[F111.(1)A section 2C licence must include such conditions relating to the general care and accommodation of protected animals kept at the place specified in the licence as the Secretary of State considers appropriate to ensure—U.K.

(a)that the environment, housing, freedom of movement, food, water and care provided for each such animal is appropriate for the animal’s health and well-being;

(b)that the conditions under which any such animal is transported are appropriate for the animal’s health and well-being;

(c)that any restrictions on the extent to which each such animal can satisfy its physiological and ethological needs are kept to the absolute minimum;

(d)that the environmental conditions in which such animals are kept are checked daily;

(e)that the well-being and state of health of such animals is monitored by a suitably qualified person in order to prevent pain or avoidable suffering, distress or lasting harm; and

(f)that arrangements are made to ensure that any defect discovered and any avoidable pain, suffering, distress or lasting harm discovered is eliminated as quickly as possible.

(3)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (2) a standard set out in Annex 3 of the Animals Directive is not to be treated as being an “applicable standard” if the Annex specifies a date from which the standard is to have effect and that date has not been reached.
