    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This International Standard provides guidance on environment-friendly burial methods of animal carcasses to prevent epidemics, to curtail the spread of the disease, to destroy the causative agents, and to dispose of the carcasses.

    This International Standard does not apply to the burial of animal carcasses resulting from natural death or by accident.

    Other methods of disposal are outside the scope of this International Standard.

    NOTE In some countries, infected animals or parts of animals cannot be buried on farms due to legislation but are subject to handling by licensed commercial landfills or incinerations.
