Inspector@Work is a new feature in the EURCAW Ruminants & Equines 2023–2024 work programme. It describes the experience of Official Inspectors working across the EU, as they implement animal welfare regulations in the ruminant and equine sectors. The Inspector@Work series is intended to provide a platform for individuals to share some of their learnings, anecdotes, as well as examples that illustrate best practices and challenging situations across these regulatory areas.

The views and opinions presented in the Inspector@Work stories belong to the interviewees, and do not necessarily agree with the views and opinions of EURCAW Ruminants & Equines.
