authorising the extension of use of oil from the micro algae Schizochytrium sp. as a novel food under Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 of the European Parliament and of the Council, and amending Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2470

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2015 on novel foods, amending Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 of the European parliament and of the Council and repealing Regulation (EC) No 258/97 and Commission Regulation (EC) No 1852/2001 (1), and in particular Article 12 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 provides that only novel foods authorised and included in the Union list may be placed on the market within the Union.

(2)

Pursuant to Article 8 of Regulation (EU) 2015/2283, Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2470 (2) was adopted, which establishes a Union list of authorised novel foods.

(3)

Pursuant to Article 12 of Regulation (EU) 2015/2283, the Commission is to decide on the authorisation and on the placing on the Union market of a novel food and on updating the Union list.

(4)

Commission Implementing Decision (EU) No 463/2014 (3) authorised, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 258/97 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4) concerning novel food and novel food ingredients, the placing on the market of oil containing docosahexaenoic acid (‘DHA’) from the micro algae Schizochytrium sp. as a novel food ingredient to be used in certain foods, foods intended for use in energy restricted diets for weight reduction, dietary foods for special medical purposes, other foods for particular nutritional uses as defined in Directive 2009/39/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (5) (excluding infant and follow on formulae) and food supplements.

(5)

Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2015/545 (6) authorised, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 258/97, the placing on the market of oil containing docosahexaenoic acid (‘DHA’) from another strain of the micro algae Schizochytrium sp. (ATCC PTA 9695), as a novel food ingredient to be used in certain foods, including infant and follow on formulae and processed cereal-based foods and baby foods for infants and young children.

(6)

On 21 November 2016, the company Mara Renewables Corporation made a request to the competent authority of the United Kingdom for an extension of use of oil produced from a different strain of the micro algae Schizochytrium sp. (strain T18) within the meaning of point (d) of Article 1(2) of Regulation (EC) No 258/97. The application requested to use oil from this Schizochytrium sp. strain T18 for all foods authorised by Implementing Decisions (EU) No 463/2014 and (EU) 2015/545, and extend its use to fruit and vegetable purees.

(7)

On 10 January 2017, the company Mara Renewables Corporation notified the Commission that it placed the novel food ingredient ‘oil from Schizochytrium sp.’ produced with strain T18 on the Union market pursuant to Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 258/97. The company intended to use this novel food ingredient in all previously authorised foods under Implementing Decision (EU) No 463/2014.

(8)

On 22 September 2017, the company Nutraveris notified the Commission that it placed the novel food ingredient ‘oil from Schizochytrium sp.’ produced with strain T18 on the Union market pursuant to Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 258/97. The company intended to use this novel food ingredient in all previously authorised foods under Implementing Decisions (EU) No 463/2014 and (EU) 2015/545.

(9)

On 23 October 2017, the company BASF notified the Commission that it placed the novel food ingredient ‘oil from Schizochytrium sp.’ produced with strain T18 on the Union market pursuant to Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 258/97. The company intended to use this novel food ingredient in all previously authorised foods under Implementing Decisions (EU) No 463/2014 and (EU) 2015/545.

(10)

Pursuant to Article 35(1) of Regulation (EU) 2015/2283, any request for placing a novel food on the market within the Union submitted to a Member State in accordance with Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 258/97 and for which the final decision has not been taken before 1 January 2018 shall be treated as an application submitted under Regulation (EU) 2015/2283.

(11)

While the request for an extension of use of oil from the micro-algae species Schizochytrium sp. strain T18 was submitted to a Member State in accordance with Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 258/97, the application also meets the requirements laid down in Regulation (EU) 2015/2283.

(12)

On 6 October 2017, the competent authority of the United Kingdom issued its initial assessment report. In that report it came to the conclusion that the extension of use of oil from strain T18 of the micro-algae Schizochytrium sp. meets the criteria for novel food set out in Article 3(1) of Regulation (EC) No 258/97.

(13)

On 7 October 2017, the Commission forwarded the initial assessment report to the other Member States. Comments were made by the other Member States within the 60-day period laid down in the first subparagraph of Article 6(4) of Regulation (EC) No 258/97 which confirmed the conclusions of the initial assessment.

(14)

The initial report conclusions give sufficient grounds to establish that the extension of use of oil from strain T18 of the micro-algae Schizochytrium sp. complies with Article 12(1) of Regulation (EU) 2015/2283.

(15)

Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and Council (7) establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products lays down requirements for agricultural products, in particular on milk and milk products. The extension of use of DHA-rich oil from the micro-algae Schizochytrium sp. strain T18 should be authorised without prejudice to that Regulation.

(16)

Directive 2002/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (8) lays down requirements on food supplements. The extension of use of oil from the micro-algae species Schizochytrium sp. strain T18 should be authorised without prejudice to that Directive.

(17)

Regulation (EU) No 609/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (9) lays down requirements on food intended for infants and young children, food for special medical purposes, and total diet replacement for weight control. The extension of use of oil from the micro-algae species Schizochytrium sp. strain T18 should be authorised without prejudice to that Regulation.

of 16 July 2018

on the position to be taken, on behalf of the European Union, within the Joint Committee established under the Agreement on the international occasional carriage of passengers by coach and bus (Interbus Agreement), as regards draft Decision No x/xxxx of that Committee

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 91 in conjunction with Article 218(9) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

The Agreement on the international occasional carriage of passengers by coach and bus (Interbus Agreement) (1) (the ‘Agreement’) was concluded by the Union by Council Decision of 3 October 2002 (2) and entered into force on 1 January 2003 (3).

(2)

Pursuant to point (b) of Article 24(2) of the Agreement, the Joint Committee set up under Article 23 of the Agreement (the ‘Joint Committee’) amends or adapts control documents and other models of documents established in the Annexes to the Agreement. In order to incorporate future measures taken within the Union, and in accordance with point (c) of Article 24(2) of the Agreement, the Joint Committee amends or adapts Annex 1 regarding the conditions applying to road passenger transport operators, as well as Annex 2 concerning technical standards applying to buses and coaches. In accordance with point (e) of Article 24(2) of the Agreement, the Joint Committee also amends or adapts the requirements concerning the social provisions.

(3)

The last update of Union legislation in the Agreement, which was introduced by Decision No 1/2011 of the Joint Committee (4), takes into account Union acts adopted until the end of 2009.

(4)

The Joint Committee is to adopt a Joint Committee Decision updating the Agreement to legislative and technical progress, during its meetings in 2018.

(5)

Council Decision (EU) 2016/1146 (5) established the European Union position on a draft Decision by the Joint Committee taking into account Union acts adopted until the end of 2015.

(6)

In the course of negotiations with the other Contracting Parties (6) of the Agreement, it became clear that some amendments needed to be introduced to the text approved by the Council. These concerned, in particular, the relationship between the Union rules in respect of the smart tachograph and the European Agreement concerning the Work of Crews of Vehicles engaged in International Road Transport (AETR) (the ‘AETR Agreement’) and, given the situation in some Contracting Parties to the Interbus Agreement, a transitional period regarding the amounts of compensation established in Article 7 of Regulation (EU) No 181/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council (7).

(7)

It is appropriate to repeal Council Decision (EU) 2016/1146 and to establish a new position to be taken on the Union's behalf in the Joint Committee, during its meetings in 2018, as the Decision to be adopted by that committee will be binding on the Union.

(8)

The position of the Union within the meetings of the Joint Committee from 2018 should therefore be based on the attached draft Decision,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The position to be taken on behalf of the Union during the meetings of the Joint Committee set up under Article 23 of the Agreement on the international occasional carriage of passengers by coach and bus (Interbus Agreement) shall be based on the draft Decision of the Joint Committee attached to this Decision.

Article 3

This decision and the decision of the Joint Committee shall be published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2018/1036

of 19 July 2018

amending the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU concerning animal health control measures relating to African swine fever in certain Member States

(notified under document C(2018) 4875)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Directive 89/662/EEC of 11 December 1989 concerning veterinary checks in intra-Community trade with a view to the completion of the internal market (1), and in particular Article 9(4) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/425/EEC of 26 June 1990 concerning veterinary and zootechnical checks applicable in intra-Community trade in certain live animals and products with a view to the completion of the internal market (2), and in particular Article 10(4) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 2002/99/EC of 16 December 2002 laying down the animal health rules governing the production, processing, distribution and introduction of products of animal origin for human consumption (3), and in particular Article 4(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU (4) lays down animal health control measures in relation to African swine fever in certain Member States, where there have been confirmed cases of that disease in domestic or feral pigs (the Member States concerned). The Annex to that Implementing Decision demarcates and lists certain areas of the Member States concerned in Parts I to IV thereof, differentiated by the level of risk based on the epidemiological situation as regards that disease. The Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU has been amended several times to take account of changes in the epidemiological situation in the Union as regards African swine fever that need to be reflected in that Annex. The Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU was last amended by Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2018/1008 (5), following recent instances of African swine fever in Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Romania.

(2)

The risk of the spread of African swine fever in wildlife is linked to the natural slow spread of that disease among feral pig populations, and also the risks linked to human activity, as demonstrated by the recent epidemiological evolution of that disease in the Union, and as documented by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in the Scientific Opinion of the Panel on Animal Health and Welfare, published on 14 July 2015; in the Scientific Report of EFSA on Epidemiological analyses on African swine fever in the Baltic countries and Poland, published on 23 March 2017; and in the Scientific Report of EFSA on Epidemiological analyses of African swine fever in the Baltic States and Poland, published on 7 November 2017 (6).

(3)

Since the date of adoption of Implementing Decision (EU) 2018/1008, the epidemiological situation in the Union has evolved as regards African swine fever, and there have been further instances of that disease that need to be reflected in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU.

(4)

In July 2018, an outbreak of African swine fever in domestic pigs was observed in the county of Braila in Romania. This outbreak of African swine fever in domestic pigs constitutes an increased level of risk which should be reflected in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. Accordingly, the areas of Romania affected by African swine fever should be listed in Parts I and III of that Annex.

(5)

In July 2018, two outbreaks of African swine fever in domestic pigs were observed in the Bukaišu parish, in the county of Tērvetes and in the region of Saldus in Latvia. These outbreaks of African swine fever in domestic pigs constitute an increased level of risk which should be reflected in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. Accordingly, these areas of Latvia affected by African swine fever should now be listed in Part III instead of in Part II of that Annex.

(6)

In July 2018, an outbreak of African swine fever in domestic pigs was observed in the region of Šiauliai in Lithuania. This outbreak of African swine fever in domestic pigs constitutes an increased level of risk which should be reflected in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. Accordingly, this area of Lithuania affected by African swine fever should now be listed in Part III of that Annex instead of in Part II thereof.

(7)

In addition, in July 2018, a case of African swine fever in a feral pig was observed in the region of Telšiai in Lithuania. This case of African swine fever in a feral pig constitutes an increased level of risk which should be reflected in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. Accordingly, this area of Lithuania affected by African swine fever should now be listed in Part II of that Annex instead of in Part I thereof.

(8)

In July 2018, two cases of African swine fever in feral pigs were observed in the districts of Młynary and Hrubieszów in Poland. These cases of African swine fever in feral pigs constitute an increased level of risk which should be reflected in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. Accordingly, these areas of Poland affected by African swine fever should now be listed in Part II of that Annex instead of in Part I thereof.

(9)

In order to take account of recent developments in the epidemiological evolution of African swine fever in the Union, and in order to combat the risks associated with the spread of that disease in a proactive manner, new high risk areas of a sufficient size should be demarcated for Romania, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland and duly listed in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. That Annex should therefore be amended accordingly.

(10)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2018/1037

of 20 July 2018

terminating the anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of low carbon ferro-chrome originating in the People's Republic of China, Russian Federation and Turkey

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2016/1036 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2016 on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Union (1) (‘the basic Regulation’), and in particular Article 9(1) thereof,

Whereas:

1.   PROCEDURE

1.1.   Initiation

(1)

On 23 June 2017, the European Commission (‘the Commission’) initiated an anti-dumping investigation with regard to imports into the Union of low carbon ferro-chrome (‘LCFC’) originating in the People's Republic of China (‘PRC’), the Russian Federation (‘Russia’) and Turkey (‘the countries concerned’) on the basis of Article 5 of the basic Regulation. It published a Notice of Initiation in the Official Journal of the European Union (2) (‘the Notice of Initiation’).

(2)

The Commission initiated the investigation following a complaint lodged on 10 May 2017 by the Association of European ferro-alloy producers (‘Euroalliages’, or ‘the complainant’) on behalf of the sole Union producer of low carbon ferro-chrome in the Union, Elektrowerk Weisweiler GmbH. The complainant represents 100 % of the total Union production of LCFC. The complaint contained evidence of dumping and of resulting material injury that was sufficient to justify the initiation of the investigation.

(3)

In the Notice of Initiation, the Commission invited interested parties to contact it in order to participate in the investigation. In addition, the Commission specifically informed the complainant, the known exporting producers in the countries concerned and the Chinese, Russian, and Turkish authorities, known importers, and users, as well as associations known to be concerned about the initiation of the investigation and invited them to participate.

1.2.   Replies to the questionnaire

(4)

The Commission sent questionnaires to the sole Union producer of LCFC, to ten users, and eight importers that came forward after initiation.

(5)

The Commission received replies from one Turkish producer, the sole Union producer, and from four users of LCFC. None of the eight importers replied to the questionnaire.

1.3.   Verification visits

(6)

The Commission sought and verified all the information deemed necessary for a determination of dumping, resulting injury and Union interest. Verification visits pursuant to Article 16 of the basic Regulation were carried out at the premises of the following companies.

Union producers

Elektrowerk Weisweiler GmbH — ‘EWW’, Germany and its related company Afarak Trading Limited — ‘ATL’, Malta

Users

Aperam Sourcing SCA, Luxembourg

Salzgitter AG, Germany

VDM Metals International GmbH, Germany

Exporting producer in Turkey

Eti Elektrometalurji A.Ș., Antalya, Turkey

1.4.   Investigation period and period considered

(7)

The investigation of dumping and injury covered the period from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017 (‘the investigation period’ or ‘IP’). The examination of trends relevant for the assessment of injury covered the period from 1 January 2014 to the end of the investigation period (‘the period considered’).

1.5.   Non imposition of provisional measures

(8)

Due to lack of clarity on the product scope, the Commission decided not to impose provisional measures, but to continue the investigation. On 23 March 2018, all interested parties received an information document setting out the reasons for the non-imposition of provisional measures. Several interested parties submitted written comments.

2.   WITHDRAWAL OF THE COMPLAINT AND TERMINATION OF THE PROCEEDING

(9)

By email of 22 May 2018, the complainant informed the Commission that wished to withdraw its complaint.

(10)

In accordance with Article 9(1) of the basic Regulation, proceedings may be terminated where the complaint is withdrawn, unless such termination would not be in the Union interest.

(11)

The complainant is the sole producer of LCFC in the Union and no other party has come forward to oppose any potential imposition of anti-dumping measures. Since the investigation had otherwise not brought to light any considerations showing that termination would not be in the Union's interest, it was considered that the present proceeding should be terminated.

(12)

In light of the withdrawal of the complaint by the Union industry and the proposed termination of the proceeding without imposition of measures, the Commission did not consider it necessary to analyse the comments received from interested parties regarding the initiation of the investigation and regarding the preliminary findings spelled out in the information document mentioned in recital (8).

3.   DISCLOSURE AND CONCLUSION

(13)

Interested parties were informed about the Commission's intention to terminate the proceeding and were given an opportunity to comment. However, the Commission received no comments which would justify that such termination would not be in the Union interest.

(14)

The Commission therefore concludes that the anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports into the Union of ferro-chromium, containing by weight more than 0,05 % but not more than 0,5 % of carbon originating in the PRC, Russia and Turkey, should be terminated without the imposition of measures.

(15)

This Decision is in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 15(1) of the basic Regulation,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of ferro-chromium, containing by weight more than 0,05 % but not more than 0,5 % of carbon originating in the PRC, Russia and Turkey, currently falling under CN code 7202 49 50, is hereby terminated.

Article 2

This Decision shall enter into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Done at Brussels, 20 July 2018.

For the Commission

The President

Jean-Claude JUNCKER
