EU extends protection measures against ASF

Following recent notifications of ASF outbreaks in Ukraine, the existing measures of cleansing and disinfection should also be extended to the vehicles entering the Union from Ukraine.

Monday 5 October 2015 (2 years 4 months 15 days ago)

Due to the African swine fever situation in Russia and in Belarus, the Commission adopted Implementing Decision 2013/426/EU laying down measures which provide amongst others for appropriate cleansing and disinfection of ‘livestock vehicles’ having transported live animals and feed and which enter the Union from those two countries.

Following recent notifications of ASF outbreaks in Ukraine, the existing measures of cleansing and disinfection should also be extended to the vehicles entering the Union from Ukraine.

The list of third countries and parts of territory of third countries where the presence of ASF virus is confirmed, as provided for in Annex I of Implementing Decision 2013/426/EU, should therefore be amended accordingly. Implementing Decision 2013/426/EU applies until 31 December 2015. Due to the unfavourable disease situation as regards ASF in the countries neighbouring the Union borders, and taking into account the epidemiology of ASF and the measures applicable in the Union as regards that disease, it is appropriate to extend this period until 31 December 2019.
