All the Member States were represented.

1. Exchange of views of the Committee on the evolution of animal diseases in the Community including:

Classical swine fever

United Kingdom

The UK delegation distributed and presented report n° 6 on the classical swine fever situation. The representative reported a further outbreak (2000/16) which was confirmed in Norfolk on 03/11/2000 in the already established protection zone.

African swine fever

Portugal

Postponed.

Foot-and-mouth disease

Greece

The Greek delegation distributed and presented the 7 th follow-up report on the eradication of foot-and-mouth disease in Greece. The last of the 14 outbreaks was recorded on 10/09/2000. The delegate presented the final results of a serological surveillance carried out in September and October 2000 around the outbreaks and stated that, on the basis of the evidence presented, the epidemic could be considered eradicated. He subsequently requested to lift the restriction measures by repealing Decision 2000/486/EC 1 (see also point 21C).

Bluetongue

Greece

The Greek delegation reported 10 new outbreaks of bluetongue in the Prefecture of Arta in mid-western Greece. The detection of the disease has been obscured by an infection with orf. The origin and transmission of the infection was most likely illegal movement of cattle. The virus was typed as sero-type 4. The Greek authorities have installed restriction measures identical to the ones laid down by Decision 2000/350/EC 2 . The delegate stated that the ban of export of all ruminants to Member States and third countries would be continued based on the declaration made earlier.

Italy

In Sardinia, 4189 outbreaks have been reported. Sero-surveillance was being carried out on all susceptible animals. In Sicily, 9 outbreaks were confirmed an in Calabria, 169 outbreaks were reported. There was one suspect case in another region.

Within the framework of the tracing back of animals introduced from the regions affected, 5811 cattle and 291 sheep and goats have been traced and tested. All the sheep and goats are negative. A total of 14 cattle have been found positive. In each holding where cattle have been found positive all animals have been tested and insect trapping has been carried out. At present there is no evidence of transmission in the holdings where positive animals have been found.

Spain (Baleares)

The Spanish delegation distributed and presented a report on the bluetongue situation in the Baleares. In Mallorca and Menorca respectively, 349 holdings and 111 holdings were affected. Vaccination with type 2 vaccine was being carried out.

France

The French delegation distributed and presented a report on the bluetongue situation in Corsica. In total, 12 outbreaks have been confirmed, of which 11 in the south and 1 in the north. 43 further holdings were under suspicion.

Newcastle disease

Italy

The Italian delegation informed the Committee that ND virus had been isolated in a turkey flock following sampling in a slaughterhouse located in the region of Emilia Romagna. The flock had originated from the province of Brescia in the region of Lombardia. There has been no clinical evidence of the disease and no outbreak has been declared. Restriction measures have subsequently been put in place after confirmation of the disease. The Commission's representative said that the incident had to be considered as an outbreak and has to be notified through the ADNS. The Italian delegation made the following statement:

"Considering the epidemiological situation regarding Newcastle disease presented by the Italian delegation at the Standing Veterinary Committee meeting of 8 November 2000 and on basis of the discussion and the conclusions made there:

Italy will ensure to continue the compulsory vaccination programme against Newcastle disease establioshed in the regions of Emilia Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Marche, Piemonte, Toscana, Umbria and Sardinia until 31 December 2000.

Italy will ensure that at least until 31 December, the provisions listed below will apply for intra-Community trade of live poultry and hatching eggs:

  • only vaccinated live poultry and hatching eggs derived from vaccinated flocks are allowed to leave the Italian territory for intra-Community trade
  • the following words shall be included in the relevant animal health certificates used for intra-Community trade in live poultry and hatching eggs:
    • "The poultry had been vaccinated against Newcastle disease under official control."
    • "The hatching eggs are derived from flocks, which have been vaccinated against Newcastle disease under official control."

Avian influenza

Italy

The Italian delegation provided updated information concerning the epidemiological situation in relation to the low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) situation in the Verona Province. To date, 50 outbreaks have been recorded.

The Commission announced that the vaccination programme in the Verona Province, presented by Italy, had been reviewed and adopted with the Member States on 30/10/2000 (Doc. Sanco/2695/2000 - Rev. 1) - See also point 21A.

The presentation of the programme by the Italian delegation was followed by an extensive exchange of views with Member States.

West Nile fever

France

The French delegate said that 4 new cases had been confirmed, which brings the total up to 53 cases. The representative also indicated that the disease was coming to an end because the vector was no longer present, due to climatic circumstances. He requested therefore that the measures would not be prolonged.

Within the framework of the present point on the evolution of animal diseases, the following additional information was provided:

  • The Greek delegation informed the Committee about a suspicion of sheep pox in Greece
  • Austria reported an outbreak of classical swine fever in feral pigs.
  • Denmark distributed and presented a report in relation to avian paramyxovirus infection in wild pheasants.
  • The Commission reminded the Member States about its request for comments on the information provided in relation to the Newcastle disease situation in Australia.

2. Information on the results of the controls for sheep and goat brucellosis ( b. Melitensis) in free areas of the Community in 1999 (doc. Sanco/1956/2000)

The Commission distributed a document gathering the results of the controls for sheep and goat brucellosis ( B. melitensis) in Member States or regions officially free of the disease. It appeared from the data provided by the Member States concerned that the officially free status could be maintained.

3. Information in relation to the animal health situation in Zimbabwe and South Africa

The Commission presented a preliminary report of a mission carried out in South Africa in order to assess the foot-and-mouth disease situation. In total, 4 outbreaks have been confirmed in the KwaZulu-Natal Province. The Commission's representative concluded that the outbreaks were well managed and that the situation seemed to be under control. The Commission also reminded the Member States that the EU is only taking in de-boned and matured meat from the non-restricted area.

The Commission also distributed Doc. Sanco/3885/2000 containing a situation update in Zimbabwe and the schedule of slaughter of EC and non-EC eligible cattle at the establishment CSC Masvingo. Information from the EU delegation in Harare showed that safeguard measures did not seem to be necessary.

4. Information on the West Nile fever situation in the U.S.A.

The Commission distributed an update on the West Nile fever situation in the USA (Doc. Sanco/3866/2000). To date, infection has been confirmed in 53 horses.

5. Information from the Commission concerning several decisions in relation to the reimbursement of the eradication programmes 1999

The point was withdrawn from the agenda.

6. Information and exchange of views on the USDA proposed rule on regionalisation of the United Kingdom in reaction to classical swine fever in East Anglia (doc. Sanco/3818/2000)

The Commission informed the Committee about a USDA proposed rule intended to regionalise the UK in reaction to the CSF outbreaks, by imposing restrictions on the importation of pork and pork products and prohibiting the importation of swine from East Anglia. The Commission presented a draft reaction to this proposed rule, requesting that the measures be repealed 6 months after the last outbreak. The Member States were invited to comment on the draft presented.

7. Reminder to the competent authorities of the Member States of their obligations in relation to Article 8 of Directive 91/628/EC 3 and to Article 7(3) of Directive 91/629/EC 4 and Directive 91/630/EC 5

The Commission reminded the Member States of their obligation to report on the results of inspections carried out in application of the above Directives. Some Member States had not yet transmitted the required data. The Commission urged these Member States to send in the information concerned.

The Commission indicated that if the information required was not made available by end 2000, infringement procedures would be launched.

8. Information - lists of the laboratories approved by the Member States for the importation of equidae coming from Eastern Europe (Dec 93/682/EC modifying certificate "b" of 93/197/EEC) (doc. Sanco/3100/2000)

The Commission distributed the above list of laboratories approved by Member States.

8a. Information on the scheme for the withdrawal in Scotland of diseased fish from farms where the presence of infectious salmon anemia has been officially confirmed (doc. Sanco/3871/2000)

The UK delegation presented an application from Scotland regarding a scheme for the withdrawal of diseased fish from farms at which the presence of the disease infectious salmon anaemia (ISA) has been confirmed as defined in Council Directive 93/53/EEC 6 . The Commission requested the Member States to comment on the application presented.

8b. Information from France concerning the surveillance network foreseen in Directive 64/432/EEC

The French delegation informed the Committee about the set up and operation of a surveillance network as foreseen in Directive 64/432/EEC 7 , amended and updated by Directive 97/12/EEC 8 (Article 14). The delegate requested the Commission to approve the network.

8c. Information of the Committee on British beef consignments towards Belgium

The Belgian delegate informed the Committee about the discovery on 25/10/2000, in a Belgian processing plant, of a consignment of minced meat from the UK without the required DBES or XAP labelling. Investigation learned that, after processing into pate, the finished product was to be returned and distributed on the UK market. The enquiry also revealed that two similar transactions had already taken place in June and August 2000.

The UK delegation confirmed the information given by Belgium. Investigation indicated that most of the meat/pate has been returned to the UK or is under official control in Belgium. Efforts are being made to find a small amount which has not been traced yet.

9. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision on the evolution of animal diseases in the Community and in Third Countries.

The Commission introduced the following proposals:

1. Draft Commission Decision amending Decision 2000/598/EC concerning certain protection measures against bluetongue in Sardinia and Decision 2000/685/EC concerning certain measures against bluetongue in Sicily and Calabria (Doc. Sanco/3876/2000)

Considering the evolution of the epidemiological situation in relation to bluetonge in the regions concerned, the Commission proposed to prolong the protection measures taken with the Decisions mentioned above.

Vote: unanimous vote in favour.

2. Draft Commission Decision amending Decision 93/195/EEC on animal health conditions and veterinary certification for the re-entry of registered horses for racing, competition and cultural events after temporary export (Doc. Sanco/3877/2000)

In accordance with Decision 93/195/EEC, the re-entry of registered horses after temporary export is restricted to horses kept for less than 30 days in a third country. In order to make it easier for horses originating in the Community to take part in the Japan Cup and the Hong Kong International races, the Commission proposed to extend that period to less than 90 days.

Vote: unanimous vote in favour.

10. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision approving the programmes for the eradication and monitoring of animal diseases and for the prevention of zoonoses presented for the year 2001 by the Member States (doc. Sanco/3111/2000-rev.1)

The draft Decision aims to individually approve the programmes for the eradication and monitoring of animal diseases and for the control of zoonoses qualifying for a financial contribution from the Community for 2001. The programmes qualifying for a financial contribution were listed in Decision 2000/640/EC 9 . The proposal also fixes the level and the upper limit of the contribution.

The vote was postponed.

11. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision approving the programmes for the monitoring for BSE presented for 2001 by the Member States and fixing the level of the community's financial contribution (doc. Sanco/3112/2000-rev.1)

The draft Decision aims to individually approve the programmes for the monitoring of BSE qualifying for a financial contribution from the Community for 2001. The programmes qualifying for a financial contribution were listed in Decision 2000/639/EC 10 . The proposal also fixes the level and the upper limit of the contribution.

The vote was postponed.

12. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision amending Commission Decision 2000/609/EC laying down animal and public health conditions and veterinary certification for imports of farmed ratite meat and amending Commission Decision 94/85/EC drawing up a list of Third Countries from which the Member States authorise imports of fresh poultry meat (doc Sanco/3764/2000)

The Commission explained that some third countries had difficulties in implementing the requirements laid down in the certification of Decision 2000/609/EC by the date of entry into force (01/10/2000). The Commission, in a first draft, proposed to postpone the entry into force until 31/05/2000. However, the discussion that followed led to amend the text by introducing a transitional period for the entry into force of some import requirements. The six months period for surveillance for Newcastle disease required in the model B certificate was proposed to be delayed for six months.

Vote: unanimous vote in favour.

13. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision amending annexes a, c and e to Council Directive 92/65/EEC 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 (1) to Directive 90/425/EEC (doc Sanco/1971/2000 rev 5)

Member States are experiencing difficulties in the implementation of Council Directive 92/65/EEC governing trade in animals going to approved bodies, institutions or centres for display, education, conservation or research; and difficulties in approving these bodies, institutions or centres under the present requirements. It seemed also necessary to introduce a specific certificate for trade concerning these animals and to clarify the list of notifiable diseases. The Commission therefore proposed to amend the annexes A, C and E in the above Directive accordingly.

The vote was postponed. The Commission announced that a further working group would be organised and requested the Member States to comment on the proposal.

The Commission also distributed the 'Recommended Code of Practice' of the European Association of zoos and aquaria (Doc. Sanco/3880/2000)

14. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision amending annex I chapter 14 of Council Directive 92/118/EEC laying down animal health and public health requirements governing trade in and imports into the Community of products not subject to the said requirements laid down in specific community rules referred to in annex A (1) to Directive 89/662/EEC and, as regards pathogens to Directive 90/425/EEC (doc Sanco/2685/2000 rev 2)

The proposal intends to introduce better control on cross border trade in unprocessed manure in view of possible animal disease risks and, in such movements, to take into account the Aujeszky's disease status of Member States.

Vote: unanimous vote in favour.

15. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision amending Decision 1999/283/EC concerning the animal health conditions and veterinary certification for imports of fresh meat from certain African countries to take into account some aspects in relation to Zimbabwe (doc.Sanco/1274/2000)

The point was withdrawn from the agenda.

16. Exchange of views and possible opinion on a draft Commission Decision amending Commission Decision 93/402/EEC concerning animal health conditions and veterinary certification for imports of fresh meat from South American countries to take account of the animal health situation in Uruguay (doc. Sanco/3794/2000-rev.1)

The Commission distributed and presented epidemiological information on an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in Uruguay (department of Artigas) (Doc. Sanco/3820/2000). The Commission's representative indicated that the competent authorities of Uruguay provided satisfactory guarantees with regard to the measures taken to control the movement of animals in and out the department of Artigas. The Commission therefore proposed to regionalise Uruguay to redefine the territories from which imports into the Community of fresh meat are authorised.

Vote: 77 votes in favour; 10 abstentions.

17. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision amending Commission Decision 2000/671/EC in relation to certain protection measures against bluetongue in Corsica, France (doc. Sanco/3842/2000-rev.1)

The Commission explained that following outbreaks of bluetongue in Corsica, France, it had taken protection measures to prevent the further spread of the disease (Decision 2000/671/EC). In accordance with the provisions of Directive 90/425/EEC 11 , this Decision has to be submitted to the SVC to be confirmed, amended or withdrawn. The Commission deemed that the evolution of the epidemic did not justify the measures to be amended nor withdrawn and therefore proposed to maintain them. In derogation to the measures taken, the movement of animals for slaughter towards a slaughterhouse in Sardinia can be authorised under certain conditions.

Vote: unanimous vote in favour.

The Commission said that in relation to the vaccination request against bluetongue from Italy, France and Spain, more vaccine could be purchased and made available to the Member States concerned. The Commission proposed to gather the Member States' requests for vaccine and then to contact the manufacturer. The Member States concerned agreed to this approach.

18. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision for safety and potency testing of foot-and-mouth disease vaccines and bluetongue vaccine (doc. Sanco/1894/2000 - rev.2)

The FMD virus antigen strains purchased by Decision 93/590/EC 12 need to be tested for potency with the objective to ensure that the quality of the reserves is adequate. By Decision 98/64/EC 13 it was agreed that the Commission would make arrangements for testing of certain FMD vaccines produced in Turkey for immunisation of susceptible animals kept in Turkish Thrace. By Decision 2000/292/EC 14 the Community has established a bluetongue vaccine emergency stock. The purpose of the draft Decision is to provide for the engagement of the financial resources in 2000 for the testing of these foot-and-mouth disease vaccines and bluetongue vaccines important for the prevention of disease outbreaks in the Member States.

The Commission explained that it had received documentation from 4 tenders and that it would now decide on whom would get the contract.

The vote was postponed.

19. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision amending for the second time Decision 2000/284/EC establishing the list of approved semen collection centres for imports of equine semen from Third Countries (doc. Sanco/3793/2000)

The purpose of the proposal was to update the list of approved semen collection centres in the USA for imports of equine semen into the EU.

Vote: unanimous vote in favour.

20. Possibly, exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision on the total amount of Community aid for the eradication of classical swine fever in Spain in 1997

The point was withdrawn from the agenda.

21. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision concerning a specific financial contribution by the Community relating to the surveillance programme of campylobacter in broilers presented by Sweden (doc. Sanco/2789/2000)

The Swedish delegation presented the outline and the objectives of the proposed control programme for campylobacter in broilers. The purpose of the programme is, through preventive measures, reduce the occurrence of campylobacter in the food chain, starting with the primary production and in the long run develop a campylobacter free production system. After the presentation, the Swedish delegate answered the Member States' questions.

The Commission presented a draft Decision based on articles 19 and 20 (technical and scientific measures necessary for the development of Community veterinary legislation) of Decision 90/424 aiming to provide financial assistance to Sweden in order to cover certain costs of laboratory testing, related to the implementation of the above programme during 2001.

The vote was postponed.

21a. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision amending Decision 2000/721/EC on introducing vaccination to supplement the measures to control avian influenza in Italy and on specific movement control measures (doc. Sanco/3839/2000-rev.3)

The purpose of the draft Decision was to amend Decision 2000/721/EC subsequent to the review, at a meeting with Member States on 30/10/2000 (see also point 1), of the vaccination programme introduced to supplement the measures to control avian influenza in Italy.

Vote: 82 votes in favour, 5 abstentions.

21b. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision amending for the third time Decision 2000/528/EC concerning certain protection measures relating to classical swine fever in the United Kingdom (doc. Sanco/3860/2000)

Following a new outbreak of classical swine fever in Norfolk, the Commission proposed to prolong the measures laid down in Decision 2000/528/EC until 20/12/2000.

Vote: unanimous vote in favour.

21c. Exchange of views and possible opinion of the Committee on a draft Commission Decision repealing Decision 2000/486/EC concerning certain protection measures with regard to foot-and-mouth disease in Greece (doc. Sanco/3803/2000)

In the light of the favourable evolution of the FMD situation in Greece, the Commission proposed to lift the restriction measures by repealing Decision 2000/486/EC as of 27/11/2000.

Vote: unanimous vote in favour.

22. Exchange of views on a draft Commission Decision amending for the second time Decision 92/532/EEC laying down the sampling plans and diagnostic methods for the detection and confirmation of certain fish diseases and repealing Commission Decision 92/532/EEC (doc. Sanco/1965/2000-rev.3)

The Commission distributed and presented the proposal for study and observation. The draft Decision aims, in the light of new practical and scientific developments, to update the sampling plans and diagnostic methods for the detection and confirmation of certain fish diseases. The Commission presented the draft, which was amended according to the agreement reached at the Annual Laboratory meeting of NRL for fish diseases on 26-27 September.

23. Exchange of views on a draft Commission Decision establishing a model for the lists of units approved by Member States for intra-community trade in live animals, semen and embryos and the rules applying to the transmission of these lists to the Commission (doc. Sanco/3013/2000-rev.1)

The Commission distributed and presented the proposal for study and observation. Each Member State has to provide to the Commission and the other Member States, the list of units approved for intra-Community trade in live animals, semen and embryos. The list should include assembly centres, embryo collection teams, semen collection centres, quarantine premises, staging points or any establishment which has to be approved for trade on the territory of each Member States. The purpose of the draft Decision presented is to harmonise the model of those lists and the way they are transmitted in order to set up a simple access to common up-to-date lists for the Community.

The Member States were positive to the initiative and agreed to the objective of the proposal.

24. Possibly, exchange of views on a draft Commission Decision laying down the rules for technical and scientific measures concerning the control of african swine fever and the financial contribution from the Community to Portugal (doc. Sanco/1935/2000)

The point was withdrawn from the agenda.

25. Miscellaneous

1. The German delegation sought clarification regarding the interpretation of Decision 2000/418/EC 15 , in particular concerning the question if the import restrictions for fresh meat should also be applied for raw material which can be used for petfood or pharmaceutical and technical purposes. The Commission made clear that the above Decision does not cover imports of raw material and that therefore national rules should apply.

2. Upon request of the German delegation, the Commission explained that the information regarding circus animals and exhibitions was requested from the Member States within the framework of Directive 92/65/EEC 16 .

3. Germany also wanted to know if, in relation to requests for imports of lamas and alpacas from the USA, the Commission intended to regionalise the USA for bluetongue.
