This chapter discusses the spread of BSE to other European countries, along with the impact of BSE on policy regimes of European governments and of the European Commission. BSE policy-making structures in the European Commission and in Ireland, Switzerland, France, Portugal, and Germany are contrasted. A key variable between regimes was the contrasting responses to the tension between protecting human health, protecting veterinary health, and maintaining stability in food and agricultural markets.

Keywords:   spread of BSE, BSE policy, European Commission, Ireland, Switzerland, France, Portugal, Germany
