This describes the measures that would apply in the event of an outbreak of Classical Swine Fever (CSF). It also summarises the wider framework that’s in place to prevent and limit such an outbreak.

This is endorsed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), the Scottish Government and the Welsh Assembly Government. Responsibility for management of an outbreak would fall to the respective governments.

This control strategy was prepared in consultation between government, delivery agents, veterinary profession, and organisations representing pig producers and processors.
