Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Disease Control (Interim Measures) (Scotland) Order 2002 (“the principal Order”). It amends the 20 day standstill on the movement of animals contained in articles 3, 4 and 5 of the principal Order, as follows.

It lifts the controls contained in the principal Order in relation to camelids and elephants.

It allows animals which are located in the areas of the Orkney Islands Council, the Shetland Islands Council or Comhairle nan Eilan Siar, and which have been marketed there, to be marketed on the Scottish mainland within the 20 day “standstill” period, provided they have been kept separately from other stock, in accordance with the provisions of Article 5 of the principal Order.

The Order also substitutes for the requirement that persons having access to a market shall wear rubber boots, a requirement that such persons shall wear “robust footwear which is capable of being properly cleansed and disinfected”.

A breach of the terms of the principal Order or of a licence issued thereunder constitutes an offence under the Animal Health Act 1981.

A Regulatory Impact Assessment has not been prepared for this Order.
