By Commission Decision 2009/11/EC, the use of four methods for grading pig carcasses in Spain was authorised. Spain has stated that due to new technological developments and the development of new versions of two devices authorised in Spain it is necessary to calibrate those new devices in order to obtain new formulas for their use in Spain. In a significant group of slaughterhouses in Spain the number of slaughters does not exceed 500 pigs per week on yearly average basis. A method for pig carcass classification appropriate to their slaughter capacity is therefore needed. Spain has requested the Commission to authorise three new methods for grading pig carcasses on its territory and has presented a detailed description of the dissection trial. Examination of that request has revealed that the conditions for authorising those grading methods are fulfilled. Those grading methods should therefore be authorised in Spain (Decision 2012/384/EU).

By Commission Decision 2009/12/EC, the use of six methods for grading pig carcasses in Denmark was authorised. Denmark has stated that the development of the automatic equipment, AutoFOM, in a version called ‘version III’ makes its use and calibration aimed at Danish slaughterhouses desirable. It is therefore necessary to obtain the formula for this new method. Denmark has requested the Commission to authorise that new method for grading pig carcasses on its territory and has presented a detailed description of the dissection trial. Examination of that request has revealed that the conditions for authorising that grading method are fulfilled. That grading method should therefore be authorised in Denmark (Decision 2012/385/EU).
