Community of Practice

Welcome to Community of Practice (CoP). The CoP is currently undergoing internal testing and will be ready for launch in May 2024.

The aim of this platform is to support the exchange of knowledge amongst Competent Authorities in EU member states regarding the implementation of animal welfare regulations relating to ruminants and equines. It is password protected, and only members of Competent Authorities will be permitted to register.

The CoP is structured around topics – with a focus on those within the EURCAW Ruminants & Equines work programme. There is also an opportunity for you to initiate a topic and influence future work programmes. We may also ask for your feedback on current EURCAW activities.

If you are employed by a Competent Authority, with responsibility for ruminants and/or equine welfare, in an EU member state and would like to be part of this community: Please take the opportunity to register here.
