Having regard to Council Decision 97/132/EC of 17 December 1996 on the conclusion of the Agreement between the European Community and New Zealand on sanitary measures applicable to trade in live animals and animal products (1), and in particular the third paragraph of Article 3 thereof,

Council Decision 2002/957/EC of 28 November 2002 on the conclusion of an Agreement in the form of an Exchange of Letters concerning the amendment to the Annexes to the Agreement between the European Community and New Zealand on sanitary measures applicable to trade in live animals and animal products (2), provided for the possibility of recognising the equivalence of the New Zealand certification systems for fresh meat and meat-based products and for other animal products.

(2)

The Joint Management Committee for the Agreement established under Article 16 of the Agreement (‘the Committee’), at its meeting on 1 and 2 June 2004, issued a recommendation concerning the determination of equivalence of sanitary requirements for bovine embryos, feathered game, live bivalve molluscs for human consumption, honey and wool.

(3)

As a result of those recommendations it is appropriate to amend Annex V to the Agreement.

(4)

Those amendments should be approved on behalf of the Community.

Article 2
The Director-General for Health and Consumer Protection is hereby empowered to sign the Agreement in the form of an Exchange of Letters in order to bind the Community.
