Abstract
This document provides a framework for discussion between and among Responsible Regulatory Officials (Federal, State, Tribal, territorial) and industry to provide optimal protection from introduction of foot and mouth disease (FMD) virus to a new area during an outbreak while maintaining business continuity for livestock producers and associated industries to the extent possible, and safe and wholesome food to consumers. While this document focuses on interstate and intrastate movement decisions by State Animal Health Officials, the recommendations may also be useful for movement decisions by producers and packers. Concepts proposed include a Limited Movement Period of 28 days following a 72-hour National Movement Standstill, approaches to reducing risks associated with movements, and the use of State Status to guide movement decisions. The recommendations in this document are guidelines only; Responsible Regulatory Officials will make decisions based on available information and resources at the time of the outbreak.
