important for preventing and fighting animal diseases.
This thought was clearly expressed at an EU conference on animal diseases,
held this week. Both member states and organisations involved discussed about a
new strategy for the years to come until 2013.
Ultimate goal of the conference is to create a coherent European policy on
So far the Community Animal Health Policy (CAHP) has enabled the EU to
implement animal health inspections are carried out at point of origin and not
at internal borders.
It has also contributed to the eradication of diseases which represent
obstacles to free movement of animals and their products, and allows the single
market to function normally.
As more challenges are ahead, the EU would like to focus on themes as
prevention, finance, resources, competitiveness and responsibility.
