COMMISSION DECISION

of 10 May 1990

laying down the criteria governing entry in flock-books for pure-bred breeding sheep and goats

(90/255/EEC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 89/361/EEC of 30 May 1989 concerning pure-bred breeding sheep and goats (1), and in particular the second indent of Article 4 thereof,

Whereas in all Member States flock-books are maintained or established by breeders' organizations, or associations or official services;

Whereas it is therefore necessary to lay down the criteria for the entering of pure-breed breeding sheep and goats in flock-books;

Whereas precise conditions relating to lineage and identification must be fulfilled prior to entry in the flock-books;

Whereas allowances should be made for the division of the flock-book into different classes so that certain types of animals will not be excluded;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Zootechnics,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

To qualify for entry in the main section of the book of its breed a pure-bred breeding sheep or goat must:

be descended from parents and grandparents entered in a flock-book of that same breed,

be identified after birth according to the rules of the book,

have a pedigree established in accordance with the rules of the book.

Article 2

The main section of the flock-book may be divided into several classes according to the animals' characteristics. Only pure-bred breeding sheep and goats meeting the criteria laid down in Article 1 may be entered in one of the classes.

Article 3

1.   A breeders' organization or association keeping a flock-book may decide that a female which does not met the criteria laid down in Article 1 may be entered in an annex to the flock-book. The female must meet the following requirements:

be identified after birth in accordance with the flock-book rules,

be judged to conform to the breed standard,

have minimum characteristics as laid down by the flock-book rules.

2.   A female whose mother and maternal grandmother are entered in the annex to the flock-book as provided for in paragraph 1 and whose father and two grandfathers are entered in the main section of the book in accordance with Article 1, is regarded as a pure-bred female and entered in the main section of the book, as provided for in Article 1.

3.   The requirements mentioned in the second and third indents of paragraph 1 may be differentiated according to whether the female belongs to the breed but has no known origin or was obtained from a crossing programme approved by the breeders' organizations or associations.

Article 4

A breeder's organization or association keeping a flock-book may decide that a male which does not meet the criteria laid down in Article 1, may be entered in an annex to the flock book. The male must meet the following requirements:

be identified after birth in accordance with the flock-book rules,

be judged to conform to the breed standard,

have minimum characteristics as laid down by the flock-book rules.

fulfil the conditions laid down in the Annex hereto.

Article 5

Where a book contains several classes, a pure-bred breeding sheep or goat from another flock-book of the same breed and having specific characteristics distinguishing it from the population of the same breed in the flock-book of destination shall be entered in the section of the book whose characteristics it meets.

Article 6

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 10 May 1990.
