THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 91/492/EEC of 15 July 1991 laying down the health conditions for the production and the placing on the market of live bivalve molluscs (1), as last amended by Directive 97/79/EC (2), and in particular Article 9 thereof,

Whereas Commission Decision 96/333/EC of 3 May 1996 establishing health certification of live bivalve molluscs, echinoderms, tunicates and marine gastropods from third countries which are not yet covered by a specific decision (3), as amended by Decision 97/589/EC (4), is applicable until 31 December 1998;

Whereas Commission Decision 97/20/EC (5), as amended by Decision 98/572/EC (6), establishes the list of third countries fulfilling the equivalence conditions for the production and placing on the market of bivalve molluscs, echinoderms, tunicates and marine gastropods; whereas Part II of that list contains the third countries which might be the subject of a provisional decision based on Council Decision 95/408/EC (7), as last amended by Decision 98/603/EC (8);

Whereas, under Decision 95/408/EC, that list is applicable until 31 December 2000; whereas the date of validity of certification should therefore be amended to bring it into line with the date of validity of the provisional lists;

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