COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2571/97 of 15 December 1997 on the sale of butter at reduced prices and the granting of aid for cream, butter and concentrated butter for use in the manufacture of pastry products, ice-cream and other foodstuffs
THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,
Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,
Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 804/68 of 27 June 1968 on the common organization of the market in milk and milk products (1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1587/96 (2), and in particular Articles 6 (6), 12 (3) and 28 thereof,
Whereas the butter market in the Community is encumbered by heavy surpluses; whereas Article 6 (3) of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68 provides for disposal of the butter bought in by the intervention agency; whereas Council Regulation (EEC) No 1723/81 (3), as amended by Regulation (EEC) No 863/84 (4), lays down general rules on measures intended to maintain the level of use of market butter by certain classes of consumer and undertakings;
Whereas Commission Regulation (EEC) No 570/88 (5), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 531/96 (6), provides for the sale of butter from intervention stocks at reduced prices and the granting of aid for cream, butter and concentrated butter for use in the manufacture of pastry products, ice-cream and other foodstuffs; whereas experience has shown that the arrangements need to be adjusted and simplified in order to improve the operation of the scheme;
Whereas, in order to ensure consistency with the definition of butter eligible for aid, it should be specified that cream must meet the conditions laid down in Article 6 (5) of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68 in order to qualify for aid;
Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 570/88 provides that market butter must be packaged even if, after manufacture, it is intended for incorporation in products other than final products in the same establishment; whereas this requirement is not necessary for control purposes and may be abolished in such cases; whereas the requirement concerning the packaging of certain final products in the form of uncooked dough or powder preparations may also be abolished where the products are transported direct to retailers for subsequent processing;
Whereas, in order to facilitate verification of compliance with the six-month time limit for incorporation of products under this scheme into final products, the number of the tendering procedure should be indicated on the packaging;
Whereas past experience with cream to which tracers have been added as a product eligible for aid shows that cream to which no tracers have been added can also be accepted as eligible if it is incorporated directly and exclusively into the final products covered by formula B; whereas the limit on the maximum fat content of cream may be abolished; whereas, in order to ensure that all operators are treated equally, the conditions regarding the perception of organoleptic tracers in cream should also apply to butter and concentrated butter, and the minimum dosage of such tracers in cream should be specified;
Whereas changes to the combined nomenclature and to the composition and nature of certain final products require adjustments to the descriptions of such products and the conditions to which they are subject;
Whereas the establishments at which the different manufacturing, processing and incorporation operations covered by this scheme are carried out must be approved; whereas, in order to obtain approval, establishments must meet a number of conditions and give various undertakings; whereas establishments which no longer meet the conditions should lose their approval; whereas, if an establishment fails to comply with its undertakings, its approval should be withdrawn for a period which reflects the seriousness of the irregularity;
Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 570/88 provides that products falling within CN codes 0401 to 0406 may not, except for a few products specifically indicated, be treated as intermediate products within the meaning of that Regulation; whereas experience has shown that there is no need to maintain these exceptions, except for recombined butter; whereas the definition of 'recombined butter` should take account of the different processes by which this product is manufactured, particularly to allow for the addition of cream to concentrated butter;
Whereas the addition of tracers to butter or cream, or incorporation of butter or cream into final products or intermediate products may take place in a Member State other than that of manufacture; whereas, in such cases, the Member State of destination must be able to ensure that the quality criteria have been complied with;
Whereas it seems appropriate to give operators the option, in the case of products to which tracers have been added, not to lodge a processing security if the aid is requested only after incorporation in final products and after checks have been carried out;
Whereas, in view of the lower level of aid henceforth applicable, the amount of the penalty to be imposed if the deadline for incorporation in final products is exceeded should be reduced;
Whereas the option provided for in Regulation (EEC) No 570/88 to fix a minimum basic selling price and/or maximum basic aid has not been taken up since it was introduced; whereas this option, together with Annex VII to that Regulation may be abolished;
Whereas reliable and regular data on the utilization of butter, cream and concentrated butter in intermediate and final products and on users and trade flows are essential for the proper management of the aid scheme; whereas the obligation to supply information laid down in Regulation (EEC) No 570/88 is limited and should therefore be widened;
Wheres, in order to enable the national authorities to fulfil their obligations to communicate information, approval of establishments should be made subject to the further condition that they undertake to supply the data required by the competent body;
Whereas Regulation (EEC) No 570/88 has been repeatedly and substantially amended; whereas, on the occasion of fresh amendments, it should be recast for the sake of clarity;
Whereas the operative events for the applicable agricultural conversion rate are laid down in Commission Regulation (EEC) No 1756/93 (7), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 569/96 (8);
Whereas the Management Committee for Milk and Milk Products has not delivered an opinion within the time limit set by its chairman,
HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

shall constitute primary requirements, against performance of which a tendering security of ECU 180 per tonne shall be lodged.
2. Tendering securities shall be lodged in the Member State in which the tender is submitted.
However, if the tender offer states, under Article 16 (2) (e), that incorporation into final products or, where appropriate, manufacture of concentrated butter or addition of tracers to butter, or manufacture of intermediate products will take place in a Member State other than the Member State in which the tender has been submitted, the security may be lodged with the competent authority designated by the other Member State, which shall issue to the tenderer the proof referred to in Article 16 (4) (e). In such cases, the intervention agency concerned shall inform the competent authority of the other Member State of the circumstances entailing release or forfeiture of the security.

Article 18
1. A minimum selling price shall be fixed for intervention butter and maximum aid shall be fixed for cream, butter or concentrated butter in the light of the tenders received in response to each individual invitation to tender and in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 30 of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68. The price or aid thus fixed may vary according to:
(a) the intended use (formula A or formula B),
(b) the fat content of the butter,
(c) the incorporation procedure to be followed in accordance with Article 3.
In accordance with the procedure defined in Article 30 of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68, a decision may be taken to make no award in respect of an invitation to tender.
2. At the same time as the minimum selling price(s) or maximum amount(s) of aid is/are fixed and under the procedure defined in Article 30 of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68, the amount(s) of the processing security shall be fixed per 100 kilograms by reference either to the difference between the intervention price of butter and the minimum prices fixed or to the amounts of aid.
The purpose of the processing security shall be to ensure performance of the primary requirements concerning either:
(a) for intervention butter:
(i) the processing of the butter into concentrated butter in accordance with Article 5 and the addition of tracers, where appropriate, or the addition of tracers to the butter,
and
(ii) the incorporation of the butter or concentrated butter, to which tracers have or have not been added, into final products; or,
(b) for products as referred to in Article 1 (2), where Article 3 (a) applies, incorporation into final products.
3. The proof required for the purposes of release of the processing security referred to in paragraph 2 shall be produced for the competent agency designated by the Member State within 12 months of the expiry of the period laid down in Article 11.
Where the time limits laid down in Article 11 are exceeded by less than a total of 60 days, the processing security shall be forfeited at the rate of ECU 4 per tonne per day. At the end of this period, Article 23 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2220/85 (10) shall apply to the amount remaining.
4. Where the primary requirements referred to in paragraph 2 (a) are not complied with within the time limits laid down in Article 11 because the intervention butter is found to be unfit for consumption, any processing securities shall nevertheless be released, with the agreement of the Commission, once appropriate action has been taken under the supervision of the authorities of the Member State concerned.

Article 19
1. Tenders shall be rejected if the price offered is lower than the minimum price or if the amount of aid proposed exceeds the maximum amount of aid fixed, due regard being had to the intended use, the fat content of the butter in question and the incorporation procedure.
2. Without prejudice to paragraph 1, successful tenderers shall be those offering the highest price.
The competent intervention agency shall sell intervention butter on the basis of the date on which it entered storage, starting with the oldest butter among the total available quantity or, where applicable, the available quantity in the cold store(s) named by the operator.
3. Under the sale procedure, if the quantity available in the store in question is not exhausted, contracts for the remaining quantity shall be awarded to the other tenderers according to the prices offered, starting with the highest price. Where the remaining quantity is one tonne or less, that quantity shall be offered to the successful tenderers on the same terms as quantities already awarded to them.
Where acceptance of a tender would lead to a contract being awarded for more butter than is available at the cold store in question, a contract shall be awarded to the tenderer concerned only for the quantity available. However, notwithstanding Article 16 (2) (f), the intervention agency shall designate other stores from which the quantity specified in the tender is to be made up.
Where, in respect of a single cold store, acceptance of two or more tenders offering the same prices with the same intended uses for the butter, the same fat content and the same method of incorporation would lead to contracts being awarded in excess of the quantity available, awards shall be made by dividing the quantity available in proportion to the quantities tendered for. However, should such a division lead to the award of quantities of less than five tonnes, awards shall be made by drawing lots.
4. Rights and obligations arising in connection with the invitation to tender shall not be transferable.

CHAPTER IV

Sale by tendering procedure of butter from intervention

Article 20
1. All tenderers shall immediately be notified by the competent intervention agency of the result of their participation in an individual invitation to tender.
2. Before removing the butter and within the period specified in Article 21 (2), successful tenderers shall pay the intervention agency an amount corresponding to their tender for the quantity which they intend to remove from store and shall lodge a processing security as referred to in Article 18 (2).
3. Except in cases of force majeure, if the successful tenderer has not made the payment referred to in paragraph 2 within the specified period the tendering security referred to in Article 17 (1) shall be forfeited and the sale of the remaining quantities shall be cancelled.

Article 21
1. When the amount referred to in Article 20 (2) has been paid and a security as referred to in Article 18 (2) has been lodged, the intervention agency shall issue a removal warrant indicating:
(a) the quantity for which the conditions referred to above have been satisfied and the tender to which it relates, identified by a serial number;
(b) the cold store where it is stored;
(c) the final date for removal of the butter;
(d) the final date for incorporation into final products;
(e) the incorporation procedure chosen, having regard to Article 3, and
the intended use (formula A or formula B).
2. Successful tenderers shall remove the butter awarded to them within 45 days of the closing date for submission of tenders. Removal may take place in instalments.
If the payment referred to in Article 20 (2) has been made but the butter has not been removed within the period referred to above, the successful tenderer shall bear the cost and risk of storing the butter with effect from the day following that referred to in paragraph 1 (c).
3. The butter shall be handed over by the intervention agency in packages bearing a clear and legible indication of this Regulation, the intended use (formula A or formula B) and the incorporation procedure chosen having regard to the relevant provisions of Article 3.
The butter shall remain in its original packaging until the start of the incorporation procedure in accordance with Article 3.
4. For imperative and duly substantiated commercial reasons, a change in the intended use or incorporation method for the entire quantity of the tender as referred to in Article 16, prior to the addition of tracers where Article 3 (a) applies, shall be authorized by the intervention agency, under its supervision and in compliance with this Regulation.
However, where the minimum selling price or the maximum level of aid referred to in Article 18 (1), as the case may be, are identical for formula A and formula B, at the tenderer's request a change in the intended use between the two formulas for the entire quantity of the tender as referred to in Article 16 may be authorized by the competent authority, under its supervision and in compliance with this Regulation.

CHAPTER V

Performance of the tender as regards the granting of aid

Article 22
1. All tenderers shall immediately be notified by the competent intervention agency of the result of their participation in an individual invitation to tender.
2. Successful tenderers shall be notified of the following in particular:
(a) the amount of aid awarded for the quantity of butter, concentrated butter or cream concerned and the tender to which it relates, identified by a serial number;
(b) where applicable, the amount of the processing security;
(c) the final date for incorporation into final products;
(d) the incorporation procedure chosen, having regard to Article 3, and the intended use (formula A or formula B), without prejudice to the application of Article 21 (4).
3. Aid shall be paid to successful tenderers only on condition that proof has been provided, within 12 months of the final date laid down in Article 11:
(a) for butter:
(i) that it has satisfied the conditions laid down in Article 1 (2) (a),
and
(ii) that it has been incorporated into final products within the period laid down in Article 11 or, where Article 3 (a) applies, that the processing security referred to in Article 18 (2) has been lodged;
(b) for concentrated butter:
(i) that it has been manufactured in accordance with the specifications in Annex I within the period laid down in Article 11,
and
(ii) that it has been incorporated into final products within the period laid down in Article 11 or, where Article 3 (a) applies, that the processing security referred to in Article 18 (2) has been lodged;
(c) for cream:
(i) that it has satisfied the conditions laid down in Article 1 (2) (c),
and
(ii) that it has been incorporated into final products within the period laid down in Article 11 or, where Article 3 (a) applies, that the processing security referred to in Article 18 (2) has been lodged.
However, no processing security as referred to in Article 18 (2) need be lodged if the aid is claimed following completion of the checks referred to in Article 23 and if proof is supplied of incorporation into final products within the period laid down in Article 11.
4. The aid shall be paid within 60 days of presentation to the intervention agency of the proof referred to in paragraph 3, in proportion to the quantities for which such proof has been provided.
However, Member States may restrict payment of the aid to one application per month and per tendering procedure.
Where the period specified in Article 11 is exceeded by less than a total of 60 days, for products as referred to in Article 3 (b), the aid shall be reduced by ECU 4 per tonne per day. At the end of this period, the remaining amount of the aid shall be reduced by 15 %, and thereafter by 2 % for each extra day.
Where a subordinate obligation within the meaning of Article 20 of Regulation (EEC) No 2220/85 is not complied with and in the absence of any specific penalty provided for under this Regulation, the aid shall be reduced by 15 %.
In cases of force majeure or where an administrative inquiry concerning entitlement to the aid has been initiated, payment shall not be made until entitlement to the aid has been established.

CHAPTER VI

Control measures

Article 23
1. In order to ensure compliance with this Regulation, Member States shall adopt the control measures set out in paragraphs 2 to 8, the cost of which they shall bear.
2. During the manufacture of concentrated butter, whether or not tracers are added, or during the addition of tracers to cream or butter, or during repackaging as referred to in the second subparagraph of Article 7 (1), the competent agency shall carry out on-the-spot checks on the basis of the establishment's manufacturing programme as referred to in Article 10 (2) (d) in such a way that each tender award, as referred to in Article 16, is checked at least once. However, for quality control purposes, Member States may, after obtaining the Commission's consent, establish under their supervision a system of self-checking for certain approved establishments.
Such checks shall entail physical sampling and shall relate in particular to the conditions of manufacture and the quantity and composition of the product obtained depending on the butter or cream used.
The above checks shall be supplemented from time to time, on the basis of quantities processed, by detailed scrutiny, by sampling of records as referred to in Article 10 (2) (c) and, where appropriate, by sampling accounts as referred to in Article 12 (1) (b) and by verifying compliance with the terms and conditions governing approval of the establishment.
3. The arrangements to check the incorporation of concentrated butter or butter into intermediate products must include at least the following provisions:
(a) on-the-spot inspections of the establishments concerned shall be carried out unannounced on the basis of the manufacturing programme as referred to in Article 10 (2), (d), at a frequency which shall depend on the quantities used, but at least once a month. Inspections shall relate in particular to the conditions in which the intermediate products are manufactured and compliance with the requirements regarding butterfat content as declared in accordance with Article 8 (2), by means of:
(i) scrutiny of the records provided for in Article 10 (2) (c) to verify the composition as declared of the intermediate products manufactured,
(ii) sampling of intermediate products and examination of the butterfats used, to check the composition as indicated in the above records,
(iii) checks on the input of butterfat and the output of intermediate products manufactured;
(b) the inspections referred to in (a) shall be supplemented by checks to ascertain whether the conditions for the approval of the undertaking have been complied with and, where applicable, checks on the accounts referred to in Article 12 (1), and by detailed inspection of the said records carried out:
- by sampling, where Article 3 (a) applies,
- for each batch of intermediate products manufactured, where Article 3 (b) applies.
4. The arrangements to check the use of butter or concentrated butter or cream or of intermediate products in final products must include at least the following provisions:
(a) on-the-spot inspections of the establishments concerned shall be carried out to check compliance with the use to which the product is to be put as stated in the tender, on the basis of either the manufacturing recipes and of the records referred to in Article 10 (2) (c) or of the accounts referred to in Article 12 (1) (b):
(i) by sampling, at a frequency based on the quantities used, where Article 3 (a) applies, but at least once a month if five tonnes or more of butter or its equivalent are incorporated in the establishment per month. Such establishments shall forward their manufacturing programme in accordance with Article 10 (2) (d),
(ii) for each manufacturing batch of final products, where Article 3 (b) applies;
(b) where Article 3 (b) applies, the checks referred to in (a) shall be carried out at least once a month and shall be supplemented periodically by checks to ascertain compliance with:
(i) Article 1 (2) if necessary, with sampling of final products where appropriate,
(ii) the conditions for the approval of the establishment,
(iii) the undertaking given under Article 3 (b). Application of this provision may be suspended where an establishment has not respected its undertaking.
5. Where Article 3 (b) applies, 'manufacturing batch` shall mean a quantity of products manufactured from butter or concentrated butter or cream to which no tracers have been added, identified in relation to all or part of a tender as referred to in Article 16.
Where Article 3 (a) applies, the checks referred to in paragraph 3 (a) and in subpoint (i) of paragraph 4 (a) shall be carried out by identifying the quantities used in relation to tenders as referred to in Article 16.
6. Where Article 3 (a) applies, the checks referred to in paragraph 4 shall be deemed to have been carried out if the successful tenderers or, where applicable, the vendors submit a declaration by the final users or, where applicable, the final retailers, applicable to all sales, in which the latter:
(a) confirm their undertaking of incorporation into final products, as referred to in subpoint (iii) of Article 12 (1) (c) and set out in the sales contract;
(b) state that they are aware of the penalties they may incur if any checks which the public authorities may perform reveal that they have not fulfilled the obligations they have entered into.
Without prejudice to the penalties laid down now or in the future by the Member States concerned, a sum equal to the amount of the processing security referred to in Article 18 (2) shall be paid to the intervention agency in respect of the quantities concerned.
The Member States shall notify the Commission, before 1 March each year in respect of the previous year, or all cases where this point is applied.
The first subparagraph shall apply only if the final user or, where applicable, the final retailer, undertakes in writing to purchase over a 12-month period not more than 9 tonnes of butter-equivalent covering, where relevant, not more than 14 tonnes of cream or the same quantity of butter or concentrated butter in intermediate products. That subparagraph shall no longer apply to final users or final retailers who have not complied with this undertaking. However, if the competent authority deems it justified, it may approve a further undertaking by a final user or retailer who has so requested in writing, setting out the reasons for their non-compliance with the previous undertaking. Such approval may take effect only after a period of 12 months following the request. In the meantime, the checks referred to in paragraph 4 shall apply.
7. In addition to the checks referred to in paragraphs 2 to 6, the data forwarded to the competent authority under Article 10 (2) (e) and subpoint (vii) of Article 12 (1) (c) shall be checked periodically.
8. The inspections carried out pursuant to this Article must be the subject of an inspection report specifying the date of the inspection, its duration, and the operations carried out.

Article 24
1. Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3002/92 (11) shall apply mutatis mutandis to the products referred to in this Regulation, save as otherwise provided for herein. The products referred to in Article 1 (2) shall also be subject to the checks referred to in Article 2 of Regulation (EEC) No 3002/92 from the beginning of the operations referred to in Article 6 or, in the case of concentrated butter to which no tracers have been added, from the date of manufacture or, in the case of butter to which no tracers have been added, incorporated into intermediate products, as from the date of incorporation and until incorporation into the final products.
The special entries to be made in sections 104 and 106 of the T5 control copy shall be as set out in Annex VII.
2. Where tracers have been added to butter or cream, or butter or cream have been incorporated into final products or, where applicable, into intermediate products, in a Member State other than the country of manufacture, such butter or cream shall be accompanied by a certificate issued by the competent authority of the Member State stating that the terms of Article 1 (2) have been complied with.
