No recent discussions have been held with EU member states regarding the introduction of legislation to ban fur farming or fur sales.

We are continuing to build our evidence base on the fur sector, which will be used to inform any future action on the fur trade. This includes commissioning the Animal Welfare Committee to explore current responsible sourcing practices in the fur industry.
