of 7 February 2020

amending Annex I (Veterinary and phytosanitary matters) and Annex II (Technical regulations, standards, testing and certification) to the EEA Agreement [2023/283]

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) 2019/1981 of 28 November 2019 amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/626 as regards lists of third countries and regions thereof authorised for entry into the European Union of snails, gelatine and collagen, and insects intended for human consumption (1) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(2)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/2007 of 18 November 2019 laying down rules for the application of Regulation (EU) 2017/625 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the lists of animals, products of animal origin, germinal products, animal by-products and derived products and hay and straw subject to official controls at border control posts and amending Decision 2007/275/EC (2) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(3)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/2128 of 12 November 2019 establishing the model official certificate and rules for issuing official certificates for goods which are delivered to vessels leaving the Union and intended for ship supply or consumption by the crew and passengers, or to NATO or a United States’ military base (3) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(4)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/2129 of 25 November 2019 establishing rules for the uniform application of frequency rates for identity checks and physical checks on certain consignments of animals and goods entering the Union (4) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(5)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/2130 of 25 November 2019 establishing detailed rules on the operations to be carried out during and after documentary checks, identity checks and physical checks on animals and goods subject to official controls at border control posts (5) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(7)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/2129 repeals Commission Decision 94/360/EC (7), which is incorporated into the EEA Agreement and which is consequently to be repealed under the EEA Agreement.

(8)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/2130 repeals Commission Regulations (EU) No 136/2004 (8) and (EU) No 282/2004 (9), which are incorporated into the EEA Agreement and which are consequently to be repealed under the EEA Agreement.

(9)

This Decision concerns legislation containing provisions regarding plant health. Legislation regarding plant health falls outside the scope of the EEA Agreement and provisions regarding plant health shall therefore not apply to the EFTA States.

(10)

This Decision concerns legislation containing provisions regarding live animals, other than fish and aquaculture animals. Provisions regarding live animals, other than fish and aquaculture animals, shall not apply to Iceland, as specified in paragraph 2 of the Introductory Part of Chapter I of Annex I to the EEA Agreement.

(11)

This Decision concerns legislation regarding veterinary matters, feedingstuffs and foodstuffs. Legislation regarding veterinary matters, feedingstuffs and 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 sectoral adaptations to Annex I and the introduction to Chapter XII of Annex II to the EEA Agreement. This Decision is therefore not to apply to Liechtenstein.
