The standards in the Terrestrial Code are based on the most recent scientific and technical information and have been formally adopted by the World Assembly of OIE Delegates. They are also recognised as the international standard for animal health and zoonotic diseases within the World Trade Organization Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures.
The Terrestrial Code should be used by the Competent Authorities of importing and exporting countries for early detection, reporting and control of agents pathogenic to terrestrial animals, and, in the case of zoonoses, for humans, and to prevent their transfer via international trade in terrestrial animals and their products, while avoiding unjustified sanitary barriers to trade.
This 25th edition incorporates modifications to the Terrestrial Code agreed at the 84rd General Session in May 2016. It includes an updated version of the table of contents, user’s guide and glossary, as well as a new chapter covering the welfare of working equids (7.12.) (volume I). Additionally, volume I includes revised text in the following chapters: notification of diseases, infections and infestations, and provision of epidemiological information; criteria for the inclusion of diseases, infections and infestations in the OIE list; diseases, infections and infestations listed by the OIE; evaluation of Veterinary Services; monitoring of the quantities and usage patterns of antimicrobial agents used in food-producing animals; slaughter of animals, killing of animals for disease control purposes; animal welfare and broiler chicken production systems; and animal welfare and dairy cattle production systems. The following chapters in volume II were also updated: infection with bluetongue virus; infection with epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus; infection with Rift Valley fever virus; infection with Trichinella spp.; infection with peste des petits ruminants virus; and infection with Taenia solium (porcine cysticercosis).
