Government of Canada National Farm-Level Biosecurity Standard

A national Equine Biosecurity Advisory Committee has been established to develop this voluntary standard which will provide a common approach to preventing and controlling disease in facilities where horses are housed and kept.

The equine biosecurity standard will:

provide guidelines for effective biosecurity practices;

promote a consistent approach to reducing the risks of established, emerging and foreign animal diseases;

enhance equine health, welfare and productivity;

minimize the frequency, scope and impact of disease outbreaks;

increase industry's knowledge of the risks associated with diseases; and

identify potential gaps in current control measures.
