Country Freedom

FMD is the first disease for which the OIE established an official list of free countries and zones. The OIE has defined a transparent, science-based and impartial procedure for the recognition of FMD disease status of Member Countries and Territories in their entirety or defined zones.

Categories for FMD disease status include:

  • FMD free without using vaccination
  • FMD free with use of vaccination
