Commission Directive 2009/118/EC

of 9 September 2009

amending Annexes II to V to Council Directive 2000/29/EC on protective measures against the introduction into the Community of organisms harmful to plants or plant products and against their spread within the Community

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 2000/29/EC of 8 May 2000 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), and in particular points (c) and (d) of the second paragraph of Article 14 thereof,

After consulting the Member States concerned,

Whereas:

(1) Directive 2000/29/EC provides for certain zones to be recognised as protected zones.

(2) Certain regions and parts of regions in Austria were recognised for a limited time as protected zones with respect to Erwinia amylovora (Burr.) Winsl. et al. by Commission Regulation (EC) No 690/2008(2). Austria has submitted information showing that Erwinia amylovora (Burr.) Winsl. et al. is now established on its territory. Those regions and parts of regions should therefore no longer be recognised as protected zones.

(3) In Greece, Crete and Lesvos were recognised as protected zones with respect to Cryphonectria parasitica (Murrill) Barr. Greece has submitted information showing that Cryphonectria parasitica (Murrill) Barr is now established in those regions. Crete and Lesvos should therefore no longer be recognised as protected zones in respect of that harmful organism.

(4) As a result of previous amendments some of the cross-references and a reference to a protected zone in Annex IV to Directive 2000/29/EC have become obsolete and should be deleted.

(5) Certain codes of wood and articles of wood of the Combined Nomenclature have been amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No 1031/2008(3). It is necessary to adapt Directive 2000/29/EC to those technical developments.

(6) Annexes II to V to Directive 2000/29/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7) The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plant Health,
