COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 1304/2007

of 7 November 2007

amending Council Directive 95/64/EC, Council Regulation (EC) No 1172/98, Regulations (EC) No 91/2003 and (EC) No 1365/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council with respect to the establishment of NST 2007 as the unique classification for transported goods in certain transport modes

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 95/64/EC of 8 December 1995 on statistical returns in respect of carriage of goods and passengers by sea (1), and in particular Article 12 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1172/98 of 25 May 1998 on statistical returns in respect of the carriage of goods by road (2), and in particular Article 3(4) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 91/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2002 on rail transport statistics (3), and in particular Article 4(5) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1365/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 September 2006 on statistics of goods transport by inland waterways (4), and in particular Article 9 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

According to Directive 95/64/EC, Regulation (EC) No 1172/98 and Regulation (EC) No 91/2003, the standard goods classification for transport statistics (NST/R) is to be used to classify transported goods, respectively in maritime transport statistics, road freight transport statistics and rail transport statistics.

(2)

According to Regulation (EC) No 1365/2006, either NST/R or NST 2000 rev. 2 are to be used in the classification of transported goods in inland waterways statistics.

(3)

In June 2007, a new revision of NST 2000 (NST 2007) was adopted by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) for reasons of consistency with the revised NACE (Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community).

(4)

In order to provide a comparable statistical coverage of transported goods in all concerned modes of transport, it is necessary to adopt NST 2007 as the unique classification of transported goods in all concerned modes of transport; this should apply both to Member States when collecting national data and to the Commission when disseminating statistical information on transported goods.

(5)

Directive 95/64/EC, Regulation (EC) No 1172/98, Regulation (EC) No 91/2003, and Regulation (EC) No 1365/2006 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Statistical Programme Committee set up by Council Decision 89/382/EEC, Euratom (5),
