THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 72/462/EEC of 12 December 1972 on health and veterinary inspection problems upon importation of bovine, ovine and caprine animals and swine, fresh meat or meat products from third countries (1), as last amended by Regulation (EEC) No 1601/92 (2), and in particular Articles 3, 4, 8, 11, 14 and 16 thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 88/407/EEC of 14 June 1988 laying down the animal health requirements applicable to intra-Community trade in and imports of deep frozen semen of domestic animals of the bovine species (3), as last amended by Directive 93/60/EEC (4), and in particular Articles 8 and 9 thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 89/556/EEC of 25 September 1989 on animal health conditions governing intra-Community trade in and importation from third countries of embryos of domestic animals of the bovine species (5), as last amended by Directive 93/52/EEC (6), and in particular Articles 8, 9 and 10 thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/426/EEC of 26 June 1990 on animal health conditions governing the movement and imports from third countries of equidae (7), as last amended by Directive 92/36/EEC (8), and in particular Articles 15a, 16, 18 and 19 (ii) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/675/EEC of 10 December 1990 laying down the principles governing the organization of veterinary checks on products entering the Community from third countries (9), as last amended by Directive 92/118/EEC (10), and in particular Article 19 thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/429/EEC of 26 June 1990 laying down the animal health requirements applicable to intra-Community trade in and imports of semen of domestic animals of the porcine species (11), and in particular Articles 7, 9 (2) and 10 (2) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 91/496/EEC of 15 July 1991 laying down the principles governing the organization of veterinary checks on animals entering the Community from third countries and amending Directives 89/662/EEC, 90/425/EEC and 90/675/EEC (12), as last amended by Decision 92/438/EEC (13), and in particular Article 18 thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 92/118/EEC of 17 December 1992 laying down animal health and public health requirements governing trade in and imports into the Community of products not subject to the said requirements laid down in specific Community rules referred to in Annex A (I) to Directive 89/662/EEC and as regards pathogens, to Directive 90/425/EEC (14), and in particular Article 10 (2) thereof,

Whereas an agreement on the European Economic Area has been concluded on the 13 December 1993 between the European Communities, their Member States and the Republic of Austria, the Republic of Finland, the Republic of Iceland, the Principality of Liechtenstein, the Kingdom of Norway and the Kingdom of Sweden (15);

Whereas in the veterinary field and in order to enable the EFTA Surveillance Authority to take the necessary measures, the provisions of this Agreement apply only from 1 July 1994;

Whereas in the framework of this Agreement, Austria, Finland, Norway and Sweden apply some Community veterinary provisions laying down animal health and public health conditions governing trade in certain live animals and animal products; whereas, therefore, some Community provisions laying down animal health and public health requirements for imports from third countries will not apply to these countries any more;

Whereas account must be taken so that the Community third country regime for ovine and caprine animals remains applicable for imports from Austria, Finland and Norway;

Whereas, in this context, it is necessary to repeal the specific rules applying to Austria, Finland, Norway and Sweden and to amend other detailed rules applying to third countries including these four countries;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Veterinary Committee,
