DEFRA - AVRIL 2011 - DISEASE MITIGATION AND CONTROL EVIDENCE PLAN 2011. DEFRA SEPT 2006 Guidance note on the application of Regulation (EC) 882/2004. DEFRA - 2011 - Defra’s Evidence Investment Strategy: 2010-2013 and beyond2011 update. DEFRA - Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 on official controls performed to ensure the verification of compliance with feed and food l. The EU White Paper on Food Safety (PDF 144 KB) (published in January 2000) identified the need to establish a European Community-wide framework for official controls.
The resulting Community Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 882/2004) was devised to provide a more comprehensive and integrated, risk-based, EU-wide, "farm to table" approach to official controls in the areas of feed, food, animal health and animal welfare. Regulation (EC) No 882/2004 aims to improve the consistency and effectiveness of official controls across the European Community and consequently to raise standards of food safety, consumer protection, prevention of the spread of animal diseases, the humane treatment of animals, and to provide a greater degree of transparency for consumers about enforcement arrangements.
DEFRA - 2011 - UK Zoonoses Report 2010. Zoonoses are diseases and infections which are naturally transmitted between vertebrate animals and man.
A zoonotic agent may be a bacterium, virus, fungus, parasite, or other communicable agent. Zoonoses cover a broad range of diseases with different clinical and epidemiological features and control measures. We publish an annual Report on Zoonoses in the UK with summaries of trends and sources of zoonotic infection in humans, animals, food and feedstuffs in the UK. These reports are compiled from data obtained from national surveillance systems and control programmes, research programmes and from data submitted to the European Community by agencies contributing to the Report.
The report is likely to be especially useful to professionals dealing with zoonotic diseases, but should also give non-specialists an insight into the subject. Zoonoses reports.
