COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2017/2173

of 20 November 2017

amending Annex II to Decision 2008/185/EC as regards the approval of the control programme for the eradication of Aujeszky's disease for the region of Lombardia in Italy

(notified under document C(2017) 7587)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Directive 64/432/EEC of 26 June 1964 on animal health problems affecting intra-Community trade in bovine animals and swine (1), and in particular Article 9(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 64/432/EEC lays down rules for trade within the Union in porcine animals. Article 9 of that Directive provides that a Member State which has a compulsory national control programme for Aujeszky's disease for all or part of its territory may submit its programme to the Commission for approval. It also provides that additional guarantees may be required for intra-Union trade in porcine animals.

(2)

Commission Decision 2008/185/EC (2) lays down additional guarantees for movements of pigs between Member States. Those guarantees are linked to the classification of the Member States according to their disease status for Aujeszky's disease. Annex II to Decision 2008/185/EC lists the Member States or regions thereof where approved national control programmes for the eradication of Aujeszky's disease are in place.

(3)

Italy has submitted to the Commission supporting documentation for the approval of its control programme for the eradication of Aujeszky's disease for the region of Lombardia and for this region to be duly listed in Annex II to Decision 2008/185/EC. Following the evaluation of that supporting documentation, the region of Lombardia should be listed in Annex II to Decision 2008/185/EC. Annex II to Decision 2008/185/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(4)

Decision 2008/185/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

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

Annex II to Decision 2008/185/EC is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 20 November 2017.
