7 Recognition of the BSE Status During the 72nd General session, the OIE International committee asked the Director General to establish a list of countries or zones recognized by the OIE as BSE " free and "provisionally free" in accordance with OIE Code. This list should be updated as and when new countries are approved by the International committee.
8 BSE status (2004) (country or zone) ① Free from BSE ② Provisionally free from BSE Argentina, Iceland, Singapore and Uruguay ③ With a minimal BSE risk ④ With a moderate BSE risk ⑤ With a high BSE risk
9 BSE status (Present) (country or zone) ① Free from BSE Australia, Argentina, New Zealand and Uruguay ② Provisionally free from BSE Chile, Iceland, Paraguay and Singapore ③ With a minimal BSE risk ④ With a moderate BSE risk ⑤ With a high BSE risk
10 BSE status (future) (country or zone or Compartment) ① Negligible BSE risk ② Controlled BSE risk ③ Undetermined BSE risk
11 Recognition of the BSE Status Any member country wishing to submit an application before the end of 2006 for negkligible risk or controled risk status for BSE, will be assessed against the OIE Code. After December 2006, all apprications for BSE status will be assessed against the OIE Code current at the time.
12 Questionnaire for BSE Status Recognition Section 1 – Risk assessment Section 2 – Other requirements Ongoing awarness programme Compulsory notification and Investigation Diagnostic capability Section 3 – Surveillance Section 4 – BSE history of the country, zone or compartment
13 Section – 1 Risk Assessment Release assessment The potential for the release of the BSE agent through importation of 1. meat-and-bone meal (MBM) or graves 2. potentially infected live cattle 3. potentially infected products of bovine origin
14 Section – 1 Risk Assessment Exposure assessment 1. The origin of bovine carcasses, by-products and slaughterhouse waste, the paramaters of the rendering processes and the methods of cattle feed production 2. The potential for the exposure of cattle to the BSE agent through consumption of MBM or greaves of bovine origin

21 Section–3 Surveillance & Monitoring systems Code prescribe the number of cattle, by subpopulation, that need to be tested in order to ensure the detection of BSE at or above a minimal threshold prevalence.
22 Section – 4 BSE History Has BSE occured in the country, zone or compartment? How has it been dealt with?
23 Recognition of BSE Status The categolization of a country, zone or compartment in either negligible risk or controlled risk is dependent upon, the outcome of the risk assessment descrived in section 1, compliance with the provisions descrived in section 2, the results of surveillance described in section 3, and the history of BSE in the country, zone or compartment.
