COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION

of 14 February 2014

(notified under document C(2014) 737)

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2014/90/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Directive 64/432/EEC of 26 June 1964 on animal health problems affecting intra-Community trade in bovine animals and swine (1), and in particular Article 9(2) thereto,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 64/432/EEC lays down rules for trade within the Union in bovine animals. Article 9 thereof provides that a Member State which has a compulsory national control programme for one of the contagious diseases listed in Annex E(II) thereto, may submit its programme to the Commission for approval. That list includes infectious bovine rhinotracheitis. Infectious bovine rhinotracheitis is the description of the most prominent clinical signs of the infection with the bovine herpes virus type 1 (BHV1).

(2)

Article 9 of Directive 64/432/EEC also provides for the definition of the additional guarantees which may be required in intra-Union trade.

(3)

Commission Decision 2004/558/EC (2) approves the programmes for the control and eradication of BHV1 presented by the Member States listed in Annex I thereto for the regions listed in that Annex and for which additional guarantees apply in accordance with Article 9 of Directive 64/432/EEC.

(4)

Italy has submitted to the Commission a programme for the control and eradication of BHV1 in the Autonomous Region of Valle d’Aosta. This programme complies with the criteria set out in Article 9(1) of Directive 64/432/EEC. This programme also provide for rules for the movement of bovine animals within and into that region, which are equivalent to those previously implemented in the Province of Bolzano in Italy, which were successful in eradicating the disease in that Province.

(5)

The programme presented by Italy for the Autonomous Region of Valle d’Aosta and the additional guarantees presented in accordance with Article 9 of Directive 64/432/EEC should be approved.

(6)

Annex I to Decision 2004/558/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

Annex I to Decision 2004/558/EC is replaced by the text in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 14 February 2014.
