COMMISSION DECISION of 6 September 1991 amending the Seventh Council Decision 85/355/EEC on the equivalence of field inspections carried out in third countries on seed-producing crops and the Seventh Council Decision 85/356/EEC on the equivalence of seed produced in third countries (91/514/EEC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 66/401/EEC of 14 June 1966 on the marketing of fodder plant seed (1), as last amended by Directive 90/654/EEC (2), and in particular Article 16 (1) (b) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 66/402/EEC of 14 June 1966 on the marketing of cereal seed (3), as last amended by Directive 90/654/EEC, and in particular Article 16 (1) (b) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 69/208/EEC of 30 June 1969 on the marketing of seed of oil and fibre plants (4), as last amended by Directive 90/654/EEC, and in particular Article 15 (1) (b) thereof,

Having regard to the Seventh Council Decision 85/355/EEC of 27 June 1985 on the equivalence of field inspections carried out in third countries on seed-producing crops (5), as last amended by Directive 90/654/EEC, and in particular Article 2 thereof,

Having regard to the Seventh Council Decision 85/356/EEC of 27 June 1985 on the equivalence of seed produced in third countries (6), as last amended by Directive 90/654/EEC, and in particular Article 4 thereof,

Whereas, in its Decision 85/355/EEC, the Council determined that field inspections carried out in certain third countries on seed-producing crops of certain species satisfied the conditions laid down in Directives 66/401/EEC, 66/402/EEC and 69/208/EEC;

Whereas, in its Decision 85/356/EEC, the council determined that seed of certain species produced in certain third countries was equivalent to corresponding seed produced in the Community;

Whereas for certain species those determinations include Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Chile, the United States of America, Uruguay and Yugoslavia;

Whereas the name 'Czechoslovakia' has now been changed to the 'Czech and Slovak Federal Republic' and the appropriate amendments should accordingly be made to the Annexes to Decisions 85/355/EEC and 85/356/EEC;

Whereas the names of the services which carry out field inspections and officially control seed in Czechoslovakia, Hungary, the United States of America and Yugoslavia have changed and appropriate administrative amendments should accordingly be made to the Annexes to Decisions 85/355/EEC and 85/356/EEC;

Whereas an examination of the rules of Hungary, Poland, Romania, Chile and Uruguay and the manner in which they are applied has shown that:

- in Hungary, in respect of red top, creeping bent grass and canary grass,

- in Poland, in respect of velvet bent, Alsike clover, Persian clover, California bluebell and hemp,

- in Romania, in respect of wheat,

- in Chile, in respect of Persian clover, white lupin, durum wheat, wheat, oats, barley and colza,

- in Uruguay, in respect of flax/linseed,

the prescribed field inspections satisfy the conditions laid down in Annex I to Directive 66/401/EEC, 66/402/EEC or 69/208/EEC, as the case may be, and the conditions governing seed harvested and controlled there afford the same assurances, as regards the seed's characteristics, identity, examination, marking and control, as do the conditions applicable to such seed harvested and controlled within the Community;

Whereas the existing equivalence for those five countries should therefore be extended accordingly;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Seeds and Propagating Material for Agriculture, Horticulture and Forestry,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The word 'Czechoslovakia' in point 1.1 of heading 1 ('Legend') of Part 1 of the Annexes to Decisions 85/355/EEC and 85/356/EEC is hereby replaced by 'the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic'.
