Further to the introduction of an all-Wales Avian Influenza Prevention Zone (AIPZ) on 11 November, we have updated the GB biosecurity guidance for bird keepers. This will assist keepers in meeting the mandatory biosecurity requirements of the Prevention Zone.

In addition, we have produced a biosecurity self-assessment checklist to compliment the guidance and provide a clear list which bird keepers can follow, to help keep their birds free of disease.
