TAWC launches report on how a UK/EU CVA would work

January 1, 2024 9:48 pm Published by

TAWC has produced an overview paper to explore the feasibility of a Common Veterinary Area agreement between the UK and the EU, similar to the one currently in place between EU and Switzerland. To enable a successful Common Veterinary Area, there are questions about the degree of conformity required between domestic animal health laws with those of the EU and the potential for departure from those rules, which this report seeks to address. A fuller more technical report sits behind this paper and can be requested by relevant parties.

With the indication that the Labour Party are keen to pursue a CVA and relationships with the EU improving, TAWC hopes this report will be helpful in taking discussions forward.
