EU animal welfare strategy

Some delegations pointed out the need for measures to ensure global competitiveness of EU operators vis-à-vis third countries that do not apply the same standards on animal welfare.

The Council was briefed by the Commission on an EU strategy for the protection and welfare of
animals 2012-2015 (5398/12).

Several Member States welcomed the main elements proposed in this strategy, such as having an
harmonised implementation of the current legislative framework in this area, informing better
consumers or optimise synergies with the CAP. However, some delegations pointed out the need for
measures to ensure global competitiveness of EU operators vis-à-vis third countries that do not
apply the same standards on animal welfare.

This new four year strategy aims to further improve the protection and welfare of animals in the EU
primarily through the possibility of establishing a new comprehensive legislative framework for
animal welfare and via the reinforcement of existing actions.
