Question for written answer P-001304-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Keith Taylor (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  The continued movement of pet animals after the withdrawal of the UK from the EU
 Answer in writing 

In its ‘Notice on travelling between the EU and the United Kingdom following withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU’, issued on 13 November 2018, the Commission stated that ‘the requirements for pets accompanying travellers coming from the United Kingdom as of the withdrawal date will also depend on whether the United Kingdom is “listed”, as of that date, as a third country providing certain animal health guarantees’.

Given the high animal-health status of the United Kingdom, can the Commission confirm that it will amend Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 577/2013 to list the United Kingdom, in accordance with Article 13(1) of Regulation (EU) No 576/2013, to take effect on the date of the UK’s withdrawal, thereby allowing for the continued movement of pet animals into the Union providing they are accompanied by a duly filled-in third country pet passport, the model for which has been adopted by the Commission?
