Preliminary outbreak assessments

Preliminary outbreak assessments are now available on GOV.UK.

When Defra becomes aware of a new animal disease outbreak in another country, we may carry out a preliminary outbreak assessment. If this preliminary assessment concludes that a full qualitative risk assessment is not justified then we will publish the preliminary outbreak assessment here.

11 December 2013: Rabies in the Netherlands - Following further testing at the OIE and European Rabies Reference Laboratory, the Netherlands authorities have confirmed that the presence of rabies virus could not be detected in the two puppies of Bulgarian origin imported from a rescue centre. As a result, the original report made to the OIE will be deleted and our POA has similarly been removed.
