Introduction to the code of welfare for transporting animals
Anyone who is organising or is responsible for animal transport needs to be aware of any relevant codes of welfare and comply with the codes and the general provisions of the Animal Welfare Act 1999.
This code applies to everyone transporting any live animal (land-based or aquatic) within New Zealand, whether over land, by air, or in New Zealand's territorial and inland waters (including to and from the Chatham Islands).
You can read the code of welfare on this web page. You can also download a copy of the code.
