Official Journal L 080 , 25/03/1999 P. 0020 - 0021


COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 1999/20/EC of 22 March 1999 amending Directives 70/524/EEC concerning additives in feedingstuffs, 82/471/EEC concerning certain products used in animal nutrition, 95/53/EC fixing the principles governing the organisation of official inspections in the field of animal nutrition and 95/69/EC laying down the conditions and arrangements for approving and registering certain establishments and intermediaries operating in the animal feed sector

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 43 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (3),

Whereas Articles 13 to 16 of Directive 70/524/EEC (4), as amended by Directive 96/51/EC (5), lay down certain provisions on the distribution and incorporation in feedingstuffs of additives and premixtures and the labelling of additives, premixtures and compound feedingstuffs;

Whereas Directive 82/471/EEC (6) makes provision in Article 3 and in the Annex for certain measures for the distribution and labelling of those products;

Whereas the deadline of 1 April 1998 laid down for implementation by the Member States of the amendments to Directives 70/524/EEC and 82/471/EEC, introduced respectively by Directive 96/51/EC and Directive 95/69/EC (7) is incompatible with the dates laid down by Directive 95/69/EC for the completion of approval procedures (1 April 2001) and registration procedures (1 September 1998) for certain establishments and intermediaries operating in the animal feed sector; whereas the provisions in question apply without prejudice to the deadlines laid down in Directive 95/69/EC; whereas Directives 70/524/EEC and 82/471/EEC must nevertheless be amended for reasons of legal consistency;

Whereas Council Directive 95/53/EC of 25 October 1995 fixing the principles governing the organisation of official inspections in the field of animal nutrition (8) must cover all products and substances used in animal feedingstuffs in the Community;

Whereas, in order to achieve that objective, Directive 96/25/EC should be included in the list of legislation to which Directive 95/53/EC applies; whereas the reference to Council Directive 77/101/EEC of 23 November 1976 on the marketing of straight feedingstuffs (9) should be deleted from that list, as it has since been repealed by Directive 96/25/EC;

Whereas Directive 95/69/EC lays down that each year Member States must send the other Member States a list of approved establishments; whereas the procedures for the approval of establishments must be completed by 1 April 2001; whereas, in the mean time, it is therefore necessary, with a view to official inspections in the field of animal nutrition, in particular on trade within the Community, that the communication should also include establishments which, although not yet approved, can, in accordance with the conditions laid down by the Directive, continue to carry out their activities;

Whereas Directives 70/524/EC, 82/471/EEC, 95/53/EC and 95/69/EC should therefore be amended accordingly,
