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:

(1) In Commission Decision 1999/813/EC(2), the "National Fisheries Inspection and Quality Assurance Center (NAFIQACEN) of the Ministry of Fisheries" is identified as the competent authority in Vietnam for verifying and certifying compliance of fishery and aquaculture products with the requirements of Directive 91/493/EEC.

(2) Following a restructuring of the Vietnamese administration, the competent authority has changed to the "National Fisheries Quality Assurance and Veterinary Directorate (NAFIQAVED)". This new authority is capable of effectively verifying the application of the rules in force.

(3) The NAFIQAVED 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 1999/813/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,
