(notified under document number C(2001) 1557)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2001/416/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/425/EEC of 26 June 1990 concerning veterinary and zootechnical checks applicable in intra-Community trade in certain live animals and products with a view to the completion of the internal market(1), as last amended by Directive 92/118/EEC(2), and in particular Article 10 thereof,

Whereas:

(1) The foot-and-mouth disease situation in certain parts of the Community is liable to endanger the herds in other parts of the Community in view of the placing on the market and trade in live biungulate animals.

(2) All Member States have implemented the restrictions to the movement of animals of susceptible species laid down in Commission Decision 2001/327/EC of 24 April 2001 concerning restrictions to the movement of animals of susceptible species with regard to foot-and mouth disease and repealing Decision 2001/263/EC(3), as last amended by Decision 2001/394/EC(4).

(3) It appears appropriate to maintain the restrictions, but to allow movement through staging points for animals of susceptible species for breeding and in the case of bovine and porcine animals also for production, taking into account the requirements for health and identifications standards applicable to intra-Community trade in such animals.

(4) The situation shall be reviewed at the meeting of the Standing Veterinary Committee scheduled for 5 and 6 June 2001 and the measures adapted where necessary.

(5) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Veterinary Committee,
