COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 312/2008

of 3 April 2008

amending Council Regulation (EC) No 297/95 as regards the adjustment of the fees of the European Medicines Agency to the inflation rate

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 297/95 of 10 February 1995 on fees payable to the European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products (1), and in particular Article 12 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 67(3) of Regulation (EC) No 726/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 31 March 2004 laying down Community procedures for the authorisation and supervision of medicinal products for human and veterinary use and establishing a European Medicines Agency (2), stipulates that the revenue of the European Medicines Agency (hereinafter the Agency) shall consist of a contribution from the Community and fees paid by undertakings to the Agency. Regulation (EC) No 297/95 lays down the categories and levels of such fees.

(2)

Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 297/95 lays down that the Commission shall review the fees of the Agency by reference to the inflation rate and update them.

(3)

Since 2005, the fees of the Agency have not been adjusted to the inflation rate. It is therefore necessary to review those fees by reference to the inflation rate in the Community in the years 2006 and 2007.

(4)

The inflation rate in the Community, as published by the Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat), was 2,2 % in 2006 and 2,3 % in 2007.

(5)

For the sake of simplicity, the adjusted levels of the fees should be rounded to the nearest EUR 100.

(6)

Regulation (EC) No 297/95 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

For reasons for legal certainty this Regulation should not apply to valid applications which are pending on 1 April 2008.

(8)

Pursuant to Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 297/95 the update has to be made with effect from 1 April 2008, it is therefore appropriate that this Regulation enter into force as a matter of urgency and apply from that date,

COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 313/2008

of 3 April 2008

derogating from Regulation (EC) No 1445/95 as regards import requirements for bovine meat from Brazil

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1254/1999 of 17 May 1999 on the common organisation of the market in beef and veal (1), and in particular Article 32(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 3 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1445/95 of 26 June 1995 on rules of application for import and export licences in the beef and veal sector (2) provides that import licences are valid 90 days from their date of issue.

(2)

Commission Decision 2008/61/EC of 17 January 2008 amending Annex II to Council Decision 79/542/EEC as regards the imports of bovine fresh meat from Brazil (3) has modified the import requirements for bovine meat from Brazil. That Decision provides that it is only possible to allow imports to continue on a secure basis by strengthening the control and surveillance of holdings from which animals eligible for export to the Community are sourced and by establishing a provisional list of such approved holdings drawn up by Brazil for which certain guarantees are provided.

In recent years Brazil has been the main supplier of beef on the Community market, accounting for around two-thirds of the total Community imports in the beef sector. As a result of the application of Decision 2008/61/EC, operators that had obtained, prior to the entry into force of that Decision, import licences for the importation of bovine meat within the import tariff quotas referred to in Article 2(d) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 936/97 of 27 May 1997 opening and providing for the administration of tariff quotas for high-quality fresh, chilled and frozen beef and frozen buffalo meat (4), Commission Regulation (EC) No 529/2007 of 11 May 2007 opening and providing for the administration of a tariff quota for frozen meat of bovine animals covered by CN code 0202 and products covered by CN code 0206 29 91 (1 July 2007 to 30 June 2008) (5) and Commission Regulation (EC) No 545/2007 of 16 May 2007 opening and providing for the administration of an import tariff quota for frozen beef intended for processing (1 July 2007 to 30 June 2008) (6), are faced with certain practical difficulties to source the products within the normal period of the validity of the import licences. In view of these particular circumstances, the validity of the licences should, on a temporary basis, be extended until the end of the import tariff quota period.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for Beef and Veal,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

By way of derogation from Article 3 of Regulation (EC) No 1445/95, for the import tariff quota period from 1 July 2007 to 30 June 2008, the licences issued in accordance with Article 2(d) of Regulation (EC) No 936/97, Regulation (EC) No 529/2007 and Regulation (EC) No 545/2007 shall be valid until 30 June 2008.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following that of 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 DIRECTIVE 2008/42/EC

of 3 April 2008

amending Council Directive 76/768/EEC, concerning cosmetic products, for the purpose of adapting Annexes II and III thereto to technical progress

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 76/768/EEC of 27 July 1976 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to cosmetic products (1), and in particular Article 8(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

On the basis of the IFRA (International Fragrance Association) Code of Practice, the Scientific Committee on Consumer Products (SCCP) (2), identified substances used as fragrance compounds in cosmetic products for which some restrictions should be provided.

(2)

Considering that whatever the function of these substances in cosmetic products is, it is the exposure to these substances which should be considered. Therefore, the restrictions should not be limited to the use of the identified substances as fragrance compounds in cosmetic products.

(3)

However, sensitisation would not exist when the substance is used in oral products. Therefore, in order to ensure consistency, as some of these substances are authorised as flavouring substances by Commission Decision 1999/217/EC of 23 February 1999 adopting a register of flavouring substances used in or on foodstuffs drawn up in application of Regulation (EC) No 2232/96 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 28 October 1996 (3), these restrictions should not apply to substances listed under this register.

(4)

In the light of the opinions of the SCCP, it is necessary to amend the restrictions related to the identified substances which are already listed in Annex III to Directive 76/768/EEC under entries 45, 72, 73, 88 and 89. Furthermore, it is appropriate to include in that Annex those identified substances which are not yet listed with their respective restrictions, as well as, for consistency, substances belonging to the same family identified in Commission Decision 96/335/EC of 8 May 1996 establishing an inventory and a common nomenclature of ingredients employed in cosmetic products (4).

(5)

Benzyl alcohol being listed twice in Annex III part 1, under reference numbers 45 and 68, the content of entry 68 as well as the new restrictions should be included in entry 45.

(6)

Following clarification by the SCCP regarding Peru balsam, entry 1136 of Annex II should be amended.

(7)

Directive 76/768/EEC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(8)

In order to ensure a smooth progression from the existing formulae of cosmetic products to formulae which comply with the requirements laid down in this Directive, it is necessary to provide for appropriate transitional periods.

(9)

The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Cosmetic Products,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

Annexes II and III of Directive 76/768/EEC are amended in accordance with the Annex to this Directive.

Article 2

Member States shall take all necessary measures to ensure that products which fail to comply with this Directive are not sold or disposed of to the final consumer after 4 October 2009.

Article 3

1.   Member States shall adopt and publish, by 4 October 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 4 April 2009.

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 its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Article 5

This Directive is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 3 April 2008.

ANNEX

Working programme for 2008 on training tools in the field of food safety, animal health, animal welfare and plant health

TRAINING

(1)   Budget lines: 17 04 07 01 and 17 04 04 01

Legal basis:

Regulation (EC) No 882/2004, Article 51 and Article 66(1)(b),

Directive 2000/29/EC, particular Article 2(1)(i).

The action to be financed under this budget aims at the development, organisation and delivery of training courses and workshops or seminars in the Community and in third countries in order to ensure that personnel performing official controls are adequately trained. Through these training courses and seminars, government officials, national authorities and laboratory experts, shall be informed about and trained on Community feed and food legislation and the control requirements for feed and food to be allowed on the Community markets.

The Commission contributes to the training of officials in the Member States in that it supplements the training received at national level with training in aspects that are relevant from a Community point of view.

For 2008, training actions will concern the following subjects:

food and feed control procedures based on HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) principles; audit techniques to verify implementation of HACCP systems,

veterinary and food safety control checks in Border Inspection Posts (airports, seaports and roads/rail),

food Hygiene and Control: fish, meat and dairy products,

prevention, control and eradication of Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies,

plant Health Controls (EC plant quarantine regime for potatoes, EC internal plant quarantine regime, EC plant quarantine regime for imports),

plant Protection Products (food and feed safety aspects): evaluation and registration,

zoonoses and microbiological criteria in foodstuffs,

animal Welfare: stunning and killing of animals at slaughterhouses and in disease control situation and animal welfare during transport,

food law, feed law, animal health and animal welfare and plant health rules (EUR 8 800 000).

Financing: through public procurement.

The global budgetary envelope reserved for the procurements during the year amounts to EUR 8 800 000.

For each of the technical issues mentioned above one or more specific service contracts will be signed. It is estimated to sign around 14 service contracts. External contractors are mainly involved in the organisational and logistical aspects of the training activities.

The aim is to launch the procurement procedure as soon as possible (approximately between March and May) to have the contracts signed during 2008.

(2)   Budget line: 17 01 04 05

Legal basis:

Regulation (EC) No 882/2004, Article 66(1)(c).

The action to be financed under this budget aims at obtaining feedback on the trainings. Feedback is one of the key elements in the domain of better training for safer food. The production of a report on the 2007 activities is part of this.

Feedback on trainings will be gathered also through an ex-post evaluation. Forms/questionnaires for this purpose will be distributed to a cross section of participants after their attendance at a training event in order to gauge the impact of the training on their professional lives.

Finally, to better arrange the training programmes, IT equipment and tools, as well as promotional material, information and communication supports need to be financed (EUR 308 000).

Financing: existing framework contracts

It is estimated to sign around four service contracts.

Indicative timeframe for signing the contracts: between March and July.
