COMMISSION DIRECTIVE

of 14 October 1985

amending Directive 77/794/EEC laying down detailed rules for implementing certain provisions of Directive 76/308/EEC on mutual assistance for the recovery of claims resulting from operations forming part of the system of financing the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund, and of agricultural levies and customs duties

(85/479/EEC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 76/308/EEC of 15 March 1976 on mutual assistance for the recovery of claims resulting from operations forming part of the system of financing the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund, and of agricultural levies and customs duties, and in respect of value added tax (1), as last amended by Directive 79/1071/EEC (2), and in particular Article 22 (1) thereof,

Whereas detailed rules for implementing certain provisions of Directive 76/308/EEC were laid down by Commission Directive 77/794/EEC (3); whereas the title of Directive 76/308/EEC was amended by Directive 79/1071/EEC; whereas the title of Directive 77/794/EEC must be amended accordingly;

Whereas Article 20 (2) of Directive 77/794/EEC provides that no request for assistance may be made if the amount of the relevant claim or claims is less than 750 ECU;

Whereas Article 12 (2) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 3/84 of 19 December 1983 introducing arrangements for movement within the Community of goods sent from one Member State for temporary use in one or more other Member States (4) provides for mutual assistance between Member States for the recovery of charges due as a result of an irregularity committed in one of them; whereas, however, it is stipulated that the Member State which is recovering the debt may alternatively apply the provisions of Directive 76/308/EEC;

Whereas Article 22 (5) of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2364/84 of 31 July 1984 laying down detailed implementing provisions for the arrangements for movement within the Community of goods sent from one Member State for temporary use in one or more other Member States (5), provides that Article 12 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 3/84 shall not apply where the amount to be recovered is less than 200 ECU;

Whereas, in order to allow, in accordance with Article 12 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 3/84, the provisions adopted in accordance with Directive 76/308/EEC to be applied in cases where the amount to be recovered is 200 ECU or more, it is necessary to derogate from the principle that no request or assistance may be made under that Directive if the amount of the relevant claim or claims is less than 750 ECU;

Whereas Annex I to Directive 77/794/EEC, which contains the form to be used for requesting the information mentioned in Article 4 of Directive 76/308/EEC contains a material error which requires correcting;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Recovery,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

2. Article 20 (2) is replaced by the following:

'2. No request for assistance may be made if the amount of the relevant claim or claims is less than 750 ECU.
