4 Foreword The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Food Supply has successfully endeavored to have animal health care addressed in a coordinated manner by the different government levels. To this end it has sponsored a series of legislative pieces on the preparation of animal health programs. The series consists of administrative rules and normative and services instructions that regulate the programs, so as to ensure comprehensive attention to animal health. These rules and norms have been drawn with wide participation of representatives of professional institutions and of users involved with the issue. As the major tool for carrying out initiatives in the field of Animal Health, the National Agricultural and Livestock Health and Inspection Policy seeks to establish guidelines and define institutional responsibilities for creating the conditions for the protection of the national herd, as well as preventing harm to public health. This Manual puts together the major legislative pieces that govern this process, issued between 1934 and The full text of each edition of the Manual is available in digital format on MAPA s web site. It will be continuously updated as new legislation is enacted. We trust that this Manual will be used by Brazil s Official Agricultural and Livestock Health and Inspection Services as a valuable source of information and knowledge.
