Scottish Regional Resilience Partnerships' Framework for Exotic Notifiable Animal Diseases Contingency Plans

Information on how and when operational partners should respond to a suspect or confirmed exotic notifiable animal disease outbreak

Executive Summary

This plan follows agreement between all three Regional Resilience Partnerships’ (RRP) Animal Health Sub Groups to develop a single Scottish multi-agency operational animal disease framework plan. It details a consistent command and control structure for responding to suspect and confirmed outbreaks of exotic notifiable animal diseases and provides a framework to facilitate joint training.

This plan provides a framework for each organisation to develop its own detailed operational response plan (and in some cases a generic operational plan that can be adapted by local authorities both for consistency/mutual aid, where officers can assist other authorities, and training/exercising). It contains specific information on how and when operational partners should respond to a suspect or confirmed exotic notifiable animal disease outbreak.
