New point 6. Veterinary legislation
    •   Veterinary legislation is a fundamental element
        of quality supporting good governance.
    •   Legislation should be suitably flexible to allow
        efficient responses to changing situations.
    •   It should define and document responsibilities
        and structure of the organisations.
    •   A similar demonstration by VS in charge of
        veterinary public health activities.
