COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/620

of 15 April 2021

laying down rules for the application of Regulation (EU) 2016/429 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the approval of the disease-free and non-vaccination status of certain Member States or zones or compartments thereof as regards certain listed diseases and the approval of eradication programmes for those listed diseases

(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 31(3) and 36(4) and Article 37(4)(a) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) 2016/429 establishes a new legislation framework for the prevention and control of diseases, which are transmissible to animals or humans. In particular, Regulation (EU) 2016/429 lays down disease-specific rules for the diseases listed in accordance with Article 5(1) thereof (listed diseases), and Article 9 thereof provides how those rules are to be applied to different categories of listed diseases. Regulation (EU) 2016/429 also provides for the Member States to establish compulsory eradication programmes for the listed diseases referred to in Article 9(1)(b) thereof, and for optional eradication programmes for listed diseases referred to in Article 9(1)(c) thereof, and for the approval of such programmes by the Commission. In addition, it provides for the approval by the Commission of the disease-free status or non-vaccination status of Member States or zones or compartments thereof with regard to certain listed diseases referred to in Article 9(1)(a), (b) and (c) of Regulation (EU) 2016/429.

(2)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1882 (2) defines listed diseases into Categories A to E diseases, and provides that the disease prevention and control rules for listed diseases referred to in Article 9(1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/429 are to apply to the categories of listed diseases for the listed species and groups of listed species referred to in the table set out in the Annex to that Regulation. This Regulation should lay down rules that concern Category A, Category B or Category C diseases.

(3)

Regulation (EU) 2016/429 regards the following as listed diseases: infection with Brucella abortus, B. melitensis and B. suis, infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC), infection with rabies virus (RABV), enzootic bovine leucosis (EBL), infection with bluetongue virus (serotypes 1-24) (infection with BTV), bovine viral diarrhoea (BVD), infectious bovine rinotracheitis/infectious pustular vulvovaginitis (IBR/IPV), infection with Aujeszky’s disease virus (ADV), infestation with Varroa spp., infection with Newcastle disease virus, infection with highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), viral haemorrhagic septicaemia (VHS), infectious haematopoietic necrosis (IHN), infection with highly polymorphic region deleted infectious salmon anaemia virus (HPR-deleted ISAV), infection with Marteilia refringens, infection with Bonamia exitiosa, infection with Bonamia ostreae, and infection with white spot syndrome virus (WSSV). All those listed diseases fall within the definitions of Category A, Category B or Category C diseases laid down in Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1882, and are duly listed in the table in the Annex to that Implementing Regulation.

(4)

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/689 (3) supplements the rules on eradication programmes and disease-free status for certain listed diseases of terrestrial, aquatic and other animals, as provided for in Regulation (EU) 2016/429. In particular, Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/689 establishes criteria for the granting of disease-free status for Member States or zones or compartments thereof, and the requirements for the approval of eradication programmes for Member States or zones or compartments thereof.

(5)

Article 85 of Regulation (EU) 2020/689 provides that the Member States or zones thereof with an approved eradication programme or an approved surveillance programme for category C diseases before the date of application of that Regulation are to be deemed to have an approved eradication programme in accordance with that Regulation for a period of six years from the date of application of that Regulation. Accordingly, this limitation should be indicated in the relevant Annexes to this Regulation.

(6)

Article 280 of Regulation (EU) 2016/429 provides the rules for the maintenance of the existing disease-free status or approved eradication and surveillance programmes of Member States or zones or compartments thereof for certain listed diseases that were approved by Commission acts adopted in accordance with Council Directives 64/432/EEC (4), 91/68/EEC (5), 92/65/EEC (6), 2005/94/EC (7), 2006/88/EC (8) or 2009/158/EC (9). In addition, Articles 84 and 85 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/689 supplement the rules laid down in Regulation (EU) 2016/429 in that respect by laying down transitional measures concerning existing disease-free statuses, and existing approved eradication and surveillance programmes, with regard to those listed diseases.

(7)

For the sake of simplification and transparency, this Regulation should replace the lists of existing disease-free Member States, zones and compartments and the existing approved eradication and surveillance programmes set out in the Commission acts adopted pursuant to the Directives referred to in Article 280 of Regulation (EU) 2016/429 and in certain Directives referred to in Articles 84 and 85 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/689 with lists set out in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(8)

For certain listed diseases, Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/689 lays down rules for the first time for the approval of the disease-free status for Member States or zones or compartments thereof and therefore the provisions of Article 280 of Regulation (EU) 2016/429 do not apply to such situations. This is the case for infection with rabies virus (RABV), infection with bluetongue virus (serotypes 1-24) (infection with BTV), bovine viral diarrhoea (BVD) or infection with Bonamia exitiosa. Several Member States have submitted to the Commission applications to have disease-free status granted for those listed diseases. Following the assessment by the Commission, those applications have been shown to comply with the criteria of Sections 1 and 2 of Chapter 4 of Part II of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/689 that lay down rules for the granting of disease-free status for Member States or zones and compartments thereof. Therefore, the disease-free status of those Member States or the relevant zones or compartments thereof, should be granted and they should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(9)

For certain listed diseases, Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/689 lays down rules for the approval of eradication programmes for Member States or zones or compartments thereof that are not subject to the provisions of Article 280 of Regulation (EU) 2016/429. This is the case for infection with Brucella abortus, B. melitensis and B. suis, infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC), infection with rabies virus (RABV), enzootic bovine leucosis (EBL), infection with bluetongue virus (serotypes 1-24) (infection with BTV), bovine viral diarrhoea (BVD) or infection with Bonamia exitiosa. Several Member States have submitted to the Commission applications to have the eradication programmes approved for those listed diseases. Following the assessment by the Commission, those applications have been shown to comply with the criteria of Chapters 2 and 3 of Part II of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/689 that lay down criteria to be complied with for the approval of eradication programmes for Category B and Category C diseases of terrestrial and aquatic animals, respectively. Therefore, those eradication programmes should be approved and the Member States or zones and compartments thereof should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(10)

For certain listed diseases, applications from Member States to have disease-free status granted or to have eradication programmes approved have not yet been received by the Commission or their assessment has not yet been finalised. Once received or once the assessment is finalised the relevant Member States, zones or compartments may be listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(11)

In addition, for infection with Brucella abortus, B. melitensis and B. suis a Member States has recently submitted to the Commission an application to have disease-free status from infection with Brucella abortus, B. melitensis and B. suis granted for a zone. Following the assessment by the Commission, the application has been shown to comply with the criteria of Article 71 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/689 that lay down rules for the recognition of disease-free status based on eradication programmes. Therefore, the disease-free status of the zone should be granted and it should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(12)

With respect to avian influenza, Commission Regulation (EC) No 616/2009 (10), which was adopted pursuant to Directive 2005/94/EC, provides for the approval by the Member States of poultry compartments and other captive birds’ compartments. The list of approved compartments is publicly available and the Commission’s website includes links to the internet-based information pages of the Member States. Poultry compartments and other captive birds’ compartments approved with respect to avian influenza under Regulation (EC) No 616/2009 should have their disease-free status maintained in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/429 and should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(13)

Commission Decision 2003/467/EC (11) lists the Member States and regions thereof with tuberculosis-free status, brucellosis-free status and EBL-free status in accordance with Directive 64/432/EEC. Those Member States and regions thereof should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(14)

Commission Decision 93/52/EEC (12) sets out the list of Member States and regions thereof with official brucellosis-free (B. melitensis) status in accordance Directive 91/68/EEC. Those Member States and regions thereof should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(15)

Commission Implementing Decision 2013/503/EU (13) sets out the list of Member States or territories thereof which are recognised as free from varroosis in accordance with Directive 92/65/EEC. Those Members States or territories thereof should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(16)

Commission Decisions 94/963/EC (14) and 95/98/EC (15) establish the status of Finland and Sweden as ‘non-vaccinating’ as regards Newcastle disease in accordance with Directive 2009/158/EC. Those Member States should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(17)

Commission Decision 2004/558/EC (16) sets out the lists of regions of Member States that have the IBR-free status and the regions of Member States that have an approved IBR eradication programme in accordance with Directive 64/432/EEC. The regions with IBR-free status should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation, whereas the regions with approved IBR eradication programmes should maintain their programme for a limited period of time in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2020/689, and should be listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(18)

Commission Decision 2008/185/EC (17) sets out the lists of Member States or regions thereof that have the Aujeszky’s disease-free status and the regions that have an approved Aujeszky’s disease eradication programme in accordance with Directive 64/432/EEC. Those Member States or regions thereof with Aujeszky’s disease-free status should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation, whereas the regions with approved Aujeszky’s disease eradication programmes should maintain them for a limited period of time in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2020/689, and should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(19)

Commission Decision 2009/177/EC (18) establishes lists of Member States and certain zones and compartments with disease-free status, or subject to approved surveillance programmes or eradication programmes with regard to listed diseases of aquatic animals in accordance with Directive 2006/88/EC. The disease-free status of those Member States, zones and compartments should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation, whereas the approved programmes should be maintained for a limited period of time in accordance with Article 85 of Regulation (EU) 2020/689, and should be duly listed in the Annexes to this Regulation.

(20)

With regard to listed diseases of aquatic animals, there are certain disease-free zones and compartments, and approved surveillance programmes, not listed in Decision 2009/177/EC but lists of which are publicly available on the internet-based information pages of the Member States in accordance with Directive 2006/88/EC. Those zones and compartments should have their disease-free status maintained, whereas the programmes should be maintained for a limited period in accordance with Article 85 of Regulation (EU) 2020/689. Up-to-date information concerning the establishments that are located in those disease-free zones and compartments, or which are subject to those programmes, are set out in the publicly available internet page that has been established and maintained in accordance with Article 185(3) of Regulation (EU) 2016/429 and with Article 21(2) of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/691 (19).

(21)

As the lists set out in Decisions 93/52/EEC, 94/963/EC, 95/98/EC, 2003/467/EC, 2004/558/EC, 2008/185/EC and 2009/177/EC, Regulation (EC) No 616/2009 and Implementing Decision 2013/503/EU are being replaced by the lists set out in the Annexes to this Regulation, those acts should be repealed and replaced by this Regulation.

(22)

In accordance with the Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community (Withdrawal Agreement), and in particular Article 5(4) of the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland in conjunction with Annex 2 to that Protocol, Regulation (EU) 2016/429, as well as the Commission acts based on it, apply to and in the United Kingdom in respect of Northern Ireland after the end of the transition period provided for in the Withdrawal Agreement. For that reason, the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland) should be listed in the Annexes to this Regulation where relevant for Northern Ireland.
