(b)incineration;

(c)burning other than in an incinerator, or burying, if—

(i)it is in a place where access is difficult; or

(ii)the quantity of by-product and the distance to premises in which disposal is permitted under this Article do not justify transporting it;

(f)treatment at a knacker’s yard approved under Article 17 or feeding to zoo, circus or fur animals, recognised packs of hounds or maggots farmed for fishing bait at premises registered under Article 16, provided that the material consigned is—

(i)a by-product referred to in paragraph (b), (c) or (g)(i) of the definition of high risk material in Article 2(1) (provided that it is not from an animal slaughtered as a result of the presence or suspected presence of a notifiable disease listed in Annex I to Council Directive 82/894/EEC (on the notification of animal diseases within the Community)(1)); or

(2) If the Department serves on the person in charge of any animal by-product a notice certifying that—

(a)the by-product is from animals infected or suspected of being infected with an epizootic disease and should not be transported because of health risks;

(b)the by-product contains, or is suspected of containing, residues or pathogens which could constitute a risk to human or animal health and which could survive rendering; or
