Abstract

The effect of these amendments to the principal Regulations is that animal by-products may no longer be sterilised. Staining is now required in all cases, except where specified in regulation 5(2), 6(2) or 7(2) of the 1995 Regulations. The effect of the amendments is that staining is not required where an animal by-product is immediately moved in the manner specified in regulation 6(4) or, as the case may be, 7(3) of the 1995 Regulations to premises approved under article 7 of the Animal By-Products Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/646, as amended) for rendering there or to other premises for incineration there in accordance with article 10 of that Order. The exemption from the requirement as to staining or sterilisation imposed by regulations 6 and 7 which is contained in regulation 5(2)(a) of the 1995 Regulations and which operates in favour of poultry by-products is removed and replaced with an exemption which operates in favour of poultry heads and feet which have been subjected to a post-mortem veterinary inspection and which, during the course of the inspection, did not show gross pathological lesions indicating disease communicable to man or animals (reg. 2(4)).
