These Regulations further amend the Sheep Annual Premium Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992 (“the 1992 Regulations”) to provide for a longer period in which to apply for sheep annual premium in respect of any marketing year as defined by Article 3(3) of Council Regulation (EEC) No. 2467/98 (O.J. No. L312, 10.11.98, p. 1). A producer shall deliver his application on or after 8th December in the preceding calendar year and not later than 19th January in the marketing year concerned. Previously the producer was requested to deliver his application in the period from 8th December 1998 to 8th January 1999.

The 1992 Regulations continue to implement, as respects Northern Ireland, the Council Regulations set out in the Explanatory Note to those Regulations.
