The NAMP regularly updates the Bluetongue Zone Map. This zone map is based on OIE guidelines and defines areas in which no viral activity has been detected for at least the past two years. As the map is updated in response to new monitoring information, it is subject to change without notice. Users are advised to refer to this web site whenever making decisions or recommendations related to bluetongue zoning.
Zone boundaries are subject to change without notice.
The only current map version is the one on this site. Please read this notice carefully to ensure that you understand about zone boundary updates.
This map is based on bluetongue virus monitoring data which is collected regularly. The map may be changed at any time without prior notice.
This map reflects the currently available information on the distribution of bluetongue virus in Australia. State or Territory authorities should be consulted before taking any action on the basis of these zone boundaries.
Any property that has any part within the surveillance zone or zone of possible transmission is deemed to be entirely within the zone of higher risk (the zone of possible transmission is higher risk than the surveillance zone).
Individual importing countries may have different requirements regarding bluetongue virus zones. Nothing contained in this map will override these requirements.
Users may request that Animal Health Australia notifies them after changes have been made to the map (using the facility on the next page). Animal Health Australia will try to notify registered users on the same day that the map is changed. However, there may be reasons why Animal Health Australia is not able to do so, and users should regularly check the map to see whether it has been changed.
