Bulgaria: restoration of status "FMD free country where vaccination is not practised"

Scientific Commission concluded that Bulgaria fulfils the requirements of the OIE Terrestrial Code to regain its status as a Member Country free from FMD where vaccination is not practised.

Friday 7 September 2012 (5 years 8 months 15 days ago)

Subsequent to the suspension of the FMD free status on 7 January 2011 following an outbreak of foot and mouth disease (FMD) in Kosti Village, province of Burgas, the Delegate of Bulgaria submitted a dossier on 29 May 2012 to the Director General requesting the re-instatement of the status of an FMD free country where vaccination is not practised in accordance with the relevant provisions of the OIE Terrestrial Animal Health Code (Terrestrial Code).

The Scientific Commission for Animal Diseases met from 27 to 31 August 2012 and considered the report and the recommendation of the ad hoc Group on evaluation of FMD status of Member Countries as well as the additional information Bulgaria submitted to the OIE on 23 July 2012. Based on the documentation submitted and in accordance with Resolution No.25 of the 80th General Session “Procedures for Member Countries for the official recognition and maintenance of status of certain animal diseases and the endorsement of a national official control programme for foot and mouth disease”, the Scientific Commission concluded that Bulgaria fulfils the requirements of the OIE Terrestrial Code to regain its status as a Member Country free from FMD where vaccination is not practised as recognised by the OIE World Assembly of Delegates in terms of Resolution No. X in May 1998, with effect from 31 August 2012.
