Ensuring animal welfare standards in industrial practices

If you require further advice on animal welfare inside animal-based industries, you can find more information on the Animal welfare page on the GOV.UK site. Here you can find industrial standards and advice on protecting animal welfare on farms, in transport at markets and at slaughter.

You can also find further information on animal owners/keepers’ responsibilities towards their animals in the Animal Welfare Act 2006 Legislation should you require further guidance.
