THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 92/65/EEC of 13 July 1992, laying down animal health requirements governing trade in and imports into the Community of animals, semen, ova and embryos not subject to animal health requirements laid down in specific Community rules referred to in Annex A(I) to Directive 90/425/EEC(1), and in particular Article 17(3)(b) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) The competent authorities of Australia officially informed the Commission that the approval has been withdrawn from two equine semen collection centres previously notified to the Commission in accordance with the provisions of Directive 92/65/EEC.

(2) The competent authorities of the Slovak Republic officially informed the Commission of the approval in accordance with the provisions of Directive 92/65/EEC of one equine semen collection centre.

(3) The competent authorities of the United States of America officially informed the Commission of the approval in accordance with the provisions of Directive 92/65/EEC of nine additional equine semen collection centres and of amendments to certain approval details of another four equine semen collection centres.

(5) It is necessary to take into account that the Acceding States are scheduled to join the Community as of 1 May 2004.
