OIE: new chapter regarding the welfare of pigs

A new chapter regarding the welfare of animals in production systems was adopted for pigs.

Tuesday 29 May 2018 (27 days ago)

Several chapters on various animal diseases were added or revised, as were some of the generic chapters, including those relating to animal welfare.

The chapter pertaining to zoning and compartmentalisation was comprehensively reviewed and updated to assist Member Countries in applying these concepts – free zone, infected zone, protection zone and containment zone – to better control animal disease and facilitate safe trade.

A new chapter on vaccination was developed to provide guidance to Member Countries to successfully implement vaccination programmes in support of animal disease control programmes and strategies. Chapters relating to the veterinary vaccine production have also been amended.

The chapter on glanders underwent a major revision to assist Member Countries to more effectively implement measures for the eradication and control of the disease.

A new chapter regarding the welfare of animals in production systems was adopted for pigs and completes those already existing for beef and dairy cattle, as well as broiler chicken.
