SINGAPORE - Singapore will lift the ban on poultry and eggs imports from Malaysian states of Selangor and Negri Sembilan from April 14, the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) of Singapore announced on Wednesday. "AVA has inspected Negri Sembilan and Selangor and has assessed that all the necessary measures have been put in place to establish and maintain these two states as bird flu free zones," an AVA statement said. In addition to the measures taken by Malaysia's Department of Veterinary Services (DVS) such as disinfection, disease surveillance and export inspection, AVA will inspect all import consignments again upon entry at the Singapore side.
