Factors informing a decision to permit suppressive vaccination or protective vaccination

This section has no associated Executive Note

12.—(1) The Scottish Ministers shall take into account the following factors in deciding whether to permit suppressive vaccination or protective vaccination–

(a)the risk of an outbreak of the disease–

(i)in the United Kingdom becoming widespread in any part of the country;

(ii)spreading to Scotland with imported susceptible animals, carcases or other things liable to spread disease;

(iii)spreading from Scotland with exported susceptible animals, carcases or other things liable to spread disease;

(iv)spreading to or from Scotland because of the prevailing meteorological conditions;

(b)any threat from the disease to animals in–

(i)a laboratory, zoo, wildlife park or other premises where susceptible animals are kept principally for the purposes of display and education of the public, or an enclosed area principally used for shooting;

(ii)premises not falling within (i) of a body, institute or centre which–

(aa)keeps susceptible animals only for the purposes of conservation, display and education of the public, or scientific research or breeding of such animals for research; and

(bb)is approved in relation to those animals under regulation 9 of the Animal and Animal Products (Import and Export) (Scotland) Regulations 2000(1); or

(iii)other premises where susceptible animals are kept for scientific purposes or purposes related to conservation of species or farm animal genetic resources; and

(c)the criteria in Annex X of the Directive.

(2) Where, having taken those factors into account, the Scottish Ministers consider that permitting suppressive vaccination or protective vaccination is the most appropriate means of preventing the spread of disease, they shall undertake a vaccination programme.

(3) If the Scottish Ministers decide to undertake a vaccination programme they shall grant one or more licences permitting suppressive vaccination or protective vaccination.
