Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Council Directive 92/65/EEC of 13 July 1992 laying down animal health requirements governing trade in and imports into the Community of animals, semen, ova and embryos not subject to animal health requirements laid down in specific Community rules referred to in Annex A(I) to Directive 90/425/EEC (1), and in particular the fourth indent of Article 11(2) and the third indent of Article 11(3) thereof,

Directive 92/65/EEC lays down the animal health requirements governing trade in semen, ova and embryos of the ovine and caprine species.

(4)

It is therefore necessary to align the animal health model certificates in Annexes I and II to Decision 95/388/EC with the updated rules.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,
