(notified under document number C(2000) 4086)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2001/40/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Decision 95/408/EC of 22 June 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(1), as last amended by Decision 98/603/EC(2), and in particular Article 2(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Commission Decision 97/296/EC(3), as last amended by Decision 2000/674/EC(4), lists the countries and territories from which importation of fishery products for human consumption is authorised. Part I of the Annex lists the names of the countries and territories covered by a specific Decision and part II names those qualifying under Article 2(2) of Decision 95/408/EC.

(2) Commission Decisions 2001/36/EC(5) and 2001/39/EC(6) set specific import conditions for fishery and aquaculture products originating in Jamaica and the Czech Republic, respectively. Jamaica and the Czech Republic should therefore be added to part I of the Annex.

(3) Given the seriousness of the deficiencies observed during an inspection visit to St Vincent and the Grenadines, imports of fishery products from this country should not be authorised and, therefore, this country shall be deleted from the list of the Annex.

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The Annex to this Decision replaces the Annex to Decision 97/296/EC.

Article 2

This Decision shall come into effect 60 days after its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

Article 3

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.
