Whereas a group of Commission experts has conducted an inspection visit to Chile to verify the conditions under which fishery products are produced, stored and dispatched to the Community;

Whereas the provisions of Chilean legislation on health inspection and monitoring of fishery products may be considered equivalent to those laid down in Directive 91/493/EEC;

Whereas Servicio nacional de Pesca, (Sernap) the competent Chilean authority, and its department 'Sanidad pesquera', are capable of effectively verifying the application of the laws in force;

Whereas the procedure for obtaining the health certificate referred to in Article 11 (4) (a) of Directive 91/493/EEC must also cover the definition of a model certificate, the minimum requirements regarding the language(s) in which it must be drafted and the qualifications of the person empowered to sign it;
