Court (Fourth Chamber)
Decision date:

Key facts of the case:

Reference for a preliminary ruling: Hoge Raad der Nederlanden - Netherlands.
Milk and milk products - Additional levy on milk - Special reference quantity - Second subparagraph of Article 3(1) of Regulation No 857/84.

Outcome of the case:

On those grounds, the Court (Fourth Chamber) hereby rules:

The second subparagraph of Article 3(1) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 857/84 of 31 March 1984 adopting general rules for the application of the levy referred to in Article 5c of Regulation (EEC) No 804/68 in the milk and milk products sector must be interpreted as not precluding a national rule such as that at issue in the main proceedings which restricts the category of milk producers who may obtain a special reference quantity to those who incurred investment obligations after 1 September 1981 but before 1 March 1984.
