You may be required to comply with this code if you intend to handle or use horses in Western Australia.
This code applies to owners, drivers, attendants and railway officials involved in the transportation of horses, including
- waiting periods
- transit rest periods
It establishes minimum welfare requirements for horses being transported, with the aim of minimising stress and injury caused to horses at all stages of transport operations.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
