DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE

No 232/2016

of 2 December 2016

amending Annex II (Technical regulations, standards, testing and certification) to the EEA Agreement [2018/1170]

THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE,

Having regard to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (‘the EEA Agreement’), and in particular Article 98 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1379 of 16 August 2016 refusing to authorise certain health claims made on foods, other than those referring to the reduction of disease risk and to children's development and health (1) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(2)

Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1381 of 16 August 2016 refusing to authorise a health claim made on foods and referring to children's development and health (2) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(3)

This Decision concerns legislation regarding foodstuffs. Legislation regarding foodstuffs shall not apply to Liechtenstein as long as the application of the Agreement between the European Community and the Swiss Confederation on trade in agricultural products is extended to Liechtenstein, as specified in the introduction to Chapter XII of Annex II to the EEA Agreement. This Decision is therefore not to apply to Liechtenstein.

(4)

Annex II to the EEA Agreement should therefore be amended accordingly,
