EFSA’s Panel on Animal Health and Animal Welfare (AHAW) has launched an open consultation on its draft guidance on the assessment criteria for applications for new or modified stunning methods.
The guidance aims at simplifying the structure and information required to put together applications. It also contains a section on data needed to demonstrate that a new stunning method is equivalent to existing ones in terms of welfare.
Interested parties can submit comments until 24 April 2018.
