Ban on some coral imports to the EU?

I have recently heard a rumor (unconfirmed) that some corals are no longer
to be imported to the EU, as per a directive from the Sept. 16 1999 meeting
in Brussels.  This list includes (but is not limited to):

Catalaphyllia jardinei
Trachyphyllia geoffroyi
Plerogyra spp. (+ Physogyra spp.)
Euphyllia divisa, E. glabrescens
Cynarima lacrymalis
Blastomussa spp.

I am writing to ask the coral-list subscribers from the EU if they can
confirm the veracity of this information.
