that micro-organism preparation for pigs for fattening. The assessment shows that the conditions laid down in Directive 70/524/EEC for such authorisation are satisfied. New data were submitted in support of the application to modify the maximum age of that micro-organism preparation for piglets. The assessment shows that the conditions for such modification of the authorisation are satisfied.

(10)

The use of the micro-organism preparation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (NCYC Sc 47) was provisionally authorised, for the first time, for piglets by Commission Regulation (EC) No 1436/98 (5).

(11)

The use of the micro-organism preparation of Enterococcus faecium (DSM 7134) and Lactobacillus rhamnosus (DSM 7133) was provisionally authorised, for the first time, for piglets by Commission Regulation (EC) No 2690/99 (6).

(12)

New data were submitted in support of the application for authorisation without a time limit of those two micro-organism preparations. The assessment shows that the conditions laid down in Directive 70/524/EEC for such authorisation are satisfied.

(13)

Accordingly, the use of those three micro-organism preparations, as specified in Annex II, should be authorised without a time limit.

(14)

Data were submitted in support of an application to obtain an authorisation for a new additive belonging to the group micro-organisms, Kluyveromyces marxianus variety lactisK1 (BCCM/MUCL 39434) for dairy cows.

(15)

The assessment of the application for authorisation submitted, in respect of the micro-organism preparation specified in Annex III to this Regulation, shows that the conditions referred to in Article 9e(1) of Directive 70/524/EEC are satisfied.

(16)

The Scientific Committee on Animal Nutrition (SCAN) has delivered an opinion on the use of this additive in feedingstuffs ‘Opinion on the use of certain micro-organisms as additives in feedingstuffs’ on 25 April 2003, which concludes that this additive does not present a risk to animal health, human health or the environment, under the conditions set out in Annex III to this Regulation.

(17)

The use of the enzyme preparation of endo-1,3(4)-beta-glucanase produced by Trichoderma longibrachiatum (CNCM MA 6-10 W) was provisionally authorised for the first time for chickens for fattening by Commission Regulation (EC) No 1436/98.

(18)

The use of the enzyme preparation of endo-1,4-beta-glucanase produced by Trichoderma longibrachiatum (IMI SD 142) was provisionally authorised for the first time for chickens for fattening, by Regulation (EC) No 1436/98 (liquid form) and by Commission Regulation (EC) No 1353/2000 (7) (solid form).

(19)

The use of the enzyme preparation of endo-1,4-beta-xylanase produced by Trichoderma longibrachiatum (IMI SD 135) was provisionally authorised, for the first time, for chickens for fattening, by Regulation (EC) No 1436/98 (liquid form) and by Regulation (EC) No 1353/2000 (solid form).

(20)

New data were submitted in support of the application for authorisation without a time limit of those three enzyme preparations. The assessment shows that the conditions laid down in Article 3a of Directive 70/524/EEC for such authorisation are satisfied.

(21)

Accordingly, the use of those three enzyme preparations as specified in Annex IV, should be authorised without a time limit.

(22)

The use of the enzyme preparation of endo-1,3(4)-beta-glucanase and endo-1,4-beta-xylanase produced by Penicillium funiculosum (IMI SD 101) is authorised without a time limit for chickens for fattening by Commission Regulation (EC) No 1259/2004 (8). The use of this preparation was provisionally authorised for turkeys for fattening, for laying hens and for pigs for fattening by Commission Regulation (EC) No 418/2001 (9).

(23)

New data were submitted in support of an application to extend the authorisation of the use of this enzyme preparation to piglets and ducks for fattening.

(24)

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has delivered an opinion on the use of this preparation which concludes that this preparation does not present a risk for these additional animal categories, under the conditions set out in Annex V to this Regulation.

(25)

The assessment shows that the conditions laid down in Article 9e(1) of Directive 70/524/EEC for an authorisation of such preparation have been satisfied.

(26)

Accordingly, the use of this enzyme preparation as specified in Annex V, should be provisionally authorised for four years.

(27)

The assessment of these applications shows that certain procedures should be required to protect workers from exposure to the additives set out in the Annexes. Such protection should be assured by the application of Council Directive 89/391/EEC of 12 June 1989 on the introduction of measures to encourage improvements in the safety and health of workers at work (10).

(28)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2153/2004

of 16 December 2004

fixing the rates of the refunds applicable to certain milk products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 of 15 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in milk and milk products (1), and in particular Article 31(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 31(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 provides that the difference between prices in international trade for the products listed in Article 1(a), (b), (c), (d), (e) and (g) of that Regulation and prices within the Community may be covered by an export refund.

(2)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000 of 13 July 2000 laying down common implementing rules for granting export refunds on certain agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, and criteria for fixing the amount of such refunds (2), specifies the products for which a rate of refund should be fixed, to be applied where these products are exported in the form of goods listed in Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999.

(3)

In accordance with the first subparagraph of Article 4(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000, the rate of the refund per 100 kg for each of the basic products in question must be fixed for each month.

(4)

However in the case of certain milk products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, there is a danger that, if high refund rates are fixed in advance, the commitments entered into in relation to those refunds may be jeopardised. In order to avert that danger, it is therefore necessary to take appropriate precautionary measures, but without precluding the conclusion of long-term contracts. The fixing of specific refund rates for the advance fixing of refunds in respect of those products should enable those two objectives to be met.

(5)

Article 4(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000 provides that, when the rate of the refund is being fixed, account should be taken, where necessary, of production refunds, aids or other measures having equivalent effect applicable in all Member States in accordance with the Regulation on the common organisation of the market in the product in question to the basic products listed in Annex A to Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000 or to assimilated products.

(6)

Article 12(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 provides for the payment of aid for Community-produced skimmed milk processed into casein if such milk and the casein manufactured from it fulfil certain conditions.

(7)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 2571/97 of 15 December 1997 on the sale of butter at reduced prices and the granting of aid for cream, butter and concentrated butter for use in the manufacture of pastry products, ice-cream and other foodstuffs (3), lays down that butter and cream at reduced prices should be made available to industries which manufacture certain goods.

(8)

In accordance with Council Regulation (EC) No 1676/2004 of 24 September 2004 adopting autonomous and transitional measures concerning the importation of certain processed agricultural products originating in Bulgaria and the exportation of certain processed agricultural products to Bulgaria (4) with effect from 1 October 2004, processed agricultural products not listed in Annex I to the Treaty which are exported to Bulgaria are not eligible for export refunds.

(9)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Milk and Milk Products,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The rates of the refunds applicable to the basic products listed in Annex A to Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000 and in Article 1 of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999, and exported in the form of goods listed in Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 shall be fixed as set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

By way of derogation from Article 1 and with effect from 1 October 2004, the rates set out in the Annex are not applicable to goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty when exported to Bulgaria.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on 17 December 2004.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2154/2004

of 16 December 2004

fixing the export refunds on milk and milk products

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in milk and milk products (1), and in particular Article 31(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 31 of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 provides that the difference between prices in international trade for the products listed in Article 1 of that Regulation and prices for those products within the Community may be covered by an export refund within the limits resulting from agreements concluded in accordance with Article 300 of the Treaty.

(2)

Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 provides that when the refunds on the products listed in Article 1 of the abovementioned Regulation, exported in the natural state, are being fixed, account must be taken of:

the existing situation and the future trend with regard to prices and availabilities of milk and milk products on the Community market and prices for milk and milk products in international trade,

marketing costs and the most favourable transport charges from Community markets to ports or other points of export in the Community, as well as costs incurred in placing the goods on the market of the country of destination,

the aims of the common organisation of the market in milk and milk products which are to ensure equilibrium and the natural development of prices and trade on this market,

the limits resulting from agreements concluded in accordance with Article 300 of the Treaty, and

the need to avoid disturbances on the Community market, and

the economic aspect of the proposed exports.

(3)

Article 31(5) of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 provides that when prices within the Community are being determined account should be taken of the ruling prices which are most favourable for exportation, and that when prices in international trade are being determined particular account should be taken of:

(a)

prices ruling on third-country markets;

(b)

the most favourable prices in third countries of destination for third-country imports;

(c)

producer prices recorded in exporting third countries, account being taken, where appropriate, of subsidies granted by those countries; and

(d)

free-at-Community-frontier offer prices.

(4)

Article 31(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 provides that the world market situation or the specific requirements of certain markets may make it necessary to vary the refund on the products listed in Article 1 of the abovementioned Regulation according to destination.

(5)

Article 31(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 provides that the list of products on which export refunds are granted and the amount of such refunds should be fixed at least once every four weeks; the amount of the refund may, however, remain at the same level for more than four weeks.

(6)

In accordance with Article 16 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 174/1999 of 26 January 1999 on specific detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EC) No 804/68 as regards export licences and export refunds on milk and milk products (2), the refund granted for milk products containing added sugar is equal to the sum of the two components; one is intended to take account of the quantity of milk products and is calculated by multiplying the basic amount by the milk products content in the product concerned; the other is intended to take account of the quantity of added sucrose and is calculated by multiplying the sucrose content of the entire product by the basic amount of the refund valid on the day of exportation for the products listed in Article 1(1)(d) of Council Regulation (EC) No 1260/2001 of 19 June 2001 on the common organisation of the markets in the sugar sector (3), however, this second component is applied only if the added sucrose has been produced using sugar beet or cane harvested in the Community.

(7)

Commission Regulation (EEC) No 896/84 (4) laid down additional provisions concerning the granting of refunds on the change from one milk year to another; those provisions provide for the possibility of varying refunds according to the date of manufacture of the products.

(8)

For the calculation of the refund for processed cheese provision must be made where casein or caseinates are added for that quantity not to be taken into account.

(9)

It follows from applying the rules set out above to the present situation on the market in milk and in particular to quotations or prices for milk products within the Community and on the world market that the refund should be as set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

(10)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Milk and Milk Products,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The export refunds referred to in Article 31 of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 on products exported in the natural state shall be as set out in the Annex.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on 17 December 2004.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2157/2004

of 16 December 2004

on import licences in respect of beef and veal products originating in Botswana, Kenya, Madagascar, Swaziland, Zimbabwe and Namibia

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1254/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in beef and veal (1),

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2286/2002 of 10 December 2002 on the arrangements applicable to agricultural products and goods resulting from the processing of agricultural products originating in the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP States) and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1706/98 (2),

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EC) No 2247/2003 of 19 December 2003 laying down detailed rules for the application in the beef and veal sector of Council Regulation (EC) No 2286/2002 on the arrangements applicable to agricultural products and certain goods resulting from the processing of agricultural products originating in the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP States) (3), and in particular Article 5 thereof,

(4)

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) Νo 2158/2004

of 16 December 2004

fixing the export refunds on products processed from cereals and rice

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 of 29 September 2003 on the common organisation of the market in cereals (1), and in particular Article 13(3) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 3072/95 of 22 December 1995 on the common organisation of the market in rice (2), and in particular Article 13(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 13 of Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 and Article 13 of Regulation (EC) No 3072/95 provide that the difference between quotations or prices on the world market for the products listed in Article 1 of those Regulations and prices for those products within the Community may be covered by an export refund.

(2)

Article 13 of Regulation (EC) No 3072/95 provides that when refunds are being fixed account must be taken of the existing situation and the future trend with regard to prices and availabilities of cereals, rice and broken rice on the Community market on the one hand and prices for cereals, rice, broken rice and cereal products on the world market on the other. The same Articles provide that it is also important to ensure equilibrium and the natural development of prices and trade on the markets in cereals and rice and, furthermore, to take into account the economic aspect of the proposed exports, and the need to avoid disturbances on the Community market.

(3)

Article 4 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1518/95 (3) on the import and export system for products processed from cereals and from rice defines the specific criteria to be taken into account when the refund on these products is being calculated.

(4)

The refund to be granted in respect of certain processed products should be graduated on the basis of the ash, crude fibre, tegument, protein, fat and starch content of the individual product concerned, this content being a particularly good indicator of the quantity of basic product actually incorporated in the processed product.

(5)

There is no need at present to fix an export refund for manioc, other tropical roots and tubers or flours obtained therefrom, given the economic aspect of potential exports and in particular the nature and origin of these products. For certain products processed from cereals, the insignificance of Community participation in world trade makes it unnecessary to fix an export refund at the present time.

(6)

The world market situation or the specific requirements of certain markets may make it necessary to vary the refund for certain products according to destination.

(7)

The refund must be fixed once a month. It may be altered in the intervening period.

(8)

Certain processed maize products may undergo a heat treatment following which a refund might be granted that does not correspond to the quality of the product; whereas it should therefore be specified that on these products, containing pregelatinised starch, no export refund is to be granted.

(9)

The Management Committee for Cereals has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2159/2004

of 16 December 2004

fixing the export refunds on cereal-based compound feedingstuffs

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 of 29 september 2003 on the common organisation of the market in cereals (1), and in particular Article 13(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 13 of Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 provides that the difference between quotations or prices on the world market for the products listed in Article 1 of that Regulation and prices for those products within the Community may be covered by an export refund.

(2)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1517/95 of 29 June 1995 laying down detailed rules for the application of Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 as regards the arrangements for the export and import of compound feedingstuffs based on cereals and amending Regulation (EC) No 1162/95 laying down special detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences for cereals and rice (2) in Article 2 lays down general rules for fixing the amount of such refunds.

(3)

That calculation must also take account of the cereal products content. In the interest of simplification, the refund should be paid in respect of two categories of ‘cereal products’, namely for maize, the most commonly used cereal in exported compound feeds and maize products, and for ‘other cereals’, these being eligible cereal products excluding maize and maize products. A refund should be granted in respect of the quantity of cereal products present in the compound feedingstuff.

(4)

Furthermore, the amount of the refund must also take into account the possibilities and conditions for the sale of those products on the world market, the need to avoid disturbances on the Community market and the economic aspect of the export.

(5)

The current situation on the cereals market and, in particular, the supply prospects mean that the export refunds should be abolished.

(6)

The Management Committee for Cereals has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The export refunds on the compound feedingstuffs covered by Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 and subject to Regulation (EC) No 1517/95 are hereby fixed as shown in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on 17 December 2004.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2161/2004

of 16 December 2004

fixing the rates of the refunds applicable to certain cereal and rice products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 of 29 September 2003 on the common organisation of the market in cereals (1), and in particular Article 13(3) thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003 of 29 September 2003 on the common organisation of the market in rice (2), and in particular Article 14(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 13(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 and Article 14(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003 provide that the difference between quotations of prices on the world market for the products listed in Article 1 of each of those Regulations and the prices within the Community may be covered by an export refund.

(2)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000 of 13 July 2000 laying down common implementing rules for granting export refunds on certain agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, and the criteria for fixing the amount of such refunds (3), specifies the products for which a rate of refund should be fixed, to be applied where these products are exported in the form of goods listed in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 or in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003 as appropriate.

(3)

In accordance with the first subparagraph of Article 4(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000, the rate of the refund per 100 kilograms for each of the basic products in question must be fixed for each month.

(4)

The commitments entered into with regard to refunds which may be granted for the export of agricultural products contained in goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty may be jeopardised by the fixing in advance of high refund rates. It is therefore necessary to take precautionary measures in such situations without, however, preventing the conclusion of long-term contracts. The fixing of a specific refund rate for the advance fixing of refunds is a measure which enables these various objectives to be met.

(5)

Taking into account the settlement between the European Community and the United States of America on Community exports of pasta products to the United States, approved by Council Decision 87/482/EEC (4), it is necessary to differentiate the refund on goods falling within CN codes 1902 11 00 and 1902 19 according to their destination.

(6)

Pursuant to Article 4(3) and (5) of Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000, a reduced rate of export refund has to be fixed, taking account of the amount of the production refund applicable, pursuant to Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1722/93 (5), for the basic product in question, used during the assumed period of manufacture of the goods.

(7)

Spirituous beverages are considered less sensitive to the price of the cereals used in their manufacture. However, Protocol 19 to the Act of Accession of the United Kingdom, Ireland and Denmark provides that the necessary measures must be decided to facilitate the use of Community cereals in the manufacture of spirituous beverages obtained from cereals. Accordingly, it is necessary to adapt the refund rate applying to cereals exported in the form of spirituous beverages.

(8)

In accordance with Council Regulation (EC) No 1676/2004 of 24 September 2004 adopting autonomous and transitional measures concerning the importation of certain processed agricultural products originating in Bulgaria and the exportation of certain processed agricultural products to Bulgaria (6) with the effect from 1 October 2004, processed agricultural products not listed in Annex I to the Treaty which are exported to Bulgaria are not eligible for the export refunds.

(9)

The Management Committee for Cereals has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The rates of the refunds applicable to the basic products listed in Annex A to Regulation (EC) No 1520/2000 and in Article 1 of Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 or in Article 1(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003, exported in the form of goods listed in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 or in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003 respectively, are fixed as shown in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

By way of derogation from Article 1 and with effect from 1 October 2004, the rates set out in the Annex shall not be applicable to goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty when exported to Bulgaria.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on 17 December 2004.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

AGREED MINUTES

I.   Introduction

On 11 March 2004, and after several meetings between Norway and Commission officials, a compromise was reached on tariff reductions or abolition on a number of processed agricultural products covered by Protocol 3 to the EEA Agreement (1) or by Protocol No 2 to the 1973 free trade agreement between the European Economic Community and the Kingdom of Norway (2).

These concessions should lead to the improvement of market access for Norway and the Community and would require the modification of Protocol 3 to the EEA Agreement as well as Protocol No 2 to the bilateral free trade agreement. Therefore, the two parties agreed to submit for approval to their respective authorities some changes to the import arrangements applied by the parties to certain processed agricultural products. The changes will be implemented in the form of a Decision of the EEA Joint Committee amending Protocol 3 to the EEA Agreement and of the present Agreement in the form of an exchange of letters between the European Community and the Kingdom of Norway.

The changes in Protocol No 2 will enter into force on 1 January 2005.

The two parties agree that the respective import arrangements below will replace the agreement in the form of an exchange of letters of 27 November 2002.

The Community will open an annual duty free tariff quota from 1 January to 31 December for goods originating in Norway and classified under CN codes 2202 10 00 (waters, including mineral waters and aerated waters, containing added sugar or other sweetening matter or flavoured) and ex 2202 90 10 (other non-alcoholic beverages containing sugar (sucrose or invert sugar)), for the following quantity: 14,3 million litres in 2005. Outside the quota allocation, the import duty will be 0,047 €/litre. The import duty may be revised annually on the basis of the difference in sugar prices between Norway and the Community.

On 31 October 2005, and on 31 October of each following year, if the tariff quota has been exhausted, the tariff quota applicable from 1 January of the following year will be increased by 10 %. If the quota has not been exhausted on that date, the products mentioned in paragraph 1 will be granted unlimited duty free access to the Community from 1 January to 31 December of the following year.

V.   The tariff quotas specified under II, III and IV shall be granted to originating products in accordance with the rules of origin laid down in Protocol No 3 to the 1973 Free Trade Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Kingdom of Norway.

Sir,

I have the honour to acknowledge receipt of your letter of today's date which reads as follows:

‘I have the honour to confirm that the European Community is in agreement with the “Agreed minutes” attached to this letter concerning Protocol No 2 to the bilateral free trade agreement between the European Economic Community and the Kingdom of Norway.

COMMISSION DECISION

of 30 November 2004

approving the TSE eradication and monitoring programmes of certain Member States for 2005 and fixing the level of the Community’s financial contribution

(notified under document number C(2004) 4603)

(2004/863/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Decision 90/424/EEC of 26 June 1990 on expenditure in the veterinary field (1), and in particular Article 24(6) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Decision 90/424/EEC provides for the possibility of a financial contribution by the Community in the eradication and monitoring of certain animal diseases.

(2)

Most Member Sates have submitted programmes to the Commission for the eradication and monitoring of certain transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs).

(3)

After examination, the programmes submitted by the Member States for the eradication and the monitoring of TSEs were found to comply with Council Decision 90/638/EEC of 27 November 1990 laying down Community criteria for the eradication and monitoring of certain animal diseases (2).

(4)

Those programmes appear on the priority list of programmes for the eradication and monitoring of certain TSEs qualifying for financial contribution from the Community in 2005 and which was established by Commission Decision 2004/696/EC of 14 October 2004 on the list of programmes for the eradication and monitoring of certain TSEs qualifying for a financial contribution from the Community in 2005 (3).

(5)

Regulation (EC) No 999/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2001 laying down rules for the prevention, control and eradication of certain transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (4), provides for annual programmes for the eradication and monitoring of TSEs in bovine, ovine and caprine animals.

(6)

In the light of the importance to eradicate and monitor TSEs for the achievement of Community objectives in the field of animal and public health, it is appropriate to reimburse 100 % of the costs paid by the Member States for the TSE rapid tests performed up to a maximum amount per test and per TSE monitoring programme.

(7)

For the same reason it is appropriate to reimburse 100 % of the laboratory costs paid by the Member States for the performance of genotyping tests up to a maximum per test and per Scrapie eradication programme.

(8)

Council Regulation (EC) No 1258/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the financing of the common agricultural policy (5), provides that programmes for the eradication and monitoring of animal diseases are to be financed under the Guarantee Section of the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund. For financial control purposes, Articles 8 and 9 of that Regulation are to apply.

(9)
