Abstract The application for a poultry compartment by VPI and the prospect of further ones motivates the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority to raise the following three questions: 1) What are the additional transmission risks that the (specific) VPI compartment poses during an HPAI epidemic, compared to a situation without compartment?; 2) What are the additional transmission risks that a compartment in general poses during an HPAI epidemic, depending on its characteristics?; 3) What are relevant evaluation criteria for granting the compartment status? In this study we addressed these questions by quantitatively assessing the veterinary risks based on mathematical model calculations, and by qualitatively discussing the (socio) economic aspects.
