(2) Commission Decision 90/442/EEC(5), as last amended by the Decision of 17 December 1996(6), lays down the codes for the notification of animal diseases.

(5) A new web-based computer system is being introduced to allow for transfer of disease information as required by Directive 82/894/EEC.

(6) Belgium, Finland, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal and Spain have changed the numbering system of the regions used in the notification system.

(7) In order to improve the system it is necessary to allow provision for the more precise localisation of outbreaks by reference to longitude and latitude.

(8) In order to protect confidentiality of the transmitted information, the Annexes to this Decision should not be published.

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