The fight of R.E.A.D.C against abuses in the sanitary veterinary system continue
Dear Animal Lovers
Thursday, 28.03.2019, will be a busy dayfor the R.E.A.D.C. Association at the Court of Appeals Cluj, where two of the lawsuits filed by our association against A.N.S.V.S.A. will take place.
1. We have appealed against A.N.S.V.S.A. for the illegality of the structure of the microchip code for identifying existing dogs in Romania.
Following the current regulation, by which the structure of the microchip code was established, the national legislation contradicts the international rules and does not comply with the ISO rules, which relate to uniqueness and traceability.
R.E.A.D.C. has contracted a microchips manufacturer to manufacture transponders for us, for use in our work in Romania, but we have been informed that such microchips cannot be produced in the current form because they do not comply with the International ISOrules. Thus in Order No. 1/2014 of the A.N.S.V.S.A. the ISO rules are not complied with, as it stipulates boththe existence of the country and producer code, but Romania having a country code (642) should only apply it and the producers to create transponders with this code.
The problem of the Romanian transponder code structure was supported in the trial by the expert, invited by our association, Mr. Dr. Vet. Sven Hüther, ISO and ICAR consultant.
We have also filed a letter received by our Association from the Global Standard for Livestock Data ICAR, which clearly states the irregularities in the current form of the microchip structure.
We hope that, following the debates, the President of the Court of Appeal will understand the principles on which the drafting of this code is based: transparency and traceability, and make a favorable decision in the correct identification of animals and this illegality is just one of the 3 that hijacks the anti-rabies vaccination action.
2. In 28.03.2019, from 11.00,at the Court Of Appeal Cluj will take place and the trial filed by our Association against A.N.S.V.S.A. requesting the cancellation of art. 2 lit. K and art. 9 para. 4 first sentence of the Annex of Order No. 1/2014 of A.N.S.V.S.A., indicating that the Register of Dogs with Owners (R.E.C.S.) is in the C.M.V.management
Noting that a national register of public interest was given in the management of a private body, an O.N.G. of veterinarians (C.M.V.), without a public and transparent auction, without being specified in the law and rules the costs applied to animal owners atthe enroll in R.E.C.S., we decided to formulate the appeal to court.
The 5 million dog owners and a further 5-6 million cat owners are part of the compulsory and free national anti-rabies vaccination action, and the conditional of payment on free negotiation with the doctor, or fixed payments, baffle the fight against communicable diseases from animal to human, concern public health and animal welfare, which forces us to get back to the Constitutional Court of Romania.
The R.E.C.S. was set up and created at national level with the intention of serving an entire country, being therefore of public interest and free of charge, such as the Agricultural Register and not a privatized one, but the data concerned must be public, to be accessed by citizens.
A public service related to public health, as guaranteed by the Constitution, created with money that is not known exactly where it came from, is given in the use and administration of a non-governmental entity.
The transparency that existed when the register was free and was at a public authority, simply disappeared with Order No. 1/2014 of the A.N.S.V.S.A.
Without any reasoning or explanation, a national public register was simply privatized.
