Japan – Suspension of CSF-free status

Font size - A A A +

Japan was officially recognised as a classical swine fever (CSF)-free country by the OIE in 2015. Following an immediate notification received from the OIE Delegate of Japan on an outbreak of CSF in Gifu City, the ‘CSF free country’ status of Japan was suspended with effect from 3 September 2018.

According to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the suspension of an officially recognised disease status, the country has two years to recover its previously recognised status by complying with the relevant requirements of the Terrestrial Animal Health Code.
