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,
Animals shall be provided with adequate space and, unless special conditions require to the contrary, room to lie down.
The means of transport and containers shall be constructed so as to protect animals against inclement weather conditions and marked differences in climatic conditions. Ventilation and air space shall be adapted to the conditions of transport and be appropriate for the species of animals carried.
Containers in which animals are transported shall be marked with a symbol indicating the presence of live animals and a sign indicating the upright position. Containers shall be easy to clean, escape-proof and shall be so constructed as to ensure the safety of the animals. Containers shall also allow for the inspection and care of the animals and shall be stowed in a way which does not interfere with ventilation. During transport and handling, containers shall always be kept upright and shall not be exposed to severe jolts or shaking.
During transport animals shall be offered water and appropriate food at suitable intervals. Animals shall not be left more than 24 hours without being fed and watered. This period may, however, be extended if the journey to the destination where the animals are unloaded can be completed within a reasonable period.
Solipeds shall wear halters during transport. This provision need not apply to unbroken animals.
When animals are tied the ropes or other attachments used shall be strong enough not to break during the transport under normal conditions, and long enough to allow the animals, if necessary, to lie down and to eat and drink. Bovines shall not be tied by the horns.
Solipeds, unless in individual stalls, shall have their hind feet unshod.
Bulls over 18 months should preferably be tied. They shall be fitted with a nose-ring for handling purposes only.
