REGOLAMENTO (CE) N. 2692/98 DELLA COMMISSIONE del 14 dicembre 1998 che modifica l'allegato II del regolamento (CEE) n. 2377/90 del Consiglio che definisce la procedura comunitaria per la determinazione dei limiti massimi di residui di medicinali veterinari negli alimenti di origine animale (Testo rilevante ai fini del SEE)
COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 2692/98 of 14 December 1998 amending Annex II to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2377/90 laying down a Community procedure for the establishment of maximum residue limits of veterinary medicinal products in foodstuffs of animal origin (Text with EEA relevance)
THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,
Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,
Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2377/90 of 26 June 1990 laying down a Community procedure for the establishment of maximum residue limits of veterinary medicinal products in foodstuffs of animal origin (1), as last amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No 2686/98 (2), and in particular Articles 6, 7 and 8 thereof,
Whereas, in accordance with Regulation (EEC) No 2377/90, maximum residue limits must be established progressively for all pharmacologically active substances which are used within the Community in veterinary medicinal products intended for administration to food-producing animals;
Whereas maximum residue limits should be established only after the examination within the Committee for Veterinary Medicinal Products of all the relevant information concerning the safety of residues of the substance concerned for the consumer of foodstuffs of animal origin and the impact of residues on the industrial processing of foodstuffs;
Whereas, in establishing maximum residue limits for residues of veterinary medicinal products in foodstuffs of animal origin, it is necessary to specify the animal species in which residues may be present, the levels which may be present in each of the relevant meat tissues obtained from the treated animal (target tissue) and the nature of the residue which is relevant for the monitoring of residues (marker residue;;
Whereas, for the control of residues, as provided for in appropriate Community legislation, maximum residue limits should usually be established for the target tissues of liver or kidney; whereas, however, the liver and kidney are frequently removed from carcases moving in international trade, and maximum residue limits should therefore also always be established for muscle or fat tissues;
Whereas, in the case of veterinary medicinal products intended for use in laying birds, lactating animals or honey bees, maximum residue limits must also be established for eggs, milk or honey;
Whereas manganese sulphate, manganese ribonucleate, manganese pidolate, manganese oxide, manganese glycerophosphate, manganese gluconate, manganese chloride and manganese carbonate should be inserted into Annex II to Regulation (EEC) No 2377/90;
Whereas a period of 60 days should be allowed before the entry into force of this Regulation in order to allow Member States to make any adjustment which may be necessary to the authorisations to place the veterinary medicinal products concerned on the market which have been granted in accordance with Council Directive 81/851/EEC (3), as last amended by Directive 93/40/EEC (4) to take account of the provisions of this Regulation;
Whereas the measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Veterinary Medicinal Products,
HA ADOTTATO IL PRESENTE REGOLAMENTO:
L'allegato II del regolamento (CEE) n. 2377/90 è sostituito dal testo dell'allegato al presente regolamento.
Il presente regolamento entra in vigore il sessantesimo giorno successivo alla pubblicazione nella Gazzetta ufficiale delle Comunità europee.
