Veterinary contingency planning in the Nordic-Baltic countries aims to prepare national veterinary administrations and stakeholders to respond speedily and effectively to emergency situations caused by contagious animal diseases. Such diseases may have a disastrous impact on the livelihood of people working in the livestock sector and related industries. The Nordic and Baltic countries have by large adopted very similar guidelines for the development of animal health contingency plans; guidelines based on the four pillars: disease prevention, preparatory arrangements, response and recovery. This report contains information on the conduct of a Nordic-Baltic mini-seminar on the handling of animal by-products and other products in relation to outbreaks of serious transmissible diseases.

These differences were based on local conditions and national legislation as well as other authorities involved.
