THE EFTA SURVEILLANCE AUTHORITY,

Having regard to the EEA Agreement, in particular Article 109 and Protocol 1 thereof,

Having regard to the Surveillance and Court Agreement, in particular Article 5(2)(d) and Protocol 1 thereof,

Having regard to points 4(B)(1) and (3) and point (5)(b) of the Introductory Part of Chapter I of Annex I to the EEA Agreement,

Having regard to the Act referred to in point 1.1.4 of Chapter I of Annex I to the EEA Agreement laying down the principles governing the organisation of veterinary checks on products entering the Community from third countries (Council Directive 97/78/EC), as adapted by way of Protocol 1 to the EEA Agreement and by sectoral adaptations to Annex I to the same Agreement, in particular Article 6(2) of the Act,

Having regard to the Act referred to in point 1.1.5 of Chapter I of Annex I to the EEA Agreement laying down the principles governing the organisation of veterinary checks on animals entering the Community from third countries and amending Directives 89/662/EEC, 90/425/EEC and 90/675/EEC (Council Directive 91/496/EEC), as adapted by way of Protocol 1 to the EEA Agreement and by sectoral adaptations to Annex I to the same Agreement, in particular Article 6(4) of the Act,

Whereas the EFTA Surveillance Authority by Decision No 325/99/COL of 16 December 1999 drew up a list of border inspection posts in Iceland and Norway approved for veterinary checks on products and animals from third countries,

Whereas the EFTA Surveillance Authority, in close cooperation with the European Commission (hereinafter referred to as the Commission) and the competent authorities of Iceland and Norway, have inspected all the border inspection posts listed in Decision No 325/99/COL,

Whereas by EEA Joint Committee Decision No 101/2001 of 28 September 2001, the Contracting Parties to the EEA Agreement, have at Annex I (Veterinary Issues) paragraph 4B(3) agreed that the EC Commission and the EFTA Surveillance Authority shall arrange joint inspection visits to establish a common recommendation for the purposes of the decisions to which reference is made in Annex I paragraph 5(b) second indent of the Agreement,

Whereas, by EEA Joint Committee Decision No 101/2001 of 28 September 2001, the Contracting Parties to the EEA Agreement, taking the recommendations following the joint inspection visits by the EFTA Surveillance Authority and the Commission into consideration, have replaced the adaptation text of Point 39 (Commission Decision 97/778/EC) in Part 1.2 of Chapter I of Annex I to the EEA Agreement,

Whereas for that reason the EFTA Surveillance Authority Decision No 325/99/COL of 16 December 1999 drawing up a list of border inspection posts in Iceland and Norway approved for veterinary checks on products and animals from third countries should be repealed,

Whereas the Government of Iceland has requested the EFTA Surveillance Authority to add the border inspection posts in the port of Húsavík, the port of Njarðvík, the port of Siglufjörður and the port of þorlákshöfn, to the list of border inspection posts in Iceland and Norway approved for veterinary checks on products and animals from third countries,

Whereas the Government of Norway has requested the EFTA Surveillance Authority to add the border inspection post in the port of Måløy to the list of border inspection posts in Iceland and Norway approved for veterinary checks on products and animals from third countries,

Whereas the addition of the border inspection posts in the port of Húsavík, the port of Njarðvík, the port of Siglufjörður and the port of þorlákshöfn, Iceland and the border inspection post in the port of Måløy, Norway to the list of border inspection posts laid down in the Annex to this Decision is based on a common recommendation (Document No 02-02893-A and 02-02898-A) following a joint inspection visit by inspectors from the EFTA Surveillance Authority and from the Commission, as referred to in paragraph 4(B)3 of the Introductory part of Annex I to the EEA Agreement,

Whereas, based on an initiative from the Commission and on a common recommendation by the inspectors from the EFTA Surveillance Authority and from the Commission (Document No 02-03928-A and Document No 02-3929-A), the inspection centre in Kirkenes Port has been upgraded to a border inspection post,

Whereas at the request of the Government of Iceland and the Government of Norway various amendments have been made to the details of the listing for the border inspection posts in the adaptation text of point 39 (Commission Decision 97/778/EC) in Part 1.2 of Chapter I of Annex I to the EEA Agreement,

Whereas the inspection centres have been listed in the same way as the Commission has listed the inspection centres in the European Union in Commission Decision 2001/881/EC of 7 December 2001 drawing up a list of border inspection posts agreed for veterinary checks on animals and animal products from third countries and updating the detailed rules concerning the checks to be carried out by the experts of the Commission,

Whereas the EFTA Surveillance Authority by its Decisions 60/02/COL and 85/02/COL referred the matter to the EFTA Veterinary Committee assisting the EFTA Surveillance Authority,

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the EFTA Veterinary Committee assisting the EFTA Surveillance Authority,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

1. Veterinary checks on live animals and animal products brought into Iceland and Norway from third countries shall be carried out by the competent national authorities at the agreed border inspection posts listed in the Annex to this Decision.

2. The EFTA Surveillance Authority Decision No 325/99/COL of 16 December 1999 drawing up a list of border inspection posts in Iceland and Norway approved for veterinary checks on products and animals from third countries is hereby repealed.
