COMMISSION DECISION of 8 September 1994 laying down rules applicable to veterinary checks to be carried out on products imported into certain Greek islands from third countries (Only the Greek text is authentic) (94/641/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/675/EEC of 10 December 1990 laying down the principles governing the organization of veterinary checks on products entering the Community from third countries (1), as last amended by Directive 92/118/EEC (2), and in particular Article 17 thereof,

Whereas the Greek authorities have submitted to the Commission the plan provided for in the second paragraph of Article 17 of Directive 90/675/EEC;

Whereas, on the basis of that plan, the list of authorized island entry points, the special duties of operators and the inspection procedure to be used should be laid down;

Whereas the rules laid down are adequate to ensure that the products concerned are consumed locally and not re-shipped elsewhere in the Community;

Whereas Article 17 of Directive 90/675/EEC provides for the adoption of certain specific provisions regarding the checks provided for in Chapter I of the said Directive, by way of substitution of certain provisions of that Chapter; whereas, for reasons of clarity, the provisions of Chapter I of Directive 90/675/EEC which should remain applicable should be laid down;
