Wed 22 April 2020 12:00 until Thu 23 April 2020 14:00

Venue LEGOLAND hotel and conference, Aastvej 10, 7190 Billund Denmark

Postponed, due to the Corona virus crisis. The new dates for the workshop are now 26 and 27 October 2020.

Attendance through invitation only.

The focus is on training of inspectors in the member-states, i.e. further training/education needed to keep the inspectors up to date on legislation, new science, dilemmas between legislation and praxis in relation to pig-welfare in the whole chain (on-farm, transport, slaughter).

Goal for the workshop

  • To discuss and promote reflection on the usefulness of training of inspectors of animal welfare in European member states.
  • To get feedback to EURCAW-Pigs on our suggestions for standard training of inspectors (in relation to EURCAW’s dossiers and indicators). Examples will be presented at the workshop for discussion.
