COMMISSION DECISION of 23 June 1995 approving the single programming document for Community structural measures for improving the processing and marketing conditions for agricultural products in Bremen (Federal Republic of Germany), in respect of Objective 5a, covering the period between 1994 and 1999 (Only the German text is authentic) (95/256/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 866/90 of 29 March 1990 on improving the processing and marketing conditions for agricultural products (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2843/94 (2), and in particular Article 10a thereof,

Whereas on 29 April 1994 the German Government submitted to the Commission the single programming document referred to in Article 10a of Regulation (EEC) No 866/90 for the Land of Bremen, supplemented by additional information sent on 29 September 1994 and 21 February 1995; whereas that document contains the plans designed to improve the structures relating to the various product sectors referred to in Article 2 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 866/90 and the aid applications referred to in Article 10a of that Regulation;

Whereas the single programming document meets the conditions of and contains the information required in Article 1 (3) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 860/94 of 18 April 1994 on plans and applications in the form of operational programmes for aid from the Guidance Section of the EAGGF for investments for improving the processing and marketing conditions for agricultural and forestry products (3);

Whereas the single programming document was drawn up in agreement with the Member State concerned under the partnership as defined in Article 4 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2052/88 of 24 June 1988 on the tasks of the Structural Funds and their effectiveness and on coordination of activities between themselves and with the operations of the European Investment Bank and the other existing financial instruments (4), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 3193/94 (5);

Whereas the second indent of Article 2 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1866/90 of 2 July 1990 on arrangements for using the ecu for the purposes of the budgetary management of the Structural Funds (6), as amended by Regulation (EC) No 2745/94 (7), provides that in Commission decisions approving single programming documents, the Community assistance decided upon for the entire period and the annual breakdown thereof are to be set out in ecus, at prices for the year in which the decision is taken, and are to be subject to indexation; whereas the annual breakdown must be compatible with the progressive increase in commitment appropriations as set out in Annex II to Regulation (EEC) No 2052/88 as amended; whereas the indexation is to be based on a single rate per year corresponding to the rates applied annually to the Community budget on the basis of the mechanisms for technical adjustment of the financial perspectives;

Whereas Article 1 of the Financial Regulation of 21 December 1977 applicable to the general budget of the European Communities (8), as last amended by Council Regulation (ECSC, EC, Euratom) No 2730/94 (9), provides that the legal commitments entered into for measures extending over more than one financial year are to contain a time limit for implementation which must be specified to the recipient in due form when the aid is granted;

Whereas, during the implementation of the single programming document, the Member State will ensure that the individual projects included therein will conform with the selection criteria for investments for improving the processing and marketing conditions for agricultural products currently in force, in application of Article 8 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 866/90;

Whereas in order to ensure clarity over the whole of the conditions governing the implementation of Regulation (EEC) No 866/90 in Germany this Member State will submit to the Commission, before 15 June 1995, a consolidated version of the single planning document showing the agreement reached by the partnership, as set out within the document annexed to the present Decision (10); whereas this consolidated version must contain all the information required in accordance with Article 10a of Regulation (EEC) No 866/90 and Articles 8, 9, 10 and 14 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88 (11);

Whereas Article 9 (3) of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88 states that the Member States will supply the Commission with the appropriate financial information to permit it to verify that the principle of additionality has been respected; whereas analysis of the information supplied by the German authorities shows that this principle has been taken into account; whereas supplementary verification of the respect of the principle should be made on the basis of information to be supplied with the consolidated version of the single programming document; whereas, in addition, the verification that this principle continues to be respected will be pursued in the framework of partnership during the implementation of the single programming document; whereas these verifications are essential for the continuation of EAGGF aid to the measures concerned in the present Decision;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Agricultural Structures and Rural Development,
