(a)no animal, carcase, ovum, semen or embryo shall be moved to or from the premises;

(b)an inventory of all animals on the premises is kept, recording, for each species–

(i)the number dead;

(ii)the number alive which appear to the occupier or keeper to be infected with bluetongue; and

(c)this inventory is kept up to date to take account of animals which are born or die, including details of the dates of birth and death of such animals;

(f)carcases are destroyed, buried or disposed of in such manner as an inspector may direct.

(2) A veterinary inspector or an inspector acting under the direction of a veterinary inspector may also serve such a notice on the occupier of premises (“the first premises”) whose location, geographical situation or contacts with other premises where bluetongue is known or suspected to exist (which other premises may be in Scotland or elsewhere) provide grounds for suspecting the existence of bluetongue, exposure to it or the presence of vectors on the first premises.
