Adjustment of purchaser quota

7.—(1) Where any wholesale quota is increased or reduced in accordance with the Community legislation or these Regulations, the purchaser quota of any purchaser to whom that quota is applicable shall be correspondingly increased or reduced.

(2) On any transaction to which the second sub-paragraph of Article 2(2) of the Council Regulation (which concerns replacement of purchasers and changes of purchasers by producers) applies, any purchaser whose purchaser quota has been increased by virtue of such a transaction (other than as a result of a temporary transfer of quota under regulation 13) shall submit to the Scottish Ministers–

(a)on or before 14th May in the quota year immediately following the quota year in which that transaction took place, a statement setting out the particulars of the transaction; and

(b)where appropriate, a declaration made and signed by the producer that the purchaser whose purchaser quota is to decrease has been notified of the particulars set out in the statement referred to in sub-paragraph (a) above.

(3) The statement referred to in paragraph (2)(a) and the declaration referred to in paragraph (2)(b) shall be made in such form as may reasonably be required by the Scottish Ministers.

(4) Subject to paragraph (5), where during a quota year a producer changes from being registered with one purchaser to being registered with any other purchaser–

(a)for the purposes of calculating liability for levy pursuant to regulation 18 in that quota year, any purchaser with whom the producer is newly registered shall request of the Scottish Ministers (in such form as they may require) that the purchaser quota of the purchaser be increased by an amount equivalent to such part of the registered wholesale quota of that producer as that producer shall determine;

(b)the amount of the increase of the purchaser quota determined in accordance with sub-paragraph (a) shall not include the amount of quota necessary to cover the deliveries made by the producer before the date of the change of purchaser, adjusted if necessary in accordance with the second sub-paragraph of Article 4(1) of the Commission Regulation, and such amount of quota shall remain available to the original purchaser;

(c)at the beginning of the quota year immediately following the quota year referred to in sub-paragraph (a), the purchaser with whom the producer is newly registered shall have the quota of that purchaser increased by such part of the remaining registered wholesale quota of the producer as that producer shall determine; and

(d)corresponding reductions of the purchaser quota of the original purchaser shall be made, and, where there are adjustments of quota of a producer registered with more than one purchaser, such reductions of purchaser quota shall be made in respect of such of those other purchasers in such proportions as may appear to the Scottish Ministers to be appropriate in all the circumstances.

(5) Where the amount of quota necessary to cover the deliveries made to an original purchaser and referred to in paragraph (4)(b) is affected by an adjustment of the quantity delivered by the producer (being an adjustment in accordance with the second sub-paragraph of Article 4(1) of the Commission Regulation)–

(a)in the event that an increase in such quota of the original purchaser is necessary to cover the deliveries made to the original purchaser by the producer, the original purchaser may apply to the Scottish Ministers (in such form as they may reasonably require) to assess and make such increase, and make a corresponding reduction in the purchaser quota of the purchaser with whom the producer is newly registered; and

(b)in the event that a reduction is capable of being made to the quota of an original purchaser who has more than is necessary to cover the deliveries made to the original purchaser by the producer, any purchaser with whom the producer is newly registered and who requires an increase in purchaser quota to cover the deliveries made by the producer to the purchaser with whom the producer is newly registered may apply to the Scottish Ministers (in such form as they may reasonably require) to assess and make the appropriate reduction, and make a corresponding increase in the purchaser quota of that purchaser with whom the producer is newly registered,

and in each case upon such application the Scottish Ministers shall make the assessment requested and the appropriate adjustment.

(6) An application under paragraph (5)(a) or (b) shall be made no later than 15th June in the quota year immediately following the quota year during which the producer changed from being registered with the original purchaser to being registered with the other purchaser in question.
