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.
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.
