In order to identify the status of WTO SPS notification concerning animal health in China，analyze its characteristics and development trend，the general situation of technical trade measures concerning global animal health in the first half of 2020 was summarized and analyzed. In the first half of 2020，the number of SPS notifications concerning animal health submitted had been increased significantly through the world by 42% compared with the same period in 2019，especially the notifications on trade ban had been tripled；the notifications had been submitted by more countries，including the United States，Japan，New Zealand，European Union and other developed countries，as well as Russia，Thailand，Colombia and other developing countries；the notifications mainly involved COVID-19，followed by African swine fever（ASF），highly pathogenic avian influenza（HPAI），Equine Piriformis（EP），Foot-and-mouth disease（FMD）and other animal health events as well as relevant standards. It was analyzed that the technical trade measures had been concerned by more and more countries，including developing countries，and the main reason for such notification was major health events. In China，follow-up study on national standards and regulations concerning animal product trade as well as the control of major health events should be strengthened，SPS notification and evaluation should be actively taken part in，so as to eliminate all impacts brought by WTO notification on international trade of animals and animal products. Some references were hereby provided to strengthen response to WTO animal health technical trade measures and early warning in China.
