Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations further amend, with effect from 15th January 1999, the Arable Area Payments Regulations 1996 (S.I. 1996/3142) (“the principal Regulations”), as amended by the Arable Area Payments (Amendment) Regulations 1997 (S.I. 1997/2969) and the Arable Area Payments (Amendment) Regulations 1998 (S.I. 1998/3169). The principal Regulations, as amended, implement Council Regulation 1765/92 (OJ No. L181, 1.7.92, p. 12), which establishes a support system for producers of certain arable crops, and Commission Regulations 334/93 (OJ No. L38, 16.2.93, p. 12), 762/94 (OJ No. L90, 7.4.94, p. 8), 658/96 (OJ No. L91, 12.4.96, p. 46) and 1586/97 (OJ No. L215, 7.8.97, p. 3). The principal Regulations extend to Great Britain.
The effect of the amendment made by these Regulations is that references in the principal Regulations to a Community instrument are to that instrument as amended at the date that the Arable Area Payments (Amendment) Regulations 1998 were made.
No regulatory impact assessment has been prepared in respect of these Regulations.
