Exotic animal disease risk pathways and countermeasures report

This publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

This report reviews the ways by which an animal disease may enter Great Britain and cause a disease outbreak.



It reviews our confidence in the existing countermeasures in place to prevent or limit the spread of animal disease. 

The report does not cover those diseases which are known to be established in our current livestock population, such as Bovine TB.
