If you deal with animal transport or imports, there are strict laws that you must comply with regarding animal imports, rabies control and animal transport.
For information about how your business can be legally compliant, contact us using the online form below. Alternatively contact us on 01482 300 300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We advise and enforce the animal health laws along with HM Revenue and Customs and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs DEFRA.
We are also responsible for enforcing controls during disease outbreaks, for example ‘bird flu’ and Foot and Mouth.
If you exhibit or train any performing (vertebrate) animal, you must be registered with us under the Performing Animals Act. The Act also covers cruelty and neglect connected to the training or exhibition.
