8th meeting of the European Forum of Animal Welfare Councils (EuroFAWC)
The purpose of the forum is to provide an opportunity for discussions about animal welfare amongst European animal welfare advisory Councils. Membership is confined to those bodies within Europe that are established by national Governments to provide strategic and other advice about animal welfare. Membership of the forum is open to all European countries within the OIE definition. If an advisory Council has not been established then a representative of the Government Department with responsibility for animal welfare is invited to attend. The Council of Europe, the OIE, the European Commission and the European Food Safety Authority are also invited to attend each meeting as observers.
