Funded by the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, a workshop on the implementation of OIE standards to facilitate safe trade in the Middle East and Asia Pacific regions is organised in Bangkok, Thailand on June 13-15, 2017. The workshop aims to develop a better understanding of the OIE standard setting process and the implementation of these OIE standards to apply the appropriate sanitary measures and facilitate safe trade.

Specifically, the workshop aims to provide participants with:      

an understanding of the OIE standards and how they relate to the WTO framework;

2.  how to implement these standards to ensure safe trade, while avoiding unjustified sanitary barriers to trade; and 

3. an understanding of, and how to, participate in the OIE standard setting process.
