of 8 April 2010

amending Regulation (EC) No 820/2008 laying down measures for the implementation of the common basic standards on aviation security

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 2320/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2002 establishing common rules in the field of civil aviation security (1), and in particular Article 4(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The Commission is required, by virtue of Regulation (EC) No 2320/2002, when necessary, to adopt measures for the implementation of common basic standards for aviation security throughout the Community. Such detailed measures are laid down by Commission Regulation (EC) No 820/2008 (2).

(2)

The measures provided for by Regulation (EC) No 820/2008 on restricting liquids carried by passengers arriving on flights from third countries and transferring at Community airports are subject to review in the light of technical developments, operational implications at airports and the impact on passengers.

(3)

Such a review has shown that the restrictions on liquids carried by passengers arriving on flights from third countries and transferring at Community airports create certain operational difficulties at these airports and cause inconvenience to the passengers concerned.

(4)

In particular, the Commission has verified certain security standards at airports in specific third countries and found them satisfactory, and that those countries have a good record of cooperation with the Community and its Member States. On that basis the Commission has decided to take steps to alleviate the problems identified above, in the case of passengers carrying liquids obtained at named airports in those countries.

(5)

Regulation (EC) No 820/2008 should be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Civil Aviation Security,
