Effective cleaning and disinfection procedures combined with elevated biosecurity practices are critical in controlling the spread and eradicating highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI).  The risk assessments and Egg Movement Control Model Plan are effective only when appropriate cleaning and disinfection procedures are followed.  The model procedures in this document demonstrate how minimum biosecurity requirements can be met.  Individual companies or locations may adapt the procedures to fit their particular needs while still meeting or exceeding the minimum criteria.
