COMMISSION DECISION of 10 November 1994 on Community financial assistance for improvement of the facilities for veterinary checks on Austria's external borders (Only the German text is authentic) (94/755/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Decision 90/424/EEC on expenditure in the veterinary field (1), as last amended by Decision 94/370/EC (2), and in particular Article 38 thereof,

Whereas Council Directives 90/675/EEC (3) and 91/496/EEC (4), as last amended by the Act of Accession of Norway, Austria, Finland and Sweden, lay down principles governing the organization of veterinary checks on products and animals entering the Community from third countries and allow for Member States, in particular Austria, to be granted financial assistance from the Community for the purposes of implementation of these checks;

Whereas, given its geographical situation, Austria will have particularly heavy responsibilities in performing checks on live animals and animal products from third countries; whereas inspection posts will be required on the borders with six third countries;

Whereas Austria has submitted to the Commission a national programme for improving its checking arrangements at external borders for animals and animal products; whereas the programme includes construction and renovation of the necessary infrastructure, purchase of equipment and recruitment of additional personnel, and is accompanied by the appropriate financial information;

Whereas reinforcement of veterinary control at external borders is, on account of the establishment of the internal market, one of the priorities for Community action;

Whereas however the Community's financial contribution must fall within the limits of the appropriations available; whereas it is accordingly necessary to decide on priorities for action so that Community funds are used most effectively;

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The programme indicated in the Annex hereto is approved for three years from 1 January 1995.

- an advance of 50 % of eligible expenditure for the year in question at the beginning of that year. In the case of the first year operations must commence by 1 January 1995,

- the balance at the end of the year. In the case of the last year the balance shall be paid on termination of operations, which must be by 31 December 1997.

Article 3

1. Payments shall be made in ecus.

2. The payment referred to in the first indent of Article 2 (2) shall be made on submission to the Commission of an application for an advance.
