COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 724/2010

of 12 August 2010

laying down detailed rules for the implementation of real-time closures of certain fisheries in the North Sea and Skagerrak

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 of 20 November 2009 establishing a Community control system for ensuring compliance with the rules of the common fisheries policy, amending Regulations (EC) No 847/96, (EC) No 2371/2002, (EC) No 811/2004, (EC) No 768/2005, (EC) No 2115/2005, (EC) No 2166/2005, (EC) No 388/2006, (EC) No 509/2007, (EC) No 676/2007, (EC) No 1098/2007, (EC) No 1300/2008, (EC) No 1342/2008 and repealing Regulations (EEC) No 2847/93, (EC) No 1627/94 and (EC) No 1966/2006 (1), and in particular 51(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Articles 51, 52 and 53 of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 establish rules and procedures regarding the adoption of real-time closures by Member States. According to those provisions, Member States shall temporarily close the fishery in a certain area if a trigger catch level of a particular species, or group of species, has been reached.

(2)

The Agreed Record of the Conclusions between the European Union and Norway of 3 July 2009 lays down the procedures and sampling methodology for the adoption of real-time closures in the North Sea and Skagerrak. Those provisions were transposed into Union law by way of Council Regulation (EC) No 753/2009 (2), amending Regulation (EC) No 43/2009 and fixing for 2009 the fishing opportunities and associated conditions for certain fish stocks.

(3)

Those provisions thus introduced in Regulation (EC) No 43/2009 applied to cod, haddock, saithe and whiting caught by any fishing gear other than pelagic trawls, purse seines, driftnets and jiggers targeting herring, mackerel and horse mackerel, and pots, scallop dredges and gillnets. In addition, they specified, inter alia, the obligations of the coastal Member States regarding the decisions on real-time closures and the information to be provided to other Member States and/or third countries concerned and the Commission.

(4)

Considering that the concerned provisions ceased to apply as from 1 January 2010, it is necessary to provide for the transposition of the Agreed Record by way of detailed rules implementing Articles 51, 52 and 53 of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 in the North Sea and Skagerrak.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Catch trigger level

1.   The catch level which shall trigger real-time closures of fisheries, as referred to in Article 51 of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009, shall be 15 % by weight of juveniles as compared to the total of the four species referred to in Article 2, in a haul.

2.   However, if the quantity of cod in the sample exceeds 75 % as compared to the total of the four species in a haul, the catch trigger level shall be 10 % by weight of juveniles as compared to the total of the four species in a haul.

Article 5

Definition of juveniles

For the purpose of this Regulation, ‘juveniles’ means:

specimens of cod smaller than 35 cm,

specimens of haddock smaller than 30 cm,

specimens of saithe smaller than 35 cm,

Article 6

Calculation of the catch level of juveniles

1.   For the purpose of calculating the catch level of juveniles in accordance with Article 51(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009, the coastal Member State and/or the Member State participating in a joint operation under a Joint Deployment Plan shall identify areas where there is a risk of reaching the trigger level.

2.   In the areas identified in accordance with paragraph 1, the coastal Member State and/or the Member State participating in a joint operation under a Joint Deployment Plan shall carry out inspections to measure whether the percentage of juveniles reaches the trigger level, including through Joint Deployment Plans.

3.   When carrying out the inspections referred to in paragraph 2, the coastal Member State and/or the Member State participating in a joint operation under a Joint Deployment Plan shall:

(a)

take and measure samples of cod, haddock, saithe and whiting from a haul in accordance with provisions in Annex I;

(b)

document each sampling by completing a sampling report as set out in Annex II and send it to the coastal State.

4.   Member States may invite other countries undertaking inspections in the area concerned to carry out samples on their behalf.

5.   The coastal Member State concerned shall publish without delay on its website the position at which the sample referred to in paragraph 3(a) was taken, the time it was taken and the quantity of juveniles as a percentage of the total catch of cod, haddock, saithe and whiting in weight. The percentage shall be published both by species and as a total of the four species.

Article 7

Closure of fisheries

1.   When a sample referred to in Article 6(3)(a) shows a percentage of juveniles that reaches the trigger level, the coastal Member State concerned shall prohibit fishing in the area concerned with any fishing gear other than:

COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 726/2010

of 12 August 2010

amending Regulation (EC) No 917/2004 on detailed rules to implement Council Regulation (EC) No 797/2004 on measures improving general conditions for the production and marketing of apiculture products

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 of 22 October 2007 establishing a common organisation of agricultural markets and on specific provisions for certain agricultural products (Single CMO Regulation) (1), and in particular Article 110 in conjunction with Article 4 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 917/2004 (2) lays down provisions for the implementation of the national apiculture programmes provided for in Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007. The Community’s financial contribution to those programmes is based on the bee census in each Member State as set out in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 917/2004.

(2)

In the Member States’ communications updating the structural data on the situation in the sector as provided for in Article 1(a) of Regulation (EC) No 917/2004, there have been changes in the number of hives.

(3)

Regulation (EC) No 917/2004 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(4)

Given that Article 2(3) of Regulation (EC) No 917/2004 fixes 31 August as the final date for implementation of measures under the apiculture programmes for the year to which those measures relate, this Regulation should apply from the 2010/2011 marketing year.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for the Common Organisation for Agricultural Markets,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 727/2010

of 6 August 2010

concerning the classification of certain goods in the Combined Nomenclature

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 of 23 July 1987 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff (1), and in particular Article 9(1)(a) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In order to ensure uniform application of the Combined Nomenclature annexed to Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87, it is necessary to adopt measures concerning the classification of the goods referred to in the Annex to this Regulation.

(2)

Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 has laid down the general rules for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature. Those rules apply also to any other nomenclature which is wholly or partly based on it or which adds any additional subdivision to it and which is established by specific provisions of the Union, with a view to the application of tariff and other measures relating to trade in goods.

(3)

Pursuant to those general rules, the goods described in column 1 of the table set out in the Annex should be classified under the CN code indicated in column 2, by virtue of the reasons set out in column 3 of that table.

(4)

It is appropriate to provide that binding tariff information which has been issued by the customs authorities of Member States in respect of the classification of goods in the Combined Nomenclature but which is not in accordance with this Regulation can, for a period of three months, continue to be invoked by the holder, under Article 12(6) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92 of 12 October 1992 establishing the Community Customs Code (2).

(5)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Customs Code Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The goods described in column 1 of the table set out in the Annex shall be classified within the Combined Nomenclature under the CN code indicated in column 2 of that table.

Article 2

Binding tariff information issued by the customs authorities of Member States, which is not in accordance with this Regulation, can continue to be invoked for a period of three months under Article 12(6) of Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92.

Article 3

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.

Description of the goods

Classification

(CN code)

Reasons

(1)

(2)

(3)

An electrical extension cord comprising:

an electrical cable of a length of approximately 2 m,

a plug for connecting to an electrical power mains socket, and

a plastic housing with 5 sockets, a power switch and a fuse.

The product is designed to be used for the transport of electrical power of 220 V within a local area (for example, a room) to various apparatus.

The switch disconnects the electrical power and the fuse protects against overloads.

 (1) See image

8544 42 90

Classification is determined by General Rules 1 and 6 for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature, Note 3 to Section XVI and by the wording of CN codes 8544, 8544 42 and 8544 42 90.

The functions provided by the switch and by the fuse are considered to be secondary as the principal function of the product is to transport electrical power by means of a cable fitted with connectors.

Classification under heading 8536 as a connector is excluded as heading 8544 covers cables, whether or not fitted with connectors (see also the Harmonised System Explanatory Notes to heading 8536 (III)(A), final paragraph, and to heading 8544).

The product is therefore to be classified under CN code 8544 42 90 as other electrical conductors fitted with connectors.

COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 2010/52/EU

of 11 August 2010

amending, for the purposes of adaptation of their technical provisions, Council Directive 76/763/EEC relating to passenger seats for wheeled agricultural or forestry tractors and Directive 2009/144/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on certain components and characteristics of wheeled agricultural or forestry tractors

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Directive 2003/37/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 May 2003 on type-approval of agricultural or forestry tractors, their trailers and interchangeable towed machinery, together with their systems, components and separate technical units and repealing Directive 74/150/EEC (1), and in particular Article 19(1)(b) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Council Directive 76/763/EEC of 27 July 1976 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to passenger seats for wheeled agricultural or forestry tractors (2) and Directive 2009/144/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 November 2009 on certain components and characteristics of wheeled agricultural or forestry tractors (3) are two of the separate Directives in the context of the EC type-approval procedure for agricultural or forestry tractors under Directive 2003/37/EC.

(2)

Safety is one of the main pillars on which Directive 2003/37/EC is based. In order to enhance the protection of operators it is appropriate to complete the requirements applicable under that Directive in order to cover all hazards listed in Annex I to Directive 2006/42/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (4) relating to machinery, not yet covered by the separate Directives under Directive 2003/37/EC.

(3)

With this amendment, Directive 2006/42/EC will no longer apply to tractors type-approved on the basis of the type-approval legislation for wheeled agricultural and forestry tractors, since with the implementation of this amending Directive the risks covered by Directive 2003/37/EC will comprise all risks covered by Directive 2006/42/EC.

(4)

The European Committee for Standardisation CEN has formulated harmonised standards on roll-over protection for passengers and against hazardous substances. Those standards have been adopted and published and should therefore be incorporated in this Directive.

(5)

Directive 76/763/EEC imposes requirements with regard to the design and installation of passenger seats on agricultural tractors; it is appropriate to amend that Directive in order to increase this protection by including additional technical specifications providing protection covering the risks of passenger injury as described in Directive 2006/42/EC, in particular regarding roll-over and seatbelt anchorage for passenger seats.

(6)

Directive 2009/144/EC imposes technical requirements relating to certain components and characteristics of wheeled agricultural tractors; it is appropriate to amend that Directive in order to increase this protection by including additional technical specifications providing protection against falling objects, against penetration of objects into the cabin and against hazardous substances; furthermore the minimum requirements for the operator’s manual should be set.

(7)

In order to achieve the smooth running of the type-approval process and in particular to enhance occupational safety, a minimum content for the operator’s manual should be defined. This will ensure that operators have the necessary information to assess the adequacy of tractors to their intended uses, as well as for carrying out an appropriate maintenance.

(8)

Provisions for Falling Objects Protective Structures, if provided, Operators Protection Structures, if provided, and for the prevention of contact with hazardous substances should be required according to the state of the art.

(9)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

Directive 76/763/EEC is amended in accordance with Annex I to this Directive.

Article 2

Directive 2009/144/EC is amended in accordance with Annex II to this Directive.

(a)

refuse to grant EC type-approval or to grant national type-approval; or

(b)

prohibit the registration, sale or entry into service of such a vehicle.

2.   With effect from 1 year after the date of entry into force, with respect to new types of vehicles which do not comply with the requirements laid down in Directive 76/763/EEC and Directive 2009/144/EC as amended by this Directive, and on grounds relating to the subject matter of these Directives, Member States:

(a)

shall refuse to grant EC type-approval; and

(b)

may refuse to grant national type-approval.

3.   With effect from 2 years after the date of entry into force, with respect to new vehicles which do not comply with the requirements laid down in Directive 76/763/EEC and Directive 2009/144/EC as amended by this Directive, and on grounds relating to the subject matter of these Directives, Member States:

(a)

shall consider certificates of conformity which accompany new vehicles in accordance with Directive 2003/37/EC to be no longer valid for the purposes of Article 7(1) of Directive 2003/37/EC; and

(b)

may refuse the registration, sale or entry into service of those vehicles.

Article 4

1.   Member States shall adopt and publish, by 1 March 2011 at the latest, the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive. They shall forthwith communicate to the Commission the texts of those provisions.

They shall apply those provisions from 2 March 2011.

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 5

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

(notified under document C(2010) 5278)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2010/453/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Directive 2004/23/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 31 March 2004 on setting standards of quality and safety for the donation, procurement, testing, processing, preservation, storage and distribution of human tissues and cells (1), and in particular Article 7(5) thereof,

Whereas:

Done at Brussels, 3 August 2010.

For the Commission

John DALLI

Member of the Commission


(1)  OJ L 102, 7.4.2004, p. 48.


ANNEX

GUIDELINES CONCERNING INSPECTIONS AND CONTROL MEASURES, AND ON THE TRAINING AND QUALIFICATION OF OFFICIALS, IN THE FIELD OF HUMAN TISSUES AND CELLS

1.   Purpose of the guidelines

The purpose of these guidelines is to provide guidance to the Member States towards a consistent level of competence and performance of inspections in the field of tissues and cells.

2.   Responsibilities of the inspectors

The inspector should be clearly mandated in writing by the competent authority for the specific task and should have an official identification. The inspector should gather detailed information to be provided to the competent authority in line with the specific mandate of the inspection.

An inspection is a sampling exercise as inspectors cannot examine all areas and documentation during an inspection. An inspector should not be held responsible for deficiencies that could not be observed during the inspection due to limited time or scope or because certain processes could not be observed taking place during the inspection.

3.   Qualifications of inspectors

Inspectors should at least:

(a)

possess a diploma, certificate or other evidence of formal qualifications in the field of medical or biological sciences, awarded on completion of a university course of study or a course recognised as equivalent by the Member State concerned;

and

(b)

have practical experience in the relevant areas of operations within a tissue, cell or blood establishment. Other prior experiences may also be considered as relevant.

The competent authorities may consider in exceptional cases that a person’s considerable and relevant experience may exempt him/her from the requirement set out in point (a).

4.   Training of inspectors

When taking up their duties, inspectors should receive a specific induction training. This training should at least include:

(a)

the accreditation, designation, authorisation or licensing systems in the Member State concerned;

(b)

the applicable legal framework for the performance of their activities;

(c)

the technical aspects of tissues and cells establishments activities;

(d)

the inspection techniques and procedures, including practical exercises;

(e)

International Quality Management Systems (ISO, EN);

(f)

National Health systems and tissue and cells organizational structures in the Member State concerned;

(g)

organisation of national regulatory authorities;

(h)

International Inspection instruments and other relevant bodies.

This induction training should be complemented by specialised training and by continuous in-house training as appropriate throughout the career of the inspector.

5.   Types of inspections

5.1.

Different types of inspection may be carried out:

(a)   general system-oriented inspections: should be on-site and cover all processes and activities, including: organisational structure, policies, responsibilities, quality management, personnel, documentation, data quality, systems for ensuring data protection and confidentiality, facilities, equipment, contracts, complaints and recalls or audits, information communication (within and across borders) and traceability of tissues and cells;

(b)   thematic inspections: should be on-site and cover one or more specific themes, e.g. quality management systems, preparation process, vigilance systems, or donor testing laboratory conditions;

(c)   desk based reviews: do not take place on-site but at a remote location and may cover all processes and activities or focus on one or more specific themes;

(d)   reinspections: may be indicated as follow-up or reassessment to monitor the corrective actions required during a previous inspection.

5.2.

In addition some particular inspections can be done:

(a)   third party inspections: desk-based or on-site inspections should be performed to the third parties as specified in Article 24 of Directive 2004/23/EC;

(b)   joint inspections: as result of the evaluation of specific circumstances, including limitation of resources or expertise, a Member State may consider the possibility of requesting another Union Competent Authority to carry out joint inspections on its territory in collaboration with the officials of the requesting Member State.

6.   Inspections scheduling

The competent authorities should establish a programme of inspections and identify and allocate the necessary resources.

In accordance with Article 7(3) of Directive 2004/23/EC, inspections shall be organised and control measures shall be carried out by the competent authority or authorities on a regular basis. The interval between two inspections shall not exceed two years.

It is recommended that a full on-site inspection covering all areas of activity should be performed at least every four years. During the interval between two general system inspections, a thematic inspection may be performed which focuses on a particular theme or process, or alternatively, in the absence of significant changes since the last inspection, a desk-based review may be performed.

7.   Conduct of inspections

7.1.

Where resources allow, the team should be composed of members with different competences.

Where necessary, the assistance of an external expert may be solicited for a specific inspection. This expert should only have an advisory role.

Inspections by a single inspector should, in general, be avoided. At least one of the inspectors should have a minimum of two years’ of practical experience as referred to in point 3(b).

7.2.

An inspection report should be sent after the inspection to the tissue establishment or third party inspected. The conclusions of the report should clearly identify the deficiencies observed.

A date should be defined in the report by which the tissue establishment or third party should submit proposals and a time schedule for rectifying the deficiencies outlined in the report.

Where necessary, a reinspection can be conducted to ensure the follow-up.

8.   Inspectorate quality management system

Each competent authority should have a quality management system in place comprising adequate standard operating procedures and an appropriate internal audit system. The competent authorities should regularly perform an evaluation of their inspection systems.

COMMISSION DECISION

of 12 August 2010

on the determination of surplus stocks of agricultural products other than sugar and the financial consequences of their elimination in relation to the accession of Bulgaria and Romania

(notified under document C(2010) 5524)

(Only the Romanian text is authentic)

(2010/454/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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 paragraph 4 of Chapter 3 of Annex V thereto,

Whereas:

(1)

Paragraph 2 of Chapter 3 of Annex V to the Act of Accession of Bulgaria and Romania provides that any stock of product, private as well as public, in free circulation at the date of accession within the territory of Bulgaria and Romania (the new Member States) exceeding the quantity which could be regarded as constituting a normal carry-over of stock must be eliminated at the expense of the new Member States. The concept of normal carry-over stock shall be defined for each product on the basis of criteria and objectives specific to each common market organisation.

(2)

Both the criteria and objectives particular to each market organisation and the relationship between prices in the new Member States before accession and Community prices mean that normal carry-over stock should be assessed in the light of factors varying from sector to sector.

(3)

The basis for calculating levels of surplus stocks should be the variation in domestic production plus imports less exports in 2006, compared to the average of variation in domestic production plus imports less exports for the three previous years.

(4)

The results of the calculation should be adjusted to take into consideration that some categories of products, such as butter and butter-oil, different qualities of rice, hops, seeds, wine alcohol, tobacco, and cereals are effectively interchangeable and could be considered as a group, so that an increase in stock levels of certain products in a group may be offset by a reduction in stock levels of other products in the group.

(5)

In order to take into account economic growth during the period evaluated for the surplus stock exercise and the resulting possible increase in food consumption, a linear trend function has been introduced, using the production and trade figures of 2003-2005 as a baseline. In cases where linear trend function would have resulted in a higher surplus, the average of variation in domestic production plus imports less exports for the three previous years was used.

(6)

A threshold was used to eliminate minor surpluses: if the amount of surplus stock of a particular product was no more than 10 % of what could be regarded as a ‘normal carry-over stock’ for that product, it was considered that Member States should not be charged. This 10 % covers the margin of error of the statistical information gathered in the particular circumstances of the pre-accession period and the complexity and scope of this exercise.

(7)

The Commission also invited the new Member States to present any arguments on specific situations which would justify higher than normal stocks and evaluated them. The latter did not result in changes to the figures established according to the methodology described in recitals 1 to 6.

(8)

The calculation should be based on official Eurostat data transmitted by the Member States, where this is available. In cases where such data are not available due to statistical confidentiality, data sent officially to the Commission by the new Member States should be used.

(9)

As regards Bulgaria, the mathematical application of the methodology described in recitals 1 to 6 to the statistical information referred to in recital 8 gives the result that no surplus stocks are found, without the need to consider any arguments on specific situations as described in recital 7.

(10)

For calculating the financial consequences of the surplus stocks, the cost of their disposal should be calculated. In the absence of export refunds for preserved mushrooms for which significant levels of surplus stocks have been established, for an equivalent approach, it is appropriate to take as a basis the price differences between the average internal and external prices. In view of the temporary nature of the financial consequences arising from the establishment of surplus stocks, the corresponding amounts should be paid by the Member States concerned into the Union’s budget. It is necessary to fix the date on which these payments should be made. Taking into account the current difficult economic circumstances pointed out by Romania, it has been considered appropriate to extend over four years the period for the payment of these amounts.

(11)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Management Committee for the Common Organisation of Agricultural Markets,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The quantities of agricultural products in free circulation in Bulgaria and Romania at the date of accession exceeding the quantities which could be regarded as constituting a normal carry-over of stock at 1 January 2007, and the amounts to be charged to those new Member States in consequence of the expense of elimination of those quantities are set out in the Annex.

Article 2

1.   The amounts set out in the Annex shall be considered as revenue for the Union’s budget.

2.   Romania may pay these amounts set out in the Annex to the Union’s budget in four equal instalments. The first instalment shall be paid by the last day of the second month following the month in which this Decision is notified to that new Member State. Subsequent instalments shall be paid by 31 October 2011, 31 October 2012 and 31 October 2013 respectively.

Article 3

This Decision is addressed to Romania.
