Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Dogs (Licensing and Identification) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1983 by setting out, for the period 1st January 2006 up to and including 31st December 2009, the shape, dimensions and colour of licence identification discs issued by district councils.

While the shape and dimensions of the disc remain unchanged throughout the period, its colour varies each year so that it must be blue where a dog licence or block licence is issued in 2006, orange where such a licence is issued in 2007, green where such a licence is issued in 2008, and yellow where such a licence is issued in 2009.

The Regulations revoke the Dogs (Licensing and Identification) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2001.

The Department of Agriculture for Northern Ireland was renamed the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development by Article 3(4) of the Departments Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/283 (N.I. 1))
