P-001304/2019(ASW)
Answer given by Vice-President Katainen on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: P-001304/2019

The Commission did not consider it necessary to take contingency action in relation to the issue referred to by the Honourable Member. EU contingency measures have been put in place to avoid major disruptions for the EU-27 as a consequence of a disorderly withdrawal of the United Kingdom, but cannot address all inconveniences that citizens and businesses would face in such a situation.

The general principles of the EU contingency measures are set out in the communication ‘Preparing for the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union on 30 March 2019: a Contingency Action Plan’(1).

Even in case of a no-deal scenario, non-commercial movements of pet animals between the European Union and the United Kingdom would be possible. The Commission has published information for travellers in a no-deal scenario, on this and other matters, on 13 November 2018(2).
