Commission Directive 2003/47/EC

of 4 June 2003

amending Annexes II, IV and V to Council Directive 2000/29/EC on protective measures against the introduction into the Community of organisms harmful to plants or plant products and against their spread within the Community

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 2000/29/EC of 8 May 2000 on protective measures against the introduction into the Community of organisms harmful to plants or plant products and against their spread within the Community(1), as last amended by Commission Directive 2003/22/EC(2), and in particular point (c) of the second paragraph of Article 14 thereof,

Having regard to the agreement of the Member State concerned,

Whereas:

(1) From information supplied by Portugal based on updated surveys, it appears that the protected zone for Gonipterus scutellatus Gyll. should be modified and restricted to the Azores only.

(2) Due to a clerical error in the preparation of Commission Directive 2002/36/EC(3) amending certain annexes to Directive 2000/29/EC, new provisions as regards soil and growing medium, attached to or associated with plants, originating in Cyprus and Malta were unduly adopted.

(3) Due to a clerical error in the preparation of Directive 2002/36/EC, the text in point 2 under heading I of Part B of Annex V to Directive 2000/29/EC was replaced without mentioning the relevant plant products concerned.

(4) The relevant Annexes to Directive 2000/29/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5) The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plant Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:
