Introduction

The WOAH Members are obligated to assign a national representative for the WOAH, named the WOAH Delegate. The Delegate is appointed by the national government and the Member’s Chief Veterinary Officer (Head of the Animal Health/Production Department) is most frequently appointed as the delegate. The World Assembly of Delegates, which is comprised of the Delegates of all Member Countries and meets at least once a year, is the highest authority of the WOAH. The Delegates have the obligation to notify animal diseases present in their country/territory and should ensure that standards, guidelines, and resolutions are duly implemented. The Delegates are also responsible for bringing disease information and the WOAH standards and guidelines to the attention of their governments and all related public and private stakeholders. All WOAH activities in the country are channeled or implemented through the consent/information of the national delegate.
