THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Directive 2009/156/EC of 30 November 2009 on animal health conditions governing the movement and importation from third countries of equidae (1), and in particular Article 19(b) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Decision 93/195/EEC of 2 February 1993 on animal health conditions and veterinary certification for the re-entry of registered horses for racing, competition and cultural events after temporary export (2) establishes several models of health certificates for the re-entry into the Union of registered horses temporarily exported to third countries for taking part in racing, competitions and cultural events.

(2)

The model of health certificate for re-entry into the European Union of registered horses for racing, competition and cultural events after temporary export for a period of less than 30 days is set out in Annex II to that Decision.

(3)

Commission Decision 2007/240/EC (3) laying down new veterinary certificates for importing live animals, semen, embryos, ova and products of animal origin into the Community pursuant to, inter alia, Decision 93/195/EEC establishes a standardised model of the health certificate.

(4)

It is necessary to adapt the model of health certificate in Annex II to Decision 93/195/EEC to the model provided for in Decision 2007/240/EC.

(6)

Decision 93/195/EEC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)
