Healthy and productive livestock in Indian subcontinent using standard,efficient and safe veterinary biological.

In order to develop CCSNIAH as a self-sustainable independent laboratory system to ensure quality standards of veterinary biologicals in India and South Asian region, it is important to envisage role of laboratory in short- and longterm and to delineate the road map as the vision document of the laboratory. The laboratory aims to cater to needs of stakeholders in livestock health sector by ensuring availability of effective and safe veterinary biologicals in the region, which in turn would support the enhanced productivity and nutritional security. There is an increasing need to emphasize on prevention of diseases to replace excessive and indiscriminate use of antibiotics which is foreseeable through the use of effective and safe immunoprohylactics. The scope of institute would also be extended to supporting better human health through supply of safe livestock products in the emerging scenario of the holistic ‘One Health’ approach. CCS NIAH visualizes to manage the regulatory affairs as per the requirement in changing operating environment and future developments in the fields of biotechnology and veterinary medicine. The main objective of the institute is to ensure the highest level of standards of veterinary biologicals produced or used in India. The expected function of control and regulation of veterinary biologicals through CCSNIAH as ‘ the referral assay laboratory ’ can be effectively achieved by laying down a dynamic road-map through continuous thought process, reviewing and improvements, which will act as a benchmark at every step. Goals and Targets Since the institute has got a vast potential to be a leader in South Asian region, especially amongst the countries of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), it must be prepared to take up the envisaged challenges. These include the quality assurance and control of huge number of veterinary biologicals through the establishment and use of sound regulatory mechanisms. Additionally, the institute should be ready with testing methods for newly developed veterinary vaccines employing the state-of-the-art technologies in future. For this, institute has to have a strong base for research and development. Institute could serve as a common platform to co-ordinate public and private manufacturers for harmonization of veterinary biologicals in India. All the stakeholders should function on the common program to provide uniform quality of veterinary biologicals throughout the country
