In December 2017 and January 2018, a number of cases of African swine fever in wild boar were observed in Poland, Lithuania and Latvia. These cases constitute an increased level of risk that should be reflected in the Annex to that Implementing Decision. Accordingly, some areas which are affected by these cases of African swine fever in wild boar should now be listed in Part II of the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU, instead of in Part I thereof. In addition, other areas which are located near the areas where the cases of African swine fever have been observed should now be listed in Part I of that Annex.

In addition, in January 2018, an outbreak of African swine fever in domestic pigs occurred in eastern (powiat radzyński) part in Poland. This area is currently listed in Part II of the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. The occurrence of this outbreak constitutes an increase in the level of risk that should be reflected in the Annex to that Implementing Decision. Accordingly, the relevant area of Poland should now be listed in Part III instead of Part II of that Annex.

By contrast, to date, there has been no notification of any case of African swine fever in domestic pigs or wild boar in the southern areas of okres Zlín in the Czech Republic which are currently listed in Part II of the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. In line with the surveillance data provided by the Czech Republic, these areas should now be listed in Part I of the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU, instead of in Part II thereof.
