Administrative / biographical background:
This series was opened in 1991 by the Meat Hygiene Division to capture papers on policy on imports of meat and other animal products for human consumption, animal by-products not for human consumption, animal products for research purposes and composite products, and also to review legislation. Due to various restructuring over the years the team remained much the same but were either merged or renamed with Animal Health (BSE and International Trade); International Animal Health. The work then came under the remit of Global Animal Health (GAH).
While GAH still do a small amount of licensing most of the operational work was transferred to Animal Health - the legacy information relating to operational work before transfer to the Animal Health remains with GAH. GAH continue to work closely with Animal Health who now do most of the delivery/operational work.
