Abstract

These Regulations continue to make it an offence to sell for human consumption meat derived from bovine animals slaughtered on or after 29 March 1996 in which, at the time of slaughter, there were more than two permanent incisors erupted, unless it can be shown by reference to certain documentary evidence that at the time of slaughter the animal was no more than two years and six months old. The existing exemption from this prohibition (for meat from bovine animals which were born, reared and slaughtered in any of the countries listed in Schedule 2) is now supplemented by a new exemption for meat from bovine animals which belonged to a herd registered under the Beef Assurance Scheme (regulation 3(2)). The operating rules of the Beef Assurance Scheme are set out in regulation 4 and Schedule 1: conditions of eligibility; conditions of continued membership; conditions for the issue of a slaughter certificate; conditions for the issue of a veterinary certificate.
