European Community - Agriculture - Common agricultural policy in beef and veal - Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) - Powers of member states - Whether compensation payable to farmers following the slaughter of United Kingdom calves ordered during the bovine spongiform encephalopathy crisis in March 1996 - Council Directive (EEC) 90/425 and Commission Regulation (EC) 717/96.
On a reference from a Dutch court to the Court of Justice of the European Communities for a preliminary ruling on questions relating to the interpretation of Council Directive 90-425 EEC and Commission Regulation 717-96 EC arising out of the possible link between BSE and CJD in humans and the BSE crisis in the UK, the court ruled that: (i)under Directive 90-425, Member States were entitled to order the slaughter of young bovine animals which had originated from the UK and adopt ancillary compensation measures; and (ii) Regulation 717-96 precluded the amount of compensation from being determined by national provisions from the date upon which it became applicable.
