Preface

Author(s) : B. Vallat

Summary :

An increasingly globalised economy means new challenges for our societies, such as the need to better protect public and animal health and the environment. Constant improvement in communications, ever greater mobility of people, and expanding domestic and international trade in animals and animal products, all point to the decisive importance of Veterinary Services and their key role in providing guarantees and certification that products marketed and/or exported are fit for human consumption and do not constitute a hazard to animal health or the environment. These concepts have become standards in our modern society, in particular thanks to international trade agreements, with the creation of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS), for which the OIE (World organisation for animal health) is the world reference organisation in the field of animal health and zoonoses.
