COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2019/64

of 14 January 2019

amending Decision 2011/163/EU on the approval of plans submitted by third countries in accordance with Article 29 of Council Directive 96/23/EC

(notified under document C(2019) 25)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Directive 96/23/EC of 29 April 1996 on measures to monitor certain substances and residues thereof in live animals and animal products and repealing Directives 85/358/EEC and 86/469/EEC and Decisions 89/187/EEC and 91/664/EEC (1), and in particular the fourth subparagraph of Article 29(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 29 of Directive 96/23/EC requires that third countries from which Member States are authorised to import animals and animal products covered by that Directive submit residue monitoring plans providing required guarantees (‘the plans’). The plans should cover at least the groups of residues and substances listed in Annex I to that Directive.

(2)

Commission Decision 2011/163/EU (2) approves the plans submitted by certain third countries concerning specified animal and animal products listed in the Annex to that Decision (‘the list’).

(3)

In the light of the recent plans submitted by certain third countries and additional information obtained by the Commission, it is necessary to update the list.

(4)

Japan has submitted plans for porcine, poultry, milk and eggs to the Commission. These plans provide sufficient guarantees and should be approved. Entries for Japan regarding porcine, poultry, milk and eggs should therefore be included in the list. Decision 2011/163/EU should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

Albania has submitted plan for aquaculture finfish and not for all aquaculture products. In the light of the information provided by Albania, an asterisk in the relevant column should be added for limiting the approval to aquaculture finfish only.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The Annex to Decision 2011/163/EU is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 14 January 2019.
