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 (3) thereof,

Whereas outbreaks of sheep pox have occurred in Greece in the period November 1995 to 31 December 1996;

Whereas the appearance of this disease is a serious danger to the Community's sheep and goat population and, in order to help eradicate the disease as rapidly as possible, the Community can participate with financial assistance;

Whereas, when the presence of sheep pox was officially confirmed the Greek authorities established measures within the framework of the provisions of Article 3 (2) of Decision 90/424/EEC and the provisions of Council Directive 92/119/EEC of 17 December 1992 introducing general Community measures for the control of certain animal diseases and specific measures relating to swine vesicular disease (3) as last amended by the Act of Accession of Austria, Finland and Sweden; whereas such measures were notified by the Greek authorities;

Whereas for the purpose of disease eradication, a village may be considered as an epidemiological unit in so far as sheep and goat farms are concerned;

Whereas the conditions for Community financial assistance have been met;

Whereas, in order to carry out good financial management, it is necessary that Greece should send the necessary supporting documents to the Commission;
