Compartmentalisation guidelines for ASF


This set of guidelines aims to assist World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) Members and stakeholders of the pig industry in the practical implementation of compartmentalisation specifically for African swine fever (ASF).

This document details specific recommendations and provides guidance on key aspects of the compartmentalisation process. These include the definition of an ASF-free compartment, the pork supply chain, risk assessment, biosecurity, surveillance, diagnostic capabilities and procedures, traceability, public−private partnerships (PPPs), the regulatory framework, approval and recognition of ASF-free compartments, and responses to changes of ASF status, within and outside the compartment. It also provides a number of tools in the Appendices that may be applied to facilitate the implementation and recognition of compartments.
