THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 91/493/EEC of 22 July 1991 laying down the health conditions for the production and the placing on the market of fishery products(1), and in particular Article 11(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(2) Following a restructuring of the Kazakhstan administration, the competent authority has changed to the "Veterinary Department of the Ministry of Agriculture (VD-MA)". This new authority is capable of verifying effectively the application of the laws in force.

(3) The VD-MA has provided official assurances on compliance with the standards for health controls and monitoring of fishery and aquaculture products as set out in Directive 91/493/EEC and on the fulfilment of hygienic requirements equivalent to those laid down in that Directive.

(4) Decision 2002/862/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.
