Transport of animals - Certificate of Competence

Wool House - sheep_14841

Due to the ongoing issues with COVID-19 a decision has been made to temporarily suspend WATO sessions until further notice.

We do however encourage that you continue to register your interest via your regional office (details below)

The NFU apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding

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 EU regulations. 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 EU legislation
