THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 72/462/EEC of 12 December 1972 on health and veterinary inspection problems upon importation of bovine, ovine and caprine animals and swine, fresh meat and meat products from third countries(1), as last amended by Regulation (EC) No 1452/2001(2), and in particular Article 22(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) The animal health conditions and veterinary certification for the importation of fresh meat from certain European countries were established by Commission Decision 98/371/EC(3) concerning the animal health conditions and veterinary certification for imports of fresh meat from certain European countries, as last amended by Decision 2001/774/EC(4).

(3) It is appropriate, in the case of equine animals, to consider that requirement to be met if the animals have stayed for three months at least either in the country of slaughter or in another country approved for the same purpose provided that appropriate certification is given.

(4) The relevant model certificate annexed to Decision 98/371/EC must therefore be amended accordingly.

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