Wednesday 26 January 2011 (7 years 2 months 26 days ago)
COMMISSION DECISION of 19 January 2011 concerning certain protection measures against foot-and-mouth disease in Bulgaria.

The disease situation in Bulgaria makes it necessary to reinforce the control measures for foot-and-mouth disease taken by the competent authorities in Bulgaria.

It is appropriate to define as a permanent measure the high and low risk areas in the affected Member State and to provide for a prohibition on the dispatch of susceptible animals from the high and low risk areas and on the dispatch of products derived from susceptible animals from the high risk area. The Decision should also provide for the rules applicable to the dispatch from those areas of safe products that either had been produced before the restrictions, from raw material sourced from outside the restricted areas or that had undergone a treatment proven effective in inactivating possible foot-and-mouth disease virus.

derived from animals of susceptible species coming from or obtained from animals originating in the high risk areas listed in Annex I and should not affect transit through these areas of such products coming from or obtained from animals originating in other areas.

No live animals of the bovine, ovine, caprine and porcine species and other biungulates shall move between the areas listed in Annex I and Annex II.

No live animals of the bovine, ovine, caprine and porcine species and other biungulates shall be dispatched from or moved through the areas listed in Annex I and Annex II.

By way of derogation from paragraph 2, the competent authority of Bulgaria may authorise the transport of pigs from holdings outside the surveillance zone established in accordance with Article 21 of Directive 2003/85/EC for immediate slaughter at designated slaughterhouses situated in the areas listed in Annex II under the following conditions:

(c) no animals of species susceptible to foot-and-mouth disease have been introduced into the holding referred to in the introductory sentence of this paragraph during the 21 days prior to the date of loading, except in the case of pigs coming from a supplying holding which complies with the conditions laid down in point (b), in which case the period of 21 days may be reduced to 7 days;
(d) the transport of pigs is only authorised after the satisfactory completion of the measures provided for in Article 22(2) of Directive 2003/85/EC.
