The 2014 edition of the Terrestrial Code is a two-volume publication. Volume one contains recommendations that apply to a wide range of species, production sectors and/or diseases (so-called ‘horizontal standards') and volume two contains recommendations on specific diseases (so-called ‘vertical standards') including recommendations on agent inactivation and on surveillance and risk assessment.
The development of these standards and recommendations is the result of the continuous work since 1960 of one of the OIE's Specialist Commissions, the OIE Terrestrial Animal Health Standards Commission. This Commission draws upon the expertise of internationally renowned specialists to prepare draft texts for new articles of the Terrestrial Code or revise existing articles in the light of advances in veterinary science.
The value of the Terrestrial Code is twofold: that the measures published in it are the result of consensus among the veterinary authorities of OIE Members, and that it constitutes a reference within the World Trade Organization Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures as an international standard for animal health and zoonoses.
The OIE Terrestrial Code is a reference document for use by Veterinary Authorities, import/export services, epidemiologists and all those involved in international trade.
