Brussels approves exceptions to fruit and vegetable legislation due to the war in Ukraine

On Wednesday, the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) published Delegated Regulation 2022/1623. This regulation approves exceptions to Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/891 for the year 2022 regarding the value of marketed production, national strategies, and the recovery of the Union's financial assistance for multiannual commitments in the fruit and vegetable sector due to the crisis caused by Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

One of the exceptions approved states that “if the value of a product is reduced by at least 35% and such reduction occurs for reasons beyond the responsibility and control of the producer organization, the value of the marketed production of that product shall be considered to represent 100% of its value in the previous reference period.”

Another exception is that "The Member States shall not be obliged to set in their national strategies the maximum percentages of the operational fund that can be devoted to any individual measure or type of action, so as to ensure a balance between the different measures."

The third exception is that the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF) will not be reimbursed for European Union financial support for multiannual commitments -such as environmental actions- if its long-term objectives and benefits cannot be achieved by 2022 because of the war in Ukraine.

The full text of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/1623 of July 14, 2022, can be found here.
