Consultation description

Defra, the Welsh Government and the Scottish Government sought comments on proposals to refine the animal welfare inspection regime in Great Britain in order to better target inspections to farms with an increased risk of non-compliance with animal welfare legislation. Possible new criteria are identified for the Animal Health & Veterinary Laboratories Agency’s (AHVLA) risk model for allocating inspections to claimants under cross compliance regulations. In particular, it is proposed that membership of a farm assurance scheme or a certified organic scheme, be included in the risk model for 2012 and beyond. Views were also sought for ways in which further efficiencies in animal welfare inspections can be achieved.
