COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2015/1405

of 18 August 2015

amending the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU concerning animal health control measures relating to African swine fever in certain Member States, as regards the entries for Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania

(notified under document C(2015) 5912)

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Directive 89/662/EEC of 11 December 1989 concerning veterinary checks in intra-Community trade with a view to the completion of the internal market (1), and in particular Article 9(4) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 90/425/EEC of 26 June 1990 concerning veterinary and zootechnical checks applicable in intra-Community trade in certain live animals and products with a view to the completion of the internal market (2), and in particular Article 10(4) thereof,

Having regard to Council Directive 2002/99/EC of 16 December 2002 laying down the animal health rules governing the production, processing, distribution and introduction of products of animal origin for human consumption (3), and in particular Article 4(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU (4) lays down animal health control measures in relation to African swine fever in certain Member States. The Annex to that Decision demarcates and lists certain areas of those Members States differentiated by the level of risk based on the epidemiological situation. That list includes certain areas of Estonia, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.

(2)

In August 2015, several outbreaks of African swine fever in domestic pigs were notified by Estonia within the areas listed in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. One of these outbreaks in domestic pigs occurred in Part III (in proximity of Part I) of that Annex and another outbreak occurred in Part II of that same Annex.

(3)

In August 2015, two outbreaks of African swine fever in domestic pigs were notified by Latvia within the areas listed in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. These outbreaks occurred in areas listed in Part II of that Annex.

(4)

In August 2015, several outbreaks of African swine fever in domestic pigs were notified by Lithuania within the areas listed in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU. Six of these outbreaks occurred in the areas listed in Part II of that Annex.

(5)

The evolution of the current epidemiological situation in the Union as regards African swine fever should be considered in the assessment of the risk represented by the animal health situation as regards that disease in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. In order to focus animal health control measures and to prevent the further spread of African swine fever, as well as to prevent any unnecessary disturbance to trade within the Union and to avoid unjustified barriers to trade by third countries, the Union list of areas subject to the animal health control measures set out in the Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU should be amended to take into account the current animal health situation as regards that disease in those Member States.

(6)

Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The Annex to Implementing Decision 2014/709/EU is replaced by the text in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2
