COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2022/845

of 30 May 2022

amending Annexes V and XIV to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/404 as regards the entries for the United Kingdom and the United States in the lists of third countries authorised for the entry into the Union of consignments of poultry, germinal products of poultry and fresh meat of poultry and game birds

(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 Articles 230(1), 232(1) and 232(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) 2016/429 requires that consignments of animals, germinal products and products of animal origin must come from a third country or territory, or zone or compartment thereof, listed in accordance with Article 230(1) of that Regulation in order to enter the Union.

(2)

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/692 (2) lays down the animal health requirements with which consignments of certain species and categories of animals, germinal products and products of animal origin from third countries or territories, or zones thereof, or compartments thereof, in the case of aquaculture animals, must comply with in order to enter the Union.

(3)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/404 (3) establishes the lists of third countries, or territories, or zones or compartments thereof, from which the entry into the Union of the species and categories of animals, germinal products and products of animal origin falling within the scope of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/692 is permitted.

(4)

More particularly, Annexes V and XIV to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/404 set out the lists of third countries, or territories, or zones thereof authorised for the entry into the Union, respectively, of consignments of poultry, germinal products of poultry, and of fresh meat from poultry and game birds.

(5)

The United States notified the Commission of two outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza in poultry: one outbreak is located in the state of Idaho, United States and the other in the state of Michigan, United States and they were confirmed on 10 May 2022 by laboratory analysis (RT-PCR).

(6)

In addition, the United States notified the Commission of an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza in poultry. The outbreak is located in the state of Minnesota, United States, and was confirmed on 11 May 2022 by laboratory analysis (RT-PCR).

(7)

Moreover, the United States notified the Commission of an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza in poultry. The outbreak is located in the state of Wisconsin, United States, and was confirmed on 13 May 2022 by laboratory analysis (RT-PCR).

(8)

Additionally, the United States notified the Commission of an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza in poultry. The outbreak is located in the state of Pennsylvania, United States, and was confirmed on 14 May 2022 by laboratory analysis (RT-PCR).

(9)

The veterinary authorities of the United States established a 10 km control zone around the affected establishments and implemented a stamping-out policy in order to control the presence of highly pathogenic avian influenza and limit the spread of that disease.

(10)

The United States have submitted information to the Commission on the epidemiological situation on their territory and the measures they have taken to prevent the further spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza. That information has been evaluated by the Commission. On the basis of that evaluation and in order to protect the animal health status of the Union, the entry into the Union of consignments of poultry, germinal products of poultry, and fresh meat from poultry and game birds from the areas under restrictions established by the veterinary authorities of the United States due to the recent outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza should no longer be authorised.

(11)

Moreover, the United Kingdom has submitted updated information on the epidemiological situation on its territory in relation to six outbreaks of HPAI in poultry establishments: two outbreaks near Leeming Bar, Hambleton, North Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom, confirmed on 14 and 24 November 2021, two outbreaks near Willington, South Derbyshire, Derbyshire, England, United Kingdom, confirmed on 19 November 2021 and 11 December 2021, one outbreak near Clitheroe, Ribble Valley, Lancashire, England, United Kingdom, confirmed on 28 November 2021 and one outbreak near Watlington, King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, Norfolk, England, United Kingdom, confirmed on 26 December 2021. The United Kingdom has also submitted the measures it has taken to prevent the further spread of that disease. In particular, following these outbreaks of HPAI, the United Kingdom has implemented a stamping out policy in order to control and limit the spread of that disease. In addition, the United Kingdom completed the requisite cleaning and disinfection measures following the implementation of the stamping out policy on the infected poultry establishments on its territory.

(12)

The Commission has evaluated the information submitted by the United Kingdom and concluded that the HPAI outbreaks near Leeming Bar, Hambleton, North Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom, near Willington, South Derbyshire, Derbyshire, England, United Kingdom, near Clitheroe, Ribble Valley, Lancashire, England, United Kingdom and near Watlington, King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, Norfolk, England, United Kingdom in poultry establishments have been cleared and that there is no longer any risk associated with the entry into the Union of poultry commodities from the zones of the United Kingdom from which the entry into the Union of poultry commodities have been suspended due to these outbreaks.

(13)

Annexes V and XIV to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/404 should be therefore amended accordingly.

(14)

Taking into account the current epidemiological situation in the United States as regards highly pathogenic avian influenza and the serious risk of its introduction into the Union, the amendments to be made to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/404 by this Regulation should take effect as a matter of urgency.

(15)

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

Annexes V and XIV to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/404 are amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2
