        the provision of assistance to the European Food Safety Authority in its evaluation of the draft assessment report in accordance with Article 11, and

        the consideration of the Commission's draft directive or decision in accordance with Article 12

    for which a fee of Ј5,000 is set.

The steps for which fees are continued are:

    the administrative treatment and checking of data lists under Article 6 of the Commission Regulation and for conducting completeness checks of dossiers in accordance with Article 9 of that Regulation (Ј5,000); and
