COMMISSION DECISION

of 8 August 2006

amending Decision 2002/300/EC as regards the areas excluded from the list of approved zones with regard to Bonamia ostreae and/or Marteilia refringens

(notified under document number C(2006) 3518)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2006/559/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 91/67/EEC of 28 January 1991 concerning the animal health conditions governing the placing on the market of aquaculture animals and products (1), and in particular Article 5(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Decision 2002/300/EC of 18 April 2002 establishing the list of approved zones with regard to Bonamia ostreae and/or Marteilia refringens  (2) lays down the areas in the Community considered to be free of the mollusc diseases Bonamia ostreae and/or Marteilia refringens.

(2)

The United Kingdom informed the Commission by letter of May 2006 that Bonamia ostreae has been detected in the river Cleddau in Wales. The United Kingdom has established a control zone and a surveillance zone around the affected area. That area was previously considered to be free of Bonamia ostreae but can therefore no longer be regarded as free of that disease.

(3)

Decision 2002/300/EC should be amended accordingly.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The Annex to Decision 2002/300/EC is replaced by the text in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 8 August 2006.
