THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to the Treaty of Accession of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia (1), and in particular Article 2(3) thereof,

Having regard to the Act of Accession of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia (2), and in particular Annex VIII, Chapter 4, Section B, Subsection I, point 1(d) thereto,

Whereas:

(1)

Annex VIII, Chapter 4, Section B, Subsection I, point 1(a) to the 2003 Act of Accession provides that the structural requirements laid down in Annex I to Council Directive 64/433/EEC of 26 June 1964 on health conditions affecting intra-Community trade in fresh meat (3), in Annex I to Council Directive 71/118/EEC of 15 February 1971 on health problems affecting trade in fresh poultrymeat (4), in Annexes A and B to Council Directive 77/99/EEC of21 December 1976on health problems affecting intra-Community trade in meat products (5), in Annex I to Council Directive 94/65/EC of 14 December 1994 laying down the requirements for the production and placing on the market of minced meat and meat preparations (6), in Annex B to Council Directive 92/46/EEC of 16 June 1992 laying down the health rules for the production and placing on the market of raw milk, heat-treated milk and milk-based products (7) and in the Annex to Council Directive 91/493/EEC of 22 July 1991 laying down the health conditions for the production and the placing on the market of fishery products (8) are not to apply to establishments in Latvia listed in Appendix A to Annex VIII to the Act of Accession until 31 December 2006, subject to certain conditions.

(2)

In Latvia, 12 more high-capacity meat establishments, one more poultry establishment, 13 more milk-processing establishments and 13 more fish-processing establishments have difficulties in complying with the structural requirements laid down in Annex I to Directive 64/433/EEC, in Annex I to Directive 71/118/EEC, in Annexes A and B to Directive 77/99/EEC, in Annex I to Directive 94/65/EC, in Annex B to Directive 92/46/EEC and in the Annex to Directive 91/493/EEC, by 1 May 2004.

(3)

Accordingly those 39 establishments need time to finalise their upgrading process in order to be in full compliance with the relevant structural requirements laid down in Directives 64/433/EEC, 71/118/EEC, 77/99/EEC, 94/65/EC, 92/46/EEC and 91/493/EEC.

(4)

The 39 establishments, which are currently in an advanced state of upgrading, have given reliable guarantees that they have the necessary funds to correct their remaining shortcomings within a short time and have received a favourable opinion from the Latvian Food and Veterinary Service, as regards the finalisation of their upgrading process.

(5)

For Latvia, the detailed information regarding the shortcomings for each establishment is available.

(6)

In order to facilitate the transition from the existing regime in Latvia to that resulting from the application of the Community veterinary legislation, it is justified therefore upon the request of Latvia, to grant the 39 establishments a transitional period.

(7)

Due to the advanced stage of upgrading of the 39 establishments, the transitional period should be limited to a maximum of 12 months.

(8)

The Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health has been informed of the measures provided for in this Decision,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
