Commission Decision

of 2 February 1998

authorising Member States temporarily to take emergency measures against the dissemination of Thrips palmi Karny as regards Thailand

(98/109/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 77/93/EEC of 21 December 1976 on protective measures against the introduction into the Community of organisms harmful to plants or plant products and against their spread within the Community(1), as last amended by Directive 97/14/EC(2), and in particular Article 15(3) thereof,

Whereas, where a Member State considers that there is an imminent danger of the introduction into its territory of Thrips palmi Karny from a third country, it may temporarily take any additional measures necessary to protect itself from that danger;

Whereas as a result of interceptions of Thrips palmi Karny on cut flowers of orchidaceae originating in Thailand, several Member States took official measures in order to protect the territory of the Community from the danger of introduction of the said organism and set up additional specific monitoring procedures for the said organism on the said commodity;

Whereas, on the basis of these continued interceptions of Thrips palmi Karny emergency measures applicable to the whole Community should be taken with a view to ensuring more efficient protection against the introduction of Thrips palmi Karny into the Community from the said country; whereas, these measures should include the requirement for a phytosanitary certificate for cut flowers of orchidaceae originating in Thailand combined with an official statement that the place of production has been found free from Thrips palmi Karny or the consignment has undergone appropriate fumigation treatment to ensure freedom from thysanoptera;

Whereas, if it becomes apparent that the emergency measures referred to in Article 1 of this Decision, are not sufficient to prevent the entry of Thrips palmi Karny or have not been complied with, more stringent or alternative measures should be envisaged;

Whereas the effect of the emergency measures will be assessed continually during 1997/1998 and possible subsequent measures applicable to the introduction of cut flowers of orchidaceae originating in Thailand, will be considered in the light of the results of that assessment;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plant Health,
