The Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health voted in favour of European Commission proposals with regard to classical swine fever (CSF) in Germany, Luxembourg, France and Spain.

The export of live pigs and porcine semen, ova and embryos from some areas bordering France, Germany and Luxembourg has been banned. For Spain, the existing measures, applicable until 31 May, will be extended until 30 June. The proposals will now be adopted by the Commission. The situation will be reviewed at the next meeting of the Committee, scheduled for 4-5 June.
