Import Health Standard for Equids
The document contains generic import requirements for Biosecurity import requirements for live equids. These are the rules to manage the biosecurity risk of importing equids from all countries that can meet the requirements of the IHS and in doing so meet New Zealand's appropriate level of protection. The generic IHS serves as the basis for country-to-country (bilateral) negotiations. This guidance document (GD) contains a model veterinary certificate and the bilaterally-agreed veterinary certification for trade in equids. Each country-specific veterinary certificate represents what will be certified prior to exporting consignments of equids from the country specified.
