DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE

No 64/2013

of 3 May 2013

amending Annex II (Technical regulations, standards, testing and certification) to the EEA Agreement

THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE,

Having regard to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (‘the EEA Agreement’), and in particular Article 98 thereof,

(1)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 788/2012 of 31 August 2012 concerning a coordinated multiannual control programme of the Union for 2013, 2014 and 2015 to ensure compliance with maximum residue levels of pesticides and to assess the consumer exposure to pesticide residues in and on food of plant and animal origin (1) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(2)

Implementing Regulation (EU) No 788/2012 repeals Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1274/2011 (2), which is incorporated into the EEA Agreement, and which is consequently to be repealed under the EEA Agreement.

This Decision concerns legislation regarding foodstuffs. Legislation regarding foodstuffs shall not apply to Liechtenstein as long as the application of the Agreement between the European Community and the Swiss Confederation on trade in agricultural products is extended to Liechtenstein, as specified in the introduction to Chapter XII of Annex II to the EEA Agreement. This Decision is therefore not to apply to Liechtenstein.

(a)

The following shall be added in Article 1:
