DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE No 117/2022

of 29 April 2022

amending Annex II (Technical regulations, standards, testing and certification) to the EEA Agreement [2022/1561]

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)

Commission Regulation (EU) 2021/2142 of 3 December 2021 amending Regulation (EC) No 1881/2006 as regards maximum levels of opium alkaloids in certain foodstuffs (1) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(3)

This Decision concerns legislation regarding foodstuffs. Legislation regarding foodstuffs 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 introduction to Chapter XII of Annex II to the EEA Agreement.
