IATA implements CEIV programme to protect animals during transport

IATA has launched its CEIV programme for the transport of live animals that is based on the Live Animals Regulations (LAR) and input from industry experts, including veterinarians, animal welfare experts, government agencies and non-governmental organisations. IATA's senior vice president of airport, passenger, cargo and security Nick Careen said: "Animal owners and shippers rely heavily on airlines to carry their precious cargo," reported London's Air Cargo News. "For those shipping live animals the CEIV Live Animals programme will provide a reliable quality benchmark." Before the launch of the programme, a live pilot was carried out with the help of London Heathrow's Animal Reception Centre (HARC) and Air Canada Cargo. "We look forward to continuing to work closely with IATA to further enhance the programme and support its worldwide adoption by companies across the supply chain in the pursuit of operational excellence in the handling and transport of live animals by air," HARC assistant director, port health and public protection, Robert Quest said.
