The SHIFT system has been set up to computerise veterinary procedures for animals and animal products being imported into the European Union.
Council Decision 92/438/EEC of 13 July 1992 on computerisation of veterinary import procedures (Shift project), amending Directives 90/675/EEC, 91/496/EEC and 91/628/EEC, Decision 90/424/EEC, and repealing Decision 88/192/EEC [See amending acts]
In view of the considerable progress made towards the harmonisation of the veterinary sector, further measures should be taken for the computerization of veterinary import procedures.
These new measures are all the more necessary now that checks at internal borders have been abolished.
This Decision provides for measures for the computerization of veterinary procedures comprising:
- an information procedure in cases where an official veterinarian at a border inspection post rejects a consignment;
- databases containing full information on Community import requirements for animals and products.
The equipment used at border inspection posts may be that used in connection with the ANIMO system.
