Catering waste from a means of transport from outside Northern Ireland

25.—(1) A person shall not feed or cause or permit to be fed to any livestock or allow any livestock to have access to any catering waste brought into Northern Ireland, and originally intended for consumption on the means of transport in which it was brought and to which Article 21 does not apply or any feeding stuffs which have been in contact with such catering waste

(2) Catering waste shall not be landed in Northern Ireland from any vessel, aircraft, hovercraft or road or other vehicle except in leak-proof bags which are immediately placed in a leak-proof container which is closed by a tightly fitting lid or other cover which prevents spillage and both that container and its lid or other cover are capable of being cleansed and disinfected.

(3) A person shall not remove catering waste, or permit it to be removed, from any place where it has been landed except in accordance with a licence issued by the Department.

(4) Subject to paragraph (3), the owner or person in charge of the vessel, aircraft or road or other vehicle from which the catering waste is landed shall, under such supervision as the Department may require, take that catering waste or cause it to be taken in a container, which complies with the requirements of paragraph (2), to the nearest place approved by the Department where it must be incinerated or immediately buried.

(5) Any container, and its lid or other cover, used to transport catering waste in accordance with this Article shall be thoroughly cleansed and disinfected with an approved disinfectant immediately after each such use.

(6) A person shall not discharge or cause or permit to be discharged from an aircraft over Northern Ireland or from an aircraft, vessel or hovercraft within 3 miles of the coast of Northern Ireland any catering waste unless such discharge is required in the interests of the safety of the passengers, crew, animals or birds carried on such aircraft, vessel or hovercraft.
