Preface

Author(s) : B. Vallat

Summary :

One of the principal objectives of the Office International des Epizooties (OIE) is to agree international codes and standards that will provide better guarantees and facilitate trade in animals and animal products. Traceability is a key element in regard to such guarantees and yet, until recently, international interest in this subject has been relatively limited in regard to animals and animal products for international trade. Individual methodologies have evolved both at sector and national levels for the identification and registration of animals, the recording of animal movements, and the subsequent correlation with products of animal origin. To date, little attention has been given to the introduction of standardised systems that will be widely accepted and thereby facilitate a level of harmonisation between trading countries.
