EFSA: Harvesting feathers from live geese

EFSA’s Panel on Animal Health and Welfare (AHAW) has launched an online public consultation on its draft scientific report on practice of harvesting feathers from live geese for down production.

The consultation aims to gather the widest range of views to finalise the work and provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive scientific advice to EU decision makers. This second phase of the consultation was preceded by a technical meeting with EU Member States and stakeholders in May 2010.

Interested parties are invited to submit written comments by 2nd August 2010.

EFSA will assess all comments from interested parties which are submitted in line with the criteria. After completion of the public consultation, the EFSA AHAW Panel will consider relevant comments in finalising the report due by the end of 2010. In addition, a technical report on the public consultation will be published.
