COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2015/1084

of 18 February 2015

approving on behalf of the European Union certain amendments to Annexes II, V, VII and VIII to the Agreement between the European Community and New Zealand on sanitary measures applicable to trade in live animals and animal products

(notified under document C(2015) 797)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Decision 97/132/EC of 17 December 1996 on the conclusion of the Agreement between the European Community and New Zealand on sanitary measures applicable to trade in live animals and animal products (1), and in particular the third paragraph of Article 3 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The Agreement between the European Community and New Zealand on sanitary measures applicable to trade in live animals and animal products (‘the Agreement’) provides for the possibility of recognising equivalence for sanitary measures after the exporting Party has objectively demonstrated that its measures achieve the importing Party's appropriate level of protection (‘the Parties’).

(2)

The Agreement was duly approved by Decision 97/132/EC which also provides that amendments to the Annexes thereto which are the result of the recommendations by the Joint Management Committee should be adopted according to the procedure referred to in Council Directive 72/462/EEC (2). Directive 72/462/EEC was repealed by Council Directive 2004/68/EC (3). Recital 10 of Directive 2004/68/EC states that the public health and official control rules which apply to meat and meat products by virtue of Directive 72/462/EEC have been replaced by those of Regulation (EC) No 854/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4). That recital also states that the other rules of Directive 72/462/EEC have been replaced by Council Directive 2002/99/EC (5) and by Directive 2004/68/EC.

(3)

New Zealand restructured its competent authorities in 2010 and the new competent authority is now the Ministry for Primary Industries. The Union proposed a slight amendment to the definition of the roles of the Member States and the Commission. The Parties recommended updating Annex II to the Agreement to reflect these changes.

(4)

The Parties recommended making changes to the definitions of the different equivalence status, notably on the ‘Yes-1’ status in the Glossary of Annex V to the Agreement, where a link to the model attestation in Section 1(a) of Annex VII thereto on certification was made. The Parties also wished to provide for a legal basis for the Union to use the integrated electronic system of the Union provided for in Commission Decision 2003/24/EC (6) (‘TRACES’) for laying down the import certificates for ‘Yes-1’ products from New Zealand. This use will allow for more rapid certification updates, as well as for further use of electronic certification. The Parties further recommended including definitions for TRACES and the electronic system of New Zealand (E-cert) and updating the names of certain animal diseases listed in the Glossary of Annex V to the Agreement.

(5)

New Zealand carried out a new risk assessment for the import of bovine semen and embryos. As a result, epizootic haemorrhagic disease is no longer considered a disease of significance for bovine semen and New Zealand has removed its import conditions. Furthermore, the conditions on Q-fever and bovine viral diarrhoea (type II) were revised by New Zealand. The Parties therefore recommended amending Chapter 1 on ‘Semen’ and Chapter 2 on ‘Embryos’ of Section 1 and Chapter 28 on ‘Miscellaneous certification provisions’ of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement. The Parties furthermore recommended deleting, in Chapter 1 on ‘Semen’ of Section 1, the previous ‘actions’ for New Zealand exports to the Union and introducing a new ‘action’ requesting the Union to consider reviewing whether testing of semen for infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing methodology approved by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), which provides an equivalent assurance to IBR disease freedom. It is therefore appropriate to amend the special conditions in Chapters 1 and 2 of Section 1 and the relevant certification provisions in Chapter 28 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement.

(6)

In relation to live bees, the Union has adopted new legislation for the listing of Member States or regions free of varroosis in bees and to which trade restrictions apply. These apply also to imports from New Zealand, as it is not free of that disease. The Parties recommended adding, in Chapter 3 on ‘Live animals’ of Section 1 of Annex V to the Agreement, for live bees and bumble bees including ‘bee/bumble bee germplasm’ set out under special conditions, an export restriction to Member States or regions thereof listed in the Annex to Commission Implementing Decision 2013/503/EU (7). The Union has also amended its import conditions for American foul brood in Commission Decision 2010/270/EU (8). The Parties therefore also recommended amending Chapter 28 on ‘Miscellaneous certification provisions’ of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement.

(7)

For the reasons of consistency with Chapter 4.B on ‘Fresh Poultry Meat’ of Section 2 of Annex V to the Agreement, the Parties agreed to amend the Title of Section 2 in Annex V thereto, by including the word ‘fresh’ before poultry meat.

(8)

New Zealand conducted a risk assessment on porcine respiratory reproductive syndrome (PRRS) and amended its import conditions for pig meat. The Parties therefore recommended adding PRRS under the special conditions of Chapter 4.A on ‘Fresh Meat’ of Section 2 of Annex V to the Agreement, on animal health, pigs for exports from the Union to New Zealand and laying down the relevant attestations in Chapter 28 of Section 5 of Annex V thereto.

(9)

New Zealand revised its rules on carton handling in meat in 2010. The Union evaluated those new rules and determined that they are equivalent to Union rules. The Parties agreed therefore to maintain equivalence, while no change to Annex V to the Agreement is necessary.

(10)

New Zealand revised its meat inspection system for bovines and ovine and caprine in 2012. The main changes relate to transferring quality related meat inspection tasks to the food business operator, while keeping the overall supervision under the competent authority. The Union evaluated those new rules and determined that they are equivalent to Union rules. The Parties agreed therefore to maintain equivalence, while no change to Annex V to the Agreement is necessary.

(11)

New Zealand conducted a science based risk assessment on raw milk products and established import requirements and legal mechanisms to recognise equivalence for unpasteurised milk products (excluding raw milk). The Union studied that assessment and both Parties concluded and recommended recognising reciprocal equivalence on these products in 2010. For consistency and simplification, the Parties recommended replacing, in Chapter 8 on ‘Milk and milk products for human consumption’ of Section 3 of Annex V to the Agreement, the subtypes ‘Soft raw milk cheeses’ and ‘Hard raw milk cheeses (Parmesan)’ with a new subtype ‘Unpasteurised milk products (excluding raw milk)’ set to a ‘Yes-1’ status without any special conditions.

(12)

The Union revised its rules on testing methods for detecting marine biotoxins in live bivalve molluscs in Commission Regulation (EU) No 15/2011 (9). New Zealand submitted to the Union equivalence dossiers on its biotoxin testing methodology and approval criteria in the years 2003, 2006 and 2010. After evaluation, the Parties determined that each other's systems are equivalent, while no change to Annex V to the Agreement is necessary.

(13)

The Union undertook a major review of its animal by-products (‘ABP’) legislation. Regulation (EC) No 1774/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council (10) was repealed and replaced by Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council (11) and Commission Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 (12). Based on an assessment on the maintenance of equivalence, the Parties concluded that the equivalence status for ABP for New Zealand exports to the Union, as well as for Union exports to New Zealand under the Agreement, is not affected by the new Union legislation and no change to Annex V thereto is necessary.

(14)

As regards the amendment of Regulation (EC) No 1774/2002 by Commission Regulation (EC) No 668/2004 (13) adding flavouring innards and fat derivatives as a separate commodity, the Parties recommended adding flavouring innards as a listed commodity in Chapter 21 on ‘Petfood (includes processed) containing only category 3 material’ of Section 4 of Annex V to the Agreement. The Parties recommended setting for animal and public health a ‘Yes-3’ status for New Zealand exports to the Union and an ‘NE’ status for Union exports to New Zealand.

(15)

The Parties recommended amending the Title of Chapter 27 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement from ‘Definitions’ to ‘Horizontal issues’, while deleting all subchapters of that Chapter.

(16)

The Subchapter ‘Certification Systems’ of Chapter 27 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement clarifies the type of commodities to which certification systems equivalence applies. The Parties recommended moving this clarification on the type of commodities from the column ‘Special conditions’ column to the column ‘Equivalence’ of that Subchapter, without introducing any changes.

(17)

The Parties recommended inserting in Chapter 27 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement, a subchapter on provisions for the re-export of imported products where the product originates from a third country and from establishment(s) authorised for export the product to both the Union and New Zealand. This provision is currently provided for in Annex VII to Commission Decision 2003/56/EC (14).

(18)

Based on an assessment, the Parties concluded that, for products where equivalence ‘Yes-1’ is established, both Parties' microbiological monitoring and testing systems for fishery and dairy products were equivalent, though acknowledged that the microbiological criteria may differ. The responsibility for meeting the specific importing Parties' food safety criteria is with the exporting operators. The Parties recommended including, in Chapter 27 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement, a subchapter on provisions on a microbiological monitoring and testing system. These provisions also apply to the meat sector, based on the equivalence status previously agreed by the Parties.

(19)

Based on an evaluation, the Parties concluded that each Party' systems for listing establishments are equivalent. The Parties therefore recommended laying down, in Chapter 27 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement, a subchapter on provisions for a simplified listing procedure for New Zealand establishments producing animal products for export to the Union. This applies to products where equivalence is established on public health.

(20)

The Union amended its import conditions on bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in Regulation (EC) No 999/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council (15). To reflect those amendments, the Parties recommended updating Chapter 28 on ‘Miscellaneous certification provisions’ of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement.

(21)

Rather than listing Member States and regions thereof free from IBR and with approved control programmes in place in Chapter 28 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement, the Parties recommended that Chapter 28 refers to Commission Decision 2004/558/EC (16), which recognises and lists those Member States and regions thereof.

(22)

Rather than listing Member States and regions thereof with free from Aujeszky's disease and with approved control programmes in place in Chapter 28 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement, the Parties recommended that Chapter 28 refers to Commission Decision 2008/185/EC (17) which recognises and lists those Member States and regions thereof.

(23)

The Parties recommended adding a certificate attestation in Chapter 28 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement, for classical swine fever (CSF) for products from feral pigs exported from the Union to New Zealand.

(24)

In the interests of consistency with Chapter 28 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement, the Parties recommended using the term ‘attestation’ throughout the table of Chapter 29 on ‘Mutually agreed disease control measures’ in that Annex.

(25)

The Parties recommended splitting Chapter 29 of Section 5 of Annex V to the Agreement, into two Subchapters, ‘29.A. Mutually agreed disease status for specific diseases’, incorporating the existing Chapter 29, and a new Subchapter ‘29.B. Mutually agreed disease control measures in the event of the occurrence of a specific disease’.

(26)

As regards Article 6 of the Agreement, namely ‘Adaption to Regional Conditions’, the Parties recommended including, in Subchapter 29.B of Section 5 of Annex V thereto, the common trade conditions for certain animal products in the event of the occurrence of a specific disease in each other's territories.

(27)

To simplify certification in Annex VII to the Agreement and to facilitate the move to electronic certification, the Parties recommended amending Section 1 of that Annex to provide for the possibility to reduce the number of model certificates through minimising the number of required attestations. Furthermore, the Parties recommended that the need to include the legislative references of the exporting Party, as provided for in Annex V to the Agreement, should be at the discretion of the importing Party.

(28)

The Parties clarified that the model health attestation, as laid down in Section 1 of Annex VII to the Agreement, may be used when a live animal or product has equivalence ‘Yes (1)’ on public health or animal health only, without the need for certification equivalence. Consequently, the Parties recommended amendments to Section 1 of that Annex, including to the provision for the model attestation to be used on certificates issued after the date of departure, such that its use be limited to live animals and products for which certification systems equivalence has been determined in Chapter 27 of Section 5 of Annex V thereto.

(29)

The Parties recommended laying down, in Section 1 of Annex VII, the legal basis for certain optional additional provisions laid down in Annex V to the Agreement, to be included in the certificate. This amendment relates to additional attestations described in Chapter 28 of Section 5 of that Annex and, for Union exports to New Zealand, the additional attestation ‘the animal product is eligible for intra-Union trade without restriction’.

(30)

To simplify certification in Section 2 of Annex VII to the Agreement, and to facilitate the shift to electronic certification, the Parties recommended removing the need for certificates to include the explanatory notes providing guidance for completion, as well as the need to include attestations that are irrelevant to the consignment. Furthermore, the Parties recommended that minor amendments to be made to the format of the model certificate are permitted.

(31)

Both Parties have developed electronic certification systems, as well as a link enabling data transfer between the New Zealand E-cert and the Union TRACES systems, thereby enabling certification to be provided electronically for New Zealand products exported to the Union. As that electronic certification provides equivalent guarantees to paper based certification, the Parties recommended amending Annex VII to the Agreement to provide the legal mechanism necessary to allow for the exclusive use of electronic certification.

(32)

The Parties re-evaluated the frontier checks of live animals and animal products laid down in Section A of Annex VIII to the Agreement. The Parties recommended laying down the level of identity checks to 100 % whereby this rate may be applied by the Parties in a discretionary way. The Parties further recommended laying down a legal basis for delegating the activities for the frontier checks to a responsible person or agency. Based on the high level of performance and reliability in bilateral trade, the Parties recommended reducing the frequency rate of physical checks for animal products for human consumption from 2 % to 1 %. The Parties further clarified that live animals for human consumption are in the same category as animal products for human consumption in relation to the testing frequency for physical checks and therefore recommended adding ‘Live animals’ before ‘animal products for human consumption’ in Chapter 2 on ‘Physical checks’, now amended into ‘Physical checks (including random or targeted)’ of Section A of that Annex.

(33)

After a re-evaluation of the inspection fees for border checks, the Parties recommended updating these fees in Section B of Annex VIII to the Agreement. For New Zealand exports to the Union, the Parties recommended that the inspection fees be applied in accordance with Annex V to Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council (18) with a reduction of 22,5 %. This reduction rate is calculated on the assumption that the rate of the physical checks for New Zealand imports is only 10 % of the normal physical checks rate applied to other third countries and assuming that the costs for physical checks account for 25 % of the total fees costs. For Union exports to New Zealand, there is a differentiation between consignments where documentary and identity checks are carried out and those where additionally physical checks are carried out. There is further laid down an inflation adjustment for New Zealand's inspection fees.

(34)

Due to changes to the laws of both Parties, the legislative references within the Annexes to the Agreement are out-of-date. Both Parties therefore recommended updating the legislation references of the Union and New Zealand in those Annexes.

(35)

When referring to those proposed amendments to Annexes II, V, VII and VIII to the Agreement, at its meetings and conference calls on 30-31 March 2009, 24 June 2010, 24 March 2011, 29-30 May 2012 and 12 December 2013, the Joint Management Committee recommended that they be made.

(36)

As a result of those recommendations, it is appropriate to amend the relevant provisions in Annexes II, V, VII and VIII to the Agreement.

(37)

Pursuant to Article 16 of the Agreement, amendments to the Annexes are agreed jointly, which may be done by correspondence in an Exchange of Letters between the Parties.

(38)

Accordingly, the recommended amendments to Annexes II, V, VII and VIII to the Agreement should be approved on behalf of the Union.

(39)

Pursuant to Article 18(3) of the Agreement, agreed amendments of the Annexes to the Agreement should enter into force on the first day of the month following the date on which the Parties notified each other in writing that their respective internal procedures for the approval of amendments have been completed.

(40)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed.

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

Pursuant to the recommendations made by the Joint Management Committee established under Article 16 of the Agreement between the European Community and New Zealand on sanitary measures applicable to trade in live animals and animal products, the amendments to Annexes II, V, VII and VIII to that Agreement are hereby approved on behalf of the European Union.
