COUNCIL REGULATION (EU) 2018/76

of 23 October 2017

on the allocation of fishing opportunities under the Protocol setting out the fishing opportunities and the financial contribution provided for by the Fisheries Partnership Agreement between the European Union and the Republic of Mauritius

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 43(3) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

On 28 January 2014, the Council adopted Decision 2014/146/EU (1) on the conclusion of the Fisheries Partnership Agreement between the European Union and the Republic of Mauritius (‘the Agreement’).

(2)

The first Protocol (2) to the Agreement set out, for a period of 3 years, the fishing opportunities granted to Union vessels in the fishing zone under the sovereignty or jurisdiction of the Republic of Mauritius (‘Mauritius’) and the financial contribution granted by the Union. The period of application of that Protocol expired on 27 January 2017.

(3)

In accordance with Council Decision (EU) 2017/1960 (3), a new Protocol setting out the fishing opportunities and the financial contribution provided for by the Fisheries Partnership Agreement between the European Union and the Republic of Mauritius (‘the Protocol’) was signed on 8 December 2017.

(4)

The method for allocating the fishing opportunities among the Member States should be defined for the entire period of application of the Protocol.

(5)

Article 10(1) of Council Regulation (EC) No 1006/2008 (4) provides that the Commission is to inform the Member States concerned if it appears that the number of fishing authorisations or the amount of fishing opportunities allocated to the Union under the Protocol are not fully utilised, and request them to confirm not making use of those fishing opportunities. The absence of a reply within a set deadline is to be considered as confirmation that the vessels of the Member State concerned are not making full use of their fishing opportunities during the period in question. That deadline should be set.

(6)

The Protocol will apply on a provisional basis from its date of signature, in order to ensure an expeditious start to fishing activities of Union vessels. This Regulation should therefore also apply from that date,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

(1)   The fishing opportunities established under the Protocol shall be allocated among the Member States as follows:

(a)

tuna seiners:

Spain:

22 vessels

France:

16 vessels

Italy:

2 vessels

(b)

surface long-liners:

Spain:

12 vessels

France:

29 vessels

Portugal:

4 vessels

(2)   Regulation (EC) No 1006/2008 shall apply without prejudice to the Agreement and the Protocol.

(3)   If applications for fishing authorisations from the Member States referred to in paragraph 1 do not exhaust the fishing opportunities established by the Protocol, the Commission shall consider applications for fishing authorisations from any other Member State in accordance with Article 10 of Regulation (EC) No 1006/2008.

(4)   The deadline referred to in Article 10(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1006/2008 shall be set at 10 working days as from the date on which the Commission submits its request.

Article 2

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

It shall apply from 8 December 2017.

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

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2018/77

of 15 January 2018

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 Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 October 2013 laying down the Union Customs Code (1), and in particular Article 57(4) and Article 58(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In order to ensure uniform application of the Combined Nomenclature annexed to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 (2), 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 issued in respect of the goods concerned by this Regulation which does not conform to this Regulation may, for a certain period, continue to be invoked by the holder in accordance with Article 34(9) of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013. That period should be set at 3 months.

(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 which does not conform to this Regulation may continue to be invoked in accordance with Article 34(9) of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 for a period of 3 months from the date of entry into force of this Regulation.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth 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.

Done at Brussels, 15 January 2018.

(2)  Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 of 23 July 1987 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff (OJ L 256, 7.9.1987, p. 1).


ANNEX

Description of the goods

Classification

(CN code)

Reasons

(1)

(2)

(3)

A cuboid textile article (so-called ‘mattress cover’) made of printed woven textile fabrics of man-made fibres (100 % polyester) which is a washable fabric, of a measurement of approximately 200 × 60 × 8 cm.

The article has a zip closure along one of the long sides to enable a mattress to be inserted.

On one of the long sides a textile handle is attached.

See image (*1).

6302 22 90

Classification is determined by general rules 1 and 6 for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature and by the wording of CN codes 6302 , 6302 22 and 6302 22 90 .

The article is made of washable material and has a zip closure enabling the removal of the article from the mattress at any time, and is thus suitable for laundering (see also Harmonised System Explanatory Notes (HSEN) to heading 6302 , first paragraph). Consequently, it has the objective characteristics and properties of bedlinen.

The article is therefore to be classified under CN code 6302 22 90 as ‘bedlinen, other than knitted or crocheted, of man-made fibres’.

COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2018/78

of 16 January 2018

amending Annexes II and III to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards maximum residue levels for 2-phenylphenol, bensulfuron-methyl, dimethachlor and lufenuron in or on certain products

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 February 2005 on maximum residue levels of pesticides in or on food and feed of plant and animal origin and amending Council Directive 91/414/EEC (1), and in particular Article 14(1)(a) and Article 49(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

For 2-phenylphenol maximum residue levels (MRLs) were set in Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005. For dimethachlor and lufenuron MRLs were set in Part A of Annex III to that Regulation. For bensulfuron-methyl MRLs were not yet set before.

(2)

For 2-phenylphenol the European Food Safety Authority, hereinafter ‘the Authority’, submitted a reasoned opinion on the review of the existing MRLs in accordance with Article 12(1) of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 (2). It proposed to change the residue definition for plant products and recommended lowering the MRLs for muscle, fat, liver and kidney from swine, bovine and equine, and for milk from cattle and horse. It concluded that concerning the MRL for citrus, some information was not available and that further consideration by risk managers was required. As there is no risk for consumers, the MRL for this product should be set in Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 at the existing level or the level identified by the Authority. As regards the MRL for pears the Codex maximum residue limit is safe for consumers. It is therefore appropriate to set the MRL for pears at the same level.

(3)

For bensulfuron-methyl the Authority submitted a reasoned opinion on the existing MRLs in accordance with Article 12(1) of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 (3). It recommended raising or keeping the existing MRLs.

(4)

For dimethachlor the Authority submitted a reasoned opinion on the existing MRLs in accordance with Article 12(1) of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 (4). It recommended raising or keeping the existing MRLs.

(5)

For lufenuron the Authority submitted a reasoned opinion on the existing MRLs in accordance with Article 12(1) of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 (5). It proposed to change the residue definition for all products and recommended lowering the MRLs for citrus fruits, pome fruits, cherries sweet, plums, table grapes, wine grapes, figs, kaki/Japanese persimmons, kiwi fruits, potatoes, tomatoes, sweet peppers/bell peppers, cucumbers, courgettes and soya bean. For other products it recommended raising or keeping the existing MRLs. It concluded that concerning the MRLs for apricot, peaches, strawberries, gherkins, lamb's lettuces/corn salads, lettuces, escaroles/broad leaved endives, cresses and other sprouts and shoots, land cresses, roman rocket/rucola, red mustards, baby leaf crops (including Brassica species), liver and kidney from swine, bovine, sheep, goat, equine and poultry liver, some information was not available and that further consideration by risk managers was required. As there is no risk for consumers, the MRLs for those products should be set in Annex II to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 at the existing level or the level identified by the Authority. These MRLs will be reviewed; the review will take into account the information available within two years from the publication of this Regulation.

(6)

As regards products on which the use of the plant protection product concerned is not authorised, and for which no import tolerances or Codex maximum residue limits (CXLs) exist, MRLs should be set at the specific limit of determination or the default MRL should apply, as provided for in Article 18(1)(b) of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005.

(7)

The Commission consulted the European Union reference laboratories for residues of pesticides as regards the need to adapt certain limits of determination. As regards several substances, those laboratories concluded that for certain commodities technical development requires the setting of specific limits of determination.

(8)

Based on the reasoned opinions of the Authority and taking into account the factors relevant to the matter under consideration, the appropriate modifications to the MRLs fulfil the requirements of Article 14(2) of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005.

(9)

Through the World Trade Organisation, the trading partners of the Union were consulted on the new MRLs and their comments have been taken into account.

(10)

Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(11)

In order to allow for the normal marketing, processing and consumption of products, this Regulation should provide for a transitional arrangement for products which have been produced before the modification of the MRLs and for which information shows that a high level of consumer protection is maintained.

(12)

A reasonable period should be allowed to elapse before the modified MRLs become applicable in order to permit Member States, third countries and food business operators to prepare themselves to meet the new requirements which will result from the modification of the MRLs.

(13)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annexes II and III to Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 are amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 as it stood before being amended by this Regulation shall continue to apply to products which were lawfully produced before 8 August 2018.

Article 3

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

It shall apply from 8 August 2018.

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

COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2018/79

of 18 January 2018

amending Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 October 2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food and repealing Directives 80/590/EEC and 89/109/EEC (1), and in particular Article 5(1)(a), (d), (e), (h) and (i), Article 11(3) and Article 12(6) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 (2) (‘the Regulation’) establishes a Union list of authorised substances which may be used in plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.

(2)

Since the last amendment to Regulation (EU) No 10/2011, the European Food Safety Authority (‘the Authority’) has published further scientific opinions on particular substances that may be used in food contact materials (‘FCM’) as well as on the permitted use of already authorised substances. In order to ensure that the Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 reflects the most recent findings of the Authority, that Regulation should be amended.

(3)

The Authority adopted a favourable scientific opinion (3) on the use of the substance (butadiene, styrene, methyl methacrylate, butyl acrylate) copolymer cross-linked with divinylbenzene or 1,3-butanediol dimethacrylate (FCM substance No 856 and CAS No 25101-28-4). The Authority concluded that the substance is not of a safety concern for the consumer if used as a polymeric additive at up to 40 % w/w in blends of styrene acrylonitrile copolymer (SAN)/poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) repeat-use articles intended for contact at room temperature with aqueous, acidic and/or low alcoholic (< 20 %) foodstuffs for less than 1 day and with dry foodstuffs for any duration of contact including long-term storage. The current authorisation of this substance should be extended to include that use, provided that those specifications are met.

(4)

The Authority adopted a favourable scientific opinion (4) on the use of the monomer 2,4,4′-trifluorobenzophenone (FCM substance No 1061 and CAS No 80512-44-3). The Authority concluded that this substance is not of a safety concern for the consumer if used as co-monomer up to 0,3 % w/w based on the final material in the manufacture of polyether ether ketone plastics. That monomer should therefore be included in the Union list of authorised substances with the restriction that this specification should be met.

(5)

The Authority adopted a favourable scientific opinion (5) on the use of the monomer 2,3,3,4,4,5,5-heptafluoro-1-pentene (FCM substance No 1063 and CAS No 1547-26-8). The Authority concluded that the substance is not of a safety concern for the consumer if used as co-monomer together with tetrafluoroethylene and/or ethylene co-monomers to manufacture fluorocopolymers that are only intended to be applied as polymer processing aids at up to 0,2 % w/w of the FCM. For this application, the low molecular mass fraction below 1 500 Da in the fluorocopolymer should be no greater than 30 mg/kg. That monomer should be included in the Union list of authorised substances with the restriction that those specifications should be met.

(6)

The Authority adopted a favourable scientific opinion (6) on the use of the substance tungsten oxide (WOn (n = 2,72-2,90)) (FCM substance No 1064 and CAS No 39318-18-8). The Authority concluded that the substance is not of a safety concern for the consumer if the additive is used as a reheat agent in polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The Authority considered that due to the insolubility of the substance, low migration is expected for any foreseeable use as a reheat additive in PET. Therefore, verification of the migration limit is not necessary. For other technical functions or for use in other polymers, the Authority concluded that the migration should not exceed 0,05 mg/kg (expressed as tungsten). That substance should be included in the Union list of authorised substances with the restriction that those specifications should be met.

(7)

The Authority adopted a favourable scientific opinion (7) on the use of the mixture of methyl-branched and linear C14-C18 alkanamides, derived from fatty acids (FCM substance No 1065 and CAS No 85711-28-0). The Authority concluded that the substance is not of a safety concern for the consumer if used in the manufacture of polyolefin articles intended for contact with all foodstuffs other than fatty foods (as defined by simulant D2) and when its migration does not exceed 5 mg/kg food. That mixture should therefore be included in the Union list of authorised substances with the restriction that these specifications should be met.

(8)

Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(9)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 is amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

Plastic materials and articles complying with Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 as applicable before the entry into force of this Regulation, may be placed on the market until 8 February 2019 and may remain on the market until exhaustion of stocks.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth 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.
