COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/2158

of 6 December 2021

amending Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/934 laying down special control measures for classical swine fever

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2016/429 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2016 on transmissible animal diseases and amending and repealing certain acts in the area of animal health (‘Animal Health Law’) (1), and in particular Article 71(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Classical swine fever is an infectious viral disease affecting kept and wild porcine animals and can have a severe impact on the concerned animal population and the profitability of farming causing disturbance to movements of consignments of those animals and products thereof within the Union and exports to third countries.

(2)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/934 (2) was adopted within the framework of Regulation (EU) 2016/429, and it lays down special disease control measures regarding classical swine fever to be applied for a limited period of time by the Member States listed in Annex I thereto in the restricted zones listed in that Annex.

(3)

Taking into account the effectiveness of the surveillance and control measures undertaken in Bulgaria in accordance with Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/687 (3) and Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/934, as presented by Bulgaria to the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed, and in view of the favourable epidemiological situation of classical swine fever in that Member State, the whole territory of Bulgaria currently listed as a restricted zone in Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/934 should now be deleted from that Annex.

(4)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/934 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

In view of the improvements in the epidemiological situation of classical swine fever in Bulgaria and in order to ensure no undue restrictions concerning that disease, the amendments to be made to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/934 by this Regulation should take effect as soon as possible.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Annex I to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/934 is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 6 December 2021.
