Extensions of differentiation of export refund on the basis of destination to certain milk and sugar products exported in the form of Non Annex I (NA I) goods.
Please see the attached letter from the EU Commission concerning the introduction of differentiated refunds for NA1 Goods. You will note the Commission intention to introduce differentiated refunds with effect from 01.02.07. The proposal will be submitted for voting at the Milk and Sugar Management Committee's during January. The next and possibly the last weekly application in January will be 5th January at 12 noon and the 3rd tranche deadline is also the same Friday 5th January at 12 noon. There will possibly be a weekly application in the week beginning the 22nd of January although this has not been confirmed.
The introduction of differentiated refunds will be of particular concern to traders exporting NA1 Goods containing Milk Products to the USA.
