EU comments on OIE Aquatic Animal Health Code

posted Feb 2, 2013, 7:03 AM by John Bostock
The European Commission DG SANCO commented on the report of the September 2012 meeting of the OIE Aquatic Animal Health Standards Commission on the Aquatic Animal Health Code. A programme of work to further strengthen the Code and the associated Aquatic Manual have been proposed, which seeks to list and classify new diseases, strengthen and harmonise risk analysis procedures, and improve guidance on control measures for aquatic animal diseases. The EU supports many of the proposals, but disagrees with proposed changes to the criteria for listing of aquatic diseases. It also suggested some changes to the glossary and terminology. See attached file for full details.
