Licensing regimes which regulate the use of animals generally implement a process whereby an individual must be deemed to comply with a particular set of regulations in order to be granted, and retain, a licence to keep or use animals in a particular manner. The set of regulations will differ dependent on the specific use that the licensee intends to put the animals to. This research will consider the efficacy of the common regulatory model of the licensing regime as a means of regulating animal use in England, with a particular focus on their ability to ensure animal welfare. The research aims to address the gap in available information on the practical application of two pieces of legislation, whose provisions create licensing regimes; The Zoo Licensing Act 1981 (ZLA 1981) and The Welfare of Wild Animals in Travelling Circuses (England) Regulations 2012 (WWATC 2012), introduced under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 (AWA 2006).
