FGBI “ARRIAH” Took Part in the 8th Meeting of the Steering Group on Animal Welfare

The 8th Meeting of the Steering Group on Animal Welfare took part in Bern, Switzerland, in May 2017. The meeting was organized within the OIE Platform on Animal Welfare in Europe. The Russian Federation was represented by A. Metlin, Deputy Head for Research and Development of the FGBI “Federal Centre for Animal Health” subordinated to the Rosselkhoznadzor (FGBI “ARRIAH”). The meeting agenda included such issues as long-distance transportation, slaughter, control of stray dog population, etc.

The OIE recognizes that in many countries there is a significant gap between the generally accepted animal welfare standards and the real situation in regards to this issue. The organization supports regional strategies on animal welfare and international standard implementation plans. In order to facilitate implementation of the OIE standards by the Veterinary Services of the OIE Member States the organization established a platform on animal welfare in 2013. The FGBI “ARRIAH” is one of the coordinators of the activities ensuring animal welfare in the Russian Federation.
