Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is a food-borne zoonotic disease with large implications not only for animal and public health but also for international trade in bovines and bovine derived products.
SAFOSO supported the States of Jersey to bring together the data and information necessary to achieve official recognition by the OIE of the BSE risk status of the territory and to document it in a report.Our work included bringing together and analysing data regarding the importation of potential risk commodities, BSE surveillance and monitoring systems, BSE prevention and control measures, and the BSE history of the island. Our work was conducted in close coordination with the States Veterinary Officer and will provide the basis for a submission of a formal dossier to the OIE.
