From today, Friday 18 December, it is a legal requirement to notify APHA of suspect and confirmed cases of PED in pigs in England.

This measure has been introduced by government following discussions between pig industry bodies and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). Unlike other notifiable diseases in pigs, there is no legislative requirement for official testing, culling, movement controls or other restrictions. Controlling the disease will be industry-led.

Under the new legislation, the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) is legally permitted to inform the industry levy board, Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board Pork (AHDB Pork) of all suspect and confirmed cases. AHDB Pork will use this information for the purposes of disease control, by providing biosecurity advice to the pig unit concerned and alerting those at risk.
