Trichinella

Denmark has obtained the approval of the Commissions and the other Member States of Denmark’s status as a region with negligible risk of trichinella in farmed pigs

Denmark’s status as a region with negligible risk of trichinella on farmed pigs enables Denmark to restrict testing for trichinella to a risk based surveillance. Today almost all slaughtered pigs are tested for trichinella but in the future testing will be limited to sows and boars, wild boars, horses and some other species.

As part of the application for approval, an ‘Initial Report’ and the Danish contingency plan were sent to the Commission and the other Member States together with some other material.

Below are the links to these papers.
