COMMISSION DECISION of 25 June 2010 amending Decision 2008/855/EC as regards animal health control measures relating to classical swine fever in feral pigs.

In order to better control the spread of classical swine fever, it is appropriate to provide for certain animal health control measures targeting the feral pig population affected by that disease. In particular, a prohibition on the dispatch from the areas listed in the Annex to Decision 2008/855/EC of consignments of live feral pigs and of fresh meat, meat preparations and meat products consisting of or containing such meat should be laid down.

It is however appropriate to permit that consignments of fresh meat of feral pigs, meat preparations and meat products consisting of or containing such meat be dispatched from those areas to other areas not listed in the Annex to Decision 2008/855/EC, provided that virological tests are performed in accordance with Decision 2002/106/EC, that the results of those tests are negative and that the competent veterinary authority of the place of destination gives its prior approval.

The following Article 8b is inserted in Decision 2008/855/EC:
‘Article 8b
Measures relating to live feral pigs, fresh meat, meat preparations and meat products consisting of or containing meat from feral pigs
1. The Member States concerned with areas listed in the Annex shall ensure that:
(a) no live feral pigs from the areas listed in the Annex are dispatched to other Member States or to other areas in the territory of the same Member State;
(b) no consignments of fresh meat of feral pigs, meat preparations and meat products consisting of or containing such meat from the areas listed in the Annex are dispatched to other Member States or to other areas in the territory of the same Member State.
2. By way of derogation from paragraph 1(b), the Member States concerned with areas listed in Parts I and II of the Annex may authorise the dispatch of consignments of fresh meat of feral pigs, meat preparations and meat products consisting of or containing such meat from those areas to other areas not listed in the Annex, provided that:
(a) the pigs have been tested with negative results for classical swine fever according to any of the diagnostic procedures described in Part A(1), Part B or Part C of Chapter VI of the Annex to Decision 2002/106/EC;
(b) the competent authority of the place of destination gives its prior approval.’
