Mexico: free of Classical swine fever

Wednesday 5 September 2012 (5 years 9 months 13 days ago)

The Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA) of Mexico declared the territory of the United Mexican States free of classical swine fever (CSF).

In the agreement published in the Official Journal of the Federation (DOF) on August 14, SAGARPA indicates that the declaration was issued due to the fact that since November 10, 2005 there has been no detection or isolation of the etiologic agent of classical swine fever.

The fight against this disease started in Mexico on March 25, 1980, when through a paper published in the DOF, the National Campaign against swine cholera was established, and on September 28, 1992, the name was changed for Classical Swine Fever. Afterwards, on October 29, 1996, the Official Standard NOM-037-ZOO-1995, National Campaign against CSF was published in the DOF, which established the procedures, activities, criteria, strategies and operational techniques for diagnosis, prevention, control, and eradication of the disease.

Currently, according to the technical data of sanitary actions taken, it is confirmed that effective surveillance, prevention and control has been carried out, by taking samples of sera and organs from technified pig farms and backyard farms, nationally.

The agreement published today states that, in order to ensure that the territory of the United Mexican States remains free of CSF, they need to continue observing the prevention, diagnosis and monitoring of the disease according to national guidelines for epidemiological surveillance for this disease based with Articles 160 and 161 of the Federal Law of Animal Health.
