加拿大,欧盟达成非洲猪瘟(ASF)分区协议


协议应允许来自无ASF区域的猪肉和猪肉副产品的持续贸易

加拿大食品检验局(CFIA)和欧洲委员会卫生和食品安全部门(DG SANTE)已同意非洲猪瘟(ASF)分区协议,以便在ASF爆发时,从无病区安全交易猪肉产品。

这是加拿大政府继续采取行动保护加拿大猪只和经济的一部分,因为ASF正在亚洲和欧洲部分地区蔓延。对加拿大农民和生产者有利的是,该安排应该允许来自无ASF区域的猪肉和猪肉副产品的持续贸易。

分区制是一种国际公认的方法,用于帮助管理疾病和促进国际贸易。如果在某一地区确认有ASF阳性病例,则界定地理边界以控制疫情。这些地理边界是根据世界动物卫生组织(OIE)原则建立的控制区,这些控制区以外的地区是无病区。

虽然加拿大与欧盟已经根据《加拿大与欧盟全面经济贸易协定》(CETA)制定了适用于ASF的分区原则,但这一安排是在国际合作方面向前迈出的又一步,有助于在保持安全贸易的同时降低ASF的风险。

这一安排是加拿大正在努力保护加拿大猪肉产业的关键一步。猪肉是加拿大第四大农业部门,每年为加拿大经济贡献约240亿加元(183亿美元)。

加拿大农业部长Marie-Claude Bibeau表示“通过持续的国际合作,加拿大的政府正在发挥领导作用,防止和减轻ASF的潜在影响。最近宣布加拿大、美国分区安排后,我们已经与欧盟达成类似协议, 万一ASF在加拿大发生,我们的农民可以继续以猪肉和猪肉产品贸易维持生计。”

Canada, EU reach ASF zoning agreement
Agreement should allow for continued trade of pork and pork by-products from ASF-free zones

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the European Commission’s Department of Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) have agreed to an African swine fever (ASF) zoning arrangement to allow for safe trade of swine products from disease-free zones in the event of an ASF outbreak.
This is part of the Government of Canada’s continued actions to protect Canadian pigs and the economy in light of the pace at which ASF is spreading through parts of Asia and Europe. Benefiting Canadian farmers and producers, the arrangement should allow for continued trade of pork and pork by-products from ASF-free zones.
Zoning is an internationally recognized tool used to help manage diseases and facilitate international trade. If a positive case of ASF is confirmed in an area, geographic boundaries are defined to contain the outbreak. These geographic boundaries are control zones established in accordance with World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) principles. The areas outside of these control zones are disease-free zones.
While there are zoning principles already in place with the EU that apply to ASF under the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), the arrangement is an additional step forward in international collaboration in mitigating the risk of ASF while maintaining safe trade.
This arrangement is a key step in Canada’s ongoing efforts to safeguard Canada’s pork industry. Pork is Canada’s fourth-largest agricultural sector, contributing about CA$24 billion (US$18.3 billion) to the Canadian economy annually.

“Through continued international collaboration, the Government of Canada is taking a leadership role in preventing and mitigating the potential impact of ASF, should it be introduced to Canada. Following the recently announced Canada/US zoning arrangement, we have now reached a similar arrangement with the EU so that our farmers can continue to earn their livelihoods from the trade of pork and pork products in case ASF is found in Canada," said Marie-Claude Bibeau, Canada’s minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.
