COMMISSION DECISION

of 30 October 2009

amending Decision 2004/432/EC on the approval of residue monitoring plans submitted by third countries in accordance with Council Directive 96/23/EC

(notified under document C(2009) 8347)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2009/800/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to 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 (1), and in particular the fourth subparagraph of Article 29(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 96/23/EC lays down measures to monitor the substances and groups of residues listed in Annex I thereto. Pursuant to Directive 96/23/EC, the inclusion and retention on the lists of third countries from which Member States are authorised to import animals and primary products of animal origin covered by that Directive, are subject to the submission by the third countries concerned of a plan setting out the guarantees which they offer as regards the monitoring of the groups of residues and substances listed in that Annex. Those plans are to be updated at the request of the Commission, particularly when certain checks render it necessary.

(2)

Commission Decision 2004/432/EC of 29 April 2004 on the approval of residue monitoring plans submitted by third countries in accordance with Council Directive 96/23/EC (2) approves the residue monitoring plans submitted by certain third countries listed in the Annex to that Decision for the animals and primary animal products indicated in that list.

(3)

Belize, Cameroon and French Polynesia have submitted residue monitoring plans to the Commission for honey. The evaluation of those plans and the additional information obtained by the Commission provide sufficient guarantees, on the residue monitoring plans submitted by those third countries in respect of honey. That product should therefore be included in the entry for each of those third countries in the list in the Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC.

(4)

Montenegro is currently listed in the Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC for bovine, ovine/caprine, swine, equine and honey. That listing is provisional, pending further information on residues.

(5)

Montenegro has submitted an updated residue monitoring plan to the Commission for bovine, ovine/caprine, swine, poultry, aquaculture products, eggs and honey. The evaluation of that plan and the additional information obtained by the Commission provide sufficient guarantees on the residue monitoring plan in respect of bovine, ovine/caprine, swine and honey. Those products should therefore remain listed in the entry for Montenegro in the list in the Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC, and the indication on the provisional nature of that entry should be deleted.

(6)

In addition, the evaluation of that plan and the additional information obtained by the Commission provide sufficient guarantees on the residue monitoring plan in respect of poultry, aquaculture animals and eggs. Those products should therefore be included in the entry for Montenegro in the list in the Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC.

(7)

Equine are not covered by the updated residue monitoring plan submitted to the Commission by Montenegro. Equine should therefore be deleted from the entry for that third country in the list in the Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC.

(8)

Seychelles is currently listed in the Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC for aquaculture products but has not submitted a residue monitoring plan to the Commission for 2009. The entry for Seychelles for aquaculture products should therefore be deleted from the Annex to that Decision.

(9)

For the sake of clarity and consistency of Community legislation, certain minor amendments should be made to the footnotes in the Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC.

(10)

In order to avoid any disruption to trade a transitional period should be laid down to cover consignments of some animals and products of animal origin originating in Montenegro and Seychelles which were dispatched from those third countries for the Community before the date of application of this Decision.

(11)

Decision 2004/432/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(12)

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

The Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC is replaced by the text in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision shall apply from 1 November 2009.

The amendments to the list in the Annex to Decision 2004/432/EC by the present Decision shall not apply to consignments of equine and equine products from Montenegro and aquaculture from Seychelles where the importer of such animals and products can demonstrate that they had been dispatched respectively from Montenegro and Seychelles and were en route to the Community before the date of application of the present Decision.

Article 3

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 30 October 2009.
