COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DIRECTIVE (EU) 2018/1028

of 19 July 2018

correcting Implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2109 amending Council Directive 66/401/EEC as regards the inclusion of new species and the botanical name of the species Lolium x boucheanum Kunth

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Directive 66/401/EEC of 14 June 1966 on the marketing of fodder plant seed (1), and in particular Article 21a thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Due to a clerical error in Commission Implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2109 (2) which amended Directive 66/401/EEC, the footnote reference ‘(1)’ in Annex III to Directive 66/401/EEC was erroneously deleted from the entry ‘Poaceae (Gramineae)’. As a result, it is no longer possible for Member States to authorise the maximum lot weight to be increased to 25 tonnes where the supplier has been authorised for this purpose by the competent authority.

(2)

The relevant Annex to Implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2109 should therefore be corrected accordingly.

(3)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:
