The European Union and Animals Used for Clothing

The European Convention for the Protection of Animals Kept for Farming Purposes is the parent legislation to the many farming directives recently enacted in the EU. The Convention applies to animals bred for the production of food, wool skin or fur or for other farming purposes.  This is important because these laws create consistent treatment of farm animals throughout all the EU member states.
