The Scottish Government, Defra and Welsh Government (the GB Administrations) have worked together to prepare a Foot and Mouth Disease Control Strategy for Great Britain (the ‘Strategy’). The aim of the Strategy is to consolidate GB Administrations current policies and response to control an outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD). The Strategy encompasses existing legislation, setting out control measures to be put in place from suspicion of FMD through to regaining disease freedom and reflects the existing disease response set out in Scottish Government's Exotic Animal Disease Contingency Framework Plan: Annex 4 FMD. It does not take account of the work currently in progress by Scottish Government as part of its review of Movement Licences, Carcase Disposal, Vaccination and Access in the Restricted Zone. However, the Strategy is a living document and will be regularly reviewed to take account of changes in Government policy.
