Guidance notes for conditions for providing boarding for cats

July 2018

Do you own or work in a Boarding Cattery?

Defra has recently introduced a significant change with the Animal Activity Licensing Regulations 2018.

As from 1st October 2018, staff running or working for Boarding Catteries must have a minimum of an Ofqual regulated Level 2 qualification in a relevant subject.

Or, to meet the Higher Standard, a member of staff with a relevant Ofqual regulated Level 3 qualification must be present during the working day.

The AIM Awards Level 3 Diploma in Feline Care, Behaviour and Welfare Qualification meets the Higher Standard Animal Activity Licensing Regulation requirements for Boarding Catteries. This qualification will be available as from 12/11/18 for enrolments.
