(Text with EEA relevance)

(2004/479/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to the Treaty of Accession of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Malta, Lithuania, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia, and in particular Article 2(3) thereof,

Having regard to the Act of Accession of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia, and in particular Article 42 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Some national reference laboratories for the detection of residues in the new Member States, mentioned in Commission Decision 98/536/EC (1), will have difficulties in carrying out from 1 May 2004 certain tasks in compliance with Council Directive 96/23/EC of 29 April 1996 on measures to monitor certain substances and residues thereof in live animals and animal products and repealing Directives 85/358/EEC and 86/469/EEC and Decisions 89/187/EEC and 91/664/EEC (2).

(2)

These laboratories need a limited period of time to prepare in particular as regards developing analytical methods to be in full compliance with Directive 96/23/EC.

(3)

In order to facilitate the transition from the existing regime to that resulting from the application of the Community veterinary rules, it is therefore appropriate to grant these laboratories a transitional period in order to enable these laboratories to make the necessary preparations.

(4)

These laboratories have given reliable guarantees of the existence of the necessary agreements with other laboratories in the European Community which will carry out the necessary tasks during that time.

(5)

Due to the state of preparedness of these laboratories, the transitional period should be limited to a maximum period of 12 months.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

During a period expiring on 1 May 2005, the laboratories listed in column D of the Annex may carry out the tasks in accordance with Article 14(1) of Directive 96/23/EC pursuant to which the laboratories listed in column B are listed in Commission Decision 98/536/EC .
