As of plan,it will still use the seal of the Department of Animal Health while waiting for the new one.
According to the regulation, owner of live animal products must have the certification when they transport these products out of cities or provinces. The batch will be considered to be illegal without certification and inspectors will destroy it.
The the management board was assigned some duties such as issuance of animal quarantine certification for processing factories, transportation companies.
However, because the Department of Animal Health and the board did not work together well before, there has been a pause in the issuance of the certification which badly affected transportation of pork and chicken products into cities and provinces to supply to restaurants, retail stores, and cater companies in industrial parks citiwide.
