Transport of animals by land

 

Best practices, guidelines and recommendations on transport of animals by land from OIE Member countries and OIE partners are made available on this page to facilitate the implementation of the OIE Standards on animal welfare

We are therefore encouraging all OIE Delegates, supported by their OIE National Focal Points and OIE partners organisations to share with the Platform Secretariat (by e-mail: rsr.bruxelles@remove-this.oie.int) any best practices in one of the 3 OIE official languages (English, French and Spanish) which are in line with the OIE Standards on animal welfare and help their implementation.
