Local Member Protocol – Trading Standards – New Avian Influenza Measures
As members may already be aware, overnight the Secretary of State approved an order to make the whole of England an Avian Influenza Prevention Zone for the next 30 days, in order to help protect poultry from a strain of Avian Influenza in Europe.
Outbreaks of a highly pathogenic strain of Avian Influenza have been confirmed in poultry and wild birds in several countries in Europe. No cases have been found in the UK and this Order is a precautionary measure to help prevent potential infection from wild birds. Poultry keepers are being urged to reinforce biosecurity measures at their premises.
This Prevention Zone introduces mandatory enhanced biosecurity measures and requires the immediate housing of poultry, or where this is not practical, their separation from wild birds. Other captive birds should also be kept separate from wild birds. Keepers should also ensure that poultry and other captive birds are provided with feed and water that is not accessible to wild birds. A link to a copy of the order and the information regarding the latest situation can be found here:https://www.gov.uk/guidance/avian-influenza-bird-flu#prevention-zone
Public Health England advises that the threat to human health remains very low.
As this note was being issued we should also make you aware that the Welsh and Scottish Governments have also declared prevention zones across Wales and Scotland. Details can been seen at the respective links below:
