If you replace animals or equipment of significant effect on animal welfare or health at the circus, a new inspection must be carried out. You have to report such changes to the County Adminstrative Board in the county where your circus currently is.
The County Administrative Board may also come to inspect the circus when the season has already started.
If serious or repeated irregularities are detected at an inspection, the circus may be banned from begining or continuing its tour.
You need a plan for how the animals are to be trained.
You need to make sure that a record is kept of all the animals at the circus. This record shall show, among other things, any diseases and injuries and how they have been treated. Dates for care of hooves are also to be recorded. You need to keep the record for at least three years.
Circus animals shall every day get the opportunity to move freely outdoors, unless the wheather is extremely bad. They are to have a dry and clean place to lie down, and find shade if they need it.
The animals must not be to troubled by visitors, and must not be on public display while tethered.
