This month I would like to highlight the increasing prominence of the issue of animal welfare on the European institutional agenda.

First of all, I would like to stress the adoption in the European Parliament’s Committee of Inquiry into the protection of animals during transport (ANIT) of the report “on the investigation of alleged contraventions and maladministration in the application of Union law in relation to the protection of animals during transport within and outside the Union”. The plenary vote is expected in January 2022. Animal welfare, including during transport, is a day-to-day issue for our profession.

The adoption of this report within the European Parliament and the ongoing evaluation process of the European legislation on Animal welfare are significant elements for our profession and we will keep monitoring closely these topics.
