COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 985/81 of 9 April 1981 laying down detailed rules on the sale of frozen beef and veal for export from intervention stocks and amending Regulation (EEC) No 1687/76

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 805/68 of 27 June 1968 on the common organization of the market in beef and veal (1), as last amended by the Act of Accession of Greece, and in particular Article 7 (3) thereof,

Whereas Council Regulation (EEC) No 98/69 (2), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 429/77 (3), makes provision for the disposal, by way of export, of frozen beef and veal held by intervention agencies ; whereas it is necessary for the sake of clarity to consolidate in a single instrument the detailed rules on sales adopted in Commission Regulation (EEC) No 298/80 (4), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 603/81 (5), and in Commission Regulation (EEC) No 227/81 (6);

Whereas, to ensure the economic management of stocks, it is necessary to specify that intervention agencies should always sell, as a first priority, meat that has been longest in storage;

Whereas a derogation should be made from the second subparagraph of Article 2 (2) of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2173/79 (7), in view of the administrative difficulties that the application of this rule causes in certain Member States;

Whereas the export of meat sold under this Regulation must be guaranteed by the lodging of a security, the amount of which may differ from that provided for in Article 15 of Regulation (EEC) No 2173/79 ; whereas such security shall be released when proof, as required by Article 12 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1687/76 (8), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 957/81 (9), has been furnished ; whereas that proof must be furnished within the time limit laid down in Article 31 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2730/79 (10), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3476/80 (11);

Whereas in order to facilitate export of the said meat it is necessary to lay down individual time limits for taking over and for export;

Whereas, under the Agreements between the Community and the Swiss Confederation and the Republic of Austria on implementation of the rules on Community transit, it is possible for Community transit documents to be issued in Switzerland and Austria;

Whereas specific measures must be implemented to ensure that meat exported to these countries or in transit through them to reach its destination is not reimported as a Community product;

Whereas meat thus exported is comparable to meat for which an export refund has been granted ; whereas such meat therefore cannot be reimported into the Community under the conditions set out in Article 3 (1) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 754/76 (12); whereas it should therefore be provided that if such meat is reimported an amount equal to the export security must be paid and is to be treated, in conformity with Article 2 of Council Regulation (EEC) No 352/78 (13), in the same way as a forfeited security;

Whereas products held by intervention agencies and intended for export are subject to the provisions of Regulation (EEC) No 1687/76;

Whereas the Management Committee for Beef and Veal has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Notwithstanding the second subparagraph of Article 2 (2) of Regulation (EEC) No 2173/79, purchase applications shall not indicate the store or stores where the meat applied for is being kept.

Article 3

1. Notwithstanding Article 15 (1) of Regulation (EEC) No 2173/79, the amount of the security shall be fixed at the time of each sale.

2. The security referred to in paragraph 1 shall be released when the proof provided for in Article 12 of Regulation (EEC) No 1687/76 is furnished.

In cases where no refund is granted on the meat referred to in Article 1: (a) if the country of destination is Switzerland or Austria, or if the meat must pass through either of these countries to reach its destination, the security referred to in Article 3 shall not be released until, in addition to the proof required by Article 12 of Regulation (EEC) No 1687/76, evidence is provided that the meat has been imported into a third country, unless it is lost in transit as a result of force majeure.
