IV9 Compartmentali sation
The authority and capability of the VS to establish and maintain disease free compartments as necessary and in accordance with the criteria established by the OIE (and by the WTO SPS Agreement where applicable).
The VS cannot establish disease free compartments.
As necessary, the VS can identify animal sub‐populations
with a distinct health status suitable for compartmentalisation.
The VS have implemented biosecurity measures that enable
it to establish and maintain disease free compartments for selected animals and animal products, as necessary. 4. The VS collaborate with their stakeholders to define responsibilities and execute actions that enable it to establish and maintain disease free compartments for selected animals and animal products, as necessary. 5. The VS can demonstrate the scientific basis for any disease free compartments and can gain recognition by other countries that they meet the criteria established by the OIE (and by the WTO
SPS Agreement where applicable).
Results Strengths : VS have taken a broad interpretation of the compartmentalisation concept when establishing and enforcing biosecurity measures in the quarantine farms Game farmers, having wildebeest, and neighbouring cattle farms are required by VS to build double game fences to prevent the transmission of Malignant Catarrhal Fever Pig farmers have implemented biosecurity measures (creating compartments) to protect their pigs from ticks and African Swine Fever Weaknesses :

Priorities/Recommendations Short Term :
Medium / Long Term : Continue to consider compartmentalisation as a complement to zoning, particularly for cases like protecting swine from ASF.
