Uitgebreide informatie
The member States of the Council of Europe, signatory hereto,
Considering that the aim of the Council of Europe is to achieve a greater unity between its Members for the purpose of safeguarding and realising the ideals and principles which are their common heritage;
Convinced that the requirements of the international transport of animals are not incompatible with the welfare of the animals;
Animated by the desire to safeguard, as far as possible, animals in transport from suffering;
Considering that progress in this respect may be achieved through the adoption of common provisions regarding the international transport of animals,
1.
Each Contracting Party shall apply the provisions governing the international transport of animals contained in this Convention.
2.
For the purposes of this Convention international transport is understood to be any movement which involves the crossing of a frontier. Frontier traffic shall, however, be excluded.
3.
The competent authorities of the country of dispatch shall decide whether the transport is in conformity with the provisions of this Convention. Nevertheless the country of destination or intermediate countries may dispute whether any particular transport conforms with the provisions of this Convention. Such a consignment shall, however, be detained only when it is strictly necessary for the welfare of the animals.
4.
Each Contracting Party shall take the necessary measures to avoid or reduce to a minimum the suffering of animals in cases when strikes or other unforeseeable circumstances in its territory impede the strict application of the provisions of this Convention. It will be guided for this purpose by the principles set out in this Convention.
