DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE

No 85/2017

of 5 May 2017

amending Annex II (Technical regulations, standards, testing and certification) to the EEA Agreement [2019/197]

THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE,

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

Whereas:

(1)

Directive (EU) 2015/2203 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2015 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to caseins and caseinates intended for human consumption and repealing Council Directive 83/417/EEC (1) is to be incorporated into the EEA Agreement.

(2)

Directive (EU) 2015/2203 repeals Council Directive 83/417/EEC (2) which is incorporated into the EEA Agreement and which is consequently to be repealed under the EEA Agreement.

(3)

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.

(4)

Annex II to the EEA Agreement should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

2.

The text of point 32 (Council Directive 83/417/EEC) is deleted.

Article 2

The text of Directive (EU) 2015/2203 in the Icelandic and Norwegian languages, to be published in the EEA Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union, shall be authentic.

Article 3

This Decision shall enter into force on 6 May 2017, provided that all the notifications under Article 103(1) of the EEA Agreement have been made (*1).

Article 4

This Decision shall be published in the EEA Section of, and in the EEA Supplement to, the Official Journal of the European Union.
