Compliance with the following regulation is mandatory. The exhibitor is obliged to immediately take the necessary measures to comply with any reports and observations received from the veterinarian or from the exhibition staff, whether they relate to behavioral rules, animals housing, or their health. 

If the exhibitor does not take adequate measures for the warnings received, the organization reserves the right to not accept its participation in one or more future editions of the Verona Reptiles show, at its discretion.


We would like to remember you that intra-community (EC) movement of animals, feed and other animal origin materials, are regulated by European laws and regulations, like EC Reg. 1/2005, EEC Directive 90/425 and others.

As consequence, law enforcements (finance, forestry rangers, veterinary health), sometimes are controlling both inside shows, both on the way in Italian road and highway.Most frequent problem is lack of authorization, requirements, and health certificates about transport of animals, feed and other animal origin materials, situations that could be punished with heavy sanctions (money) and with confiscation of anmals/goods.

We invite you all to inquire to your official veterinaries (or health system of your country) and providing, if necessary, o regularize your travels, ensuring you'll have not problems during trips and during Italian shows, so to make your trips with peace of mind and security.

Obviously, all those that have complained with requirements and authorization shouldn't fear anything.
