Due to the African swine fever situation in Russia and in Belarus, the Commission adopted Implementing Decision 2013/426/EU laying down measures which provide amongst others for appropriate cleansing and disinfection of ‘livestock vehicles’ having transported live animals and which enter the Union from those two countries. The same measures were extended to Ukraine by Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2015/1752.
Following recent notifications of African swine fever outbreaks in Moldova, the existing measures of cleansing and disinfection provided for in Implementing Decision 2013/426/EU should also be extended to the vehicles entering the Union from Moldova.
The list of third countries and parts of territory of third countries where the presence of African swine fever virus is confirmed, as provided for in Annex I of Implementing Decision 2013/426/EU, should therefore be amended accordingly.
