Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations implement in Scotland Commission Decision 2001/848/EC amending Commission Decision 2001/740/EC (concerning certain protection measures with regard to foot-and-mouth disease in the United Kingdom) for the third time.

They amend the restrictions on imports and exports of certain animals and animal products contained in the Import and Export Restrictions (Foot-and-Mouth Disease) (Scotland) (No. 3) Regulations 2001 (“the principal Regulations”) to continue the effect of those restrictions, with amendments, until midnight on 31st January 2002.

The principal Regulations are amended to permit the dispatch from Scotland of sheepmeat and goatmeat, and farmed game of species susceptible to foot-and-mouth disease, from those areas of Scotland from which such exports were prohibited, as set out in the Schedule to these Regulations. The Regulations also add Dundee to the list of ports of import, require 3 working days notice of relevant imports by importers, and alter the requirements for handling carcases of wild game.

The areas referred to in regulation 6 of the principal Regulations are the council areas listed in Schedule 1 to the principal Regulations as inserted by these Regulations. The Administrative Unit is used by the European Commission to designate areas of the United Kingdom for the purpose of allowing exports.

Regulation 2(5)(a), (6) and (7) corrects errors in the principal Regulations.
