Full text not available from this repository.

Summary

No specific rules for transport of animals are laid down since this is ruled by the Swiss ordinance on livestock.

Difference

The EU Regulation 2092/91 has specific rules for the transport of organically raised animals: transport has to be done in a gentle manner and prevent any unnecessary stress. Electroshock to move animals is prohibited. Allopathic tranquilizers are prohibited.

Justification

BIO SUISSE has no requirements for the transport of animals since the Swiss ordinance for livestock already defines the restrictions.
