COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2023/594

of 16 March 2023

laying down special disease control measures for African swine fever and repealing Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605

(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 71(3) and 259(1) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

African 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)

Regulation (EU) 2016/429 establishes a legislative framework for the prevention and control of diseases, which are transmissible to animals or humans. African swine fever falls within the definition of a listed disease in that Regulation, and it is subject to the disease prevention and control rules laid down therein. In addition, the Annex to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1882 (2) lists African swine fever as a category A, D and E disease affecting Suidae, while Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/687 (3) supplements the rules for the control of category A, B and C diseases laid down in Regulation (EU) 2016/429, including disease control measures for African swine fever.

(3)

Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4) lays down animal health rules for animal by-products in order to prevent and minimise risks to animal health arising from those by-products. In addition, Commission Regulation (EU) No 142/2011 (5) lays down certain animal health rules for animal by-products falling within the scope of Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009, including rules regarding the certification requirements for movements of consignments of those by-products in the Union. Those Regulations do not cover all the specific details and aspects in relation to the risk of the spread of African swine fever through animal by-products obtained from porcine animals kept in restricted zones II and III and animal by-products obtained from wild porcine animals from restricted zones I, II and III. It is therefore appropriate to lay down in this Regulation special disease control measures related to those animal by-products and movements of consignments of such animal by-products from restricted zones I, II and III.

(4)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 (6) was adopted within the framework of Regulation (EU) 2016/429, and it lays down special disease control measures regarding African swine fever to be applied for a limited period of time by the Member States listed in Annex I thereto, in restricted zones I, II and III, as listed in that Annex. The rules laid down in that Implementing Regulation were aligned, as much as possible with international standards such as those set out in Chapter 15.1 ‘Infection with African swine fever virus’ of the Terrestrial Animal Health Code of the World Organization for Animal Health (7) (WOAH Code).

(5)

This Regulation should also provide for a regionalisation approach, which should apply in addition to the disease control measures laid down in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/687 and it should list the restricted zones of Member States affected by outbreaks of African swine fever or at risk due to their proximity to such outbreaks (the Member States concerned). Those restricted zones should be differentiated by the epidemiological situation of African swine fever and the level of risk and classed as restricted zones I, II and III, with restricted zone III listing the areas with the highest level of risk for the spread of that disease and the most dynamic disease situation in kept porcine animals. In addition, those restricted zones should be listed in Annex I to this Regulation taking account of the information provided by the competent authorities of the Member States concerned as regards the disease situation, scientifically based principles and criteria for geographically defining regionalisation due to African swine fever, and the Union’s guidelines on African swine fever agreed with the Member States within the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed and publicly available on the Commission’s website (8), as well as the level of risk for the spread of African swine fever and the overall epidemiological situation of African swine fever in the Member State concerned and in the neighbouring Member States or third countries, where relevant. Furthermore, any subsequent amendments of the boundaries of the restricted zones I, II and III in Annex I to this Regulation should be based on similar considerations as were used for listing and should take account of international standards, such as WOAH Code, indicating the absence of the disease for a period of at least twelve months in the zone or a country. In certain situations, taking account of the justification provided by the competent authority of the Member State concerned and scientifically based principles and criteria for geographically defining regionalisation due to African swine fever and guidelines available at Union level, that period should be reduced to three months.

(6)

Since the date of adoption of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605, the epidemiological situation in the Union has evolved and new experience and knowledge on the epidemiology of African swine fever has been gathered in the Member States. Therefore, it is appropriate to review and adapt the current special disease control measures for African swine fever laid down in that Implementing Regulation taking account of those developments and in order to prevent the spread of that disease in the Union. Accordingly, the special disease control measures laid down in this Regulation should take account of the experience gained in the application of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605.

(7)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 lays down special disease control measures for African swine fever that, in general, apply to movements from restricted zones I, II and III of consignments of porcine animals kept in those restricted zones and products thereof. However, the movements of consignments of porcine animals kept in restricted zones I, II and III and products thereof within the restricted zones also present risks in relation to the spread of that disease and contribute to the lengthy persistence of the disease in those restricted zones. Therefore, taking account of the epidemiological situation of African swine fever in the Member States concerned, it is appropriate to lay down specific prohibitions and risk mitigating measures for the movements of consignments of kept porcine animals within those restricted zones and expand the scope of the current special disease control measures laid down in Union rules accordingly.

(8)

In the past, to ensure an effective and quick reaction to emerging risks, such as confirmation of an outbreak of African swine fever in a previously disease-free Member State or zone, individual Commission Implementing Decisions were adopted, where relevant, to rapidly identify at Union level the restricted zone for outbreaks of African swine fever in kept porcine animals, which comprised protection and surveillance zones, or the infected zone in the case of an outbreak of that disease in wild porcine animals, as provided for in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/687. In order to ensure clarity and transparency of Union rules, it is appropriate that following confirmation of an outbreak of African swine fever in kept or wild porcine animals in a previously disease-free Member State or zone, the concerned areas are identified at Union level as protection and surveillance zones or, in the case of wild porcine animals, as an infected zone and listed in Annex II to this Regulation with the duration of that regionalisation. In order to ensure a territorial continuity of restricted zones for kept or wild porcine animals, in specific situations and taking account of the risk assessment, where relevant, it should also be possible to list previously disease-free zones after the confirmation of an outbreak of African swine fever as restricted zones II or III in Annex I to this Regulation instead of listing these zones in Annex II hereto.

(9)

Taking account of the evolving epidemiological situation of African swine fever in wild porcine animals in the Union, the special disease control measures, including relevant derogations, applicable to restricted zones II laid down in this Regulation should also apply in the infected zones listed in Annex II hereto, in addition to the measures laid down in Articles 63 to 66 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/687. However, due to the immediate risk of the further spread of that disease detected in wild porcine animals, movements of consignments of kept porcine animals and products thereof to other Member States and to third countries should not be authorised from the infected zones listed in Annex II hereto.

(10)

Article 16(2) of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 provides for a derogation from the requirement for stock-proof fencing for certain establishments of kept porcine animals for a period of three months after the confirmation of a first outbreak of African swine fever in the Member State subject to certain conditions. Taking account of the specific situation in the Member States when such stock-proof fences cannot be built within a short period of time for technical and administrative reasons, it is appropriate to provide for an extended period of six months in this Regulation, in order to ensure the proper implementation of the special disease control rules for African swine fever in a previously disease-free Member State or zone.

(11)

Articles 166 and 167 of Regulation (EU) 2016/429 require that consignments of products of animal origin from terrestrial animals produced or processed in establishments, food businesses or zones subject to emergency measures or movement restrictions, must be accompanied by the relevant animal health certificates. Article 19 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 lays down operators obligations with regard to animal health certificates for movements of consignments of fresh meat and meat products, including casings, obtained from porcine animals from restricted zones I, II and III and lists the consignments for which the health or identification mark may substitute the animal health certificate for movements of certain consignments from those restricted zones. In order to ensure the implementation of the special disease control rules for African swine fever, it is necessary to lay down adapted provisions in this Regulation related to the list of establishments for which the competent authority of the Member State concerned may substitute the animal health certificate with the health or identification mark for movements of certain consignments.

(12)

Article 10 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 lays down specific prohibitions in relation to movements of consignments of germinal products obtained from porcine animals kept in restricted zones II and III outside those restricted zones. In addition, Article 31 of that Implementing Regulation lays down for specific conditions for derogations authorising movements of consignments of germinal products obtained from porcine animals kept in a restricted zone II from that restricted zone in the territory of the same Member State. Taking account of the high level of biosecurity measures in place in approved germinal product establishments, specific conditions for derogations authorising movements of consignments of germinal products obtained from porcine animals kept in a restricted zone III from that restricted zone in the territory of the same Member State should be laid down in this Regulation. Amongst other conditions, such movements should only be authorised by the competent authority of the Member State concerned if donor males and donor females were kept at approved germinal product establishments since birth or for a period of at least three months prior to the collection of the germinal products as provided for in the WOAH Code. Based on the WOAH Code, it is appropriate to lay down also the obligation to test, at least annually, for African swine fever all kept porcine animals in approved germinal product establishments that are authorised for movements of consignments of germinal products from restricted zone III.

(13)

Article 14 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 lays down the general conditions for derogations from specific prohibitions in relation to movements of consignments of porcine animals kept in restricted zones I, II and III outside those zones. Article 14(1), point (a), of that Regulation refers to a general condition laid down in Article 28(2), point (a), of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/687, that requires all authorised movements in the protection zone to be performed exclusively via designated routes. Taking account of other risk-mitigating measures in place for the movements of consignments of porcine animals kept in restricted zones I, II and III provided for in this Regulation and in order to avoid unnecessary restrictions, a reference to the general conditions to grant derogations from prohibitions in the protection zone of Article 28 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/687 should be replaced by a reference to the general conditions for granting derogations from prohibitions relevant to the surveillance zone of Article 43 of that Delegated Regulation, that requires, among other, that all authorised movements are performed prioritising major highways or mainline railways.

(14)

Article 35 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 lays down specific conditions for authorising movements of consignments of category 3 materials obtained from porcine animals kept in restricted zones II outside those restricted zones within the same Member State for the purpose of the processing of animal by-products by pressure sterilisation or certain alternative methods, manufacturing of pet food and for the transformation of animal by-products and derived products into biogas or compost as provided for in Regulation (EC) No 1069/2009. Taking account of the effectiveness of the relevant processing methods to mitigate risks of African swine fever, it is appropriate also to lay down in this Regulation specific conditions for authorising movements of consignments of Category 3 materials obtained from porcine animals kept in a restricted zone III outside that restricted zone within the same Member State for the purpose of the processing of animal by-products by pressure sterilisation or certain alternative methods, the manufacturing of pet food and for the transformation of animal by-products and derived products into biogas or compost.

(15)

Article 44 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 provides for special health or, where relevant, identification marks for certain products of animal origin. These products should be marked with a special health mark or, where relevant, an identification mark that is not oval and cannot be confused with the health mark or identification mark provided for in Article 5(1) of Regulation (EC) No 853/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council (9). Taking account of the rules laid down in that Regulation and for the effective application of the special disease control rules for African swine fever concerning movements within or from restricted zones of certain consignments of fresh meat and meat products obtained from kept or wild porcine animals and in the interests of clarity, a concrete shape of special marks should be laid down in this Regulation, which provides a comprehensive set of technical measures for the control of that disease. In addition, a transitional period for a harmonised shape of such special marks should be introduced to take account of the specific situation of competent authorities and food business operators in Member States affected by African swine fever that need to make the necessary arrangements to ensure compliance with this Regulation.

(16)

The experience gained in the fight against African swine fever in the Union shows that certain risk mitigation and reinforced biosecurity measures are necessary in order to prevent the spread of that disease in establishments of kept porcine animals. These measures should be laid down in the Annex III to this Regulation and should cover establishments subject to derogations laid down for movements of consignments of porcine animals kept in the restricted zones I, II and III.

(17)

Since the date of adoption of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605, the epidemiological situation in the Union has further evolved with respect to African swine fever in several Member States, in particular in populations of wild porcine animals, which have played a major role in the transmission and persistence of the virus in the Union. Despite the disease control measures taken by the Member States in accordance with Union rules, wild porcine animals continue to be a major source of transmission and persistence of the presence of that disease in the Union. The outbreaks of that disease in porcine animals present a risk also to the disease-free Member States due to the movements of wild porcine animals or as part of human mediated spread through infected materials. Taking into account the current epidemiological situation in the Union as regards African swine fever, well-co-ordinated and consistent control measures should be taken by the Member States. The application of special disease control measures before the introduction of African swine fever have been also recommended through the scientific advice provided by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in its Scientific Opinion of 12 June 2018 on African swine fever in wild boar (10) and in the Scientific Report of 18 December 2019 on Epidemiological analyses of African swine fever in the European Union (11).

(18)

Accordingly, in order to avoid the spread of African swine fever by wild porcine animals, well-coordinated measures by the Member States are crucial to circumvent a duplication of efforts. This Regulation should therefore provide for an obligation on the Member States to establish National action plans for wild porcine animals in order to avoid the spread of African swine fever in the Union, by ensuring a coordinated and consistent approach across the Member States (national action plans). Minimum requirements for the national action plans should take account of scientific advice provided by EFSA, in particular on preventive measures to reduce and stabilise wild boar density before the introduction of that disease, passive surveillance, biosecurity measures during the hunting of wild porcine animals, in order to provide for a harmonised approach in the Member States. These national action plans and the annual results of their implementation should be presented to the Commission and to the other Member States.

(19)

The wild porcine animals management measures taken in the context of the national action plans should be compatible, where relevant, with Union environmental rules, including the nature protection requirements, laid down in Directive 2009/147/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (12) and Council Directive 92/43/EEC (13).

(20)

In order to take account of the recent developments in the epidemiological situation of African swine fever in the Union, new experience and knowledge gathered in the Union, and in order to combat the risks associated with the spread of that disease in a proactive manner, revised and extended special disease control rules should be laid down in this Regulation. Accordingly, Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 should be repealed and replaced by this Regulation.

(21)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/605 applies until 20 April 2028. Taking account of the current epidemiological situation of African swine fever in the Union, it is necessary to maintain the special disease control measures laid down in this Regulation until that date.

(22)

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

CHAPTER III

SPECIAL DISEASE CONTROL MEASURES APPLICABLE TO CONSIGNMENTS OF PORCINE ANIMALS KEPT IN RESTRICTED ZONES I, II AND III AND PRODUCTS OBTAINED THEREOF IN THE MEMBER STATES CONCERNED

SECTION 1

Application of specific prohibitions on movements of consignments of kept porcine animals and products thereof in the member states concerned

Article 9

Specific prohibitions on movements of consignments of porcine animals kept in restricted zones I, II and III within and outside those restricted zones

1.   The competent authority of the Member State concerned shall prohibit movements of consignments of porcine animals kept in restricted zones I, II and III within and outside those restricted zones.

2.   The competent authority of the Member State concerned may decide that the prohibition provided for in paragraph 1 shall not apply to:

(a)

movements of consignments of porcine animals kept in a restricted zone I to establishments located in the same or other restricted zones I, to restricted zones II and III or outside those restricted zones provided that the establishment of destination is located in the territory of the same Member State concerned;

(b)

movements of consignments of porcine animals kept in confined establishments located in restricted zones I, II and III provided that:

(i)

the competent authority of the Member State concerned assessed the risks arising from such movements and that assessment indicated that the risk of the spread of African swine fever is negligible;

(ii)

the porcine animals are only moved to another confined establishment located in the same Member State concerned.

3.   By way of derogation from the prohibitions provided for in paragraph 1 of this Article, the competent authority of the Member State concerned may authorise movements of consignments of porcine animals kept in restricted zones I, II and III within and outside those restricted zones in the cases covered by Articles 22 to 31 subject to compliance with the specific conditions laid down in those Articles.

Article 10
