Establishment of a foot and mouth disease containment zone

Colombia

Colombia submitted documentation requesting the evaluation of the establishment of a containment zone following outbreaks of foot and mouth disease (FMD) in the zone of Colombia recognised as free from FMD with vaccination reported to the OIE on 24 June 2017. The described containment zone is composed of the Department of Arauca and parts of Boyacá, Casanare and Cundinamarca Departments.

The Scientific Commission for Animal Diseases (Scientific Commission), by electronic correspondence amongst its members, considered the information provided by the Delegate of Colombia. Based on the documentation submitted and in accordance with Resolution No. 15 of the 83rd General Session “Procedures for Member Countries for the official recognition and maintenance of disease status of certain animal diseases or risk status of bovine spongiform encephalopathy and for the endorsement of national official control programmes”, the Scientific Commission concluded that Colombia was compliant with the provisions of Article 8.8.6. of the Terrestrial Animal Health Code (2017) on the establishment of a containment zone. This circumscribed containment zone had been established around the affected areas as described in detail in the documentation submitted to the OIE by the Delegate of Colombia on 21 November 2017.

In accordance with the procedures adopted by the World Assembly of Delegates in May 2015, the "FMD free zone where vaccination is practised" status for the zone of Colombia, as recognised by the OIE World Assembly of Delegates in terms of Resolution No. 22 in May 2017, is re-instated with immediate effect from 11 December 2017, with the exception of the territory of the containment zone.
