Regarding virulent domestic animal infectious diseases, out of monitored infectious diseases, which are serious and highly contagious (rinderpest, foot-and-mouth disease, classical swine fever, African Swine Fever, and highly-pathogenic avian influenza, at present), the Act on Domestic Animal Infectious Diseases Control classifies regions for each type of animal according to the level of infection spread and the implementation of epidemic prevention measures and specifies those for which import is prohibited (Article 43 of the Regulation for Enforcement of Act on Domestic Animal Infectious Diseases Control).

It should be noted that there may be cases in which import is temporarily suspended for some animals and livestock products whose import is permitted under Article 43 of the Regulation for Enforcement, depending on the circumstances of occurrence of other diseases.
