In response to the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the paralysis of the productive sectors, as a result of the declaration of the state of alarm that has forced the confinement of the population and which has resulted in a decrease in the demand for certain products for beef, sheep and goat meat, the Commission has published Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/595 of 30 April 2020 granting aid for the private storage of beef, sheep and goat and fixing the amount of aid in advance. To guarantee a harmonized application, it is necessary to set minimum criteria so that the actions of the paying agencies, in the exercise of their powers, are carried out in a coordinated manner. These criteria have been agreed between the FEGA (Spanish Agrarian Guarantee Fund) and the different autonomous communities.
This new order allows those vehicles destined for tasks such as the production, commercialization, transformation and distribution of agricultural, livestock and fishing products and their supplies to move; to the production, distribution, rental and repair of equipment and machinery for agriculture, fishing, livestock, and its associated industry; to the transport and treatment of agricultural, livestock and fishing residues and by-products, and the food industry.
Within the recently published Order INT / 284/2020 some of the regulations established by Order INT / 262/2020 on road travel are modified under the current state of alarm.
