COMMISSION DECISION of 13 March 1995 on an additional financial contribution from the Community for the eradication of classical swine fever in Germany (Only the German text is authentic) (95/79/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Decision 90/424/EEC of 26 June 1990 on expenditure in the veterinary field (1), as last amended by Decision 94/370/EC (2), and in particular Article 3 (4) thereof,

Whereas the Commission adopted Commission Decision 94/189/EC of 18 March 1994 on a financial contribution from the Community for the eradication of classical swine fever in Germany (3); whereas this Community contribution was designed to respond to outbreaks of classical swine fever between July and December 1993;

Whereas new outbreaks of classical swine fever occurred in Germany throughout 1994; whereas, in view of the serious danger to the Community's pig population which this disease represents, eradication should be continued with the assistance of a new financial contribution from the Community to make good the losses sustained by pig farmers;

Whereas, as soon as the presence of the disease was officially confirmed, the German authorities took appropriate measures which included the measures listed in Article 3 (2) of Council Decision 90/424/EEC; whereas these measures were notified by the German authorities;

Whereas the conditions for a new financial contribution by the Community have been met;

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

Germany may obtain an additional financial contribution from the Community for the outbreaks of classical swine fever which occurred on its territory between 1 January and 31 December 1994. The contribution by the Community shall amount to:

- 50 % of the costs incurred by Germany in compensating owners for the slaughter and destruction of pigs and the destruction of pigmeat products where necessary,

- 50 % of the costs incurred by Germany for the cleaning, disinsectization and disinfection of equipment and holdings,

- 50 % of the costs incurred by Germany in compensating owners for the destruction of contaminated feedingstuffs and equipment.

Article 2

1. The Community financial contribution shall be granted after supporting documents have been submitted.

2. Germany shall forward the supporting documents referred to in paragraph 1 not later than six months after the notification of this Decision.
