Global standard for airfreight of animals launched

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has recently launched a new standardised global certification programme to improve the safety and welfare of animals travelling by air.

The Center of Excellence for Independent Validators for Live Animal Logistics (CEIV Live Animals) provides stakeholders across the air cargo supply chain with the assurance that any CEIV Live Animals-certified companies operate to the highest standards in the transportation of animals.

The CEIV Live Animals programme is based on the IATA Live Animals Regulations (LAR), the worldwide standard for transporting animals by air. The scheme aims to increase the level of competency, operations, quality management, and professionalism in this field, as well as reinforce training and compliance across the supply chain.

"Just as CEIV Pharma helped to provide quality standards for temperature-sensitive healthcare shipments, the new programme extends that expertise to the field of transporting and handling of animals," explained Nick Careen, IATA's senior vice president of airport, passenger, cargo, and security.

HLPFI readers will recall that in our November/December 2017 issue, we spoke to industry experts about the issues associated with moving animals by airfreight, and IATA's work on the development of this certification.
