REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 3330/74 OF THE COUNCIL

OF 19 DECEMBER 1974

ON THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN SUGAR

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES ,

HAVING REGARD TO THE TREATY ESTABLISHING THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY , AND IN PARTICULAR ARTICLES 42 , 43 AND 227 THEREOF ;

HAVING REGARD TO THE PROPOSAL FROM THE COMMISSION ;

HAVING REGARD TO THE OPINION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT ;

HAVING REGARD TO THE OPINION OF THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COMMITTEE ;

WHEREAS THE BASIC PROVISIONS CONCERNING THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN SUGAR HAVE BEEN AMENDED MANY TIMES SINCE THEIR ADOPTION ; WHEREAS THESE PROVISIONS MUST AGAIN BE THOROUGHLY AMENDED TO TAKE ACCOUNT , IN PARTICULAR , OF THE FORTHCOMING EXPIRY OF THE TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , IT IS ESSENTIAL TO REDRAFT THE BASIC PROVISIONS ;

WHEREAS THE OPERATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE COMMON MARKET IN AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A COMMON AGRICULTURAL POLICY TO INCLUDE , IN PARTICULAR , A COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE AGRICULTURAL MARKETS , WHICH MAY TAKE VARIOUS FORMS , DEPENDING ON THE PRODUCT CONCERNED ;

WHEREAS , TO ENSURE THAT THE NECESSARY GUARANTEES IN RESPECT OF EMPLOYMENT AND STANDARDS OF LIVING ARE MAINTAINED FOR COMMUNITY GROWERS OF SUGAR BEET AND SUGAR CANE , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR MEASURES TO STABILIZE THE MARKET IN SUGAR ; WHEREAS , TO THIS END , A TARGET PRICE AND AND INTERVENTION PRICE FOR WHITE SUGAR SHOULD BE FIXED EACH YEAR FOR THE COMMUNITY AREA HAVING THE LARGEST SURPLUS ; WHEREAS DERIVED INTERVENTION PRICES SHOULD BE FIXED EACH YEAR FOR OTHER COMMUNITY AREAS , TAKING ACCOUNT OF REGIONAL PRICE VARIATIONS ARISING UNDER NATURAL CONDITIONS OF PRICE FORMATION ON THE MARKET GIVEN A NORMAL HARVEST , AND ALSO OF THE PROCESSING STAGE ; WHEREAS THE ABOVE OBJECTIVE COULD BE ATTAINED BY MAKING PROVISION FOR BUYING IN BY INTERVENTION AGENCIES AT THE INTERVENTION PRICES ; WHEREAS , MOREOVER , A COMPENSATION SYSTEM FOR STORAGE COSTS FOR SUGAR PRODUCED FROM RAW MATERIALS ( INCLUDING MOLASSES ) OF COMMUNITY ORIGIN COULD SERVE THE SAME PURPOSE ;

WHEREAS IT IS NECESSARY TO ENSURE THAT THE REGULATION OF THE SUGAR MARKET INFLUENCES SUGAR BEET AND SUGAR CANE PRODUCTION ; WHEREAS , FOR THIS REASON , IT IS ADVISABLE TO FIX MINIMUM PRICES WHICH MUST BE OBSERVED WHEN SUGAR MANUFACTURERS BUY BEET , TO LAY DOWN , WHILE COMPLYING , INTER ALIA , WITH RULES OF COMPETITION , COMMUNITY OUTLINE PROVISIONS GOVERNING CONTRACTUAL RELATIONS BETWEEN BUYERS AND SELLERS OF BEET , AND TO ADOPT PROVISIONS APPROPRIATE TO THIS END IN RESPECT OF SUGAR CANE PRODUCERS ;

WHEREAS THE CREATION OF A SINGLE COMMUNITY MARKET FOR SUGAR ALWAYS INVOLVES , APART FROM A SINGLE PRICE SYSTEM , THE INTRODUCTION OF A COMMON TRADING SYSTEM AT THE EXTERNAL FRONTIERS OF THE COMMUNITY ; WHEREAS A TRADING SYSTEM INCLUDING IMPORT LEVIES AND EXPORT REFUNDS , COMBINED WITH INTERVENTION MEASURES ALSO SERVES TO STABILIZE THE COMMUNITY MARKET BY PREVENTING , IN PARTICULAR , PRICE FLUCTUATIONS ON THE WORLD MARKET FROM AFFECTING PRICES RULING WITHIN THE COMMUNITY ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE CHARGING OF A LEVY ON IMPORTS FROM THIRD COUNTRIES AND THE PAYMENT OF A REFUND ON EXPORTS TO SUCH COUNTRIES WHICH WOULD , IN EITHER CASE , COVER THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRICES RULING INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE COMMUNITY WHEN WORLD MARKET PRICES ARE LOWER THAN THE COMMUNITY PRICES ;

WHEREAS , IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE SYSTEM AND TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY FOR ITS PROPER WORKING , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR REGULATING OR , WHEN THE SITUATION ON THE MARKET SO REQUIRES , PROHIBITING THE USE OF INWARD PROCESSING ARRANGEMENTS ;

WHEREAS , IN THE EVENT OF A SHORTAGE ON THE WORLD MARKET PUSHING UP WORLD MARKET PRICES TO A LEVEL HIGHER THAN THAT OF THE COMMUNITY PRICES , OR IN THE EVENT OF DIFFICULTIES IN THE NORMAL SUPPLIES TO THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY OR TO ONE OF ITS REGIONS , APPROPRIATE PROVISIONS SHOULD BE LAID DOWN IN ORDER TO AVOID IN GOOD TIME A SITUATION WHERE REGIONAL SURPLUSES ARE EXPORTED TO THIRD COUNTRIES WHILE AN ABNORMAL RISE IN COMMUNITY PRICES MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTINUE TO GUARANTEE SUPPLIES TO CONSUMERS AT REASONABLE PRICES ; WHEREAS , MOREOVER , PROVISIONS SHOULD BE LAID DOWN WITH A VIEW TO INTRODUCING A SYSTEM WHEREBY EACH MANUFACTURER MUST HOLD A MINIMUM STOCK , WHICH IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS TO ACHIEVE THIS OBJECTIVE ;

WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO HELP GUARANTEE SUPPLIES TO THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY OR TO ONE OF ITS REGIONS IT WOULD SEEM ADVISABLE TO LAY DOWN PROVISIONS TO ADOPT UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS , APPROPRIATE INTERVENTION MEASURES ;

WHEREAS IT MUST BE MADE POSSIBLE FOR THE COMPETENT AUTHORITIES TO KEEP A CONSTANT WATCH ON MOVEMENTS IN TRADE WITH THIRD COUNTRIES IN ORDER TO ENABLE THEM TO ASSESS TRENDS THEREOF AND , WHERE APPROPRIATE , APPLY SUCH MEASURES PROVIDED FOR IN THIS REGULATION AS MAY PROVE NECESSARY ; WHEREAS , TO THIS END , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR A SYSTEM OF IMPORT AND EXPORT LICENCES THE ISSUE OF WHICH IS CONDITIONAL ON THE PROVISION OF SECURITY BY WAY OF GUARANTEES THAT THE OPERATION FOR WHICH THE LICENCE IS BEING REQUESTED WILL BE CARRIED OUT ;

WHEREAS THE LEVY SYSTEM MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO DISPENSE WITH ALL OTHER PROTECTIVE MEASURES AT THE EXTERNAL FRONTIERS OF THE COMMUNITY ; WHEREAS , HOWEVER , THE COMMON PRICE AND LEVY MACHINERY MAY IN EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES PROVE DEFECTIVE ; WHEREAS IN SUCH CASES , SO AS NOT TO LEAVE THE COMMUNITY MARKET WITHOUT DEFENCE AGAINST DISTURBANCES WHICH MAY ARISE THEREFROM AFTER THE IMPORT BARRIERS WHICH EXISTED PREVIOUSLY HAVE BEEN REMOVED , THE COMMUNITY SHOULD BE ENABLE SWIFTLY TO TAKE ALL NECESSARY MEASURES ;

WHEREAS IN RECENT YEARS PRODUCTION IN THE COMMUNITY AS ORIGINALLY CONSTITUTED HAS BEEN MAINTAINED AT AN ACCEPTABLE LEVEL IN RELATION TO CONSUMPTION ; WHEREAS EVEN IN THOSE REGIONS WHICH ARE LEAST SUITABLE FOR BEET CULTIVATION PRODUCTION HAS REMAINED AT LEVELS LITTLE SHORT OF THE BASIC QUOTAS ; WHEREAS THANKS TO THE EXISTENCE OF A MEASURE OF COMPETITION , PARTICULARLY IN RESPECT OF SUGAR PRODUCED OUTSIDE THE BASIC QUOTAS , THERE HAS BEEN CONSIDERABLE REGIONAL SPECIALIZATION ; WHEREAS , BECAUSE PRODUCTION OUTSIDE THE QUOTAS HAS BEEN ABLE TO DEVELOP FREELY , IT HAS BEEN ABLE TO BENEFIT TO SOME EXTENT FROM WORLD MARKET PRICES ; WHEREAS , ACCORDINGLY , THE SYSTEM OF PRODUCTION QUOTAS IS LIKELY TO ENABLE THE COMMUNITY TO COPE WITH SURPLUSES AS WELL AS DEFICITS ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , AND IN VIEW OF THE NEW SITUATION ARISING FROM THE ACCESSION OF NEW MEMBER STATES TO THE COMMUNITY , THIS SYSTEM CAN BE RETAINED FOR A SPECIFIED PERIOD PROVIDED THAT CERTAIN ADJUSTMENTS ARE MADE TO IT IN THE LIGHT OF EXPERIENCE , PARTICULARLY AS REGARDS THE INTRODUCTION OF CERTAIN RULES IN RESPECT OF SUGAR PRODUCED OUTSIDE THE QUOTAS ;

WHEREAS IT IS DESIRABLE TO MAINTAIN THE OTHER BASIC PROVISIONS CONCERNING THE COMMUNITY GUARANTEES IN RESPECT OF PRICES AND SALES WHICH ARE LIMITED OR WITHDRAWN IN THE CASE OF QUANTITIES MANUFACTURED OVER AND ABOVE THE BASIC QUOTA DEPENDING ON WHETHER OR NOT THESE QUANTITIES EXCEED A CERTAIN CEILING , AND ALSO THE PROVISIONS CONCERNING DELIVERY CONTRACTS FOR SUGAR BEET AND SUGAR CANE AND THE RULES OF THE CARRY-FORWARD SYSTEM ;

WHEREAS THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A SINGLE MARKET BASED ON A COMMON PRICE SYSTEM WOULD BE JEOPARDIZED BY THE GRANTING OF CERTAIN AIDS ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , THE PROVISIONS OF THE TREATY WHICH ALLOW THE ASSESSMENT OF AIDS GRANTED BY MEMBER STATES AND THE PROHIBITION OF THOSE WHICH ARE INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE COMMON MARKET SHOULD BE MADE TO APPLY TO SUGAR ;

WHEREAS , HOWEVER , ITALIAN BEET AND SUGAR PRODUCTION IS ADVERSELY AFFECTED OWING TO CLIMATIC REASONS AND , MORE PARTICULARLY AS REGARDS BEET PRODUCTION , BY DIFFICULTIES ARISING FROM THE APPLICATION OF MODERN PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE TEMPORARY GRANTING BY ITALY OF ADAPTATION AID TO THE PRODUCERS CONCERNED ;

WHEREAS THE TRANSITION TO THE SYSTEM ESTABLISHED BY THIS REGULATION MUST BE EFFECTED AS SMOOTHLY AS POSSIBLE ; WHEREAS , TO THIS END , CERTAIN TRANSITIONAL MEASURES MAY PROVE NECESSARY AND THE SAME NEED MAY ARISE AT EACH CHANGE-OVER FROM ONE MARKETING YEAR TO THE NEXT ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF ADOPTING APPROPRIATE MEASURES ;

WHEREAS INTERVENTION IS ESSENTIAL IF THE SUGAR PRICE IS TO BE GUARANTEED ; WHEREAS , IN VIEW OF THE SPECIAL IMPORTANCE OF SUGAR PRODUCTION FOR THE ECONOMY OF THE FRENCH OVERSEAS DEPARTMENTS , PROVISIONS CONCERNING THE GUARANTEE SECTION OF THE EUROPEAN AGRICULTURAL GUIDANCE AND GUARANTEE FUND MUST BE MADE TO APPLY TO THESE DEPARTMENTS ;

WHEREAS THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN SUGAR MUST , AT THE SAME TIME , TAKE APPROPRIATE ACCOUNT OF THE OBJECTIVES SET OUT IN ARTICLES 39 AND 110 OF THE TREATY ;

WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO FACILITATE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PROPOSED MEASURES , A PROCEDURE SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR ESTABLISHING CLOSE COOPERATION BETWEEN MEMBER STATES AND THE COMMISSION WITHIN A MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE ;

WHEREAS COUNCIL REGULATION NO 1009/67/EEC ( 1 ) OF 18 DECEMBER 1967 ON THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN SUGAR , AS LAST AMENDED BY REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2476/74 ( 2 ) , SHOULD BE REPEALED ,
