THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/425/EEC of 26 June 1990 concerning veterinary and zootechnical checks applicable in intra-Community trade in certain live animals and products with a view to the completion of the internal market(1), as last amended by Directive 92/118/EEC(2), and in particular Article 10 thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 89/662/EEC of 11 December 1989 concerning veterinary checks in intra-Community trade with a view to the completion of the internal market(3), as last amended by Directive 92/118/EEC, and in particular Article 9 thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Following the reports of outbreaks of foot-and-mouth disease in the United Kingdom, the Commission adopted Decision 2001/172/EC concerning certain protection measures with regard to foot-and-mouth disease in the United Kingdom(4), as last amended by Decision 2001/190/EC(5).

(2) Outbreaks of foot-and-mouth disease have been declared in France the Commission adopted Decision 2001/208/EC(6).

(3) Outbreaks of foot-and-mouth disease have been declared in the Netherlands.

(4) The foot-and-mouth disease situation in certain parts of the Netherlands is liable to endanger the herds in other parts of the territory of the Netherlands and in other Member States in view of the placing on the market and trade in live biungulate animals and certain of their products.

(5) The Netherlands have taken measures in the framework of Council Directive 85/511/EEC of 18 November 1985 introducing Community measures for the control of foot-and-mouth disease(7), as last amended by the Act of Accession of Austria, Finland and Sweden, and furthermore has introduced further measures within the affected areas, including the measures laid down in Decision 2001/172/EC.

(6) The disease situation in the Netherlands requires reinforcing the control measures for foot-and-mouth disease taken by the Netherlands by adopting, in close cooperation with the Member State concerned, additional Community protective measures.

(7) Certain categories of treated products of animal origin do not present a risk of spreading the disease, it appeared therefore appropriate to include provisions allowing trade in such products under the conditions that adequate certification is ensured.

(8) The situation shall be reviewed at the meeting of the Standing Veterinary Committee scheduled for 27 March 2001 and the measures adapted where necessary.

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