ATA is cooperating closely with a number of affiliated organizations trying to set standards for animal welfare and safety in the shipping industry, to prevent illegal trafficking and shipping and to help implementing regulations where possible.




Focuses on animals' safety and welfare

Animals have been transported by air since the early 1930's. In today's modern world, carriage of live animals by air is considered the most humane and expedient method of transportation over long distances.

IATA's Live Animals Regulations (LAR) is the worldwide standard for transporting live animals by commercial airlines. Whether it is a pet, an animal transported for zoological or agricultural purposes or for any other reason, the objective of the LAR is to ensure all animals are transported safely and humanely by air. The 45th edition of the regulations came into effect on 1 January 2019.

It is recognised as a reference organisation by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and in 2018 has a total of 182 Member Countries. The OIE maintains permanent relations with nearly 75 other international and regional organisations and has Regional and sub-regional Offices on every continent.
