The aim pursued by the two Contracting Parties is to facilitate traffic in livestock and animal products in both directions between their respective countries. With a view to ensuring suitable sanitary conditions and preventing the spread of any contagious disease, traffic in livestock, ra w materials of animal origin (and any other products that are likely to transmit epizootic diseases) as well as traffic in meat, meat-based foodstuffs and fish shall take place only at frontier posts or airports. They shall also be subject to veterinary checks on both sides of the frontier. Article 1, paragraph 2 designates the frontier posts. Certificates of origin and health as well as sanitary certificates are required for traffic in livestock and products of animal origin. Articles 3-10 sp ecify the information to be provided in the above-mentioned certificates relating to animals such as ruminants, pigs and poultry, sheeps and goats, bees, horses, rabbits, cattle. According to article 11, fish and other fishery food products may be imported without a certificate, on condition that they fulfill the requirements thereof established. Consignments which do not comply with the requirements established by the Convention and livestock that, when crossing the frontier, is found or suspec ted by the competent veterinary authorities to be suffering from a contagious disease, shall be refused clearance (art. 12).

The Contracting Parties undertake to publish at least once a month a bulletin on their respective sanitary situation. Such bulletins shall thereafter be forwarded directly to the othe r Contracting Party. In case of dispute related to the interpretation or application of this Convention, the Parties shall submit it to a mixed commission.
