COMMISSION DECISION

of 17 April 2007

concerning lists of animals and products to be subject to controls at border inspection posts under Council Directives 91/496/EEC and 97/78/EC

(notified under document number C(2007) 1547)

(2007/275/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 91/496/EEC of 15 July 1991 laying down the principles governing the organisation of veterinary checks on animals entering the Community from third countries and amending Directives 89/662/EEC, 90/425/EEC and 90/675/EEC (1), and in particular Article 4(5) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 97/78/EC of 18 December 1997 laying down the principles governing the organisation of veterinary checks on products entering the Community from third countries (2), and in particular Article 3(5) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 2002/99/EC of 16 December 2002 laying down the animal health rules governing the production, processing, distribution and introduction of products of animal origin for human consumption (3), and in particular Article 8(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 91/496/EEC provides for veterinary checks in respect of animals from third countries entering the Community to be carried out by the Member States in accordance with that Directive.

(2)

Directive 97/78/EC provides for veterinary checks on certain products of animal origin and certain plant products introduced into the Community from third countries.

(3)

Commission Decision 2002/349/EC of 26 April 2002 laying down the list of products to be examined at border inspection posts under Council Directive 97/78/EC (4) provides that the products of animal origin listed in that Decision are to be subject to veterinary checks at border inspection posts in accordance with Directive 97/78/EC.

(4)

As veterinary checks at border inspections posts are carried out in close cooperation with customs officials, it is appropriate to use a list of products that refer to the Combined Nomenclature (CN) provided for in Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 of 23 July 1987 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff (5) as a first basis for selection of consignments. The lists of products in Decision 2002/349/EC should therefore be replaced by the list in Annex I to this Decision.

(5)

In the interests of rationality of Community legislation, it is appropriate that the list in Annex I to this Decision also covers animals entering the Community from third countries.

(6)

In order to facilitate controls by the competent authorities at border inspection posts, the list in Annex I to this Decision should provide as precise a description as possible of the animals and products to be subjected to veterinary checks under Directive 97/78/EC. In addition, for certain CN codes, this Decision only provides for a small part of the products falling under the relevant Chapter or heading to be subjected to veterinary checks. In such cases, Column 3 of Annex I to this Decision, should refer to the applicable CN code and give details of the products which should be subject to those veterinary checks.

(7)

Decision 2002/349/EC provides that composite food products containing only a limited percentage of products of animal origin are to continue to be subject to national rules.

(8)

However, in order to avoid differences in interpretation between Member States, leading to distortions in trade and to potential animal health risks, rules should now be laid down at Community level concerning the composite products that may be exempted from veterinary checks under Directive 97/78/EC.

(9)

Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2004 laying down specific hygiene rules for food of animal origin (6) contains definitions of certain products. In the interests of consistency of Community legislation, it is appropriate to have regard to those definitions in this Decision.

(10)

There are differences in the animal health risk associated with imports of different types of animal products into the Community. Accordingly, this Decision should provide that all composite products containing meat products should be subject to veterinary checks, while different criteria should be applied to composite products containing other animal products based upon the need to have harmonised rules at Community level.

(11)

Certain composite products receive treatment during manufacture which reduces the potential animal health risk present in such products. The appearance, shelf stability, and physical characteristics should therefore be used as recognisable distinguishing features for competent authorities that have to make a decision on the necessity of subjecting composite products to veterinary checks.

(12)

In the interests of consistency of veterinary checks at border inspection posts on composite products being introduced into the Community, it is appropriate to establish also a list of certain foodstuffs and composite products that may be exempted from the veterinary checks provided for in Directive 97/78/EC.

(13)

In the interests of coherence of Community legislation, it is appropriate to repeal Decision 2002/349/EC and replace it by this Decision.

(14)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

ANNEX I

LIST OF ANIMALS AND PRODUCTS SUBJECT TO VETERINARY CHECKS AS REFERRED TO IN ARTICLE 3

This list sets out animals and products according to the goods nomenclature in use in the Community to assist selection of consignments that must be submitted to veterinary checks at a border inspection post

Notes:

1.   Column 1:

Where a four digit code is used: unless otherwise specified all products prefixed with or covered by these four digits must be passed to the competent authority for veterinary checks.

Where only certain products under any code are required to be examined under veterinary checks and no specific subdivision under this code exists in the goods nomenclature, the code is marked Ex (for example Ex30 02: veterinary check required only for animal derived material and not for the entire heading).

The digits placed within brackets in column 1 are not to be entered in the TRACES system set up by Commission Decision 2004/292/EC of 30 March 2004 on the introduction of the TRACES system and amending Decision 92/486/EEC (1).

2.   Column 2:

The description of the goods is as laid down in the description column of Annex 1 to Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87. For further explanation of the exact coverage of the Common Customs Tariff please refer to the latest amendment to that Annex.

NB: Further information on the products covered by the different Chapters and Headings is provided by the Harmonized System Explanatory Notes of the World Customs Organisation or can be found in the Combined Nomenclature explanatory notes as regards Combined Nomenclature (CN) codes.

3.   Column 3: This column gives details of the products covered.

In some cases there are certain live animals (such as reptiles, amphibians, insects, worms, or other invertebrates) or animal products sent to the official veterinarian for which no harmonised animal health conditions for imports into the Community are laid down, and therefore there is no harmonised import certificate. The conditions of import for all live animals not elsewhere specified fall within the scope of Council Directive 92/65/EEC of 13 July 1992 laying down animal health requirements governing trade in and imports into the Community of animals, semen, ova and embryos not subject to animal health requirements laid down in specific Community rules referred to in Annex A (I) to Directive 90/425/EEC (2), but in the case of certain animals national rules apply as regards the documentation required to accompany consignments. Official veterinarians must examine the consignments and issue a Common Veterinary Entry Document (CVED) as appropriate to indicate that a control has been carried out and that the animals may be released for free circulation.

In certain cases as regards animal by-products covered by Regulation (EC) No 1774/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 3 October 2002 laying down health rules concerning animal by products not intended for human consumption (3), the full extent of the coverage of the Community legislation in respect of derived or processed products is not precisely defined. Veterinary checks must be carried out on products that are processed but are still essentially raw bulk product that are to be further processed before being presented to the final consumer.

In these cases the official veterinarian at the border inspection posts must specify whether a particular derived product is so processed that it falls outside the veterinary checks provided for in Community legislation.

TABLE

Notwithstanding the rules for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature, the wording for the description of the products in column 2 is to be considered as having no more than an indicative value, the scope being determined, within the context of this Annex by the scope of the CN codes as they exist at the time of adoption of the current Decision.

Where ex CN codes are referred to in this table, the coverage is to be determined by application of the CN code and corresponding description taken together.
