Animal Pathogens

Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCN): 1C352 & 1C360


  • African horse sickness virus
  • African swine fever virus
  • Akabane virus
  • Avian influenza (AI) viruses identified as having high pathogenicity (HP) as follows:Bluetongue virus
    • AI viruses that have an intravenous pathogenicity index (IVPI) in 6-week old chickens greater than 1.2; or
    • AI viruses that cause at least 75% mortality in 4- to 8-week old chickens infected intravenously
    • Note: Avian influenza (AI) viruses of the H5 or H7 subtype that do not have either of the characteristics described above should be sequenced to determine whether multiple basic amino acids are present at the cleavage site of the haemagglutinin molecule (HA0).  If the amino acid motif is similar to that observed for other APAI isolates, then the isolate being tested should be considered as HPAI and the virus is controlled

Note: Mycoplasm is a type of bacteria

  • Mycoplasma, as follows
