COMMISSION DECISION of 2 July 1992 concerning animal health conditions and veterinary certification for imports of fresh meat from the Republic of Slovenia (92/377/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, ovine and caprine animals and swine, fresh meat or meat products from third countries (1), as last amended by Council Regulation 3763/91/EEC (2), and in particular Article 16 thereof,

Whereas it is necessary to lay down animal health conditions for imports of fresh meat from Slovenia;

Whereas, following a Community veterinary mission, it appears that the animal health situation in Slovenia compares favourably with that in most of the Community countries, particularly as regards diseases transmissible through meat;

Whereas, in addition, the responsible veterinary authorities of Slovenia have confirmed that Slovenia has for at least 12 months been free from rinderpest, foot-and-mouth disease and that no vaccinations have been carried out against those diseases during that time;

Whereas animals vaccinated against classical swine fever are present in Slovenia; whereas therefore imports of fresh meat of the porcine species from this country should not be authorized;

Whereas the responsible veterinary authorities of Slovenia have undertaken to notify the Commission of the European Communities and the Member States, by telex or telegram, within 24 hours, of confirmation of the occurrence of any of the abovementioned diseases or the adoption of vaccination against them;

Whereas animal health conditions and veterinary certification must be adapted in the light of the animal health situation of the non-member country concerned;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

1. Member States shall authorize the importation of the following categories of fresh meat from Slovenia:

(a) fresh meat of domestic animals of the bovine, ovine or caprine species, conforming to the guarantees laid down in the animal health certificate in accordance with Annex A, which must accompany the consignment;

(b) fresh meat of domestic solipeds, conforming to the guarantees laid down in the animal health certificate in accordance with Annex B, which must accompany the consignment.

2. Member States shall not authorize the importation of categories of fresh meat from Slovenia other than those referred to in paragraph 1.

Article 2

This Decision shall not apply to imports of glands and organs authorized by the country of destination for pharmaceutical manufacturing purposes.

Article 3

This Decision shall apply from 1 July 1992.
