USA: Regions affected with ASF updated to include Mongolia

Effective January 15, 2019, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) will add Mongolia to the list of regions that APHIS considers to be affected by African swine fever (ASF).

On January 15, 2019, Mongolia reported an outbreak of ASF. APHIS already considers Mongolia to be affected by three diseases that affect porcine species (e.g., foot and mouth disease, classical swine fever, and swine vesicular disease), so the current import requirements for porcine derived products and by-products from Mongolia may not change.

However, Customs and Border Protections will refer to the updated country disease status lists when regulating these porcine materials, including those found in passenger baggage. ASF has also spread through China and through several EU Member States, including Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Romania.
