The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr. Aurelio Iragorri Valencia, announced that Colombia received the WOAH’s certificate that confirms that the main pig producing area in Colombia is free of classical swine fever (CSF).

The area certified as free of CSF includes the departments of Chocó, Caldas, Quindío, Risaralda, Valle del Cauca and some municipalities in Antioquia and Cauca. These departments hold more than 70% of the Colombian pig production.

The President of PorkColombia, Mr. Carlos Maya, pointed out that “after a joint hard work for many years and a very high investment by the pig producers through the National Pig Production Fund, we are very happy to receive this news. For a sector that shows a tremendous real potential for exportation, attaining this ‘free without vaccination’ certification for one of the main diseases that limit international trade is a great achievement.”

The certificate was handed, in the context of the WOAH’s General Session no. 85, to the ICA’s Animal Health Technical Director, Mr. Mario Eduardo Peña, by the WOAH’s General Director, Ms. Monique Eloit and the WOAH’s President, Mr. Botlhe Michael Modisane, in Paris (France).

This acknowledgement is based on the documents presented to the WOAH by the Colombian delegate, that has the obligation of notifying the WOAH the existence of any epidemiologic situation regarding CSF and of confirming, annually, that the epidemiologic situation in Colombia has not changed, in accordance with the regulations of the WOAH’s Health Code for Terrestrial Animals.
