Combating infectious animal diseases in accordance with the Regulation EU2016/429 -Animal Health Law
Comparing to the former regulations, the methods of combating infectious animal diseases established in the Animal Health Law has undergone significant changes in many aspects, including the categorization of diseases, and the need to apply the provisions of this regulation directly may raise doubts both as to their interpretation and to the conduct of the authorities responsible for this area. In particular, this applies to domestic activities and the scope of competences of poviat veterinarians. An additional aspect that hinders the transparency of the application of the Animal Health Law is the principle of delegation of powers to the European Commission to issue delegated and implementing acts that supplement, specify or amend them. Therefore, we are dealing with the need to efficiently navigate the area of many new legal acts, the overall operational knowledge of which becomes indispensable, especially for employees and bodies of the Veterinary Inspectionin Poland.
