Poland, Hungary | Positive response to our sheep transport document

The national competent authorities of Poland and Hungary respond in a very positive way to our handout about sheep transport.

Based on our experience and legal knowledge, TSB|AWF prepared a document summarising the most frequent violations found during the transport of sheep, especially lambs. In 2018 and this year before Easter – peak time for lamb exports to Italy – we are sending the handout to Chief Veterinary Officers (CVO) of Poland, Hungary and Romania.

We are getting a very positive reply from Hungary on actions taken to improve the situation, and Polish CVO published our document on their website, among other materials prepared by their office! We are happy and continue to monitor the changes.
