Working Equid Standards Library of Information

ICWE member organisations supported the development of Chapter 7.12 of the Terrestrial Animal Health Code on Welfare Standards for Working Equids which was accepted by WOAH member countries in 2016.

The four organisations have a number of resources, in various formats, that provide information, evidence and support for the implementation of the standards for the welfare of working equids.

This library provides supplementary information for the articles and lists those resources, with links to the relevant website for access.

It has been set up to support governments in the implementation and regulation of the guidelines in Chapter 7.12 by providing information particularly on how to measure compliance.

These resources have been developed by the four ICWE organisations and are not endorsed by WOAH and may go beyond the scope of the standards in order to optimise welfare.
