UK expands State Veterinary Service:

The UK's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) is combining the State Veterinary Service, Dairy Hygiene and Egg Marketing Inspectorates, and Wildlife Licensing and Registration Service into a single agency, called Animal Health. The move follows a review which recommended consolidating inspection and regulatory functions, in order to reduce the time businesses have to spend on paperwork and other regulatory activities. The change, which takes effect on April 1st, is also intended to create a "single, coherent identity" that industry and the public can easily recognize, says DEFRA.
