Access the biosecurity progress report

This is a joint Defra-Welsh Government publication presented on behalf of the Government and industry partnership group (AHDB, Defra, Welsh Government, Landex, NFU, and BCVA). It evaluates the progress of the 2014 Biosecurity Action Plan and presents a new action plan targeting improving biosecurity.

The report contains 20 new actions based on stakeholder feedback on the 2014 Biosecurity Action Plan from a workshop conducted in 2017. These actions cover guidance and information resources; education and training; communications; policy; evidence; and data collection.

Better biosecurity has an important role to play in the eradication of TB as indicated in the Bovine TB Strategy Review.
