Self-declaration

 

 

In accordance with the provisions of the Terrestrial Animal Health Code (Terrestrial Code) or the Aquatic Animal Health Code (Aquatic Code), OIE Members may wish to self-declare the freedom of their country, zone or compartment from a disease. A Member wishing to publish its self-declaration for disease-freedom, should provide the relevant documented evidence of compliance with the provisions of the relevant chapters of the Codes.
Publications of self-declaration of disease freedom are handled in an objective and transparent manner, governed by the Standard Operating Procedure here below.

Download the Standard Operating Procedure

OIE Members can also submit for publication, a self-declaration of an Equine Disease-Free Zone (EDFZ). The EDFZ contains an equine population or subpopulation with a specific health status with respect to certain equine diseases for which freedom is declared by the Veterinary Authority. Establishing an EDFZ is a risk-based approach which can be considered by OIE Members planning to host international horse sports competitions. By establishing an EDFZ, disease-risks in the zone can be mitigated in advance for horses to safely enter and return to their countries of origin or to other destinations. Guidelines to support countries in the establishment of an EDFZ and the publication of their self-declaration are available to download: “OIE EDFZ guidelines"
