Colombia resumes the importation of live pigs from US and Canada

There were trade restrictions due to the presence of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhoea (PED) in both countries.

Thursday 25 September 2014 (3 years 7 months 29 days ago)

The Colombian Agriculture and Livestock Institute (ICA) has resumed the importation of live pigs for reproduction from US and Canada, whose trade was restricted due to the presence of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhoea (PED) in both countries.

The reopening of the market for the importation of pigs from these two countries is the result of health-related negotiations that guarantee that the imported animals do not represent a health risk for Colombian pig production.

It was also agreed, together with the Canadian government, that the diagnostic tests performed on the animals during the official quarantine in the country of origin must be carried out only by laboratories that fulfil the ISO 17025 standards and regulations and certified by the Standards and Certifications Canadian Council and accredited by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
