Philippines: DA chief orders ban on FMD-susceptible imported products

The temporary ban affects animals that may be susceptible to FMD and their products and by-products, coming from Chungcheongbuk-Do, Korea; Jiangsu, China; and Caprivi, Namibia.

Tuesday 20 January 2015 (3 years 4 months 29 days ago)

Department of Agriculture (DA) Secretary Proceso J. Alcala has ordered the temporary ban on the importation of livestock animals that may be susceptible to foot and mouth disease, their products and by-products, coming from Chungcheongbuk-Do, Korea; Jiangsu, China; and Caprivi, Namibia.

The temporary prohibition took effect through Memorandum Orders 98, 100 and 102, respectively, in December 2014 to protect the health of the local livestock population, and consequently, food safety in the country.

Alcala added that being FMD-free will be an advantage to the Philippines as the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) integrates and opens a free regional market this year.
