Whereas:

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/717 (2) lays down the model forms of zootechnical certificates for breeding animals and their germinal products. Those model forms of zootechnical certificates were drafted after consultation with the Member States and the relevant stakeholders.

(2)

Since the date of application of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/717, the Member States and stakeholders have notified the Commission of certain practical problems with the use of the model forms of zootechnical certificates, as regards the verification of the identity of breeding animals. Taking into account the experience gained since the date of application of that Implementing Regulation, the model forms of the zootechnical certificates should be amended to facilitate the verification of the identity of breeding animals. Details or the case number referring to the database where the details are available should be provided in a zootechnical certificate, in the box corresponding to results of the verification of the identity of breeding animals. Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/717 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(3)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Zootechnics,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
