Article 20U.K.

1.Each Member State shall draw up a contingency plan applicable to all the diseases listed in Annex I, specifiying the national measures to be implemented in the event of an outbreak of any of these diseases.

This plan must allow access to facilities, equipment, personnel and all other appropriate materials necessary for the rapid and efficient eradication of the outbreak.

2.The general criteria to be applied for drawing up the contingency plans are laid down in points 1 to 5 and 10 of Annex IV, with points 6 to 9 representing criteria to be adapted according to the disease concerned. Member States may however confine themselves to applying the criteria laid down in points 6 to 9 where the criteria in points 1 to 5 and 10 were already adopted when plans were submitted for the application of control measures for another disease.

3.Contingency plans drawn up in accordance with the criteria listed in Annex IV shall be submitted to the Commission:

(i)

no later than six months after this Directive is brought into effect as regards swine vesicular disease;

(ii)

no later than six months after implementation of the specific measures for each of the other diseases listed in Annex I.

4.The Commission shall examine the contingency plans in order to determine whether they permit the desired objective to be attained and shall suggest to the Member State concerned any amendments required in particular to ensure that they are compatible with those of the other Member States.

The Commission shall approve the plans, if necessary amended, in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 25.

The plans may subsequently be amended or supplemented, in accordance with the same procedure, to take into account developments in the situation and the specific nature of the disease in question.
