Answer given by Ms Kyriakides on behalf of the European Commission
1. The materials developed through the ‘Animal Transport Guides’ project include guidelines, factsheets and videos, which have been widely spread on social media and disseminated during specific events in several Member States and non-EU countries to which animals are exported. The materials produced have been translated in several languages, including Russian, and are available at a dedicated website. This website counts more than 15 000 visits every year, of which 15.8% are returning users. The visitors often accessed the website through Facebook, Twitter or the Commission’s website.
2. The positive effects of these guides cannot be evaluated in isolation and should be viewed from an overarching perspective of all the Commission’s actions to improve the implementation of the current legislation on animal transport and animal welfare in general.
