Update of the OIE international standards

Several factors influence the need to update international norms and standards, such as:

  • The speed of new knowledge and scientific advances
  • The increase in the human population and animal populations
  • Emergence of emerging diseases
  • Globalization and the need for safe and transparent trade

Therefore, intense participation in the process of elaboration and modification of OIE standards and standards is of fundamental importance. The OIE Regional Representation for the Americas has developed this section so that the procedure and the annual work schedule can be adequately understood, and will make available to the countries the comments received from each of them so that they can share and exchange them. . In this way, it seeks to encourage the active participation of the Region in the process of developing OIE standards.
