Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which come into force on 1st July 2001, replace the provisions of the Suckler Cow Premium Regulations 1993 (S.I. 1993/1441) and the Suckler Cow Premium (Amendment) Regulations 1994 to 1997 (S.I. 1994/1528, 1995/15, 1995/1446, 1996/1488, and 1997/249).

The Regulations lay down implementing measures for the suckler cow premium scheme provided for in Article 6 of Council Regulation (EC) No. 1254/1999 on the common organisation of the market in beef and veal. They provide for the administration of the scheme in relation to applicants and their holdings where those holdings are situated wholly in Scotland, and also holdings situated partly in Scotland and partly elsewhere in the United Kingdom, where the Scottish Ministers are responsible for processing the farmer’s claim for suckler cow premium (regulations 3 to 6). They also lay down enforcement provisions applicable where the Scottish Ministers have such responsibility (regulations 8 to 15).

The rules relating to administration provide for the submission of applications for suckler cow premium (regulation 4) and the retention of records by applicants (regulation 7), impose sanctions for overgrazing and the use of unsuitable supplementary feeding methods (which are included as a condition of the scheme by virtue of Article 3 of Council Regulation (EC) No. 1259/1999 establishing common rules for direct support schemes under the common agricultural policy) (regulations 5 and 6) and provide for withholding or recovery of suckler cow premium where there is a breach of the rules of the scheme (regulations 10 and 11).

The enforcement provisions confer powers of entry, inspection and collection of evidence on authorised persons (regulations 8 and 9). These include the powers required under Article 6 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No. 3887/92 laying down detailed rules for applying the integrated administration and control system for certain Community aid schemes. Regulations 12 to 15 deal with offences and penalties.
