The new Animal Health Strategy - A Modern Legal Framework

A Modern Legal Framework

The new Animal Health strategy aims to establish a clearer regulatory structure for animal health in the EU. The existing legislation on animal health covers many different policy areas: intra-community trade, imports, animal disease control, animal nutrition and animal welfare. This series of interrelated policy actions will be replaced by a single regulatory framework. The framework will converge, as far as possible, with the international recommendations, standards and guidelines of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and Codex Alimentarius. Furthermore, a harmonised EU framework for responsibility- and cost-sharing will be developed.
