Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 727/2014 of 30 June 2014 initiating a ‘new exporter’ review of Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1389/2011 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of trichloroisocyanuric acid originating in the People's Republic of China, repealing the duty with regard to imports from one exporter in this country and making these imports subject to registration
1.7.2014 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 192/42 COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) No 727/2014 of 30 June 2014 initiating a ‘new exporter’ review of Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1389/2011 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of trichloroisocyanuric acid originating in the People's Republic of China, repealing the duty with regard to imports from one exporter in this country and making these imports subject to registration THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION , Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1225/2009 of 30 November 2009 on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Community (1) (‘the basic Regulation’) and in particular Article 11(4) thereof, After informing the Member States, Whereas: 1.   REQUEST (1) The European Commission (‘Commission’) has received a request for a ‘new exporter’ review pursuant to Article 11(4) of the basic Regulation. (2) The request was lodged on 4 January 2014 by Juancheng Kangtai Chemical Co. Ltd (‘the applicant’), an exporting producer in the People's Republic of China (‘PRC’) of trichloroisocyanuric acid. 2.   PRODUCT (3) The product under review is trichloroisocyanuric acid and preparations thereof (TCCA), also referred to as ‘symclosene’ under the international non-proprietary name (INN), currently falling within CN codes ex 2933 69 80 and ex 3808 94 20 (TARIC codes 2933698070 and 3808942020), and originating in the PRC (‘the product under review’). 3.   EXISTING MEASURES (4) The measures currently in force are a definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1389/2011 (2) under which imports into the Union of the product under review originating in the PRC, including the product produced by the applicant, are subject to a definitive anti-dumping duty of 42,6 % with the exception of several companies specially mentioned in Article 1(2) of that Regulation which are subject to individual duty rates. 4.   GROUNDS (5) The applicant claims that it did not export the product under review to the Union during the period of investigation on which the anti-dumping measures were based, i.e. the period from 1 April 2003 to 31 March 2004 (‘the original investigation period’). (6) Furthermore, the applicant claims that it is not related to any of the exporting producers of the product under review which are subject to the above-mentioned anti-dumping measures. (7) The applicant further claims that it has begun exporting the product under review to the Union after the end of the original investigation period. 5.   PROCEDURE (8) Union producers known to be concerned have been informed of the request for a review and have been given an opportunity to comment. (9) Having examined the evidence available, the Commission concludes that there is sufficient evidence to justify the initiation of a ‘new exporter’ review, pursuant to Article 11(4) of the basic Regulation, with a view to determine the applicant's individual margin of dumping and, should dumping be found, the level of the duty to which its imports of the product under review into the Union shall be subject. (10) If it is determined that the applicant fulfils the requirements to have an individual duty established, it may be necessary to amend the rate of duty currently applicable to imports of the product under review from companies not individually mentioned in Article 1(2) of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1389/2011. (a)   Questionnaires (11) In order to obtain information it deems necessary for its investigation, the Commission will send a questionnaire to the applicant. (b)   Collection of information and holding of hearings (12) All interested parties are hereby invited to make their views known in writing and to provide supporting evidence. (13) Furthermore, the Commission may hear interested parties, provided that they make a request in writing showing that there are particular reasons why they should be heard. (c)   Selection of the market economy country (14) Since the applicant expressly waived the right to claim that market economy conditions prevail for it, normal value shall be determined on the basis of Article 2(7)(a) of the basic Regulation. Therefore, an appropriate market economy country will be used for the purpose of establishing normal value in respect of the PRC. The Commission envisages using Japan again for this purpose as was done in the investigation which led to the imposition of measures on imports of the product under review from the PRC. Interested parties are hereby invited to comment on the appropriateness of this choice within the specific time limit set in Article 4(3) of this Regulation. According to the information available to the Commission, other market economy suppliers of the Union may be located, inter alia, in Switzerland, Malaysia and Indonesia. The Commission will examine whether there is production and sales of the product under investigation in those market economy third countries for which there are indications that production of the product under investigation is taking place. 6.   REPEAL OF THE DUTY IN FORCE AND REGISTRATION OF IMPORTS (15) Pursuant to Article 11(4) of the basic Regulation, the anti-dumping duty in force should be repealed with regard to imports of the product under review which are produced and sold for export to the Union by the applicant. At the same time, such imports should be made subject to registration in accordance with Article 14(5) of the basic Regulation, in order to ensure that, should the review result in a finding of dumping in respect of the applicant, anti-dumping duties can be levied retroactively to the date of the initiation of the review. The amount of the applicant's possible future liabilities cannot be estimated at this stage of the proceeding. 7.   TIME-LIMITS (16) In the interest of sound administration, time-limits should be stated within which: — interested parties may make themselves known to the Commission, present their views in writing and submit any information to be taken into account during the investigation, — interested parties may make a written request to be heard by the Commission, — interested parties may comment on the appropriateness of Japan which is envisaged as a market-economy country for the purpose of establishing normal value, — Attention is drawn to the fact that the exercise of most procedural rights set out in the basic Regulation depends on the party's making itself known within the time-limits indicated in Article 4 of this Regulation. 8.   COMMUNICATION WITH INTERESTED PARTIES (17) Interested parties are invited to make all submissions and requests by e-mail including scanned powers of attorney and certification sheets, with the exception of voluminous replies which shall be submitted on a CD-ROM or DVD by hand or by registered mail. Their use of e-mail will constitute an agreement for the communication by e-mail and acceptance of the rules specified in the communication instructions with interested parties which are published on the website of the Directorate-General for Trade: http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs/2011/june/tradoc_148003.pdf. The interested parties must indicate their name, address, telephone and a valid e-mail address and they should ensure that the provided e-mail address is a functioning official business e-mail which is checked on a daily basis. Once contact details are provided, the Commission will communicate with interested parties by e-mail only, unless they explicitly request to receive all documents from the Commission by another means of communication or unless the nature of the document to be sent requires the use of a registered mail. For further rules and information concerning correspondence with the Commission including principles that apply to submissions by e-mail, interested parties should consult the communication instructions with interested parties referred to above. (18) All written submissions, including the information requested in this Regulation, questionnaire replies and correspondence provided by interested parties on a confidential basis must be labelled as ‘Limited’ and, in accordance with Article 19(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1225/2009, must be accompanied by a non-confidential version, which must be labelled ‘For inspection by interested parties’. European Commission Directorate-General for Trade Directorate H Office: N105 8/21 1049 Bruxelles/Brussel BELGIQUE/BELGIË E-mail: trade-tcca-review-bis@ec.europa.eu 9.   NON-COOPERATION (19) In cases in which any interested party refuses access to or does not provide the necessary information within the time-limits, or significantly impedes the investigation, findings, affirmative or negative, may be made in accordance with Article 18 of the basic Regulation, on the basis of the facts available. (20) Where it is found that any interested party has supplied false or misleading information, the information shall be disregarded and use may be made of facts available. (21) If an interested party does not cooperate or cooperates only partially and findings are therefore based on the facts available in accordance with Article 18 of the basic Regulation, the result may be less favourable to that party than if it had cooperated. (22) Failure to give a computerised response shall not be deemed to constitute non-cooperation, provided that the interested party shows that presenting the response as requested would result in an unreasonable extra burden or unreasonable additional cost. The interested party should immediately contact the Commission. 10.   SCHEDULE OF THE INVESTIGATION (23) The investigation will be concluded, pursuant to Article 11(5) of the basic Regulation, within nine months of the date of initiation of this review. 11.   PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA (24) It is noted that any personal data collected in this investigation will be treated in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2000 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community institutions and bodies and on the free movement of such data (3). 12.   HEARING OFFICER (25) Interested parties may request the intervention of the Hearing Officer of the Directorate-General for Trade. The Hearing Officer acts as an interface between the interested parties and the Commission investigation services. The Hearing Officer reviews requests for access to the file, disputes regarding the confidentiality of documents, requests for extension of time-limits and requests by third parties to be heard. The Hearing Officer may organise a hearing with an individual interested party and mediate to ensure that the interested party's rights of defence are being fully exercised. The Hearing Officer will also provide opportunities for a hearing involving parties to take place which would allow different views to be presented and rebuttal arguments offered. (26) A request for a hearing with the Hearing Officer should be made in writing and should specify the reasons for the request. For hearings on issues pertaining to the initial stage of the investigation the request must be submitted within 15 days of the date of entry into force of this Regulation. Thereafter, a request to be heard must be submitted within specific deadlines set by the Commission in its communication with the parties. (27) For further information and contact details interested parties may consult the Hearing Officer's web pages on the Directorate-General for Trade's website: http://ec.europa.eu/commission_2010-2014/degucht/contact/hearing-officer, A review of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1389/2011 is hereby initiated pursuant to Article 11(4) of Regulation (EC) No 1225/2009 in order to determine if and to what extent the imports of trichloroisocyanuric acid and preparations thereof, also referred to as ‘symclosene’ under the international non-proprietary name (INN), currently falling within within CN codes ex 2933 69 80 and ex 3808 94 20 (TARIC codes 2933698070 and 3808942020), originating in the People's Republic of China, produced and sold for export to the Union by Juancheng Kangtai Chemical Co. Ltd (TARIC additional code A101) should be subject to the anti-dumping duty imposed by Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1389/2011.

REGULATION (EEC) No 2481/75 OF THE COUNCIL of 29 September 1975 amending Regulation (EEC) No 2511/69 laying down special measures for improving the production and marketing of Community citrus fruits THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 43 thereof; Having regard to the proposal from the Commission; Having regard to the Opinion of the European Parliament (1); Whereas Council Regulation (EEC) No 2511/69 (2) of 9 December 1969 laying down special measures for improving the production and marketing of Community citrus fruits, as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 175/73 (3), provides for the granting of additional aid to small farmers to compensate for part of the loss of income caused by replanting; Whereas one of the conditions for the granting of this aid is that the area of the undertaking does not exceed five hectares ; whereas, when the total area of the undertaking exceeds five hectares but the area fit for agricultural use does not exceed that limit since the rest of the land is not cultivable, the farmer's economic situation is the same as in the cases mentioned in the Regulation ; whereas all farmers of an area fit for agricultural use not exceeding five hectares should receive identical treatment; Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 2511/69 set up in particular a scheme of financial compensation to promote sales of Community-produced oranges and mandarins on Community import markets by means of contracts ensuring regular supplies for these markets; Whereas experience has shown that the contractual scheme referred to above has not had the desired results as regards the growth of Community outlets for the products in question ; whereas, moreover, the increase in competition from certain producer third countries can only make it more difficult to market Community-produced citrus fruit on the Community market; Whereas to counter these difficulties Regulation (EEC) No 2511/69 should be modified by discontinuing the contractual scheme and increasing the amounts of financial compensation ; whereas this compensation should be extended to include clementines; Whereas during the recent marketing years there have also been problems as regards the distribution of Community lemon production on the Community import markets ; whereas, therefore, it is advisable, as a precautionary measure, to grant financial compensation in respect of this product for the remainder of the 1975/76 marketing year; Whereas, in order to ensure the effectiveness of such a system, provision should be made for bringing up to date the amounts fixed in respect of oranges, mandarins and clementines, taking into account the trend of the basic and buying-in prices for the products concerned, The first indent of Article 4 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 2511/69 shall be replaced by the following: "- the area of their undertaking which is fit for agricultural use does not exceed five hectares," The text of Article 6 of Regulation (EEC) No 2511/69 shall be replaced by the following: (1)Opinion delivered on September 1975 (not yet published in the Official Journal).

However, as regards lemons, this financial compensation shall only be granted for the 1975/76 marketing year." The text of Article 7 of Regulation (EEC) No 2511/69 shall be replaced by the following: "1. For the 1975/76 marketing year the financial compensation shall be fixed as follows: - 7.8 u.a./100 kg net for oranges of the Moro, Tarocco, Ovale calabrese, Belladonna, Navel and Valencia late varieties, - 6.7 u.a./100 kg net for oranges of the Sanguinello variety, - 4.4 u.a./100 kg net for oranges of the Sanguigno and Biondo comune varieties, - 6.7 u.a./100 kg net for mandarins, - 3.9 u.a./100 kg net for clementines, - 4.7 u.a./100 kg net for lemons. 2. In subsequent marketing years the amount of financial compensation for oranges, mandarins and clementines shall be fixed each year before 1 August for the marketing year beginning during the following year according to the procedure laid down in Article 43 (2) of the Treaty, taking into account both the previous levels of this amount and the trend of the basic and buying-in prices of the products concerned. However, the percentage of the variation of the financial compensation by comparison with the preceding marketing year may not exceed the percentage of the variation of the basic and buying-in prices. 3. Financial compensation shall only be granted in respect of products belonging to quality classes Extra and I."

2010/8/EU, Euratom: Commission Decision of 22 December 2009 declining the solution proposed by Austria under Article 10 of Council Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 1553/89 relating to the calculation of a compensation to the VAT own resources base resulting from the restriction of the right to deduct VAT under Article 176 of Council Directive 2006/112/EC (notified under document C(2009) 10428)
7.1.2010 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 3/22 COMMISSION DECISION of 22 December 2009 declining the solution proposed by Austria under Article 10 of Council Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 1553/89 relating to the calculation of a compensation to the VAT own resources base resulting from the restriction of the right to deduct VAT under Article 176 of Council Directive 2006/112/EC (notified under document C(2009) 10428) (Only the German text is authentic) (2010/8/EU, Euratom) THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION , Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 1553/89 of 29 May 1989 on the definitive uniform arrangements for the collection of own resources accruing from value added tax (1), and in particular Article 10(2) thereof, After consulting the Advisory Committee on Own Resources, Whereas: (1) The compensation to the VAT resources base is based on Article 6(4) of Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 1553/89, which provides that where a Member State restricts or excludes, on the basis of Article 176 of Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 on the common system of value added tax (2), the right to deduct input VAT, then the VAT own resources base may be determined as if the right of deduction had not been restricted. This applies only in respect of the purchase of passenger cars and their fuel used for business purposes, and of expenditure relating to the lease, hire, maintenance and repair of such cars. Austria proposed a multipart draft solution for such compensation to its VAT own resources base, which includes a method for six sub-categories. (2) Pursuant to Article 13(3) of Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 1553/89, the solution proposed by Austria was examined in its entirety by the Advisory Committee on Own Resources at its meeting on 10 December 2009. The examination revealed a difference of opinion in the Committee regarding one of the sub-categories of the solution. That sub-category concerns the methodology proposed for the calculation of the private use component of the compensation to the harmonised VAT own resources base. A draft decision declining that sub-category of the solution presented by Austria was submitted to the Advisory Committee on Own Resources which delivered a positive opinion on 10 December 2009. (3) When calculating private use, in the absence of actual data, alternative methods can be used. To guarantee that these methods contribute to uniformity in the calculation of the compensation they should be based on generally accepted assumptions. (4) Austria requires taxable persons to administer actual data about the private use of business cars. However, for reasons of administrative simplicity, Austria has proposed a solution for the calculation of private use incorporating general statistical data combined with depreciation rules devised for non-harmonised corporate income tax purposes. Since the proposed solution results in a private use element significantly lower than the proportion used by other Member States, it is contradictory to the required uniformity in the calculation of the compensation. The solution proposed by Austria concerning the calculation of the private use proportion of cars acquired by businesses needs therefore to be declined, The solution proposed by Austria concerning the calculation of the private use proportion of cars acquired by businesses is declined. This Decision is addressed to the Republic of Austria.

2014/236/EU: Commission Implementing Decision of 24 April 2014 concerning a Union financial contribution towards surveillance and other emergency measures implemented in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland against African swine fever (notified under document C(2014) 2551)
26.4.2014 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 125/86 COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION of 24 April 2014 concerning a Union financial contribution towards surveillance and other emergency measures implemented in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland against African swine fever (notified under document C(2014) 2551) (Only the Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian and Polish texts are authentic) (2014/236/EU) THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION , Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, Having regard to Council Decision 2009/470/EC of 25 May 2009 on expenditure in the veterinary field (1), and in particular Article 8 thereof, Having regard to Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 966/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 on the financial rules applicable to the general budget of the Union and repealing Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002 (2), and in particular Article 84 thereof, Whereas: (1) African swine fever (ASF) is an infectious, usually fatal, viral disease of domestic and feral pigs which causes serious disturbances to intra-Union trade in and export to third countries of live pigs and products derived from animals of the porcine species. (2) Following the confirmation of ASF in Georgia in 2007, the disease spread to the Russian Federation where numerous outbreaks of that disease have been reported in pigs and wild boar throughout the European part of Russia. In June 2013, Belarus reported the confirmation of an outbreak of ASF in backyard pigs in the region of Grodno, some forty kilometres from the Lithuanian border and close to the border with Poland. (3) Commission Implementing Decision 2013/498/EU (3) provided for a Union financial contribution towards surveillance and other emergency measures against ASF implemented in 2013 in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, which are the Member States at direct threat of ASF introduction. (4) In January 2014 the disease has been reported in the wild boar population in Ukraine and it is still spreading in Belarus and in the Russian Federation. Furthermore, in January 2014 two ASF cases were detected in the wild boar population in Lithuania and after few days two further cases were reported in the wild boar in Poland. In both Member States the disease occurred at the border with Belarus. Therefore, the ASF situation in countries bordering the European Union represents a persistent threat to pig holdings within the Union, due to the fact that the virus may be introduced into Member States bordering the infected third countries through wild boar entering Union territory from infected areas, but also through vehicles which have transported live animals or through the unauthorised introduction into the Union of products derived from animals of the porcine species. (5) The risk of ASF introduction into the Union is higher for Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland due to the occurrence and the evolution of this disease in the bordering territory of Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine. These Member States have informed the Commission and the other Member States of the measures that they intend to adopt to strengthen the protection of their territories and of other Member States. (6) During 2013 Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland implemented surveillance for the early detection of ASF both in wild boar and domestic pigs. In order to better prevent ASF, certain surveillance activities need to be carried out in the territory of those Member States. (7) Cleansing and disinfection of vehicles that were possibly in contact with the ASF virus is one of the main precautionary measures against the entry of ASF into the Union. Therefore, Commission Implementing Decision 2013/426/EU (4) lays down certain measures to prevent the introduction into the Union of ASF from Belarus and the Russian Federation and establishes that vehicles which have transported live animals and which enter the Union from infected areas are appropriately cleansed and disinfected. (8) Notwithstanding the provisions of Commission Regulation (EC) No 206/2009 (5), the risk of ASF introduction into the Union by personal consignments containing pig products sent by post or carried in the baggage of travellers arriving in particular from Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine, is higher than negligible and requires additional actions and controls at the points of entry. (9) In addition, a wide range of stakeholders including veterinarians, professional and non-professional farmers, truck drivers, custom agents, passengers and the general public should be made aware of the risks of ASF introduction and its consequences by means of well-targeted awareness campaigns to raise disease awareness and preparedness in the framework of the contingency plans drawn up in accordance with Council Directive 2002/60/EC (6) to ensure a rapid response should ASF be introduced. (10) In 2014 ASF has been detected in the wild boar Lithuania and Poland and the two Member States are directly threatened by the presence of ASF across the border in Belarus. In order to minimise the risk of disease spread on their territory, Lithuania and Poland intend to decrease the density of susceptible hosts in low bio-security pig holdings of the infected area by promoting the slaughter of pigs and preventing restocking of pig holdings for at least one year. In December 2013 Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland submitted their respective plans and cost estimates for the implementation of emergency measures during 2014 in the areas considered at higher risk of introduction of ASF from Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine. These plans have been examined by the Commission for Union financial contribution and were found to comply with Directive 2002/60/EC. (11) The actions undertaken by Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland for disease surveillance, cleansing and disinfection of vehicles and for the organisation of awareness campaigns are co-financed at a rate of 50 %. (12) The actions undertaken by Lithuania and Poland to decrease the density of pigs in the infected areas at the border with Belarus should be co-financed at a rate of 30 %. (13) As the planned measures submitted by Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland for emergency measures against the introduction of ASF from Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine to be carried out in 2014 are a sufficiently detailed framework in the meaning of Article 94 of the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1268/2012 (7), the present decision constitutes a financing decision for the expenditure provided for in the work programme for grants. (14) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health, 1.   In the framework of the emergency measures for the protection against ASF taken by Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland in 2014, those Member States shall be entitled to a specific contribution from the Union to the expenditure incurred for the implementation of the activities described in paragraphs 2 and 3, and planned for the period from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014. 2.   The financial contribution by the Union shall be at the rate of 50 % of the costs incurred and paid for the implementation the following activities: (a) sampling of domestic pigs; (b) sampling of wild boar; (c) ELISA tests; (d) PCR and Sequencing tests; (e) purchase of equipment and disinfectant for cleansing and disinfection; (f) purchase of equipment especially used for disposal of animal carcasses; (g) purchase of equipment for carrying out virological laboratory tests; (h) awareness campaigns. 3.   The financial contribution by the Union shall be at the rate of 30 % of the costs incurred and paid by Lithuania and Poland for compensating pig owner for losses caused by early slaughter of pigs in the infected areas. 1.   The maximum of the costs to be reimbursed to the Member States referred to in Article 1(1) for the activities referred to in Article 1(2) points (a), (b), (c) and (d) shall on average not exceed: (a) EUR 0,5 per domestic pig sampled; (b) EUR 5 per wild boar sampled; (c) EUR 2 per ELISA test; (d) EUR 10 per PCR and Sequencing test. 2.   The maximum of the costs to be reimbursed for the activity referred to in Article 1(2) point (e) shall on average not exceed: (a) EUR 6 000 for Estonia; (b) EUR 58 000 for Latvia; (c) EUR 950 000 for Lithuania; (d) EUR 102 100 for Poland. 3.   The maximum of the costs to be reimbursed for the activity referred to in Article 1(2) point (f) shall not exceed: (a) EUR 100 000 for Lithuania; (b) EUR 150 000 for Poland. 4.   The maximum of the costs to be reimbursed for the activity referred to in Article 1(2) point (g) shall not exceed: EUR 75 000 for Lithuania. 5.   The maximum of the costs to be reimbursed for the activity referred to in Article 1(2) point (h) shall on average not exceed: (a) EUR 1 500 for Estonia; (b) EUR 15 000 for Latvia; (c) EUR 75 000 for Lithuania; (d) EUR 11 250 for Poland. 6.   The financial contribution by the Union to the Member States referred to in Article 1(3) shall not exceed: (a) EUR 225 000 for Lithuania; (b) EUR 337 500 for Poland. 7.   The financial contribution by the Union to the Member States referred to in Article 1(1) shall not exceed: (a) EUR 27 000 for Estonia; (b) EUR 190 000 for Latvia; (c) EUR 1 948 000 for Lithuania; (d) EUR 1 341 000 for Poland. 8.   The expenditure eligible for a financial contribution by the Union for the measures referred to in points c) and d) of paragraph 1 shall be limited to the costs incurred by the Member States for: (a) the purchase of test kits, reagents and all consumables identifiable and especially used for carrying out the laboratory tests; (b) personnel, whatever the status, specifically allocated entirely or in part for carrying out the tests in the premises of the laboratory, limited to actual salaries plus social security charges and other statutory costs included in the remuneration; (c) overheads equal to 7 % of the sum of the costs referred to in (a) and (b). 1.   The financial contribution by the Union for the measures referred to in Article 1 shall be granted provided that the Member States concerned: (a) implement the activities and measures as described in their plans; (b) implement the measures in accordance with the relevant provisions of Union law, including rules on competition and on the award of public contracts; (c) forward to the Commission by 30 April 2015 at the latest a final technical report for the measures in accordance with Annex I and a final financial report in accordance with Annex II. 2.   Where a Member State does not comply with paragraph 1, the Commission may reduce the financial contribution by the Union in proportion to the nature and gravity of the infringement, and to the financial loss for the Union. This Decision is addressed to the Republic of Estonia, the Republic of Latvia, the Republic of Lithuania and the Republic of Poland.

Commission Regulation (EC) No 2129/2005 of 22 December 2005 fixing the rates of the refunds applicable to certain cereal and rice products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty
23.12.2005 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 340/39 COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2129/2005 of 22 December 2005 fixing the rates of the refunds applicable to certain cereal and rice products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 of 29 September 2003 on the common organisation of the market in cereals (1), and in particular Article 13(3) thereof, Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003 of 29 September 2003 on the common organisation of the market in rice (2), and in particular Article 14(3) thereof, Whereas: (1) Article 13(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 and Article 14(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003 provide that the difference between quotations or prices on the world market for the products listed in Article 1 of each of those Regulations and the prices within the Community may be covered by an export refund. (2) Commission Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005 of 30 June 2005 implementing Council Regulation (EC) No 3448/93 as regards the system of granting export refunds on certain agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, and the criteria for fixing the amount of such refunds (3), specifies the products for which a rate of refund is to be fixed, to be applied where these products are exported in the form of goods listed in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 or in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003 as appropriate. (3) In accordance with the first paragraph of Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005, the rate of the refund per 100 kilograms for each of the basic products in question is to be fixed each month. (4) The commitments entered into with regard to refunds which may be granted for the export of agricultural products contained in goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty may be jeopardised by the fixing in advance of high refund rates. It is therefore necessary to take precautionary measures in such situations without, however, preventing the conclusion of long-term contracts. The fixing of a specific refund rate for the advance fixing of refunds is a measure which enables these various objectives to be met. (5) Taking into account the settlement between the European Community and the United States of America on Community exports of pasta products to the United States, approved by Council Decision 87/482/EEC (4), it is necessary to differentiate the refund on goods falling within CN codes 1902 11 00 and 1902 19 according to their destination. (6) Pursuant to Article 15(2) and (3) of Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005, a reduced rate of export refund has to be fixed, taking account of the amount of the production refund applicable, pursuant to Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1722/93 (5), for the basic product in question, used during the assumed period of manufacture of the goods. (7) Spirituous beverages are considered less sensitive to the price of the cereals used in their manufacture. However, Protocol 19 of the Act of Accession of the United Kingdom, Ireland and Denmark provides that the necessary measures must be decided to facilitate the use of Community cereals in the manufacture of spirituous beverages obtained from cereals. Accordingly, it is necessary to adapt the refund rate applying to cereals exported in the form of spirituous beverages. (8) The Management Committee for Cereals has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman, The rates of the refunds applicable to the basic products listed in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005 and in Article 1 of Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 or in Article 1 of Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003, and exported in the form of goods listed in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1784/2003 or in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1785/2003 respectively, shall be fixed as set out in the Annex to this Regulation. This Regulation shall enter into force on 23 December 2005. This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

The indicative initial estimated breakdown among the Structural Funds of the total Community assistance available is as follows: - ERDF: EUR 475804351 - ESF: EUR 60833649 3. During implementation of the financing plan, the total cost or Community financing of a given priority may be adjusted in agreement with the Member State by up to 25 % of the total Community contribution to the single programming document throughout the programme period, up to a maximum of EUR 30 million, without altering the total Community contribution referred to in paragraph 1. This Decision is without prejudice to the Commission's position on aid schemes falling within Article 87(1) of the Treaty that are included in this assistance and which it has not yet approved. Submission of the application for assistance, the programme complement or a request for payment by the Member State does not replace the notification required by Article 88(3) of the Treaty. Community financing of State aid falling within Article 87(1) of the Treaty, granted under aid schemes or in individual cases, requires prior approval by the Commission under Article 88(3) of the Treaty, except where the aid falls under the de minimis rule or is exempted under an exemption regulation adopted by the Commission under Council Regulation (EC) No 994/98 of 7 May 1998 on the application of Articles 92 and 93 (now 87 and 88) of the Treaty establishing the European Community to certain categories of horizontal State aid(2). In the absence of such exemption or approval, aid is illegal and subject to the consequences set out in the procedural regulation for State aid, and its part-financing would be treated as an irregularity within the meaning of Articles 38 and 39 of Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999. Consequently, the Commission will not accept requests for interim and final payments under Article 32 of the Regulation for measures being part-financed with new or altered aid, as defined in the procedural regulation for State aid, granted under aid schemes or in individual cases, until such aid has been notified to and formally approved by the Commission. The date from which expenditure shall be eligible is 1 January 2000. The closing date for the eligibility of expenditure shall be 31 December 2008. This date is extended to 30 April 2009 for expenditure incurred by bodies granting assistance under Article 9(l) of Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999. The closing date for the eligibility of expenditure in the regions receiving transitional support shall be 31 December 2007. This Decision is addressed to the Federal Republic of Germany.

Commission Regulation (EC) No 223/2007 of 1 March 2007 fixing the rates of the refunds applicable to certain milk products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty
2.3.2007 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 64/20 COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 223/2007 of 1 March 2007 fixing the rates of the refunds applicable to certain milk products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in milk and milk products (1), and in particular Article 31(3) thereof, Whereas: (1) Article 31(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 provides that the difference between prices in international trade for the products listed in Article 1(a), (b), (c), (d), (e), and (g) of that Regulation and prices within the Community may be covered by an export refund. (2) Commission Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005 of 30 June 2005 implementing Council Regulation (EC) No 3448/93 as regards the system of granting export refunds on certain agricultural products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, and the criteria for fixing the amount of such refunds (2), specifies the products for which a rate of refund is to be fixed, to be applied where these products are exported in the form of goods listed in Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999. (3) In accordance with the first paragraph of Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005, the rate of the refund per 100 kilograms for each of the basic products in question is to be fixed each month. (4) However, in the case of certain milk products exported in the form of goods not covered by Annex I to the Treaty, there is a danger that, if high refund rates are fixed in advance, the commitments entered into in relation to those refunds may be jeopardised. In order to avert that danger, it is therefore necessary to take appropriate precautionary measures, but without precluding the conclusion of long-term contracts. The fixing of specific refund rates for the advance fixing of refunds in respect of those products should enable those two objectives to be met. (5) Article 15(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005 provides that, when the rate of the refund is being fixed, account is to be taken, where appropriate, of production refunds, aids or other measures having equivalent effect applicable in all Member States in accordance with the Regulation on the common organisation of the market in the product in question to the basic products listed in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005 or to assimilated products. (6) Article 12(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 provides for the payment of aid for Community-produced skimmed milk processed into casein if such milk and the casein manufactured from it fulfil certain conditions. (7) Commission Regulation (EC) No 1898/2005 of 9 November 2005 laying down detailed rules for implementing Council Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 as regards measures for the disposal of cream, butter and concentrated butter (3), lays down that butter and cream at reduced prices should be made available to industries which manufacture certain goods. (8) The Management Committee for Milk and Milk Products has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman, The rates of the refunds applicable to the basic products listed in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 1043/2005 and in Article 1 of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999, and exported in the form of goods listed in Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999, shall be fixed as set out in the Annex to this Regulation. This Regulation shall enter into force on 2 March 2007. This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

(3) When an economic operator provides proof or data obtained in accordance with a voluntary scheme that has been recognised by the Commission, to the extent covered by the recognition decision, a Member State should not require the supplier to provide further evidence of compliance with the sustainability criteria. (4) The request to recognise that the ‘Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops’ demonstrates that consignments of biofuel comply with the sustainability criteria set out in Directive 98/70/EC and Directive 2009/28/EC was first submitted to the Commission on 16 May 2011. The updated version of the scheme was submitted on 7 February 2014. The scheme operates in the United Kingdom and can cover combinable crops, such as cereals, oilseeds and sugar beet. This scheme covers the trading, transport and storage stages of agricultural feedstock from farm gate to first processor and, for the other stages, relies on other voluntary schemes recognised by the Commission. As such, it is the responsibility of the ‘Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops’ to ensure that the recognition issued by the Commission on those schemes with which it jointly operates remains valid during the length of cooperation. The recognised scheme should be made available at the transparency platform established under Directive 2009/28/EC. (5) Assessment of the ‘Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops’ scheme found it to cover adequately all the sustainability criteria of Directive 98/70/EC and of Directive 2009/28/EC, except Article 7b(2) of Directive 98/70/EC and Article 17(2) of Directive 2009/28/EC. It does, however, provide accurate data on elements that are required by economic operators downstream the chain of custody to demonstrate compliance with Article 7b(2) of Directive 98/70/EC and Article 17(2) of Directive 2009/28/EC and applies a mass balance methodology in line with the requirements of Article 7c(1) of Directive 98/70/EC and Article 18(1) of Directive 2009/28/EC. (6) The evaluation of the ‘Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops’ found that it meets adequate standards of reliability, transparency and independent auditing. (7) The ‘Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops’ was assessed against legislation in force at the time of the adoption of this Decision. In the case of relevant changes in the legal basis the Commission should assess the scheme with a view to establish whether the scheme still adequately covers the sustainability criteria for which it is recognised. (8) In the case of changes in the scheme the Commission should assess the scheme with a view to establish whether the scheme is still adequately covering the sustainability criteria for which it is recognised. (9) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on the Sustainability of Biofuels and Bioliquids, The ‘Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops’ (hereinafter ‘the scheme’), submitted for recognition to the Commission on 7 February 2014, demonstrates that consignments of biofuels comply with the sustainability criteria set out in Article 7b(3), (4) and (5) of Directive 98/70/EC and Article 17(3), (4) and (5) of Directive 2009/28/EC. The scheme uses accurate data for purposes of Article 7b(2) of Directive 98/70/EC and Article 17(2) of Directive 2009/28/EC in as far as it ensures that all relevant information from economic operators upstream the chain of custody is transferred to the economic operators downstream the chain of custody. The scheme may be used for demonstrating compliance with Article 7c(1) of Directive 98/70/EC and Article 18(1) of Directive 2009/28/EC up to the first processor of the raw materials. If the scheme, after adoption of this Decision, undergoes changes to its contents in a way that might affect the basis of this Decision, such changes shall be notified to the Commission without delay. The Commission shall assess the notified changes with a view to establish whether the scheme is still adequately covering the sustainability criteria for which it is recognised. If it has been clearly demonstrated that the scheme has not implemented elements considered to be decisive for this Decision and if severe and structural breach of those elements has taken place, the Commission may repeal this Decision. This Decision is valid for a period of five years. This Decision shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Decision No 458/2010/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 19 May 2010 amending Decision No 573/2007/EC establishing the European Refugee Fund for the period 2008 to 2013 by removing funding for certain Community actions and altering the limit for funding such actions
28.5.2010 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 129/1 DECISION No 458/2010/EU OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 19 May 2010 amending Decision No 573/2007/EC establishing the European Refugee Fund for the period 2008 to 2013 by removing funding for certain Community actions and altering the limit for funding such actions THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION , Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 78(2) thereof, Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission, Acting in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure (1), Whereas: (1) The policy of the Union on the Common European Asylum System (the CEAS) is designed, under the terms of the Hague Programme, to establish a common asylum area by means of an effective harmonised procedure consistent with the values and humanitarian tradition of the European Union. (2) Much progress has been made in recent years towards the establishment of the CEAS, thanks to the introduction of common minimum standards. There remain great disparities between the Member States, however, in the granting of international protection and the forms that such protection takes. (3) In its Policy Plan on Asylum, adopted in June 2008, the Commission announced its intention to develop the CEAS by proposing a revision of the existing legal instruments in order to achieve greater harmonisation of the applicable standards and by strengthening support for practical cooperation between the Member States, in particular, by a legislative proposal to establish a European Asylum Support Office (the Support Office) in order to increase coordination of operational cooperation between Member States so that the common rules are implemented effectively. (4) In the European Pact on Immigration and Asylum, adopted in September 2008, the European Council solemnly reiterated that any persecuted foreigner is entitled to obtain aid and protection on the territory of the European Union in application of the Geneva Convention of 28 July 1951 relating to the Status of Refugees, as amended by the New York Protocol of 31 January 1967, and other relevant treaties. It was also expressly agreed that a European support office would be established in 2009. (5) Practical cooperation on asylum aims to increase convergence and ensure ongoing quality of Member States’ decision-making procedures in that area, within a European legislative framework. A substantial number of practical cooperation measures have already been undertaken in recent years, notably the adoption of a common approach to information on countries of origin and the establishment of a common European asylum curriculum. The Support Office should be established in order to strengthen and develop those cooperation measures. (6) In the interests of simplifying actions to support practical cooperation on asylum matters, and in so far as the Support Office should be entrusted with some of the tasks that are currently financed under the European Refugee Fund, it is necessary to transfer responsibility for some of the Community actions provided for in Article 4 of Decision No 573/2007/EC (2) from the European Refugee Fund to the Support Office in order to ensure the best possible practical cooperation on asylum matters. (7) In order to take account of the reduced scope of the Community actions, the limit for their funding laid down in Decision No 573/2007/EC should be reduced from 10 % of the Fund’s available resources to 4 % thereof. (8) The financial envelope for the implementation of Decision No 573/2007/EC should be reduced in order to free up resources for funding the Support Office. (9) In accordance with Article 3 of the Protocol on the Position of the United Kingdom and Ireland in respect of the area of freedom, security and justice, annexed to the Treaty on European Union and to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the United Kingdom and Ireland have notified their wish to take part in the adoption and application of this Decision. (10) In accordance with Articles 1 and 2 of the Protocol on the Position of Denmark, annexed to the Treaty on European Union and to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, Denmark is not taking part in the adoption of this Decision and is not bound by it nor subject to its application, Decision No 573/2007/EC is hereby amended as follows: 1. Article 4 is amended as follows: (a) in paragraph 1, the figure ‘10 %’ is replaced by the figure ‘4 %’; (b) in paragraph 2, points (a) and (f) are deleted; 2. Article 12(1) is replaced by the following: This Decision shall enter into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. This Decision is addressed to the Member States in accordance with the Treaties. This Decision shall be published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

(2) However, the information presently available on the conditions applying in third countries is still not sufficient to enable the Commission to adopt any such decision in respect of any third country at this stage. (3) In order to prevent trade patterns from being disrupted, Member States importing vegetable propagating and planting material, other than seed, from third countries should be allowed to continue to apply to such products conditions equivalent to those applicable to similar Community products in accordance with Article 16(2) of Directive 92/33/EEC. (4) The period of application of the derogation provided for in Article 16(2) the first subparagraph of Directive 92/33/EEC, which was extended until 31 December 2004 by Commission Decision 2002/111/EC (2) should accordingly be further extended. (5) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Seeds and Propagating Materials for Agriculture, Horticulture and Forestry, In the first subparagraph of Article 16(2) of Directive 92/33/EEC, the date ‘31 December 2004’ is replaced by ‘31 December 2007’.

12.4.2007 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 97/5 COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 389/2007 of 11 April 2007 amending Regulation (EC) No 1622/2000 laying down certain detailed rules for implementing Regulation (EC) No 1493/1999 on the common organisation of the market in wine and establishing a Community code of oenological practices and processes THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1493/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in wine (1), and in particular Article 46(1)(b) thereof, Whereas: (1) Commission Regulation (EC) No 1622/2000 (2) lays down certain conditions for the use of substances authorised by Regulation (EC) No 1493/1999. In particular, Annex IXa provides that dimethyldicarbonate must be added prior to bottling. The translation of the term ‘bottling’ and its different meanings in certain languages have led to diverging interpretations of the scope of this provision by operators and control authorities. (2) Article 7 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 753/2002 of 29 April 2002 laying down certain rules for applying Council Regulation (EC) No 1493/1999 as regards the description, designation, presentation and protection of certain wine sector products (3) defines the term ‘bottling’ for its application. (3) To ensure a uniform interpretation of the requirements applicable to the use of dimethyldicarbonate, the definition of the term ‘bottling’ provided in Regulation (EC) No 753/2002 should be used to clarify the requirements contained in Regulation (EC) No 1622/2000. Annex IXa to Regulation (EC) No 1622/2000 should therefore be amended accordingly. (4) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Wine, The first indent of the second paragraph of Annex IXa to Regulation (EC) No 1622/2000 is replaced by the following: ‘— Addition must be carried out only a short time prior to bottling, defined as putting the product concerned up for commercial purposes in containers of a capacity not exceeding 60 litres.’ This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

31.8.2012 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 234/4 COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 784/2012 of 30 August 2012 amending Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010 to list an auction platform to be appointed by Germany and correcting Article 59(7) thereof (Text with EEA relevance) THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION , Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, Having regard to Directive 2003/87/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 October 2003 establishing a scheme for greenhouse gas emission allowance trading within the Community and amending Council Directive 96/61/EC (1), and in particular Articles 3d(3) and 10(4) thereof, Whereas: (1) Commission Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010 of 12 November 2010 on the timing, administration and other aspects of auctioning of greenhouse gas emission allowances pursuant to Directive 2003/87/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a scheme for greenhouse gas emission allowances trading within the Community (2), allows Member States not participating in the joint action as provided in Article 26(1) and (2) to appoint their own auction platform for the auctioning of their share of the volume of allowances covered by Chapters II and III of Directive 2003/87/EC. The appointment of such auction platforms is subject to listing of the auction platform concerned in Annex III, pursuant to the third paragraph of Article 30(5) of that Regulation. (2) In accordance with Article 30(4) of Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010, Germany informed the Commission of its decision not to participate in the joint action as provided in Article 26(1) and (2) of that Regulation, and to appoint its own auction platform. (3) On 9 March 2012, Germany notified the Commission of its intention to appoint European Energy Exchange AG (‘EEX’) as an auction platform referred to in Article 30(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010. (4) On 22 March 2012, Germany presented the notification to the Climate Change Committee. In addition, Germany has provided further information and clarification to the Commission, supplementing the notification accordingly. (5) The proposed appointment of EEX as an auction platform referred to in Article 30(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010 is compatible with the requirements of that Regulation and is in conformity with the objectives set out in Article 10(4) of Directive 2003/87/EC. (6) In accordance with point (e) of Article 35(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010, an auction platform must not abuse the contract appointing it to unduly leverage the competitiveness of its other activities, notably the secondary market it organises. Therefore, the listing of EEX as an auction platform should be conditional upon EEX providing the option to candidate bidders to be admitted to bid in the auctions without being required to become a member of or a participant in the secondary market organised by EEX or of any other trading place operated by EEX or by any third party. (7) In accordance with point (h) of Article 35(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010, when appointing an auction platform, the Member States have to take into account the extent to which adequate measures are provided to require an auction platform to hand over all tangible and intangible assets necessary for the conduct of the auctions by an auction platform’s successor. Such measures should be laid down in a clear and timely manner in an exit strategy that should be reviewed by the auction monitor. EEX should develop such an exit strategy and take into utmost account the auction monitor’s opinion thereon. (8) An auction platform is required to obtain the auction monitor’s opinion on the methodology for the application of Articles 7(6) and 8(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010. However, where the auction monitor has not been appointed before the start of the auction concerned, the auction platform should be allowed to proceed without having obtained the auction monitor’s opinion. (9) Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010 should therefore be amended accordingly. (10) Moreover, certain references in Article 59(7) of Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010 should be corrected. (11) In order to ensure predictable and timely auctions by the auction platform to be appointed by Germany, this Regulation should enter into force as a matter of urgency. (12) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Climate Change Committee, Amendments to Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010 Regulation (EU) No 1031/2010 is amended as follows: (1) in Article 3, the following point is added: ‘44. “exit strategy” means one or more documents determined in accordance with the contracts appointing the auction monitor or the auction platform concerned, setting out detailed measures planned to ensure the following: (a) the transfer of all tangible and intangible assets necessary for the uninterrupted continuation of the auctions and the smooth operation of the auction process by an auction platform’s successor; (b) the provision to the contracting authorities or the auction monitor, or both, of all information relating to the auction process, that is necessary for the procurement procedure for the appointment of the auction platform’s successor; (c) the provision to the contracting authorities, or the auction monitor or the auction platform’s successor, or any combination of these, of the technical assistance that enables the contracting authorities, or the auction monitor or the auction platform’s successor, or any combination of these, to understand, access or use the relevant information provided pursuant to points (a) and (b).’; (2) in Article 7, paragraph 7 is replaced by the following: (3) in Article 8, paragraph 3, the following subparagraph is added: (4) in Article 25, paragraph 6 is replaced by the following: (5) Annex III is amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

31.3.2006 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 93/26 COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 511/2006 of 27 March 2006 amending Regulation (EC) No 1531/2002 imposing a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of colour television receivers originating, inter alia, in the People's Republic of China THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 384/96 of 22 December 1995 on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Community (1) (the basic Regulation), and in particular Articles 8 and 9 thereof, Having regard to the proposal submitted by the Commission after consulting the Advisory Committee, Whereas: A.   PREVIOUS PROCEDURE (1) In August 2002, by Regulation (EC) No 1531/2002 (2), the Council imposed a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of colour television receivers (the product concerned) originating, inter alia, in the People's Republic of China (the PRC). (2) In parallel, the Commission, by Decision 2002/683/EC (3), accepted a joint undertaking (the undertaking) offered by Haier Electrical Appliances Corp. Ltd, Hisense Import & Export Co. Ltd, Konka Group Co. Ltd, Sichuan Changhong Electric Co. Ltd, Skyworth Multimedia International (Shenzen) Co. Ltd, TCL King Electrical Appliances (Hui Zhou) Co. Ltd and Xiamen Overseas Chinese Electronic Co. Ltd, (the Companies) in conjunction with the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronics Products (CCCME). (3) As a result, imports into the Community of the product concerned of PRC origin, produced by the Companies, and of a type covered by the undertaking (the product covered by the undertaking), were exempt from the definitive anti-dumping duties. B.   FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THE UNDERTAKING (4) The undertaking offered by the Companies obliges them to, inter alia, export the product covered by the undertaking to the first independent customer in the Community at, or above, certain minimum import price levels (MIPs) and to respect certain quantitative ceilings laid down in the undertaking. These price levels and ceilings eliminate the injurious effects of dumping. (5) For the purposes of ensuring compliance with the undertaking, CCCME and the Companies also agreed to provide all information considered necessary by the Commission and to allow on-the-spot verification visits at their premises in order to verify the accuracy and veracity of data submitted in the said quarterly reports. (6) As noted in recital 239 of Regulation (EC) No 1531/2002, the undertaking specifically provides that a breach by any of the Companies or the CCCME shall be considered as a breach of the undertaking by all signatories. Failure to cooperate with the European Commission in monitoring the undertaking is considered as a breach of the undertaking. (7) In this regard, the Commission requested to carry out on-the-spot verification visits at the premises of CCCME and of the two companies with the largest reported volume of sales of the product concerned, namely Xiamen Overseas Chinese Electronic Co. Ltd and Konka Group Co. Ltd. The Commission sent pre-verification letters to CCCME, Xiamen Overseas Chinese Electronic Co. Ltd and Konka Group Co. Ltd with an indication of the dates for the on-the-spot verification. The CCCME and Xiamen Overseas Chinese Electronic Co. Ltd confirmed the acceptance of the on-the-spot verification visit requested by the Commission. However, Konka Group Co. Ltd refused to accept an on-the-spot verification visit, thereby breaching the undertaking. (8) Commission Decision 2006/258/EC (4) sets out in more detail the nature of the breach found. (9) In view of the breach, acceptance of the undertaking offered by the Companies in conjunction with the CCCME has been withdrawn by Decision No 2006/258/EC. A definitive anti-dumping duty should therefore be imposed forthwith on imports of the product concerned exported to the Community by the companies concerned. (10) In accordance with Article 8(9) of the basic Regulation, the rate of the anti-dumping duty must be established on the basis of the facts established within the context of the investigation which led to the undertaking. As the investigation in question was concluded by a final determination as to dumping and resulting injury by Regulation (EC) No 1531/2002, it is considered appropriate that the definitive anti-dumping rate be set at the level and in the form imposed by that Regulation, namely 44,6 % of the net, cif free-at-Community-frontier price, before duty. C.   AMENDMENT TO REGULATION (EC) No 1531/2002 (11) In view of the above, Regulation (EC) No 1531/2002 should be amended accordingly, Regulation (EC) No 1531/2002 is hereby amended as follows: 1. Article 3, Annex I and Annex II shall be repealed; 2. Articles 4 and 5 shall become Articles 3 and 4 respectively. This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

(3) Serbia has presented residue monitoring plans to the Commission for animals and products of animal origin not currently listed in Decision 2004/432/EC. The evaluation of those plans and the additional information obtained by the Commission provide sufficient guarantees on the residue monitoring in that third country for the animals and products concerned. The relevant animals and products of animal origin should therefore be included in the list for Serbia in that Decision. (4) Greenland, Namibia and Paraguay have asked not to be included in the list in Decision 2004/432/EC for certain categories of animals and products of animal origin. The entries concerning the relevant animals and products of animal origin should therefore be deleted from the list for those third countries. (5) Costa Rica and Vietnam, which are currently listed for certain animals or products of animal origin under Decision 2004/432/EC, have not submitted to the Commission the requested guarantees for some of these animals and products of animal origin. Moreover Food and Veterinary Office inspections in those third countries have revealed serious deficiencies concerning the residue monitoring for the animals and products concerned. The entries for the relevant animals and products of animal origin for those third countries should therefore be deleted in the list. The third countries concerned have been informed accordingly. (6) A transitional period should be laid down to cover consignments of animals and products originating in Costa Rica, Greenland, Namibia, Paraguay and Vietnam which were dispatched from those third countries for the Community, before the date of application of this Decision, to cover the time needed for their arrival in the Community. (7) Decision 2004/432/EC should therefore be amended accordingly. (8) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health, The Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC is replaced by the text in the Annex to this Decision. The amendments to the list in the Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC by the present Decision shall not apply to consignments of animals and products originating in Costa Rica, Greenland, Namibia, Paraguay and Vietnam where the importer of such products can demonstrate that they had been dispatched from the third country concerned and were en route to the Community before the date of application of the present Decision.

Regulation (EC) No 1934/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 October 2004 amending Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 on development cooperation with South Africa
13.11.2004 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 338/1 REGULATION (EC) No 1934/2004 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 October 2004 amending Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 on development cooperation with South Africa THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 179 thereof, Having regard to the proposal from the Commission, Acting in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 251 of the Treaty (1), Whereas: (1) Pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 June 2000 on development cooperation with South Africa (2) the Commission is to submit to the European Parliament and to the Council a mid-term review by 31 October 2003. On the basis of that mid-term review, certain amendments to Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 have been suggested. (2) The mid-term review includes suggestions and proposals for improving the implementation of development cooperation with South Africa, some of which were already made in the Country Strategy Paper of 2002 and have been taken into account in the 2003 to 2005 Indicative Programme. They concern, inter alia, mainstreaming of gender issues at all levels of the project cycle from planning to implementation, streamlining of administrative procedures, improving criteria for assessing project and programme design and clarification of the conditions for granting contributions from the European Programme for Reconstruction and Development (EPRD) to regional programmes. (3) In accordance with Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 2988/95 of 18 December 1995 on the protection of the European Communities' financial interests (3), it is possible to provide funding to the Republic of South Africa through direct budget support. Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 could, however, be interpreted as excluding untargeted budget support. In addition, Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002 of 25 June 2002 on the Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of the European Communities (4) contains in Title IV of Part Two specific provisions for ‘External Actions’. It is, therefore, appropriate to bring Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 into line with Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002 and with Commission Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 2342/2002 of 23 December 2002 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002 on the Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of the European Communities (5). (4) In view of the implementation of the EPRD, and in particular of the 2000 to 2002 Multiannual Indicative Programme, Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 should be adjusted, in particular in relation to the adoption of sector-wide programmes, funding through budget support and the joint funding of projects and programmes in the field of regional cooperation and integration. (5) Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 entered into force in 2000 and expires on 31 December 2006. However, Article 6(1) requires triennial indicative programming to be carried out. In order for programmes to correspond to the period of validity of the Regulation, provision should also be made for four-year indicative programmes. (6) The Partnership Agreement between the members of the African, Caribbean and Pacific group of States, of the one part, and the European Community and its Member States, of the other part (6), to which South Africa is a signatory, was signed in Cotonou on 23 June 2000. Protocol 3 of that Agreement defines South Africa's qualified status under the Agreement. (7) Council Decision 1999/753/EC (7) approved the provisional application of the Agreement on Trade, Development and Cooperation between the European Community and its Member States and the Republic of South Africa. Annex X to that Agreement stipulates that the Community will provide assistance for the restructuring of the South African wine and spirits sector and for the marketing and distribution of South African wines and spirits. The two corresponding Agreements on trade in wine and spirits have been approved by Council Decision 2002/51/EC (8) and by Council Decision 2002/52/EC (9) respectively. It is, therefore, necessary to include an additional amount in the financial reference amount provided for by Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000. (8) In practice, the European Development Fund Committee has been acting in the context of Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 as the ‘South Africa Committee’. It is appropriate formally to establish that Committee. (9) Article 8(5) of Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 requests that the Commission consult the Committee on financing decisions it intends to take concerning projects and programmes of a value of over EUR 5 million. For the sake of sound financial management and rationalisation of procedures, it is appropriate to raise this ceiling to EUR 8 million. (10) Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 should, therefore, be amended accordingly, Regulation (EC) No 1726/2000 is hereby amended as follows: 1. Article 2(1) is replaced by the following: 2. In Article 2(2), the introductory phrase is replaced by the following: 3. Article 4 is hereby amended as follows: (a) paragraph 2 is amended as follows: (i) in the first subparagraph, the introductory phrase is replaced by the following: (ii) in the first subparagraph, point (a) is replaced by the following: ‘(a) government budget expenditure to support reforms and policy implementation in the priority sectors identified through a policy dialogue, using the most appropriate instruments including budgetary support and other specific forms of budgetary aid;’ (iii) the second subparagraph is replaced by the following: (b) the following paragraph is inserted: 4. Article 5 is deleted. 5. Article 6 is replaced by the following: 6. Article 7(2) is deleted. 7. Article 8 is hereby amended as follows: (a) paragraph 1 is replaced by the following: (b) in paragraphs 5 and 6 the amount of ‘EUR 5 million’ is replaced by ‘EUR 8 million’. 8. In Article 10(1) the amount of ‘EUR 885,5 million’ is replaced by ‘EUR 900,5 million’. This Regulation shall enter into force on the 20th day after its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION DECISION of 2 April 1986 establishing the delivery levels of ECSC steel products of Portuguese origin onto the rest of the common market, excluding Spain (Only the Portuguese text is authentic) (86/185/ECSC) THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Coal and Steel Community, Having regard to the Act of Accession of Spain and Portugal, and in particular Protocol 20 thereof, Having received the assent of the Council, Whereas Protocol 20, which covers the restructuring of the Portuguese iron and steel industry and the Joint Declaration on the Portuguese iron and steel industry, provide that deliveries of ECSC steel products of Portuguese origin onto the Community market will be the subject of quantitative limits in 1986; Whereas, at the date of accession, there was no agreement between the Commission and the Portuguese Government on the level of these aforementioned deliveries; Whereas, pursuant to the second subparagraph of paragraph 5 (a) of Protocol 20, it falls upon the Commission, with the assent of the Council, to establish the level of these deliveries; Whereas, by the terms of the first subparagraph of paragraph 3 (a) of the said Joint Declaration the level of the deliveries must be compatible with the forecasts used to calculate the evolution of the Community market; Whereas no significant changes are forecast for the Community market for 1986 in comparison with 1985, and in particular several important aspects of the internal anti-crisis measures will remain; Whereas, therefore, the Portuguese deliveries to the rest of the Community, excluding Spain, should not exceed in 1986 the level of 90 000 tonnes, a quantity based on the traditional deliveries of Portugal to the Community as constituted on 31 December 1985, taking into account the recent trend, Deliveries of ECSC steel products of Portuguese origin onto the rest of the Community market, excluding Spain, may not exceed 90 000 tonnes.

93/588/EEC: Council Decision of 29 October 1993 on the adoption of a programme of Community action on the subject of the vocational training of indirect taxation officials (Matthaeus-Tax)
COUNCIL DECISION of 29 October 1993 on the adoption of a programme of Community action on the subject of the vocational training of indirect taxation officials (Matthaeus-Tax) (93/588/EEC)THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 100a thereof, Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1), In cooperation with the European Parliament (2), Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (3), Whereas in a single market without internal frontiers, indirect taxation officials will play an essential part in ensuring the proper operation of the internal market; Whereas it must be ensured that the abolition of controls at internal borders does not give rise to distortions in competition, deflection of trade or increased risk of fraud and tax evasion; whereas it is consequently necessary to stimulate intensive and ongoing cooperation at all levels in the indirect taxation administrations to ensure that they work together to complete the internal market; Whereas this will be achieved through optimizing the use of human resources in Member States and therefore through suitable vocational training; Whereas the measures taken in this sphere by each of the national administrations are not in themselves sufficient to achieve the objective being pursued; whereas it is consequently essential to reinforce national efforts through joint action to increase the awareness of indirect taxation officials of the increasing Community dimension of their tasks and of the need to cooperate more closely together; Whereas only a better mutual knowledge of the organization, methods and procedures applied in the different Member States can ensure the climate of mutual confidence necessary for a proper functioning of the internal market; Whereas the experience acquired by the Community from the organization of the Matthaeus programme, intended for the customs officials of the Member States, showed the benefit of training activities, supplementing those organized at the national level, in developing a Community spirit of the officials working in the internal market; whereas this experience must, mutatis mutandis, be spread to the indirect taxation area; Whereas, in these conditions, the implementation of a training programme at a Community level for indirect taxation officials (Matthaeus-Tax) constitutes one of the most appropriate ways to achieve this result; Whereas the Commission adopted a pilot project for 1991 and 1992 based on the exchange of indirect taxation officials between national administrations and training seminars; whereas the aim of this pilot project was to collect useful information to allow the implementation of a more ambitious training programme extending over several years and supplemented by other training measures; Whereas the experience acquired during the pilot project indicated that there was an advantage in exchange officials having an involvement in the day-to-day activities of the host service; whereas this requirement will be met most effectively if the exchange officials have sufficient knowledge of the language of the host country; whereas, for this purpose, it is essential that the national administrations organize language courses for their officials so they can participate more effectively in the programme; whereas these courses must be of an ongoing nature and must cover, as far as possible, all the official languages of the Community; Whereas the legal status of exchange officials will be the same as that of national officials where, in performing their duties, their civil liability is put at issue by a third part and they will be informed about the civil liability rules applicable to them in the host country; Whereas exchange officials will be bound by the same rules of professional secrecy as national officials, given that exchange officials will take part in the day-to-day work of the host administration; Whereas the number of officials undergoing an exchange should, as far as possible, amount to some 100 each year and be increased to the extent that budgetary, training and admission capacities permit; Whereas training measures supplementary to the exchange of officials between national administrations are essential to the achievement of the objective sought; whereas these measures may involve training seminars and the establishment of common training programmes to be taught in Member States' schools; Whereas seminars form an ideal forum for the exchange of ideas between indirect taxation officials in the Community; whereas in these seminars, suggestions may emerge which could improve the legal instruments in force and facilitate cooperation between the administrations concerned; Whereas the said seminars should concern those indirect taxation officials who belong, as necessary, to all categories and especially trainers in national administrations' schools, officials responsible for implementing indirect taxation law, especially where it relates to the control of transactions involving other Member States, and officials responsible for combating all types of fiscal fraud; Whereas the setting up of common training programmes, in so far as necessary, constitutes a suitable means of making comparable training available to officials throughout the Community; whereas these programmes should include the teaching of Community law as well as the study of Community institutions and their foundations, since indirect taxation officials will increasingly have to integrate these Community aspects; Whereas the implementation of these common programmes can be accomplished only if Member States provide the necessary facilities; whereas consideration should also be given to creating a joint training centre for indirect taxation officials which should be located at the Joint Training Centre for customs officials of the Community referred to in Decision 91/341/EEC (4); Whereas, for the implementation of the Matthaeus-Tax programme, the sharing of expenses under the programme between the Community and the Member States should be determined; whereas, consequently, expenses could be shared by assigning those relating to the language training of their officials to Member States and the travel and subsistence expenses of officials participating in the programme in another Member State as well as the costs relating to the organization of the seminars to the Community; Whereas there are reasons to anticipate a programme lasting for four years; Whereas it is necessary to ensure the uniform application of this Decision and, for that purpose, to provide for a Community procedure for the enactment of implementing rules; whereas a committee should be set up to provide a forum for close and effective cooperation between Member States and the Commission in this field, A Community action programme is hereby established for the vocational training of indirect taxation officials of national administrations (Matthaeus-Tax). For the purposes of this Decision: (a) 'indirect taxation' shall mean only those indirect taxes which are the subject of Community legislation; (b) 'exchange official' shall mean an official of a Member State required to visit another Member State within the context of this Decision; (c) 'host service' shall mean the taxation service in which the exchange official is required to perform his duties; (d) 'donor service' shall mean the taxation service in which the exchange official normally performs his duties. The objectives of the programme shall be: (a) to prepare indirect taxation officials of Member States for the implications arising out of the creation of the internal market and the development of administrative cooperation, and thus ensure a better application of Community law; (b) to make national officials aware of the Community dimension of their work and to build mutual confidence between the indirect taxation administrations of Member States; (c) to provide supplementary, adapted vocational training to indirect taxation officials; (d) to utilize to the maximum advantage the knowledge of the indirect taxation services in the Community through greater mobility of staff and thus improve the management and the effectiveness of the internal market; (e) to stimulate intensive and continuous cooperation at all levels of the relevant administrations with a view to them working together within the context of the internal market. The programme shall consist of the following training measures: (a) exchanges of indirect taxation officials between national administrations, in accordance with Article 5; (b) training seminars for officials, particularly trainers in training schools, officials responsible for administrative cooperation as well as officials responsible for indirect taxation controls and the fight against fraud and tax evasion; (c) the coordinated implementation of vocational training programmes in the training schools of Member States; (d) the organization in Member States of language training courses for officials likely to participate in exchanges, in accordance with Article 6. 1. Member States shall take the necessary steps to enable exchange officials to play an effective part in the host service's activities and to this end such officials shall be authorized to carry out the tasks relating to the duties entrusted to them by the host service in accordance with its legal system. 2. During the exchange, the civil liability of the exchange official in the performance of his duties shall be treated in the same way as that of the national officials in the host service. 3. Exchange officials shall be bound by the same rules of professional secrecy as national officials. Member States shall provide the necessary language training for those of their officials who are likely to participate in the programme. 1. The expenses arising from the measures set out in Article 4 shall be shared between the Community and the Member States as provided for in paragraphs 2 and 3. 2. The Community shall pay the travel and subsistence expenses for exchanges of officials between national administrations as provided for in Article 4 (a). The Community shall also pay the travel and subsistence expenses of officials participating, in another Member State, in the seminars referred to in Article 4 (b), as well as the costs relating to the organization of these seminars. 3.

COUNCIL DECISION of 9 March 1998 authorizing the United Kingdom to extend application of a measure derogating from Articles 6 and 17 of the Sixth Council Directive (77/388/EEC) on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to turnover taxes (98/198/EC) THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to the Sixth Council Directive 77/388/EEC of 17 May 1977 on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to turnover taxes - Common system of value added tax: uniform basis of assessment (1), and in particular Article 27 thereof, Having regard to the previous Decision 95/252/EC (2), Having regard to the proposal from the Commission, Whereas, pursuant to Article 27(1) of Directive 77/388/EEC, the Council, acting unanimously on a proposal from the Commission, may authorise any Member State to introduce or extend special measures for derogation from that Directive in order to simplify the procedure for charging the tax or to prevent certain types of tax evasion or avoidance; Whereas, by letter registered at the Commission on 6 October 1997, the United Kingdom requested authorisation to extend application of the derogation previously granted to it by Decision 95/252/EC; Whereas the other Member States were informed on 23 October 1997 of the United Kingdom's request; Whereas the United Kingdom was authorised by Decision 95/252/EC to apply until 31 December 1997 a measure derogating from Articles 6 and 17 of Directive 77/388/EEC; Whereas the derogation in question is designed, firstly, to restrict to 50 % the right of the hirer or lessee of a car to deduct the VAT on the hire or leasing transaction where the car is used for private purposes and, secondly, to waive the VAT payable on the private use of the car in question; Whereas the objective of this restriction of the right to deduct is to tax the private use of cars hired or leased by taxable persons at a flat rate; Whereas the measure, by reducing the administrative burden on traders, who are not required to keep records of private mileage, constitutes a simplification of the procedure for charging tax within the meaning of Article 27 of Directive 77/388/EEC; Whereas the Commission adopted on 10 July 1996 a work programme, accompanied by a schedule of proposals, providing for gradual, stage-by-stage progress towards a common VAT system for the internal market; Whereas the authorisation is being granted until 31 December 1998 so as to enable an assessment to be made at that time as to whether the derogation measure is consistent with the Community approach to limitations of the right to deduct VAT on certain expenditure, which will be adopted under that programme; Whereas the derogation will not have an adverse impact on the Community's own resources accruing from VAT, By way of derogation from Article 17(2) and (3) of Directive 77/388/EEC the United Kingdom is hereby authorised to restrict to 50 % the right of the hirer or lessee of a car to deduct the VAT on the cost of hiring or leasing that car where it is used for private purposes. By way of derogation from Article 6(2)(a) of Directive 77/388/EEC the United Kingdom is hereby authorised not to treat as supplies of services for consideration the private use of a business car hired or leased by a taxable person. This authorisation shall expire on 31 December 1998. This Decision is addressed to the United Kingdom.

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1705/2005 of 18 October 2005 determining the world market price for unginned cotton
19.10.2005 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 273/16 COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1705/2005 of 18 October 2005 determining the world market price for unginned cotton THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Protocol 4 on cotton, annexed to the Act of Accession of Greece, as last amended by Council Regulation (EC) No 1050/2001 (1), Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1051/2001 of 22 May 2001 on production aid for cotton (2), and in particular Article 4 thereof, Whereas: (1) In accordance with Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 1051/2001, a world market price for unginned cotton is to be determined periodically from the price for ginned cotton recorded on the world market and by reference to the historical relationship between the price recorded for ginned cotton and that calculated for unginned cotton. That historical relationship has been established in Article 2(2) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1591/2001 of 2 August 2001 laying down detailed rules for applying the cotton aid scheme (3). Where the world market price cannot be determined in this way, it is to be based on the most recent price determined. (2) In accordance with Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 1051/2001, the world market price for unginned cotton is to be determined in respect of a product of specific characteristics and by reference to the most favourable offers and quotations on the world market among those considered representative of the real market trend. To that end, an average is to be calculated of offers and quotations recorded on one or more European exchanges for a product delivered cif to a port in the Community and coming from the various supplier countries considered the most representative in terms of international trade. However, there is provision for adjusting the criteria for determining the world market price for ginned cotton to reflect differences justified by the quality of the product delivered and the offers and quotations concerned. Those adjustments are specified in Article 3(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1591/2001. (3) The application of the above criteria gives the world market price for unginned cotton determined hereinafter, The world price for unginned cotton as referred to in Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 1051/2001 is hereby determined as equalling 22,439 EUR/100 kg. This Regulation shall enter into force on 19 October 2005. This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 865/90 of 4 April 1990 laying down detailed rules for the application of the special arrangements for imports of grain sorghum and millet originating in the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP) or in the overseas countries and territories (OCT) THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 715/90 of 5 March 1990 on the arrangements applicable to agricultural products and certain goods resulting from the processing of agricultural products originating in the ACP States or in the overseas countries and territories (OCT) (1), and in particular Article 27 thereof, Whereas Article 11 of Regulation (EEC) No 715/90 provides that the levy applicable to imports of grain sorghum covered by CN code 1007 00 is to be that fixed pursuant to Article 13 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2727/75 (2), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 201/90 (3), reduced by 60 % within the limit of a quota of 100 000 tonnes per calendar year and reduced by 50 % in excess of that quota; whereas that Regulation provides that no import levy is to be collected on millet covered by CN code 1008 20 00 within the limit of a quota of 60 000 tonnes per calendar year and that the levy applicable in excess of that quota is to be reduced by 50 %; Whereas detailed rules on the administration of those quotas should first be laid down; whereas, in this context, it should be provided that licences for the importation of the products in question are to be issued after a period for reflection and after, where appropriate, the fixing of a single coefficient for reducing the quantities applied for; whereas, in addition, in the interests of the operators, the possibility of withdrawing licence applications after the fixing of the reduction coefficient should be provided for; Whereas detailed rules relating additionally to imports outside the quotas are also required; Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Cereals, I. Provisions on quotas 1. Import licence applications under the quotas for grain sorghum covered by CN code 1007 00 and millet covered by CN code 1008 20 00 fixed by Regulation (EEC) No 715/90 shall be lodged with the competent authorities in any Member State up to 1 p.m. (Brussels time) on Mondays or, if that day is not a working day, on the first following working day. 2.

Licence applications may be withdrawn within one working day following the date on which the reduction coefficient was fixed. 5. Without prejudice to the application of paragraph 4, a licence shall be issued on the fifth working day following the day on which the application for the licence was lodged. 6. By way of derogation from Article 8 (4) of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88 (4), the quantity imported may not exceed that indicated in sections 17 and 18 of the import licence. The figure zero shall be entered to that effect in section 19 of the licence.

Proof shall be provided by the bill of lading or another transport document presenting sufficient guarantee, duly drawn up at the time of dispatch. This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities. This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

94/1058/EC: Commission Decision of 16 December 1994 on the approval of the Single Programming Document for Community structural assistance in the region of Pays de la Loire concerned by Objective 2 in France (Only the French text is authentic)
COMMISSION DECISION of 16 December 1994 on the approval of the Single Programming Document for Community structural assistance in the region of Pays de la Loire concerned by Objective 2 in France (Only the French text is authentic) (94/1058/EC) THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88 of 19 December 1988 laying down provisions for implementing Regulation (EEC) No 2052/88 as regards coordination of activities of the different Structural Funds between themselves and with the operations of the European Investment Bank and the other existing financial instruments (1), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2082/93 (2), and in particular Article 10 (1) last subparagraph thereof, After consultation of the Advisory Committee on the Development and Conversion of Regions and the Committee pursuant to Article 124 of the Treaty, Whereas the programming procedure for structural assistance under Objective 2 is defined in Article 9 (8) to (10) 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 their activities between themselves and with the operations of the European Investment Bank and the other existing financial instruments (3), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2081/93 (4); whereas, however, the last subparagraph of Article 5 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88 foresees that in order to simplify and to speed up programming procedures, Member States may submit in a Single Programming Document the information required for the regional and social conversion plan referred to in Article 9 (8) of Regulation (EEC) No 2052/88 and the information required at Article 14 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88; whereas Article 10 (1) last subparagraph of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88 foresees that in that case the Commission adopts a single decision in a Single Document covering the points referred to in Article 8 (3) and the assistance from the Funds referred to in the last subparagraph of Article 14 (3); Whereas the Commission has established, by Decision 94/169/EC (5), an initial list of declining industrial areas concerned by Objective 2 for the period 1994 to 1996; Whereas the French Government has submitted to the Commission on 28 April 1994 the Single Programming Document referred to in Article 5 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88 for the region of Pays de la Loire; whereas this document contains the elements referred to in Article 9 (8) of Regulation (EEC) No 2052/88 and in Article 14 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88; whereas expenditure under this Single Programming Document is eligible pursuant to Article 33 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88, from 1 January 1994; Whereas the Single Programming Document submitted by this Member State includes a description of the conversion priorities selected and the applications for assistance from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the European Social Fund (ESF) as well as an indication of the planned use of the assistance available from the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the other financial instruments in implementing the Single Programming Document; Whereas, in accordance with Article 3 of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88, the Commission is charged with ensuring, within the framework of the partnership, coordination and consistency between assistance from the Funds and assistance provided by the EIB and the other financial instruments, including the ECSC and the other actions for structural purposes; Whereas the EIB has been involved in the drawing up of the Single Programming Document in accordance with the provisions of Article 8 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88, applicable by analogy in the establishment of the Single Programming Document; whereas it has declared itself prepared to contribute to the implementation of this document in conformity with its statutory provisions; whereas, however, it has not yet been possible to evaluate precisely the amounts of Community loans corresponding to the financial needs; Whereas Article 2 second subparagraph of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1866/90 of 2 July 1990 on arrangements for using the ecu for the purpose of the budgetary management of the Structural Funds (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2745/94 (2), stipulates that in the Commission Decisions approving a Single Programming Document, the Community assistance available for the entire period and the annual breakdown thereof shall be set out in ecus at prices for the year in which each Decision is taken and shall be subject to indexation; whereas this annual breakdown must be compatible with the progressive increase in the commitment appropriations shown in Annex II to Regulation (EEC) No 2052/88; whereas indexation is based on a single rate per year, corresponding to the rates applied annually to budget appropriations on the basis of the mechanism for the technical adjustment of the financial perspectives; Whereas Article 1 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 4254/88 of 19 December 1988 laying down provisions for implementing Regulation (EEC) No 2052/88 as regards the European Regional Development Fund (3), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2083/93 (4), defines the measures for which the ERDF may provide financial support; Whereas Article 1 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 4255/88 of 19 December 1988 laying down provisions for implementing Regulation (EEC) No 2052/88 as regards the European Social Fund (5), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2084/93 (6), defines the measures for which the ESF may provide financial support; Whereas the Single Programming Document has been established in agreement with the Member State concerned through the partnership defined in Article 4 of Regulation (EEC) No 2052/88; Whereas the Single Programming Document satisfies the conditions and includes the information required by Article 14 of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88; Whereas Article 9 (3) of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88 lays down that Member States shall provide the relevant financial information to the Commission to permit verification of the respect of the principle of additionality; whereas the analysis, in the framework of partnership, of the information provided for by the French authorities has not yet allowed this verification; whereas, payments should therefore be suspended after the first advance provided for in Article 21 (2) of the said Regulation until the Commission will have verified the respect of the additionality; Whereas the present assistance satisfies the conditions laid down in Article 13 of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88, and so should be implemented by means of an integrated approach involving finance from more than one Fund; Whereas Article 1 of the Financial Regulation of 21 December 1977 applicable to the general budget of the European Communities (7), as last amended by Regulation (ECSC, EC, Euratom) No 2730/94 (8), states that the legal commitments entered into for measures extending over more than one financial year must contain a time limit for implementation which must be specified to the recipient in due form when the aid is granted; Whereas all the other conditions laid down for the grant of aid from the ERDF and the ESF have been complied with, The Single Programming Document for Community structural assistance in the region of Pays de la Loire concerned by Objective 2 in France, covering the period 1 January 1994 to 31 December 1996, is hereby approved. The Single Programming Document includes the following essential elements: (a) a statement of the main priorities for joint action, their specific quantified objectives, an appraisal of their expected impact and their consistency with economic, social and regional policies in France; the main priorities are: 1. support enterprise and employment; 2. improve the attractiveness of the region for new enterprise; 3. improve the technical environment within existing enterprises; 4. strengthen and diversify the industrial base; (b) the assistance from the Structural Funds as referred to in Article 4; (c) the detailed provisions for implementing the Single Programming Document comprising: - the procedures for monitoring and evaluation, - the financial implementation provisions, - the rules for compliance with Community policies; (d) the procedures for verifying additionality; (e) the arrangements for associating the environmental authorities with the implementation of the Single Programming Document; (f) the means available for technical assistance necessary for the preparation, implementation or adaptation of the measures concerned. For the purpose of indexation, the annual breakdown of the global maximal allocation foreseen for the assistance from the Structural Funds is as follows: >TABLE> The assistance from the Structural Funds granted to the Single Programming Document amounts to a maximum of ECU 135,9 million. The procedure for granting the financial assistance, including the financial contribution from the Funds to the various priorities and measures, is set out in the financing plan and the detailed implementing provisions which form an integral part of the Single Programming Document. The national financial contribution envisaged, which is approximately ECU 186 million for the public sector may be met in part by Community loans, in particular from the ECSC and EIB. 1. The breakdown among the Structural Funds of the total Community assistance available is as follows: - ERDF:ECU 109,6 million, - ESF:ECU 26,3 million. 2. The budgetary commitments for the first instalment are as follows: - ERDF:ECU 34,836 million, - ESF:ECU 8,359 million.

The financial contribution will be suspended after the payment of the first advance provided for in Article 21 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88 until such time as the Commission has verified the respect of the principle of additionality on the basis of the relevant information supplied by the Member State. The breakdown among the Structural Funds and the procedure for the grant of the assistance may be altered subsequently, subject to the availability of funds and the budgetary rules, in the light of adjustments decided according to the procedure laid down in Article 25 (5) of Regulation (EEC) No 4253/88. The Community aid concerns expenditure on operations under the Single Programming Document which, in the Member State concerned, are the subject of legally binding commitments and for which the requisite finance has been specifically allocated no later than 31 December 1996. The final date for taking account of expenditure on these measures is 31 December 1998. The Single Programming Document shall be implemented in accordance with Community law, and in particular Articles 6, 30, 48, 52, 59, 92 and 93 of the EC Treaty and the Community Directives on the coordination of procedures for the award of contracts. This Decision is addressed to the French Republic.

COMMISSION DECISION of 17 July 1998 terminating the anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports into the Community of thiourea dioxide originating in the People's Republic of China (notified under document number C(1998) 2081) (98/462/EC) THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN UNION , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 384/96 of 22 December 1995 (1) on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Community, as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 905/98 (2), and in particular Article 9 thereof, After consulting the Advisory Committee, Whereas: A. PROCEDURE (1) On 10 September 1997, the Commission received a complaint concerning alleged injurious dumping by imports into the Community of thiourea dioxide originating in the People's Republic of China. (2) The complaint was lodged by the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic), on behalf of Degussa AG, the sole producer of thiourea dioxide in the Community. (3) The complaint contained evidence of dumping by the imports concerned and of material injury resulting therefrom which was considered sufficient to justify the initiation of an anti-dumping proceeding. (4) The Commission, after consultation, accordingly announced in a notice published in the Official Journal of the European Communities (3) the initiation of an anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports into the Community of thiourea dioxide currently classifiable within CN code ex 2930 90 70 originating in the People's Republic of China. (5) The Commission officially advised the exporters and importers known to be concerned, the representatives of the exporting country and the complainant Community producer. Interested parties were given the opportunity to make their views known in writing and to request a hearing within the time limit set out in the notice of initiation. B. WITHDRAWAL OF THE COMPLAINT AND TERMINATION OF THE PROCEEDING (6) By a letter of 6 April 1998 to the Commission, Cefic formally withdrew its complaint concerning imports into the Community of thiourea dioxide originating in the People's Republic of China citing changed circumstances as regards the Community industry having occurred after the lodging of the complaint. In particular, the complainant submitted that the situation of the sole Community producer had changed in the course of the investigation, mitigating the effect of the allegedly dumped imports. (7) In accordance with Article 9(1) of the Council Regulation, (EC) No 384/96 when the complainant withdraws its complaint the proceeding may be terminated unless such termination would not be in the Community interest. The Commission considered that the present investigation has not brought to light any considerations of Community interest which would be against the termination of the proceeding. (8) Interested parties were informed of the Commission's intention to terminate the proceeding and were given the opportunity to comment. No comments were received indicating that such termination would not be in the Community interest. (9) Therefore the Commission has concluded that the anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports into the Community of thiourea dioxide originating in the People's Republic of China should be terminated without the imposition of measures, The anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports into the Community of thiourea dioxide currently classifiable within CN code ex 2930 90 70 and originating in the People's Republic of China is hereby terminated.

For the sake of simplification it is necessary to convert that amount into head for live bovines and into tonnes for other products. (2) Article 8(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1445/95 lays down a period of validity of 75 days for export licences with advance fixing of the refund for pure-bred breeding animals falling within CN code 0102 10 and a period of four months plus the current month for licences issued under the procedure referred to in Article 44 of Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88. Experience has shown that those periods are too brief and that they should be extended to five months plus the current month. At the same time, there should accordingly be a derogation increasing from 21 to 90 days the time limit referred to in Article 44(5) of Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88 within which the exporter must inform the agency issuing the licence of the result of a tendering procedure opened in a third country. (3) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Beef and Veal, Regulation (EC) No 1445/95 is amended as follows: 1. In Article 7, the second paragraph is replaced by the following:"However, notwithstanding, the fourth indent of Article 5(1) of Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88, no export licence shall be required for products covered by the second indent of Article 8(2) in quantities not exceeding nine head for products falling within CN code 0102 and not exceeding two tonnes for other products." 2. Article 8(1) is replaced by the following: "1. The period of validity of licences for exports of products for which a refund is claimed and which are subject to the issuing of an export licence with advance fixing of the refund shall be: - five months plus the current month for products falling within CN code 0102 10 and 75 days for products falling within CN codes 0102 90 and 1602, - 30 days for other products, from the date of issue within the meaning of Article 21(2) of Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88. The validity of licences for exports of beef and veal issued under the procedure laid down in Article 44 of Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88 shall, however, expire at the end of the - fifth month for products falling within CN code 0102 10, - fourth month for other products following the date of issue the meaning of Article 21(2) of that Regulation. By derogation from Article 44(5) of Regulation (EEC) No 3719/88, the time limit of 21 days for products falling within CN code 0102 10 is replaced by 90 days."

Council Directive 86/529/EEC of 3 November 1986 on the adoption of common technical specifications of the MAC/packet family of standards for direct satellite television broadcasting
COUNCIL DIRECTIVE of 3 November 1986 on the adoption of common technical specifications of the MAC/packet family of standards for direct satellite television broadcasting (86/529/EEC) THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 100 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, in the near future, satellites for direct television broadcasting will be brought into service by several European countries and subsequently new television sets corresponding to public needs will be introduced by the manufacturers; Whereas the use of common technical specifications for direct satellite broadcasting of television programmes and possibly for their redistribution by cable is necessary in order to attain the objectives set out hereafter; Whereas the implementation of common technical specifications simplifies the broadcasting of television programmes in all countries of the Community and makes a significant contribution to European unification and to the development of a true European identity; Whereas the technical capability to transmit simultaneously on several sound channels opens the way to truly pan-European multilingual television programmes; Whereas the implementation of common technical specifications leads to the creation of a large unified market, on which products will be freely exchanged without any technical barriers, which will be of great economic benefit for the European consumer electronics industry as regards its competitiveness; Whereas it is indispensable that a guarantee be given to manufacturers and operators in respect of their investments and supplies, by the application of common technical standards at Community level; Whereas the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and the European manufacturers of the relevant branch represented by their associations have perfected and published technical specifications forming part of the MAC/packet family for the direct television breoadcasting and the redistribution of programmes by cable; whereas these specifications have been confirmed at international level by the International Radio Consultative Committee (CCIR); Whereas the MAC/packet family now includes: - for direct satellite broadcasting: the system C-MAC/packet and the system D2-MAC/packet with frequency modulation, - for cable distribution: the system D-MAC/packet and the system D2-MAC/packet; Whereas these systems are very largely compatible with each other on the operational level; Whereas these systems make it possible to meet the service and economic requirements in the different national contexts; Whereas, in view of the foreseeable technical progress in this sector, account should now be taken of any subsequent developments of the existing systems and provision made for an eventual review of this Directive, For direct operational satellite telvision broadcasting, and subsequent redistribution by cable, Member States shall take all measures by law or administrative action to ensure the use of only the following systems: - in the case of direct broadcasting by satellite of television programmes, the MAC/packet systems referred to in the first indent and note 2 of recommendation AE/650 of the CCIR entitled Television standard for satellite broadcasting in the channels defined by WARC BS-77 and RARC SAT-83, approved at the 16th plenary assembly at Dubrovnik, May 1986 (i.e. the C-MAC/packet system or the D2-MAC/packet system), - in the case of redistribution by cable of these programmes, the MAC cable system corresponding to the satellite broadcasting system should be preferred. However, television redistribution by cable may continue to use existing techniques, conversion from the MAC/packet sstem used for the satellite broadcast link being made at the receiver terminal incorporated in the cable network, - any systems which evolve from those MAC/packet systems referred to in the first and second indent, which are subsequently defined by the European standardization bodies and/or the competent international bodies and which are operationally compatible with them. Member States shall select the system or systems of the MAC/packet family which is or are more appropriate to the present or future structure of their direct broadcasting by satellite or cable distribution networks and shall inform the Commission of their selection. For the purposes of this Directive, direct broadcasting by satellite means a broadcasting satellite service as defined in the Radio Regulations of the International Telecommunications Union, i.e. using channels assigned to Member States in the 11,7 to 12,5 GHz band at the World Broadcasting Satellite Administrative Radio Conference (Geneva 1977) and intended for display on 625 lines domestic TV receivers. This Directive shall apply until 31 December 1991 at the latest. The Commisison is invited to submit to the Council, in advance of that date, proposals for measures to be adopted for the replacement of this Directive. This Directive is addressed to the Member States.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 893/95 of 24 April 1995 providing for the grant of compensation to producers' organizations in respect of tuna delivered to the canning industry during the period 1 April to 30 June 1994 THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3759/92 of 17 December 1992 on the common organization of the market in fishery and aquaculture products (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 3318/94 (2), and in particular Article 18 (8) thereof, Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3813/92 of 28 December 1992 on the unit of account and the conversion rates to be applied for the purposes of the common agricultural policy (3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 150/95 of 30 January 1995 (4), and in particular Articles 12 and 13 (1) thereof, Whereas the compensation referred to in Article 18 of Regulation (EEC) No 3759/92 is granted, under certain conditions, to Community tuna producers' organizations in respect of quantities of tuna delivered to the canning industry during the calendar quarter for which prices were recorded, where both the average quarterly price recorded on the Community market and the free-at-frontier price plus any applicable countervailing charge are lower than 93 % of the Community producer price for the product in question; Whereas examination of the situation of the Community market has shown that for two species of the product in question, for the period 1 April to 30 June 1994, both the average quarterly market price and the free-at-frontier price referred to in Article 18 of Regulation (EEC) No 3759/92 were lower than 93 % of the Community producer price in force as laid down in Commission Regulation (EC) No 281/94 of 8 February 1994 adjusting the prices fixed in ecus in the fishery products sector for the 1994 fishing year as a result of the monetary realignments (5); Whereas the quantities eligible for compensation, within the meaning of Article 18 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 3759/92, may not under any circumstances exceed, for the quarter concerned, the limits laid down in paragraph 4 of that Article; Whereas during the quarter concerned the quantities sold and delivered to the canning industry established in Community customs territory were higher overall than 62,8 % of the quantities of tuna used by the industry during the same quarter and, for yellowfin tuna weighing more than 10 kg, more than 110 % of those sold and delivered during the same quarter of the fishing years 1984 to 1986; whereas since these quantities exceed the limit set by the first indent of Article 18 (4) of Regulation (EEC) No 3759/92 for bigeye tuna and by the third indent of that Article for yellowfin tuna weighing over 10 kg, the total quantities of those products eligible for compensation should therefore be limited and allocated between the producers' organizations concerned in proportion to their respective outputs during the same quarter of the 1984 to 1986 fishing years; Whereas the granting of compensation for the product in question should therefore be decided for the period 1 April to 30 June 1994; Whereas Article 9 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2381/89 (6) stipulates that the agricultural conversion rate applicable to the compensatory allowance for tuna for canning shall be that in force on the day the product is sold; whereas the agricultural conversion rate for the period 1 October to 31 December 1993 is, pursuant to Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1209/93 (7), affected by a correcting factor of 1,207509; whereas this must be taken into account in the compensation rate set; Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Fishery Products, The compensatory allowance referred to in Article 18 of Regulation (EEC) No 3759/92 shall be granted for the period 1 April to 30 June 1994 in respect of the following products: >TABLE> 1. The total quantities on which the allowance may be granted are: - Yellowfin tuna larger than 10 kg: 27 104 tonnes, - Bigeye tuna: 1 440 tonnes. 2.

COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) N° 1327/90 of 14 May 1990 amending Regulation (EEC) No 1442/88 on the granting, for the 1988/89 to 1995/96 wine years, of permanent abandonment premiums in respect of wine-growing areas THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 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 Article 14 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 1442/88 (4) provides that 70 % of expenditure borne by the Member States in granting abandonment premiums is to be reimbursed by the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund; whereas up till now, 50 % of that reimbursement comes from the Guarantee Section and 50 % from the Guidance Section; whereas the rules for apportioning the burden between the Guidance and Guarantee Sections for the following period need to be revised; Whereas the first period of application of the measures laid down in Regulation (EEC) No 1442/88 shows that the existing financing mechanism does not enable premiums to be paid quickly to wine-growers since it is difficult to provide the paying agencies in the Member States with the necessary sums, which leads to considerable delays; whereas, under these circumstances, abandonment premiums lose their attraction to a large extent for producers and the aim of restoring balance to the market by this means is jeopardized, particularly as the most recent information regarding the consumption of wine is hardly encouraging; whereas everything should be done to ensure that the anticipated results are realized in order to avoid massive intervention to absorb the surplus and from 1 January 1990 premiums for the permanent abandonment of wine-growing areas should be deemed intervention intended to stabilize the agricultural markets, The following Article is hereby inserted in Regulation (EEC) No 1442/88: 'Article 17a Articles 14, 15, 16 and 17 shall apply to grubbing-up operations carried out up to 31 December 1989 at the latest. The payment of permanent abandonment premiums as provided for in Article 1 in respect of any abandonment operation carried out between 1 January 1990 and 31 December 1992 shall be deemed intervention intended to stabilize the agricultural markets within the meaning of Article 1 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 729/70 of the Council of 21 April 1970 on the financing of the common agricultural policy (*), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) N° 2048/88 (**).

The requests for drawing, with the indication of the date of acceptance of the said declaration, must be communicated to the Commission without delay. The drawings are granted by the Commission on the basis of the date of acceptance of the declaration of entry into free circulation by the customs authorities of the Member State concerned, to the extent that the available balance so permits. If a Member State does not use the quantities drawn, it shall return them as soon as possible to the tariff quota. If the quantities requested are greater than the available balance of the tariff quota, allocation shall be made on a pro rata basis with respect to the requests. Member States shall be informed by the Commission of the drawings made. Article 4 Each Member State shall ensure that importers of the product concerned have equal and continuous access to the quota for such time as the residual balance of the quota volume so permits.

(2) The Stabilisation and Association Agreement between the European Communities and their Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of Croatia, of the other part, approved by Council and Commission Decision 2005/40/EC, Euratom (3), the Stabilisation and Association Agreement between the European Communities and their Member States, of the one part, and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, of the other part, approved by Council and Commission Decision 2004/239/EC, Euratom (4) and the Interim Agreement with Montenegro, approved by Council Decision 2007/855/EC of 15 December 2007 on the conclusion of an Interim Agreement on trade and trade-related matters between the European Community, of the one part, and the Republic of Montenegro, of the other part (5), lay down annual preferential tariff quotas of ‘baby beef’ of 9 400 tonnes, 1 650 and 800 tonnes respectively. (3) Article 2 of Council Regulation (EC) No 2248/2001 of 19 November 2001 on certain procedures for applying the Stabilisation and Association Agreement between the European Communities and their Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of Croatia, of the other part and for applying the Interim Agreement between the European Community and the Republic of Croatia (6) and Article 2 of Council Regulation (EC) No 153/2002 of 21 January 2002 on certain procedures for applying the Stabilisation and Association Agreement between the European Communities and their Member States, of the one part, and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, of the other part, and for applying the Interim Agreement between the European Community and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (7) provide that detailed rules for the implementation of concessions on ‘baby beef’ should be laid down.

98/527/EC, Euratom: Commission Decision of 24 July 1998 on the treatment for national accounts purposes of VAT fraud (the discrepancies between theoretical VAT receipts and actual VAT receipts) (notified under document number C(1998) 2202) (Text with EEA relevance)
COMMISSION DECISION of 24 July 1998 on the treatment for national accounts purposes of VAT fraud (the discrepancies between theoretical VAT receipts and actual VAT receipts) (notified under document number C(1998) 2202) (Text with EEA relevance) (98/527/EC, Euratom) THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community, Having regard to Council Directive 89/130/EEC, Euratom, of 13 February 1989 on the harmonisation of the compilation of gross national product at market prices (1), and in particular Article 1 thereof, Whereas Commission Decision 94/168/EC, Euratom, of 22 February 1994 on measures to be taken for the implementation of Council Directive 89/130/EEC, Euratom on the harmonization of the compilation of gross national product at market prices (2), relates in particular to tax evasion but does not explicitly describe how VAT evasion should be treated; whereas it is therefore appropriate to describe how such evasion should be treated; Whereas, in order to ensure the exhaustiveness of their GDP and GNP estimates in accordance with Directive 89/130/EEC, Euratom, the Member States need to adjust those estimates so as to take VAT evasion into account; Whereas such adjustment relates to that component of the discrepancies between theoretical VAT receipts and actual VAT receipts which is attributable to evasion not involving the connivance of the buyer ('without complicity`); Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are compatible with the opinion of the committee set up by Article 6 of Directive 89/130/EEC, Euratom, The Member States shall calculate the value of VAT evasion 'without complicity` by applying the methods set out in the Annex to this Decision. For the purposes of the above-mentioned calculation, the Member States shall determine theoretical VAT receipts and actual VAT receipts and calculate the discrepancy between these two amounts, by applying the following formula: Evasion 'without complicity` = Theoretical VAT receipts less actual VAT receipts less time differences less insolvencies less missing revenue (evasion 'with complicity`) The Member States shall adjust, if necessary, the amount of value added included in their GDP and GNP estimates made in accordance with Directive 89/130/EEC, Euratom by adding to it the value, calculated using the above formula, of evasion 'without complicity`. In order to make the adjustment described in Article 1, the Member States may apply a method which is equivalent to that described in the first subparagraph of Article 1, and which produces comparable results. The Member States shall, no later than 1 October 1998, provide the Commission with an explanation of the sources and methods applied and state the value of the adjustments made. The Commission shall, in accordance with Article 19 of Council Regulation (EEC, Euratom) No 1552/89 (3), examine the validity of the sources and methods used and the adjustments made, and the comparability of the results obtained, particularly in cases where, in accordance with Article 2, the method described in the first subparagraph of Article 1 has not been used. The time limit for the new Member States (Austria, Finland and Sweden) is fixed at 1 October 1999. If a Member State can demonstrate to the Commission that the equivalent calculation is already implicit in its accounts, Article 1 shall have no effect. Any Member State wishing to follow this route shall supply full documentation to the Commission by 1 October 1998 (for Austria, Finland and Sweden: 1 October 1999). The Commission shall inform the GNP Committee on the outcome of the implementation of this Decision and, in particular, on the methods used by the Member States. This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 1790/86 of 10 June 1986 derogating from Regulation (EEC) No 2042/75 concerning the length of validity of export licences for cereal-based compound feedingstuffs for animals THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2727/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common organization of the market in cereals (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1355/86 (2), and in particular Article 12 (2) thereof, Whereas Annex II to Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2042/75 (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3536/84 (4), fixes the period of validity of export licences for cereal-based compound feedingstuffs, among other products listed in Article 1 (d) of Regulation (EEC) No 2727/75, up to the end of the fourth month following that in which the licence was issued; Whereas Article 8 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2743/75 (5) as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 2560/77 (6), states that when the export refund is fixed in advance it must be adjusted according to the threshold price for maize applicable on the date of export; whereas however this might lead to an advantageous position for exports after 30 June 1986 of compound feedingstuffs based on cereals other than maize and it is therefore necessary to limit the validity of licences for export of cereal-based compound feedingstuffs to the end of June 1986; Whereas this measure will make it possible to re-establish advance fixing of export licences for the products in question which was suspended by Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1488/86 (7); Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Cereals, Notwithstanding Annex II of Regulation (EEC) No 2042/75, the last day of validity of export licences, issued up to 30 June 1986, for products falling within subheading 23.07 B I of the Common Customs Tariff, shall be not later than 30 June 1986. Regulation (EEC) No 1488/86 is hereby repealed. This Regulation shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1184/2001 of 15 June 2001 fixing export refunds on nuts
Commission Regulation (EC) No 1184/2001 of 15 June 2001 fixing export refunds on nuts THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2200/96 of 28 October 1996 on the common organisation of the market in fruit and vegetables(1), as last amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No 718/2001(2), and in particular Article 35(3) thereof, Whereas: (1) Commission Regulation (EC) No 2190/96(3), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 298/2000(4), lays down detailed rules on export refunds on fruit and vegetables. (2) Article 35(1) of Regulation (EC) No 2200/96 provides that, to the extent necessary for economically significant quantities of the products listed in that Article to be exported, the difference between the international market prices for those products and their prices in the Community may be covered by export refunds. (3) Article 35(4) of Regulation (EC) No 2200/96 provides that refunds must be fixed in the light of the existing situation or the outlook for fruit and vegetable prices on the Community market and supplies available on the one hand, and prices on the international market on the other hand. Account must also be taken of the costs referred to in Article 35(4)(b) of that Regulation and of the economic aspect of the exports planned. (4) Pursuant to Article 35(1) of Regulation (EC) No 2200/96, refunds are to be set with due regard to the limits resulting from agreements concluded in accordance with Article 300 of the Treaty. (5) In accordance with Article 35(5) of Regulation (EC) No 2200/96, prices on the Community market are to be established in the light of the most favourable prices from the export standpoint. International trade prices are to be established in the light of the prices referred to in the second subparagraph of that paragraph. (6) The international trade situation or the special requirements of certain markets may call for the refund on a given product to vary according to its destination. (7) Shelled almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts in shell can currently be exported in economically significant quantities. (8) Compared with other fruit and vegetables, nuts are relatively easy to store. Export refunds can accordingly be fixed for longer periods with a view to rational management of the arrangements. (9) The application of the abovementioned rules to the present and forecast market situation, and in particular to fruit and vegetable prices in the Community and international trade, gives the refund rates set out in the Annex hereto. (10) Pursuant to Article 35(2) of Regulation (EC) No 2200/96, the resources available should be used as efficiently as possible while avoiding discrimination between traders. Therefore, care should be taken not to disturb the trade flows previously induced by the refund arrangements. For those reasons and because of the seasonal nature of exports of fruit and vegetables, quotas should be fixed for each product. (11) Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3846/87(5), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 2849/2000(6), establishes an agricultural product nomenclature for export refunds. (12) Commission Regulation (EC) No 1291/2000(7) lays down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance fixing certificates for agricultural products. (13) Owing to the market situation, in order to make the most efficient use of the resources available and given the structure of Community exports, the most appropriate method should be selected for export refunds on certain products and certain destinations and consequently refunds under the A 1 and A 2 licence arrangements referred to in Article 1 of Regulation (EC) No 2190/96 should not be fixed simultaneously for the export period in question. (14) The quantities laid down for the various products should be distributed in accordance with the different systems for the grant of the refund, taking account in particular of their perishability. (15) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the Management Committee for Fresh Fruit and Vegetables, 1. The export refunds on nuts shall be as set out in the Annex hereto. 2. Quantities covered by licences issued for food aid as referred to in Article 16 of Regulation (EC) No 1291/2000 shall not count against the eligible quantities covered by the Annex. 3. Without prejudice to the application of Article 4(5) of Regulation (EC) No 2190/96, the term of validity of A 1 licences shall be three months. This Regulation shall enter into force on 24 June 2001. This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

2009/291/EC: Commission Decision of 20 March 2009 concerning the draft Regulations from Ireland on the labelling of country of origin of poultrymeat, pigmeat and sheepmeat (notified under document number C(2009) 1931) (Text with EEA relevance)
25.3.2009 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 79/42 COMMISSION DECISION of 20 March 2009 concerning the draft Regulations from Ireland on the labelling of country of origin of poultrymeat, pigmeat and sheepmeat (notified under document number C(2009) 1931) (Only the English text is authentic) (Text with EEA relevance) (2009/291/EC) THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Directive 2000/13/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 March 2000 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the labelling, presentation and advertising of foodstuffs (1), last amended by Directive 2003/89/EC (2), and in particular Articles 19 and 20 thereof, Whereas: (1) In accordance with the procedure provided for in the second paragraph of Article 19, Directive 2000/13/EC, the Irish authorities notified the Commission on 25 June 2008 of a draft Health Regulations concerning the mandatory labelling of the country of origin of poultrymeat, pigmeat and sheepmeat. (2) The draft Regulations require all poultrymeat, pigmeat and sheepmeat, and foods containing at least 70 % by weight of these meats to be labelled to indicate their country of origin in clear legible type in Irish and/or English language. ‘Origin’ is defined as the country in which the animal was reared for most of its life and, if different, the country where it was slaughtered. (3) Directive 2000/13/EC harmonises the rules governing the labelling of foodstuffs by making provision for, on the one hand, harmonisation of certain national provisions and, secondly, arrangements for non-harmonised national provisions. The scope of harmonisation is defined in Article 3(1), which lists all the particulars that are compulsory on the labelling of foodstuffs ‘in accordance with Articles 4 to 17 and subject to the exceptions contained therein’. Furthermore, Article 4(2) provides that other particulars in addition to those listed in Article 3(1) may be required, in the case of specified foodstuffs, by Community provisions or, in their absence, by national provisions. (4) Article 18(2) of Directive 2000/13/EC allows the adoption of non-harmonised national provisions if they are justified on one of the grounds listed therein, including, inter alia, the prevention of fraud and the protection of public health, and provided they are not of such a nature as to impede application of the definitions and rules laid down by Directive 2000/13/EC; therefore where draft national labelling provisions have been proposed in a Member State, it is necessary to examine their compatibility with the above-mentioned requirements and the provisions of the Treaty establishing the European Community. (5) In accordance with Article 3(1) point 8 of Directive 2000/13/EC the indication of the place of origin or provenance is mandatory ‘where failure to give such particulars might mislead the consumer to a material degree as to the true origin or provenance of the foodstuff’. This provision, by providing an obligation to indicate the origin or the provenance of a food where other indications on the label of a given product could imply that such product comes from a different origin, provides an appropriate mechanism to counter the risk of consumers being misled. (6) In the case of poultrymeat, pigmeat and sheepmeat, the grounds presented by the Irish authorities do not allow for the conclusion that Irish consumers might, as a general rule, erroneously think that the products concerned come from a certain place. (7) Ireland has not provided any evidence that the draft Regulations are necessary to attain one of the objectives of the above-mentioned Article 18 or that the obstacle thus created is proportionate. It mentions only the aim of informing consumers on the origin of the products concerned. This ground alone is not sufficient to justify the draft Regulations. (8) In light of these observations, the Commission has delivered a negative opinion pursuant to Article 19, third paragraph of Directive 2000/13/EC. (9) The Irish authorities should accordingly be requested not to adopt the draft Regulations in question. (10) The measures provided for in this Decision are in line with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health, Ireland shall not adopt the draft Health (Country of Origin of Poultrymeat, Pigmeat and Sheepmeat) Regulations. This Decision is addressed to Ireland.

(2) Each year the Commission is required to determine essential uses for these controlled substances, the quantities that may be used and the companies that may use them. (3) Decision IV/25 of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, hereinafter ‘the Montreal Protocol’, sets out the criteria used by the Commission for determining any essential uses and authorises the production and consumption necessary to satisfy essential uses of controlled substances in each Party. (4) Decision XIX/13 of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol authorises the production in the European Community of 200 tonnes of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in 2008 for the manufacturing and use of Metered-Dose Inhalers (MDIs) qualifying for essential uses of CFCs as defined in Decision IV/25. (5) Decision XIX/18 of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol authorises the production and consumption necessary to satisfy essential uses of controlled substances listed in Annexes A, B and C (Group II and III substances) of the Montreal Protocol for laboratory and analytical uses as listed in Annex IV to the report of the Seventh Meeting of the Parties, subject to the conditions set out in Annex II to the report of the Sixth Meeting of the Parties, as well as Decisions VII/11, XI/15 and XV/5 of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol. Decision XVII/10 of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol authorises the production and consumption of the controlled substance listed in Annex E of the Montreal Protocol necessary to satisfy laboratory and analytical uses of methyl bromide. (6) Pursuant to paragraph 3 of Decision XII/2 of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on measures to facilitate the transition to chlorofluorocarbon-free MDIs, all Member States have notified (2) the United Nations Environment Programme the active ingredients for which chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are no longer essential for the manufacture of CFC-MDIs for placing on the market of the European Community. (7) Article 4(4)(i)(b) of Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 prevents CFCs from being used and placed on the market unless they are considered essential under the conditions described in Article 3(1) of that Regulation. These non-essentiality determinations have therefore reduced the demand for CFCs used in MDIs that are placed on the market of the European Community. In addition, Article 4(6) of Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 prevents CFC-MDI products being imported and placed on the market unless the CFCs in these products are considered essential under the conditions described in Article 3(1). (8) The Commission has published a Notice (3) on the 18 July 2007 to those companies in the Community of 27 Member States that request consideration by the Commission for the use of controlled substances for essential uses in the Community in 2008 and has received declarations on intended essential uses of controlled substances for 2008. (9) For the purpose of ensuring that interested companies and operators may continue to benefit in due time from the licensing system, it is appropriate that the present decision shall apply from 1 January 2008. (10) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee established by Article 18(1) of Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000, 1.   The quantity of controlled substances of Group I (chlorofluorocarbons 11, 12, 113, 114 and 115) subject to Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 which may be used for essential medical uses in the Community in 2008 shall be 155 460,00 ozone-depleting potential (ODP) kilograms. 2.   The quantity of controlled substances of Group I (chlorofluorocarbons 11, 12, 113, 114 and 115) and Group II (other fully halogenated chlorofluorocarbons) subject to Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 which may be used for essential laboratory uses in the Community in 2008 shall be 56 213,60 ODP kilograms. 3.   The quantity of controlled substances of Group III (halons) subject to Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 that may be used for essential laboratory use in the Community in 2008 shall be 418,7 ODP kilograms. 4.   The quantity of controlled substances of Group IV (carbon tetrachloride) subject to Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 that may be used for essential laboratory uses in the Community in 2008 shall be 150 832,836 ODP kilograms. 5.   The quantity of controlled substances of Group V (1,1,1-trichloroethane) subject to Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 that may be used for essential laboratory uses in the European Union in 2008 shall be 381,5 ODP kilograms. 6.   The quantity of controlled substances of Group VI (methyl bromide) subject to Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 that may be used for laboratory and analytical uses in the Community in 2008 shall be 150,00 ODP kilograms. 7.   The quantity of controlled substances of Group VII (hydrobromofluorocarbons) subject to Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 that may be used for essential laboratory uses in the Community in 2008 shall be 0,96 ODP kilograms. 8.   The quantity of controlled substances of group IX (bromochloromethane) subject to Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 that may be used for essential laboratory uses in the Community in 2008 shall be 13,368 ODP kilograms. The chlorofluorocarbon metered-dose inhalers listed in Annex I shall not be placed on markets where the Competent Authority has determined chlorofluorocarbons for metered-dose inhalers on those markets to be non-essential. During the period 1 January to 31 December 2008 the following rules shall apply: 1.

Commission Regulation (EEC) No 920/90 of 10 April 1990 amending Regulation (EEC) No 1738/89 laying down detailed rules on production aid for durum wheat
COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 920/90 of 10 April 1990 amending Regulation (EEC) No 1738/89 laying down detailed rules on production aid for durum wheat THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2727/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common organization of the market in cereals (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 201/90 (2), and in particular Article 10 (5) thereof, Whereas Council Regulation (EEC) No 3103/76 of 16 December 1976 on aid for durum wheat (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1216/89 (4), lays down general rules on aid for durum wheat; Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1738/89 (5) lays down detailed rules on production aid for durum wheat and in particular the percentage of aid applications to be checked by the Member States; whereas experience has shown that the percentages laid down may in certain cases prove very difficult to observe; whereas the minimum number of checks to be conducted should therefore be reduced; Whereas, moreover, production aid for durum wheat was introduced in the region of Thrace in Greece from the 1989/90 marketing year; whereas the aid granted in Spain is less than that applying in the rest of the Community; whereas in that Member State the level of aid is to be adjusted in line with the level in the Community during the 1992/93 marketing year; whereas that situation logically implies an increase in areas sown in the regions concerned; whereas this should be taken into account when Regulation (EEC) No 1738/89 is applied; Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Cereals, Regulation (EEC) No 1738/89 is hereby amended as follows: 1. Article 6 is replaced by the following: 'Article 6 1. The checks provided for in Article 5 of Regulation (EEC) No 3103/76 shall, in each competent administrative unit, cover a percentage of applications submitted which is representative of both the various sizes of holding and of the geographical and topographical distribution of the areas concerned. 2. The percentage of applications to be checked may in no case be less than: - 10 % of applications relating to areas of less than 50 hectares, - 35 % of applications relating to areas equal to or greater than 50 hectares. The percentages given above shall be increased to 15 % and 50 % respectively where, in an administrative unit: - checks on aid applications reveal, in respect of each group of holdings as referred to in the first subparagraph and taken separately, that the area actually cultivated is less than 96 % of the area declared in the applications checked, or - the total area declared is more than 15 % more than that given by applications accepted for the preceding marketing year. However, the second indent of the second subparagraph shall apply: - in Greece in the region of Thrace, from the 1991/92 marketing year only, - in Spain in all regions concerned, from the 1993/94 marketing year only.' 2. The last sentence of Article 8 (2) is replaced by the following: 'In addition, applicants shall not qualify for aid for the following marketing year.' This Regulation shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities. It shall apply to applications lodged in respect of the 1990/91 and following marketing years. However, Article 6 (1) and the second indent of the first subparagraph of Article 6 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 1738/89 shall also apply to applications submitted in respect of the 1989/90 marketing year. This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 1632/90 of 15 June 1990 re-establishing the levying of customs duties applicable to third countries on certain products originating in Yugoslavia THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, Having regard to the Cooperation Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (1), and in particular Protocol 1 thereto, Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3606/89 of 20 November 1989 establishing ceilings and Community surveillance for imports of certain products originating in Yugoslavia (1990) (2), and in particular Article 1 thereof, Whereas the abovementioned Protocol 1 and Article 15 of the Cooperation Agreement provide that the products listed in the Annex hereto are imported exempt of customs duty into the Community, subject to the ceiling shown in the Annex hereto, above which the customs duties applicable to third countries may be re-established; Whereas imports into the Community of those products, originating in Yugoslavia, have reached that ceiling; whereas the situation on the Community market requires that customs duties applicable to third countries on the products in question be re-established, From 22 June to 31 December 1990, the levying of customs duties applicable to third countries shall be re-established on imports into the Community of the products listed in the Annex, originating in Yugoslavia. This Regulation shall enter into force on the third day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

Commission Regulation (EC) No 907/2006 of 20 June 2006 amending Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council on detergents, in order to adapt Annexes III and VII thereto (Text with EEA relevance)
21.6.2006 EN Official Journal of the European Union L 168/5 COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 907/2006 of 20 June 2006 amending Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council on detergents, in order to adapt Annexes III and VII thereto (Text with EEA relevance) THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES , Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 31 March 2004 on detergents (1), and in particular Article 13(1) thereof, Whereas: (1) Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 ensures the free circulation of detergents on the internal market while at the same time providing a high level of protection to the environment and to human health by laying down rules for the ultimate biodegradation of surfactants for detergents, and for the labelling of detergent ingredients. (2) Some of the methods laid down in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 648/2004, e.g. the ISO 14593 reference method, are also applicable for testing substances that are poorly-soluble in water, if adequate dispersion of the substance is ensured. More guidance for testing poorly-soluble substances is given in ISO 10634. However, an additional test method should be introduced for use with surfactants that are poorly-soluble in water. The additional test method proposed is ISO standard 10708:1997 ‘Water quality — Evaluation in an aqueous medium of the ultimate aerobic biodegradability of organic compounds’. The Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks (SCHER) concluded that ISO 10708 is of an equivalent standard to the test methods already included in Annex III to that Regulation and was in favour of its use. (3) To ensure a high level of health protection, information concerning detergent composition needs to be made more easily available to the general public. The address of a website should therefore be provided on the packaging of the detergent from which the list of ingredients mentioned in Section D of Annex VII to Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 can be easily obtained. (4) There is a requirement to declare allergenic fragrances if they are added in the form of pure substances. However there is no requirement to declare them if they are added as constituents of complex ingredients such as essential oils or perfumes. To ensure better transparency to the consumer, allergenic fragrances in detergents should be declared irrespective of the way they are added to the detergent. (5) The list of ingredients intended for the general public that is given in section D of Annex VII to Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 requires the use of specialised scientific nomenclature that may hinder rather than help the general public. Moreover, there are some minor inconsistencies between the information made available to the general public compared to that to be made available to medical personnel under section C of the same Annex. The ingredient information for the general public should be made more easily understandable by using the INCI nomenclature already in use for cosmetic ingredients, and sections C and D should be made compatible. (6) The definition of ‘detergent’ in the Regulation makes it clear that the rules on labelling apply to all detergents whether they contain surfactants or not. However, section D of Annex VII to Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 lays down different rules for those industrial and institutional detergents that contain surfactants compared with those that do not. This difference in labelling requirements serves no useful purpose and should be eliminated. (7) Annexes III and VII to Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 should be amended accordingly. In the interest of clarity it is appropriate to replace those Annexes. (8) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the detergents Committee, Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 is amended as follows: 1. Annex III is replaced by the text set out in Annex I to this Regulation. 2. Annex VII is replaced by the text set out in Annex II to this Regulation. Entry into force This Regulation shall enter into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. (2) shall apply from the day falling six months after the entry into force of this Regulation. This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Dataset Card for the EUR-Lex dataset

Dataset Summary

EURLEX57K can be viewed as an improved version of the dataset released by Mencia and Furnkranzand (2007), which has been widely used in Large-scale Multi-label Text Classification (LMTC) research, but is less than half the size of EURLEX57K (19.6k documents, 4k EUROVOC labels) and more than ten years old. EURLEX57K contains 57k legislative documents in English from EUR-Lex (https://eur-lex.europa.eu) with an average length of 727 words. Each document contains four major zones:

  • the header, which includes the title and name of the legal body enforcing the legal act;
  • the recitals, which are legal background references; and
  • the main body, usually organized in articles.

Labeling / Annotation

All the documents of the dataset have been annotated by the Publications Office of EU (https://publications.europa.eu/en) with multiple concepts from EUROVOC (http://eurovoc.europa.eu/). While EUROVOC includes approx. 7k concepts (labels), only 4,271 (59.31%) are present in EURLEX57K, from which only 2,049 (47.97%) have been assigned to more than 10 documents. The 4,271 labels are also divided into frequent (746 labels), few-shot (3,362), and zero- shot (163), depending on whether they were assigned to more than 50, fewer than 50 but at least one, or no training documents, respectively.

Supported Tasks and Leaderboards

The dataset supports:

Multi-label Text Classification: Given the text of a document, a model predicts the relevant EUROVOC concepts.

Few-shot and Zero-shot learning: As already noted, the labels can be divided into three groups: frequent (746 labels), few-shot (3,362), and zero- shot (163), depending on whether they were assigned to more than 50, fewer than 50 but at least one, or no training documents, respectively.

Languages

All documents are written in English.
