(Text with EEA relevance)

(2006/296/EC)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 2004/68/EC of 26 April 2004 laying down animal health rules for the importation into and transit through the Community of certain live ungulate animals, amending Directives 90/426/EEC and 92/65/EEC and repealing Directive 72/462/EEC(1), and in particular Article 3(1) and 7(e) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Part 1 of Annex I to Council Decision 79/542/EEC of 21 December 1979 drawing up a list of third countries or parts of third countries, and laying down animal and public health and veterinary certification conditions, for importation into the Community of certain live animals and their fresh meat(2), sets out a list of third countries and parts of third countries from which Member States are authorised to import certain live animals.

(2) Chile has requested the Community to authorise imports of bovine animals from Chile.

(3) The disease situation in Chile is acceptable and, in addition, it is already listed for non-domestic animals other than swine. Chile should therefore be listed for imports of bovines into the Community.

(4) Decision 79/542/EEC should therefore be amended accordingly.

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