African swine fever (ASF) is one of the most important diseases of swine, due to the rapid and fatal spread causing great implications in international trade of swine products and animals (1). Since the eradication of the disease from the Iberian Peninsula in 1995, ASF has been restricted to Sub-Saharan countries and Sardinia (Italy). However, in the last decade, the epidemiology and distribution of the disease changed with the increased number of outbreaks in African countries, and the new aff ected areas in the European continent (Russian Federation and Caucasian countries). The closeness of the European Union (EU) with these new affected territories and the high probability of Russian Federation to become endemic due to the presence of infected wild boars and the huge volume of unauthorized trade and transport in the area (2), convert ASF as a potential risk for EU. In order to prevent the potential entrance and the negative impact of ASF within the EU borders, a risk assessment is necessary to detect the potential risk factors and to update the current surveillance and control programmes. This risk assessment will consider the following ways for the potential introduction of ASF in the EU: legal trade (live animals and products), illegal trade, wild animals, vectors and fomites. The study presented analyzes the risk of introduction of ASF in the EU by legal trade of live animals
