DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE

No 35/2018

of 23 March 2018

amending Annex I (Veterinary and phytosanitary matters) to the EEA Agreement [2020/52]

THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE,

Whereas:

(2)

Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1979 of 31 October 2017 amending Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 854/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down specific rules for the organisation of officials controls on products of animal origin intended for human consumption as regard echinoderms harvested outside classified production areas (2) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(4)

This Decision concerns legislation regarding veterinary matters. Legislation regarding veterinary matters 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 sectoral adaptations to Annex I to the EEA Agreement.
