Abstract
This Directive lays down the animal health conditions applicable to intra-Community trade in and imports from third countries of semen of domestic animals of the porcine species.
Each Member State shall ensure that only semen, meeting the following general conditions, is intended for trade: (a) it must have been collected and processed, for the purpose of artificial insemination, in a collection centre approved from the point of view of animal health for the purposes of intra-Community trade in accordance with Article 5; (b) it must have been collected from domestic animals of the porcine species whose health status complies with Annex B; (c) it must have been collected, processed, stored and transported in accordance with Annexes A and C. Member States in which all collection centres contain only animals which have not been vaccinated against Aujeszky's disease giving a negative reaction to the serum neutralisation test, or to the ELISA test for Aujeszky's disease may refuse admission to their territory of semen from collection centres which do not have that status.
Member States shall ensure that each consignment of semen is accompanied by an animal health certificate drawn up in accordance with the specimen in Annex D. A Member State may authorize importation of semen only from those third countries which appear on a list drawn up in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 19. (22 articles and 4 Annexes)
