A new single list

The Commission has taken a decision that brings changes to the list of countries authorised to export fishery products to the European Union. The list now includes some countries that were previously included on “list II” of countries authorised to trade with the EU by special dispensation only, by the terms of Regulation (EC) No 2076/2005 of 5 December 2005 that expired at the end of 2009.

Angola, Azerbaijan (for caviar only),  Benin, the Congo (for  fishery products caught, frozen and packed at sea only), Eritrea, Israel, Myanmar (for wild caught and frozen fishery products only),  the Salomon Islands, Saint Helena (except for Tristan Da Cunha) and Togo (for  lobsters only), obtain direct access to the EU market for the first time.  

On the other hand, the Commission considered that Cameroon and Fiji failed to meet the conditions to be included on the single list. Consequently, their fishery products cannot be exported to the EU.
