Whereas, in addition, the responsible veterinary authorities of Honduras have confirmed that Honduras has for at least 12 months been free from rinderpest and foot and mouth disease, and that no vaccination has been carried out against these diseases during that time;

Whereas the responsible veterinary authorities of Honduras have undertaken to notify the Commission and the Member States, by telex or telegram, within 24 hours at the latest, of the confirmation of the occurrence of any of the abovementioned diseases or the adoption of vaccination against any of them;

Whereas animal health conditions and veterinary certification must be adapted according to the animal health situation of non-member country concerned;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

1. Member States shall authorize import from Honduras of fresh meat of domestic animals of the bovine species and domestic solipeds conforming to the guarantees laid down in an animal health certificate which accords with the Annex hereto and which must accompany the consignment.
