The European Commission adopted a proposed regulation on animal transport on July 16th 2003 which will radically overhaul animal-transport rules in Europe. It involves much stricter rules on journeys for animals of more than nine hours. Comment: The significance of this development is that the EU may in due course seek third-country compliance with these rules in order for animal products to be allowed entry into the EU market. ACP meat-product exporters will therefore need to closely monitor EU efforts to promote such international observance of EU rules.
