Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 750/2014 was adopted following reports of a novel swine enteric coronavirus disease caused by emerging porcine alphacoronaviruses, including porcine epidemic diarrhoea virus and a new porcine deltacoronavirus in North America. That Implementing Regulation lays down protection measures in relation to the introduction into the Union of consignments of live pigs for breeding and production from the areas in which the disease caused by those viruses is present in order to provide for the fulfilment of the necessary guarantees at the holding of origin and to prevent the introduction of porcine epidemic diarrhoea caused by those viruses into the Union. Those protection measures are to apply until 12 January 2015.
Implementing Regulation (EU) No 750/2014 was amended by Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1306/2014 in order to extend its date of application until 31 October 2015.
In light of the evolution in the disease situation in the third countries concerned and in the absence of new scientific information, the protection measures established by Implementing Regulation (EU) No 750/2014 should be prolonged until the end of October 2016.
