Codes vs regulations: How best to enforce animal welfare in New Zealand?
Rodriguez Ferrere, Marcelo
In a suite of new regulations, New Zealand has introduced a series of infringement offences designed to better enforce animal welfare. In doing so, however, those regulations relegate existing enforcement mechanisms, including codes of welfare. This article will compare and contrast the status quo with the new system, and query whether these regulations are in fact the best way of improving animal welfare enforcement.
