Abstract

These Regulations amend the principal Regulations of 1994 by updating a reference to Community legislation and by adjusting the annual rate payable on land set aside and which is covered by undertakings of farmers on land management in nitrate sensitive areas. The 1994 Regulations were made pursuant to Council Regulation (EC) 2078/92 and implemented in part a zonal programme approved thereunder. This Regulation has been amended twice, namely by Commission Regulation 746/96 and Commission Regulation 435/97. The set-aside option was introduced in 1995 pursuant to Council Regulation (EC) 1460/95. These Regulations implement a change to the NSA set-aside option payment consequent upon a reduction in the set-aside payment rate calculated in accordance with Regulation 1765/92. (2 Regulations)
