COMMISSION DECISION

of 29 July 1985

concerning animal health conditions and veterinary certification for imports of fresh meat from certain third countries

(85/414/EEC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 72/462/EEC of 12 December 1972 on health and veterinary inspection problems upon importation of bovine animals and swine and fresh meat from third countries (1), and in particular Articles 16, 23 and 28 thereof,

Whereas Commission Decisions 78/693/EEC (2), 85/97/EEC (3), 85/96/EEC (4), 85/99/EEC (5) and 85/220/EEC (6) have laid down the animal health conditions and veterinary certification requirements for imports of fresh meat from Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay and Colombia respectively; whereas these Decisions allow Member States to authorize imports of bovine tongues subject to special conditions; whereas inspection, in accordance with Article 23 of the Directive, of such tongues on importation for signs of foot-and-mouth disease is frustrated if epithelium has been removed before inspection; whereas it is therefore advisable, for reasons of animal health, to forbid the importation of tongues without epithelium from Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay and Colombia;

Whereas the measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Veterinary Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
