The Danish Transport Standard

The DANISH Transport Standard summarizes the requirements for cleaning and disinfection of vehicles coming from abroad with the intention to prevent diseases such as swine fever and foot and mouth disease to enter Denmark.

The DANISH Transport Standard covers the following:

  • Hauliers of live hoofed animals
  • Collection centres
  • Exporters / DanBred vendors
  • Cleaning and disinfection station

Registration by filling in the declaration of accession and forward it to the certification body stated below and mail to Baltic Control Certification, cert@balticcontrol.com. Telephone number +45 39 39 01 35.

It is the business of the certification body to conduct an independent approval of the registered parties to the standard. Approved parties are registered on dts.svineproduktion.dk.

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

At any time it is the responsibility of the individual haulier to comply with the requirements in the standard and to remain updated about 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.


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 3 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 been 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 been inside black zones within the past 7 days the ordinary state of alert in the DANISH Transport Standard applies.


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 Washing certificate)
  • 48 hours → (red Washing certificate)
  • 12 hours → (yellow Washing 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 or tablet

You can check the wash- and disinfection status of the vehicle of your pig transporter from any given smartphone or tablet computer.

Download the app from App Store or Google Play Store by typing "tjekvogn".

Washing and disinfection times by sms

In order to keep control of the vehicles transporting live animals, you can receive a text message notifying you of the last time the transporter's vehicle has been washed 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 of the most recent time the vehicle has been washed and disinfected. It makes no difference whether you use gaps, or major and minor case letters in the text message.

Example: Send text message with the vehicle’s number: BEAK31 to +45 5129 1070

A safety wash is defined by the DANISH Transportstandard as a combination of a thorough cleaning with soap performed on a DANISH-approved soap wash station and a DANISH-certified cleaning and disinfecting station.

A “safetywash” is limited to vehicles that have driven in high risk areas and that were 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 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 supplies sufficient 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 in-creased state of alert (black area) was introduced on October 1, 2016 to the DANISH Transportstandard.

This increased state of alert means, that vehicles which, within the last seven days, have been to areas included in the increased state of alert, must comply with a seven-day quarantine, if loading takes place directly from a herd. A professional evaluation of the risk of transmitting infection from SPF-approved vehicles, that have had a specific external soap cleaning has now resulted in that these types of vehicles may have shortened the seven days’ quarantine to two days.

The scheme became effective as of January 17, 2017.   

Please observe that the individual cleaning and disinfecting stations set the price for external soap cleaning.
