Report published by the European Commission on 6 March 2018 relating to the implementation of Regulation (EU) No 576/2013 on the non-commercial movement of pet animals.
Regulation (EU) No 576/2013 (also known as the Pet Regulation) lays down the animal health requirements applicable to the non-commercial movement into Member States of pet animals that are accompanying and under the responsibility of their owner. It is applicable since 29 December 2014. The Regulation establishes a list of animal species to which harmonised animal health requirements should apply when animals of those species are kept as pet animals and moved for non-commercial purposes. This list takes account of their susceptibility to - or role in - the epidemiology of rabies. Dogs, cats and ferrets are animals of species susceptible to rabies and are listed in Part A of Annex I to the Regulation.
This document fulfils the Commission’s obligation to present a report on the implementation of Article 5 of the Pet Regulation. It draws mainly on the outcome of a consultation held with competent authorities in certain EU Member States and one European Free Trade Association (EFTA) country, Norway, on their experience with the implementation of this Article.
