UK - The leading pig organisations in the country have prepared a Code of Practice for all forms of influenza, including influenza A H1N1.

This document has been produced in response to the current outbreak of influenza in humans caused by pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus. This virus will be referred to as H1N1/09v throughout the document.

The aim is to provide guidance on how to minimise the risk of introducing this virus to your pig herd and how to minimise its spread should it enter your herd.

The advice and guidance is applicable to all strains of influenza virus in pigs including H1N1/09v.

The principles of biosecurity and disease control set out in this document will also aid prevention and control of other infectious pig diseases.

This document has been produced by Industry in partnership with Defra, Scottish Government and Welsh Assembly Government.
