star this property answer text <p>The Government’s proposal for a common rulebook on goods only relates to those technical and product safety rules necessary to provide for a frictionless border. The proposal does not extend to wider single market legislation nor animal welfare and would not fetter our abilities to restrict or ban live animal exports.</p><p> </p><p>The White Paper published on 12 July 2018 explains: “By being outside the CAP, and having a common rulebook that only applies to rules that must be checked at the border, the UK would be able to have control over new future subsidy arrangements, control over market surveillance of domestic policy arrangements, an ability to change tariffs and quotas in the future, and the freedom to apply higher animal welfare standards that would not have a bearing on the functioning of the free trade area for goods – such as welfare in transport and the treatment of live animal exports.”</p> more like this

Local Authorities will take prosecution action when serious welfare issues relating to the transport of live animals have been identified.</p><p> </p><p>Officials in Defra have been working with the Food Standards Agency (FSA), the Animal and Plant Health Agency and representatives from the Local Authorities’ National Animal Health and Welfare Panel, to improve the process for referring welfare cases relating to transport, identified by FSA’s Official Veterinarians at slaughterhouses. This is so prompt action can be taken by the relevant Local Authority when breaches of animal welfare legislation are identified.</p><p> </p><p>APHA carry out supervised loadings on high risk commercial consignments of livestock for slaughter exported from England to ensure compliance with Council Regulation (EC) No 1/2005 on protection of animals in transport. These checks include, but are not limited to vehicle specifications to ensure the transport is designed, constructed in a way to avoid injury and suffering and to ensure that transporters and vehicles have the appropriate authorisations and certificates in place.</p><p> </p><p>APHA also carry out proportional portal checks on sheep and other livestock being imported or exported. When supervised loadings and portal checks are completed APHA will take regulatory action if non compliances are identified.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>
