Aquatic Animal Health Code 2013
2 Aquatic Animal Health Code 2013
9290449160 / 9789290449164 New
 
2013. 30cm. Pp.xvi, 293, ii. Softbound

The aim of the Aquatic Animal Health Code (Aquatic Code) is to contribute to improve animal health and welfare of aquatic animals worldwide and to assure the sanitary safety of international trade in aquatic animals (amphibians, crustaceans, fish and molluscs) and their products. This is achieved through the detailing of health measures to be used by the Competent Authorities of importing and exporting countries to avoid the transfer of agents pathogenic for aquatic animals or humans, while avoiding unjustified trade barriers.

The value of the Aquatic Code is twofold : firstly, the sanitary measures recommended are the result of consensus among the Veterinary Authorities of OIE Members, and secondly, it constitutes a reference within the WTO SPS Agreement as an international standard for animal health and zoonoses.

This, the 16th edition, includes four new chapters : Ch 3.2. Communication; Ch 6.4. Monitoring of the quantities and usage patterns of antimicrobial agents used in aquatic animals; Ch 6.5. Development and harmonisation of national antimicrobial resistance surveillance and monitoring programmes for aquatic animals; and Ch 7.4. Killing of farmed fish for disease control purposes.

This edition also includes revised information on the following subjects: glossary; notification of diseases and epidemiological information; criteria for listing aquatic animal diseases; diseases listed by the OIE; import risk analysis; welfare of farmed fish during transport; welfare aspects of stunning and killing of farmed fish for human consumption.

Out of print, new edition due September 2014.

9290447060 / 9789290447061 New
 
2008. 30cm. Softbound.

In order to ensure confidence in test results, at both national and international levels, test methods must be properly validated with respect to their intended application, and they must be performed under appropriate control by proficient laboratory analysts. In short, confidence requires that laboratories operate to a recognised standard of quality.

This 2nd edition of the OIE Quality Standard and Guidelines for Veterinary Laboratories brings the OIE Quality Standard into line with the 2005 version of the ISO/IEC standard. As it is an interpretation of ISO/IEC 17025, laboratories that comply with the OIE quality standard also operate in accordance with the ISO requirements for testing laboratories.

This publication also contains companion guidelines developed by the Biological Standards Commission and approved by the International Committee of the OIE. They provide, in a convenient booklet format, practical texts that complement the Terrestrial and Aquatic Manuals. The previous guidelines on test method validation, reference reagents and laboratory proficiency testing have been updated, and a new one added on validation of tests using the polymerase chain reaction.

World Animal Health 2011 presents a synthesis of animal health information from OIE Members as well as from non OIE Member countries. This publication provides a unique tool for all those involved in animal production, wildlife disease surveillance, international trade in animals and animal products and the epidemiology and control of animal diseases, including zoonoses.

This new edition carries over the improvements already included in the previous edition by allowing countries and territories to report their animal health status in domestic and wildlife populations separately, when relevant. This helps in improving surveillance and transparency in the notification of diseases in wild species, without putting in place unjustified trade barriers that are not compliant with the provisions of the specific chapters of the OIE Terrestrial and Aquatic Animal Health Codes.

Contents : Volume 1. Animal health status and methods for disease control and prevention by alphabetical order from A to L -- Volume 2. Animal health status and methods for disease control and prevention by alphabetical order from M to Z ; Animal population ; Zoonoses by country/territory and by disease ; Veterinary personnel ; National reference laboratories ; Vaccine production.

Most of the recent emerging diseases are of animal origin, and nearly all are potential zoonoses. Over the last decade, nearly one new emerging disease has appeared each year and around 75% of them are zoonotic in nature. West Nile fever and avian influenza epidemics, and the recent rabies upsurge in Eastern Europe bear witness to the vitality of emerging diseases the world over.

This third revised and enlarged French edition of P.N. Acha and B. Szyfres’s original work, Zoonoses et maladies transmissibles communes à l’homme et aux animaux, comes just at the right time. It updates both the earlier French edition and the English edition 'Zoonoses and Communicable Diseases Common to Man and Animals' (PAHO/WHO, 2003) and contains information obtained using new technologies, incorporating the findings of scientific progress in various fields. The wealth of documentation contained in this volume will be of interest to a broad audience.

2008. 28cm. Pp.viii, 569. Photos & figures (some colour). Binding : ebook.

Major changes in ecology, climate and human behaviour have favoured the proliferation of urban pests. Alarmingly, the dramatic rise in urban sprawl has led to city suburbs becoming the natural habitat of ticks, rodents and other pests.

These changes make timely a new analysis of the effects of present-day urban pests on health. Public Health Significance of Urban Pests identifies the public health risk posed by various pests and suggests appropriate prevention and control measures.

This book also formulates policy options for all levels of decision-making on the future management of pests and pest-related diseases.
