Whereas:

(1) By way of derogation from Directive 2000/29/EC, Commission Decision 2005/51/EC of 21 January 2005 authorising Member States temporarily to provide for derogations from certain provisions of Council Directive 2000/29/EC in respect of the importation of soil contaminated by pesticides or persistent organic pollutants for decontamination purposes(2) authorises, for a limited period, Member States participating in the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) programme on prevention and disposal of obsolete and unwanted pesticides to permit the introduction of soil contaminated by such pesticides into the Union for treatment in dedicated hazardous waste incinerators. That programme is still ongoing.

(2) In view of the circumstances justifying the derogation granted by Decision 2005/51/EC and in the interest of good legislative practice, it is now appropriate to extend that derogation by 5 years.

(3) Decision 2005/51/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.
