PART 5Markets

Traceability

26.—(1) An operator of a market must have in place a system to ensure that, at all times that an animal is at the market, the holding from which the animal was moved to the market can be ascertained.

(2) The system must provide for the division of animals into batches, each of which has allocated to it a lot number which is unique to that batch.

(3) The operator of the market must enter the date of sale for which the animal entered the market and the lot number of the last batch to which the animal belonged before leaving the market—

(a)in the register; and

(b)on the movement document.

Replacement identification of animals at markets

27.—(1) Articles 14 to 19 of this Order do not apply to an operator of a market.

(2) Where the means of identification of an animal on its way to or at a market has been removed or lost or has become illegible, the keeper at the holding of destination of that animal must apply replacement identification to the animal in accordance with article 15 as soon as possible but, in any event—

(a)before the animal is moved from that holding; and

(b)no later than 28 days after the animal arrives at that holding.

Electronic movement documents

28.  A market operator may complete an electronically generated movement document in any form provided that it—

(a)contains the information described in Section C of the Annex, the date of the sale for which the animal entered the market and the lot number allocated under article 26(2);

(c)is printed and signed by the market operator.

(a)an animal’s unique number on a movement document;

(b)an animal’s unique number in a holding register; or

(c)the numbers of animals in any batch bearing a particular flockmark or herdmark,

where a contingency plan has been agreed between the local authority and the market or slaughterhouse operator.

(2) A contingency plan agreed under paragraph (1) must set out the conditions which must be met by the market or a slaughterhouse operator and the circumstances in which, provided those conditions are met, the exemptions in paragraph (1) will apply.

(3) A contingency plan agreed under paragraph (1) must require a market or slaughterhouse operator to obtain the consent of the local authority on every occasion when that market or slaughterhouse operator wishes to apply the exemptions in paragraph (1).
