THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Whereas under the provisions of Annex III, Part A (12) of Directive 77/93/EEC tubers of Solanum tuberosum L., other than seed potatoes and certain other potatoes specified in Annex III, Part A (10) and (11), originating in certain European third countries other than those recognized as being free from Clavibacter michiganensis (Smith) Davis et al ssp. sepedonicus (Spieckerman et Kotthoff) Davis et al may not be introduced into the Member States;

Whereas it has appeared from official information supplied by Hungary that the aforementioned harmful organism does not occur in that country, and that it has long maintained a strict control and post-entry inspection and testing procedure for the aforementioned harmful organism on imports of potatoes;

Whereas it can therefore be established that there is no risk of the aforementioned harmful organism spreading;

Whereas this Decision is without prejudice to any subsequent findings which may show that the aforementioned harmful organism is present in that country;

Whereas the Commission will ensure that on a yearly basis Hungary makes all technical information available which is necessary to assess the aforementioned situation;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plant Health,
