CONDITIONS OF IMPORT:

The animal(s) being presented for importation must have been either
resident in the U.S.A. for at least sixty (60) days immediately prior
to the date of exportation, or resident since birth or hatching.

The swine must be inspected prior to export; must have resided in the

and has resided in the USA for the past sixty (60) days; and must be

preceding the date of importation;
2) the animals were found by a veterinarian to be free from any
communicable disease;
3) the animals were, to the best of the knowledge and belief of a
veterinarian, not exposed to any communicable
disease within sixty (60) days preceding the date of inspection;
4) the animal is free from:
a. pseudorabies, as determined by a serum neutralization test or
indirect ELISA against whole virus antigen;
and,
b. brucellosis, as determined by one of the following tests:
fluorescent polarization assay (FPA) test, the indirect ELISA (iELISA),
a serum agglutination test (e.g. Standard Card test) or complement
fixation (negative at less than 20 ICFT units per ml) or, where

thirty (30) days preceding the date of shipment from the place where the animal was kept;
and,
5) the herd in which the animal was kept during the twelve (12) months
preceding the date of shipment has been
free from pseudorabies and brucellosis during such period so far as
can be determined by blood test or from
herd history.

The animal(s) being presented for importation shall not come into
contact with any animals, products, or equipment of lesser health status
during the period between required testing and export to Canada. In
addition, no new animals shall be added to the group intended for
export, unless these animals have sanitary guarantees similar to those
of the rest of the group.

The animals must be shipped in vehicles that have been cleaned and
disinfected.

During post-entry quarantine in Canada, the animals were tested for
pseudorabies and brucellosis with negative results.

The animal(s) must be imported into Canada through a medium level
quarantine facility approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for
that purpose (a minimum level quarantine may be considered in an urban
setting where the importation is of a personal nature and permitted by
local zoning laws). The import quarantine facility must have been
previously approved for use as a medium security quarantine facility by
a veterinary inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act. The
facility evaluation shall include: location, fencing, physical
structure, lighting, water supply, waste disposal, vector and pest
control, movement of people, staff, security, cleaning and disinfection
protocols. A report that the facility has been approved must have been
issued by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). The animal(s) to
be exported to Canada must be transported directly from the point of
export to the quarantine facility. The vessel, aircraft or vehicle must
not stop en route without written authorization from the CFIA appended
to the permit or the license. No other animals of a lesser health status
are permitted on the same conveyance. Manure, feed and bedding that is
off-loaded from the conveyance in which the animals were transported
must be disposed of in a manner approved by an inspector designated
under the Health of Animals Act. The animals will be inspected on
arrival at the port of entry by a veterinary inspector designated under
the Health of Animals Act. If found healthy, the animals must be
transported directly to the quarantine facility without coming into
contact with animals of a lesser health status. The transportation of
the animals from the port of arrival to the quarantine facility must be
in vehicles which have been cleaned and disinfected in a manner
satisfactory to an inspector designated under the Health of Animals
Act.


Prior to entry of the animals, the approved quarantine premises must be
thoroughly cleaned and disinfected in a manner satisfactory to an
inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act. No animals of a
lesser health status may enter into the approved quarantine premises
following the completion of the cleaning and disinfection. Upon arrival
at the quarantine facility any litter, surplus feed and the shipping
crates, containers or conveyance used to transport the animals must be
cleaned and disinfected or disposed of, in a manner satisfactory to an
inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act. Facility personnel
at the quarantine must not have contact with other livestock during the
quarantine period. During the quarantine the importer must immediately
report any sickness or deaths affecting the imported animals to the
nearest inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act, in order
that an examination may be conducted and that specimens may be collected
and forwarded to a laboratory approved by the CFIA. All garbage
generated in the quarantine facility must be stored there until
periodically licensed out of the area for disposal in a manner
satisfactory to an inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act.
No animal must be moved from their respective quarantine premises until
duly discharged by an inspector designated under the Health of Animals
Act. On completion of quarantine with negative results on all tests, the
animals will be released to the importer and / or owner.




The animal(s) being presented for importation must be quarantined for a
minimum of thirty (30) days or a longer period of time as necessary to
complete the tests required to meet the import conditions. The animals
must be quarantined at the premises previously approved for such purpose
by a veterinary inspector designated under the Health of Animals Act.
