To achieve the objectives of the new Animal Health Strategy the Commission wishes to deepen and strengthen the existing collaborative approach, maintaining effective partnerships at all levels. All those with an interest in animal health have their role to play and responsibilities to fulfil in optimising performance and results.
The Animal Health Advisory Committee is expected to follow the Animal Health Strategy's progress. It is to be consulted on all impact assessments and will advise the Commission on the best means of delivering agreed outcomes. It may also provide strategic guidance on the appropriate level of animal or public health protection, and on priorities for action and communication.
