THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Directive 89/662/EEC of 11 December 1989 concerning veterinary checks in intra-Community trade with a view to the completion of the internal market (1), and in particular Article 9(4) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Decision 2014/909/EU (3) established certain protective measures to be taken by Italy following the occurrences of the small hive beetle (Aethina tumida) in certain areas, originally in the regions of Calabria and Sicily. Following epidemiological developments in the past years and following the entry into force of Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2017/370 (4), those measures are currently limited to the region of Calabria.

(2)

(3)

Implementing Decision 2014/909/EU should therefore be amended accordingly.

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