COMMISSION DECISION

of 28 April 1987

on the list of establishments in Canada approved for the purpose of importing fresh meat into the Community

(87/258/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 animals and swine and fresh meat from third countries (1), as last amended by Directive 87/64/EEC (2), and in particular Articles 4 (1) and 18 (1) thereof,

Whereas establishments in third countries cannot be authorized to export fresh meat unless they satisfy the general and special conditions laid down in Directive 72/462/EEC;

Whereas Canada has forwarded, in accordance with Article 4 (3) of Directive 72/462/EEC, a list of establishments authorized to export to the Community;

Whereas on the basis of a first inspection no establishments were judged satisfactory and Commission Decision 86/269/EEC (3), as last amended by Decision 87/256/EEC (4), prohibited Member States, on a Community basis, from importing fresh meat from establishments in Canada, while still allowing those Member States whose national legislation so permitted not to interrupt existing trade flows with the establishments proposed by the Canadian authorities for a period of seven months;

Whereas, following a re-examination of the establishments, the transitional arrangements were extended to 29 April 1987 by Commission Decision 87/134/EEC (5) to correspond with the entry into force of amended Community rules; whereas the deadline for introduciton into the Community of meat from these establishments is 22 May 1987 as laid down in Decision 87/256/EEC;

Whereas a further inspection carried out pursuant to Article 5 of Directive 72/462/EEC and Article 2 (1) of Commission Decision 86/474/EEC of 11 September 1986 on the implementation of the on-the-spot inspections to be carried out in respect of the importation of bovine animals and swine and fresh meat from non-member countries (6) has shown that the standard of hygiene in certain establishments has been raised and can thus be regarded as satisfactory;

Whereas they may therefore be entered on an initial list of establishments authorized to export to the Community;

Whereas the case of other establishments proposed by Canada has to be re-examined on the basis of additional information regarding their hygiene standards and their ability to adapt quickly to Community legislation;

Whereas, to avoid any abrupt interruption of trade flows, these establishments may be authorized temporarily from 29 April 1987 to export fresh meat to those Member States prepared to accept them;

Whereas it will therefore be necessary to re-examine and, if necessary, amend this Decision in the light of measures taken to this end and of improvements made;

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. The establishments in Canada appearing in the Annex hereto are hereby approved for the import of fresh meat into the Community pursuant to the said Annex.

2. Imports from establishments listed in the Annex shall remain subject to the Community veterinary provisions laid down elsewhere.

Article 2

Article 3

Member States shall prohibit imports of fresh meat coming from establishments not referred to in Articles 1 or 2.

Article 4

This Decision shall be reviewed and if necessary amended before 31 December 1987.

Article 5

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.
