Council Directive 95/61/EC of 29 November 1995 amending Annex II to Directive 90/642/EEC relating to the fixing of maximum levels for pesticide residues in and on certain products of plant origin, including fruit and vegetables

COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 95/61/EC of 29 November 1995 amending Annex II to Directive 90/642/EEC relating to the fixing of maximum levels for pesticide residues in and on certain products of plant origin, including fruit and vegetables

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/642/EEC of 27 November 1990 on the fixing of maximum levels of pesticide residues in and on certain products of plant origin, including fruit and vegetables (1), and in particular Article 1 (1) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas Directive 90/642/EEC was amended for the first time by Directive 93/58/EEC (2) which, amongst other provisions, provided for the establishment of a first list of maximum levels for certain pesticide residues;

Whereas, however, available data were insufficient at that time to set finite maximum residue levels for certain pesticide - crop combinations; whereas in such cases a period of four years for the generation of the necessary data was prescribed after which, in the continued absence of satisfactory data, levels would normally be established at the appropriate limit of determination;

Whereas the Commission and the Council agreed at the time of adoption of Directive 93/58/EEC that the Member States should obtain undertakings within one year from all interested parties that the necessary data would be generated; whereas in certain cases no undertakings have been given and it is therefore already possible to lay down appropriate provisions,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:

Article 1

Annex II of Directive 90/642/EEC is hereby amended as set out in the Annex to this Directive.

Article 2

Member States shall bring into force not later than 31 October 1996 the laws, regulations or administrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive.

When Member States adopt these measures, they shall contain a reference to this Directive or shall be accompanied by such a reference on the occasion of their official publication. The method of making such a reference shall be laid down by the Member State.

Article 3

This Directive shall enter into force on the day of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Communities.

Article 4

This Directive is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 29 November 1995.

For the Council The President L. ATIENZA SERNA
