OIE technical standards for ASF

Font size - A A A +

The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) is an intergovernmental, animal health, standard-setting organisation that develops and publishes science-based standards for animal health and welfare programmes, as well as technical standards for the manufacturing and quality control of tests for use in the diagnosis, prevention and control of animal diseases, including African swine fever.

The technical standards for diagnostic tests are developed and updated collaboratively, through an extensive network of scientific experts in OIE Collaborating Centres and Reference Laboratories throughout the world, and in consultation with Member Delegates who review and approve the final texts through a vote at the annual General Session of World Assembly of Delegates of the OIE. These adopted standards are published in the Terrestrial Animal Health Code and the Manual of Diagnostic Tests and Vaccines for Terrestrial Animals.

African swine fever is covered in the Terrestrial Code Chapter 15.1. and the Terrestrial Manual Chapter 3.8.1.
