Whereas:

The list shall be kept up to date by the European Commission."

Specific export requirements for Category 3 scheduled substances

Without prejudice to more specific requirements to be determined on the basis of agreements with the countries concerned, exports of scheduled substances in Category 3 are subject, pursuant to Article 5a(2) of the basic Regulation, to the provisions of Article 4 of the basic Regulation whenever they are destined for an operator established in a country which is included in the list published in the C series of the Official Journal and an open individual authorisation cannot be granted pursuant to paragraph 3 of that Article.
