7.—(1) Where an inspector is satisfied that a means of transport or any equipment either—

(a)has not been cleansed and disinfected in accordance with this Order; or

(4) An inspector may serve a notice on any person who is required to carry out cleansing and disinfection in accordance with Articles 3 or 4 requiring him to carry out the cleansing and disinfection as specified in the notice instead of in accordance with the Schedule if he is satisfied that this is necessary for animal health purposes.
