France Galop has amended its Rules of Racing to make vaccination against Equine Herpes Virus mandatory for all Thoroughbreds in training and racing in France. 

The BHA will not be advocating mandatory vaccination against Equine Herpes Virus for racehorses in Great Britain, however, all British racehorses that are intended to run in France must be vaccinated in accordance with the France Galop Rules of Racing.  

This Rule has not yet been published in the France Galop Rules of Racing. The requirements of the Rule will be made effective 3 months after publication.
