National List of Reportable Animal Diseases and Emerging Diseases Framework

National List of Reportable Animal Diseases and Emerging Diseases Framework

The National List of Reportable Animal Diseases (NLRAD) was created through a deliberative process led by the United States Animal Health Association/American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians’ Committee on Animal Health Surveillance and Information Systems and the National Animal Health Reporting System Steering Committee. The paper proposes a single, standardized list of reportable animal diseases, and outlines who will be responsible for reporting, and describes how diseases are to be reported. Based on the comments we receive on the proposed NLRAD, we will likely begin rulemaking to publish a proposed rule establishing a new part in title 9, Code of Federal Regulations for the NLRAD and associated reporting requirements. 

We are seeking stakeholder feedback on the draft plan for responding to emerging animal diseases.Please send your comments by November 1, 2016,  VS.SPRS.Feedback@aphis.usda.gov
