COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2015/2444

of 17 December 2015

laying down standard requirements for the submission by Member States of national programmes for the eradication, control and surveillance of animal diseases and zoonoses for Union financing and repealing Decision 2008/425/EC

(notified under document C(2015) 9192)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 652/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 May 2014 laying down provisions for the management of expenditure relating to the food chain, animal health and animal welfare, and relating to plant health and plant reproductive material, amending Council Directives 98/56/EC, 2000/29/EC and 2008/90/EC, Regulations (EC) No 178/2002, (EC) No 882/2004 and (EC) No 396/2005 of the European Parliament and of the Council, Directive 2009/128/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council and repealing Council Decisions 66/399/EEC, 76/894/EEC and 2009/470/EC (1), and in particular Article 36(5) thereof.

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 652/2014 lays down, inter alia, provisions for the management of expenditure relating to the food chain and animal health and requirements for the submission and the content of the national programmes for the eradication, control and surveillance of animal diseases and zoonoses.

(2)

Article 12(1) of Regulation (EU) No 652/2014 provides that each year, by 31 May at the latest, Member States are to submit to the Commission the national programmes starting in the following year for which they wish to apply for a grant.

(3)

Commission Decision 2008/425/EC (2) provides that Member States seeking a financial contribution from the Union for national programmes for the eradication, monitoring and control of certain animal diseases are to submit applications containing certain minimum information set out in Annexes I to V to that Decision.

(4)

Following the adoption of Regulation (EU) No 652/2014, standard requirements for the content and the submission by Member States of national programmes as defined in Article 9 of that Regulation should be revised to fully comply with the requirements of Article 12 of that Regulation.

(5)

In addition, the standard requirements for the content and submission by Member States of national programmes as defined in Article 9 of Regulation (EU) No 652/2014, should comply with the criteria for national eradication, control and monitoring programmes established by Commission Decision 2008/341/EC (3).

(6)

To be in line with evolving Union legislation, the electronic standard templates provided online on the Commission's website should be used for certain diseases to facilitate necessary modifications or including further details. The Commission will inform and discuss with Member States all necessary modifications of the electronic standard templates in the framework of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed. The revised electronic standard templates will be sent to all Member States at the latest by early March of the concerned year.

(7)

For other diseases not included in electronic standard templates and for aquaculture diseases the use of non-electronic standard templates is considered the appropriate tool for submissions of national programmes, given the low number of submissions in the last years, which does not justify the development of specific electronic templates.

(8)

For the sake of clarity, Decision 2008/425/EC should therefore be repealed and replaced by this Decision.

(9)

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

In addition to the content set out in Article 12(2) of Regulation (EU) No 652/2014, national programmes shall contain the information provided in the Annexes to this Decision.

Article 2

National programmes laid down in Article 9 of Regulation (EU) No 652/2014 shall be submitted on-line by using the corresponding standard electronic templates indicated in Annexes I to IV to this Decision or by mail by using the corresponding standard templates set out in Annex V to this Decision for diseases not included in the electronic templates and in Annex VI to this Decision for aquaculture diseases

Article 3

Decision 2008/425/EC is repealed.

Article 4

This Decision shall apply to submissions of national eradication, control and surveillance programmes for 2017 and following years

Article 5

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 17 December 2015.

(1)  One document per disease is used unless all measures of the programme on the target population are used for the monitoring, control and eradication of different diseases.

(2)  Indicate the year(s) for which co-financing is requested.

(3)  A concise description is given including target population (species, number of herds and animals present and under the programme), the main measures (sampling and testing regimes, eradication measures used, qualification of herds and animals, vaccination schemes) and the main results (incidence, prevalence, qualification of herds and animals). The information is given for distinct periods if the measures were substantially modified. The information is documented by relevant summary epidemiological tables (set out in Section 6) complemented by graphs or maps (to be attached).

(4)  A concise description of the programme is given with the main objective(s) (monitoring, control, eradication, qualification of herds and/or regions, reducing prevalence and incidence), the main measures (sampling and testing regimes, eradication measures to be applied, qualification of herds and animals, vaccination schemes), the target animal population and the area(s) of implementation and the definition of a positive case.

(5)  Describe the authorities in charge of supervising and coordinating the departments responsible for implementing the programme and the different operators involved. Describe the responsibilities of all stakeholders involved.

(6)  Describe the name and denomination, the administrative boundaries, and the surface of the administrative and geographical areas in which the programme is to be applied. Illustrate with maps.

(7)  A comprehensive description needs to be provided of all measures unless reference can be made to Union legislation. The national legislation in which the measures are laid down is also mentioned.

(8)  To mention only if applicable.

(9)  A description is provided of the measures as regards positive animals (description of the slaughter policy, destination of carcasses, use or treatment of animal products, the destruction of all products which could transmit the disease or the treatment of such products to avoid any possible contamination, a procedure for the disinfection of infected holdings, the therapeutic or preventive treatment chosen, a procedure for the restocking with healthy animals of holdings which have been depopulated by slaughter and the creation of a surveillance zone around the infected holding,).

The early detection system shall include at least the following:

(a)

broad awareness, among the personnel employed in aquaculture businesses or involved in the processing of aquaculture animals, of any signs consistent with the presence of a disease, and training of veterinarians of aquatic animals health specialists in detecting and reporting unusual disease occurrence;
