DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE

No 84/2017

of 5 May 2017

amending Annex II (Technical regulations, standards, testing and certification) to the EEA Agreement [2019/196]

THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE,

Having regard to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (‘the EEA Agreement’), and in particular Article 98 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/662 of 1 April 2016 concerning a coordinated multiannual control programme of the Union for 2017, 2018 and 2019 to ensure compliance with maximum residue levels of pesticides and to assess the consumer exposure to pesticide residues in and on food of plant and animal origin (1) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/662 repeals Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/595 (2), which is incorporated into the EEA Agreement and which is consequently to be repealed under the EEA Agreement

(3)

This Decision concerns legislation regarding foodstuffs. Legislation regarding foodstuffs shall not apply to Liechtenstein as long as the application of the Agreement between the European Community and the Swiss Confederation on trade in agricultural products is extended to Liechtenstein, as specified in the introduction to Chapter XII of Annex II to the EEA Agreement.
