COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2016/1141

of 13 July 2016

adopting a list of invasive alien species of Union concern pursuant to Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 October 2014 on the prevention and management of the introduction and spread of invasive alien species (1), and in particular of Article 4(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014 provides that a list of invasive alien species of Union concern (‘the Union list’) is to be adopted on the basis of the criteria laid down in Article 4(3) thereof and meeting the conditions laid down in Article 4(6), which stipulates that the implementation costs, the cost of inaction, the cost-effectiveness and the socioeconomic aspects must be given due consideration.

(2)

The Commission has concluded on the basis of the available scientific evidence and the risk assessments carried out pursuant to Article 5(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014 that all criteria set out in Article 4(3) of that Regulation are met for the following invasive alien species: Baccharis halimifolia L, Cabomba caroliniana Gray, Callosciurus erythraeus Pallas, 1779, Corvus splendens Viellot, 1817, Eichhornia crassipes (Martius) Solms, Eriocheir sinensis H. Milne Edwards, 1854, Heracleum persicum Fischer, Heracleum sosnowskyi Mandenova, Herpestes javanicus É. Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 1818, Hydrocotyle ranunculoides L. f., Lagarosiphon major (Ridley) Moss, Lithobates (Rana) catesbeianus Shaw, 1802, Ludwigia grandiflora (Michx.) Greuter & Burdet, Ludwigia peploides (Kunth) P.H. Raven, Lysichiton americanus Hultén and St. John, Muntiacus reevesi Ogilby, 1839, Myocastor coypus Molina, 1782, Myriophyllum aquaticum (Vell.) Verdc., Nasua nasua Linnaeus, 1766, Orconectes limosus Rafinesque, 1817, Orconectes virilis Hagen, 1870, Oxyura jamaicensis Gmelin, 1789, Pacifastacus leniusculus Dana, 1852, Parthenium hysterophorus L., Perccottus glenii Dybowski, 1877, Persicaria perfoliata (L.) H. Gross (Polygonum perfoliatum L.), Procambarus clarkii Girard, 1852, Procambarus fallax (Hagen, 1870) f. virginalis, Procyon lotor Linnaeus, 1758, Pseudorasbora parva Temminck & Schlegel, 1846, Pueraria montana (Lour.) Merr. var. lobata (Willd.) (Pueraria lobata (Willd.) Ohwi), Sciurus carolinensis Gmelin, 1788, Sciurus niger Linnaeus, 1758, Tamias sibiricus Laxmann, 1769, Threskiornis aethiopicus Latham, 1790, Trachemys scripta Schoepff, 1792, Vespa velutina nigrithorax de Buysson, 1905.

(3)

The Commission has also concluded that those invasive alien species meet all of the conditions set out in Article 4(6) of Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014. In particular, some of those species are already established in the territory of the Union or even widely spread in certain Member States and there may be cases where it is not possible to eradicate such species in a cost-effective manner. However, it is appropriate to include those species in the Union list, as there are other cost-effective measures that can be implemented: to prevent new introductions or further spread in the territory of the Union; to promote early detection and rapid eradication of species where they are not yet present or not yet widely spread; and to manage them, as appropriate to the specific circumstances of the Member States concerned, including by fishing, hunting or trapping, or any other type of harvesting for consumption or export, provided that these activities are carried out within a national management programme.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Invasive Alien Species,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The list set out in the Annex to this Regulation shall constitute the initial list of invasive alien species of Union concern pursuant to Article 4(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 13 July 2016.

For the Commission

The President

Jean-Claude JUNCKER

Notes to the table:

Column (i): Species

This column indicates the scientific name of the species. Synonyms are included in parenthesis.

Column (ii): CN codes for live specimens.

This column indicates the Combined Nomenclature (CN) codes for the live specimens. The goods classified under the CN codes in this column shall be subject to official controls under Article 15 of Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014.

The CN, established by Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87, is based on the international Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) drawn up by the Customs Cooperation Council, now the World Customs Organization (WCO), adopted by the International Convention, concluded in Brussels on 14 June 1983 and approved on behalf of the European Economic Community by Council Decision 87/369/EEC (1) (‘the HS Convention’). The CN reproduces the headings and subheadings of the HS to six digits, with only the seventh and eighth figures creating further subheadings which are specific to it.

Where only certain specified products under any four, six or eight digit code are required to be submitted to checks and no specific subdivision under this code exists in the CN, the code is marked ex (for example, ex 0106 49 00, as CN code 0106 49 00 comprises all other insects and not only the insect species that figure in the table).

Column (iii): CN code for parts that can reproduce

This column indicates, where relevant, the Combined Nomenclature (CN) codes for the parts of the species that can reproduce. See also the note for column (ii). The goods classified under the CN codes in this column shall be subject to official controls under Article 15 of Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014.

Column (iv): Categories of associated goods

This column indicates, where relevant, the CN codes of goods with which the invasive alien species are generally associated. The goods classified under the CN codes in this column are not subject to official controls under Article 15 of Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014. See also the note for column (ii). In particular, the numbers mentioned in column (iv) refer to the CN codes below:

(1)

0301 11 00: Ornamental freshwater fish

(2)

0301 93 00: Carp (Cyprinus carpio, Carassius carassius, Ctenopharyngodon idellus, Hypophthalmichthys spp., Cirrhinus spp., Mylopharyngodon piceus)
