COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 2999/92 of 15 October 1992 laying down detailed rules for the application of the specific measures for the supply of processed fruit and vegetable products to Madeira

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1600/92 of 15 June 1992 concerning specific measures for the Azores and Madeira relating to certain agricultural products (1), and in particular Article 10 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 1676/85 of 11 June 1985 on the value of the unit of account and the conversion rates to be applied for the purposes of the common agricultural policy (2), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2205/90 (3), and in particular Article 12 thereof,

Whereas, in the application of Articles 2 and 3 of Regulation (EEC) No 1600/92, it is necessary to determine the quantities of certain processed fruit and vegetable products in the forecast supply balance, falling within CN code 2008 and qualifying for exemption from duty on direct imports from third countries or for aid for consignments from the rest of the Community;

Whereas the amount of the abovementioned aid for the supply of processed fruit products to Madeira should be fixed; whereas that aid must be fixed taking account, in particular, of the cost of supply from the world market, the conditions resulting from that region's geographical situation and current prices for exports to the latter;

Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1696/92 (4), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2132/92 (5), lays down common detailed rules for implementation of the specific arrangements for the supply of certain agricultural products to Madeira; whereas it is appropriate to lay down additional detailed rules in line with current commercial practice in the processed fruit and vegetable products sector, in particular regarding the duration of the validity of licences and certificates and the amount of the securities ensuring operators' compliance with their obligations;

Whereas, with a view to sound management of the supply arrangements, provision should be made for a timetable for the lodging of licence and certificate applications and for a period of reflection for their issue;

Whereas, in application of Regulation (EEC) No 1600/92, the supply arrangements apply from 1 July 1992; whereas provision should be made for the detailed rules for their implementation to apply as soon as possible;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Processed Fruit and Vegetables,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1. For the purposes of applying Articles 2 and 3 of Regulation (EEC) No 1600/92, the quantities covered by the forecast supply balance of processed fruit products qualifying, as the case may be, for exemption from duty on direct import from third countries or for Community aid shall be as set out in the Annex.

2. Without prejudice to a review of the supply balance during the period concerned, the quantities laid down for the various products listed in the Annex may be exceeded by up to 20 % provided that the overall quantity is not exceeded.

Article 2

For the purposes of Article 3 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 1600/92, aid amounting to ECU 10 per 100 kilograms shall be granted for the products and quantities covered by the forecast supply balance and coming from the Community market.

3. Where licences or certificates are issued for quantities lower than the quantities applied for pursuant to Article 5 of Regulation (EEC) No 1696/92, the operator may withdraw his application in writing within three working days of the date of issue; the security covering the licence or certificate shall be released in such cases.

Article 6

The duration of validity of certificates and licences shall expire on the last day of the month following that of their issue.

Article 7

The aid provided for in Article 2 shall be paid in respect of quantities actually supplied.

The rate to be applied for conversion into national currency of the amount of the aid shall be the agricultural conversion rate in force on the first day of the month of submission of the aid certificate application.
