of 18 June 2019

approving non-minor amendments to the specification for a name entered in the register of protected designations of origin and protected geographical indications ‘Pruneaux d'Agen’/‘Pruneaux d'Agen mi-cuits’ (PGI)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 November 2012 on quality schemes for agricultural products and foodstuffs (1), and in particular Article 52(2) thereof,

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2019/1026

of 21 June 2019

on technical arrangements for developing, maintaining and employing electronic systems for the exchange of information and for the storage of such information under the Union Customs Code

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 the Council of 9 October 2013 laying down the Union Customs Code (1), and in particular Articles 8(1)(b) and 17 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Article 6(1) of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 (‘the Code’) requires that all exchanges of information, such as declarations, applications or decisions, between customs authorities and between economic operators and customs authorities, and the storage of that information, as required under the customs legislation, are made by using electronic data-processing techniques.

(2)

Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/578 (2) establishes the Work Programme for the implementation of the electronic systems required for the application of the Code, which are to be developed through projects listed in section II of the Annex to that Decision.

(3)

Important technical arrangements for the functioning of the electronic systems should be specified, such as arrangements for development, testing and deployment as well as for maintenance and for changes to be introduced in the electronic systems. Further arrangements should be specified concerning data protection, updating of data, limitation of data processing and systems ownership and security.

(4)

In order to safeguard the rights and interests of the Union, Member States and economic operators, it is important to lay down the procedural rules and provide for alternative solutions to be implemented in the event of a temporary failure of the electronic systems.

(5)

The Customs Decisions system, developed through the UCC Customs Decisions project referred to in Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/578, pursues the objective of harmonising the processes for the application for a customs decision, for the decision taking and the decision management in the whole of the Union using only electronic data-processing techniques. It is therefore necessary to lay down the rules governing that electronic system. The scope of the system should be determined by reference to the customs decisions which are to be applied for, taken and managed using that system. Detailed rules should be set out for the system's common components (EU trader portal, central customs decisions management system and customer reference services) and national components (national trader portal and national customs decisions management system), by specifying their functions and their interconnections.

(6)

Furthermore, rules have to be put in place concerning the data relating to authorisations that are already stored in existing electronic systems, such as the Regular Shipping Service system (RSS), and national systems and that have to be migrated to the Customs Decisions System.

(7)

The Uniform User Management and Digital Signature system, developed through the Direct Trader Access to the European Information Systems (Uniform User Management & Digital Signature) project referred to in Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/578, is to manage the authentication and access verification process for economic operators and other users. Detailed rules need to be set out regarding the scope and characteristics of the system by defining the different components (common and national components) of the system, their functions and interconnections. However, the ‘Digital Signature’ functionality is not yet available as part of the Uniform User Management and Digital Signature system. No detailed rules could therefore be laid down regarding that functionality in this Regulation.

(8)

The European Binding Tariff Information (EBTI) system, as upgraded through the UCC Binding Tariff Information (BTI) project referred to in Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/578, is aimed at aligning the processes for applying for, taking and managing BTI decisions with the requirements of the Code using only electronic data-processing techniques. It is therefore necessary to lay down rules governing that system. Detailed rules should be laid down for the system's common components (EU trader portal, central EBTI system and BTI usage monitoring) and national components (national trader portal and national BTI system), by specifying their functions and interconnections. Moreover, the project aims to facilitate the monitoring of compulsory BTI usage and the monitoring and management of BTI extended usage.

(9)

The Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) system, as upgraded through the UCC Economic Operator Registration and Identification system (EORI 2) project referred to in Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/578, is aimed at upgrading the existing trans-European EORI system, which enables the registration and identification of economic operators of the Union and of third country economic operators and other persons for the purposes of applying the customs legislation of the Union. It is therefore necessary to lay down rules governing the system by specifying the components (central EORI system and national EORI systems) and the use of the EORI system.

(10)

The Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) system, as upgraded through the UCC Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) project referred to in Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/578, is aimed at improving the business processes relating to AEO applications and authorisations and their management. The system is also aimed at implementing the electronic form to be used for AEO applications and decisions, and providing economic operators with an EU Harmonised Trader Interface (e-AEO Direct Trader Access) through which to submit AEO applications and receive AEO decisions electronically. Detailed rules should be laid down for the system's common components.

(11)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2089 (3) sets out technical arrangements for developing, maintaining and employing electronic systems for the exchange of information and for the storage of such information under the Code. That Implementing Regulation currently covers the Customs Decisions and the Uniform User Management and Digital Signature systems, which became operational in October 2017. Three other systems (EBTI, EORI and AEO) will soon become operational and, therefore, technical arrangements should also be specified for them. Given the number of changes to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2089 that would be necessary, and for reasons of clarity, that Regulation should be repealed and replaced.

(12)

This Regulation respects the fundamental rights and observes the principles recognised by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, and notably the right to protection of personal data. Where for the purposes of the application of the customs legislation of the Union it is necessary to process personal data in the electronic systems, those data must be processed in accordance with Regulations (EU) 2016/679 (4) and (EU) 2018/1725 (5) of the European Parliament and of the Council. The personal data of economic operators and other persons processed by the electronic systems are restricted to the dataset as defined in Annex A, Title I, Chapter 1, Group 3 — Parties and Annex A, Title I, Chapter 2, Group 3 — Parties and Annex 12-01 to Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/2446 (6).

(13)

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2019/1027

of 21 June 2019

approving non-minor amendments to the specification for a name entered in the register of protected designations of origin and protected geographical indications ‘Tiroler Speck’ (PGI)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 November 2012 on quality schemes for agricultural products and foodstuffs (1), and in particular Article 52(3)(a) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Pursuant to the first subparagraph of Article 53(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012, the Commission examined application sent by Austria for the approval of amendments to the specification for the protected geographical indication (henceforth PGI) ‘Tiroler Speck’, registered under Commission Regulation (EC) No 1065/97 (2).

(2)

Since the amendments in question were not minor within the meaning of Article 53(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012, the Commission published the amendment application in the Official Journal of the European Union (3) as required by Article 50(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012. This was also the first time a single document for ‘Tiroler Speck’ was published.

(3)

Concretely, the product specification applicable when the application for amendment was sent to the Commission provided, in its labelling rules, that the protected geographical indication ‘Tiroler Speck’ could not be translated into any other language. The proposed amendment aimed, among other things, at allowing the use of the protected name in translation under certain circumstances.

(4)

On 7 May 2018 the Commission received a notice of opposition from Italy. The related reasoned statement of opposition was received by the Commission on 5 July 2018. Italy opposed to the amendment of the labelling limitations concerning the use of translations of the protected name. On the grounds of Article 10(1)(c) of Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012, Italy claimed that the allowed use of the protected name in translation, although in conjunction with the protected name in German language, would jeopardise the existence of an entirely or partly identical name (Südtiroler Speck/Speck Alto Adige (PGI)).

(5)

Finding such opposition admissible, by letter dated 16 August 2018, the Commission invited Austria and Italy to engage in appropriate consultations for a period of three months to seek agreement among themselves in accordance with their internal procedures.

(6)

An agreement was reached between the parties. Austria communicated the results of the agreement to the Commission by letter of 30 August 2018. Austria and Italy agreed that the labelling rules of the product specification of the name ‘Tiroler Speck’ (PGI) should maintain the prohibition to use the translations of the protected name in labelling. In the light of the above, it is to conclude that, as regards the labelling rules, the agreement has superseded the application for amendment.

(7)

In accordance with point 5.5 of the published amendment application, the labelling provisions of the product specification should have been replaced by the following:

On every unit which is packaged and ready for sale, the holding number, a batch identifier in the form of a batch number or date, and the words “Tiroler Speck PGI” must appear in this form in a prominent place and in a legible and indelible manner.

In addition, the cut of meat used and/or the producer's region within the defined geographical area can also appear. Examples of labelling: — “Tiroler Speck PGI bacon” — “Tiroler Speck PGI made from ham” — “Tiroler Speck PGI loin Speck from the Zillertal” — “Tiroler Speck PGI made from belly pork, from the Ötztal region”.

An indication in the common language of the marketing area may be used, provided that the German term “Tiroler Speck PGI” is also given.

Names, business names and private labels may also be displayed, provided that the resulting packaging is not misleading.

(8)

The justification given for these changes in the amendment application was the following:

Detailed and comprehensive rules on labelling help to improve transparency and the information given to consumers. The use of additional information has also been regulated in order to indicate more precisely the cut of meat used and/or the producer's region within the defined geographical area, such that the regionality of the product is emphasised and a more detailed description of the product is provided by including additional information on the cuts of meat used. This provides a more accurate description of the product and more targeted information for consumers.

(9)

In accordance with the above mentioned agreement, the labelling provision of the product specification will be, instead, replaced by the following:

On every unit which is packaged and ready for sale, the holding number, a batch identifier in the form of a batch number or date, and the name of the protected geographical indication, “Tiroler Speck”, must be featured in a prominent place and in a legible and indelible manner. The name of the protected geographical indication, “Tiroler Speck”, may not be translated into another language.

The term “protected geographical indication” and/or the abbreviation “PGI” must immediately follow the name of the protected geographical indication, “Tiroler Speck”, and may also appear in a common language other than German, either instead of or as well as the German version.

For better information of consumers, descriptive terms for the product, including the cut of meat used (“bacon”, “loin Speck”, “belly Speck”; or “made from ham”, “made from loin pork”, “made from belly pork”), may also be used in the common language of the country in which the product is being marketed. However, these terms must be clearly separated from the protected geographical indication “Tiroler Speck”. This can be achieved by separating the terms over different lines, although sufficient line spacing must be maintained. On “technical labelling”, however, it may not be possible to separate the two terms by line due to space restrictions.

Without prejudice to the obligation to make a clear distinction between the protected geographical indication and the additional descriptive name, on so-called “technical labels”, i.e. labels which are generally affixed to the back packaged product and ready to be marketed, it may happen that due to limited space, a separation of the two indications on different lines is not possible.

Translations of references to the region of Tyrol as the place of origin must not be added to the descriptive terms for the product.

The producer's region within the defined geographical area may also be given, but must be separate from the protected geographical indication “Tiroler Speck” and the term “protected geographical indication” and/or the abbreviation “PGI”.

Names, business names and private labels may also be displayed, provided that the resulting packaging is not misleading.’

(10)

The justification given for these changes in the agreement, to be considered as part of the amendment application, as amended by the agreement, is the following:

On the one hand, it will continue to be ensured that the protected name “Tiroler Speck” is used only in its registered version. On the other hand, the requested amendment provides for additional descriptive information concerning the product as regards the cuts of meat used and the producer's region within the defined geographical area. This would result in an exhaustive and transparent information of the buyers, within the meaning of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011, and in a more detailed information as to the protected geographical indication “Tiroler Speck”. The following formulations may be mentioned as examples: “Tiroler Speck PGI — Bacon — from the Zillertal”, “Tiroler Speck PGI — made from ham”, “Tiroler Speck PGI Bacon.”

(11)

As it complies with the provisions of Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012 and EU legislation, the content of the agreement concluded between Austria and Italy should be taken into account

(12)

The single document was amended accordingly. The changes made to the single document following the agreement are not substantial and, in any event, they set back the labelling provision challenged in the opposition at the ‘status quo’. Therefore, a repetition of the scrutiny, as provided for in Article 51(4) of Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012, is not required. The consolidated version of the single document should, however, be published for information.

(13)

In the light of the above, the Commission considers that the amendment should be approved as modified by the agreement,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The amendments to the specification published in the Official Journal of the European Union regarding the name ‘Tiroler Speck’ (PGI), as amended in accordance with this Regulation, are hereby approved. The consolidated single document is set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

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.

TIROLER SPECK

EU No: PGI-AT-02162 — 8.8.2016

PDO ( )

PGI (X)

1.   Name(s)

‘Tiroler Speck’

2.   Member State or Third Country

Austria

3.   Description of the agricultural product or foodstuff

3.1.   Type of product

Class 1.2. Meat products (cooked, salted, smoked, etc.)

3.2.   Description of product to which the name in (1) applies

Tiroler Speck PGI is a traditionally artisanal cured pork product made from boneless leg, loin, belly, shoulder or neck, which is then dry-salted, seasoned with a particular blend of spices including at least juniper, black pepper and garlic, cured, cold smoked according to a region-specific process using at least 50 % beech or ash wood, and air dried. The outer colour is dark brown, and the cut surface is reddish with a white layer of fat. The smell is intensely and aromatically spicy with clear mature notes and a smoky fragrance. The taste is slightly spicy, passing from clear and recognisable smoky notes to a full meaty flavour and rounded off with a recognisable saltiness.

Physico-chemical and microbiological properties:

 

Water/protein ratio: max. 1,7 (tolerance + 0,2)

 

Salt content (NaCl): max. 5,0 % (tolerance + 1,5 % [centre] + 2,0 % [edge])

Tiroler Speck is made exclusively in the defined geographical area and is available, in its final form, either vacuum-packed or packaged in a controlled atmosphere, and either unsliced, in sections or in slices.

3.3.   Feed (for products of animal origin only) and raw materials (for processed products only)

The cuts of meat used for Tiroler Speck PGI originate in the European Union and comprise the leg with rind, with or without topside, loin with rind, belly with rind (with or without soft bones), shoulder clod with rind, and neck without rind, all with bones removed and cut in accordance with good manufacturing practice.

3.4.   Specific steps in production that must take place in the identified geographical area

All production steps (from salting to the final product) take place in the defined geographical area.

3.5.   Specific rules concerning slicing, grating, packaging, etc. of the product the registered name refers to

Tiroler Speck PGI must be sliced by a specialist trained in the production of Tiroler Speck PGI, known as a ‘Tiroler Speckmeister’, or be sliced under his or her supervision. During slicing, each finished batch must be given a sensory check to ensure there are no unwanted deviations in colour or taste. If there are defects (such as putrefaction, colour defects or the undesirable formation of a dry edge) immediate steps must be taken to adjust the control parameters (such as temperature, humidity or the duration of each step in the process) for the batches or units still in production. To enable this quality assurance to happen promptly, the activities for the production of packaged units of Tiroler Speck PGI are performed exclusively within the production holding or the group of holdings (i.e. a business holding with multiple sites, each performing individual stages of the production of Tiroler Speck PGI, or multiple postal addresses in the same district).

In order to avoid any detrimental effects from oxidation or drying out, or from microbiological spoilage due to mould growth, and thereby to avoid a loss of quality, the time between slicing and packaging it must be kept short, which is why packaging of Tiroler Speck PGI either unsliced, in sections or in slices, vacuum-packed or in a controlled atmosphere, must take place within the defined geographical area. However, if, due to specific arrangements, a period of storage is required before slicing begins, this must take place only in vacuum packaging or in a controlled atmosphere (initial packaging) to avoid loss of quality from further drying out or from microbiological spoilage due to mould growth. Tiroler Speck PGI is then either cut into pieces for domestic use or removed from the rind, prepared and cut into slices or made ‘kitchen-ready’, and either vacuum-packed or packaged in a controlled atmosphere (final packaging).

Tiroler Speck PGI can be sold unsliced to establishments within the food retail sector, provided that it is sliced in the presence of the purchaser and that this share of unsliced Tiroler Speck PGI does not exceed 10 % of the corresponding day's batch, and that, when checked as part of the slicing process (into sections, slices, cubes etc.), the remaining amount does not show any signs that the batch contains defects such as to suggest that the Speck to be sold unsliced is defective.

3.6.   Specific rules concerning labelling of the product the registered name refers to

On every unit which is packaged and ready for sale, the holding number, a batch identifier in the form of a batch number or date, and the name of the protected geographical indication, ‘Tiroler Speck’, must be featured in a prominent place and in a legible and indelible manner. The name of the protected geographical indication, ‘Tiroler Speck’, may not be translated into another language.

The term ‘protected geographical indication’ and/or the abbreviation ‘PGI’ must immediately follow the name of the protected geographical indication, ‘Tiroler Speck’, and may also appear in a common language other than German, either instead of or as well as the German version.

Descriptive terms for the product, including the cut of meat used (‘bacon’, ‘loin Speck’, ‘belly Speck’; or ‘made from ham’, ‘made from loin pork’, ‘made from belly pork’), may also be used in the common language of the country in which the product is being marketed. However, these terms must be clearly separated from the protected geographical indication ‘Tiroler Speck’. This can be achieved by separating the terms over different lines, although sufficient line spacing must be maintained. On ‘technical labelling’, however, it may not be possible to separate the two terms by line due to space restrictions.

Translations of references to the region of Tyrol as the place of origin must not be added to the descriptive terms for the product.

The producer's region within the defined geographical area may also be given, but must be separate from the protected geographical indication ‘Tiroler Speck’ and the term ‘protected geographical indication’ and/or the abbreviation ‘PGI’.

Names, business names and private labels may also be displayed, provided that the resulting packaging is not misleading.

4.   Concise definition of the geographical area

Province of Tyrol

5.   Link with the geographical area

In Tyrol's mountainous landscape, which is characterised by farmland, the production of Speck as a means to preserve fresh meat has been developed and refined across many generations. Knowledge of the special recipe of spices and the traditional production method for Tiroler Speck was passed down by each generation of farmers to their children. This tradition, handed down from person to person, developed into a generally accepted standard for today's commercial Tiroler Speck production. The drying process in the clean Tyrolean mountain air, the gentle smoking process using specific spice mixes, and the use of beech or ash wood to create the smoke — all of which are necessary components of the production process — constitute a special, region-specific procedure which lends Tiroler Speck its characteristic dark brown appearance. With the exception of the ‘Schopfspeck’ [neck Speck], the cut surfaces exhibit a white fat cover and the meat is a bold red colour, which darkens towards the meat side. The unmistakeable characteristics of this product are its aromatically spicy fragrance with recognisable mature notes and its lightly spiced flavour with smoky and salty notes, all the while underpinned by the aroma of the pork. Within this broader picture, regional variations and subtle changes to the organoleptic properties are common, depending on the cultural peculiarities that have taken root in the corresponding regions and valleys of the defined geographical area. Accordingly, certain aspects of the product's typical nature, such as the taste profile or the hints of smoked wood, take on particular regional characteristics without influencing or altering the overall identity of Tiroler Speck PGI.

The traditional production method that has developed in the geographical area is based on the expertise of the producers, which has been passed down over the centuries.

The knowledge and artisanal tradition of the Tiroler Speckmeister ensure that the high quality of the product is preserved. The Tiroler Speckmeister's centuries of practical experience regarding the effects that the raw materials and climatic conditions have on the quality of the product (including knowledge of disruptive influencing factors, the causes of abnormalities, the constantly changing properties of the raw materials and environmental factors and the reciprocal effects of the production parameters) play an essential role in achieving the high standard of quality of the final product. The duration of the air-drying process is therefore measured by the Tiroler Speckmeister based on the current climatic conditions in the region and the size of the cut of meat. This is to ensure a careful drying process and a product of unimpaired quality with all its characteristic features (dark brown exterior colour, medium-firm to firm texture, juniper flavour with recognisable salty notes and a smoky fragrance).

The supervision of the production process by the Tiroler Speckmeister, who receives regular further specialist training, prevents any detrimental effects on the product and any loss of quality.

COUNCIL DECISION (EU) 2019/1028

of 14 June 2019

on the position to be taken on behalf of the European Union within the Council of Members of the International Olive Council as regards trade standards applying to olive oils and olive pomace oils

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 207(3), in conjunction with Article 218(9) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

The International Agreement on Olive Oil and Table Olives, 2015 (‘the Agreement’) was signed on behalf of the Union in accordance with Council Decision (EU) 2016/1892 (1) on 18 November 2016 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, subject to its conclusion at a later date. The Agreement entered into force provisionally on 1 January 2017 in accordance with Article 31(2) thereof.

(2)

The Agreement was concluded on 17 May 2019 by Council Decision (EU) 2019/848 (2).

(3)

Pursuant to Article 7(1) of the Agreement, the Council of Members of the International Olive Council (‘Council of Members’) is to adopt decisions that modify trade standards applying to olive oils and olive pomace oils.

(4)

The Council of Members, during its 109th session from 17 June to 21 June 2019, is to adopt decisions modifying trade standards applying to olive oils and olive pomace oils.

(5)

It is appropriate to establish the position to be taken on the Union's behalf in the Council of Members, as the decisions to be adopted will have legal effects on the Union as regards international trade with the other members of the International Olive Council (IOC) and will be capable of decisively influencing the content of Union law, namely on marketing standards concerning olive oil adopted by the Commission pursuant to Article 75 of Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3).

(6)

The decisions to be adopted by the Council of Members concern the revision of a title, precision and figure margins, chromatograms, precision values and references to other documents. They have been extensively discussed between scientific and technical experts of the Commission and Member States on olive oil. They will contribute to the international harmonisation of the olive oil standards and establish a framework which will ensure fair competition in the trading of products of the olive oil sector. Those decisions should therefore be supported, and consequently amendments to Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2568/91 (4) will be required.

(7)

If the adoption of those decisions by the Council of Members during its 109th session is postponed as a result of some Members not being in a position to give their approval, the position set out in the Annex to this Decision should be taken on behalf of the Union within the framework of a possible procedure for adoption by the Council of Members by exchange of correspondence, pursuant to Article 10(6) of the Agreement. The procedure for adoption by exchange of correspondence should be initiated before the next regular session of the Council of Members in November 2019.

(8)

In order to preserve the interests of the Union, the representatives of the Union in the Council of Members should be allowed to request to postpone the adoption of decisions modifying trade standards applying to olive oils and olive pomace oils in the 109th session of the Council of Members, if new scientific or technical information presented before or during that session calls into question the position to be taken on the Union's behalf,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The position to be taken on the Union's behalf within the Council of Members during its 109th session from 17 June to 21 June 2019, or within the framework of a procedure for adoption of decisions by the Council of Members by an exchange of correspondence to be initiated before its next regular session in November 2019, as regards trade standards applying to olive oils and olive pomace oils, is set out in the Annex.

Article 2

If the position referred to in Article 1 is likely to be affected by new scientific or technical information presented before or during the 109th session of the Council of Members, the Union shall request that the adoption by the Council de Members of decisions modifying trade standards applying to olive oils and olive pomace oils be postponed until the position of the Union is established on the basis of that new information.

Article 3

This Decision shall enter into force on the date of its adoption.

Done at Luxembourg, 14 June 2019.

COUNCIL DECISION (EU) 2019/1029

of 18 June 2019

on the position to be taken on behalf of the European Union in the relevant Committees of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe as regards the proposals for modifications to UN Regulations Nos 14, 17, 24, 30, 44, 51, 64, 75, 78, 79, 83, 85, 90, 115, 117, 129, 138, 139, 140 and 145, as regards the proposals for modifications to Global Technical Regulations (GTRs) Nos 15 and 19, as regards the proposal for an amendment to Mutual Resolution M.R.2, as regards the proposal for one new UN Regulation, and as regards the proposals for amendments to the authorisations to develop GTRs

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 114, in conjunction with Article 218(9) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

By Council Decision 97/836/EC (1), the Union acceded to the Agreement of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) concerning the adoption of uniform technical prescriptions for wheeled vehicles, equipment and parts which can be fitted to and/or be used on wheeled vehicles and the conditions for reciprocal recognition of approvals granted on the basis of those prescriptions (the ‘Revised 1958 Agreement’). The Revised 1958 Agreement entered into force on 24 March 1998.

(2)

By Council Decision 2000/125/EC (2), the Union acceded to the Agreement concerning the establishing of global technical regulations for wheeled vehicles, equipment and parts which can be fitted and/or be used on wheeled vehicles (the ‘Parallel Agreement’). The Parallel Agreement entered into force on 15 February 2000.

(3)

Pursuant to Article 1 of the Revised 1958 Agreement and Article 6 of the Parallel Agreement, the Administrative Committee of the Revised 1958 Agreement and the Executive Committee of the Parallel Agreement (‘the relevant Committees of UNECE’) may adopt, as applicable, the proposals for modifications to UN Regulations Nos 14, 17, 24, 30, 44, 51, 64, 75, 78, 79, 83, 85, 90, 115, 117, 129, 138, 139, 140 and 145, the proposals for modifications to Global Technical Regulations (GTRs) Nos 15 and 19, the proposal for an amendment to Mutual Resolution M.R.2, the proposal for one new UN Regulation, and the proposals for amendments to the authorisations to develop GTRs (the ‘mega decision’).

(4)

The relevant Committees of UNECE, during the 178th session of the World Forum to be held between 24 and 28 June 2019, are to adopt a mega decision in relation to the administrative provisions and uniform technical prescriptions for the approval of and global technical regulations for wheeled vehicles, equipment and parts which can be fitted and/or be used on wheeled vehicles.

(5)

It is appropriate to establish the position to be taken on the Union's behalf in the relevant Committees of UNECE as regards the adoption of proposals for UN Regulations, as the UN Regulations will be binding on the Union and capable of decisively influencing the content of Union law in the field of vehicle type-approval.

(6)

Directive 2007/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (3) replaced the approval systems of the Member States with a Union approval procedure and established a harmonised framework containing administrative provisions and general technical requirements for all new vehicles, systems, components and separate technical units. That Directive incorporated regulations adopted under the Revised 1958 Agreement (‘UN Regulations’) in the EU type-approval system, either as requirements for type-approval or as alternatives to Union legislation. Since the adoption of Directive 2007/46/EC, UN regulations have been increasingly incorporated into Union legislation.

(7)

In the light of experience and technical developments, the requirements relating to certain elements or features covered by UN Regulations Nos 17, 24, 30, 44, 64, 75, 78, 79, 83, 85, 90, 115, 117, 129, 138, 139, and 140 need to be supplemented and UN Global Technical Regulations Nos 15 and 19 need to be amended. In addition, certain provisions in UN Regulations Nos 14, 51, 83, 129 and 145, and in the UN Global Technical Regulation 15 need to be corrected. Finally, new requirements regarding the Advanced Emergency Braking System need to be adopted,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The position to be taken on the Union's behalf in the Administrative Committee of the Revised 1958 Agreement and the Executive Committee of the Parallel Agreement during the 178th session of the World Forum to be held between 24 and 28 June 2019 shall be to vote in favour of the proposals listed in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision shall enter into force on the date of its adoption.

Done at Luxembourg, 18 June 2019.

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2019/1030

of 21 June 2019

postponing the expiry date of approval of indoxacarb for use in biocidal products of product-type 18

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2012 concerning the making available on the market and use of biocidal products (1), and in particular Article 14(5) thereof,

After consulting the Standing Committee on Biocidal Products,

Whereas:

(1)

The active substance indoxacarb was included in Annex I to Directive 98/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) for use in biocidal products of product-type 18, and pursuant to Article 86 of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 is therefore considered approved under that Regulation subject to the specifications and conditions set out in Annex I to that Directive.

(2)

The approval of indoxacarb for use in biocidal products of product-type 18 will expire on 31 December 2019. On 28 June 2018, an application was submitted in accordance with Article 13(1) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 for the renewal of the approval of indoxacarb.

(3)

On 12 November 2018, the evaluating competent authority of France informed the Commission that it had decided, pursuant to Article 14(1) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012, that a full evaluation of the application was necessary. Pursuant to Article 8(1) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012, the evaluating competent authority is to perform a full evaluation of the application within 365 days of its validation.

(4)

The evaluating competent authority may, as appropriate, request the applicant to provide sufficient data to carry out the evaluation, in accordance with Article 8(2) of that Regulation. In such case, the 365-day period is suspended for a period that may not exceed 180 days in total unless a longer suspension is justified by the nature of the data requested or by exceptional circumstances.

(5)

Within 270 days of receipt of a recommendation from the evaluating competent authority, the European Chemicals Agency (‘the Agency’) is to prepare and submit to the Commission an opinion on renewal of the approval of the active substance in accordance with Article 14(3) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012.

(6)

Consequently, for reasons beyond the control of the applicant, the approval of indoxacarb for use in biocidal products of product-type 18 is likely to expire before a decision has been taken on its renewal. It is therefore appropriate to postpone the expiry date of approval of indoxacarb for use in biocidal products of product-type 18 for a period of time sufficient to enable the examination of the application. Considering the time-limits for the evaluation by the evaluating competent authority and for the preparation and submission of the opinion by the Agency, it is appropriate to postpone the expiry date of approval to 30 June 2022.

(7)

Except for the expiry date of the approval, indoxacarb remains approved for use in biocidal products of product-type 18 subject to the specifications and conditions set out in Annex I to Directive 98/8/EC,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The expiry date of approval of indoxacarb for use in biocidal products of product-type 18 is postponed to 30 June 2022.

Article 2

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

COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2019/1031

of 21 June 2019

amending the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU concerning animal health control measures relating to African swine fever in certain Member States

(notified under document C(2019) 4883)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Directive 89/662/EEC of 11 December 1989 concerning veterinary checks in intra-Community trade with a view to the completion of the internal market (1), and in particular Article 9(4) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/425/EEC of 26 June 1990 concerning veterinary checks applicable in intra-Union trade in certain live animals and products with a view to the completion of the internal market (2), and in particular Article 10(4) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 2002/99/EC of 16 December 2002 laying down the animal health rules governing the production, processing, distribution and introduction of products of animal origin for human consumption (3), and in particular Article 4(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU (4) lays down animal health control measures in relation to African swine fever in certain Member States, where there have been confirmed cases of that disease in domestic or feral pigs (the Member States concerned). The Annex to that Implementing Decision demarcates and lists certain areas of the Member States concerned in Parts I to IV thereof, differentiated by the level of risk based on the epidemiological situation as regards that disease. The Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU has been amended several times to take account of changes in the epidemiological situation in the Union as regards African swine fever that need to be reflected in that Annex. The Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU was last amended by Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/975 (5), following instances of African swine fever in Lithuania and Poland.

(2)

Since the date of adoption of Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/975, there have been further instances of African swine fever in domestic and feral pigs in Poland, Lithuania and Romania that also need to be reflected in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU.

(3)

In June 2019, two outbreaks of African swine fever in domestic pigs were observed in Lithuania in the districts of Marijampolė and Prienai in areas currently listed in Part II of the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. These outbreaks of African swine fever in domestic pigs constitute an increased level of risk which should be reflected in that Annex. Accordingly, these areas of Lithuania affected by African swine fever should be listed in Part III of the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU instead of in Part II thereof.

(4)

GUIDELINES

24.6.2019   

EN

Official Journal of the European Union

L 167/64


GUIDELINE (EU) 2019/1032 OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK

of 10 May 2019

amending Guideline (EU) 2015/510 on the implementation of the Eurosystem monetary policy framework (ECB/2019/11)

THE GOVERNING COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular the first indent of Article 127(2) thereof,

Having regard to the Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank, and in particular the first indent of Article 3.1, Articles 9.2, 12.1, 14.3 and 18.2 and the first paragraph of Article 20 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Achieving a single monetary policy entails defining the tools, instruments and procedures to be used by the Eurosystem in order to implement such a policy in a uniform manner throughout the Member States whose currency is the euro.

(2)

Guideline (EU) 2015/510 of the European Central Bank (ECB/2014/60) (1) should be amended to incorporate necessary technical and editorial adjustments relating to certain aspects of monetary policy operations.

(3)

With a view to strengthening the transparency of the Eurosystem collateral framework, the definition of agencies as issuers or guarantors of debt instruments should be further clarified.

(4)

Regulation (EU) 2017/2402 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), adopted on 12 December 2017, lays down a general framework for securitisation and creates a framework for simple, transparent and standardised securitisations. The Eurosystem collateral framework should be revised to take account of relevant features of (a) the disclosure requirements set out in that Regulation in relation to data on the credit quality and performance of underlying exposures, and (b) the provisions of that Regulation regarding the registration of securitisation repositories with the European Securities and Markets Authority.

(5)

To assess the credit quality of assets provided as collateral for credit operations, the Eurosystem takes into account information from credit assessment systems. In this context, the use of third-party rating tool (RT) providers as one of the accepted credit assessment sources should be discontinued to reduce the complexity of the Eurosystem collateral framework and to contribute to reducing the Eurosystem's reliance on external credit assessments.

(6)

The Eurosystem accepts as collateral certain marketable debt instruments issued or guaranteed by multilateral development banks and international organisations. The criteria for recognising entities as multilateral development banks or international organisations should be streamlined in order to reduce the complexity of the Eurosystem collateral framework.

(7)

The Eurosystem accepts as collateral certain credit claims. The eligibility criteria for such credit claims need to be amended to reduce the complexity and ensure the consistency of the Eurosystem collateral framework. In particular, the Eurosystem will no longer differentiate between floating rate credit claims that have ceilings or floors introduced at issuance and after issuance. Similarly, the Eurosystem will no longer differentiate between floating rate credit claims with a reference rate linked to the yield of government bonds based on the maturity of the government bonds. It also needs to be clarified that credit claims are not eligible if their most recent cash flow was negative. Furthermore, a minimum size threshold for the eligibility of domestic credit claims should be introduced in order to further harmonise the use of credit claims as collateral for Eurosystem credit operations.

(8)

All eligible assets for Eurosystem credit operations are subject to valuation rules and specific risk control measures in order to protect the Eurosystem against financial losses in circumstances where its collateral has to be realised due to an event of default of a counterparty. In this context, it needs to be clarified that the Eurosystem assigns a value to non-marketable assets based on the outstanding amount of such assets.

(9)

The Eurosystem accepts as collateral covered bonds issued, owed or guaranteed by the counterparty or by an entity closely linked to it, provided these covered bonds meet certain criteria. In this context, the Eurosystem needs to further clarify the criteria for accepting such covered bonds as collateral.

(10)

Other amendments, of a minor nature, need to be made in the interest of clarity, including with regard to the amount to be collateralised in liquidity-providing operations, the deadline for requesting access to the standing facilities and the geographical restrictions concerning asset-backed securities and cash-flow generating assets.

(11)

Therefore, Guideline (EU) 2015/510 (ECB/2014/60) should be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS GUIDELINE:
