On 20 March 1996, UK ministers acknowledged that a new variant of human spongiform encephalopathy, called variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob Disease, had emerged almost certainly as a consequence of consuming BSE-contaminated food. This chapter describes the unfolding crisis and its impact on policy in the UK and Europe. In particular, this provoked new sets of regulations and new forms of surveillance and monitoring.

Keywords:   variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob Disease, crisis, new regulations, surveillance and monitoring
