Following the confirmation of an outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) in wild boars in Lithuania, and in order to prevent any unnecessary disturbance to trade within the Union and to avoid unjustified barriers to trade by third countries, the European Commission has established, in collaboration with Lithuania, a list of the restricted zones for African swine fever.

Accordingly, pending the meeting of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health, the Commission has published the Decision 2014/43/UE where the restricted areas are specified. These restrictions include: intensified surveillance of wild boars and pigs, sending samples to the EU Reference laboratory in Spain for more detailed analysis, and keeping pigs isolated in their holding, unless authorised by the competent authority. The dispatch of live pigs, pig semen, ova and embryos is banned and pig meat from the infected area covering six districts (Trakai, Šalčininkai, Lazdijai, Varėna, Alytus and Druskininkai) cannot be dispatched out of the country.

This Decision shall apply until 15 February 2014.
