COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 2033/79 of 18 September 1979 fixing the export refunds on milk and milk products

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 804/68 of 27 June 1968 on the common organization of the market in milk and milk products (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1761/78 (2) and in particular Article 17 (4) thereof,

Having regard to the opinion of the Monetary Committee,

Whereas Article 17 of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68 provides that the difference between prices in international trade for the products listed in Article 1 of that Regulation and prices for those products within the Community may be covered by an export refund;

Whereas Council Regulation (EEC) No 876/68 of 28 June 1968 laying down general rules for granting export refunds on milk and milk products and criteria for fixing the amount of such refunds (3) amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2429/72 (4), provides that when the refunds on the products listed in Article 1 of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68, exported in the natural state, are being fixed account must be taken of: - the existing situation and the future trend with regard to prices and availabilities of milk and milk products on the Community market and prices for milk and milk products in international trade;

- marketing costs and the most favourable transport charges from Community markets to ports or other points of export in the Community, as well as costs incurred in placing the goods on the market of the country of destination;

- the aims of the common organization of the market in milk and milk products which are to ensure equilibrium and the natural development of prices and trade on this market;

- the need to avoid disturbances on the Community market ; and

- the economic aspect of the proposed exports;

Whereas Article 3 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 876/68 provides that when prices within the Community are being determined account should be taken of the ruling prices which are most favourable for exportation, and that when prices in international trade are being determined particular account should be taken of: (a) prices ruling on third country markets;

(b) the most favourable prices in third countries of destination for third country imports;

(c) producer prices recorded in exporting third countries, account being taken, where appropriate, of subsidies granted by those countries ; and

(d) free-at-Community-frontier offer prices;

Whereas Article 4 of Regulation (EEC) No 876/68 provides that the world market situation or the specific requirements of certain markets may make it necessary to vary the refund on the products listed in Article 1 of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68 according to destination;

Whereas Article 5 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 876/68 provides that the list of products on which export refunds are granted and the amount of such refunds should be fixed at least once every four weeks ; whereas the amount of the refund may, however, remain at the same level for more than four weeks;

Whereas Article 2 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1098/68 of 27 July 1968 on detailed rules for the application of export refunds on milk and milk products (5), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 37/75 (6), provides that the refund on products falling within subheading 04.02 B is equal to the sum of two (1) OJ No L 148, 28.6.1968, p. 13. (2) OJ No L 204, 28.7.1978, p. 6. (3) OJ No L 155, 3.7.1968, p. 1. (4) OJ No L 264, 23.11.1972, p. 1. (5) OJ No L 184, 29.7.1968, p. 10. (6) OJ No L 5, 9.1.1975, p. 7. components, the first representing the quantity of milk products and the second representing the quantity of added sucrose ; whereas, however, the latter component applies only if the added sucrose was produced from beet or cane harvested within the Community;

Whereas for the products falling within subheading 04.02 B II a) or 04.02 B II b) 1 with a fat content not exceeding 9 75 % by weight, the first component referred to above is fixed for 100 kilograms of the whole product ; whereas, for the other products falling within subheading 04.02 B, this component is calculated by multiplying the basic amount by the milk product content of the product in question ; whereas this basic amount is the refund on one kilogram of milk products contained in the product;

Whereas the second component is calculated by multiplying the sucrose content of the product by the basic amount of the refund valid on the day of exportation for the products listed in Article 1 (1) (d) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 3330/74 of 19 December 1974 on the common organization of the market in sugar (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1396/78 (2);

Whereas, if the refund system is to operate normally, refunds should be calculated on the following basis: - in the case of currencies which are maintained in relation to each other at any given moment within a band of 2 725 %, a rate of exchange based on their effective parity;

- for other currencies, an exchange rate based on the arithmetic mean of the spot market rates of each of these currencies recorded for a given period in relation to the Community currencies referred to in the previous indent;

Whereas the special conditions concerning the payment of the refund for skimmed-milk powder for use as feed in the country of destination were laid down in Regulation (EEC) No 2054/76 (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2949/78 (4);

Whereas the level of refund for cheeses is calculated for products intended for direct consumption ; whereas the cheese rinds and cheese wastes are not products intended for this purpose ; whereas, to avoid any confusion in interpretation, it should be specified that there will be no refund for these products which fall within heading No 04.04;

Whereas it follows from applying these detailed rules to the present situation on the market in milk and milk products, and in particular to prices for these products within the Community and on the world market, that the refund should be as set out in the Annex hereto;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Milk and Milk Products,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1. The export refunds referred to in Article 17 of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68 on products exported in the natural state shall be as set out in the Annex hereto.

2. There shall be no refunds for exports to Zone E for products falling within heading Nos 04.01, 04.02, 04.03 and 23.07 of the Common Customs Tariff.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on 19 September 1979.

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

Done at Brussels, 18 September 1979.
