(2)  The scientific name of the items listed in the column “Examples of individual products within the groups to which the MRLs apply”, where possible and relevant, is mentioned. As much as possible the International System of Nomenclature is followed.

(3)  The word “others” covers anything not explicitly mentioned under the rest of the codes within “Groups to which the MRLs apply”.

(4)  MRLs in Annex II and III for the product apply only for the product when used for human consumption. For parts of the product used exclusively as ingredients for animal feed, separate MRLs will be applicable.

(5)  Where the pesticide and/or metabolites (included in the residue definition) is/are water soluble (log Pow less than 3) the MRL is expressed as mg/kg of meat (including fat), preparations of meat, offal and animal fats. Where the pesticide and/or metabolite (included in the residue definition) is/are fat soluble (log Pow greater than or equal to 3) the MRL is expressed as mg/kg of fat contained in the meat, preparations of meat, offal and animal fats. In the case of foodstuffs with a fat content of 10 % or less by weight, the residue is related to the total weight of the boned foodstuff. In such cases, the maximum level is one-tenth of the value related to fat content, but must be no less than 0,01 mg/kg. The latter does not apply when the MRL is set at the LOD.

(6)  Where the pesticide and/or metabolites (included in the residue definition) is/are water soluble (log Pow less than 3) the MRL is expressed as mg/kg of milk and milk products. Where the pesticide and/or metabolite (included in the residue definition) is/are fat soluble (log Pow greater than or equal to 3) the MRL is expressed as mg/kg of cow’s milk and whole cream cow’s milk. In determining the residues in raw cow’s milk and whole cream cow’s milk, a fat content of 4 % by weight should be taken as a basis. For raw milk and whole cream milk of another animal origin the residues are expressed on the basis of the fat. For the other foodstuffs listed with a fat content of less than 2 % by weight, the maximum level is taken as half that set for raw milk and whole cream milk, with a fat content of 2 % or more by weight, the maximum level is expressed in mg/kg of fat. In such cases, the maximum level is 25 times that set for raw milk and whole cream milk. The latter does not apply when the MRL is set at the LOD.

(7)  Where the pesticide and/or metabolites (included in the residue definition) is/are water soluble (log Pow less than 3) the MRL is expressed as mg/kg of shelled fresh eggs, for bird’s eggs and egg yolks; Where the pesticide/or metabolite (included in the residue definition) is/are fat soluble (log Pow greater than or equal to 3) the MRL is also expressed as mg/kg of shelled fresh eggs, for bird’s eggs and egg yolks. However, for eggs and egg products with a fat content higher than 10 %, the maximum level is expressed in mg/kg fat. In this case, the maximum level is 10 times higher than the maximum level for fresh eggs. The latter does not apply when the MRL is set at the LOD.

(8)  MRLs not applicable until the individual products are identified and listed.’

COMMISSION DECISION

of 7 July 2010

amending Decision 2008/840/EC as regards emergency measures to prevent the introduction into the Union of Anoplophora chinensis (Forster)

(notified under document C(2010) 4546)

(2010/380/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Directive 2000/29/EC of 8 May 2000 on protective measures against the introduction into the Community of organisms harmful to plants or plant products and against their spread within the Community (1), and in particular the fourth sentence of Article 16(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Decision 2008/840/EC of 7 November 2008 on emergency measures to prevent the introduction into and the spread within the Community of Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) (2) requires Member States to adopt measures to prevent the introduction and spread within the Union of Anoplophora chinensis (Forster).

(2)

A mission carried out by the Commission in China from 9 to 20 February 2009 showed that the application of the emergency measures provided for by Decision 2008/840/EC was not fully satisfactory as regards the production and supervision of plants falling within the scope of that Decision, hereinafter ‘specified plants’.

(3)

The Commission contacted China on 3 July 2009 explaining the conclusions drawn on the basis of that mission.

(4)

On 29 September 2009, China presented a series of measures which would improve the control of Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) as regards the production of specified plants destined for export to the Union. In particular, China has conducted a procedure of registration of the places of production for exports to the Union. It has restricted the number of places of production from which specified plants may be exported to the Union to places of production that had been registered by its national plant protection organisation as in compliance with point (1)(b) of Section I(B) of Annex I to Decision 2008/840/EC, as amended. This register was notified to the Commission on the same day. China further announced the adoption of measures in case Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) would be found at one of the registered places of production, including the removal of the place of production concerned from the register under certain circumstances. The Commission communicated the information received from China to the Member States.

(5)

On 23 December 2009, the Commission informed China of its expectations that findings of Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) must lead to an automatic removal of the place of production concerned from the register.

(6)

No more findings concerning specified plants imported from China were reported until end of February 2010. However, the Netherlands reported on 1 and 3 March 2010 findings of Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) on specified plants originating from two places of production included in the register.

(7)

On 25 March 2010, China communicated to the Commission that it has undertaken to keep the register that it communicated to the Commission on 29 September 2009 up-to-date by, inter alia, promptly removing from the register the two mentioned places of production and to make the updated versions of the register available to the Commission.

(8)

It is necessary to adapt the measures provided for by Decision 2008/840/EC as regards imports of specified plants from China to take into account these developments.

(9)

As most of the interceptions on specified plants imported from China have been reported on plants of the species Acer spp., it is appropriate to ban their import for two years taking into account the life cycle of the insect.

(10)

In addition to the requirements applicable to specified plants imported from third countries where Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) is present, specified plants originating in China should only be imported if they come from a place of production which is listed in the register of places of production in China established by the Chinese national plant protection organisation. Member States should be kept informed by the Commission of any update to this register by the Chinese authorities. Where a place of production is removed from the register by the Chinese authorities, specified plants grown at that place of production should not be imported into the Union for two years from the date when the Commission informs the Member States of that update.

(11)

Where the Commission has evidence that a place of production listed in the register no longer complies with point (1)(b) of Section I(B) of Annex I to Decision 2008/840/EC or that Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) has been found on specified plants imported from such a place of production, it should communicate that information to the Member States. Following that communication specified plants originating from that place of production should not be imported into the Union for two years from the date when the Commission informs the Member States of the non-compliance, irrespective of the action taken by China to update the register.

(12)

It is necessary that a place of production situated in a pest free area in a third country, as referred to in point (1)(a) of Section I of Annex I to Decision 2008/840/EC as it stands, be registered and supervised by the national plant protection organisation of that country.

(13)

Taking into account the results of recent inspections of specified plants, carried out at the point of entry or at the place of destination, in accordance with point (2) of Section I of Annex I to Decision 2008/840/EC as it stands, it is also necessary that destructive sampling be part of the inspection in third countries immediately prior to export and of the inspection in accordance with the provisions referred to.

(14)

Decision 2008/840/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(15)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plant Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

1.   Article 2 of Decision 2008/840/EC is replaced by the following:

‘Article 2

Import of the specified plants from third countries except China

As regards imports from third countries where Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) is known to be present, other than China, specified plants may only be introduced into the Union if they fulfil the following conditions:

(a)

they comply with the specific import requirements as set out in point (1) of Section I(A) of Annex I;

(b)

without prejudice to Article 13a(1) of Directive 2000/29/EC, on entry into the Union they are inspected by the responsible official body in accordance with point (2) of Section I(A) of Annex I to this Decision for the presence of Anoplophora chinensis (Forster), and no signs of that organism have been found.

Article 2a

Import of the specified plants from China

1.1.   As regards imports from China, specified plants may only be introduced into the Union if they fulfil the following conditions:

(a)

they comply with the specific import requirements as set out in point (1) of Section I(B) of Annex I;

(b)

without prejudice to Article 13a(1) of Directive 2000/29/EC, on entry into the Union they are inspected by the responsible official body in accordance with point (2) of Section I(B) of Annex I to this Decision for the presence of Anoplophora chinensis (Forster), and no signs of that organism have been found;

(c)

the place of production of those plants:

(i)

is designated by a unique registration number assigned by the national plant protection organisation of China;

(ii)

is included in the most recent version of the register communicated by the Commission to the Member States in accordance with paragraph 3;

(iii)

has not, within the previous two years, been the subject of a communication by the Commission to the Member States of the removal from the register in accordance with paragraph 3; and

(iv)

has not, within the previous two years, been the subject of a communication by the Commission to the Member States as referred to in paragraph 4 or 5.

2.   However, plants of Acer spp. shall not be introduced into the Union until 30 April 2012.

From 1 May 2012, paragraph 1 shall apply to plants of Acer spp.

3.   The Commission shall communicate to the Member States the register of places of production in China which its national plant protection organisation has established as in compliance with point (1)(b) of Section I(B) of Annex I.

Where that organisation updates the register by removing a place of production either because that organisation has found that the place of production no longer complies with point (1)(b) of Section I(B) of Annex I or because the Commission has informed China of evidence of the presence of Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) at import of specified plants from one of those places of production, and China makes the updated version of the register available to the Commission, the Commission shall communicate the updated version of the register to the Member States through internet based information pages.

Where that organisation updates the register by including a place of production because that organisation has found that the place of production complies with point (1)(b) of Section I(B) of Annex I and China makes the updated version of the register available to the Commission as well as the necessary explanatory information, the Commission shall communicate that updated version and, where appropriate, that explanatory information to the Member States through internet based information pages.

Through internet based information pages, the Commission shall make the register and its updates available to the public.

4.   Where during an inspection at a registered place of production, as set out in points (ii), (iii) and (iv) of point (1)(b) of Section I(B) of Annex I, the Chinese plant protection organisation finds evidence of the presence of Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) and the Commission is notified of that finding by China, the Commission shall immediately communicate that finding to the Member States through internet based information pages.

Through internet based information pages, the Commission shall also make this information available to the public.

5.   Where the Commission has evidence from sources other than those referred to in paragraphs 3 and 4 that a place of production listed in the register does not comply with point (1)(b) of Section I(B) of Annex I or that Anoplophora chinensis (Forster) has been found on specified plants imported from such a place of production, it shall communicate the information concerning that place of production to the Member States through internet based information pages.

Through internet based information pages, the Commission shall also make this information available to the public.’

COMMISSION DECISION

of 8 July 2010

on emergency measures applicable to consignments of aquaculture products imported from India and intended for human consumption

(notified under document C(2010) 4563)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2010/381/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 28 January 2002 laying down the general principles and requirements of food law, establishing the European Food Safety Authority and laying down procedures in matters of food safety (1), and in particular Article 53(1)(b)(ii) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 lays down the general principles governing food and feed in general, and food and feed safety in particular, at Union and national level. It provides for emergency measures where it is evident that food or feed imported from a third country is likely to constitute a serious risk to human health, animal health or the environment, and that such risk cannot be contained satisfactorily by means of measures taken by the Member State(s) concerned.

(2)

Council Directive 96/23/EC of 29 April 1996 on measures to monitor certain substances and residues thereof in live animals and animal products (2) provides that the production process of animals and primary products of animal origin is to be monitored for the purpose of detecting the presence of certain residues and substances in live animals, their excrements and body fluids and in tissue, animal products, animal feed and drinking water.

(3)

Commission Decision 2002/657/EC of 12 August 2002 implementing Council Directive 96/23/EC concerning the performance of analytical methods and the interpretation of results (3) provides rules for the analytical methods to be used in the testing of official samples taken pursuant to Directive 96/23/EC and specifies common criteria for the interpretation of analytical results of official control laboratories for such samples.

(4)

Regulation (EC) No 470/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 May 2009 laying down Community procedures for the establishment of residue limits of pharmacologically active substances in foodstuffs of animal origin (4) lays down rules and procedures for the classification of pharmacologically active substances and for establishing the maximum concentration of residues of such substances which may be permitted in food of animal origin.

(5)

In addition, Regulation (EC) No 470/2009 lays down rules and procedures in order to establish the level of residues of a pharmacologically active substance for control reasons in the case of certain substances for which a maximum residue limit has not been laid down in accordance with that Regulation.

(6)

The results of a Commission inspection to India in September 2009 have revealed shortcomings as regards the residue control system in aquaculture products and a lack of appropriate laboratory capacity for detecting certain pharmacologically active substances in such products, as required by Directive 96/23/EC and by Decision 2002/657/EC.

(7)

Following that inspection, India has submitted an action plan and guarantees addressing the recommendations in the inspection report. Pending the full implementation of that plan and of those guarantees, the risk remains that aquaculture products originating from India contain residues of certain pharmacologically active substances. Further measures are therefore required at Union level to minimise that risk.

(8)

Commission Decision 2009/727/EC of 30 September 2009 on emergency measures applicable to crustaceans imported from India and intended for human consumption or animal feed (5) already provides that consignments of crustaceans of aquaculture origin introduced from India and intended for human consumption or animal feed are to be tested for the presence of nitrofurans or their metabolites before they are imported into the Union. In addition, in aquaculture products other than crustaceans, chloramphenicol and tetracyclines are also known to be used in India.

(9)

Since the adoption of Decision 2009/727/EC, the number of positive findings of nitrofurans or their metabolites in crustaceans reported by the Member States has decreased. Therefore, it is appropriate to adopt measures similar to those laid down in that Decision in respect of all aquaculture products imported from India and intended for human consumption.

(10)

In addition a significant proportion of the aquaculture products imported from India should undergo mandatory testing by the Member States for the detection of pharmacology active substances as defined in Regulation (EC) No 470/2009 before those products are placed on the market. The results of that mandatory testing should provide more accurate information on the actual contamination of aquaculture products originating from India with those residues. The testing should also deter producers in India from misusing those substances.

(11)

It is appropriate that Member States notify the Commission of the results of the tests performed, where the presence of the concerned pharmacologically active substances not authorised for use in food producing animals, or exceeding the maximum residue limits laid down in Union law, is revealed. Member States should also regularly submit reports on all the tests carried out by them.

(12)

The scope of this Decision also includes crustaceans of aquaculture origin currently covered by Decision 2009/727/EC. Accordingly, in the interest of clarity and consistency of Union legislation, that Decision should be repealed.

(13)

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

This Decision shall apply to the importation of consignments of aquaculture products from India intended for human consumption (‘consignments’).

Article 2

1.   Member States shall authorise the importation into the Union of consignments provided that they are accompanied by the results of an analytical test carried out at the place of origin to ensure that they do not present a danger to human health.

The analytical test must have been carried out on an official sample, in particular with a view to detecting the presence of chloramphenicol, tetracycline, oxytetracycline and chlortetracycline and of metabolites of nitrofurans.

Those samples must have been analysed using analytical methods in conformity with Articles 3 and 4 of Decision 2002/657/EC.

2.   By way of derogation from paragraph 1, Member States shall authorise the importation of consignments that are not accompanied by the results of an analytical test provided that the importing Member State ensures that each consignment undergoes such analytical tests for the detection of chloramphenicol, tetracycline, oxytetracycline, chlortetracycline and of metabolites of nitrofurans on arrival.

Article 3

1.   Member States shall, by using appropriate sampling plans, ensure that official samples are taken from at least 20 % of consignments presented for import at border inspection posts on their territory.

2.   The official samples taken pursuant to paragraph 1 shall undergo analytical tests for the detection of residues of pharmacologically active substances as defined in Article 2(a) of Regulation (EC) No 470/2009, and in particular of chloramphenicol, tetracycline, oxytetracycline, chlortetracycline and of metabolites of nitrofurans.

Article 4

The consignments from which official samples have been taken pursuant to Articles 2(2) and 3(1) shall be kept under official detention by the competent authority of the Member State concerned, until the analytical tests have been completed.

Those consignments may be placed on the market only if the results of the analytical tests confirm that they comply with Regulation (EC) No 470/2009.

Article 5

1.   Member States shall immediately inform the Commission of the results of the analytical tests if those tests reveal the presence of residues of any pharmacologically active substance:

(a)

classified in accordance with Article 14(2)(a), (b) or (c) of Regulation (EC) No 470/2009 at a level exceeding the maximum residue limit established pursuant to that Regulation; or

(b)

not classified in accordance with Article 14(2)(a), (b) or (c) of Regulation (EC) No 470/2009; however, the Member State concerned is not required to immediately inform the Commission of the results of such tests where the level of residues is lower than:

(i)

the reference point for action established for that substance pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 470/2009; or

(ii)

the minimum required performance limit established for that substance pursuant to Decision 2002/657/EC.

The results of those analytical tests shall be notified to the Commission under the rapid alert system established pursuant to Article 50 of Regulation (EC) No 178/2002.

2.   Every three months Member States shall submit to the Commission a report on all the results of the analytical tests carried out on the consignments in the previous three months.

The first report shall be submitted to the Commission by 1 October 2010.

Article 6

All expenditure incurred in the application of this Decision shall be charged to the consignor, the consignee or the agent of either the consignor or the consignee.

Article 7

Decision 2009/727/EC is repealed.

Article 8

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 8 July 2010.
