Subpart C-Dairy Export Incentive Program Criteria
§ 1494.1100 General statement.
This subpart sets forth the criteria to be considered in evaluating and approving proposals for initiatives to facilitate export sales under the Commodity Credit Corporation's (CCC) Dairy Export Incentive Program (DEIP). These criteria are interrelated and will be considered together in order to select eligible commodities and eligible countries for DEIP initiatives which will best meet the program's objectives. The objectives of the program are to increase commodity exports and to encourage other countries exporting agricultural commodities to undertake serious negotiations on agricultural trade problems. Under the DEIP, bonuses are made available by CCC to enable exporters to meet prevailing world prices for targeted dairy products in targeted destinations. In the operation of the DEIP, CCC will make reasonable efforts to avoid the displacement of commercial export sales of U.S. dairy products and to ensure that sales facilitated by the DEIP are in addition to, and not in place of, any export sales of dairy products that the exporter would have otherwise made in the absence of the program.
§ 1494.1101 Criteria.
The criteria considered in evaluating and approving proposals of the DEIP are those set forth in § 1494.20 of this part.[FoodAid/FFP/images/footer.html]
