COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 605/2006

of 19 April 2006

amending Regulation (EC) No 349/2003 suspending the introduction into the Community of specimens of certain species of wild fauna and flora

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 338/97 of 9 December 1996 on the protection of species of wild fauna and flora by regulating trade therein (1) and in particular Article 19(2) thereof,

After consulting the Scientific Review Group,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 4(6) of Regulation (EC) No 338/97 provides that the Commission may establish restrictions to the introduction of certain species into the Community in accordance with the conditions laid down in points (a) to (d) thereof. Furthermore, implementing measures for such restrictions have been laid down in Commission Regulation (EC) No 1808/2001 of 30 August 2001 laying down detailed rules concerning the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 338/97 of the protection of species of wild fauna and flora by regulating trade therein (2).

(2)

A list of species for which the introduction into the Community is suspended was established in Commission Regulation (EC) No 349/2003 of 25 February 2003 suspending the introduction into the Community of specimens of certain species of wild fauna and flora (3).

(3)

On the basis of recent information, the Scientific Review Group has concluded that the conservation status of certain species listed in Annexes A and B to Regulation (EC) No 338/97 will be seriously jeopardised if their introduction into the Community from certain countries of origin is not suspended. The introduction of the following species should therefore be suspended: Ursus thibetanus from the Russian Federation; Cryptoprocta ferox, Scaphiophryne gottlebei, Euphorbia banae and E. kondoi from Madagascar; Panthera leo from Ethiopia; Balaeniceps rex, Grus carunculatus and Chamaeleo fuelleborni from the United Republic of Tanzania; Poicephalus gulielmi from Congo; Accipiter melanoleucus, A. ovampensis, Aviceda cuculoides, Hieraaetus ayresii, H. spilogaster, Macheiramphus alcinus, Spizaetus africanus, Urotriorchis macrourus, Falco chicquera, Asio capensis, Bubo lacteus, B. poensis, Glaucidium perlatum, Scotopelia peli and Python regius from Guinea; Sagittarius serpentarius and Varanus exanthematicus from Togo; Agapornis pullarius from the Democratic Republic of the Congo; Cuora galbinifrons from China; Heosemys spinosa, Leucocephalon yuwonoi, Siebenrockiella crassicollis, Liasis fuscus, Euphyllia cristata, E. divisa, E. fimbriata, Hydnophora microconos and Scolymia vitiensis from Indonesia; Geochelone pardalis from Uganda and Zambia; Uromastyx geyri from Mali and Niger; Cordylus mossambicus, C. vittifer, Tridacna maxima and T. squamosa from Mozambique; Dendrobates pumilio from Nicaragua; Hippopus hippopus from Vanuatu; Hippopus hippopus, Tridacna gigas and T. maxima from Tonga and Vietnam; Tridacna crocea, T. derasa, T. maxima and T. squamosa from Fiji and Vanuatu; Tridacna crocea from Tonga; Tridacna maxima from the Federated States of Micronesia and the Marshall Islands; Tridacna tevoroa from Tonga and Catalaphyllia jardinei from the Solomon Islands.

(4)

The Scientific Review Group has also concluded that, on the basis of the most recent available information, the suspension of the introduction into the Community of the following species should no longer be required: Galago senegalensis from Djibouti; Galagoides demidoff from Kenya and Senegal; Callithrix argentata from Paraguay; Saguinus labiatus from Colombia; Callicebus torquatus from Ecuador; Cebus albifrons from Guyana; Cebus capucinus and Aratinga solstitialis from Venezuela; Cebus olivaceus from Peru; Allenopithecus nigroviridis from all range States; Colobus guereza from Equatorial Guinea; Lophocebus albigena from Kenya; Papio hamadryas and Hippopotamus amphibius from Liberia; Cynogale bennettii from Singapore; Ara ararauna from Trinidad and Tobago; Neophema splendida from Australia; Poicephalus gulielmi from Democratic Republic of the Congo; Geochelone chilensis, Homopus areolatus, H. boulengeri, H. femoralis, H. signatus, Kinixys natalensis and Psammobates spp. from all range States; Geochelone denticulata from all range States except for Bolivia and Ecuador; Geochelone elegans from all range States except for Pakistan; Kinixys belliana from all range States except for Mozambique and Benin; Kinixys erosa from all range States except for Togo; Kinixys homeana from all range States except for Benin; Manouria emys from all range States except for Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Myanmar and Thailand; Testudo horsfieldii from all range States except for China, Pakistan and Kazakhstan; Manouria impressa from all range States except for Vietnam; Phelsuma cepediana and P. trilineata from Madagascar; Phelsuma edwardnewtonii from Mauritius; Varanus albigularis from Lesotho; Varanus rudicollis from the Philippines; Ptyas mucosus from Indonesia and Dactylorhiza incarnata from Norway.

(5)

Regulation (EC) No 338/97 as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1332/2005 provides inter alia for the transfer of Cacatua sulphurea and Pyxis arachnoides from Annex B to Annex A and the deletion from the Annexes of Agapornis roseicollis, therefore, import suspensions in respect of those species should no longer be required.

(6)

The countries of origin of the species which are subject to new restrictions to introduction into the Community pursuant to this Regulation have all been consulted.

(7)

The Annex to Regulation (EC) No 349/2003 should therefore be amended accordingly and, for clarity purposes, replaced.

(8)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Trade in Wild Fauna and Flora,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The Annex to Regulation (EC) No 349/2003 is replaced by the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the 20th day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 606/2006

of 19 April 2006

amending Regulation (EC) No 2799/1999 laying down detailed rules for applying Council Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 as regards the grant of aid for skimmed milk and skimmed-milk powder intended for animal feed and the sale of such skimmed-milk powder

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in milk and milk products (1), and in particular Article 15 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 7(1) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 2799/1999 (2) fixes the amount of aid for skimmed milk and skimmed-milk powder intended for animal feed taking into account the factors set out in Article 11(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1255/1999. In view of the developments in the market price of skimmed-milk powder, of the increase in the market prices for competing proteins, and of the reduction of the supply of skimmed-milk powder, the amount of aid should be reduced.

(2)

Regulation (EC) No 2799/1999 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(3)

The Management Committee for Milk and Milk Products has not delivered an opinion within the time-limit set by its chairman,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

In Article 7 of Regulation (EC) No 2799/1999, paragraph 1 is replaced by the following:

‘1.   Aid is fixed at:

(a)

EUR 1,62 per 100 kg of skimmed milk with a protein content of not less than 35,6 % of the non-fatty dry extract;

(b)

EUR 1,42 per 100 kg of skimmed milk with a protein content of not less than 31,4 % but less than 35,6 % of the non-fatty dry extract;

(c)

EUR 20,00 per 100 kg of skimmed-milk powder with a protein content of not less than 35,6 % of the non-fatty dry extract;

(d)

EUR 17,64 per 100 kg of skimmed-milk powder with a protein content of not less than 31,4 % but less than 35,6 % of the non-fatty dry extract.’

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 19 April 2006.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 607/2006

of 19 April 2006

initiating an investigation concerning the possible circumvention of anti-dumping measures imposed by Council Regulation (EC) No 398/2004 on imports of silicon originating in the People's Republic of China by imports of silicon consigned from the Republic of Korea, whether declared as originating in the Republic of Korea or not, and making such imports subject to registration

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 384/96 of 22 December 1995 on protection against dumped imports from countries not members of the European Community (the basic Regulation) (1), and in particular Article 13(3) and Article 14(5) thereof,

After having consulted the Advisory Committee,

Whereas:

A.   REQUEST

(1)

The Commission has received a request pursuant to Article 13(3) of the basic Regulation to investigate the possible circumvention of the anti-dumping measures imposed on imports of silicon originating in the People’s Republic of China.

(2)

The request was lodged on 6 March 2006 by Euro Alliages on behalf of producers representing a major proportion, i.e. 100 % of the Community production of silicon.

B.   PRODUCT

(3)

The product concerned by the possible circumvention is silicon originating in the People’s Republic of China, normally declared under CN code ex 2804 69 00 (the product concerned). This code is given for information only.

(4)

The product under investigation is silicon consigned from the Republic of Korea (the product under investigation) normally declared under the same code as the product concerned.

C.   EXISTING MEASURES

(5)

The measures currently in force and possibly being circumvented are antidumping measures imposed by Council Regulation (EC) No 398/2004 (2).

D.   GROUNDS

(6)

The request contains sufficient prima facie evidence that the anti-dumping measures on imports of silicon originating in the People’s Republic of China are being circumvented by means of the transhipment via Republic of Korea of silicon.

(7)

The evidence submitted is as follows:

The request shows that a significant change in the pattern of trade involving exports from the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Korea to the Community has taken place, and that there is insufficient due cause or economic justification other than the imposition of the duty for such a change.

This change in the pattern of trade appears to stem from the transhipment of silicon originating in the People’s Republic of China via the Republic of Korea.

Furthermore, the request contains sufficient prima facie evidence that the remedial effects of the existing anti-dumping measures on the product concerned are being undermined both in terms of quantity and price. Significant volumes of imports of silicon from the Republic of Korea appear to have replaced imports of the product concerned. In addition, there is sufficient evidence that this increase in imports is made at prices well below the non-injurious price established in the investigation that led to the existing measures.

Finally, the request contains sufficient prima facie evidence that the prices of silicon are dumped in relation to the normal value previously established for the product concerned.

Should circumvention practices via the Republic of Korea covered by Article 13 of the basic Regulation, other than transhipment, be identified in the course of the investigation, the investigation may cover these practices also.

E.   PROCEDURE

(8)

In the light of the above, the Commission has concluded that sufficient evidence exists to justify the initiation of an investigation pursuant to Article 13 of the basic Regulation and to make imports of silicon consigned from the Republic of Korea, whether declared as originating in the Republic of Korea or not, subject to registration, in accordance with Article 14(5) of the basic Regulation.

(a)   Questionnaires

(9)

In order to obtain the information it deems necessary for its investigation, the Commission will send questionnaires to the exporters/producers and to the associations of exporters/producers in the Republic of Korea, to the exporters/producers and to the associations of exporters/producers in the People’s Republic of China, to the importers and to the associations of importers in the Community which cooperated in the investigation that led to the existing measures and to the authorities of the People’s Republic of China and Republic of Korea. Information, as appropriate, may also be sought from the Community industry.

(10)

In any event, all interested parties should contact the Commission forthwith, but not later than the time-limit set in Article 3 of this Regulation in order to find out whether they are listed in the request and, if necessary, request a questionnaire within the time-limit set in Article 3(1) of this Regulation, given that the time limit set in Article 3(2) of this Regulation applies to all interested parties.

(11)

The authorities of the People's Republic of China and Republic of Korea will be notified of the initiation of the investigation.

(b)   Collection of information and holding of hearings

(12)

All interested parties are hereby invited to make their views known in writing and to provide supporting evidence. Furthermore, the Commission may hear interested parties, provided that they make a request in writing and show that there are particular reasons why they should be heard.

(c)   Exemption of imports from registration or measures

(13)

In accordance with Article 13(4) of the basic Regulation, imports of the product under investigation may be exempted from registration or measures if such importation does not constitute circumvention.

(14)

Since the possible circumvention takes place outside the Community, exemptions may be granted, in accordance with Article 13(4) of the basic Regulation, to producers of the product concerned that can show that they are not related to any producer subject to the measures and that are found not to be engaged in circumvention practices as defined in Article 13(1) and 13(2) of the basic Regulation. Producers wishing to obtain an exemption should submit a request duly supported by evidence within the time-limit indicated in Article 3(3) of this Regulation.

F.   REGISTRATION

(15)

Pursuant to Article 14(5) of the basic Regulation, imports of the product under investigation should be made subject to registration in order to ensure that, should the investigation result in findings of circumvention, anti-dumping duties of an appropriate amount can be levied retroactively from the date of registration of such imports consigned from the Republic of Korea.

G.   TIME-LIMITS

(16)

In the interest of sound administration, time-limits should be stated within which:

interested parties may make themselves known to the Commission, present their views in writing and submit questionnaire replies or any other information to be taken into account during the investigation,

producers in the Republic of Korea may request exemption of imports from registration or measures,

interested parties may make a written request to be heard by the Commission.

(17)

Attention is drawn to the fact that the exercise of most procedural rights set out in the basic Regulation depends on the party’s making itself known within the time-limits mentioned in Article 3 of this Regulation.

H.   NON-COOPERATION

(18)

In cases in which any interested party refuses access to or does not provide the necessary information within the time-limits, or significantly impedes the investigation, provisional or final findings, affirmative or negative, may be made in accordance with Article 18 of the basic Regulation, on the basis of the facts available.

(19)

Where it is found that any interested party has supplied false or misleading information, the information shall be disregarded and use may be made of facts available. If an interested party does not cooperate or cooperates only partially and findings are therefore based on facts available in accordance with Article 18 of the basic Regulation, the result may be less favourable to that party than if it had cooperated,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

An investigation is hereby initiated pursuant to Article 13(3) of Council Regulation (EC) No 384/96, in order to determine if imports into the Community of silicon consigned from the Republic of Korea whether declared as originating in the Republic of Korea or not, falling within CN code ex 2804 69 00 (TARIC code 2804690010), are circumventing the measures imposed by Council Regulation (EC) No 398/2004.

Article 2

The Customs authorities are hereby directed, pursuant to Article 13(3) and Article 14(5) of Regulation (EC) No 384/96, to take the appropriate steps to register the imports into the Community identified in Article 1 of this Regulation.

Registration shall expire nine months following the date of entry into force of this Regulation.

The Commission, by Regulation, may direct customs authorities to cease registration in respect of imports into the Community of products manufactured by producers having applied for an exemption of registration and having been found not to be circumventing the anti-dumping duties.

Article 3

1.   Questionnaires should be requested from the Commission within 15 days of the date of the publication of this Regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union.

2.   Interested parties, if their representations are to be taken into account during the investigation, must make themselves known by contacting the Commission, present their views in writing and submit questionnaire replies or any other information within 40 days from the date of the publication of this Regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union, unless otherwise specified.

3.   Producers in the Republic of Korea requesting exemption of imports from registration or measures should submit a request duly supported by evidence within the same 40-day time-limit.

4.   Interested parties may also apply to be heard by the Commission within the same 40-day time-limit.

5.   Any information relating to the matter, any request for a hearing or for a questionnaire as well as any request for exemption of imports from registration or measures must be made in writing (not in electronic format, unless otherwise specified) and must indicate the name, address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers of the interested party. All written submissions, including the information requested in this Regulation, questionnaire replies and correspondence provided by interested parties on a confidential basis shall be labelled as ‘ Limited  (3) and, in accordance with Article 19(2) of the basic Regulation, shall be accompanied by a non-confidential version, which will be labelled ‘ For inspection by interested parties ’.

COMMISSION DECISION

of 7 April 2006

on the re-use of Commission information

(2006/291/EC, Euratom)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 218(2) thereof,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community, and in particular Article 131 thereof,

Having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular Article 28(1) and Article 41(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The new information and communication technologies have created unprecedented possibilities to aggregate and combine content from different sources.

(2)

Public sector information is an untapped resource that could be the basis of new, added-value, information society products and services. The Commission underlined the economic potential of public sector information in its Communication of 23.10.2001 (1)eEurope 2002: Creating an EU framework for the exploitation of public sector information’.

(3)

The Commission and the other Institutions are themselves holders of many documents of all kinds which could be re-used in added-value information products and services and which could provide a useful content resource for companies and citizens alike.

(4)

The right to access Commission documents is regulated through Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents (2).

(5)

Directive 2003/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) sets minimum rules for the re-use of public sector information throughout the European Union. In its recitals it encourages Member States to go beyond these minimum rules and to adopt open data policies, allowing a broad use of documents held by public sector bodies.

(6)

In its Communication ‘eEurope 2002: Creating an EU framework for the exploitation of public sector information’, the Commission announced an update of the policies on the re-use of information of the EU institutions. Several positive steps have been made in this respect, such as the new Eurostat policy on dissemination of information and the move towards a freely accessible Eurlex portal.

(7)

The new Commission initiative ‘i2010 — a European Information Society for growth and employment’, aims among other things at facilitating the creation and circulation of European content. As part of i2010, this Decision determines the conditions for the re-use of Commission documents, with a view to achieving a broad re-use.

(8)

An open re-use policy at the Commission will support new economic activity, lead to a wider use and spread of Community information, enhance the image of openness and transparency of the Institutions, and avoid unnecessary administrative burden for users and Commission services.

(9)

This Decision should be implemented and applied in full compliance with the principles relating to the protection of personal data in accordance with Regulation (EC) 45/2001 of the European Parliament and the Council of 18 December 2000 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community institutions and bodies and on the free movement of such data (4).

(10)

This Decision should not apply to documents for which the Commission is not in a position to allow re-use, e.g. in view of third party intellectual property rights or where the documents have been received from the other Institutions,

HAS DECIDED AS FOLLOWS:

Article 1

Subject matter

This Decision determines the conditions for the re-use of documents held by the Commission or on its behalf by the Office for Official Publications of the European Communities (Publications Office) with the aim of facilitating a wider re-use of information, enhancing the image of openness of the Commission, and avoiding unnecessary administrative burden for re-users and the Commission services alike.

Article 2

Scope

1.   This Decision applies to public documents authored by the Commission or by public and private entities on its behalf:

(a)

which have been published by the Commission or by the Publications Office on its behalf through publications, websites or other dissemination tools; or

(b)

which have not been published for economic or other practical reasons, such as studies, reports and other data.

2.   This Decision shall not apply:

(a)

to software or to documents covered by industrial property rights such as patents, trademarks, registered designs, logos and names;

(b)

to documents for which the Commission is not in a position to allow re-use in view of intellectual property rights of third parties;

(c)

to the research results of the Joint Research Centre;

(d)

to documents made accessible to a party under specific rules governing privileged access to documents.

3.   This Decision shall be implemented in full respect of the rules on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, and in particular Regulation (EC) No 45/2001.

4.   This Decision is without prejudice to and in no way affects Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001.

Article 3

Definitions

For the purposes of this Decision, the following definitions shall apply:

1.

‘document’ shall mean:

(a)

any content whatever its medium (written on paper or stored in electronic form or as a sound, visual or audiovisual recording);

(b)

any part of such content;

2.

‘re-use’ shall mean the use of documents by persons or legal entities of documents, for commercial or non-commercial purposes other than the initial purpose for which the documents were produced. The exchange of documents between the Commission and other public sector bodies which use these documents purely in the pursuit of their public tasks does not constitute re-use;

3.

‘personal data’ shall mean data as defined in Article 2(a) of Regulation (EC) No 45/2001.

Article 4

General principle

Subject to the restrictions set out in Article 2(2) and 2(3) all documents shall be re-usable for commercial or non-commercial purposes in accordance with the conditions set out below. Where possible, documents shall be made available through electronic means.

Article 5

Processing applications for re-use

1.   In order to limit the need to make individual re-use applications the Commission services shall, where appropriate, indicate whether documents are re-usable (e.g. by general notices on web pages).

2.   An application for the re-use of a document shall be handled promptly. An acknowledgement of receipt shall be sent to the applicant. Within 15 working days from registration of the application, the Commission service or Publications Office shall either allow re-use of the document requested, and, where relevant, provide a copy of the document, or, in a written reply, indicate the total or partial refusal of the application, stating the reasons.

3.   In exceptional cases, for example in the event of an application relating to a very long document to a very large number of documents or in case the application needs to be translated, the time-limit provided for in paragraph 2 may be extended by 15 working days, provided that the applicant is notified in advance and that detailed reasons are given.

4.   In the case of a refusal, the Commission service or Publications Office shall inform the applicant of the right to bring an action before the Court of First Instance of the European Communities or to lodge a complaint with the European Ombudsman, under the conditions laid down in Articles 230 and 195 of the EC Treaty, respectively, or Articles 146 and 107(d) of the Euratom Treaty.

5.   Where a refusal is based on Article 2(2)b of this Decision, the reply to the applicant shall include a reference to the natural or legal person who is the rightholder, where known, or alternatively to the licensor from which the Commission has obtained the relevant material, where known.

Article 6

Available formats

Documents shall be made available in any existing format or language version, through electronic means where possible and appropriate.

This does not imply an obligation to create, to adapt or to update documents in order to comply with the application, nor any obligation to provide extracts from documents where this would involve disproportionate effort, going beyond a simple operation.

Neither does this Decision create any obligation for the Commission to translate the documents requested into any other language versions than those already available at the moment of the application.

On the basis of this Decision, the Commission or the Publications Office may not be required to continue the production of certain types of documents or to preserve them in a given format with a view to the re-use of such documents by a natural or legal person.

Article 7

Principles governing charging

1.   The re-use of documents shall in principle be free of charge.

2.   In specific cases, marginal costs incurred for the reproduction and dissemination of documents may be recovered.

3.   In cases where the Commission decides to adapt a document in order to satisfy a specific application, the costs involved in the adaptation may be recovered from the applicant. The assessment of the need to recover such costs shall take into account the effort necessary for the adaptation as well as the potential advantages the re-use may bring to the Communities, for example in terms of spreading information on the functioning of the Communities or in terms of the image of the Institution to the outside world.

Article 8

Transparency

1.   Any applicable conditions and standard charges for the re-use of documents shall be pre-established and published, through electronic means where possible and appropriate.

2.   The search for documents will be facilitated by practical arrangements, such as asset-lists of main documents available for re-use.

Article 9

Licenses

The re-use of documents may be allowed without conditions or conditions may be imposed, where appropriate through a license or through a disclaimer. Typical conditions for re-use include the obligation for the re-user to acknowledge the source of the documents, the obligation not to distort the original meaning or message of the documents, and non-liability of the Commission for any consequence stemming from the re-use. The conditions shall not unnecessarily restrict possibilities for re-use.

Article 10

Non-discrimination and prohibition of exclusive arrangements

1.   Any applicable conditions for the re-use of documents shall be non-discriminatory for comparable categories of re-use.

2.   The re-use of documents shall be open to all potential actors in the market. No exclusive rights shall be granted.

3.   However, where an exclusive right is necessary for the provision of a service in the public interest, the validity of the reason for granting such an exclusive right shall be subject to regular review, and shall, in any event, be reviewed after three years. Any exclusive arrangement shall be transparent and made public.

Article 11

Implementation

In accordance with Article 14 of the Commission’s rules of procedure, the power to take decisions on behalf of the Commission on applications for re-use is delegated to the Directors-General and Heads of Service. They shall take the necessary measures to ensure that the procedures in relation to documents for which they are responsible meet the requirements of this Decision. To this end, they shall designate an official to consider applications for re-use and coordinate the response of the Directorate-General or Service.

Article 12

Review

This Decision shall be reviewed three years after its entry into force. The review shall in particular look into the possible application of this Decision to the research results of the Joint Research Centre.

Article 13

Entry into force

This Decision shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

COMMISSION DECISION

of 12 April 2006

amending Commission Decision 2006/135/EC as regarding the establishment of areas A and B in certain Member States due to outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza

(notified under document number C(2006) 1583)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2006/293/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

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,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/425/EEC of 26 June 1990 concerning veterinary and zootechnical checks applicable in intra-Community trade in certain live animals and products with a view to the completion of the internal market (2), and in particular Article 10(4) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) 998/2003 of 26 May 2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the animal health requirements applicable to the non-commercial movement of pet animals and amending Council Directive 92/65/EEC (3), and in particular Article 18 thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 2005/94/EC of 20 December 2005 on Community measures for the control of avian influenza and repealing Directive 92/40/EEC (4), and in particular Article 66(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Germany has notified the Commission and the other Member States of an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza A virus of subtype H5N1 in poultry on its territory and has taken the appropriate measures provided for in Commission Decision 2006/135/EC of 22 February 2006 concerning certain protection measures in relation to highly pathogenic avian influenza in the Community (5).

(2)

Following that outbreak, Germany took the necessary measures in accordance with Decision 2006/135/EC. After notification of those measures, the Commission has examined them in collaboration with the Member State concerned, and is satisfied that areas A and B established by that Member State are at sufficient distance to the outbreak in poultry. It is therefore necessary to establish areas A and B in Germany and to fix the duration of that regionalisation.

(3)

At the same time, in accordance with Article 2(4), (b) and (c) of Decision 2006/135/EC and following a final evaluation of the epidemiological situation with regard to highly pathogenic avian influenza of the subtype H5N1 in certain parts of France, the measures required for the areas established in accordance with Article 2(2) of that Decision have been discontinued in France.

(4)

It is therefore necessary to amend Parts A and B of Annex I to Decision 2006/135/EC accordingly.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

Annex I to Decision 2006/135/EC is replaced by the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

GUIDELINE OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK

of 7 April 2006

on the Eurosystem’s provision of reserve management services in euro to central banks and countries located outside the euro area and to international organisations

(ECB/2006/4)

(2006/294/EC)

THE GOVERNING COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK,

Having regard to the Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank, and in particular Article 12.1, Article 14.3 and Article 23 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Guideline ECB/2004/13 of 1 July 2004 on the Eurosystem’s provision of reserve management services in euro to central banks and countries located outside the euro area and to international organisations (1) requires amendment to accommodate changes to the definition of ‘reserves’ and the removal of the threshold below which no remuneration is offered on overnight credit balances held as a cash/investment service. Guideline ECB/2004/13 has already been amended once and should therefore be recast in the interests of clarity and transparency.

(2)

Pursuant to Article 23 in conjunction with Article 43.4 of the Statute, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the national central banks of the Member States that have adopted the euro (hereinafter the ‘participating NCBs’) may establish relations with central banks in other countries and, where appropriate, with international organisations, and conduct all types of banking transactions in their relations with third countries and international organisations.

(3)

The Governing Council considers that the Eurosystem should act as a single system when providing Eurosystem reserve management services to such customers, irrespective of the Eurosystem member through which such services are provided. To this end, the Governing Council considers it necessary to adopt this Guideline to ensure, inter alia, that Eurosystem reserve management services are provided on a standardised basis under harmonised terms and conditions, that the ECB receives adequate information regarding these services, and that minimum common features required in contractual arrangements with customers are identified.

(4)

The Governing Council considers it necessary to confirm that all information, data and documents drafted by and/or exchanged between Eurosystem members in the context of Eurosystem reserve management services are of a confidential nature and are subject to Article 38 of the Statute.

(5)

In accordance with Article 12.1 and Article 14.3 of the Statute, ECB guidelines form an integral part of Community law,

HAS ADOPTED THIS GUIDELINE:

Article 1

Definitions

For the purposes of this Guideline:

‘all types of banking transactions’ shall include the provision of Eurosystem reserve management services to central banks and countries located outside the euro area and to international organisations in connection with the management of the reserves of such central banks, countries and international organisations,

‘central banks’ shall include monetary authorities,

‘customer’ shall mean any country (including any public authority or government agency), any central bank or monetary authority located outside the euro area, or any international organisation to which Eurosystem reserve management services are provided by a Eurosystem member,

‘Individual Service Provider’ (ISP) shall mean a Eurosystem member which does not undertake to provide the complete set of Eurosystem reserve management services,

2.   In addition to the services indicated in Article 2, each ESP may also offer other reserve management services to customers. An ESP shall determine such services on an individual basis and such services shall not be subject to this Guideline.

3.   An ISP shall be subject to this Guideline and the requirements of Eurosystem reserve management services as regards one or more Eurosystem reserve management services, or part of such service, which such an ISP provides and which form(s) part of the complete set of Eurosystem reserve management services. Furthermore, each ISP may also offer other reserve management services to customers and shall determine such services on an individual basis. Such services shall not be subject to this Guideline.

Article 4

Information regarding Eurosystem reserve management services

1.   Eurosystem members shall provide the authorised ECB personnel with any relevant information on the provision of Eurosystem reserve management services to new and existing customers and inform the authorised ECB personnel when a potential customer approaches them.

2.   Before Eurosystem members disclose the identity of an existing, new or potential customer, they shall endeavour to obtain the customer’s consent to the disclosure.

3.   If consent is not obtained, the Eurosystem member concerned shall provide the authorised ECB personnel with the required information without revealing the identity of the customer.

Article 5

Prohibition and suspension of Eurosystem reserve management services

1.   The ECB will maintain for consultation by the Eurosystem members a list of existing, new or potential customers whose reserves are affected by a freezing order or similar measure imposed either by one of the EU Member States on the basis of a United Nations Security Council resolution or by the European Union.

2.   If on the basis of a measure or decision, other than those referred to in paragraph 1, adopted for national policy or national interest reasons by a Eurosystem member or by the Member State in which the Eurosystem member is located, the Eurosystem member suspends the provision of Eurosystem reserve management services to an existing customer or refuses to provide such services to a new or potential customer, this member shall promptly notify the authorised ECB personnel thereof. The authorised ECB personnel shall promptly inform the other Eurosystem members thereof. Any such measure or decision shall not prevent the other Eurosystem members from providing Eurosystem reserve management services to such customers.

3.   Article 4(2) and (3) shall apply to any disclosure of the identity of an existing, new or potential customer made pursuant to paragraph 2.

Article 7

Additional minimum common features in contractual arrangements with customers

Eurosystem members shall ensure that their contractual arrangements with customers are consistent with this Guideline and with the following additional minimum common features. The contractual arrangements shall:

(a)

state that the counterparty of the customer is the Eurosystem member with whom that customer has concluded an arrangement for the provision of Eurosystem reserve management services or any part thereof, and that such arrangement does not in itself create customer rights or entitlements vis-à-vis any other Eurosystem members. This provision does not prevent a customer from having an arrangement with several Eurosystem members;

(b)

refer to the links that may be used for the settlement of securities held by customers’ counterparties and the relevant risks of using links not eligible for monetary policy operations;

(c)

refer to the fact that certain transactions within the framework of Eurosystem reserve management services shall be carried out on a best effort basis;

(d)

refer to the fact that the Eurosystem member may make suggestions to customers as to the timing and execution of a transaction to avoid conflicts with the Eurosystem’s monetary and exchange rate policy, and that such member shall not be liable for any consequences that such suggestions may have for the customer;

(e)

refer to the fact that the fees that Eurosystem members charge to their customers for the provision of Eurosystem reserve management services are subject to reviews by the Eurosystem and that the customers shall, in accordance with applicable law, be bound by the fee revisions that might result from such reviews.

Article 8

Role of the ECB

The ECB will coordinate the general provision of Eurosystem reserve management services and the related information framework. Any Eurosystem member that becomes an ESP or that terminates its status as an ESP shall inform the ECB thereof.

Article 9

Final provisions

1.   This Guideline is addressed to the participating NCBs.
