Having regard to Council Directive 2005/94/EC of 20 December 2005 on Community measures for the control of avian influenza and repealing Directive 92/40/EEC (21), and in particular Article 51(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Intra-Community trade in certain live animals and their products is only permitted from establishments that comply with the relevant provisions of Community law and are approved for that purpose by the competent authority of the Member State where they are located.

(2)

Council Directive 2008/73/EC of 15 July 2008 simplifying procedures of listing and publishing information in the veterinary and zootechnical fields (22) provides that Member States are to draw up, keep up to date and make the lists of approved establishments in the veterinary and zootechnical fields available to the other Member States and to the public.

(3)

In addition, Directive 2008/73/EC lays down that Member States have the responsibility to provide to the other Member States and to the public up-to-date information concerning national reference laboratories and certain other laboratories that they have designated in accordance with the relevant provisions of Community law.

(4)

In order to facilitate access by the other Member States and by the public to the lists of approved establishments and laboratories, the lists should be made electronically available by Member States by means of Internet-based information pages.

(5)

The Commission should assist Member States in making those lists available to the other Member States and to the public by providing the Internet address of a website which shall display national links to Internet-based information pages of the Member States.

(6)

In order to facilitate the exchange of information by electronic means between Member States, and to ensure transparency and comprehensibility, it is important that lists are presented in a uniform way throughout the Community. Models of the layout of the Internet-based information pages should therefore be set out in the Annexes to this Decision.

(7)

In the case of equidae, the format of the list of approved or recognised bodies maintaining or establishing studbooks to be drawn up in accordance with Article 5 of Directive 90/427/EEC should also provide the information required in accordance with Article 22 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 504/2008 of 6 June 2008 implementing Council Directives 90/426/EEC and 90/427/EEC as regards methods for the identification of equidae (23) and should be easily adaptable for the listing of other bodies issuing identification documents for registered equidae or equidae for breeding and production.

(8)

By reference to Article 2(2)(o) of Directive 64/432/EEC, Article 7(1) of Council Directive 90/426/EEC of 26 June 1990 on animal health conditions governing the movement and imports from third countries of equidae (24) implies the obligation of listing assembly centres approved for trade in equidae including markets or marshalling centres.

(9)

Directive 2008/73/EC is to be transposed by the Member States by 1 January 2010 at the latest. Accordingly, the Internet-based information pages should be made available by that date.

(10)

Commission Decision 2007/846/EC of 6 December 2007 establishing a model for the lists of entities approved by Member States in accordance with various provisions of Community veterinary legislation, and the rules applying to the transmission of these lists to the Commission (25), establishes a common model for the lists of certain entities approved by Member States and the rules applying to the transmission of these lists.

(11)

In the interests of clarity of Community legislation, Decision 2007/846/EC should be repealed and replaced by this Decision.

(12)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health and the Standing Committee on Zootechnics,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
