Home > Standard Setting
One of the OIE's important missions is to safeguard world trade by publishing health standards for international trade in animals and animal products. To this end, the OIE regularly updates its international standards as new scientific information comes to light, following its established transparent and democratic procedures. The only pathway for adoption of a standard is via approval of the World Assembly of Delegates at the General Session in May each year.
Significant updates achieved at the 80th General Session in 2012 include, among others, the adoption of the following standards:
Terrestrial Animal Health Code:
Aquatic Animal Health Code:
The OIE commits to continuously update its standards to ensure they are based on the latest scientific knowledge available.
