Course programme

Welfare during transportation regulation – Certificate of Competence.

EU Regulation 1/2005 on the protection of animals during transport and related operations (implemented in England by the Welfare of Animals (Transport) (England) Order 2006) came into effect on 5th January 2007. These rules affect many individuals and companies involved in the movement and animals including livestock producers as well as hauliers. The new Regulation has a number of key implementation dates, and the milestone is 5th January 2008 by which time all those transporting cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, equine and poultry more than 65km by road will be required to hold a certificate of competence to do so. There are different Certification requirements covering the under and over 8-hour journeys.

We can arrange training and assessment or assessment only in partnership with the Cumbria - Proficiency Test Committee.
