Spain: there are already 11 autonomous communities and three provinces declared by the EU free of ovine and caprine Brucellosis

There are already 11 Autonomous Communities and three Spanish provinces declared officially by the EU as free from ovine and caprine brucellosis, and 10 Autonomous Communities and four provinces declared free of bovine brucellosis, after publication on 20th October, in the Official Journal of the European Union (DOUE), of Commission Implementing Decision 2017/1910 / EU, declaring the Autonomous Communities of La Rioja and Valencia and the provinces of Albacete, Cuenca and Guadalajara as officially free from ovine and caprine brucellosis. It also includes the declaration of the Autonomous Communities of Castilla La Mancha, Catalonia and Galicia and the province of Zamora, as officially free of bovine brucellosis.

These statements culminate in the great effort made by Spain in the fight against these diseases, in a little more than 25 years of homogeneous application of control and eradication programs, since the beginning of the Livestock Sanitation Campaigns

This is an incentive for both the Public Administrations and the productive sectors, as it means the flexibilization of some measures, in accordance with the community regulations, as well as an improvement in the image of the health status of Spain, thus facilitating maintenance and opening of new commercial possibilities. It also recognizes the continuing progress towards the eradication of these important zoonoses, with the consequent benefit to public health.

The list of regions declared officially free is as follows:
