THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 1999/36/EC of 29 April 1999 on transportable pressure equipment(1), and in particular Article 17(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) There are no detailed technical specifications and adequate references to the relevant European standards have not been added to the Annexes to Council Directive 94/55/EC of 21 November 1994 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States with regard to the transport of dangerous goods by road(2), as last amended by Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council 2000/61/EC(3), and to Council Directive 96/49/EC of 23 July 1996 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States with regard to the transport of dangerous goods by rail(4), as last amended by Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council 2000/62/EC(5), for the pressure drums, cylinder racks and tanks referred to in Article 2 of Directive 1999/36/EC. Consequently, the date of implementation of the directive on this transportable pressure equipment should be deferred.

Consequently, the date of expiry of that period should also be referred.

(3) The measures provided for in this Decision are in line with the opinion of the Committee referred to in Article 15 of Directive 1999/36/EC,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
