The national Veterinary Ordinance was approved by the National Assembly Standing Committee on 29 April 2004 and took effect from 01 October 2004. The Veterinary Ordinance has provided an important legal basis for the prevention and control of animal diseases and epidemics, for animal quarantine and slaughtering and for state control of veterinary medicines and veterinary jobs. However, after 10 years of implementation, some shortcomings in the Ordinance have been revealed regarding its practical application and long-term vision. Therefore, the members of the National Assembly Standing Committee have agreed that it is necessary to develop and establish a Veterinary Law.
