DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE

No 159/2014

of 9 July 2014

amending certain Annexes and Protocols to the EEA Agreement [2015/94]

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)

Article 128 of the EEA Agreement stipulates that any European State becoming a member of the European Union shall apply to become a Party to the EEA Agreement, and that the terms and conditions for such participation shall be subject to an agreement between the Contracting Parties and the applicant State.

(2)

Following successful conclusion of the European Union enlargement negotiations, the Republic of Croatia (‘the New Contracting Party’) submitted an application to become party to the EEA Agreement.

(3)

The Agreement on the participation of the Republic of Croatia in the European Economic Area (1) (‘the EEA Enlargement Agreement’) was signed on 11 April 2014.

(4)

Pursuant to Article 1(2) of the EEA Enlargement Agreement, the provisions of the EEA Agreement, as amended by the Decisions of the EEA Joint Committee adopted before 30 June 2011, shall, as from the entry into force of the EEA Enlargement Agreement, be binding on the New Contracting Party under the same conditions as on the present Contracting Parties and under the terms and conditions laid down in the EEA Enlargement Agreement.

(5)

Since 30 June 2011, a number of EU acts have been incorporated into the EEA Agreement by decisions of the EEA Joint Committee.

(6)

In order to guarantee the homogeneity of the EEA Agreement and legal security for individuals and economic operators, it needs to be made clear that the EU acts referred to or contained in the abovementioned decisions shall be binding upon the New Contracting Party as of the entry into force of the EEA Enlargement Agreement.

(7)

Pursuant to Article 3(5) of the EEA Enlargement Agreement, where adaptations to EU acts incorporated into the EEA Agreement prior to the date of entry into force of the EEA Enlargement Agreement are required by reason of the New Contracting Party's participation, and where such adaptations have not been provided for in the EEA Enlargement Agreement, those adaptations will be addressed in accordance with the procedures laid down in the EEA Agreement.

(8)

Pursuant to Article 4(2) of the EEA Enlargement Agreement, any of the arrangements of relevance for the EEA Agreement referred to in or adopted on the basis of the Act concerning the conditions of accession of the Republic of Croatia and the adjustments to the Treaty on European Union, the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community (2) (‘Act of Accession of 9 December 2011’), which is not reflected in the EEA Enlargement Agreement, will be addressed in accordance with the procedures laid down in the EEA Agreement.

(9)

Pursuant to Protocol 44 to the EEA Agreement on safeguard mechanisms pursuant to enlargements of the European Economic Area, which is inserted into the EEA Agreement by Article 2(2) of the EEA Enlargement Agreement, the decision-making procedure provided for by the EEA Agreement shall be applicable to decisions taken by the European Commission in application of Article 38 of the Act of Accession of 9 December 2011.

(10)

The Annexes and Protocols to the EEA Agreement should therefore be amended accordingly.
