DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE No 224/2018

of 5 December 2018

amending Annex I (Veterinary and phytosanitary matters) to the EEA Agreement [2021/1491]

THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE,

Having regard to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (“the EEA Agreement”), and in particular Article 98 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive (EU) 2018/597 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 April 2018 amending Council Directive 92/66/EEC introducing Community measures for the control of Newcastle disease (1) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(2)

This Decision concerns legislation regarding live animals other than fish and aquaculture animals. Legislation concerning these matters shall not apply to Iceland, as specified in paragraph 2 of the Introductory Part of Chapter I of Annex I to the EEA Agreement. This Decision is therefore not to apply to Iceland.

(3)

This Decision concerns legislation regarding veterinary matters. Legislation regarding veterinary matters shall not apply to Liechtenstein as long as the application of the Agreement between the European Community and the Swiss Confederation on trade in agricultural products is extended to Liechtenstein, as specified in the sectoral adaptations to Annex I to the EEA Agreement. This Decision is therefore not to apply to Liechtenstein.

(4)

Annex I to the EEA Agreement should therefore be amended accordingly,
