27 May 2008
The first meeting of Advisory Forum (AF) representatives on Animal Health aims to stimulate a dynamic exchange of information and opinions between EFSA and the Member States for strengthened cooperation in the field of Animal Heath and Welfare. Seeking feedback on EFSA’s role in contributing to the pan-European strategy on animal health and welfare risk assessment, EFSA will acquaint the national AF representatives on the past and current activities of the AHAW Panel. EFSA will report on the outcomes from the assessment of a questionnaire previously distributed to the Member States, following which AF representatives are invited to share their interest and opinions on the need for networking and exchange of information on animal diseases and welfare. The meeting will also provide the opportunity to discuss a possible procedure allowing quick and efficient cooperation between EFSA and the Member States in the field of animal health.
