Argentina: new requirements for the means of transport of live animals

The National Health and Quality Service (SENASA) established new technical requirements for the sanitary authorisation of the means of transport of live animals.

Friday 16 January 2015 (3 years 3 months 4 days ago)

The National Health and Quality Service (SENASA) established, last December, new technical requirements for the sanitary authorisation of the means of transport of live animals.

The SENASA Decision 581/2014, published on December 22nd in the Official State Gazette, sets up a National Sanitary Registry of Means of Transport of Live Animals, and establishes that there will be new technical requirements for their authorisation relative to the conditions for the loading and the transport.

The stipulated conditions are compulsory for all the new authorisations, whilst the means of transport already authorised according to the SENASA Decision No. 97/99 have a period of 180 days for their adaptation as of December 22nd 2014.

According to the new regulations, the vehicles for the transport of live animals must be designed and built in such a way that the animals can be loaded and unloaded easily, avoiding any kind of damage. They must have ventilation spaces that reduce the adverse weather conditions and that favour the well-being of the animals during their transport; smooth internal and external surfaces without cracks or tears that are easy to clean and disinfect; and floors, surfaces, doors, baseboards and protections appropriate for the transported species.

The regulation also establishes the conditions for foreign vehicles that transport imported animals or animals in transit through Argentina.
