Whether in the fields of terrestrial and aquatic animal disease, prevention and control, animal welfare or diagnostic methods and vaccine quality, the OIE Delegates adopted and revised a number of standards.
Several chapters on various animal diseases were revised, including PRRS and Salmonella.
Two new chapters on the prevention and control of Salmonella in bovine and pig production systems were developed to provide guidance to reduce the burden of disease in these species, and the risk of human illness through foodborne contamination, as well as from direct or indirect contact with infected animals. These chapters, together with those recently adopted by the Codex Alimentarius, ensure an integrated food chain approach to the control of this pathogen.
A new chapter on infection with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus was developed to provide recommendations on managing the risk of international transmission of this disease.
