COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 1152/78

OF 30 MAY 1978

AMENDING REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 516/77 ON THE COMMON ORGANIZATION OF THE MARKET IN PRODUCTS PROCESSED FROM FRUIT AND VEGETABLES

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 THE PRODUCER PRICES OF CERTAIN PRODUCTS PROCESSED FROM FRUIT AND VEGETABLES WHICH ARE OF PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN REGIONS OF THE COMMUNITY ARE CONSIDERABLY HIGHER THAN IN NON-MEMBER COUNTRIES ; WHEREAS THIS DIFFERENCE IN PRICES MAY WELL CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT FEW MARKETING YEARS ; WHEREAS COMMUNITY PRODUCTS SHOULD THEREFORE BE MADE MORE COMPETITIVE BY ADOPTING THE NECESSARY MEASURES TO ENABLE THEM TO BE SOLD AT PRICES WHICH COMPETE WITH THOSE CHARGED BY THE MAJOR NON-MEMBER PRODUCING COUNTRIES AND PROVISION MADE FOR THESE MEASURES TO BE REVIEWED BEFORE 1 OCTOBER 1982 ;

WHEREAS , TO THIS END , A SYSTEM OF PRODUCTION AID SHOULD BE INTRODUCED ENABLING THE PRODUCTS IN QUESTION TO BE MANUFACTURED AT A PRICE LOWER THAN THAT WHICH WOULD RESULT FROM THE PAYMENT OF A REMUNERATIVE PRICE TO PRODUCERS OF THE FRESH PRODUCTS ; WHEREAS THIS SYSTEM SHOULD BE LINKED TO A SYSTEM OF CONTRACTS PROVIDING BOTH FOR REGULAR SUPPLIES TO THE PROCESSING INDUSTRIES AND A MINIMUM PRICE TO BE PAID BY PROCESSORS TO PRODUCERS ;

WHEREAS , BECAUSE OF THE ABUNDANT SUPPLY OF RAW MATERIALS AND THE ELASTICITY OF PROCESSING CAPACITY , THERE IS A DANGER THAT THE GRANTING OF AID FOR THE PRODUCTION OF PROCESSED FRUIT AND VEGETABLES MIGHT ENCOURAGE SUCH PRODUCTION TO EXPAND CONSIDERABLY FROM YEAR TO YEAR ; WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO AVOID ANY DIFFICULTIES WHICH MIGHT RESULT IN THE SALE OF PROCESSED PRODUCTS , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF LIMITING THE GRANTING OF AID TO ONE PART OF PRODUCTION ;

WHEREAS , SINCE THE SYSTEM REFERRED TO ABOVE WOULD ALSO APPLY TO TOMATO CONCENTRATES , THE MINIMUM IMPORT PRICE SYSTEM FOR THAT PRODUCT SHOULD BE ABOLISHED ;

WHEREAS THE EXPENDITURE INCURRED BY MEMBER STATES AS RESULT OF THE OBLIGATIONS ARISING FROM APPLICATION OF THIS REGULATION IS CHARGEABLE TO THE COMMUNITY , IN ACCORDANCE WITH ARTICLE 3 OF COUNCIL REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 729/70 OF 21 APRIL 1970 ON THE FINANCING OF THE COMMON AGRICULTURAL POLICY ( 2 ), AS LAST AMENDED BY REGULATION ( EEC ) NO 2788/72 ( 3 ),

THE COUNCIL , ACTING BY A QUALIFIED MAJORITY ON A PROPOSAL FROM THE COMMISSION , MAY DECIDE TO AMEND ANNEX IA TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE PRODUCTION AND MARKETING CONDITIONS FOR THE PRODUCTS CONCERNED .

2 .

ON THEIR CONCLUSION , THE CONTRACTS SHALL BE FORWARDED TO THE BODIES DESIGNATED BY THE MEMBER STATES CONCERNED , WHICH SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SUPERVISING THE EXECUTION OF THE CONTRACTS .

3 . FOR DELIVERIES MADE UNDER SUCH CONTRACTS , A MINIMUM PRICE SHALL BE FIXED WHICH PROCESSORS MUST PAY TO PRODUCERS .

THIS PRICE SHALL BE CALCULATED FOR THE FIRST TIME ON THE BASIS OF :

( A ) THE AVERAGE OF THE PRICES PAID BY PROCESSORS FOR THE RAW MATERIAL DURING THE MARKETING YEAR PRECEDING THAT FOR WHICH THE MINIMUM PRICE IS FIXED ;

( B ) THE TREND IN PRODUCTION COSTS IN THE FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SECTOR .

IT SHALL BE CALCULATED ON SUBSEQUENT OCCASIONS HAVING REGARD TO :

( A ) THE MINIMUM PRICE IN FORCE DURING THE PREVIOUS MARKETING YEAR ;

( B ) THE TREND IN PRODUCTION COSTS IN THE FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SECTOR .

4 . THE MINIMUM PRICE SHALL BE FIXED BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF EACH MARKETING YEAR .

5 . WHERE THE COMMUNITY PRODUCTION POTENTIAL FOR A PRODUCT REFERRED TO IN ANNEX IA IS LIKELY TO CAUSE A MAJOR IMBALANCE BETWEEN PRODUCTION AND MARKETING POSSIBILITIES , THE COUNCIL , ACTING BY A QUALIFIED MAJORITY ON A PROPOSAL FROM THE COMMISSION , MAY DECIDE TO LIMIT THE GRANTING OF THE PRODUCTION AID TO A SPECIFIED QUANTITY , TAKING ACCOUNT OF AVERAGE PRODUCTION IN THE THREE YEARS PRECEDING THE MARKETING YEAR FOR WHICH THE AID IS FIXED .

ARTICLE 3B

2 . THE PRICES OF COMMUNITY PRODUCTS SHALL BE ESTABLISHED HAVING REGARD TO :

( A ) THE MINIMUM PRICE REFERRED TO IN ARTICLE 3A ;

( A ) THE FREE-AT-FRONTIER PRICES ON IMPORT TO THE COMMUNITY ;

4 . PRODUCTION AID SHALL BE GRANTED TO PROCESSORS WHO HAVE CONCLUDED CONTRACTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH ARTICLE 3A .
