E-004689/2018(ASW)
Answer given by Mr Andriukaitis on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-004689/2018

The European Convention on the protection of pet animals (CETS No 125)(1) is an initiative managed by the Council of Europe, and the EU is not a party to it.

The conditions of keeping pets in the EU, referred to by the Honourable Member, are not governed by EU rules but fall under the sole competence of the Member States. In the light of the above, the Commission is not considering any initiatives in this area.
