Title Management of Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies in Livestock Feeds and Feeding
Abstract To support countries with economies in transition and developing countries in the control and prevention of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), the project Capacity Building for Surveillance and Prevention of BSE and Other Zoonotic Diseases, involving collaboration between the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Safe Food Solutions, (SAFOSO, Switzerland) and national veterinary offices in partner countries, and funded by the Government of Switzerland. The aim of the project is to build capacity, establish preventive measures and analyse risks for BSE. Partner countries are thus enabled to decrease their BSE risk to an acceptable level or demonstrate that their BSE risk is negligible, and thereby facilitate regional and international trade under the Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) of the World Trade Organization (WTO). A brief project summary is included as an appendix to this course manual.
