Commission Directive 2004/32/EC

of 17 March 2004

amending Directive 2001/32/EC as regards certain protected zones exposed to particular plant health risks in the Community

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 2000/29/EC of 8 May 2000 on protective measures against the introduction into the Community of organisms harmful to plants or plant products and against their spread within the Community(1), and in particular the first subparagraph of Article 2(1)(h) thereof,

Having regard to the requests made by Ireland, Italy, Austria and Sweden,

Whereas:

(1) Under Commission Directive 2001/32/EC of 8 May 2001 recognising certain protected zones exposed to particular plant health risks in the Community and repealing Directive 92/76/EEC(2), Ireland and some areas in Italy and Austria were provisionally recognised as protected zones in respect of Erwinia amylovora (Burr.) Winsl. et al. for a period expiring on 31 March 2004.

(2) From information supplied by Ireland and Austria based on surveys, it appears that the provisional recognition of the protected zones for Ireland and Austria in respect of Erwinia amylovora (Burr.) Winsl. et al. should be extended for a further limited period.

(3) From information supplied by Italy based on surveys, it appears that some areas within Italy should no longer be recognised as protected zones in respect of Erwinia amylovora (Burr.) Winsl. et al., whilst other areas should be recognised as "protected zones" in respect of Erwinia amylovora (Burr.) Winsl. et al. for a further limited period.

(4) Under Directive 2001/32/EC, some areas in Sweden were provisionally recognised as protected zones in respect of beet necrotic yellow vein virus for a period expiring on 31 March 2004.

(5) From information supplied by Sweden based on surveys, it appears that those areas within Sweden should no longer be recognised as protected zones in respect of beet necrotic yellow vein virus.

(6) Directive 2001/32/EC should, therefore, be amended accordingly.

(7) The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plant Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:
