European Union: more areas subject to the animal health control measures due to ASF

The Commission has decided to amend the list of areas subject to animal health control measures due to ASF.

Thursday 9 April 2015 (2 years 10 months 9 days ago)

Due to the current situation of classical swine fever (ASF) in the European Union, with new cases in domestic pigs in Poland and several cases in wild boar in Lithuania, Poland and Latvia, and in order to focus animal health control measures and to prevent the spread of African swine fever, as well as to prevent any unnecessary disturbance to trade within the Union and to avoid unjustified barriers to trade by third countries, the Union list of areas subject to the animal health control measures provided for in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU should be amended to take into account the current animal health situation as regards that disease in Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.

Furthermore the Commission has thought it appropriate to review Article 7 of Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU, providing for a derogation from the prohibition on the dispatch of consignments of animal by-products from porcine animals from the areas listed in Parts III and IV of the Annex to that Implementing Decision, in order to allow for a safe disposal of animal by-products of porcine origin other than feral pigs, including unprocessed bodies of dead animals, from holdings located in the areas listed in Part III of the Annex in a manner that is in line with the risk represented by these animal by-products.
