Sverdlovsk Region division of Rospotrebnadzor (the state consumer rights watchdog) has been doing raids of poultry farms in order to avoid possible problems occasioned by the beginning of the spring migration of birds. 19 out of 22 regional farms have been inspected for bird flu and compliance with the safety and prevention rules over the last two months. The farms have to be of a closed type, possess sanitary inspection rooms and be equipped with insulated disinfection barrier zones as well as have enough disinfectants and personal protection equipment in stock.

This activity has been supported by Sverdlovsk Region Government’s order 243 as of March 27, 2007; the order provides for an all-round action plan for preventing the outbreak or spread of bird flu in Sverdlovsk Region this year.
