Perkhidmatan Kuarantin Veterinar

1. INTRODUCTION

Animal Quarantine Services of the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS) Malaysia provide services for quarantine of live animals and birds for the purposes of import and export. The function and activity is governed by the following rules and regulations under which the DVS is empowered to impose the quarantine of animals and birds :

  • Animal Ordinance, 1953
  • Animal Rules, 1962
  • Animal importation Order, 1962
  • Federal Animals Quarantine Station (Management and Maintenance) By-Law 1984

The rules and regulations are enforced by the requirement for import & export licences and health certificates to regulate and facilitate the importation or exportation of live animals and birds into or from Malaysia.

2. PURPOSE OF QUARANTINE

  Quarantine plays a pivotal role in the control and prevention of entry and spread of exotic and zoonotic animal diseases into the country.At present, Malaysia is free from major exotic diseases such as foot & mouth disease (except for the States at Malaysia - Thai border), rinderpest, anthrax, contagious bovine and caprine pleuropneumonia, bovine spongiform encephalopathy, rabies, African swine fever, African horse sickness and equine encephalitis and this free status is largely due to the stringent quarantine policies of the country.

 

    Although all animals imported into this country have been certified as healthy and free from infectious and contagious diseases by the veterinary authority in the exporting country, at the time of export, quarantine measures are still necessary. This is to ensure that any animal or bird incubating a disease, is examined further during the period of quarantine.

4. QUARANTINE REQUIREMENTS

Quarantine requirements and period of confinement in the quarantine stations differ according to the species of animals/birds, purpose of import and from one country to another. Basically, the Animal Ordinance 1953 differentiated the exporting countries into two categories:

 
  • Schedule Countries including Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Eire,Northen Ireland, Singapore, Brunei, Japan and Sweden.
  • Non-Scheduled Countries are those countries other than the above.
 

   Animals from scheduled countries where disease control programmes are very strict and were free from major animal diseases, do not require quarantine. However, again the requirement for quarantine will be dependent on species of animals and purpose of import.
