Public consultation: draft guidance on stunning methods

EFSA is seeking feedback on its draft guidance to assist applications for new or modified stunning methods to be used at slaughter.

The guidance aims at simplifying the structure and information required to put together applications. It also contains a section on data needed to demonstrate that a new stunning method is equivalent to existing ones in terms of welfare.

Interested parties can submit comments until 24 April 2018.
