Animal Welfare Act Contingency Plan Final Rule
and its Impact on Animal Transporters
Presented by Dr. Jeleen Briscoe - USDA - APHIS
Under the Animal Welfare Act Contingency Plan Final Rule, dealers, exhibitors, research facilities, intermediate handlers, carriers and other entities regulated under the Animal Welfare Act are now required to take steps to be prepared for emergencies and disasters. An emergency plan, also referred to as a “contingency plan,” safeguards the animals should an emergency or disaster occur and supports the transporter’s response and recovery from emergencies most likely to affect animal welfare both in transit (vehicle emergencies) and at transport hubs (facility emergencies).
This webinar will provide an overview of the rule and encourage dialog and strategizing on how best to encourage all-hazards emergency preparedness for regulated transportation facilities that meets AWA standards.
