repealing 13 obsolete Decisions in the field of the Common Fisheries Policy

(notified under document number C(2009) 1096)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1198/2006 of 27 July 2006 on the European Fisheries Fund (1), and in particular Article 101 thereof,

Whereas:

(2)

The following Decisions relating to the common fisheries policy have become obsolete, even though formally they are still in force:

(4)

For reasons of legal security and clarity, those obsolete Decisions should be repealed.

(5)
