COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) No 1785/81

of 30 June 1981

on the common organization of the markets in the sugar sector

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES ,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community , and in particular Articles 42 and 43 thereof ,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission ( 1 ) ,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament ( 2 ) ,

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee ( 3 ) ,

Whereas the basic provisions concerning the common organization of the markets in sugar and isoglucose 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 quota provisions for sugar and isoglucose ; whereas , therefore , it is essential to redraft the basic provisions concerning these two sectors ;

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 isoglucose is a direct substitute for liquid sugar obtained from sugar beet or sugar cane ; whereas , therefore , the markets in sugar and isoglucose are closely linked ; whereas the situation in the Community in respect of sweeteners is characterized by structural surpluses and any Community decision relating to one of these products inevitably has repercussions on the other ; whereas it is therefore necessary to have an organization commom to the sugar and isoglucose sectors which takes appropriate account of production features specific to one or the other sector ;

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 and for this purpose there should be fixed annually a target price for white sugar and , for the areas having no deficit , an intervention price for white sugar , as well as an intervention price for raw sugar , and , for each of the deficit areas , a derived intervention price for white sugar and , should the case arise , for raw sugar ; 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 both from raw materials of Community origin , including molasses , and preferential sugar could serve the same purpose ; whereas these price guarantees given for sugar also benefit sugar syrups and isoglucose , the prices of which are based on those of sugar ;

Whereas it is necessary that these regulatory measures should provide guarantees which are fair both to manufacturers and to producers of the basic products ; whereas it is therefore appropriate to fix for beet , in addition to a basic price , minimum prices for A beet intended for processing into A sugar and a minimum price for B beet intended for processing into B sugar which must be observed when sugar manufacturers buy beet ; whereas it is also appropriate to provide , in the interests of ensuring a fair balance of rights and duties between agricultural manufacturers and producers , the instruments necessary to this end and , in particular , to establish Community outline provisions governing the contractual relations between buyers and sellers of beet and to provide for adequate measures to achieve this object in respect of sugar cane ;

Whereas the creation of a Community market for sugar as for isoglucose implies the introduction of a common trading system at the external frontiers of the Community ; whereas a trading system including import levies and export refunds tends to stabilize the Community market in preventing , in particular , price fluctuations on the world market from affecting prices for these two products ruling within the Community ; whereas , therefore , provision should be made for the charging of a levy on imports from third countries and for the payment of a refund on exports to such countries which , as regards sugar , would , in either case , cover , with regard to the sugar , the difference between prices ruling inside and outside the Community when world market prices are lower than the Community prices and , with regard to isoglucose , would ensure a certain measure of protection for the Community industry which processes this product ;

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 order to ensure normal supplies to the Community as a whole or to one of its areas , a system of minimum stock would be an effective measure ; whereas it is also appropriate , in order to achieve this objective , to lay down provisions which would enable appropriate intervention measures to be taken under certain conditions ;

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 Community as a whole or to one of its areas , 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 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 , to 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 upon the lodging of a deposit as a guarantee 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 prices 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 enabled swiftly to take all necessary measures ;

Whereas the reasons which have hitherto led the Community to retain a production quota system for sugar and isoglucose remain valid ; whereas , however , changes should be made in that system to take account of recent developments in production and to provide the Community with the instruments necessary to ensure , in a fair yet efficient way , that the producers themselves meet in full the cost of disposing of the surpluses of Community production over consumption ; whereas , however , such a system should apply for a limited period only and should be regarded as transitional ;

Whereas , for the sugar beet sector , having regard to the implications , in particular of a general nature , for the operation of the common organization of the markets in sugar , application of Council Regulation ( EEC ) No 1360/78 of 19 June 1978 on producer groups and associations thereof ( 4 ) should be postponed for the period during which the production quota arrangements are applied ;

Whereas provision should be made , for the establishment of the B quota of each undertaking , that , when an undertaking has benefited from the total or partial transfer of a basic quota pursuant to Regulation ( EEC ) No 3330/74 , account should be taken of the corresponding production realized by the undertaking where the transfer comes from before the operation during the 1975/76 to 1979/80 sugar years ;

Whereas it is appropriate to make provision , in the framework of the quota arrangements , for measures which will meet , should the case arise , the restructuring needs of the sugar beet and sugar cane crop sectors , the sugar production sector and the isoglucose production sector both as regards their existing production units and those likely to be created ; whereas , to this end , and in view of the complex nature , peculiar to each Member State , of such operations , there are good reasons for giving Member States , in the form of rules and special Community criteria , in addition to the power to allocate the quotas on the basis of sugar producing or isoglucose producing undertakings , the power to amend subsequently the quotas of existing undertakings by subtracting them from a total amount which may not , however , exceed , for all the periods from 1 July 1981 to 30 June 1986 , 10 % of quotas laid down initially according to the criteria concerned , and to reallocate to other undertakings the quantities of quotas withdrawn ; whereas , further , there is justification for authorizing the Republic of Italy and the French Republic in respect of its overseas departments , having regard to their respective special situations in the sugar beet crop sector on the one hand and in the sugar cane crop sector on the other , to amend without limits the quotas of undertakings established in these regions where quotas are transferred within these regions on the basis of restructuring plans ;

Whereas , since the production quotas allocated to undertakings constitute a means of guaranteeing producers Community prices and an outlet for their production , quota transfers should be made taking into consideration the interests of all the parties concerned and in particular those of sugar beet and sugar cane producers ;

Whereas , in order to enable the outlets for sugar and isoglucose on the internal market of the Community to be enlarged , it is further appropriate to afford the possibility of putting out of production , within the meaning of the quota system and under conditions to be laid down , all sugar or isoglucose intended for manufacture , in the Community , of products other than foodstuffs ;

Whereas Protocol 7 on ACP sugar containing the text of Protocol 3 on sugar , which appears in the ACP-EEC Convention of Lomé signed on 28 February 1975 and the corresponding declarations annexed to the said Convention , provides for a system of preferential imports of cane sugar into the Community ; whereas Council Decision 80/1186/EEC ( 5 ) extended the said system to imports of cane sugar originating in the overseas countries and territories ; whereas the Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Republic of India on cane sugar ( 6 ) established a similar system for certain quantities of cane sugar originating in that country ;

Whereas , pursuant to Article 1 of the said Protocol , to Article 1 of the abovementioned Decision , and to Article 1 of the Agreement with India , the implementation of these systems of preferential imports must be carried out within the framework of the common organization of the market in sugar ;

Whereas the preferential nature of these systems requires that the import levies provided for in the framework of the common organization of the market in sugar should not apply to imports made under these systems ;

Whereas it is necessary to create the means for ensuring that raw cane sugar imported under the said preferential systems can be refined under the most equitable conditions of competition ;

Whereas the common organization of the markets in the sugar sector 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 provisions of this Regulation , a procedure should be provided for establishing close cooperation between Member States and the Commission within a Management Committee for Sugar ;

Whereas the establishment of a Community market for the sugar sector would be jeopardized by the granting of certain aids ; whereas , therefore , the provisions of the Treaty which allow the assessment of aids granted by the Member States and the prohibition of those which are incompatible with the common market should be made to apply to sugars ; whereas , however , the production of beet and sugar in Italy and that of cane and sugar in the French overseas departments continue to experience difficulties , particularly in the application of modern production techniques or for structural reasons ; whereas these crops and their associated manufacturing industries are important for these regions and even essential as regards the economy of the French overseas departments ; whereas it is therefore appropriate to authorize the Member States concerned to grant national aids to these sectors and for certain regions of Italy on certain conditions and on a decreasing scale ; whereas the situation existing with regard to the interest rate in Italy must be taken into account ;

Whereas the transition to the system resulting from 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 changeover from one marketing vear to the next or during the same marketing year ; whereas , therefore , provision should be made for the possibility of adopting appropriate measures ;

Whereas Community membership of the International Sugar Agreement might require special measures to allow the Community to implement the obligations arising from such membership ; whereas , for this purpose , provision should be made for the appropriate measures to be adopted within the framework of this Regulation ;

Whereas , pursuant to Articles 2 and 3 of Council Regulation ( EEC ) No 729/70 of 21 April 1970 on the financing of the common agricultural policy ( 7 ) , as last amended by Regulation ( EEC ) No 3509/80 ( 8 ) , the expenses incurred by the Member States in meeting obligations arising from the application of this Regulation devolve upon the Community ;

Whereas Council Regulation ( EEC ) No 3330/74 of 19 December 1974 on the common organization of the market in sugar ( 9 ) , as last amended by Regulation ( EEC ) No 3455/80 ( 10 ) , Council Regulation ( EEC ) No 1111/77 of 17 May 1977 laying down common provisions for isoglucose ( 11 ) , as last amended by Regulation ( EEC ) No 387/81 ( 12 ) , and certain provisions of Council Regulation ( EEC ) No 3331/74 of 19 December 1974 on the allocation and alteration of the basic quotas for sugar ( 13 ) , as last amended by Regulation ( EEC ) No 1292/79 ( 14 ) , should be repealed ,

TRADE WITH THIRD COUNTRIES

Article 13

1 . All imports into and exports out of the Community of the products listed in Article 1 ( 1 ) ( a ) , ( b ) , ( c ) , ( d ) , ( f ) and ( g ) shall be conditional upon the presentation of an import licence or an export licence issued by the Member States to any applicant irrespective of the place of his establishment in the Community .

Where a levy or a refund is fixed in advance , the advance fixing shall be noted on the licence which shall serve as a supporting document for such advance fixing .

The licence shall be valid throughout the Community .

The issue of a licence shall be conditional upon the lodging of a deposit which will guarantee that importation or exportation will be effected during the period of validity of the licence and which will be forfeit in whole or in part if the transaction is not effected , or is only partially effected , within that period .

2 . The system provided for in this Article may be extended to the products listed in Article 1 ( 1 ) ( e ) in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 41 .

Article 14

1 . A Community threshold price shall be fixed annually for each of the following products : white sugar , raw sugar and molasses .

2 . The threshold price for white sugar shall be equal to the target price plus the costs , calculated at a flat rate , of transport from the Community area having the largest surplus to the most distant deficit consumption area in the Community , plus a flat-rate amount which takes into account the levy referred to in Article 8 for the marketing year in question . The threshold price shall apply to the same standard quality as that specified for the intervention price for white sugar .

3 . The threshold price for raw sugar shall be derived from that for white sugar , taking account of flat-rate amounts for processing and yield . The threshold price shall apply to the same standard quality as that specified for the intervention price for raw sugar .

4 . The threshold price for molasses shall be fixed so that the receipts from sales of molasses can reach the level of those undertakings ' receipts which are taken into account pursuant to Article 4 when the basic price for beet is being fixed . It shall apply to a standard quality .

5 . The Council , acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission , shall fix each year the threshold prices for the products referred to in paragraph 1 at the same time as the intervention price for white sugar .

6 . The standard quality of molasses shall be specified in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 41 .

Article 15

1 . A cif price shall be calculated for a Community frontier crossing point for white sugar , raw sugar and molasses . This price shall be calculated on the basis of the most-favourable purchasing opportunities for each product on the world market , based on quotations on prices on that market , as adjusted to allow for any deviations from the standard quality to which the threshold price applies .

2 . Where free quotations on the world market are not a factor determining the offer price and where that price is less than world market prices , a special cif price calculated on the basis of the offer price and applicable solely to the imports in question shall be substituted for the cif price .

3 . The Council , acting by a qualified majority on a proposal from the Commission , shall determine the frontier crossing point concerned .

4 . Detailed rules for calculating the cif prices shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 41 . The adjustments referred to in paragraph 1 shall be fixed in accordance with the same procedure .

Article 16

1 . A levy shall be charged on imports of the products listed in Article 1 ( 1 ) ( a ) , ( b ) , ( c ) , ( d ) , ( f ) and ( g ) .

2 . The levies on white sugar , raw sugar and molasses shall be equal to the threshold price minus the cif price . For flavoured and coloured sugars obtained from white sugar or raw sugar the levy on white sugar shall apply .

3 . The levy on raw sugar shall , where necessary , be adjusted according to the yield . The levy on raw sugar imported for purposes other than refining shall be the levy on white sugar if the latter is higher than the levy on raw sugar . If the levy on white sugar is higher than the levy on raw sugar then raw sugar imported for refining shall be subject to customs control or to an administrative check offering equivalent guarantees .

4 . The levy on the products listed in Article 1 ( 1 ) ( b ) shall be calculated as a flat rate on the basis of the sucrose content of each of these products and the levy on white sugar .

For purposes other than the manufacture of sugar , partial exemption from the import levy may be allowed as a temporary measure in special cases in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 41 .

For the purpose of this recording , if an undertaking benefited from the partial or total transfer to it of the basic quota of another undertaking then the corresponding production of the latter undertaking achieved during the abovementioned marketing years and before the transfer became effective shall be regarded as production by the undertaking which benefited from the transfer . The B quota of the undertaking shall be equal to the average of the three highest annual productions recorded in the abovementioned marketing years .

Nevertheless , subject to Article 25 :

( a ) without prejudice to the provisions under ( b ) , the B quota of an undertaking shall not be less than 10 % of its basic quota referred to in the first subparagraph of paragraph 3 , and the B quota of the undertaking situated in Greece shall not be less than 10 % of its A quota ;

( b ) if the sum of the B quotas determined by the application of the first subparagraph and of the provisions in ( a ) is not equal to the quantity specified in II ( b ) of paragraph 2 for the region concerned then such B quotas shall be adjusted by a coefficient representing the ratio between the said sum and the corresponding specified quantity ;

( c ) the B quota of each sugar-producing undertaking established in the Member States which has applied the provisions of Article 32 of Regulation ( EEC ) No 3330/74 shall be determined taking into account the production of the undertaking effected over and above its basic quota during the period referred to in the first subparagraph without the sum of the B quotas thus determined exceeding the basic B quantity in question fixed in II ( a ) of paragraph 2 .

5 . The B quota of each isoglucose-producing undertaking shall be equal to 23.55 % of its A quota as determined in accordance with , as the case may be , the first or third subparagraph of paragraph 3 .

For each undertaking other than those referred to in the third subparagraph of paragraph 3 , however , the B quota shall not be less than its production of isoglucose during the period 1 July 1979 to 30 June 1980 outside its basic quota but within its maximum quota .
