Animal Health: Commission updates veterinary measures to control African swine fever and avian influenza


Yesterday, Member States’ experts approved a Commission Implementing Decision relating to animal health control measures for African swine fever. The Decision, which amends Decision 2014/709/EU, reviews the control measures in place for ASF, to combat the spread of the disease.

The draft also updates the regionalisation for the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Romania in order to help control the spread of the disease.

Today, a Commission Implementing Decision on protective measures in relation to highly pathogenic avian influenza also obtained a favourable opinion from the Committee. The Decision, which amends Implementing Decision (EU) 2017/247, updates the regionalisation measures due to new outbreaks of the disease in Italy.

The updated measures aim at protecting the EU single market from these serious contagious animal diseases. The Commission continues to follow the evolution of the epidemiological situation and adapts the measures accordingly.
