Abstract

This Regulation consists of four Chapters and an Annex. Chapter I defines the application scope. Without prejudice to the provisions applicable pursuant to Directive 2000/13/EC, the present provisions shall apply to the fishery and aquaculture products included on the lists and covered by the presentations falling within Chapter 3 of the Combined Nomenclature which are marketed within the Community, irrespective of their origin, including products which are prepackaged. Chapter II of the Regulation deals with changes to lists of commercial designations and requirements governing consumer information. For the purposes of applying Article 4(1)(a) of Regulation (EC) No. 104/2000, the commercial designation of a species shall be as established in each Member State in accordance with Article 4(2) of that Regulation. Operators may also indicate the scientific name of the species concerned upon sale to the final consumer (art. 3). Further provisions contained in article 3 regard the indication of the production method. Article 5 concerns the indication of the catch area. Chapter III regards traceability and control. In accordance with article 8, the information required concerning the commercial designation, the production method and the catch area shall be available at each stage of marketing of the species concerned. This information together with the scientific name of the species concerned shall be provided by means of the labelling or packaging of the product, or by means of a commercial document accompanying the goods, including the invoice. The Annex attached contains a table referring to the various catch areas and their respective identification codes.
