ANNEX IVU.K.+E.U.Disease listing

PART IU.K.+E.U.Criteria for listing diseases

A.

Exotic diseases shall meet the following criteria laid down in point 1 and either point 2 or 3.

1.

The disease is exotic to the Community, i.e. the disease is not established in Community aquaculture, and the pathogen is not known to be present in Community waters.

2.

It has potential for significant economic impact if introduced into the Community, either by production losses in Community aquaculture or by restricting the potential for trade in aquaculture animals and products thereof.

3.

It has potential for detrimental environmental impact if introduced into the Community, to wild aquatic animal populations of species, which are an asset worth protecting by Community law or international provisions.

B.

Non-exotic diseases shall meet the following criteria laid down in points 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 2 or 3.

1.

Several Member States, or regions in several Member States, are free of the specific disease.

2.

It has potential for significant economic impact if introduced into a Member State free of the disease, either by production losses, and annual costs associated with the disease and its control exceeding 5 % of the value of the production of the susceptible aquaculture animal species production in the region, or by restricting the possibilities for international trade in aquaculture animals and products thereof.

3.

The disease has shown, where it occurs, to have a detrimental environmental impact if introduced into a Member State free of the disease, to wild aquatic animal populations of species that is an asset worth protecting under Community law or international provisions.

4.

The disease is difficult to control and contain at farm or mollusc farming area level without stringent control measures and trade restrictions.

5.

The disease may be controlled at Member State level, experience having shown that zones or compartments free of the disease may be established and maintained, and that this maintenance is cost-beneficial.

6.

During placing on the market of aquaculture animals, there is a risk that the disease will establish itself in a previously uninfected area.

7.

Reliable and simple tests for infected aquatic animals are available. The tests must be specific and sensitive and the testing method harmonised at Community level.
