(notified under document number C(2002) 427)

(2002/111/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 92/33/EEC of 28 April 1992 on the marketing of vegetable propagating and planting material other than seed(1), as last amended by Commission Decision 1999/29/EC(2), and in particular Article 16(2), second subparagraph, thereof,

Whereas:

(1) The Commission is required pursuant to Article 16(1) of Directive 92/33/EEC to decide whether vegetable propagating and planting material, other than seed, produced in a third country and affording the same guarantees as regards obligations on the supplier, identity, characteristics, plant health, growing medium, packaging, inspection arrangements, marking and sealing, is equivalent in all these respects to vegetable propagating and planting material other than seed produced in the Community and complying with the requirements and conditions of that Directive.

(2) However, the information presently available on the conditions applying in third countries is still not sufficient to enable the Commission to adopt any such decision in respect of any third country at this stage.

(3) In order to prevent trade patterns from being disrupted, Member States importing vegetable propagating and planting material, other than seed, from third countries should be allowed to continue to apply to such products conditions equivalent to those applicable to similar Community products in accordance with Article 16(2) of Directive 92/33/EEC.

(4) The period of application of the derogation provided for to in Article 16(2), first subparagraph, of Directive 92/33/EEC, which was extended until 31 December 2001 by Decision 1999/29/EC, should accordingly be further extended.

(5) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Seeds and Propagating Materials for Agriculture, Horticulture and Forestry,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

In the first subparagraph of Article 16(2) of Directive 92/33/EEC, the date "31 December 2001" is replaced by "31 December 2004".

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 11 February 2002.
