Commission Decision

of 29 October 2007

amending Council Directive 92/33/EEC to extend the derogation relating to import conditions for vegetable propagating and planting material from third countries

(notified under document number C(2007) 5218)

(2007/699/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 92/33/EEC of 28 April 1992 on the marketing of vegetable propagating and planting material other than seed(1), and in particular the second subparagraph of Article 16(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) The Commission is required pursuant to Article 16(1) of Directive 92/33/EEC to decide whether vegetable propagating and planting material, other than seed, produced in a third country and affording the same guarantees as regards obligations on the supplier, identity, characteristics, plant health, growing medium, packaging, inspection arrangements, marking and sealing, is equivalent in all these respects to vegetable propagating and planting material other than seed produced in the Community and complying with the requirements and conditions of that Directive.

(2) However, the information presently available on the conditions applying in third countries is still not sufficient to enable the Commission to adopt any such decision in respect of any third country at this stage.

(3) In order to prevent trade patterns from being disrupted, Member States importing vegetable propagating and planting material, other than seed, from third countries should continue to be allowed to apply to such products conditions equivalent to those applicable to similar Community products in accordance with Article 16(2) of Directive 92/33/EEC. The period of application of the derogation provided for in Directive 92/33/EEC for such imports should consequently be extended beyond 31 December 2007.

(4) Directive 92/33/EEC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Seeds and Propagating Materials for Agriculture, Horticulture and Forestry,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

(1)

OJ L 157, 10.6.1992, p. 1. Directive as last amended by Directive 2006/124/EC (OJ L 339, 6.12.2006, p. 12).
