IATA has announced that the UAE is the second country in the Middle East to adopt its Live Animals Regulations (LAR) for the transport of live animals to and from the Emirates.
The LAR represents the worldwide standard for safe and humane transport of live animals ñ whether it be a pet, an animal transported for zoological or agricultural purposes or for any other reason by commercial airlines. Regulat-ions specify minimum requirements for the international transport of animals and wildlife and indicate what precautions airlines, shippers, cargo agents and animal care professionals should take on the ground and in the air.
The UAE now joins a list of 45 countries including the European Union, Oman and the United States ñ that have officially recognised LAR and included them as part of government legislation. It is hoped that more countries in the Middle East will follow the UAE.
