The rules, imposed in July this year, initially until January, require imports of live pigs to be accompanied by a certificate stating the pigs are PEDv-free and have not been anywhere near a PEDv infection.

The extended regulation notes advice from the European Food Safety Authority that animals, their faeces, feed and objects contaminated with faeces are capable of transmitting the virus.
