Training for inspection of pig welfare in EU

EURCAW-Pigs develops standards for training in pig welfare on-farm, during transport and in slaughterhouses. During this 26 hours workshop, draft standard courses are discussed with National training capacities - such as national reference centres - developing training at national level in EU.

Organised by EURCAW-Pigs

Mon 26 October 2020 12:00 until Tue 27 October 2020 14:00

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

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.
