On 31 May ANIT organised a hearing on Transport of species (poultry, rabbits) inadequately covered by Regulation 1/2005, and remaining vulnerable categories of animals (gestating, end-of-production animals). Certain species do not have clear or specific provisions on their welfare within Regulation 1/2005, despite the fact that they are covered by its scope.

Therefore the aim of this hearing was to look into the transport situation for these species and examine how provisions could be applied. Five experts had been invited and their presentations were followed by an exchange of views with Members.
