Risk analysis is a tool intended to provide decision makers with an objective, repeatable and documented assessment of the risks posed by a particular course of action. The principal aim of import risk analysis is to provide importing countries with an objective and defensible method of assessing the disease risks associated with the importation of animals and their products.

This Handbook provides valuable practical guidance to Veterinary Services needing to analyse the risks posed by imports, to ensure that stakeholders, risk analysts and decision makers can be confident that the disease risks posed have been identified and can be managed effectively. It will also be useful as a training aid to address the critical need for capacity building in this discipline.

Volume I Handbook introduces the concepts of import risk analysis and discusses qualitative risk analysis.Volume II addresses quantitative risk analysis.
