Extracts from SPS Committee meeting summary reports
The European Communities stated that they would bilaterally request clarification of the legal scope and scientific grounds for the measure. Brazil reported that the import restriction on live ostriches was due to the possible threats posed to the Brazilian poultry industry. The regulation that had been notified to the SPS Committee required that the OIE existing standards for inspection, supervision and quarantine requirements, both at the point of origin and the point of destiny, be followed. Brazil took note of the request from the European Communities to provide the necessary risk assessment for the non OIE-listed diseases and agreed to convey this request to the relevant authorities.
