Details

Use this form to apply for a certificate of competence (CoC) if you:

  • still have a Welfare of Animals (Slaughter or Killing) (WASK) licence - this licence must be replaced by a CoC
  • currently handle an animal before restraining it, kill an animal with a free bullet, or shackle poultry without a CoC - you now need a CoC for these activities

The Food Standards Agency must receive your CoC application and fee by midnight on 8 December 2015.

Before you apply, read:

Your application must include a passport-sized photo (45 mm x 35 mm) of yourself.

It must also include payment of, or confirmation that you’ve paid, £25.
