Give us your feedback on the ASF posters!

31st Jul 2019 / By Alistair Driver

We are delighted to see that Defra has finally listended to our calls for a proper awareness campaign at ports and airports about the risks of bringing diseases like African swine fever into the country.

As Richard Longthorp wrote on the forum this morning, these calls are not new, dating back 20 years. 

We are looking forward to seeing the campaign in action - alongside more rigorous enforcement at checks at points of entry. 

We want your help in gauging the success of the awareness campaign. If you are entering the UK over the next few weeks, having been away on business or pleasure, let us know what you see when you arrive. Are the posters obvious for all to see? Is the message clear?
