COUNCIL DECISION

of 7 April 1987

amending Directives 64/432/EEC and 72/461/EEC as regards certain measures relating to swine fever

(87/231/CEE)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community and, in particular, Article 43 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission (1),

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (2),

Having regard to the opinion of the Economic and Social Committee (3),

Whereas Council Directive 64/432/EEC of 26 June 1964 on animal health problems affecting intra-Community trade in bovine animals and swine (4), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 3768/85 (5), defined the conditions which must be satisfied as regards classical swine fever by live pigs intended for intra-Community trade;

Whereas Council Directive 72/461/EEC of 12 December 1972 on health problems affecting intra-Community trade in fresh meat (6), as last amended by Directive 87/64/EEC (7), defines the safeguards which must be satisfied as regards classical swine fever by fresh pigmeat intended for intra-Community trade;

Whereas, as a result of national programmes to eradicate classical swine fever introduced in the framework of a Community measure, some Member States have totally eradicted the disease and can claim to be officially free of classical swine fever; whereas they should therefore be given the possibility of maintaining the status they have acquired and preventing the reappearance of the disease on their territory by strenghtening the safeguards which they enjoy as regards trade in the products concerned, in view of the adverse effects of this disease on the productivity of their pig herds and on the income of those working in this sector;

Whereas the application of these provisions shall be limited pending the Council Decision on measures to combat classical swine fever,

Such animals must bear a special mark and be intended for delivery to holdings where animals are systematically vaccinated against swine fever.'.

Article 2

Directive 72/461/EEC is hereby amended as follows:

1. In Article 13a (1) the first phrase shall be replaced by the following:
