COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2019/636
of 23 April 2019
amending Annexes IV and V to Regulation (EC) No 850/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council on persistent organic pollutants
THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,
Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,
Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 850/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 on persistent organic pollutants and amending Directive 79/117/EEC (1), and in particular Article 7(4)(a) and (5) and Article 14(2) and (4) thereof,
(1). Regulation (EC) No 850/2004 implements in the law of the Union the commitments set out in the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (hereinafter 'the Convention') approved on behalf of the Community by Council Decision 2006/507/EC (2), and in the Protocol to the 1979 Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution on Persistent Organic Pollutants approved on behalf of the Community by Council Decision 2004/259/EC (3).
(2). At the seventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention from 4 to 15 May 2015, it was agreed to include pentachlorophenol and its salts and esters (hereinafter 'pentachlorophenol') in Annex A (elimination) to the Convention.
(3). In view of the amendment of the Convention, it is necessary to amend Annexes IV and V to Regulation (EC) No 850/2004, including pentachlorophenol in the annexes and indicating the corresponding concentration limits, in order to ensure that wastes containing pentachlorophenol are managed in accordance with the provisions of the Convention.
(4). The proposed concentration limits in Annexes IV and V to Regulation (EC) No 850/2004 have been set applying the same methodology that was used for establishing the limit values in previous amendments of Annexes IV and V (4). The proposed concentration limits are considered the most appropriate to ensure a high level of protection of human health and the environment in view of the destruction or irreversible transformation of pentachlorophenol.
(5). It is appropriate to provide for a sufficient period of time to allow companies and competent authorities to adapt to the new requirements.
(6). The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the committee established by Article 39 of Directive 2008/98/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (5), HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
Annexes IV and V to Regulation (EC) No 850/2004 are amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.
This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
It shall apply from 31 October 2019.
This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.
Done at Brussels, 23 April 2019.
