COMMISSION DECISION of 18 March 1994 drawing up a list of third countries from which Member States authorize imports of certain products subject to Council Directive 92/118/EEC (Text with EEA relevance) (94/278/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 92/118/EEC laying down animal health and public health requirements governing trade in and imports into the Community of products not subject to the said requirements laid down in specific Community rules referred to in Annex A Chapter 1 to Directive 89/662/EEC and as regards pathogens, to Directive 90/425/EEC (1) and in particular Article 10 thereof,

Whereas certain products subject to Directive 92/118/EEC must come from a third country or part of a third country fulfilling the requirements laid down by the Directive itself; whereas it is the case for gelatines not intended for human consumption animal casings, bones and certain bone products, horns and certain horn products, hooves and certain hoof products intended for human or animal consumption, serum from equidae, lard and rendered fats, furred farm game and feather farmed game meat and poultry and wild game meat products;

Whereas other products subject to Directive 92/118/EEC must come from a third country or part of a third country appearing on lists to be laid down;

Whereas in view of establishing these lists, an evaluation of the real risk of the spread of serious transmissible diseases or of the diseases transmissible to man must be carried out; whereas this evaluation has been carried out and it is therefore possible to draw up the different lists of third countries necessary for the imports of the products in question which could be based, in particular, on Council Decision 79/542/EEC (2) as last amended by Commission Decision 94/59/EC (3);

Whereas certain products do not show any risk for animal or public health; whereas it is therefore possible to authorize imports of these products from any third country;

Whereas, considering the adaptation to the new regime which will follow the adoption of those lists, it is justified to foresee a period of time for their application;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
