COMMISSION DECISION of 6 November 1997 amending Decision 97/296/EC drawing up the list of third countries from which the import of fishery products is authorized for human consumption (Text with EEA relevance) (97/758/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Decision 95/408/EC of 22 June 1995 on the conditions for drawing up, for an interim period, provisional lists of third country establishments from which Member States are authorized to import certain products of animal origin, fishery products or live bivalve molluscs (1), as last amended by Decision 97/34/EC (2), and in particular Article 2 (2) thereof,

Whereas Commission Decision 97/296/EC (3), as last amended by Decision 97/564/EC (4), lists the third countries from which importation of fishery products is authorized for human consumption;

Whereas Commission Decision 97/757/EC (5) sets specific import terms for fishery and aquaculture products originating in Madagascar; whereas Madagascar should therefore be added to the list of third countries from which importation of fishery products is authorized;

Whereas Article 3 (4) (b) of Council Directive 91/493/EEC of 22 July 1991 laying down the health conditions for the production and the placing on the market of fishery products (6) requires that, before processing, bivalve molluscs satisfy the requirements of Directive 91/492/EEC; whereas in consequence the list of third countries meeting the terms of Directive 91/492/EEC also applies for imports of processed bivalve molluscs, echinoderms, tunicates and marine gastropods;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Veterinary Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
