(notified under document number C(2001) 4868)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2002/61/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 91/493/EEC of 22 July 1991 laying down the health conditions for the production and the placing on the market of fishery products(1), as last amended by Directive 97/79/EC(2), and in particular Article 11(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Commission Decision 2001/634/EC of 16 August 2001 laying down special conditions governing imports of fishery products originating or proceeding from Guinea(3) states that the "Direction nationale des pêches maritimes (DNPM) of the Ministère de la pêche et de l'aquaculture" is to be the competent authority in Guinea for verifying and certifying compliance of fishery and aquaculture products with the requirements of Directive 91/493/EEC.

(2) Following a restructuring of the Guinean administration, the competent authority for issuing health certificates for fishery products has changed to the "Service Industries et assurance qualité des produits de la pêche et de l'aquaculture (SIAQPPA) du Ministère de la pêche et de l'aquaculture". This new authority is capable of effectively verifying the application of the laws in force.

(3) Also, the processing prohibition provided for under Article 2, point 1, of that Decision should be amended to authorise operations avoiding the contamination of fishery products, i.e. heading and gutting.

(4) Furthermore the modification of the list of establishments, by the procedure laid down by Article 5 of the Council Decision 95/408/EC of 22 July 1995 on the conditions for drawing up, for an interim period, provisional lists of third country establishments from which Member States are authorised to import certain products of animal origin, fishery products or live bivalve molluscs(4), as last amended by Decision 2001/4/EC(5), shall be authorised for modifications concerning the deletion of establishments or vessels or changes of their names, but not for the addition of new establishments or vessels.

(5) Decision 2001/634/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Veterinary Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
