Notice of intended slaughter

3.—(1) The Scottish Ministers may, if they think fit, cause any offspring animal to be slaughtered.

(2) Subject to paragraph (5) below, where the Scottish Ministers propose to cause an offspring animal to be slaughtered under this paragraph a veterinary inspector shall serve a notice of intended slaughter in Form OC 2 on the person appearing to that inspector to be the owner or person in charge of the animal specifying the premises at which the animal is to be slaughtered.

(3) Following the service of a notice in Form OC 2 an inspector may insert or administer an implant for the purpose of electronically tagging an offspring animal.

(4) No person except an inspector shall remove or otherwise interfere with an implant inserted or administered under paragraph (3) above.

(5) Where an animal is presented at any premises for slaughter for human consumption and a veterinary inspector is of the opinion that the animal is an offspring animal, the Scottish Ministers may cause the animal to be slaughtered under this paragraph without any notice in Form OC 2 being served on the owner or person in charge of the animal before it is slaughtered.

(6) Where an offspring animal is slaughtered in accordance with paragraph (5) above an inspector or officer of the Scottish Ministers shall, as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter, give notice to the owner or other person in charge of the carcase of the slaughtered animal that the animal has been slaughtered as an offspring animal.

(7) If an animal to which a notice in Form OC 2 relates is moved from premises under a licence issued by an officer of the Scottish Ministers which is subject to a condition, the notice in Form OC 2 shall, providing the animal is moved in accordance with the condition, cease to have effect on the expiry of the period in respect of which the condition applies.

(8) A notice in Form OC 2 may at any time be withdrawn by a notice in Form OC 3 served by a veterinary inspector on the person appearing to that inspector to be the owner or person in charge of the animal to which the notice in Form OC 2 relates.
