Animal Transport Certification
The project was assisted by an Advisory Board of stakeholder organisations active in the sector of long journey transport of live animals.
Three meetings between the WP leaders and the Advisory Board were organised. They served as a platform for discussion: members of the Board commented the project outcomes achieved and gave their advices about the work in progress.
An important issue of debate was the development of a “Welfare Plus” certification scheme.
The first meeting of the Advisory Board was held in Brussels on the 5th of June 2012. The second Advisory Board meeting was organised in Bologna on the 6th of February 2013. The third and conclusive Advisory Board took place on 8th May 2014 in the Hague, The Netherlands, following the Final conference of the Animal Transport Certification and Control Post Project.
