About the group

Established in March 2022, within the EU Platform on Animal Welfare, the new sub-group on transport will provide technical expertise and opinions to the Commission on the ways the Union’s instruments can be adapted to improve animal welfare during transport.

The discussion will be of a consultative nature and will participate in the preparation by the Commission of a legislative proposal revising Council Regulation (EC) No 1/2005 on the protection of animals during transport.

The composition of the working group is available in the Register of the Commission expert groups.
