SCHEDULE 1Methods of cleansing and disinfection

1.  Where animals are transported in a means of transport without first having been placed in a container, all feedingstuffs to which animals have had access, excreta, bedding, other material of animal origin, mud and other contaminants shall be removed from the means of transport using any appropriate means. All internal surfaces of the vehicle (other than the cab) and, if they are visibly contaminated, the external surfaces and the wheels of the means of transport shall be washed with water, steam or where appropriate chemicals or chemical compounds so that they are free of contamination which could spread disease.

2.  Where animals are transported in a container, the container shall be cleansed in accordance with the preceding paragraph as if it were a means of transport or, where appropriate, destroyed. In addition, the means of transport itself shall be cleansed in accordance with the preceding paragraph where it has been soiled so as to create a risk of spreading disease.

3.  Fittings, accessories or equipment (whether detachable or not) shall be cleansed with water, steam or where appropriate chemicals or chemical compounds so that they are free of all contamination which could spread disease.

4.  Disinfection shall be carried out after cleansing has been completed, using a disinfectant approved for the purpose under or in accordance with the Diseases of Animals (Approved Disinfectants) Order 1978(1) or, where an inspector has required the use of a particular cleansing agent under regulation 6, that cleansing agent.
