In relation to Aujeszky's disease, to date, the whole territory of Poland is currently listed in Annex II to Decision 2008/185/EC (Member States or regions thereof where approved national control programmes for the eradication of Aujeszky's disease are in place). Nevertheless, Poland has now submitted to the Commission supporting documentation for the regions augustowski, białostocki, Białystok, bielski, hajnowski, moniecki, sejneński, siemiatycki, sokólski, suwalski and Suwałki to be considered free of Aujeszky's disease, and for those regions to be duly listed in Annex I to Decision 2008/185/EC. Following the evaluation of that supporting documentation, those regions should no longer be listed in Annex II to Decision 2008/185/EC, but instead they should be listed in Annex I thereto (Member States or regions thereof free of Aujeszky's disease and where vaccination is prohibited).
The COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2017/888 of 22 May 2017 amends Decision 2008/185/EC as regards the Aujeszky's disease-free status of certain regions of Poland.
