LAWS & REGULATIONS
At a Glance


 

Laws and regulations
designed to limit the
spread of Johne's disease.

Line

Certification programs may be part of such laws and regulations (certification programs are dealt with separately on this website).




Laws and regulations, in addition to certification programs, help to limit the spread of Johne's disease. Since these laws are vary by state, country and animal species, only a general description and some examples are provided here.


Table Bottom

Laws and regulations considered here are mainly concerned with movement of test-positive animals. These laws are very specific for each country, province or state and animal species, and this website makes no attempt to keep abreast of all Johne's disease laws and regulations in every country. As new laws and regulations concerning Johne's disease become known, however, we will present them as examples of how different countries are using laws and regulations to help control this disease. Visitors are encouraged to get specific information via the links page and/or from print materials provided in the Articles and Brochures section of this website.

Examples

In the U.S., effective May 10, 2000, domestic animals that test positively for Johne's disease by an organism detection-based test (e.g., culture, or DNA probe) conducted by an approved laboratory can not be moved interstate except for slaughter (some exceptions apply). Details of these regulations can be found in a 5 page excerpt from the Federal Register, April 10, 2000.
