Summary/Abstract: In this paper, the author focuses on the legal regulation of animal transport as a special domain in the legal protection of animal welfare. With reference to the European Convention for the Protection of Animals During International Transport, the Animal Welfare Act of the Republic of Serbia and the accompanying statutory acts on this issue, as well as the Council Regulations (EC) No. 1255/97 and No. 1/ 2005, the author casts more light on the normative framework governing the commer cial transport of animals, without embarking on the analysis of the veterinary and sanitary requirements and respective veterinary and sanitary control of animal transport. The author points to the principal drawbacks in the process of drafting the national statutory acts on animal transport, discusses the degree of (in)compliance of the national regulations on animal transport withthe European legislation on this matter and emphasizes the need to take a wide range of legal measures in order to provide for a more substantial protection of animal welfare during transport
