PRRS will have new designations as of January 2nd 2018
The designations for PRRS in the Danish SPF system will be changed as of January 2nd 2018. The previous DK will change into PRRS-1, whereas Vac will change into PRRS-2.
It is hoped that this change will give rise to less misunderstandings, especially when pigs are exported from Denmark.

PED now appears from Zoosanitary Status 
Several countries have been asking for facts concerning occurrence of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea, PED, in Denmark when purchasing pigs – especially breeding stock.

The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration, DVFA, has accepted PED – though not an OIE disease - to be part of the Zoosanitary Status.


PED has never occurred in Denmark. Please, note that PED has a note stating "Notification is pending”, as there is no legislation on PED in Denmark at the present time, and therefore  the applicable law awaits a revision.
