Elaboration of Veterinary Framework Acts
A veterinary framework act lays down the basic structure of veterinary supervision, such as for animal health, public health, foodstuffs, feeding stuffs and veterinary medicinal products. The correct structure of this basic legislation is essential for a smooth and successful empowerment and interaction between the relevant services. The main references are the World Organisation for Animal Health OIE
We carry out impact assessments and evaluations in preparation for the implementation of food and veterinary legislation as well as evaluations of existing legal act(s). This might include stakeholders’ interviews and economic impact assessment and/ or cost benefit analysis. The evaluations will e.g. take into account issues such as relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficacy and potential added value of using the legislation.
