COMMISSION DECISION

of 26 July 1990

concerning animal health conditions and veterinary certification for the importation of fresh meat from Turkey

(90/445/EEC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 72/462/EEC of 12 December 1972 on health and veterinary inspection problems upon importation of bovine animals and swine and fresh meat or meat products from third countries (1), as last amended by Directive 89/662/EEC (2), and in particular Article 16 thereof,

Whereas, following a Community veterinary mission and information supplied by the Turkish veterinary authorities, it appears that the animal health situation of domestic solipeds in Turkey is generally satisfactory particularly as regards diseases transmissible through meat; whereas, however, glanders may be present in domestic solipeds in Turkey intended for slaughter;

Whereas it is desirable to provide measures to safeguard the meat of domestic solipeds with regard to glanders; whereas the Turkish veterinary authorities have given official assurances that the measures will be applied by official veterinarians according to Turkish regulations and that the domestic solipeds will be positively identified;

Whereas, it is necessary to limit importations to designated approved regions; whereas, the Turkish veterinary authorities have given assurances that no solipeds will be moved into the approved provinces without undergoing a mallein test giving a negative result;

Whereas animal health conditions and veterinary certification must be adapted according to the animal health situation of the 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. Consignments of fresh meat of domestic solipeds which are authorized by Member States for importation from the following provinces of Turkey:

Amasya, Ankara, Balikesir, Bursa, Cankiri, Corum, Denizli, Izmir, Kastamonu, Kutahya, Manisa, Usak, Yozgat and Kirikkale,

shall conform to the guarantees laid down in an animal health certificate which accords with the Annex hereto and which must accompany each consignment.

2. Member States shall not authorize the import of categories of fresh meat from Turkey other than those mentioned in paragraph 1.

Article 2

This Decision shall not apply to imports of glands and organs authorized by the country of destination for pharmaceutical manufacturing purposes.

Article 3

This Decision shall apply with effect from 1 September 1990.
