Transport of animals - Certificate of Competence


As of January 2008, anyone transporting livestock or poultry in connection with economic activity and over 65km will need to hold a Certificate of Competence to conform to GB rules on animal welfare. Countryside members can book a place on workshop for £60 plus VAT.

  • This allows transportation of animals on domestic journeys under eight hours within the UK
  • The price includes the workshop, test, notification of your results and the Certificate of Competence
  • Passing the test will ensure you comply with compulsory GB rules on animal welfare
