Council Decision 92/438/EEC on computerization of veterinary import procedures (Shift project), amending Directives 90/675/EEC, 91/496/EEC, 91/628/EEC and Decision 90/424/EEC, and repealing Decision 88/192/EEC
Official Journal L 243, 25 August 1992, pp. 27-31
THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Economic Community, and in particular Article 43 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Having regard to the opinion of the European Parliament (1),

Whereas, since the adoption of Council Decision 88/192/EEC of 28 March 1988 on a system for health control of imports from third countries at frontier inspection posts (Shift project) (2), considerable progress has been made on harmonization in the veterinary field;

Whereas, in particular, the Council has adopted Directive 90/675/EEC of 10 December 1990 laying down the principles governing the organization of veterinary checks on products entering the Community from third countries (3), Directive 91/496/EEC of 15 July 1991 laying down the principles governing the organization of veterinary checks on animals entering the Community from third countries (4) and Directive 91/628/EEC of 19 November 1991 on the protection of animals during transport (5);

Whereas, in the light of the favourable trend in harmonization in the veterinary sector, it is appropriate to lay down fresh provisions on computerization of veterinary import procedures and therefore to repeal Decision 88/192/EEC;

Whereas these fresh provisions must help protect public and animal health while permitting attainment of the internal market for animals and animal products;

Whereas these new provisions are all the more necessary in that inspection at internal frontiers is to be discontinued;

Whereas computerization of veterinary import procedures must provide an efficient way for an official veterinarian rejecting a consignment at a border inspection post to pass on relevant information and also data bases detailing import requirements and imports of animals and animal products;

Whereas Directives 90/675/EEC, 91/496/EEC and 91/628/EEC should be amended accordingly;

Whereas provision should be made in Council Decision 90/424/EEC of 26 June 1990 on expenditure in the veterinary field (6) for the Community to contribute financially to implementation of the new measures relating to the computerization of veterinary import procedures;

Whereas the Commission should be entrusted with the task of adopting the necessary implementing rules,
