Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Anne E. Jensen (ALDE)

 Subject: Increased risk of accidents at work for lorry drivers
 Answer(s) 

Danish lorry drivers have drawn to my attention the fact that Council Regulation (EC) No 1/2005 of 22 December 2004 on the protection of animals during transport and related operations and amending Directives 64/432/EEC and 93/119/EC and Regulation (EC) No 1255/97 has increased the risk of accidents at work for the drivers concerned since 2005.

Under Chapter III, point 1.12(d)  of Annex I to the abovementioned regulation, drivers are required to separate sexually mature male animals from females before transport, which increases the risk of accidents at work for the drivers, as they are required to handle animals that are in a state of excitement.

What is the Commission’s view of the increased danger to drivers resulting from the requirement to separate male from female animals under Regulation (EC) No 1/2005 of 22 December 2004?
