IATA and ATA signs MoU for adoption of CEIV Live Animals programme

Published on : Thursday, July 11, 2019

During the 45th Annual Conference in Budapest, Hungary the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Animal Transportation Association (ATA) signed an MoU. This was to encourage the industry to adopt The Center of Excellence for Independent Validators for Live Animals  Logistics (CEIV Live Animals).

 

CEIV Live Animals, a standardised global certification programme is  designed to ensure that standards and best practices are in place around the world to protect the welfare of animals being handled and transported.

 

 

 ATA will be encouraging the adoption of CEIV Live Animals among its members as per the terms of the MoU.

 

 

Filip Vande Cappelle, president of ATA said that information, education and training of people involved in animal shipping is an absolute requirement. To secure the highest possible welfare of animals in transport, one needs high standards all along the logistic chain.

 

He thanked IATA for the standards available, rather than re-inventing the wheel ATA chose to collaborate with IATA and get the standards implemented as widely as possible among their members through encouraging adoption of CEIV Live Animals.

 

 

Glyn Hughes IATA’s Global Head, Cargo  said that animal owners, breeders and shippers rely heavily on airlines to carry their precious cargo. As an industry they have a duty of care to ensure that standards and best practices are in place around the world to protect the welfare of these animals. IATA is committed to work with ATA, its members and wider industry stakeholders achieve excellence in the transport of live animals.
