Having regard to the submission of sampling plans and control plans by Member States,

Whereas:

(1) Pursuant to Article 60(1) and (2) of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 a Member State should ensure that all fisheries products are weighed on landing prior to the fisheries products being held in storage, transported or sold, on systems approved by the control authorities unless it has adopted a sampling plan approved by the Commission and based on the risk-based methodology established in Article 76(1) of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 404/2011 of 8 April 2011 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 establishing a Community control system for ensuring compliance with the rules of the Common Fisheries Policy(2) in conjunction with Annex XIX to the same Regulation.

(2) Pursuant to Article 60(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 Member States may permit fisheries products to be weighed on board the fishing vessel, by way of derogation from the general weighing obligation established in Article 60(1), and provided the Member State has adopted a sampling plan as referred to in Article 60(1), approved by the Commission and based on the risk-based methodology established in Article 76(2) of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 404/2011 in conjunction with Annex XX to the same Regulation.

(3) Pursuant to Article 61(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009 Member States may permit fisheries products to be weighed after transport from the place of landing provided that they are transported to a destination on the territory of the Member State concerned and that this Member State has adopted a control plan approved by the Commission and based on the risk-based methodology established in Article 77(1) of Implementing Regulation (EU) No 404/2011 in conjunction with Annex XXI to the same Regulation.

(4) Sampling plans of Germany (14.11.2011), Ireland (7.11.2011), Lithuania (11.1.2012), the Netherlands (18.1.2012), Poland (5.3.2012), Finland (7.11.2011) and the United Kingdom (15.12.2011) and control plans of Germany (14.11.2011), Estonia (15.12.2011), Ireland (7.11.2011), Poland (5.3.2012), Finland (7.11.2011) and the United Kingdom (15.12.2011) have been submitted to the Commission for approval. They are in line with the relevant risk-based methodologies. They should therefore be approved.

(5) This Decision constitutes the approval decision within the meaning of Article 60(1) and (3) and Article 61(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1224/2009.

(6) The Commission needs to monitor the application of the sampling plans and control plans both with respect to their effective operation as well as to their regular review by the Member State concerned. For that reason Member States should report to the Commission on the application of these plans,
