What will the blood testing requirements be?
The UK has been placed in Sanitary Group A. This means equines will need tests for:
– equine infectious anaemia within 30 days of travel for permanent moves
– equine infectious anaemia within 90 days of travel for temporary moves under 90 days of equines registered with a national branch of an international body for sporting and competition purposes
– equine viral arteritis within 21 days of travel for uncastrated male equines older than 180 days, unless they meet other specific vaccination requirements specified in the Model Health Certificate. These can be found in EU Commission Implementing Regulation 2018/659.
