Amendment 4
Anja Hazekamp, Stefan Eck

Proposal for a regulation
Recital 4

Text proposed by the Commission

(4) Regulation (EC) No 1007/2009 also allows, by way of exception, the placing on the market of seal products where the hunt is conducted with the sole purpose of sustainable management of marine resources. While recognizing the importance of hunts for the purpose of sustainable management of marine resources, in practice, however, these hunts may be difficult to distinguish from the large hunts conducted primarily for commercial purposes. This may lead to unjustified discrimination between the seal products concerned. Therefore, this exception should no longer be provided for. This is without prejudice to the right of Member States to continue regulating hunts conducted for the purposes of management of marine resources.

Amendment

(4) Regulation (EC) No 1007/2009 also allows, by way of exception, the placing on the market of seal products where the hunt is conducted with the sole purpose of sustainable management of marine resources. While recognizing the importance of hunts for the purpose of sustainable management of marine resources, in practice, however, these hunts may be difficult to distinguish from the large hunts conducted primarily for commercial purposes. This may lead to unjustified discrimination between the seal products concerned. Therefore, this exception should no longer be provided for and Commission Regulation 737/2010 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1007/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on trade in seal products should be amended accordingly. This is without prejudice to the right of Member States to continue regulating hunts conducted for the purposes of management of marine resources.

Justification

The MRM exception is listed in Article 5 of Commission Regulation 737/2010 laying down detailed rules for the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1007/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council. Should this exception no longer be provided for, it is logical that the implementing Regulation is to be amended accordingly.
