IFIF Cooperation Agreement with the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE)

The OIE IFIF cooperation further aims to strengthen links between feed safety and food safety. IFIF works with the OIE to contribute to improved animal health and productivity, which in the end leads to a positive contribution to public health.

In October 2012, IFIF signed a Cooperation Agreement with the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), based in Paris, France. This agreement aims to facilitate and strengthen cooperation between the two organisations, in particular with the regards to the prevention and management of infectious diseases, including zoonotic disease, as well as the support for the development, updating and implementation of OIE standards and guidelines.

The cooperation further aims to strengthen links between feed safety and food safety. IFIF is strongly supportive of this important cooperation with the OIE to contribute to improved animal health and productivity, which in the end leads to a positive contribution to public health.

IFIF continues to strengthen its relationship with the OIE and inputs in the development, updating and implementation of OIE standards and guidelines to contribute to improved animal health and productivity.
