THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Directive 2001/89/EC of 23 October 2001 on Community measures for the control of classical swine fever (1), and in particular the fifth subparagraph of Article 16(1) and the fifth subparagraph of Article 20(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Decision 2003/135/EC of 27 February 2003 on the approval of the plans for the eradication of classical swine fever and the emergency vaccination of feral pigs against classical swine fever in Germany, in the federal states of Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland (2) was adopted as one of a number of measures to combat classical swine fever.

(2)

Germany has informed the Commission about the recent evolution of that disease in feral pigs in certain areas of the federal states of North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate.

(3)

That information indicates that classical swine fever in feral pigs has been eradicated in certain areas in the south of Rhineland-Palatinate and in the region of Eifel. Accordingly, the eradication and emergency vaccination plans for classical swine fever in feral pigs no longer need to be applied in those particular areas.

(4)

Decision 2003/135/EC should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The Annex to Decision 2003/135/EC is replaced by the text in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Federal Republic of Germany and the French Republic.

Done at Brussels, 29 March 2010.
