Making PEDv notifiable may help us to maintain or regain or export markets

Other countries often want us to declare that we don’t have a disease. This is very difficult if the disease is not notifiable because all we can say is that we don’t know. If we make PEDv notifiable and we get the disease it will be easier to say that certain regions are free so that we can carry on exporting and that the whole country is free once the disease has been eradicated.

Why the contribution is important

This is important because exports play a big part in the pig price thanks to our success in opening up new markets for British Pork.
