During the last meeting of the Council of Ministers of Agriculture of the EU, at the request of the Swedish delegation, supported by Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands, ministers discussed the need to improve the enforcement of existing legislation on animal welfare during transport and whether existing legislation in this area should be updated.

Delegations agreed on the importance of the issue, highlighting different aspects, from the ethical question to the one of unfair competition. Some underlined the key role of uniform implementation and enforcement of the existing rules, while a few others were also open to legislative changes.

The Commission insisted on the better enforcement of existing rules and recalled that the legislation in force already offered many tools, including sanctions, to promote the welfare of animals during transport. It further described actions undertaken to promote better enforcement and encouraged member states to use the full potential of existing rules and enforce them correctly.
