COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 357/2010

of 23 April 2010

amending Regulation (EU) No 185/2010 of 4 March 2010 laying down detailed measures for the implementation of the common basic standards on aviation security

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 300/2008 of the European Parliament and the Council of 11 March 2008 establishing common rules in the field of civil aviation security and repealing Regulation (EC) No 2320/2002 (1) and in particular Article 4(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Regulation (EC) No 820/2008 of 8 August 2008 laying down measures for the implementation of the common basic standards on aviation security (2) contains security procedures for supplies of liquids and tamper-evident bags. However, that Regulation will be repealed as from 29 April 2010.

(2)

Commission Regulation (EU) No 185/2010 of 4 March 2010 laying down detailed measures for the implementation of the common basic standards on aviation security (3) will replace Regulation (EC) No 820/2008. Regulation (EU) No 185/2010 does not contain security procedures for supplies of liquids and tamper-evident bags.

(3)

In order to protect civil aviation against acts of unlawful interference that jeopardise the security of civil aviation, security procedures for supplies of liquids, aerosols and gels and security tamper-evident bags sold airside at Union airports should be maintained. Therefore, it is necessary to include them in Regulation (EU) No 185/2010.

(4)

Regulation (EU) No 185/2010 will apply from 29 April 2010. The entry into force of this Regulation is therefore urgent as it should apply from the same date.

(5)

Regulation (EU) No 185/2010 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Civil Aviation Security set up by Article 19(1) of Regulation (EC) No 300/2008,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The Annex to Regulation (EU) No 185/2010 is amended as set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from 29 April 2010.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 23 April 2010.
