THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 72/462/EEC of 12 December 1972 on health and veterinary inspection problems upon importation of bovine, ovine and caprine animals and swine, fresh meat or meat products from third countries(1), as last amended by Council Directive 97/79/EC(2), and in particular Articles 21(a) and 22 thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Commission Decision 97/222/EC(3), as amended by Decision 1999/62/EC(4), lays down the list of third countries from which the Member States authorise the importation of meat products.

(2) This list must be updated in order to take into account the health situation in the exporting third countries; it is therefore necessary to correct the country code for Brazil; furthermore, in view of the presence of CSF in parts of the Czech Republic, to require heat treatment at 70 °C to pigmeat products derived from wild; and to require the same heat treatment at 70 °C to pigmeat products coming from Yugoslavia in order to be consistent with the EC animal health rules.

(3) Decision 97/222/EC must be amended accordingly.

(4) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Veterinary Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

1. part I is replaced by part I of Annex to the present Decision;
