COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2016/1782

of 5 October 2016

amending Decision 2008/185/EC as regards the inclusion of Lithuania in the list of Member States where an approved national control programme for Aujeszky's disease is in place and updating the list of national institutes in Annex III

(notified under document C(2016) 6288)

(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 applicable to trade in the Union in bovine animals and swine. In accordance with Article 5(1) of that Directive, swine are to be accompanied during transportation by a health certificate conforming to model 2 set out in Annex F to that Directive (‘model 2’). Article 9(1) of that Directive provides that a Member State which has a compulsory national control programme for the eradication of Aujeszky's disease may submit its programme to the Commission for approval. Article 9(2) lays down criteria for that approval.

(2)

Commission Decision 2008/185/EC (2) lays down the additional guarantees for movements of swine 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 that Decision lists Member States or regions thereof where approved national control programmes for the eradication of Aujeszky's disease are in place. Article 7 of Decision 2008/185/EC also specifies the information which is to be inserted in model 2, as regards the references to that Decision.

(3)

Commission Implementing Decision 2014/798/EU (3) amended Directive 64/432/EEC, including model 2. As a consequence, it is necessary to amend Article 7 of Decision 2008/185/EC.

(4)

Lithuania has submitted to the Commission supporting documentation concerning its compulsory national control programme for the eradication of Aujeszky's disease in its entire territory and applied for listing in Annex II to Decision 2008/185/EC.

(5)

Following the evaluation of the supporting documentation submitted by Lithuania, that Member State should be listed in Annex II to Decision 2008/185/EC as a Member State or region thereof where approved national control programmes for the eradication of Aujeszky's disease are in place.

(6)

Annex III to Decision 2008/185/EC lists the institutes responsible for evaluating ELISA (Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays) tests and kits, checking the quality of the ELISA method for detecting antibodies to Aujeszky's disease virus in each Member State, and in particular for producing and standardising national reference sera according to the Community reference sera. Certain Member States informed the Commission about relevant changes of the names and addresses of those listed national institutes. Annex III to Decision 2008/185/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

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

(8)

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

Decision 2008/185/EC is amended as follows:

(1)

in Article 7, paragraph 2 is replaced by the following:

‘2.   For animals of the porcine species destined for Member States or regions listed in Annex I or II, under point II.3.3.1 of Section C of the health certificate set out in model 2 of Annex F to Directive 64/432/EEC accompanying those animals the appropriate article number of this Decision shall be inserted in the empty space to be filled in under that point.’;

(2)

Annexes II and III are amended in accordance with the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 5 October 2016.
