Consultation description

We want your view on plans to make porcine epidemic diarrhoea (PEDv) a notifiable disease in England. PEDv poses a significant risk to pig herds in England.

Proposals include sharing suspect/confirmed case details with Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) Pork. This would allow them to assist with early identification and containment of any disease outbreak and increase the likelihood of eliminating the disease.
