Raising Animal Welfare Standards - 11th November 2014

Raising Animal Welfare Standards
at the Time of Slaughter or Killing

Central London

Tuesday 11th November 2014

In our society we expect all animals to be killed and slaughtered in a humane manner regardless of whether it is for food production, skin/fur products or disease control.

From 1st January 2013, existing regulations governing the above were superseded by a new EU directive: Council Regulation (EC) 1099/2009 on the Protection of Animals at the Time of Killing. The implementation of this directive requires new national legislation - the Welfare of Animals at the Time of Killing (England) Regulations (WATOK), which given the complexity of the legal framework the Government is currently considering.

This special symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for local authorities, food producers, animal welfare organisations, faith groups, veterinary interests and other key stakeholders to discuss the forthcoming regulatory changes and their ability to underpin higher welfare standards for animals at the time of slaughter.

I am pleased to advise you that we offer a
20% early registration discount off the standard delegate rates for all bookings received by 7th August 2014. For further details about the symposium, please refer to the enclosed event brochure. Do feel free to circulate this information to relevant colleagues within your organisation.

In the meantime, to ensure your organisation is represented, please book online or complete and return the attached registration form at your earliest convenience in order to secure your delegate place(s).
