New rules on the welfare of animals during transport came into force on 5 January 2007 (Source: Council Regulation (EC) No 1/2005 on the protection of animals during transport and related operations). The Regulation is implemented in the UK by means of national legislation. The Regulation aims to improve animal welfare by raising transportation standards and applies to the transport of all live vertebrate animals in connection with economic activity.

The Regulation requires by 5 January 2008, those handling and transporting farm livestock, poultry and horses by road on journeys of over 65km (approximately 40 miles) must have been trained in the Regulation’s technical provisions and be independently assessed for competence.
