Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Description
IV.1.1)Type of procedure
Open procedure
Accelerated procedure
Justification:

The recent increase of LSD outbreaks in Greece and Bulgaria and the fact that LSD without proper control tends to spread unexpectedly over long distances mainly due to movements of animals, and over mid-distances exclusively due to vectors activity, makes that other Member States such as Romania are at direct risk too. Additional support in the form of LSD vaccines is also needed for the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to prevent further spread to other EU Member States.

The urgency of the situation renders the normal time limits for open procedures impracticable because vaccines must be administered before the end of the summer.
