As part of the Department of Environment’s commitment to protect animal health and welfare, Hugh Morris was commissioned to help the Disease Control Management Team prepare a contingency plan for notifiable animal diseases.
The plans detail the control measures to be taken if there is an invasion of exotic notifiable animal disease.
- confirmation of disease
- cleaning and disinfection
- proving disease freedom post outbreak
As well as fulfilling States policy, these measures are required by our obligation to meet EU legislation if we wish to trade and accord with best practice. Examples of the type of disease covered are Classical Swine Fever and Foot and Mouth Disease.
