(4)

For the information of Member States and parties concerned, a list should be published at the beginning of each calendar year, of groups which were recognised during the previous calendar year and of those from whom recognition was withdrawn.

as regards placing on the market, particularly where concentration and conditions of supply are concerned:

(i)

general provisions governing sales by the group;

(ii)

provisions relating to the quantities which the producers are authorised to sell themselves and the rules governing these sales.

2.   ‘The first marketing stage’ means the sale of hops by the producer himself or, in the case of a producers' group, the sale of hops by its members to the wholesale trade or to the user industries.

Article 2

1.   If it is to be recognised, a producer group must include areas of at least 60 hectares and at least seven producers.

In the case of Greece, the minimum number of hectares shall be reduced to 30.

2.   In accordance with the procedure referred to in Article 16(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1952/2005, a Member State may be authorised, on request, to recognise a group whose registered areas comprise less than 60 hectares, if the areas are situated in a recognised production region covering less than 100 hectares.

(a)

the statute;

(b)

the names of persons authorised to act on behalf of the group;

(c)

a list of the activities justifying the request for recognition;

(d)

evidence that the provisions of Article 2 have been complied with.

Article 4

1.   Member States shall take a decision on the application for recognition within three months of its receipt.

2.   Recognition of a group shall be withdrawn if the conditions laid down for recognition are no longer fulfilled or if such recognition is based on incorrect information.

Recognition shall be withdrawn with retroactive effect if it has been obtained or used fraudulently.

3.   Member States shall exercise continuous supervision over the observance by recognised groups of the conditions for their recognition.

Article 5

1.   Where a Member State grants, refuses or withdraws recognition of a group it shall so inform the Commission within two months following the communication of its decision to the applicant and indicate the reasons for refusing an application for recognition or of withdrawing recognition.

2.   At the beginning of each calendar year the Commission shall ensure publication in the Official Journal of the European Union of the list of groups which were recognised during the previous calendar year as well as those whose recognition was withdrawn during the same period.

Article 6

Regulation (EEC) No 1351/72 is repealed.

References to the repealed Regulation shall be construed as references to this Regulation and shall be read in accordance with the correlation table in Annex II.

Article 7

This Regulation shall enter into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

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

COMMISSION DECISION

of 30 October 2007

laying down transitional measures for structural requirements of certain establishments in the meat and milk sectors in Bulgaria provided for in Regulations (EC) No 852/2004 and (EC) No 853/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council

(notified under document number C(2007) 5238)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2007/716/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to the Act of Accession of Bulgaria and Romania, and in particular Article 42 thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 89/662/EEC of 11 December 1989 concerning veterinary checks in intra-Community trade with a view to the completion of the internal market (1), and in particular Article 9(4) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Decision 2007/31/EC (2) lays down transitional measures as regards the dispatch from Bulgaria to other Member States of certain products of the meat and milk sectors, covered by Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 laying down specific hygiene rules for food of animal origin (3). Those products are to be dispatched from Bulgaria only if obtained in a processing establishment listed in the Annex to Decision 2007/31/EC.

(2)

The Food and Veterinary Office (FVO) carried out a mission in Bulgaria from 22 to 27 April 2007 with a view to assessing the situation of the processing establishments. The Bulgarian authorities have demonstrated that they now have the capacity and capability to evaluate establishments correctly for approval for intra-Community trade and have solved the former problems of controls. Decision 2007/31/EC should therefore be repealed.

(3)

Regulation (EC) No 852/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 on the hygiene of foodstuffs (4) and Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 provide for certain structural requirements for establishments falling within the scope of those Regulations.

(4)

In Bulgaria certain establishments in the meat and milk sectors need more time to comply with the relevant structural requirements of Regulations (EC) No 852/2004 and (EC) No 853/2004. Accordingly the structural requirements laid down in Regulation (EC) No 852/2004, Annex II, Chapter II and in Regulation (EC) No 853/2004, Annex III, Section I, Chapters II and III, Section II, Chapters II and III, and Section V, Chapter I, should not apply to establishments listed in the Annex to this Decision until 31 December 2009, subject to certain conditions.

(5)

As long as those establishments are in transition, products originating from those establishments should only be placed on the domestic market or used for further processing in Bulgarian establishments in transition. For the purposes of checking that the products produced in those establishments are traded and placed only on the national market the products should bear a different health or identification mark from that provided for in Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 and that mark should be communicated to the other Member States.

(6)

Bulgaria should ensure gradual compliance with the relevant structural requirements in accordance with an upgrading plan, approved by the competent national veterinary authority, for each of those establishments. The plan should include a list of all shortcomings and the planned date of their correction. Bulgaria should ensure that only those establishments which fully comply with these requirements by 31 December 2009 may continue to operate.

(7)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The structural requirements laid down in Regulation (EC) No 852/2004, Annex II, Chapter II and in Regulation (EC) No 853/2004, Annex III, Section I, Chapters II and III, Section II, Chapters II and III, and Section V, Chapter I, shall not apply to establishments listed in the Annex to this Decision until 31 December 2009.

Article 2

1.   The following products shall only be placed on the domestic market or used for further processing in establishments listed in the Annex:

(a)

products originating from establishments listed in the Annex;

(b)

products originating from integrated meat and milk establishments part of which is listed in the Annex.

2.   The products referred to in paragraph 1 shall bear a different health or identification mark from that provided for in Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 853/2004.

3.   Bulgaria shall communicate the health or identification marks used for the products referred to in paragraph 1 to the Commission, which shall forward the information to the other Member States.

Article 3

Decision 2007/31/EC is repealed.

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 30 October 2007.

COMMISSION DECISION

of 31 October 2007

setting up an Expert Group on electronic invoicing (e-Invoicing)

(2007/717/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 3 of the Treaty assigned the Community the task of ensuring the creation of an internal market characterised by the abolition, between Member States, of obstacles to the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital.

(2)

Article 232 of Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 on the common system of value added tax (1) allows the issue of electronic invoices instead of paper invoices.

(3)

The revised Lisbon Strategy for Growth and Jobs (2) provides an all encompassing economic reform agenda. Its micro economic pillar focuses on creating a business-friendly environment. Within this target, the development of interoperable electronic invoicing (e-Invoicing) solutions is a vital component.

(4)

In its communication to the Council, the European Parliament, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions ‘i2010 — A European Information Society for growth and employment’ (3) of 1 June 2005, the Commission launched the i2010 initiative as a framework for addressing the main challenges and developments in the information society and media sector up to 2010. It promotes an open and competitive digital economy and emphasises information and communication technologies (ICT as a driver of inclusion and quality of life).

(5)

The European Payments Council (EPC), the decision making and coordination body of the European banking industry in relation to payments, has committed itself to establishing by 2010 a Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) with integrated payment infrastructures and payment products.

(6)

e-Invoicing links the internal processes of enterprises to the payment systems. Therefore, SEPA and a successful European e-Invoicing initiative would complement each other. These two initiatives together are expected to deliver huge benefits to enterprises and financial service providers through improved efficiency and automation of supply chains.

(7)

In order to enhance the use of the digital environment and to reap the full benefits of e-Invoicing in the Community, the current practices should be simplified and the transition to new business models facilitated by a more integrated and uniform framework. This would specially serve the interests of European small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

(8)

In December 2006, a group of stakeholders formed an industry Task Force on e-Invoicing, which was chaired by the services of the Commission, and included enterprises, representatives of banks and other service providers, as well as standardisation organisations. The aim of the Task Force was to pave the way for future work on a European e-Invoicing Framework. The Task Force formulated proposals for a potential governance structure and designed a roadmap for an e-Invoicing programme. The Task Force delivered its final report in June 2007.

(9)

Given the positive experience with the Task Force, and in order to address longer-term issues, an Expert Group on e-Invoicing should be established.

(10)

Its tasks should be to identify business requirements (4) and responsibilities for the execution of specific work, as well as to steer the creation — by the end of 2009 — of a European e-Invoicing Framework to establish a common conceptual structure to support the provision of e-Invoicing services in an open and interoperable manner across Europe.

(11)

The Expert Group should be composed of persons having direct and relevant expertise in respect of activities relating to e-Invoicing, including key stakeholders from the public sector, big and small enterprises as well as services providers, standardisation organisations and consumers representatives. In addition, provision should be made for the participation of observers. Any report or outcome of the Expert Group should be the work of the Group's members and should not be understood as reflecting the views of the Commission.

(12)

Rules on disclosure of information by members of the Expert Group should be provided for, without prejudice to the rules on security annexed to the Commission's rules of procedure by Decision 2001/844/EC, ECSC, Euratom (5).

(13)

Personal data relating to members of the Expert Group should be processed in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 of the European Parliament and the Council of 18 December 2000 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community institutions and bodies on the free movement of such data (6).

(14)

It is appropriate to fix a period for the application of this Decision. The Commission will in due time consider the advisability of an extension,

ANNEX

TERMS OF REFERENCE

EXPERT GROUP ON ELECTRONIC INVOICING

1.   BACKGROUND

The European Commission (EC) has responded to the challenges of economic globalisation. In its broad-based innovation strategy, launched in September 2006, the EC observed, ‘In this new economic order, Europe cannot compete unless it becomes more inventive, reacts better to consumer needs and preferences and innovates more.’

Two aspects, efficiency and certainty, emerge as the basis for improving European competitiveness in a global economy. Making value chains more efficient reduces cost; improving the certainty of the environment in which they operate makes them more competitive. Therefore, achieving value chain efficiency and certainty is a foundation for innovation.

Streamlining the flow of information in any value chain will reduce inefficiencies, improve certainty and reduce cost. As Europe moves to adopt the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA), the business processes necessitating a vast majority of Business-to-Business and Business-to-Government payments should also be addressed. SEPA is expected to contribute significantly to the Lisbon Agenda.

The scope and objective of a European Electronic Invoicing (EEI) Framework is to provide the basis to achieve interoperability of e-Invoicing solutions in the public and private sector. It will derive a basis for interoperability through common business rules and technical standards. Assisting in strengthening the positive commercial incentives for electronic trade as a replacement to manual paper-based processes, the Framework will contribute to the removal of current barriers to the take-up and establishment of intra-community (cross-border) e-Invoicing solutions.

2.   MANDATE OF THE EXPERT GROUP ON E-INVOICING

The Expert Group (the Group) will assist the Commission in the development and monitoring progress towards an agreed strategy for the creation of a European e-Invoicing Framework.

The Group's tasks shall be completed by 31 December 2009.

The Group shall fulfil the following particular tasks:

(a)

identifying shortcomings in the regulatory framework for e-Invoicing at Community and Member State level, which prevent the Community economy exploiting its full potential;

(c)

identifying relevant e-Invoicing data elements, especially for the linkage between the invoice and, at least, the procurement and the payments process, issues related to value added tax, authentication and integrity, archiving and storage demands, as well as the need to ensure the validation of those elements by key stakeholders;

(d)

proposing responsibilities to be assigned to standardisation bodies and a time schedule for the development of common standard(s) based on the business and data requirements of stakeholders to support a European e-Invoicing Framework;

(e)

proposing the European e-Invoicing Framework. The European e-Invoicing Framework is to establish a common conceptual structure, including business requirements and standard(s), and propose solutions supporting the provision of e-Invoicing services in an open and interoperable manner across Europe.

In carrying out its task, the Group shall take account of already existing work and solutions, in particular concerning business requirements and technical standards, in the domain of e-Invoicing in the public and private sector.

COMMISSION DECISION

of 6 November 2007

concerning certain protection measures against foot-and-mouth disease in Cyprus

(notified under document number C(2007) 5452)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2007/718/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 89/662/EEC of 11 December 1989 concerning veterinary checks in intra-Community trade with a view to the completion of the internal market (1), and in particular Article 9(4) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/425/EEC of 26 June 1990 concerning veterinary and zootechnical checks applicable in intra-Community trade in certain live animals and products with a view to the completion of the internal market (2), and in particular Article 10(4) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Outbreaks of foot-and-mouth disease have been declared in Cyprus.

(2)

The foot-and-mouth disease situation in Cyprus is liable to endanger the herds of other Member States in view of trade in live biungulate animals and the placing on the market of certain of their products.

(3)

Cyprus has taken measures in the framework of Council Directive 2003/85/EC of 29 September 2003 on Community measures for the control of foot-and-mouth disease repealing Directive 85/511/EEC and Decisions 89/531/EEC and 91/665/EEC and amending Directive 92/46/EEC (3), and has introduced further measures within the affected areas.

(4)

The disease situation in Cyprus makes it necessary to reinforce the control measures for foot-and-mouth disease taken by Cyprus.

(5)

It is appropriate to define as a permanent measure the high and low risk areas in the affected Member State and to provide for a prohibition on the dispatch of susceptible animals from the high and low risk areas and on the dispatch of products derived from susceptible animals from the high risk area. The Decision should also provide for the rules applicable to the dispatch from those areas of safe products that either had been produced before the restrictions, from raw material sourced from outside the restricted areas or that had undergone a treatment proven effective in inactivating possible foot-and-mouth disease virus.

(6)

The size of the defined risk areas is a direct function of the outcome of tracing of possible contacts to the infected holding and takes into account the possibility to implement sufficient controls on the movement of animals and products. At this point of time and based on information provided by Cyprus, the whole of Cyprus should currently remain a high risk area.

(7)

The prohibition of dispatch should only cover products derived from animals of susceptible species coming from or obtained from animals originating in the high risk areas listed in Annex I and should not affect transit through these areas of such products coming from or obtained from animals originating in other areas.

(8)

Council Directive 64/432/EEC (4) concerns animal health problems affecting intra-Community trade in bovine animals and swine.

(9)

Council Directive 91/68/EEC (5) concerns animal health conditions governing intra-Community trade in ovine and caprine animals.

(10)

Council Directive 92/65/EEC of 13 July 1992 laying down animal health requirements governing trade in and imports into the Community of animals, semen, ova and embryos not subject to animal health requirements laid down in specific Community rules referred to in Annex A (I) to Directive 90/425/EEC (6) concerns, amongst others, trade in other biungulates and in semen, ova and embryos of sheep and goats, and in embryos of porcine animals.

(11)

Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 laying down specific hygiene rules for food of animal origin (7) concerns, amongst others, the health conditions for the production and marketing of fresh meat, minced meat, mechanically separated meat, meat preparations, farmed game meat, meat products, including treated stomachs, bladders and intestines, and dairy products.

(12)

Regulation (EC) No 854/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 laying down specific rules for the organisation of official controls on products of animal origin intended for human consumption (8) concerns, amongst others, the health marking of food of animal origin.

(13)

Council Directive 2002/99/EC of 16 December 2002 laying down the animal health rules governing the production, processing, distribution and introduction of products of animal origin for human consumption (9) provides for specific treatment of meat products that ensure inactivation of the foot-and-mouth disease virus in products of animal origin.

(14)

Commission Decision 2001/304/EC of 11 April 2001 on marking and use of certain animal products in relation to Decision 2001/172/EC concerning certain protection measures with regard to foot-and-mouth disease in the United Kingdom (10) concerns a specific health mark to be applied to certain products of animal origin that shall be restricted to the national market. It is appropriate to lay down in a separate Annex a similar marking in the case of foot-and-mouth disease in Cyprus.

(15)

Council Directive 92/118/EEC (11) lays down animal health and public health requirements governing trade in and imports into the Community of products not subject to the said requirements laid down in specific Community rules referred to in Annex A(I) to Directive 89/662/EEC and, as regards pathogens, to Directive 90/425/EEC.

(16)

Regulation (EC) No 1774/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 3 October 2002 laying down health rules concerning animal by-products not intended for human consumption (12) provides for a range of treatments of animal by-products suitable to inactivate foot-and-mouth disease virus.

(17)

Council Directive 88/407/EEC (13) lays down the animal health requirements applicable to intra-Community trade in and imports of deep-frozen semen of domestic animals of the bovine species.

(18)

Council Directive 89/556/EEC (14) concerns the animal health conditions governing intra-Community trade in and imports from third countries of embryos of domestic animals of the bovine species.

(19)

Council Directive 90/429/EEC (15) lays down the animal health requirements applicable to intra-Community trade in and imports of semen of domestic animals of the porcine species.

(20)

Council Decision 90/424/EEC of 26 June 1990 on expenditure in the veterinary field (16) provides for a mechanism to compensate affected holdings for losses incurred as a result of disease control measures.

(21)

Insofar as medicinal products defined in Directive 2001/82/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 November 2001 on the Community code relating to veterinary medicinal products (17), Directive 2001/83/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 November 2001 on the Community code relating to medicinal products for human use (18), and Directive 2001/20/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 April 2001 on the approximation of the laws, regulations and administrative provisions of the Member States relating to the implementation of good clinical practice in the conduct of clinical trials on medicinal products for human use (19) no longer fall under the scope of Regulation (EC) No 1774/2002 they should be excluded from animal health related restrictions set up by this Decision.

(22)

Article 6 of Commission Decision 2007/275/EC of 17 April 2007 concerning lists of animals and products to be subject to controls at border inspection posts under Council Directives 91/496/EEC and 97/78/EC (20) provides for a derogation from the veterinary checks for certain products containing animal products. It is appropriate to allow dispatch from the high risk areas of such products under a simplified certification regime.

(23)

Member States other than Cyprus should support the disease control measures carried out in the affected areas by ensuring that live susceptible animals are not consigned to those areas.

(24)

To better understand the epidemiological situation and to facilitate the detection of possible infection, it is necessary to enforce a prolonged standstill for livestock on the island while granting the possibility for slaughter and the transport of equidae under controlled conditions.

(25)

The situation shall be reviewed at the meeting of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health scheduled for 3 December 2007, and the measures adapted where necessary.

(26)

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