Wednesday 2 April 2014 (4 years 1 months 25 days ago)

The European Commission has established control measures relating to African swine fever in Poland, Lithuania and Sardinia (Italy) by Commission Implementing Decision 2014/178.

Member States and areas concerned are listed in an Annex differentiated by the level of risk considering the epidemiological situation of African swine fever and whether it concerns both pigs holdings and the feral pig population, only the feral pig population or the risk is due to certain proximity to the infection in the feral population.

The dispatch of live pigs and their semen, ova and embryos, animal by-products of porcine origin as well as the dispatch of certain meat, meat preparations and meat products from designated zones of the Member States listed in the Annex to this Decision should be prohibited.

In order to take account of the different risk levels depending on the type of porcine commodities and the epidemiological situation in the Member States concerned, it is appropriate to provide for certain derogations for each type of porcine commodity from the territories listed in the different Parts of the Annex. Those derogations are also in line with the risk mitigation measures for importation as regards African swine fever indicated in the Terrestrial Animal Health Code of the World Organization for Animal Health. The additional safeguard measures and health requirements or treatments applicable for those derogations should also be provided for in this Decision.
