Summary

The KEZ standards have detailed rules for animal transport. There are specified factors, which always have to be kept in mind: age, sex, behaviour of animals, environmental conditions (temperature, humidity), physiological requirements, duration of transport. It is preferable to transport carcasses rather than live animals. (KEZ Standards, Part 2, 12.1).

Difference

As EU Regulation 2092/91 (Annex I/B6.2) the KEZ makes an effort to prevent stress of transported animals; however KEZ is more detailed with regard to the prevention of it.

Justification

The standard-setting body could not give a justification.
