Having regard to Council Directive 2000/29/EC of 8 May 2000 on protective measures against the introduction into the Community of organisms harmful to plants or plant products and against their spread within the Community (1), and in particular points 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5 of Section I of Part A of Annex IV thereto,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2015/2416 (2) recognised certain areas of the United States of America as being free from Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire.

(2)

Recent information submitted by the United States of America shows that certain areas of their territories currently recognised as being free from Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire are now no longer free from that harmful organism.

(3)

Moreover the United States of America has submitted information indicating that the Chester county in Tennessee is free from that harmful organism.

(4)

In view of that information, the respective list of areas recognised as being free from that harmful organism should be amended.

(5)

Implementing Decision (EU) 2015/2416 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,
