COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2019/1206

of 12 July 2019

amending Part 1 of Annex E to Council Directive 92/65/EEC as regards the animal health certificate for trade in dogs, cats and ferrets

(notified under document C(2019) 5210)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Directive 92/65/EEC of 13 July 1992 laying down animal health requirements governing trade in and imports into the Community of animals, semen, ova and embryos not subject to animal health requirements laid down in specific Community rules referred to in Annex A(I) to Directive 90/425/EEC (1), and in particular the first paragraph of Article 22 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 92/65/EEC lays down the animal health requirements governing trade in and imports into the Union of certain animals. Article 10 of that Directive provides that the health requirements for trade in dogs, cats and ferrets are those set out in Article 6 and, where applicable, in Article 7 of Regulation (EU) No 576/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2).

(2)

Regulation (EU) No 576/2013 provides that where the number of dogs, cats or ferrets moved for non-commercial purposes during a single movement exceeds five, those pet animals have to comply with the animal health requirements laid down in Directive 92/65/EEC for the species concerned, except for certain categories of animals for which a derogation is provided for in Article 5(2) of that Regulation under certain conditions.

(3)

Following the mandatory review of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1152/2011 (3), the Commission adopted Delegated Regulation (EU) 2018/772 (4) which lays down, inter alia, the rules for the categorisation of Member States, or parts thereof, in view of their eligibility to apply preventive health measures for the control of Echinococcus multilocularis infection in dogs. Delegated Regulation (EU) 2018/772 repealed Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1152/2011 with effect from 1 July 2018.

(4)

The list of Member States complying with the rules for categorisation laid down in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2018/772 for the whole of their territory or parts thereof is set out in the Annex to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/878 (5).

(5)

It is therefore appropriate to replace the references to Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1152/2011 by references to Delegated Regulation (EU) 2018/772 and to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/878 in the model health certificate.

(6)

Part 1 of Annex E to Directive 92/65/EEC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

In order to avoid any disruption of trade in dogs, cats or ferrets, it is necessary to provide for a transitional period in order to allow, subject to certain conditions, for the use of model animal health certificates issued in accordance with Directive 92/65/EEC, as amended by Commission Implementing Decision 2013/518/EU (6) until 31 December 2019.

(8)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

Part 1 of Annex E to Directive 92/65/EEC is replaced by the text in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

For a transitional period until 31 December 2019, Member States shall allow, for the trade in dogs, cats and ferrets, the use of a health certificate issued not later than 30 November 2019 in accordance with the model set out in Part 1 of Annex E to Directive 92/65/EEC, as amended by Implementing Decision 2013/518/EU.

Article 3

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 12 July 2019.
