Extracts from SPS Committee meeting summary reports
Australia stated that the notified measure would affect its alpaca exports to EC member States although Australia had been free from blue tongue for more than a decade, as recognized by many countries. Australia had submitted scientific evidence to the European Communities on several occasions and requested an update on this issue.
The European Communities clarified that the new notification was not due to a new regulation but merely a result of a simplification exercise which did not address Australia's situation. The European Communities indicated that it would respond to Australia's request directly.
