OIE is revising Rabies Standards

Monday, October 1, 2018

During the past one and a half year ad hoc groups of rabies experts have been working on synchronizing
rabies standards with those of WHO. Already in May 2018 the revised Rabies Chapter of the Terrestrial
Manual which sets standards for veterinary diagnostic laboratories and vaccine manufacturers had been
adopted by the OIE General Assembly. Currently the Rabies Chapter of the Terrestrial Code setting out
standards for the improvement of animal health and welfare and veterinary public health worldwide,
including through standards for safe international trade in terrestrial animals and their products is
under revision.
