COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2020/1670

of 10 November 2020

amending the Annex to Implementing Decision (EU) 2020/1606 concerning certain interim protective measures in relation to highly pathogenic avian influenza of subtype H5N8 in the Netherlands

(notified under document C(2020) 7912)

(Only the Dutch text is authentic)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

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 (1), and in particular Article 9(3) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/425/EEC of 26 June 1990 concerning veterinary checks applicable in intra-Union trade in certain live animals and products with a view to the completion of the internal market (2), and in particular Article 10(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2020/1606 (3) was adopted following an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) of subtype H5N8 in one holding where poultry are kept in the Netherlands and the establishment of protection and surveillance zones by the competent authority of that Member State in accordance with Council Directive 2005/94/EC (4).

(2)

Implementing Decision (EU) 2020/1606 provides that the protection and surveillance zones established by the Netherlands in accordance with Directive 2005/94/EC are to comprise at least the areas listed as protection and surveillance zones in the Annex to that Implementing Decision.

(3)

Since the date of adoption of Implementing Decision (EU) 2020/1606, the Netherlands has notified the Commission of an additional outbreak of HPAI of subtype H5N8 in a holding where poultry are kept in the province of Gelderland, and has taken the necessary measures required in accordance with Directive 2005/94/EC, including the establishment of protection and surveillance zones around this new outbreak.

(4)

The Commission has examined those measures in collaboration with the Netherlands, and it is satisfied that the borders of the protection and surveillance zones, established by the competent authority in that Member State, are at a sufficient distance to any holding where an outbreak of HPAI of subtype H5N8 has been confirmed.

(5)

In order to prevent any unnecessary disturbance to trade within the Union and to avoid unjustified barriers to trade being imposed by third countries, it is necessary to rapidly describe at Union level, in collaboration with the Netherlands the new protection and surveillance zones established in that Member State in accordance with Directive 2005/94/EC. Therefore, the protection and surveillance zones listed for the Netherlands in the Annex to Implementing Decision (EU) 2020/1606 should be amended.

(6)

Accordingly, pending the next meeting of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed, the Annex to Implementing Decision (EU) 2020/1606 should be amended to update regionalisation at Union level to amend the protection and surveillance zones established in accordance with Directive 2005/94/EC by the Netherlands and the duration of the restrictions applicable therein.

(7)

Implementing Decision (EU) 2020/1606 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(8)

Given the urgency of the epidemiological situation in the Union as regards the spread of HPAI of subtype H5N8, it is important that the amendments made to the Annex to Implementing Decision (EU) 2020/1606 by this Decision take effect as soon as possible.

(9)

This Decision is to be reviewed at the next meeting of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The Annex to Implementing Decision (EU) 2020/1606 is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Done at Brussels, 10 November 2020.
