The evolution of the current epidemiological situation of African swine fever in Latvia and Lithuania should be taken into account in the assessment of the animal health risk.

In February 2017, two outbreaks of African swine fever in domestic pigs occurred in the novads of Salaspils in Latvia and in the rajono savivaldybė of Biržai in Lithuania in areas which are currently listed in Part II of the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. The occurrence of these outbreaks constitutes an increase in the level of risk that needs to be taken into account. Accordingly, the relevant areas of Latvia and Lithuania listed in Parts I and II should now be listed in Part III of that Annex.

On the other hand, in January 2017, few cases of African swine fever in wild boar occurred in the novads of Talsu and Tukuma in Latvia in two areas currently listed in Part II of the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU but in close proximity to the areas listed in Part I of that Implementing Decision. The occurrence of these cases constitutes an increase in the level of risk that needs to be taken into account. Accordingly, the relevant areas of Latvia should now be listed in Part II, instead of Part I, of that Annex and new areas should be included in Part I of the Annex thereto.
