The Dutch Society for the Protection of Animals adjusts existing Better Life criteria and draws up new Better Life criteria. Before these amended/new criteria are adopted, they are published for a specified period and circulated for consultation. During the consultation period, the parties concerned will be able to respond in writing to the proposed changes based on their practical knowledge and experience. If desired, an additional hearing will be organised to provide and receive additional information.

The responses received will be taken into account by the Dutch Society for the Protection of Animals when further adjusting these criteria. After this, they are permanently adopted and republished on the website of the Better Life label Foundation with a date on which these criteria come into effect.

The consultation is currently only offered in Dutch.
