(3)

The Commission has examined those measures in collaboration with Romania, and is satisfied that the borders of areas A and B established by the competent authority in that Member State are at a sufficient distance to the actual location of the outbreak. areas A and B in Romania can therefore be confirmed and the duration of that regionalisation fixed.

(4)

Decision 2006/415/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.
