Parliamentary questions
29 January 2014
Answer given by Mr Cioloş on behalf of the Commission

There are several possibilities for a producer group that has not implemented all the investments in their recognition plan to nevertheless fulfil the recognition criteria.

According to Article 25 of Regulation (EU) No 543/2011(1), a producer organisation, which is recognised for a product for which the provision of technical means is necessary, shall be considered to fulfil its obligation where it provides an adequate level of technical means itself, through its members, through subsidiaries, or by outsourcing.

In this context, if additional members who join the producer group can provide these technical means to the producer group, some of the investments foreseen in the original recognition plan might no longer be needed. The same is true if the producers decide that it is economically more interesting to outsource a certain activity instead of making the necessary investments. Given the fact that a recognition plan covers a maximum period of five years, it is also possible that during the implementation of the programme it becomes evident that the investment needs had been initially over-estimated.

According to Article 49(4) of that regulation, the former producer group must obtain recognition as a producer organisation within the deadline fixed by the Member State. This means that after the end of the implementation of the recognition plan, the recognition has to be requested by the former producer group and granted by the competent authority of the Member State within this deadline.
