The Danish Transport Standard

The DANISH Transport Standard summarizes the requirements for cleaning and disinfection of vehicles arriving from abroad; this in the effort to prevent diseases such as African Swine Fever (ASF) and Foot and mouth disease from entering Denmark.

The DANISH Transport Standard covers following:

  • Hauliers of live cloven-hoofed animals
  • Collection centres
  • Exporters / DanBred vendors
  • Cleaning and disinfection stations

To register the Declaration of Accession must be filled in and forwarded to the Certification body stated below and email to Baltic Control Certification, cert@balticcontrol.com. Telephone number +45 39 39 01 35.

The Certification body conducts an independent approval of the registered parties. Approved parties are registered on pigresearchcentre.dk/Standards/The-Danish-Transport-Standard

A DANISH-certificate is issued to approved parties. Furthermore, the Certification body will conduct inspections and monitor compliance with the requirements of the Standard on behalf of SEGES Pig Research Centre, Danish Agriculture & Food Council.

At all times the responsibility lies with the individual haulier to comply with the requirements in the Standard and to remain updated on any new requirements in the Standard.

All parties involved are independently liable, and in cases where several parties are involved, each party is individually liable. The latest standards and information can be found here.

Any queries as for the understanding of the Standard’s regulations, and any dispute shall be settled according to Danish law and at the Danish Agriculture & Food Council’s DBMC Arbitration.

ASF moves closer to the German border

9 new outbreaks of ASF has been found in Poland – just around 40 km from the border to Germany. The outbreaks were found around the cities Nowgrod Bobrzanski and Zielona Góra.

The red zones in Germany, which were introduced on November 16th 2019, are still effective.

There are no changes in the risk map of DANISH Transport Standard.

Please see map below under 'Risk zones - an overview'.

 


 

16. November 2019 

Expanded black zones in Poland

The provinces Zachodnio-pomorskie, Lubiskie og Dolnoslaskie in the western Poland are with immediate effect BLACK ZONES.
ASF has jumped 300 km west and is now approx. 80 km from the German border. ASF has been found in a traffic-killed wild boar in the middle of Lubiskie province. The Polish authorities allegedly consider it as an isolated case with no direct connection to the outbreaks in eastern Poland. It is expected that human activity has caused the outbreak in Lubiskie.

Red zones in Germany

Because of the black zones in Poland, following zones in Germany are now RED ZONES:

  • ZIP-code 02 in Sachsen
  • ZIP-code 03 in Brandenburg
  • ZIP-code 15 in Brandenburg
  • ZIP-code 16 in  Brandenburg
  • ZIP-code 17 in Vorpommern

Please see map below under 'Risk zones - an overview'.

New green zones

  • Switzerland
  • Norway, Troms og Finnmark, stay red zones

To avoid outbreaks of African Swine Fever in Denmark, an increased state of alert has been introduced for vehicles arriving from abroad.

  

Europe is divided into three different zones: Green zone = risk areas, Red zone = high risk areas, Black zone = areas under increased state of alert.

DANISH-approved hauliers and vehicles are not allowed to drive direct to Danish herds, if they have driven in black zones within the past seven days.

The first 7 days after having finished cleaning and disinfection at one of the DANISH-approved cleaning and disinfection stations, they can drive to DANISH-approved collection centres only.

For DANISH-approved hauliers and their vehicles, that have NOT driven inside black zones within the past 7 days the ordinary state of alert in the DANISH Transport Standard applies (see: quarantines for vehicles).

When moving animals between Danish herds, a minimum of 48 hours of quarantine even at green and yellow certificates must be respected.
During a period of increased alert there are three different standard quarantines related to direct exports from DANISH approved herds (collection centres excluded):
7 days → (black wash certificate)
48 hours → (red wash certificate)
12 hours → (yellow wash certificate)

Dynamic quarantines

If a new quarantine is obtained within an already imposed quarantine, the total quarantine will change and adapt to the new quarantine, in case the new one is longer than the previous.

 

Check the vehicle from mobile phone or tablet

You can check the cleaning and disinfection status of your vehicle from any given smartphone, tablet or computer.

Cleaning and disinfection times by text message

In order to check the status of your vehicles transporting live animals, you can choose to receive a text message notifying you about the last time a vehicle has been cleaned and disinfected.

Simply send a text message to + 45 5129 1070 including the vehicle number, or number of the trailer and shortly after you will receive a reply informing you about the recent time of cleaning and disinfection of the vehicle. It makes no difference, whether you use space, or lower- and upper-case letters in the text message.

Example:
Send text message with the vehicle’s number: BEAK31 to +45 5129 1070
Answer: Latest wash for 'BEAK31':  01/06-2019, 07:22

A safety wash is defined by the DANISH Transport Standard as a combination of a soap wash plus subsequent cleaning and disinfection on a DANISH-approved soap, cleaning and disinfecting station.

A “safety wash” is limited to vehicles that have driven in high risk areas (red areas) and have been issued a red cleaning certificate. This as a starting point, safety cleaning may be performed whereby the quarantine is reduced from 48 to 12 hours for direct transports abroad. However, a minimum of 48-hours-quarantine applies for transports between Danish herds, or from Danish herds to collection centres or slaughterhouses.

An additional cleaning with soap and disinfection on critical parts of vehicle provides adequate safety that SPF-approved vehicles may have a shortened quarantine.

Due to the increased spreading of African Swine Fever (ASF) in for instance Poland and the Baltic countries, an increased state of alert (black area) was introduced to the DANISH Transport Standard on October 1, 2016.

This increased state of alert means, that vehicles which, within the last seven days, have driven in areas included in the increased state of alert, must comply with a seven-day-quarantine, if loading takes place directly from a herd. By an exterior soap wash, a wash certificate can be changed from black into red. 

Please observe that the individual cleaning and disinfecting stations will charge a fixed price for external soap cleanings.
