Swine vesicular disease (SVD), a notifiable disease, was detected in Italy for the first time in 1966. The regions in the north of Italy were acknowledged as free of SVD in 1997, whilst in the southern regions its control has been more gradual due to their peculiarities regarding pig production, mainly characterised by small farms with a small number of pigs.

The outbreaks of the disease were reported to the WOAH/OIE every six months during the period in which the disease was present in certain southern regions. After the improvement in the epidemiologic situation regarding swine vesicular disease in the regions of Campania and Calabria, in which since June 2015 no outbreaks have been detected and that reached the SVD-free status in 2017, the European Commission recognised Italy as a SVD-free territory by means of Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/470 of March 20th, 2019.

This acknowledgement by the European Commission has allowed the Italian authorities to present, last August 8th, before the WOAH/OIE, the self-declaration as a SVD-free country.
