PED becomes notifiable in Scotland today

Legislation to make PED a notifiable disease in Scotland came into force today.  However, the arrangements for reporting PED are different to those for other notifiable diseases. Suspicions of PED must be reported to the Scottish Pig Disease Control Centre (telephone 01466 705247) who will provide advice. There will be no mandatory restrictions or culling if PED is suspected or confirmed.

Information on PEDv is available on the Disease Information page within the Resources area.
