Abstract

The effect of the amendments made to the 1999 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 1999 Regulations. Staining is not required where an animal by-product is immediately conveyed in the manner specified in regulation 6(4) or, as the case may be, 7(3) of the 1999 Regulations to premises approved under Article 7 of the Animal By-Products Order (Northern Ireland) 2002 for rendering there or to other premises for incineration there in accordance with Article 12 of that Order. A definition of "approved premises" is inserted.
