EFSA’s ALPHA unit Public Consultation – Protection of animals during transport

EFSA’s ALPHA unit is launching a Public Consultation with the aim to involve stakeholders in our work on the Farm to Fork mandates on protection of animals during transport. EFSA will be interested in stakeholders’ opinion on whether our interpretation of this mandate covers relevant transport practices and areas of concern, and what practical difficulties in complying with the current animal welfare legislation exist. We are also interested in data on microclimatic conditions experienced by animals during transport. Interested parties are invited to submit their comments by the indicated deadline. When submitting the comments, specific reference to the line and page numbers to which the comments relate must be made. Additional data or files to support the comments may be submitted using the relevant function in the digital form.
