BAKGRUNN (fra kommisjonsbeslutningen, engelsk utgave)
(1) On 29 March 2017, the United Kingdom submitted the notification of its intention to withdraw from the Union pursuant to Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU). On 11 April 2019, the European Council adopted Decision (EU) 2019/584 extending the period under Article 50(3) TEU in agreement with the United Kingdom. In accordance with that Decision, the period provided for in Article 50(3) TEU has been further extended until 31 October 2019. Union law will therefore cease to apply to and in the United Kingdom from 1 November 2019 (“the withdrawal date”).
(2) Regulation (EC) No 854/2004 provides that products of animal origin are only to be imported from a third country or part of a third country that appears on a list drawn up in accordance with that Regulation.
(3) Commission Decision 2006/766/EC lists those third countries which satisfy the criteria referred to in Regulation (EC) No 854/2004 and are therefore able to guarantee that exports of those products to the Union meet the sanitary conditions laid down in Union legislation to protect the health of consumers.
(4) In particular, Annex I to that Decision sets out a list of third countries authorised for the introduction of bivalve molluscs, tunicates, echinoderms and marine gastropods and Annex II to that Decision sets out a list of third countries and territories authorised for the introduction of fishery products for human consumption. Those lists also indicate restrictions concerning such imports from certain third countries.
(5) The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has provided the necessary guarantees for that country and its Crown Dependencies to comply with the conditions laid down in Regulation (EC) No 854/2004 for the introduction into the Union of consignments of bivalve molluscs, echinoderms, tunicates, marine gastropods and fishery products for human consumption from the withdrawal date by continuing to comply with Union legislation for an initial period of at least nine months.
(6) Therefore, taking into account these specific guarantees provided by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and in order to avoid any unnecessary disruption to trade after the withdrawal date, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and its Crown Dependencies should be included in the lists of third countries and territories set out in Decision 2006/766/EC authorised for the introduction of bivalve molluscs, echinoderms, tunicates, marine gastropods and fishery products for human consumption.
(7) Annexes I and II to Decision 2006/766/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.
(8) This Decision should apply from 1 November 2019, unless Union law continues to apply to and in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on that date.
(9) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed
