Red Wattle Export to Canada

Postby jmyers » Mon Mar 08, 2021 1:30 pm

IDENTIFICATION + TRACEABILITY FOR PIGS
Identification and movement reporting requirements for pigs are in effect in Canada. Farmed wild boars, pigs for
scientific use and pigs used as pets (such as miniature pigs*) are also subject to these requirements.
For detailed information on identification and traceabilty requirements for imported pigs, please consult CFIA's
website at:
http://inspection.gc.ca/animals/terrest ... 1128784262 or contact your CFIA district office.
*It is very important to note that pigs used as pets are considered by CFIA to represent the same level of animal
disease risk as farmed pigs and must therefore, meet CFIA's import conditions for breeding pigs, including testing
and quarantine."

USDA Official Zoosanitary Export Certificate must be issued by a USDA veterinarian, or issued by a licensed

1) All states in which the animal(s) have resided in the past twenty-one (21) days must have been free from
clinical and epidemiological evidence of vesicular stomatitis during the twenty-one (21) days immediately prior to
export to Canada.
The animal(s) being presented for importation must have been either resident in the U.S.A. for at least sixty (60)
days immediately prior to the date of exportation, or resident since birth or hatching.
The swine must be inspected prior to export; must have resided in the USA since birth, or must have met all the
import requirements of the USA and has resided in the USA for the past sixty (60) days; and must be tested for
pseudorabies and brucellosis. The herd of origin of the swine must be free from pseudorabies and brucellosis.

1) the animals were inspected by a veterinarian within thirty (30) days preceding the date of importation;
2) the animals were found by a veterinarian to be free from any communicable disease;
3) the animals were, to the best of the knowledge and belief of a veterinarian, not exposed to any communicable
disease within sixty (60) days preceding the date of inspection;
4) the animal is free from:
a. pseudorabies, as determined by a serum neutralization test, indirect ELISA against whole virus antigen, or
blocking ELISA detecting antibodies against the gB antigen of the Pseudorabies virus/Aujesky's Disease (
PRV/ADV gB Ab ELISA Test);
and,
b. brucellosis, as determined by negative results having been obtained using the Fluorescence Polarization Assay
(FPA), indirect ELISA (I-ELISA) or other test approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for this purpose
and conducted within thirty (30) days preceding the date of shipment from the place where the animal was kept.
The tests were performed in a laboratory that is approved to perform the test by the official veterinary service of
the country of export. The results of the brucellosis test (including the type of test performed) are shown on the
required health certificate for the animal to be imported; and,
5) the herd in which the animal was kept during the twelve (12) months preceding the date of shipment has been
free from pseudorabies and brucellosis during such period so far as can be determined by blood test or from
herd history.
The animal(s) being presented for importation shall not come into contact with any animals, products, or
equipment of lesser health status during the period between required testing and export to Canada. In addition,
no new animals shall be added to the group intended for export, unless these animals have sanitary guarantees
similar to those of the rest of the group.
The animals must be shipped in vehicles that have been cleaned and disinfected.

POST-ENTRY CONDITIONS
During post-entry quarantine in Canada, the animals were tested for pseudorabies and brucellosis with negative
results.
The animal(s) must be imported into Canada through a medium level quarantine facility approved by the
Canadian Food Inspection Agency for that purpose. The import quarantine facility must have been previously
approved for use as a medium security quarantine facility by a veterinary inspector designated under the Health
of Animals Act. The facility evaluation shall include: location, fencing, physical structure, lighting, water supply,
waste disposal, vector and pest control, movement of people, staff, security, cleaning and disinfection protocols. A
report that the facility has been approved must have been issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
The animal(s) to be exported to Canada must be transported directly from the point of export to the quarantine
facility. The vessel, aircraft or vehicle must not stop en route without written authorization from the CFIA
appended to the permit or the license. No other animals of a lesser health status are permitted on the same
conveyance. Manure, feed and bedding that is off-loaded from the conveyance in which the animals were
transported must be disposed of in a manner approved by an inspector designated under the Health of Animals
Act. The animals will be inspected on arrival at the port of entry by a veterinary inspector designated under the
Health of Animals Act. If found healthy, the animals must be transported directly to the quarantine facility. The
transportation of the animals from the port of arrival to the quarantine facility must be in vehicles which have
been cleaned and disinfected in a manner satisfactory to an inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act.
Prior to entry of the animals, the approved quarantine premises must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected in a
manner satisfactory to an inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act. No animals other than the
imported animals may enter into the approved quarantine premises following the completion of the cleaning and
disinfection. Upon arrival at the quarantine facility any litter, surplus feed and the shipping crates, containers or
conveyance used to transport the animals must be cleaned and disinfected or disposed of, in a manner
satisfactory to an inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act. Facility personnel at the quarantine must
not have contact with other livestock during the quarantine period. During the quarantine the importer must
immediately report any sickness or deaths affecting the imported animals to the nearest inspector designated
under the Health of Animals Act, in order that an examination may be conducted and that specimens may be
collected and forwarded to a laboratory approved by the CFIA. All garbage generated in the quarantine facility
must be stored there until periodically licensed out of the area for disposal in a manner satisfactory to an
inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act. No animal must be moved from their respective quarantine
premises until duly discharged by an inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act.
The animals in the post-import quarantine must have had negative results on all required test according to CFIA
standards in order for the animals to be released into Canada.
The animal(s) being presented for importation must be quarantined for a minimum of thirty (30) days or a longer
period of time as necessary to complete the tests required to meet the import conditions. The samples for
required testing in post-import quarantine must be taken minimum 21 days after entering the post-import
quarantine. The animals must be quarantined at the premises previously approved for such purpose by a
veterinary inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act.
