(Text with EEA relevance)

(1999/529/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 of fishery products(1), as last amended by Directive 97/79/EC(2), and in particular Article 11 thereof,

(1) Whereas Article 1 of Commission Decision 94/766/EC of 21 November 1994 laying down special conditions governing the import of fishery and aquaculture products originating in Taiwan(3) as last amended by Decision 96/255/EC(4), which states that the Bureau of Commodity Inspection and Quarantine (BCIQ) shall be the Competent Authority in Taiwan for verifying and certifying compliance of fishery and aquaculture products with the requirements of Directive 91/493/EEC;

(2) Whereas, following a restructuring of the Taiwan administration, the competent, authority for health certificates for fishery products has changed from the "BCIQ" to the "Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI)" of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and this new authority is capable of effectively verifying the application of the laws in force; whereas it is, therefore, necessary to modify the nomination of the competent authority named by Decision 94/766/EC;

(3) Whereas it is convenient to harmonise the wording of Commission Decision 94/766/EC with the wording of the more recently adopted Commission Decisions laying down special conditions governing imports of fishery and aquaculture products originating in certain third countries;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

1. Article 1 shall be replaced by the following: "Article 1

The 'Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI)' of the Ministry of Economic Affairs shall be the competent authority in Taiwan for verifying and certifying compliance of fishery and aquaculture products with the requirements of Directive 91/493/EEC;"
