THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in milk and milk products(1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1670/2000(2), and in particular Article 26(3) and Article 40 thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Commission Regulation (EC) No 795/2001(3) introduces special measures with a view to regularising export operations that it has not been possible to complete on account of the lengthy procedures for issuing animal health certificates in certain Member States, connected with protective measures adopted under the relevant decisions and certain measures taken by some non-member countries that give rise to import restrictions.

(2) The animal health protective measures applied by the authorities of certain non-member countries with regard to Community exports are still in force and continue adversely to affect the export possibilities for certain products.

(3) The impact on Community exporters should be limited by extending the term of validity of the export licences for certain products and certain time limits with immediate effect. Requirements regarding the notification by the Member States of information concerning the licences in question should also be amended.

(4) The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Milk and Milk Products,
