to the Commission
Rule 138
John Howarth (S&D)

 Subject:  The potential impact of Brexit on the transportation of CITES listed species for use in conservation breeding programmes across the EU
 Answer in writing 

I note that UK-issued certificates of approval of means of transport pursuant to Articles 18 and 19 of Council Regulation (EC) No 1/2005 will no longer be valid in the Union from the moment the UK becomes a third country. UK transporters who want to continue their professional activities in the Union will have to apply for the relevant certificate of approval with one of the 27 remaining Member States. I also note that UK-issued certificates of competence for drivers and attendants will no longer be valid and that new authorisations will need to be acquired.

How many new licenses have been granted to UK operators?

What impact studies there have been on the effect of a No-Deal Brexit on animal welfare?

Specifically, what Brexit preparations have been made concerning CITES listed species?
