COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 92/81/EEC of 19 October 1992 on the harmonization of the structures of excise duties on mineral oils

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing he European Economic Community, and in particular Article 99 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (3),

Whereas Directive 92/12/EEC (4) lays down provisions on the general arrangements for products subject to excise duty;

Whereas Directive 92/82/EEC (5) lays down provision in respect of the minimum rates of excise duty applicable to certain mineral oils;

Whereas it is important to the proper functioning of the internal market to determine common definitions for all mineral oil products which shall be subject to the general excise monitoring system;

Whereas it is useful to base such definitions on those in the combined nomenclature in force at the date of the adoption of this Directive;

Whereas it is necessary to lay down certain obligatory exemptions at Community level;

Whereas, however, it is appropriate to permit Member States to apply on an optional basis certain other exemptions or reduced rates within their own territory where this does not give rise to distortions of competition;

Whereas it is necessary to provide for a procedure to authorize the introduction of further exemptions or rate reductions;

Whereas it is necessary to provide for a review procedure for all the exemptions or reduced rates provided for in this Directive in order to monitor their continued compatibility with the proper functioning of the internal market,
