Regional Representation for Americas

The OIE Regional Commissions

Five Regional Commissions have been formed to promote cooperation, study specific problems encountered by the Veterinary Services and organize cooperation activities on a regional level. The Bureau of the Regional Commissions (President, Vice-President and Secretary General) are renewed each three-year:



Asia, Far East and Oceania 


Middle East

Each Commission organizes a conference, usually once every two years, in one of the countries of the region. These conferences are devoted to technical issues and to the organization of regional cooperation for the control of animal diseases. Regional programmes can be created to strenght surveillance and control of priority diseases, particularly in those regions where the OIE has established a Regional Commission. Click here to acces the Americas Regional Conferences.

Regional Commissions report on their activities and submit recommendations to the World Assembly of Delegates.
