IATA to improve, widen CEIV net

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) says 2018 probably will see a pilot program for CEIV-Live Animal certification, as well as the potential of CEIV Fresh for perishables.
The live-animal CEIV certification would build on IATA’s current Live Animals Regulations (LAR), that require that anyone who transports, accepts, handles or loads animals be familiar with the specific needs of the individual species, ensuring the animals remain safe, healthy and in humane conditions. LAR guidelines have been adopted as the national standard by several countries and as the minimum standard by the European Union, as well as adopted as a reference point by several international organisations and government agencies.
 
The new CEIV certification would target improvement areas, including the reduction of animal stress, injury and death, the improvement of compliance with standards and regulations, and an overall increase in the level of professionalism in the industry.
