REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2744/75 OF THE COUNCIL OF 29 OCTOBER 1975 ON THE IMPORT AND EXPORT SYSTEM FOR PRODUCTS PROCESSED FROM CEREALS AND FROM RICE

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES ,

HAVING REGARD TO THE TREATY ESTABLISHING THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY ;

HAVING REGARD TO COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 ( 1 ) OF 29 OCTOBER 1975 ON THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS , AND IN PARTICULAR ARTICLES 14 ( 3 ) , 16 ( 5 ) , 17 AND 23 ( 2 ) THEREOF ;

HAVING REGARD TO COUNCIL REGULATION NO 359/67/EEC ( 2 ) OF 25 JULY 1967 ON THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN RICE , AS LAST AMENDED BY COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 668/75 ( 3 ) , AND IN PARTICULAR ARTICLES 12 ( 3 ) , 17 ( 5 ) AND 18 THEREOF ;

HAVING REGARD TO THE PROPOSAL FROM THE COMMISSION ;

WHEREAS UNDER ARTICLES 14 ( 3 ) AND 16 ( 5 ) OF REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 AND ARTICLES 12 ( 3 ) AND 17 ( 5 ) OF REGULATION NO 359/67/EEC RULES SHOULD BE ADOPTED FOR THE APPLICATION OF THE SYSTEM OF LEVIES AND REFUNDS APPLICABLE IN TRADE WITH THIRD COUNTRIES IN PRODUCTS PROCESSED FROM CEREALS AND FROM RICE , EXCLUDING COMPOUND FEEDINGSTUFFS FOR WHICH SPECIAL RULES HAVE BEEN LAID DOWN IN REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2743/75 ( 4 ) ;

WHEREAS THE VARIABLE COMPONENT OF THE LEVY MUST CORRESPOND TO THE INCIDENCE ON THE PRIME COSTS OF PROCESSED PRODUCTS OF THE LEVIES ON BASIC PRODUCTS ; WHEREAS THAT INCIDENCE MAY BE CALCULATED ON THE BASIS OF THE AVERAGE OF THE LEVIES APPLICABLE DURING A REPRESENTATIVE PERIOD TO THE QUANTITY OF THE BASIC PRODUCT DEEMED NECESSARY FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF ONE UNIT OF THE PROCESSED PRODUCT ;

WHEREAS IN RESPECT OF PRODUCTS SUBJECT TO THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN CEREALS , BUT CONTAINING NO CEREALS , THE VARIABLE COMPONENT SHOULD BE CALCULATED WITH REFERENCE TO MARKET CONDITIONS FOR PRODUCTS WHICH ARE IN COMPETITION WITH THEM ;

WHEREAS THE FIXED COMPONENT OF THE LEVY MUST BE DESIGNED TO PROTECT THE PROCESSING INDUSTRY ; WHEREAS THAT COMPONENT SHOULD BE DETERMINED ON THE BASIS OF THE MOST REPRESENTATIVE PROCESSING COSTS ;

WHEREAS , FOR SOME RESIDUES OF PROCESSING , PROTECTION FOR THE INDUSTRY IS ALREADY ASSURED THROUGH THE PROTECTION ENJOYED BY THE MAIN PROCESSED PRODUCT ; WHEREAS IN THAT CASE THE FIXED COMPONENT CAN BE EQUAL TO ZERO ;

WHEREAS THE OBJECT OF THE REFUND SHOULD BE TO COVER THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PRICES OF PRODUCTS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY AND ON THE WORLD MARKET ; WHEREAS , FOR THAT PURPOSE , CRITERIA SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED FOR DETERMINING THE REFUND ESSENTIALLY ON THE BASIS OF PRICES OF THE BASIC PRODUCTS WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE COMMUNITY AND THE OUTLETS AND CONDITIONS FOR THE SALE OF PROCESSED PRODUCTS ON THE WORLD MARKET ;

WHEREAS PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR GRANTING , AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MARKETING YEAR , A REFUND WHICH TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE ACTUAL COST OF THE SUPPLY OF BASIC PRODUCTS IN SO FAR AS THEY WERE PURCHASED AT THE END OF THE PREVIOUS MARKETING YEAR AT A HIGHER PRICE THAN THAT RULING FOR THE PRODUCT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW MARKETING YEAR ;

WHEREAS , IN ADDITION TO THE SYSTEM DESCRIBED ABOVE , THE USE OF INWARD PROCESSING ARRANGEMENTS SHOULD BE REGULATED IN ORDER TO ENSURE A BALANCE BETWEEN THE USE OF COMMUNITY BASIC PRODUCTS IN THE MANUFACTURE OF PROCESSED GOODS FOR EXPORT TO THIRD COUNTRIES AND THE USE OF THIRD COUNTRY PRODUCTS BROUGHT IN UNDER INWARD PROCESSING ARRANGEMENTS ;

WHEREAS , FOR CERTAIN PRODUCTS SUCH AS ROASTED MALT OR ROASTED GLUTEN THE LEVY HAS TO BE DETERMINED WITHOUT IT BEING POSSIBLE TO ASCERTAIN THE RAW MATERIAL FROM WHICH THEY WERE OBTAINED ; WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO AVOID ANY POSSIBLE DEFLECTIONS OF TRADE BECAUSE OF THE DIFFERENT SYSTEMS AT PRESENT EXISTING FOR GLUCOSE FALLING WITHIN HEADING NO 17.02 AND GLUCOSE FALLING WITHIN HEADING NO 17.05 , THE LATTER PRODUCTS SHOULD BE SUBJECT TO THE SAME RULES AS THE FORMER ,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION :

HOWEVER , FOR PRODUCTS FALLING WITHIN TARIFF HEADING NO 23.02 , THE VARIABLE COMPONENT OF THE LEVY SHALL BE OBTAINED BY ADDING TOGETHER THE AVERAGES OF THE LEVIES APPLICABLE TO ONE METRIC TON OF COMMON WHEAT , ONE METRIC TON OF BARLEY AND ONE METRIC TON OF MAIZE AND MULTIPLYING THAT TOTAL BY THE COEFFICIENT WHICH APPEARS AGAINST EACH OF THESE BASIC PRODUCTS IN COLUMN 4 .

IN ORDER TO ADJUST THE ABOVEMENTIONED AVERAGES TO THE THRESHOLD PRICE VALID FOR THE BASIC PRODUCT IN QUESTION DURING THE MONTH OF IMPORTATION , THEY SHALL BE INCREASED OR REDUCED BY THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THAT THRESHOLD PRICE AND THE THRESHOLD PRICE VALID DURING THE PRECEDING MONTH . HOWEVER , THAT ADJUSTMENT SHALL NOT BE MADE IF THE AVERAGE OF THE LEVIES APPLICABLE FOR THE FIRST 25 DAYS OF THE MONTH PRECEDING THAT OF IMPORTATION OF THE BASIC PRODUCT IS EQUAL TO ZERO .

2 . REVISION OF THE VARIABLE COMPONENT DURING THE COURSE OF THE MONTH , TO TAKE ACCOUNT OF A VARIATION IN THE LEVY APPLICABLE TO BASIC PRODUCTS , SHALL BE EFFECTED BY THE COMMISSION AT A FLAT RATE . THE MARGIN OF VARIATION BEYOND WHICH THAT REVISION IS EFFECTED SHALL BE DETERMINED FOR EACH OF THE BASIC PRODUCTS IN QUESTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROCEDURE LAID DOWN IN ARTICLE 26 OF REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2727/75 AND ARTICLE 26 OF REGULATION NO 359/67/EEC .

( C ) THE POSSIBLE DUPLICATION OF REFUNDS APPLICABLE TO VARIOUS PRODUCTS OBTAINED FROM ONE AND THE SAME PROCESS AND ONE AND THE SAME PRODUCT ;

( D ) OUTLETS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE FOR PROCESSED PRODUCTS ON THE WORLD MARKET .

2 . IF , IN THE CASE OF AN EXPORT TO BE EFFECTED BETWEEN THE START OF THE MARKETING YEAR AND DATES TO BE DETERMINED , THE PROCESSED PRODUCT WAS MANUFACTURED FROM A BASIC PRODUCT HARVESTED IN THE COMMUNITY , IN STOCK AT THE END OF THE PRECEDING MARKETING YEAR AND NOT BENEFITING FROM A CARRY-OVER PAYMENT , THE THRESHOLD PRICE VALID DURING THE LAST MONTH OF THE PRECEDING MARKETING YEAR FOR THE BASIC PRODUCTS USED IN CALCULATING THE VARIABLE COMPONENT OF THE LEVY MAY BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT WHEN APPLYING PARAGRAPH 1 ( A ) .

3 . WHERE THE WORLD MARKET SITUATION OR THE SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS OF CERTAIN MARKETS SO REQUIRE , THE REFUND MAY BE VARIED ACCORDING TO DESTINATION .

4 . WHERE PARAGRAPH 3 APPLIES , THE REFUND SHALL BE PAID PROVIDED IT IS PROVED THAT THE PRODUCT HAS BEEN EXPORTED FROM THE COMMUNITY , AS LAID DOWN IN THE FIRST INDENT OF ARTICLE 8 ( 1 ) OF REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2746/75 ( 5 ) AND HAS REACHED THE DESTINATION FOR WHICH THE REFUND WAS FIXED .

IN THE CASE REFERRED TO IN THE FOREGOING PARAGRAPH THE REFUND SHALL BE ADJUSTED BY REFERENCE TO THE THRESHOLD PRICE IN FORCE DURING THE MONTH OF EXPORTATION FOR THE BASIC PRODUCT OR PRODUCTS . THE ADJUSTMENT SHALL BE EFFECTED BY INCREASING OR REDUCING THE REFUND BY THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE THRESHOLD PRICES VALID FOR ONE METRIC TON OF THE BASIC PRODUCT DURING , RESPECTIVELY , THE MONTH IN WHICH THE LICENCE WAS APPLIED FOR AND THE MONTH OF EXPORTATION , MULTIPLIED BY THE COEFFICIENTS WHICH APPEAR AGAINST THE PROCESSED PRODUCT IN QUESTION IN COLUMN 4 OF ANNEX I .

HOWEVER , FOR EXPORTS TAKING PLACE UNDER THE CONDITIONS PROVIDED FOR IN ARTICLE 6 ( 2 ) THE ADJUSTMENT MAY BE EFFECTED ON THE BASIS OF THE THRESHOLD PRICE VALID DURING THE LAST MONTH OF THE PRECEDING MARKETING YEAR .
