Considering that the presence of porcine epidemic diarrhea in the United States and Canada, caused by the emerging alphacoronavirus and the new porcine deltacoronavirus may constitute a risk for the animal health status of the Union, the Commission has considered it necessary to review the animal health requirements for the entry of consignments of porcine animals into the Union from the areas in which the disease caused by these viruses is present in order to provide the necessary guarantees at the holding of origin and avoid the introduction of porcine epidemic diarrhoea caused by those viruses in the Union.

Due to the need to protect animal health in the Union and the serious threat posed by the introduction into the Union of live pigs for breeding and/or production the Commission should adopt provisional safeguard measures for consignments of those animals from affected third countries listed in Annex I to the Regulation 750/2014. Accordingly, consignments of those animals should be accompanied by a health certificate in accordance with the model set out in Annex II to this Regulation which provides for specific guarantees in regard of porcine epidemic diarrhoea caused by the emerging alphacoronavirus and the new porcine deltacoronavirus

Due to the serious risk to animal health posed by those consignments, those provisional safeguard measures entered into force on Saturday and will apply for a period of 6 months.
