COMMISSION REGULATION (EEC) No 574/86

of 28 February 1986

laying down detailed rules for the application of the supplementary trade mechanism (STM)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to the Act of Accession of Spain and Portugal,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 569/86 of 25 February 1986 laying down general rules of application of the supplementary trade mechanism (1), and in particular Article 7 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 3792/85 of 20 December 1986 laying down arrangements applying to trade in agricultural products between Spain and Portugal (2), and in particular Article 13 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2727/75 of 29 October 1975 on the common organization of the market in cereals (3), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3793/85 (4), and in particular Articles 12 (2), 15 (5), 16 (6) and Article 24 thereof, and the corresponding provisions in the other regulations on the common organization of the markets in agricultural products,

Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 569/86 provides for the use of STM licences and STM import licences for the purposes of the management of the supplementary trade mechanism; whereas, when detailed rules of application of the STM are being established, reference should be made, as far as possible, to the rules laid down by Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3183/80 of 3 December 1980 laying down common detailed rules for the application of the system of import and export licences and advance fixing certificates for agricultural products (5), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1994/84 (6);

Whereas, however, in particular with regard to the issue of licences, exceptions should be made to these rules to enable the quantities fixed under the STM to be properly administered;

Whereas the supplementary trade mechanism provides that certain agricultural products will be subject to a guide quantity and that others will be subject only to an indicative ceiling; whereas the guide quantities and the relevant control measures will apply only until 31 December 1989;

Whereas an indication should be given as to the customs statuses of the products to which the STM applies;

Whereas all imports into the Community of Ten of certain products covered by Regulation (EEC) No 337/79 of 5 February 1979 concerning the common organization of the market in wine (7), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3805/85 (8), are subject to the presentation of an import certificate; whereas imports of wine sector products into the Community of Ten which take place after 1 March 1986 from third countries must be carried out under cover of an STM import licence; whereas in the hope of both avoiding trade being hindered and an increase in the related administrative formalities, it seems appropriate to foresee that import certificates delivered before 1 March 1986 shall be substituted, for the period of their validity, for STM import licences.

Whereas the relevant management committees have not delivered opinons within the time limits set by their chairmen,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

TITLE I

Field of application

Article 1

1. This Regulation lays down, without prejudice to provisions derogating therefrom in Community instruments specific to certain products, common detailed rules for the application of the supplementary trade mechanism (hereinafter called 'the STM') provided for in Regulation (EEC) No 569/86.

3. At the request of the party entered in box 12 of the STM licence, the Member States may release the security in parts proportionate to the quantities of products for which the proof referred to in paragraph 1 has been given, on condition that proof has been given that at least 5 % of the net quantity entered on the licences has been entered for home use.

4. Subject to Articles 36 and 37 of Regulation (EEC) No 3183/80, where the primary requirement has not been complied with, the security shall be forfeit by an amount equal to the difference between:

However, if the net quantity entered for home use is less than 5 % of the net quantity entered on the licence, the whole security shall be forfeit.

If the total amount of the security which would otherwise be forfeit is no more than 5 ECU for one licence, the Member State may release the whole security.

2. Where, following the application of a prohibition measure, the licence can no longer be used in the Member State indicated, the security corresponding to the quantities not used shall be released at the request of the parties concerned.
