Summary

Animals should have adequate access to daylight. The area for letting in daylight should be at least 5% of the floor area (KRAV standards paragraph 5.2.18).

Difference

EU Regulation 2092/91 Annex 1 paragraph 8.1.1 states that the building must permit plentiful natural ventilation and light to enter, but the KRAV standards are more specific.

Justification

The KRAV standards are more specific and easier to verify.
