Principles of risk management
- Risk management is the process of deciding upon and implementing measures to achieve the member’s appropriate level of protection, whilst at the same time ensuring that negative effects on trade are minimized. The objective is to manage risk appropriately to ensure that a balance is achieved between a country’s desire to minimize the likelihood of frequency of disease incursions and their consequences and its desire to import commodities and fulfill its obligations under international trade agreements.
- The international standards of the OIE are the preferred choice of sanitary measures for risk management. The application of these sanitary measures should be in accordance with the intentions of the standards or other recommendations of the SPS Agreement.
