What are the turn-around times for testing? What has been done to ensure enough resource is in place to process tests?
APHA has undertaken recruitment to ensure that sufficient resource is in place to maintain current testing times for EVA and EIA, as well as the additional diseases that might need to be tested for should the UK be assigned to sanitary group B. APHA Weybridge will endeavour to put all submissions up to test on the next available test run. The maximum turnaround time for EVA testing is 12 working days and for the current EIA test (Coggins test) the maximum turnaround time is 5 working days. These maximum times are to allow for re-testing where necessary.
