Defra s existing contingency plan for foot and mouth disease has been continuously reviewed and updated in light of experiences and lessons learned from the 2001 outbreak.

The latest version of Defra s Foot and Mouth Disease Contingency Plan has been laid before Parliament in accordance with Section 18 of the Animal Health Act 2002, and will be reviewed at least annually to meet the provisions of the Animal Health Act.

Defra s Foot and Mouth Disease Contingency Plan sets out the operational arrangements Defra intends to put in place to deal with any occurrence of foot and mouth disease and records the policy on which the operational arrangements are based.

The Plan has been the subject of consultation with stakeholders and, as a living document , it is expected that it will be subject to ongoing revision taking on the latest scientific advice, developments in policy and comments from stakeholders and operational partners. The Contingency Plan has also been split into three parts for easier download:
  • Disease Control (Slaughter) Protocol  (30 KB)
  • The Decision Tree  (618 KB) - outlines the measures that may be taken to slaughter or vaccinate animals in the event of an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD). It sets out the factors the Government will take into account in deciding which strategy to adopt in order to control and eradicate the disease in the future.
