THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/429/EEC(1) of 26 June 1990 laying down the animal health requirements applicable to intra-Community trade in and imports of semen of domestic animals of the porcine species, as last amended by Commission Decision 2000/39/EC(2), and in particular Article 7(1), Article 9(2) and (3) and Article 10(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Commission Decision 93/160/EEC(3), as last amended by Decision 1999/150/EC(4), lays down the list of third countries from which porcine semen may be imported.

(2) Commission Decision 93/199/EEC(5), as last amended by Decision 94/667/EC(6) lays down animal health conditions and veterinary certification for the importation of porcine semen from third countries.

(3) Commission Decision 95/94/EC(7), as last amended by Decision 2001/727/EC(8), lays down the list of semen collection centres officially approved for the export to the Community.

(4) Cyprus should be added to the list of third countries from which imports are authorised by Decision 93/160/EEC, following Commission missions and in the light of the situation achieved with regard to animal health in this country.

(5) The competent veterinary services of Cyprus, Switzerland, Canada and Hungary have forwarded requests for addition to the list of centres officially approved in their territories for the export of semen of domestic animals of the porcine species to the Community, established by Commission Decision 95/94/EC.

(6) Guarantees regarding compliance with the requirements specified in Article 8 of Directive 90/429/EEC have been provided to the Commission by the competent veterinary services of the countries concerned, and the collection centres concerned have been officially approved for exports to the Community.

(7) The model of the animal health certificate provided for in Commission Decision 93/199/EEC, needs to be adapted to take into account the animal health situation in each third country and the amendments of Directive 90/429/EEC.

(8) It is more convenient to gather, in the same document, all the information relating to the importation of porcine semen (list of third countries authorised, veterinary requirements applying to importations and list of semen collection centres approved in those third countries), and to repeal Decisions 93/160/EEC, 93/199/EEC and 95/94/EC accordingly.

(9) The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Food Chain and Animal Health,
