Register for an event at the animal exhibition, animal market or animal fair

If you want to hold events where animals are sold, exchanged or traded, you must apply for a permit from your competent veterinary authority before starting the activity. This type of events with animals includes, for example, animal fairs, animal exhibitions or animal markets.

The granting of the authorisation shall be decided within a period of four months from receipt of the application by the competent authority. Depending on the scope and difficulty of the examination of the existence of the conditions for granting the permit, this period may be extended by up to two months. Therefore, plan enough time for the granting of permission before starting your activity.

Only after receiving the permit may you start your activity.
