  List of notifiable diseases - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Diseases which must, by law, be reported to governmental authorities by medical practitioners are called notifiable diseases or reportable diseases.
Notifiable diseases in the United States used to vary according to individual state's laws.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) also produced a list of nationally notifiable diseases which health officials should report to the CDC's National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS).

The publication of the notifiable diseases list was delayed in order to attempt to reach a consensus on the request of the poultry industry to include certain diseases, which occur in Canada, on the list of notifiable diseases which laboratories must notify CFIA immediately on diagnosis.
The failure to enact the notifiable diseases list meant that Canada did not meet the requirement of the European Union (EU) that requires four diseases of horses be ‘notifiable’ under Canadian law.
The four horse diseases were placed back on the reportable diseases list in order to rectify a certification requirement with the expectation that once the notifiable diseases list was introduced, that the reportable list would be amended to remove the four horse diseases.

An immediately notifiable list will be created which primarily names diseases foreign to Canada and for which the CFIA may or may not mount a significant eradication effort once it becomes aware of their presence.
With respect to the inclusion of diseases on the "immediately notifiable list", the cost of diagnosis is the same with or without the proposed amendments to the Regulations and, although it may be significant, the total cost is less if a disease is diagnosed early.
The publication of the notifiable diseases list was delayed in order to attempt to reach a consensus at the request of the poultry industry, to include certain diseases that occur in Canada on the list of notifiable diseases that laboratories must notify the CFIA of immediately upon diagnosis.

 BBC - h2g2 - Notifiable Infectious Diseases in the UK
Notifiable Diseases are those whose occurrence is required by the law of the country to be reported to the appropriate authority — usually the medical officer of health.
For some notifiable diseases, there is no real risk of an epidemic, but the very occurrence of one case of the disorder can be an indication of some breakdown in hygiene.
Diseases which are notifiable (to Local Authority Proper Officers) under the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984 or the Public Health (Infectious Diseases) Regulations 1988 (UK) may be taken as typical of the situation in other countries.

Each notifiable disease provides a brief discussion on the limitations of the data unique to the notifiable disease.
Some diseases, such as polio, diptheria and tetanus, have few reported cases because of the success of mass childhood immunization programs; others, such as congenital syphilis, are rarely reported because of the implementation of public health control measures such as routine screening of all pregnant women for syphilis.

It was expected that those diseases and the remaining diseases required for export of animals would be included in a separate "notifiable diseases list" which would be contained in the Health of Animals Regulations.
This notifiable diseases list will include the diseases for which no program exists and for which information is being gathered, primarily to meet Canada's international obligation for surveillance of disease in livestock and other animals.
The publication of the notifiable diseases list has been delayed in order to attempt to reach a consensus on the request of the poultry and turkey industries to include certain diseases, which occur in Canada, on the list of notifiable diseases which laboratories must notify CFIA immediately on diagnosis.

Early recognition of a serious or exotic animal disease is one of the most important factors influencing the chance of controlling the disease and reducing its economic and social impact on the whole community.
Notifiable diseases are defined under the Livestock Disease Control Act (1994), and the obligations of livestock owners, vets, laboratories and others are outlined in the Act and its associated regulations and orders.

Many case definitions for the childhood vaccine-preventable diseases and foodborne diseases include epidemiologic criteria (e.g., exposure to probable or confirmed cases of disease or to a point source of infection [i.e., a single source of infection, such as an event resulting in a foodborne-disease outbreak, to which all confirmed case-patients were exposed]).
The case definitions contained in the "1997 Report" establish uniform criteria for disease reporting and should not be used as the sole criteria for establishing clinical diagnoses, determining the standard of care necessary for a particular patient, setting guidelines for quality assurance, or providing standards for reimbursement.
Diseases may be added to the list as new pathogens emerge or deleted as their incidence declines.

 Chapter 8: Legislation
Diseases subject to other forms of regulatory control should not be designated as "notifiable diseases", but referred to as "reportable diseases" or "officially controlled diseases".
• other diseases officially controlled in the same manner as may be provided for by relevant national rules and regulations, subject to the requirement that the government concerned undertakes to apply and enforce such control measures effectively and consistently.
To that end, relevant laws and regulations should provide that a notifiable disease is a priori suspected in every case of serious illness or death in an animal, or alteration in a carcass, unless the symptoms can reasonably be attributed to another disease that is not notifiable.

Generally, continued failure to report cases of notifiable diseases can result in punitive measures against the responsible party (eg, fines.) Although the majority of States have also instituted requirements for laboratory reporting of certain diseases, clinicians are still obligated to report cases.
Not all notifiable diseases are confirmed solely through laboratory testing, and clinician reports often contain important demographic data crucial to investigatory and control procedures that are not available in laboratory reports.
All clinicians should be aware that the list of notifiable diseases, case definitions for each disease, particular requirements and protocols for reporting, and the penalties for failing to do so vary from state to state.

Most diseases are to be reported to the local county (Landkreis) health department from where they are reported by the state (Land) to the national surveillance institute (Robert Koch Institute).
One major goal of the new infectious disease control law was to drastically reduce the number of diseases reportable by the physician to increase notification compliance (12).
Clinical diagnoses of diseases perceived by physicians to be of little importance may be less likely to require microbiologic testing to avoid the administrative task of notification (13).
