Abstract

These Regulations provide for the carrying out of ante and post mortem examinations on animals slaughtered in premises licensed under the Abattoirs Act, 1988 to determine the fitness of meat for human consumption. They also prescribe the grounds on which animals or meat may be declared unfit for human consumption. Regulation 4 specifies powers of veterinary examiners for purposes of these Regulations. The slaughter of an animal which has been declared by a veterinary inspector to be unfit for slaughter for human consumption is prohibited unless the slaughter is for humane reasons.
