From protecting the environment, securing animal health to product safety – 3 study visits you can still register for

Study visits

On Wednesday 12 October delegates at our conference will be attending 1 of 12 different study visits. This week we want to feature 3 of these visits where there is still time to register.

Product safety and ease of moving goods across borders

London Gateway Deep Water Port facility is a state-of-the-art, highly automated deep-sea container port on the same site as one of Europe’s largest logistics parks. Delegates will visit the Port facility with London Port Health Authority, HMRC and Trading Standards to explore how the safety of non-food goods entering the UK are assured.

Protecting the Environment – Waste and recycling

Grundon is the UK’s largest family-owned supplier of integrated waste management and environmental solutions, providing total waste management services for the reduction, reuse, recycling, recovery and disposal of waste. This includes the collection, treatment, recovery, recycling and disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste and electronic equipment (WEEE). Delegates will visit the Grundon site with the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and Environment Agency to highlight the importance of interaction between regulators and business in delivering effective regulation.

Securing animal health and welfare in transport

Heathrow animal reception centre (HARC) is a world leader in the care of animals during transport. Last year 16,000 dogs and cats, 400 horses, 200,000 reptiles, 2000 birds and 28 million fish passed through Heathrow Airport. Delegates will visit the Animal Reception Centre and hear from DEFRA, Port Health, the Petcare Association and the OrnamentaL Aquatics Trade Association and the Royal Society for the Protection of Animals to see how animal welfare standards are set and secured.
