Extracts from SPS Committee meeting summary reports
The European Communities stated that France, Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom had officially regained their OIE FMD-free status without vaccination after the 2001 outbreak. However, Mexico continued trade restrictions against Austrian animal products, despite the fact that Austria had not had a FMD outbreak since 1991. Austria had applied to be recognized as FMD-free by the Mexican authorities. Mexico indicated that Austria failed to meet certain requirements to be recognized as FMD-free and encouraged the Austrian authorities to complete a second questionnaire requesting more details.
In June 2003, the European Communities reported that bilateral consultations had been held, and Mexico confirmed that it expected the issue to be resolved soon.
