Request ante-mortem and post-mortem inspection


If you slaughter animals whose meat is intended for human consumption, you must have the animals officially inspected before and after slaughter. This concerns:

  • Cattle
  • Pigs
  • Sheep
  • Goats
  • horses and other ungulates,
  • Poultry
  • rabbits,
  • Farm game.

The obligation to inspect also applies to domestic slaughter.

Information on the food chain shall be provided.

Slaughterings shall be notified to the competent authority in good time (at least 24 hours in advance).

Emergency slaughter must be considered separately from this, in any case the competent authority must be involved without delay.

Contact the veterinary office of your county or city.

Commercial slaughter may only be carried out (from 1.1.2010) in establishments approved by the authorities.
