These documents provide useful advice and guidance in relation to exporting slaughter pigs to EU Member States via an EU approved assembly centre.


All animals for export must be accompanied by either a journey log (for journeys over 8 hours to other EU Member States) or an Animal Transport Certificate (for all other journeys). These forms have been updated in line with the new Animal Health Law regulations for EU trade and are only to be used from October 11th 2021 onwards.
