ConditionDescription of facility or control procedure by which the condition will be metStaff member(s) responsible for supervision
THE ABOVE DETAILS MUST NOT BE CHANGED WITHOUT THE PRIOR AGREEMENT OF YOUR SUPERVISING VETERINARY SURGEON AND FOOD POLICY DIVISION, DANI, DUNDONALD HOUSE.

1.  All raw materials for use in production for despatch to another member State or third country must be identifiable to species of origin.

2.  There must be a system at the establishment to ensure it is possible to identify the origin of bovine raw material contained in any eligible goods for despatch and to trace that raw material through each stage of preparation.

3.  There must be a system for recording all amounts of incoming bovine raw materials and outgoing bovine raw materials and products containing them which ensures that it is possible to cross-check consignments entering or leaving the establishment.

4.  Eligible goods must be:

  • unloaded

  • processed

  • stored

  • handled

  • loaded

  • transported

separately from, or at different times from, other bovine products.

5.  For cold stores there must be chambers for storage of eligible goods which meet the conditions for despatch to another member State or third country which can be locked and sealed so that products cannot be added or removed without breaking the seal (lockable rails in chillers are not sufficient).

For other stores, there must be clear and effective segregation (though this need not take the form of a chamber locked under seal) between relevant goods which are eligible for despatch to another member State or third country and any bovine products which are not.

6.  There must be sufficient storage space for eligible goods.

7.  Chambers used for the storage of eligible goods must not be used for the storage of any other bovine products.

8.  Official seals on cold stores or any transport must not be broken without official supervision.

9.  Fresh meat, minced meat, meat preparations, meat products and other products of animal origin of bovine origin which meet the conditions for despatch to another member State or third country must be marked with the additional mark in the form prescribed in Schedule 4.

10.  The additional mark must be removed from fresh meat, minced meat, meat preparations, meat products and other products of animal origin when they cease to meet the conditions for despatch to another member State or third country or are despatched for sale onto the UK market.

11.  Instruments or labels for applying the additional mark may be ordered only with the authorisation of an inspector. All new supplies of instruments or labels for applying the additional mark must be delivered into the control of an inspector.

12.  Instruments for applying the additional mark, labels bearing the appropriate additional mark, serially numbered healthmark labels and official seals must be maintained and applied under official control.

13.  There must be adequate facilities to enable an inspector to carry out his functions under Bovines and Bovine Products (Trade) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1998.

14.  Appropriate information must be made available to enable the inspector to list on certificates or other accompanying docu-mentation all establishments approved under regulation 8(2) in the production chain of the eligible goods.

Include details of any other necessary controls.

15.  Despatch of eligible goods for export/export production must be under supervision of an inspector.

16.  Consignments of eligible goods for despatch must be assembled in such a way as to enable identity and physical checks to be carried out.

17.  Eligible goods for export must be transported under official seal.

18.  There must be unique identification of eligible goods for despatch to allow a full description to be provided on certificates.
