This site offers educational materials (in English and Spanish) for the poultry industry to support implementation of biosecurity recommendations identified in the Checklist for Self-Assessment of Enhanced Poultry Biosecurity. The materials are arranged by checklist item. The materials can be downloaded, printed and used as is. However, poultry Biosecurity Officers are encouraged to modify the resources to best meet the situation at their operations. Note, if the text appears shadowed / hard to read when previewing the file, download the file and open it locally. That should resolve the issue.

These HPAI Biosecurity Training Materials were produced by the Center for Food Security and Public Health, Iowa State University, College of Veterinary Medicine. The USDA, APHIS, Veterinary Services, Surveillance, Preparedness and Response Services, National Preparedness and Incident Coordination provided funding through a cooperative agreement to the Center for Food Security and Public Health to develop these materials.

We welcome your suggestions for improvement.

Biosecurity Officer

The first checklist recommendation is that “each production site (or integrated system) should have a Biosecurity Officer capable of designing and implementing effective biosecurity procedures”. The Poultry Biosecurity Officer Information Manual provides guidance for a Biosecurity Officer in accomplishing the other checklist items.
