Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Directive 83/129/EEC (1), as amended y Directive 85/444/EEC (2), and in particular Article 2 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas Directive 83/129/EEC provides that Member States shall take or maintain all necessary measures to ensure that the products listed in the Annex thereto are not commercially imported into their territories;

Whereas Directive 83/129/EEC expires on 1 October 1989;

Whereas the Commission submitted a report to the Council on 26 August 1983, followed by a supplementary report on 14 June 1985;

Whereas the Commission submitted a further report to the Council on 24 March 1988;

Whereas Directive 83/129/EEC should be amended so that it remains applicable sine die,
