Epidemio monitoring can be supplemented by voluntary and mandatory herd health programs, especially those that provide a regular veterinary presence on the farm. By decision No. 1/2006 of the Joint Management Committee of 9 November 2006 amending annexes i, iii bis, iiib and xi of Annex IV of the Association Agreement (AA), the European Union and Ukraine are establishing harmonised certificates for the export to Ukraine of animal products from EU Member States. As soon as these certificates are agreed, they become available in trace, which can be issued by certification officers in the Member States. Certificates agreed between the EU and Ukraine may contain a reference to an export library containing more technical information useful to the signatory. decision No 2/2003 (2003/747/EC) of the EC-Andorra Joint Committee of 8 October 2003 on the implementation of the Veterinary Protocol, completing the agreement in the form of an exchange of letters between the European Economic Community and the Principality of Andorra, signed on 15 May 1997 in Brussels The signing of the Veterinary Agreement and the Agreement on Mutual Recognition of Compliance Assessment Bodies means that products imported into the UK after Brexit will be treated in the same way as they are currently in force under EU legislation, ensuring that trade between the UK and New Zealand works well. The Press Association expects up to 36 countries to sign these agreements with the UK. The Agricultural and Trade Negotiations Minister Jim Sutton and Food Safety Minister (responsible for the official certification of the health of animal exports) Annette King, said they were delighted that the agreement was finally formalized. The most important consideration in this context is therefore the quality of veterinary infrastructure. No other factor can be evaluated without full confidence in veterinary administration. In particular, their ability to detect and control the onset of a disease and to provide meaningful certification is essential. Since 1999, a veterinary agreement has been reached between the EU and Canada on health measures to protect public and animal health in the trade in live animals and animal products. This agreement was suspended on 21 September 2017, while the provisions and achievements of the agreement were transposed into the Comprehensive Economic Agreement (CETA), which came into force on an interim basis on that date.

Specific information on veterinary issues and food safety is contained in Appendix 1. In a joint statement with Beef and Lamb, Tim Ritchie, Chief Executive officer of the Meat Industry Association, said that the signing of the agreement, as well as the recent UK advice on accepting EU health certificates after 29 March, meant that the sector would be assured that the existing rules would remain the same.
