Private Storage Aid Schemes
Following the introduction of Commission Regulation (EC) No. 826/2008 the rules for Private Storage Aid were harmonised. Private Storage Aid may be granted for the following products:
- Butter (Unsalted or Salted)
- White Sugar
- Olive Oil
- Sheepmeat or Goatmeat
Based on the market situation the Commission will decide whether or not it is appropriate to open a Private Storage Aid scheme. Schemes can be opened using either fixed aid in advance or a tendering procedure.
Once a decision has been made by the Commission a regulation will be published announcing the opening of the scheme, this will also detail rates of aid and application procedures.
