Reflection Board supports EURCAW-Pigs in identifying demonstrators and inspiring examples
Update of EURCAW-Pigs’ activities
The Board was represented by 9 delegates, and was welcomed by Hans Spoolder, director of EURCAW-Pigs, and by Kornilia Zafeiropoulou, on behalf of unit G5 of DG SANTE. The Centre’s achievements and plans were presented in each of the five activity areas required by law (Art 96 of ‘The Official Controls Regulation’), as part of the current Work Programme (WP) 2021- 2022. The five activities were presented by the Centre’s coordinating team, and the Board was asked to reflect on these. Each presentation was followed by a constructive discussion and helpful suggestions, as summarized in the report. Links to the presentations can be found in the report and on this webpage.
Good practice examples
One of EURCAW-Pigs’ activities is to identify farms, transport companies and abattoirs demonstrating good practices of implementation of EU legislation. The Board indicated that they can support EURCAW-Pigs in this activity, as in industry many good practice examples are being developed. The Centre preferentially would like to receive pictures or videos with short explanations, or information already published on the internet (e.g. videos on Youtube). All aspects within the information material should comply with the respective legal requirements. The information material should also not include any advertising.
