In a statement, the Authority said all consignments are subject to the conditions and controls issued by the Animal Health Department of the Authority following the procedures of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE).

The agricultural authority added that consignments affected by any of the epidemic and infectious diseases will be rejected, after testing samples at the authority’s laboratory.

If the shipment is found to be infected, the importer would be tasked with returning the affected birds and animals to the destination from which they arrived at their own expense.
