COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 1126/2011

of 7 November 2011

amending Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1120/2009 as regards the amounts for the funding of the specific support provided for in Council Regulation (EC) No 73/2009

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 of 19 January 2009 establishing common rules for direct support schemes for farmers under the common agricultural policy and establishing certain support schemes for farmers, amending Regulations (EC) No 1290/2005, (EC) No 247/2006, (EC) No 378/2007 and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003 (1), and in particular the fourth subparagraph of Article 69(7) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 49(2) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1120/2009 of 29 October 2009 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of the single payment scheme provided for in Title III of Council Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 establishing common rules for direct support schemes for farmers under the common agricultural policy and establishing certain support schemes for farmers (2), Member States may request by 1 August in any given calendar year from 2010 a revision of the amounts referred to in Article 69(6)(a) of Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 where the amount resulting from application of the calculation set out in the first subparagraph of Article 69(7) of that Regulation for the financial year in question differs by more than 20 % from the amount fixed in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1120/2009.

(2)

Denmark, Finland and Slovenia have addressed to the Commission a request for a revision of the amounts referred to in Article 69(6)(a) of Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 with effect from 2012.

(3)

Following the requests submitted by Denmark, Finland and Slovenia, the Commission has made the necessary calculation in order to verify that the threshold of 20 % referred to in Article 49(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1120/2009 was reached in the financial year 2010. For the purpose of applying Article 69(7)(a) of Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 the Commission used the average rate of modulation estimated for Denmark, Finland and Slovenia respectively when fixing the net ceilings set out in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 73/2009.

(4)

According to this calculation, in the case of Denmark, Finland and Slovenia, the amount resulting from application of the calculation set out in the first subparagraph of Article 69(7) of Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 for the financial year 2010 differs by 47 %, 29 % and 47 % respectively from the amount fixed in Annex III to Regulation (EC) 1120/2009.

(5)

The amount fixed for Denmark, Finland and Slovenia in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1120/2009 should therefore be revised. Such revised amounts should be applicable from the calendar year 2012, in accordance with the second subparagraph of Article 49(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1120/2009.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Direct Payments,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1120/2009 is amended as follows:

(a)

the entry concerning Denmark is replaced by the following:

‘Denmark

(b)

the entry concerning Finland is replaced by the following:

(c)

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 1127/2011

of 7 November 2011

concerning the non-approval of the active substance 2-naphthyloxyacetic acid, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market and repealing Council Directives 79/117/EEC and 91/414/EEC (1), and in particular Article 13(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 80(1)(c) of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, Council Directive 91/414/EEC (2) is to apply, with respect to the procedure and the conditions for approval, to active substances for which completeness has been established in accordance with Article 16 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 33/2008 of 17 January 2008 laying down detailed rules for the application of Council Directive 91/414/EEC as regards a regular and an accelerated procedure for the assessment of active substances which were part of the programme of work referred to in Article 8(2) of that Directive but have not been included into its Annex I (3). 2-naphthyloxyacetic acid is an active substance for which completeness has been established in accordance with that Regulation.

(2)

Commission Regulations (EC) No 1112/2002 (4) and (EC) No 2229/2004 (5) lay down detailed rules for the implementation of the fourth stage of the programme of work referred to in Article 8(2) of Directive 91/414/EEC and establish a list of active substances to be assessed, with a view to their possible inclusion in Annex I to Directive 91/414/EEC. That list included 2-naphthyloxyacetic acid.

(3)

In accordance with Article 24f of Regulation (EC) No 2229/2004 and Article 25(1)(a) and (2)(b) of that Regulation, Commission Decision 2009/65/EC of 26 January 2009 concerning the non-inclusion of 2-Naphthyloxyacetic acid in Annex I to Council Directive 91/414/EEC and the withdrawal of authorisations for plant protection products containing that substance (6) was adopted.

(4)

Pursuant to Article 6(2) of Directive 91/414/EEC the original notifier (hereinafter ‘the applicant’) submitted a new application requesting the accelerated procedure to be applied, as provided for in Articles 14 to 19 of Regulation (EC) No 33/2008.

(5)

The application was submitted to Italy, replacing France which had originally been designated rapporteur Member State by Regulation (EC) No 2229/2004. The time period for the accelerated procedure was respected. The specification of the active substance and the supported uses are the same as were the subject of Decision 2009/65/EC. That application also complies with the remaining substantive and procedural requirements of Article 15 of Regulation (EC) No 33/2008.

(6)

Italy evaluated the additional data submitted by the applicant and prepared an additional report. It communicated that report to the European Food Safety Authority (hereinafter ‘the Authority’) and to the Commission on 21 May 2010. The Authority communicated the additional report to the other Member States and the applicant for comments and forwarded the comments it had received to the Commission. In accordance with Article 20(1) of Regulation (EC) No 33/2008 and at the request of the Commission, the Authority presented its conclusion on the risk assessment of 2-naphthyloxyacetic acid to the Commission on 28 April 2011 (7). The draft assessment report, the additional report and the conclusion of the Authority were reviewed by the Member States and the Commission within the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health and finalised on 27 September 2011 in the format of the Commission review report for 2-naphthyloxyacetic acid.

(7)

Based on the new data submitted by the applicant and included in the additional report an acceptable daily intake could be set. However, during the evaluation of this active substance, a number of other concerns have been identified. In particular, it was not possible to perform a consumer exposure assessment, as necessary information was missing as regards livestock exposure, plant metabolism, residue trials, processing studies and plant residue definition. Furthermore, data were also missing to conclude on the risk to bees, earthworms and soil macro-organisms.

(8)

The Commission invited the applicant to submit its comments on the conclusion of the Authority. Furthermore, in accordance with Article 21(1) of Regulation (EC) No 33/2008, the Commission invited the applicant to submit comments on the draft review report. The applicant submitted its comments, which have been carefully examined.

(9)

However, despite the arguments put forward by the applicant, the concerns referred to in recital 7 could not be eliminated. Consequently, it has not been demonstrated that it may be expected that, under the proposed conditions of use, plant protection products containing 2-naphthyloxyacetic acid satisfy in general the requirements laid down in Article 5(1)(a) and (b) of Directive 91/414/EEC.

(10)

2-naphthyloxyacetic acid should therefore not be approved pursuant to Article 13(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009.

(11)

In the interest of clarity, Decision 2009/65/EC should be repealed.

(12)

This Regulation does not prejudice the submission of a further application for 2-naphthyloxyacetic acid pursuant to Article 7 of Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009.

(13)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Non-approval of active substance

The active substance 2-naphthyloxyacetic acid is not approved.

Article 2

Repeal

Decision 2009/65/EC is repealed.

Article 3

Entry into force

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.
