Regulatory Officials

The SPS Plan was developed to provide guidance on issuing movement permits for animals moving from production sites with no evidence of infection to another site and to harvest. This business continuity approach for the pork industry aligns with your goals of containing disease and controlling its spread while ensuring a secure food supply for consumers.

The SPS Plan acknowledges that decisions will be made by Regulatory Officials based on the unique characteristics of the outbreak.

Guidelines for Classification of Phases and Types of ASF Outbreak and Response is designed to aid rapid decision making to facilitate response planning and development of business continuity plans in the event of an ASF outbreak in the United States or North America.

FMD, CSF, and ASF are not public health or food safety concerns. Meat will still be safe to eat.
