COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 676/2007

of 11 June 2007

establishing a multiannual plan for fisheries exploiting stocks of plaice and sole in the North Sea

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 37 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (1),

Whereas:

(1)

Recent scientific advice from the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) has indicated that the stocks of plaice and of sole in the North Sea have been subjected to levels of mortality by fishing which have exceeded the level determined by ICES as being consistent with the precautionary approach, and the stocks are at risk of being harvested unsustainably.

(2)

Advice from a committee of experts examining multiannual management strategies indicates that the highest yield of sole can be taken at a fishing mortality rate of 0,2 on ages two to six years.

(3)

The Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF) has advised that the precautionary biomass for the stock of plaice in the North Sea should be 230 000 tonnes, that the fishing mortality rate necessary to produce the highest yield from the stock of plaice in the North Sea in the long term is 0,3 and that the precautionary biomass for the stock of sole in the North Sea should be 35 000 tonnes.

(4)

Measures need to be taken to establish a multiannual plan for fisheries management of the stocks of plaice and sole in the North Sea. Such measures, where they concern the stock of plaice in the North Sea, are to be established in the light of consultations with Norway.

(5)

The objective of the plan is to ensure, in a first stage, that stocks of plaice and sole in the North Sea are brought within safe biological limits, and in a second stage and after due consideration by the Council on the implementing methods for doing so that those stocks, are exploited on the basis of maximum sustainable yield and under sustainable economic, environmental and social conditions.

(6)

Council Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002 of 20 December 2002 on the conservation and sustainable exploitation of fisheries resources under the Common Fisheries Policy (2) requires, inter alia, that to achieve that objective, the Community is to apply the precautionary approach in taking measures to protect and conserve the stock, to provide for its sustainable exploitation and to reduce to a minimum the impact of fishing on marine ecosystems.

(7)

This Regulation should aim at a progressive implementation of an ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management, and should contribute to efficient fishing activities within an economically viable and competitive fisheries industry, providing a fair standard of living for those who depend on fishing North Sea plaice and sole and taking into account the interest of consumers. The Community bases its policy partly on the policy recommended by the appropriate Regional Advisory Council (RAC). A large part of the catches of plaice in the North Sea are taken together with catches of sole. The management of plaice cannot be addressed independently of the management of sole.

(8)

Consequently, in drawing up the multiannual plan, account should also be taken of the fact that the high fishing mortality rate for plaice is due to a great extent to the large discards from beam-trawl sole fishing with 80mm nets in the southern North Sea.

(9)

Such control of the fishing mortality rates can be achieved by establishing an appropriate method for the establishment of the level of total allowable catches (TACs) of the stocks concerned, and a system including limitations on permissible days at sea whereby fishing efforts on those stocks are restricted to levels at which the TACs and planned fishing mortality rates are unlikely to be exceeded, but are sufficient to catch the TAC allowed on the basis of the fishing mortality rates established in the plan.

(10)

The plan should cover all flatfish fisheries having a significant impact on the fishing mortality of the plaice and sole stocks concerned. However, Member States whose quotas for either stock are less than 5 % of the European Community's share of the TAC should be exempted from the provisions of the plan concerning effort management.

(11)

This plan should be the main instrument for flatfish management in the North Sea, and should contribute to the recovery of other stocks such as cod.

(12)

Control measures in addition to those laid down in Council Regulation (EEC) No 2847/93 of 12 October 1993 establishing a control system applicable to the Common Fisheries Policy (3) need to be included in order to ensure compliance with the measures laid down in this Regulation.

(13)

In 2006 the Commission initiated a debate concerning a Community strategy for a gradual reduction in fishing mortality in all major fisheries by means of a communication concerning the attainment of the maximum sustainable yield objective by 2015. The Commission has submitted this communication to the RACs for their opinion.

(14)

The Commission has requested STECF to report on key aspects of impact assessment in relation to the management of plaice and sole, which should be based on accurate, objective and comprehensive biological and financial information. That impact assessment will be annexed to the Commission's proposal concerning the second stage of the multiannual plan.

(15)

The multiannual plan should be deemed to be a recovery plan during its first stage and a management plan during its second stage, within the meaning of Articles 5 and 6 of Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

CHAPTER I

SUBJECT-MATTER AND OBJECTIVE

Article 1

Subject-matter

1.   This Regulation establishes a multiannual plan for the fisheries exploiting the stocks of plaice and sole that inhabit the North Sea.

2.   For the purposes of this Regulation, ‘North Sea’ means the area of the sea delineated by the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea as Sub-area IV.

Article 2

Safe biological limits

1.   For the purposes of this Regulation, the stocks of plaice and sole shall be deemed to be within safe biological limits in those years in which, according to the opinion of the Scientific, Technical, and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF), all of the following conditions are fulfilled:

(a)

the spawning biomass of the stock of plaice exceeds 230 000 tonnes;

(b)

the average fishing mortality rate on ages two to six years experienced by the stock of plaice is less than 0,6 per year;

(c)

the spawning biomass of the stock of sole exceeds 35 000 tonnes;

(d)

the average fishing mortality rate on ages two to six years experienced by the stock of sole is less than 0,4 per year.

2.   If the STECF advises that other levels of biomass and fishing mortality should be used to define safe biological limits, the Commission shall propose to amend paragraph 1.

Article 3

Objectives of the multiannual plan in the first stage

1.   The multiannual plan shall, in its first stage, ensure the return of the stocks of plaice and of sole to within safe biological limits.

2.   The objective specified in paragraph 1 shall be attained by reducing the fishing mortality rate on plaice and sole by 10 % each year, with a maximum TAC variation of 15 % per year until safe biological limits are reached for both stocks.

Article 4

Objectives of the multiannual plan in the second stage

1.   The multiannual plan shall, in its second stage, ensure the exploitation of the stocks of plaice and sole on the basis of maximum sustainable yield.

2.   The objective specified in paragraph 1 shall be attained while maintaining the fishing mortality on plaice at a rate equal to or no lower than 0,3 on ages two to six years.

3.   The objective specified in paragraph 1 shall be attained while maintaining the fishing mortality on sole at a rate equal to or no lower than 0,2 on ages two to six years.

Article 5

Transitional arrangements

1.   When the stocks of plaice and sole have been found for two years in succession to have returned to within safe biological limits the Council shall decide on the basis of a proposal from the Commission on the amendment of Articles 4(2) and 4(3) and the amendment of Articles 7, 8 and 9 that will, in the light of the latest scientific advice from the STECF, permit the exploitation of the stocks at a fishing mortality rate compatible with maximum sustainable yield.

2.   The Commission's proposal for review shall be accompanied by a full impact assessment and shall take into account the opinion of the North Sea Regional Advisory Council.

CHAPTER II

TOTAL ALLOWABLE CATCHES

Article 6

Setting of total allowable catches (TACs)

Each year, the Council shall decide, by qualified majority on the basis of a proposal from the Commission, on the TACs for the following year for the plaice and sole stocks in the North Sea in accordance with Articles 7 and 8 of this Regulation.

Article 7

Procedure for setting the TAC for plaice

1.   The Council shall adopt the TAC for plaice at that level of catches which, according to a scientific evaluation carried out by STECF is the higher of:

(a)

that TAC the application of which will result in a 10 % reduction in the fishing mortality rate in its year of application compared to the fishing mortality rate estimated for the preceding year;

(b)

that TAC the application of which will result in the level of fishing mortality rate of 0,3 on ages two to six years in its year of application.

2.   Where application of paragraph 1 would result in a TAC which exceeds the TAC of the preceding year by more than 15 %, the Council shall adopt a TAC which is 15 % greater than the TAC of that year.

3.   Where application of paragraph 1 would result in a TAC which is more than 15 % less than the TAC of the preceding year, the Council shall adopt a TAC which is 15 % less than the TAC of that year.

Article 8

Procedure for setting the TAC for sole

1.   The Council shall adopt a TAC for sole at that level of catches which, according to a scientific evaluation carried out by STECF is the higher of:

(a)

that TAC the application of which will result in the level of fishing mortality rate of 0,2 on ages two to six years in its year of application;

(b)

that TAC the application of which will result in a 10 % reduction in the fishing mortality rate in its year of application compared to the fishing mortality rate estimated for the preceding year.

2.   Where the application of paragraph 1 would result in a TAC which exceeds the TAC of the preceding year by more than 15 %, the Council shall adopt a TAC which is 15 % greater than the TAC of that year.

3.   Where the application of paragraph 1 would result in a TAC which is more than 15 % less than the TAC of the preceding year, the Council shall adopt a TAC which is 15 % less than the TAC of that year.

CHAPTER III

FISHING EFFORT LIMITATION

Article 9

Fishing effort limitation

1.   The TACs referred to in Chapter II shall be complemented by a system of fishing effort limitation established in Community legislation.

2.   Each year, the Council shall decide by a qualified majority, on the basis of a proposal from the Commission, on an adjustment to the maximum level of fishing effort available for fleets where either or both plaice and sole comprise an important part of the landings or where substantial discards are made and subject to the system of fishing effort limitation referred to in paragraph 1.

3.   The Commission shall request from STECF a forecast of the maximum level of fishing effort necessary to take catches of plaice and sole equal to the European Community's share of the TACs established according to Article 6. This request shall be formulated taking account of other relevant Community legislation governing the conditions under which quotas may be fished.

4.   The annual adjustment of the maximum level of fishing effort referred to in paragraph 2 shall be made with regard to the opinion of STECF provided according to paragraph 3.

5.   The Commission shall each year request the STECF to report on the annual level of fishing effort deployed by vessels catching plaice and sole, and to report on the types of fishing gear used in such fisheries.

6.   Notwithstanding paragraph 4, fishing effort shall not increase above the level allocated in 2006.

7.   Member States whose quotas are less than 5 % of the European Community's share of the TACs of both plaice and sole shall be exempted from the effort management regime.

8.   A Member State concerned by the provisions of paragraph 7 and engaging in any quota exchange of sole or plaice on the basis of Article 20(5) of Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002 that would result in the sum of the quota allocated to that Member State and the quantity of sole or plaice transferred being in excess of 5 % of the European Community's share of the TAC shall be subject to the effort management regime.

9.   The fishing effort deployed by vessels in which plaice or sole are an important part of the catch and which fly the flag of a Member State concerned by the provisions of paragraph 7 shall not increase above the level authorised in 2006.

CHAPTER IV

MONITORING, INSPECTION AND SURVEILLANCE

Article 10

Fishing effort messages

1.   Articles 19b, 19c, 19d, 19e and 19k of Regulation (EEC) No 2847/93 shall apply for vessels operating in the area. Vessels equipped with monitoring systems in accordance with Articles 5 and 6 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 2244/2003 of 18 December 2003 laying down detailed provisions regarding satellite-based vessel monitoring systems (4) shall be excluded from hailing requirements.

2.   Member States may implement alternative control measures to ensure compliance with the obligation referred to in paragraph 1 which are as effective and transparent as these reporting obligations. Such measures shall be notified to the Commission before being implemented.

Article 11

Margin of tolerance

1.   By way of derogation from Article 5(2) of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2807/83 of 22 September 1983 laying down detailed rules for recording information on Member States' catches of fish (5), the permitted margin of tolerance, in estimation of quantities in kilograms live weight of each of plaice and sole retained on board of vessels that have been present in the North Sea shall be 8 % of the logbook figure. In the event that no conversion factor is laid down in Community legislation, the conversion factor adopted by the Member State whose flag the vessel is flying shall apply.

2.   Paragraph 1 shall not apply concerning a species of aquatic organism if the quantity of that species retained on board is less than 50 kg.

Article 12

Weighing of landings

The competent authorities of a Member State shall ensure that any quantity of sole exceeding 300 kg or of plaice exceeding 500 kg, caught in the North Sea shall be weighed before sale using scales that have been certified as accurate.

Article 13

Prior notification

The master of a Community fishing vessel that has been present in the North Sea and who wishes to land any quantity of plaice or sole in a port or a landing location of a third country shall inform the competent authorities of the flag Member State at least 24 hours prior to landing in a third country, of the following information:

(a)

the name of the port or landing location;

(b)

the estimated time of arrival at that port or landing location;

(c)

the quantities in kilograms live weight of all species of which more than 50 kg is retained on board.

The notification may also be made by a representative of the master of the fishing vessel.

Article 14

Separate stowage of plaice and sole

1.   It shall be prohibited to retain on board a Community fishing vessel in any individual container any quantity of plaice or any quantity of sole mixed with any other species of marine organisms.

2.   The masters of Community fishing vessels shall give inspectors of Member States such assistance as will enable the quantities declared in the logbook and the catches of plaice and of sole retained on board to be cross-checked.

Article 15

Transport of sole and plaice

1.   The competent authorities of a Member State may require that any quantity of plaice exceeding 500 kg or any quantity of sole exceeding 300 kg caught in the geographical area referred in Article 1(2) and first landed in that Member State is weighed before being transported elsewhere from the port of first landing using scales that have been certified as accurate.

2.   By way of derogation from Article 13 of Regulation (EEC) No 2847/93, quantities of plaice exceeding 500 kg and quantities of sole exceeding 300 kg which are transported to a place other than that of landing shall be accompanied by the declaration provided for in Article 8(1) of that Regulation. The exemption provided for in Article 13(4)(b) of Regulation (EEC) No 2847/93 shall not apply.

Article 16

Prohibition of transhipments of sole and plaice

A Community fishing vessel that is present in the North Sea shall not tranship any quantity of plaice or sole to any other vessel.

CHAPTER V

FOLLOW-UP

Article 17

Evaluation of management measures

1.   The Commission shall, on the basis of advice from STECF, evaluate the impact of the management measures on the stocks concerned and the fisheries on those stocks, in the second year of application of this Regulation and in each of the following years.

2.   The Commission shall seek scientific advice from the STECF on the rate of progress towards the objectives of the multiannual plan in the third year of application of this Regulation and each third successive year of application of this Regulation. The Commission shall, if appropriate, propose relevant measures, and the Council shall decide by qualified majority on alternative measures to achieve the objectives set out in Articles 3 and 4.

Article 18

Special circumstances

In the event that STECF advises that the spawning stock size of either or both plaice or of sole is suffering reduced reproductive capacity, the Council shall decide by qualified majority on the basis of a proposal from the Commission on a TAC for plaice that is lower than that provided for in Article 7, on a TAC for sole that is lower than that provided for in Article 8, and on levels of fishing effort that are lower than those provided for in Article 9.

CHAPTER VI

FINAL PROVISIONS

Article 19

Assistance under the European Fisheries Fund

1.   During the first stage foreseen in Article 3 of this Regulation, the multiannual plan shall be deemed to be a recovery plan within the meaning of Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 2371/2002, and for the purposes of Article 21(a)(i) of Council Regulation (EC) No 1198/2006 of 27 July 2006 on the European Fisheries Fund (6).

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 678/2007

of 18 June 2007

opening an invitation to tender for the allocation of A3 export licences for fruit and vegetables (tomatoes, oranges, lemons, table grapes, apples and peaches)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2200/96 of 28 October 1996 on the common organisation of the market in fruit and vegetables (1), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 35(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 1961/2001 (2) lays down the detailed rules of application for export refunds on fruit and vegetables.

(2)

Article 35(1) of Regulation (EC) No 2200/96 provides that, to the extent necessary for economically significant exports, the products exported by the Community may be covered by export refunds, within the limits resulting from agreements concluded in accordance with Article 300 of the Treaty.

(3)

Under Article 35(2) of Regulation (EC) No 2200/96, care must be taken to ensure that the trade flows previously brought about by the refund scheme are not disrupted. For this reason and because exports of fruit and vegetables are seasonal in nature, the quantities scheduled for each product should be fixed, based on the agricultural product nomenclature for export refunds established by Commission Regulation (EEC) No 3846/87 (3).These quantities must be allocated taking account of the perishability of the products concerned.

(4)

Article 35(4) of Regulation (EC) No 2200/96 provides that refunds must be fixed in the light of the existing situation and outlook for fruit and vegetable prices on the Community market and supplies available, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, prices on the international market. Account must also be taken of the transport and marketing costs and of the economic aspect of the exports planned.

(5)

In accordance with Article 35(5) of Regulation (EC) No 2200/96, prices on the Community market are to be established in the light of the most favourable prices from the export standpoint.

(6)

The international trade situation or the special requirements of certain markets may call for the refund on a given product to vary according to its destination.

(7)

Tomatoes, oranges, lemons, table grapes, apples and peaches of classes Extra, I and II of the common quality standards can currently be exported in economically significant quantities.

(8)

In order to ensure the best use of available resources and in view of the structure of Community exports, it is appropriate to proceed by an open invitation to tender and to set the indicative refund amount and the scheduled quantities for the period concerned.

(9)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Fresh Fruit and Vegetables,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1.   An invitation to tender for the allocation of A3 export licences is hereby opened. The products concerned, the tender submission period, the indicative refund rates and the scheduled quantities are laid down in the Annex hereto.

2.   The licences issued in respect of food aid as referred to in Article 16 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1291/2000 (4) shall not count against the eligible quantities in the Annex hereto.

3.   Notwithstanding Article 5(6) of Regulation (EC) No 1961/2001, the term of validity of the A3 licences shall be four months.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on 2 July 2007.

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

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 679/2007

of 18 June 2007

fixing the aid for peaches for processing for the 2007/2008 marketing year

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to the Treaty of Accession of Bulgaria and Romania,

Having regard to the Act of Accession of Bulgaria and Romania, and in particular Article 41 thereof,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 of 28 October 1996 on the common organisation of the markets in processed fruit and vegetable products (1), and in particular Article 6(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 3(3) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1535/2003 of 29 August 2003 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 as regards the aid scheme for products processed from fruit and vegetables (2) stipulates that the Commission is to publish the amount of the aid for peaches for processing before 31 May.

(2)

For the Member States of the Community as constituted on 31 December 2006, compliance with the national and Community thresholds for processing peaches referred to in Article 5(1) of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 is examined on the basis of the quantities aided in the three preceding marketing years for which definitive data are available for all the Member States in question.

(3)

The average quantity of peaches processed under the aid scheme over the previous three marketing years is below the Community threshold. The aid to be applied for the 2007/2008 marketing year in each Member State concerned must therefore be the amount set in Article 4(2) of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96.

(4)

The mechanism for examining compliance with the national processing thresholds provided for in Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 is not immediately applicable to Bulgaria and Romania. Transitional measures for its application should therefore be laid down. For the 2007/2008 marketing year, for which there are no data which can be used to examine compliance with the national and Community thresholds for processing peaches in those Member States, and as a precautionary measure, provision should be made for a prior reduction in the aid, to be reimbursed if the thresholds have not been exceeded at the end of that marketing year.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Products Processed from Fruit and Vegetables,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

1.   For the 2007/2008 marketing year the aid provided for in Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 for peaches shall be EUR 47,70 per tonne in the case of the Member States of the Community as constituted on 31 December 2006.

2.   In the case of Bulgaria and Romania, the aid provided for in Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 for peaches shall be EUR 35,78 per tonne.

Article 2

1.   If the Community threshold is not exceeded during examination of compliance with the threshold for the 2007/2008 marketing year, an additional amount equivalent to 25 % of the aid fixed in Article 4(2) of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96 shall be paid in Bulgaria and Romania after the 2007/2008 marketing year.

2.   If the Community threshold is exceeded, or if it is not exceeded or exceeded by less than 25 % in Bulgaria or Romania, an additional amount shall be paid in those Member States after the 2007/2008 marketing year.

The additional amount referred to in paragraph 1 shall be fixed on the basis of the actual amount by which the national threshold concerned is exceeded, up to a maximum of 25 % of the aid fixed in Article 4(2) of Regulation (EC) No 2201/96.

3.   Examination of compliance with the national processing thresholds for Bulgaria and Romania shall be based, for the 2007/2008 marketing year, on the quantities actually aided in the 2007/2008 marketing year.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on the third 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.

of 18 June 2007

amending, for the purposes of its adaptation to technical progress, Council Directive 76/756/EEC concerning the installation of lighting and light-signalling devices on motor vehicles and their trailers

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 70/156/EEC of 6 February 1970 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the type-approval of motor vehicles and their trailers (1), and in particular the second indent of Article 13(2) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 76/756/EEC of 27 July 1976 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the installation of lighting and light-signalling devices on motor vehicles and their trailers (2), and in particular Article 4 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 76/756/EEC is one of the separate Directives in the context of the EC type-approval procedure established by Directive 70/156/EEC. The provisions of Directive 70/156/EEC relating to systems, components and separate technical units for vehicles therefore apply to Directive 76/756/EEC.

(2)

In order to increase road safety by improving the conspicuity of large trucks and their trailers the obligation for fitting retro reflective marking on these vehicles should be introduced into Directive 76/756/EEC.

(3)

In order to take into account further amendments to UN/ECE Regulation No 48 (3) on which the Community has already voted upon, it is appropriate to adapt Directive 76/756/EEC to technical progress by aligning it to the technical requirements of this UN/ECE Regulation. In the interest of clarity Annex II to Directive 76/756/EEC should be replaced.

(4)

Directive 76/756/EEC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for Adaptation to Technical Progress,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

Annex II to Directive 76/756/EEC is replaced by the Annex to this Directive.

Article 2

With effect from 10 July 2011, if the requirements laid down in Directive 76/756/EEC, as amended by this Directive, are not complied with, Member States, on grounds related to the installation of lighting and light-signalling devices, shall consider Certificates of Conformity which accompany new vehicles in accordance with the provisions of Directive 70/156/EEC to be no longer valid for the purposes of Article 7(1) of that Directive.

Article 3

1.   Member States shall adopt and publish, by 9 July 2008, at the latest, the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive. They shall forthwith communicate to the Commission the text of those provisions and a correlation table between those provisions and this Directive.

They shall apply those provisions from 10 July 2008.

When Member States adopt those provisions, they shall contain a reference to this Directive or be accompanied by such a reference on the occasion of their official publication. Member States shall determine how such reference is to be made.

2.   Member States shall communicate to the Commission the text of the main provisions of national law which they adopt in the field covered by this Directive.

Article 4

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

Article 5

This Directive is addressed to the Member States.

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to Council Common Position 2004/293/CFSP (1), and in particular Article 2 thereof in conjunction with Article 23(2) of the Treaty on European Union,

Whereas:

(1)

By Common Position 2004/293/CFSP the Council adopted measures to prevent the entry into, or transit through, the territories of Member States of individuals who are engaged in activities which help persons at large continue to evade justice for crimes for which they have been indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), or who are otherwise acting in a manner which could obstruct the ICTY's effective implementation of its mandate.

(2)

Following the transfer of Ante Gotovina to the custody of the ICTY, certain individuals referred to in Article 2 of the Common Position and connected with Mr Gotovina should be removed from the list. An update of the details of the remaining persons on the list is also necessary.

(3)

In addition, other persons who are engaged in activities which help persons at large continue to evade justice for crimes for which they have been indicted by the ICTY, or who are otherwise acting in a manner which could obstruct the ICTY's effective implementation of its mandate, should be listed.

NOTICE TO READERS

In view of the situation which has arisen following enlargement, some editions of the Official Journal of 27, 29 and 30 December 2006 have been published, in a simplified manner, in the official languages of that date.

It has been decided to republish, as corrigenda and in the Official Journal’s traditional presentation, Acts which appear in those Official Journals.

It is for this reason that Official Journals which contain only those corrigenda have been published in the pre-enlargement language versions. The translations of Acts in the languages of the new Member States will be published in a special edition of the Official Journal of the European Union comprising texts of the institutions and the European Central Bank adopted prior to 1 January 2007.

Given below is a list of the Official Journals published on 27, 29 and 30 December 2006 and their corresponding corrigenda.
